What Do House Republicans Know That the President of France Does Not?

France Paris Attacks

French President Francois Hollande 

Last Friday night, hundreds of innocent French citizens (and some tourists) were gunned down by murderers. Today, the Republican US House of Representatives said that our 2 year vetting process for admitting refugees wasn’t thorough enough and needed more attention. Today, the President of France said his country will still take in 30,000 refugees this year in spite of what happened Friday night describing it as their “humanitarian duty.” Are Republicans smarter, more sophisticated, more knowledgable about issues of security than the President of France? Or are they just a bunch of ignorant misogynist, Islamophobic, xenophobic, anti-Science bigoted assholes who hide behind guns and Jesus Christ?


The One Country You’d Expect to Reject Syrian Refugees Wants to Take 30,000 of Them Instead

A growing number of politicians in the United States have used last Friday’s terrorist attacks in France to argue for tighter restrictions, if not an outright halt, on accepting Syrian refugees. But in France itself, the government is keeping its doors open.

French President Francois Hollande said on Wednesday at a meeting of French mayors that France will accept 30,000 refugees over the next two years, calling it his country’s “humanitarian duty.” The announcement earned a standing ovationfrom the mayors, according to the Washington Post.

France had already committed to take in just over 24,000 refugees under the terms of a mandatory EU quota plan that was adopted in September. Extending that commitment to 30,000 is one of the few positive signs for the EU’s efforts, largely led by Germany, to spread refugees more equitably across the continent. The plan was opposed by Eastern European and Balkan countries through which large numbers of refugees have crossed in recent months, and opposition has increased following the Paris attacks. The government of Hungary announced on Wednesday that it will sue the EU to overturn the quota plan. “Most of Europe’s population doesn’t agree with the quota. Its social legitimacy is lacking,” said Laszlo Trocsanyi, the Hungarian justice minister.

Are the Words on the Statue of Liberty Just B.S.?

When Americans say “no” to admitting desperate, hungry and homeless refugees is it really out of fear of terrorism?  Or is it just convenient excuse to express xenophobic intolerance?

Are those compassionate, welcoming words on that amazing lady in New York harbor who welcomed millions to this country just a clever bit of arrogant packaging for a false American image?

“Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed, to me:
I lift my lamp beside the golden door.”


Trump’s Tweet About Events in Paris is Sad But Not Surprising

If you believe that this Tweet makes sense, sharp objects should be removed from your home immediately and the millions of bullets you’re saving for that imminent government attack on real Americans should be turned over to a mature responsible adult (other than your submissive, good Christian spouse). 

I think this is an appropriate description of Republican candidate for President, Donald Trump and we dare say, many if not most of his supporters.

A sociopath can be defined as a person who has Antisocial Personality Disorder. This disorder is characterized by a disregard for the feelings of others, a lack of remorse or shame, manipulative behavior, unchecked egocentricity, and the ability to lie in order to achieve one’s goals. Sociopaths can be dangerous at worst or simply very difficult to deal with.
