Quote# 43165

Savage also stated: "[W]hy was there an asthma epidemic amongst minority children? Because I'll tell you why: The children got extra welfare if they were disabled, and they got extra help in school. It was a money racket. Everyone went in and was told [fake cough], 'When the nurse looks at you, you go [fake cough], "I don't know, the dust got me." ' See, everyone had asthma from the minority community."

And nothing to do with air quality?

The main subject of the article is just as bad. 99% of autistic children are brats who were never told to cut the act out? Fuck you.

Fuck you. That's all I have to say.

Oh, shut up, you ignorant, ranting nutjob. You have no idea what you're talking about. Many minority kids are lucky to even receive the type of health care that you probably get. Shut the heck up.

As an asthmatic, I would just like to say: Fuck you up the ass with a rusty screwdriver, you retarded piece of shit

As an asthma sufferer, fuck off and die, it isn't a little fake cough. Let me sit on your chest so that you can't breathe. That's what asthma is.

It's probably higher in minorities because of inner city air quality and dietary quality.

Also minorities tend to live in substandard housing.

Hehe, Asthma is detected by a fake cough. Its so easy to fool doctors... Cause we check asthma by inducing an attack then taking lung volume tests. Not just a cough.

As for autism... Its a terrible behavioural disorder which is ridiculously hard to care for. Yelling at them HAS NO EFFECT. You cannot scare someone who has no idea of consequences. Complaining about sissification is bullshit considering you are a goddamn radio jockey.

You know Mr. Savage, what is more manly than your job? Mine, as a biologists I have had to take samples from bats by rapelling down cliffs to caves and setting up traps then waiting while suspended next to a friend for them to wake up and grabbing a bunch and tagging them.

I also as a med student have held a dude's brains in my hand. So until you have pulled a man's heart out with your BARE HANDS, do not ever use the concept of "manly". M'kay?

Yeah, because kids with respiratory problems got extra help in school.

My ass.

Wow! What an asshole! I'm Puerto Rican, I have asthma, and my parents never ever collected a penny of welfare. To imply that asthma cases amongst minorities is just one big conspiracy to get money from the government is fucking despicable.

Of course, poverty has nothing to do with that, doesn't it?

I have asthma. I'm a middle-aged white guy, and you're still a whiny little Wiener, Mikey-boy.

My dad listens to this guy... :(
