    POTUS doing work

    another example of common sense policies that make America safer

    especially considering that London has caught up with NYC for violent crime for the 1st time in modern history...

    quote:
    During the campaign, Trump referred to Muslim refugees as a “Trojan horse” that could bring down the United States from the inside. Not surprisingly then, Muslim refugees have seen their numbers slashed most dramatically. From October 2015 through December 2016 (“FY 2016”), monthly arrivals of Muslim refugees averaged 3,076 (Figure 1). From January 2017 through October 2017 (“FY 2017”), they fell to 951 per month. During the first six months of FY 2018, they have fallen to just 275 per month-91 percent below their rate in FY 2016. Sunni Muslims have seen their numbers cut by 98 percent and Shi’ite Muslims by 86 percent.

    If you're suggesting a causal link, then you're also suggesting Rump was bullshitting when he took an oath to preserve protect and defend the Constitution, the First Amendment of which bars religious discrimination.

    Not that that should be news to anybody.

    I don't know that that's the case but the OP says they are. That's why I made my point contingent on his. If he wants to prove it, I'm Ross Perot.


    OK two questions.

    (1) What the hell are you talking about, and

    (2) Does your keyboard not have a "shift" key?

    1.
    When obama was controlling the refugee bullshit. I remember a stat getting posted where it was like thousands of muslims and 30 christians or something like that. They were, just like you, screaming about religious persecution.
    Thats despite the fact i believe they can do whatever in the hell they want allowing refugees. They are foreigners from a foreign land.
    2. shove your grammar naziism up your pooper :D

    2. It ain't "grammar"; it's orthography. Gitchew some. And btw Naziism should also be capitalized as it's based on a pooper noun. Uh, I mean proper.
    Englishing is a lost art.

    1. Too bad you can't be more specific than "something like that". And it's the OP screaming (I'd call it "crowing") about religious persecution. But we're waiting on him to prove that, aren't we.
