All in the Family featured the curmudgeonly Archie Bunker. Archie was television’s most famous grouch, blunt, blustering, straightforward and untouched by the PC crowd. He was the archetype of the conservative male. Michael desprately tried to reeducate him, but he persisted in his breviloquence.



Looking back at the last 40 years, we realize: ARCHIE WAS RIGHT!

Makes Sense

Before I explore this news story I want to inject my personal belief up front.  As far as immigration is concerned Donald Trump doesn't go far enough.  Does that me extreme?  Maybe.  Maybe it makes me a realist who loves his country and doesn't want it destroyed.

Which brings me to my news story:

Right wants door open for Christian Syrians
Conservatives are outraged over the small number of Christian Syrian refugees who have been allowed to enter the United States — even as some on the right float a ban on their Muslim counterparts.
The U.S. has allowed just 34 Christians to enter as refugees from Syria since the civil war broke out there more than four years ago, according to the State Department’s most recent available data.  
That accounts for just 2 percent of the roughly 2,100 Syrian refugees the U.S. has accepted — disproportionately smaller than the 10 percent of Syrians who are Christian.
I'm going to make some BIG assumptions.  First, that Syrian Christians don't hold any views that would be harmful to the United States.  After all they may.  Second, that there is some method of reliably determining who is a legitimate Syrian Christian and not a terrorist gaming the system.  After all its not like we are screening members of Hamas or ISIS.  Third, that there would be a net benefit for both the refugee and the United States by allowing these people to relocate to our country.  Forth, Syrian Christians want to come to the US.  They may not.

The war in Syria amounts to Muslims of various denominations killing other Muslims over points that are important to them.  The one thing the different groups agree on is that killing Jews, Christians and other non-believers, is the only thing better than killing each other. 

If the United States truly was a benevolent country interested only in alleviating suffering in Syria, we would let the non-Muslims come stay, while keeping the Muslim combatants out.  If the US was merely ignorant, but fair minded we would accept a proportionate number from the population but keep them strictly separate here in the US.

What we have done is bring in large numbers of people who hate and kill each other in their own country to our country.  To help them settle in, we put them on welfare.  Then we get them on the path to voting Democrat.  Since they now have civil rights, and some extra cash; the next logical thing is for them to buy some guns.  After all, they've proved they know how to use them.

Someone has an agenda, and is pushing it, hard.

  1. I've been away for awhile, hunting in the hills. We usually go thanksgiving but this year there was a problem. So I'm just stopping by to say good luck on the job interview and merry Christmas.

    Bottom line is, there is no reason to bring ANY of them here. As noted in the article:

    Lebanon, which has a formal power-sharing relationship between Muslims and Christians, has been more eager to take in the Christians, Guterres added.

    “Don’t resettle Christians, because we want them in Lebanon!” former Lebanese President Michel Suleiman told Guterres during their first meeting together, according to Guterres.


    Settle the Christian Syrians in Lebanon, and the Muslim Syrians in Jordan or Saudi Arabia or Iraq or whatever other Muslim country is most compatible with each one's particular sect of Islam.

    1. I agree. We need to close the boarders to nearly everyone. Maybe we make an exception to anyone from historically common wealth nations that speaks English as their first language.

    Yes, and that 'someone' is working hard to get his family members settled comfortably in this country.
