NIMS!

I hope that this Mary Troyan doesn't mind my reblocking of her USA Today article-I just made the header more condensed/visually palatable.
This hadn't occurred to me-that Governors might tell the Federales concerning the
Syrian 'refugees':
"NOT IN MY STATE!"
President Obama might not care. One signature on one piece of paper could declare FEDERAL imminent domain (forgive, please-I've never met a pun so bad that I wouldn't use it.) superseding ALL governors powers.
I'm just guessing, but I doubt that even the Democrat run states are willing to take in Syrian refugees.
But again-what ANY governor likes or dislikes may not matter to President Obama.
He will get that second Peace Prize for doing his part to assuage the 'refugee crisis' if it costs the Democrats every ounce of political capital that they have left.
Even if it costs Democrats every major election for the next decade...he! will! not! be! denied!!!
Here's what I mean-let's say that Governor Cuomo of New York opens his state to the Syrian refugees and just one of them happens to 'go rogue-Islam style', killing a bunch of New Yorkers in a terrorist attack.
Next election...no more Governor Cuomo.
President Obama will probably be out of office before the consequences of his imperial actions have their full effect on this country. In legalese, this is called 'getting away with it.'
But he won't. God is just, and, unless President Obama actually becomes a born again Christian...he will stand before God to answer for his sins. Just like the rest of the unsaved world.
You might ask, "Doug-refugees! Where is your Mercy and Grace now?"
Defeat ISIS and dethrone Assad and those refugees can return to their much improved country. But for now...NIMS.

If I am ever given a humanitarian award, I will demand a recount.
My state has a Democrat Governor-I wonder how many refugees we will take in?

You do realize that the State Department's vetting process for refugees (any refugees, not just Syrians) is long and rigorous, involving biometrics and detailed international records checks and lasting 18 to 24 months? If I were a terrorist trying to infiltrate the US, I wouldn't waste my time. I'd use a forged passport or take over someone's identity or walk across the Canadian border (three times as long as the Mexican one and wide open to any halfway decent woodsman), or, if I were an EU citizen as the Paris attackers were, I'd simply hop a plane and tell US customs I was here to sightsee or visit family. (EU countries have a US visa waiver, meaning you don't need a visa to travel between them and the US.)

I realize fear is the mind-killer, but this one really is pretty ridiculous.

A quick Google tells me that California (you do live there, right?) is about one percent Muslim, which is roughly 370,000 people. I would think that would give you plenty to be scared of.

Are you aware that you have been lied to by your government? I don't even have to go check this one out-when was the last time you saw the Government able to do ANYTHING comprehensively? Aside from assessing tax penalties on those who do not have health insurance.
What happened to "Trust, but verify."? As for the terrorists-they have found our borders porous, as you state. Makes you kind of wish that you had not protested against strengthening our borders, eh, Lu?
"I would think that would give you plenty to be scared of."
Who's afraid, Lu? Certainly not me-I'm ready to go to Heaven today, if God called me up there. Nothing on earth scares me, period. "What, me worry?"

Lucia said...

If you're not afraid of terrorists, why do you not want refugees in your state? Mostly women and little children fleeing persecution? Wasn't there a thing or two about that in the Bible?

Our borders are porous, although not as porous as I thought: my knowledgeable friend Google informs me that a lot of the Canadian/US border is monitored electronically, especially in remote areas. (I do wonder how the electronic gizmos tell a person from a moose.) I've never protested or otherwise lifted a finger to oppose tightening border security. But how tight do you want it to be, and how do you propose to accomplish that? You do realize that the Canadian border is over 5000 miles long (the longest land border between any two countries)? That's a lot of barbed wire.

You're being lied to, Lu. Dig into it and you will find that most of the 'refugees' are NOT women and children but actually young men. They are coming from a Muslim culture, adherents of Islam are declaring death to America, and 'children' grow up. So yeah, I see a problem with importing populations of peoples from Islamic countries, especially when some of the mouthpieces for Islam are shouting, "We will invade the West by coming in with the refugees!" Not an exact quote, but that is the gist of what an ISIS spokesman said.
Of course I'm not scared/fearful of anyone. But I'm also not an idiot. I lock my doors, and take the usual precautions to keep safe. That is only sensible.
When I lived in Vegas I could and did go out walking late at night, but nowhere near the Strip. I also slept with an aluminum baseball bat under my bed, as I lived in an okay neighborhood but not a great one.

Got a source for that?

So, just curious, what do you propose to do about the roughly 6.5 million Muslims already here? That's about 120,000 per state, although some states, such as California, have a lot more Muslims than that. Are they all terrorists? Should we kick them all out? Donald Trump says we shouldn't let any more Muslims in from anywhere. Do you agree?
