    Indeed... Stagnation gets me in trouble.

    Heh, losing weight, the yo-yo battle at times. Currently, I'm the eldest male on my father's side of the family not to be type II diabetic, largely due to fat accumulation and my keeping it down. As for change, chance is necessary for life! It's part of exchange of nutrients and waste, it's part of oxygen and CO2 exchange, indeed, the root of exchange is change. Never seek stagnation!

    Thanks. I feel like I’m drinking water out of a fire hydrant right now with everything I need to learn and get caught up on, but it’s been going really well. And I like the people I work with.

    "I’ll be the first one to remind you that an MPH or MHS or MS (or whatever) in public health is meaningless if the person holding it decides to be anti-science and a vitriolic antivaxxer." Another prime example: Dana Ullman. He is big on homeopathy. So, I must say: thank you for this important message. Also, good luck on your new job.

    Sounds like a wonderful utopia. Still, regardless, wherever it would be created, I'll always win the funny face making contest with the kids. I just happen to have a naturally funnier face. 😉

    Multiculturalism is bad? Then please define the one true American culture. Is it the culture of the South? The big city? The small Midwest town? Is it the culture of the White man? Europe itself is made up of many different cultures within cultures. Homogeneity in culture is a white supremacist’s dream. It doesn’t exist. You’re using white supremacist language, and that wraps it up for you commenting on here.

    “Does that preclude me from making the entirely relevant point that the migrant caravan doesn't need to come to the US?” Yes, yes it does. Because making the discussion about the politics of immigration derails the main gist of the post. And the main gist is not just about Kevin, it’s also about self-professed Christians behaving like animals.

    "I did state where they would go: other places in Central America. And even if I had not stated Central America, where do you think they would go?" I asked that question, you turned it back to me. Let me guess, you can't name the nations in Central America, as you obviously cannot name a safe one to seek asylum in. As for the reason to seek to immigrate to the US, the ancient and false "the streets are lined with gold", indicating plentiful jobs would be priority #1, as my paternal grandparents did. Or do you think this nation sucks so badly as to not be worthy of immigrants seeking admission, let alone asylum seekers, who you conveniently ignored, along with rule of law and that entire Constitution thingie.

    "I do find it odd that there are mythical, unnamed places that the asylum seekers can go. Odd, in that you entirely failed to name them." I did state where they would go: other places in Central America. And even if I had not stated Central America, where do you think they would go? Indonesia? If we were talking about Syrian refugees, would me not mentioning that most Syrian refugees ought to go to Jordan make Jordan a "mythical place"? Can you give me a reason why the migrant caravan must come to the US? I can give you a reason why they should not: multiculturalism. Multiculturalism is probably second only to outright war in terms of strife caused worldwide; you'd think we'd be interested in avoiding it unless necessary. According to the past thirty years of the European Union, "necessary" means "we badly need cheap labor because we're not reproducing". But the US doesn't badly need cheap labor, is reproducing, isn't the only place they can safely relocate, and doesn't match their culture and isn't the culturally, so why should we let them in?

    I acknowledged the point of your article, actually: Kevin Sorbos lacks empathy. Does that preclude me from making the entirely relevant point that the migrant caravan doesn't need to come to the US? The Examiner articled linked to the author's claims, so your amendment to my comment might as well say [Link to information that contradicts me removed].
