Refugee Crisis


Right now in the current news cycle there is much discussion of whether or not to take in a whole lot of Syrian refugees that are supposedly fleeing ISIS. Most of the Democratic politicians in the news these days are for accepting them. In fact, Hillary Clinton suggested she would take in 65,000 versus the 10,000 that the Obama administration wants. Ted Cruz suggests we might want to allow the “Christian refugees” access to our land. Such lunacy needs to be addressed by our Congress and the American people in general if we are to preserve our way of life and protect our citizenry.

I’m all for helping our brothers and sisters in their time of need—if it is legitimate. We have no way of “vetting” all of these people as Hillary suggests we do. To be honest, I believe she knows that and maybe couldn’t care less about what happens to them. This could all be pandering to her base, as she is certainly known to do. After all, she is a classic politician.

Why not help them relocate to a safe haven in their part of the world? Why must we always be the ones to manage such things? Where is Saudi Arabia in all of this? How many of their fellow Muslims are they accepting? My understanding is none. Please correct me if I am wrong.

It is time that we wake up and take back our country. The way to do that is at the voting booth n this next election. If we don’t act soon, we may eventually even lose that most basic right.

My Lord wants us to be “our brother’s keeper,” for sure. But I don’t think he expects us to commit suicide in the process.

Ann Coulter, a conservative columnist and well-known speaker, asserts that Donald Trump won the election when the Paris attack happened. I’m not sure of that one—and I’m not sure it is best for America. However, it is preferable to extending Obama’s policies another 4 years by electing Hillary Clinton. We need to be rid of these establishment Democrats, as well as the GOP establishment. We need to take our country back. Please… make sure you vote in the next election.

Remembering Why

I was watching Bill O'Reilly this evening as he interviewed Tony Orlando, who has agreed to perform at the Armed Services Ball. Not only is he doing it for the veterans, he is doing it for America -- out of respect for our tradition of a peaceful transfer of power. He made it clear that, had Hillary won and asked him to perform, he would do the same. It is not a partisan thing. It's about America, not an individual. Bravo, Tony. A true patriotic American.

Think, not react...

The 'action-reaction' scenario that has been playing out between progressives and conservatives is a situation that is becoming increasingly counter-productive and harmful. This is obviously not something new; the battle between left and right has been raging for a long time and those flames were also well-fanned by the previous administration and ineffective congress. Sadly, what happens is a loss of focus on issues that we should be working together to solve and increase in counter-productive squabbling. The level of immaturity being witnessed as coming from our 45th president is unfortunate. Less use of Twitter would serve him better, provided he actually took the time to build better relationships with key figures in the media. Some of it has been nothing short of childish and the sort of thing I might have engaged in as a 12 year old, were Twitter in existence then.

President Trump's tendency to engage in knee-jerk reactions is unfortunate. A case in point is his exec…

Just a bit of DISGUST...

I've got to admit I expected more from the do-nothing body we call Congress with its GOP majority at present. Instead, we got more of the same old tired rhetoric we have been getting for the past 7+ years now about how terrible Obamacare is.

The plan they managed to produce after all this time (Paul Ryan's) is not much better than what is in place and apparently leaves a lot of middle-class people financially screwed. I understand it polled with a 17% approval rate. All I know is the many votes over the past few years to repeal it were nothing more than political grandstanding --  a waste of time and taxpayer money. All the Republicans seem to be able to do is criticize and come up with little to offer themselves. They cannot even seem to reach a consensus among themselves (a problem they have had as long as I can remember).

Personally, I have felt for a long time that they should simply fix what is in place so it works better and offers more flexibility with lower costs. I th…
