You can bet it doesn't involve either Walmart or hostage taking.Now, excuse me, I need to get back to watching episodes of The Shield.
More cultural enrichment from our Somali refugee resettlement program. Mohammad Moghaddam, from Somalia takes hostages in a Texas Walmart. SWAT team kills him. http://heavy.com/news/2016/06/mohammad-sadegh-moghaddam-amarillo-texas-walmart-gunman-shooter-hostage-somalia-somalian-wife-leila-gachlou-photos/
Nice quote, but it has absolutely nothing to do with immigration policy. Are you actually arguing that this quote shows that Jefferson or any of the other Founding Fathers would be in favor of large scale muslim immigration to the U.S.?Jefferson understood the dangers of Islam. In fact, Islamic aggression led Jefferson to overcome his heavy misgivings about military interventions and led him to go to war with the muslim principalities on the Barbary coast.
The "supposed founding values" do not require us to be religiously neutral in our decisions regarding who we allow to immigrate to the United States.Do you actually believe that any of our Founding Fathers would have been advocates for large scale muslim immigration to the United States?Just because Islam is a world religion that a quarter of the world's population subscribes to doesn't mean that Islam is compatible with U.S. culture and values. In fact, past and recent...
The problem isn't just refugees. The problem is Islam.The Orlando shooter was born in the U.S.Many of the Minnesotan Somalis who joined ISIS were either born in the U.S. or were brought here as children.Many other muslim terrorists were either born in the U.S. or brought here as children.In Europe, there is a similar pattern. Some of the terrorists involved in the Paris and Brussels attacks were born in Europe.This is why the argument that refugees can be vetted properly...

23 and Me is very cool.I was adopted and knew nothing about my ancestry or health history. For $100, I found out a bunch of really interesting stuff about my background.
My guess is that this explains the judge's lenient sentence. He likely disagreed with the jury verdict, and the light sentence was his way of expressing this.
I think of ethnic cleansing as what happened in Bosnia or Rwanda. Basically one ethnic group killing off every person of the other ethnic group in that territory.If annexing territory from another entity and settling it is "ethnic cleansing," then pretty much every change in national boundaries involves ethnic cleansing.So, if you define annexing land and settling it with Jews as ethnic cleansing, then I guess I'm in favor of ethnic cleansing. (By that definition, the...
