• @squirrel, The Second Amendment was created to prevent tyrants from taking control of our country. How that ultimately plays out is yet to be seen…

  • This post is inspired by @Squirrel ‘s latest post. I want to put a face on refugees.

      • I know you are not as one-sided with this issue as you project here. I remember the private message you sent me about your true political beliefs. I honor your privacy, but I don’t think you are showing your true self here.

        Please watch these videos I posted here and then we can chat.

      • Do you even know the difference between an immigrant and a refugee?

        “Of the 3,252,493 refugees admitted (to the US) from 1975 to the end of 2015, 20 were terrorists, which amounted to 0.00062 percent of the total. In other words, one terrorist entered as a refugee for every 162,625 refugees who were not terrorists. Refugees were not very successful at killing Americans in terrorist attacks. Of the 20, only three were successful in their attacks, killing a total of three people.”

        You stand more of a chance of getting hit by lightening than being attacked by a refugee.

        And, your video you posted is just insulting. What does it have to do with people who have to escape their war torn countries? You have really lost your heart.

    • I am not sure, as I practically never socialize. Even here, I just distantly talk from an pseudo-anonymous account, and that largely on philosophical matters.

      But, I do live in a very heavy first generation American middle class area, so it is extremely likely some I know are refugees. My state has the highest percentage. Or one of the highest percentages.

      Most are from nations I know are likely to have refugees from, if not all, effectively. Though, usually they are not near the fire. For instance, many Vietnamese here. They invariably are second or first generation. They came over either after the fall of South Vietnam, or shortly thereafter. Likewise, many here are from Nigeria which is a deeply developed nation with very massive cities, but certainly does have some areas of extreme trouble. Which, speaking of, is exactly like Mexico. And I continue to the curse the damned war on drugs for that! Used to be we could visit Mexico. Long time ago. Half of my state, maybe a bit more, is from Mexico, though many are many more generations deep then first or second generation.

      Others are from more severe and unstable African countries, like Uganda. A clerk at the alcohol store is from Eritrea, which is first or top ten on journalist persecution.

      Very many from India, hard to say any of them are refugees, however, India remains largely stable. Relatively speaking. Also, have known many Pakistanis and from Bangledash, again, relatively stable.
