The arabs see it….

Why can’t the rest of the world see the truth?

These wealthy Gulf nations argue that accepting large numbers of Syrian refugees is a serious threat to the safety of its citizens because terrorists could hide themselves among civilians.

Not to mention that these radical Wahabbis are the direct result of the funding and propaganda campaigns of the same wealthy gulf states…..

I DO think that these people need help….and I really do think that we, as a nation, should help. But not at the cost of our men and women in the military, and not at the cost of our security here in our nation’s borders.

Nowhere is there anything written that we have to allow unchecked migration to our country. No one (barrring US citizens), anywhere in the world, has a right to come here and reside in side our borders.

college presidents with balls

Or guts, or whatever description you want to use.

THis college president tells it like it is…..He tells the students the truth.

Not willing to appease the bunch of whiney brats that demand that they have “safe spaces” from “triggers” and that that they never hear words with which they disagree or or which make them feel uncomfortable.

An excerpt:

If you’re more interested in playing the “hater” card than you are in confessing your own hate; if you want to arrogantly lecture, rather than humbly learn; if you don’t want to feel guilt in your soul when you are guilty of sin; if you want to be enabled rather than confronted, there are many universities across the land (in Missouri and elsewhere) that will give you exactly what you want, but Oklahoma Wesleyan isn’t one of them.

So only some lives

are worth protesting when they are ended:

Here we have two black children:

Both live in Chicago.

One, Tyshawn Lee, a 9 year old boy, killed by a black man who was a rival gang member to his father. (which everyone in the community knew, just waited for the police to make an arrest….)

The other, 17 year old Laquan McDonald killed by a white police officer.

Now, Tyshawn (the 9 year old) was doing nothing, was killed because of who his father was. Shot 7 times. Executed for revenge against his daddy.

Laquan (the 17 year old) was high on PCP, vandalizing cars, and was carrying a knife in his hand when confronted by officers. refused to drop the knife, and was shot 16 times.

Protests for Laquan. Marches and vigils. ‘Cause white cop. (and excessive force, perhaps)

No protests for Tyshawn. Black man killed him, so he Don’t Matter

Odd that.

The only thing I can figure is that there are racist double standards in the black community. White police officers don’t get a pass, but black gang members do….

I hope

That you are celebrating Thanksgiving with people you care about, be that friends, or family or a combination of both. May you continue whatever traditions you have in the comfort of those you love.

Take the time to reflect, and give thanks for what you have. I have much to be thankful for, I hope you do as well.

Raise a glass to those who can’t be with friends and family because they are standing a post somewhere less comfortable than where you are.

I will.

Interesting

’twas pointed out to me that the (mostly not black and mostly well educated, not street people) reporters following the (mostly black and mostly not well educated)) protesters of Laquan McDonalds  (he wasn’t a choirboy, BTW) death a year ago are surprised by their civility and by their just plain good behavior and politeness…..Much in the way that they are surprised when a scary looking pit bulldog turns out to be a nice, cuddly pet.

Good doggie.

I think it is funny. Sad, but funny.

Except, of course, political donations

So the IRS wants the Social Security Numbers of anyone donating to a Not for Profit organization (501-C-)…….

Except, of course for Political action groups that could influence the elections……(Wonder why they exempted those??????)

This is, I feel, an invasion of privacy, as no one needs to know who I support. It could, in fact, be used as retribution against citizens who don’t toe the party line, or whose views are not deemed correct by the current administration.

Lois Lerner has already done it, on a small scale, How would you like to have your donation to any non approved cause used to trigger an IRS audit, or other scrutiny?

Contact your Senators, tell ’em to reign in the IRS. Or your contributions to worthwhile causes will, at some point, be used against you.
Plan on it.
