Refugees

Does anyone in America on yahooka give a shit about taking in refugees?

Private organizations bring them in and sponsor.

It's not the flood like Europe gets (stay strong Poland)

Terrorists gonna get here one way or another.

Bout sums up my view. Facebook has been on fire over the past few weeks with people rallying around vets and Detroit like we suddenly care. And as if this is all being paid for with tax money.

I think we should do it. If tax money is a problem, they can cancel a couple of multi-billion dollar fighter plane contracts. I'm sick of hearing how we can't afford it when the government is asked to do something to help others, but never when it's time for another war. It's getting as though the only humanitarian thing we can do, anymore, is give aid to the rich.

Yeah but dude its private charities putting up almost all the money. From what I've seen. The only tax money involvement is the screenings and yeah I'm with you on that level. These govt fucks screen us 24/7 and probably most other people in the world.

So when all these refugees are denied.. Is that not what Isis wants. So they start recruitment?

If I was a refugee and the world turned its back on me I'd be pissed too.

It sucks but it's probably a good strategy for the bad guys?

Those fighter plane contracts are partly responsible for the refugee situation. Partly could mean 90%.

I care, as in, I don't care if they come in.
I trust the US and Canadian screening process.

Personally, I've known half a dozen refugees from the Middle East,
and attacking a place that gave them refuge is the last thing on their minds.

In Canada, the dude that rode shot gun with me, when I drove a recycling truck,
was from Iraq. We always thought it was pretty cool.


What DOES concern me is all the harsh rhetoric that has been getting coverage.
I'll put it that way, as I haven't seen much person to person utterances.

A 'Tracking Process or National Registry'..... All I can say is Wow, and Whoa!

Why don't we just pin little Crescent Moons on their jackets?
Cause you know.... best to use a method that is tried and true.


Duhfuq, 'Mericuh?

I looked into sponsoring a small family. I got the room, but it isn't done that way, I guess.

Something I've been thinking about...

The US and Canada are considered Christian Nations, but look at the amount of Atheists we have. I wonder how many of these refugees would also be Atheist, given the chance.

As far as I know trump didn't actually call for a registry of all muslims. He just said some trump shit and people took it and ran.

Its not that I dont care about them, but, no matter what we, "us", do, we will never be able to help the majority of the poor/starving/persecuted peoples, "them", of the world.

Us, the middle class, the ones who actually pay the bills, would be brought down to a much lower level of existance (however low, or high) than we enjoy now. I, for one have things not too awful bad, but, I worked hard for 40+ years for it and want to keep it.

I feel sorry for the refugees, I do not sympathise with them.

Seriously tho, I think ALL refugees should be considered as temporary, to return from whence they came when things improve there, period.

Those, 'them', who go through the proper channels & come here are immigrants who eventually become those of 'us', <- integrating into our society, not demanding 'us' to change to appease 'them'.

Mostly, they come from a desert climate, they can live in Arizona/New Mexico/etc. the climate suits them. "Temporarily".

We already have enough trouble here without importing more of it.

"Lifes a bitch, and then you die". Sorry

OK..... send me two, cause I voted both times!



If 'we' keep them, does that mean you'll let them in?

He doesn't speak very decisively, I'll say that.
He leaves things vague enough that he can leap forward or backpedal as needed.

All but two of the refugees I know are 'military aged males',
and they are great guys, who love their respective new home countries. (Canada and the USA)


If I had the space, I'd look into it.
However I have one bedroom, and that wouldn't do.

Islamophobia, rejecting refugees from a war zone over us vs. them type fears is the exact intention behind the terrorist attacks. Being unwelcoming to syrian refugees and hateful of muslims means the terrorists win.

Congratulations Kishar, on your support for ISIS.

Also, refugees usually make good citizens, they have no where to go but up and theyre thankful for it.
