Comment Re:Illegals are illegal (Score 1) 296

Does it apply only to immigrants, or is anybody who breaks the law an "illegal"?

How specious of you. Burglars, etc, are indeed "illegal" and if caught are punished by law. It's only being asked that those breaking the immigration law be punished as well.

We have an economy that cannot function without more immigrant labor than our immigration laws allow.

Your logic is ok, your math is bad. Sixty wpm is more like 60*7 (word average) = 420 chars per *minute*. I've never heard of anyone who can type sixty characters per second.

But what your writing about is transcription, not writing what you're thinking as you go. Typing is actually pretty bad for that as your speech doesn't form grammatically correct (just witness all the bad sentences spoken aloud by anyone not reading notes - and even those that are).

Yes, I can type faster than I can talk normally, but only don't give a shit how the text looks or reads afterward and if I don't try to rush my speech.

Writing takes much more time but it also is far more precise.

â" even kill neurons â"

No. Neurons form and die off all the time. No one can tie anything other than a direct physical injury to a specific neuron's death.

Thatâ(TM)s why itâ(TM)s reasonable, scientifically speaking, not to allow a provocateur and hatemonger like Milo Yiannopoulos to speak at your school.

And there we have the political underpinning for the false statement.
