Refugees From Reality

Leave it to the GOP (and some uninformed Democrats) to make a frightening situation something to panic over. The Paris attacks were terrible. The threat of more terrorist attacks on Europe is very real. But if you want to stop terrorists from coming into the United States, tampering with the refugee system is exactly the wrong place to start. The United States has accepted about 70,00 refugees into this country since 2009.  And there's a lengthy process. One-third of them were from countries...

Ted Cruz – For Bringing Syrian Refugees to U.S Before he was Against it – Video

At a time when everything is recorded - sometimes in High Definition - you would think that people, especially those wishing to be president of the United States, would at least be more consistent in their positions.

Does This Mean War?

I'm being a bit of a coward by posing my title as a question, but I do firmly believe that the western world is headed towards a much larger, more coordinated and, ultimately, more deadly military conflict. If it sounds like war, smells like war, destroys like war, breeds intolerance like war, then it must be a war. And we're in one.
