IOW - as long as its good for me, fuck everyone else.
Tell me, was this the long term plan during the heyday of this site? Tell everyone (who by definition cannot get under-market) to continue to rent, watch their rent explode and then laugh at them because your rent doesnt rise?
You say that, but you can not and will not take the time to credibly refute a single one. Hell, you didn't even take the time to read them. Are you trying to be a moron ?
You make incorrect assumptions and you call names, but I will indulge your rudeness anyway.
Here you go
1. Fact Refugees are subject to Department of Homeland Security background checks before arriving in the U.S.
Fact- The FBI and CIA have admitted that the screening process will not pick up any one who has not yet be caught/convicted of any illegal act
Fact - the boston bombers got through.
2. Fact Refugees are processed in conjunction with nine nonprofits, not solely by the government.
Fact- the government has a hefty bill for the resettlement program whether assisted by non profits or not
3. Fact Refugees are sent all over the U.S.
Fact: people live all over the United States- what is the relevance of fact #3?
4. Fact Refugees must pay back the cost of their flight to the U.S.
Fact: they don't have to pay BEFORE they get on the plane
Fact; Many honest well meaning people cant pay their debts. What happens if they can't pay is there a FACT that they get deported if they can't don't pay.
Fact; there are always dishonest people who never intend to pay their debts. Who pays if the honest and dishonest cant/wont pay?
5. Fact Refugees don't get long-term subsidized housing.
Fact After three months they are on their own. What if they can't afford their own non subsidized places? Where do they live? Can we expect that women and children with no skills and no English speaking abilities to do better than millennials with college degrees still living at home. If they don't whose basements do they get to live in?
6.Fact Refugees have to apply for jobs.
Fact: some won't apply, many won't get the jobs they apply for and many won't know HOW to apply. Fact #6 is meaningless
7. Fact The government doesn't track refugees after they arrive.
Fact- while 7 may be true, why would refugees not be tracked when everyone else is!
8. Fact Christian resettlement organizations help refugees of all faiths.
Fact- Christian charity has a long tradition.
I don't get the point of the article other than to try and drum up support for a program that 2/3 of the people don't want for reasons ranging from
-problems with our own ppl and their social welfare
-lack of trust in the screening and resettlement competence of the US govt
The 8 "facts" do nothing to address any of the concerns
Killing a few hundred people is sad, but it's nothing.
I suggest marcus/"humanity" and "YesYNot" should be the first victims, though alas it will probably be others and marcus/"humanity" will continue his Ignorant and hateful blather. And yes, marcus/"humanity" is the hateful one, as shown by his willful Ignorance and trollishness. At the risk of sounding like Sarah Palin, marcus/"humanity" really does hate America: aside from calling everybody racist and refusing to get the flu vaccine even when schoolchildren were dying of H1N1, he now invites lethal attacks upon America.
Unfortunately, nothing seems to dissuade these would-be martyrs from their path, on either side. They simply double down. YesYNot said that hundreds killed are "nothing," just like Jihadi John; nothing matters to them except their own quest.
They should sue. Like Disney doesn't make enough money, it has to outsource tech jobs and force IT workers to train their Chindian replacements. I hope they win a billion dollars and the case sets a precedent that keeps the wealthy owner assholes from misusing this program again. And I hope Congress acts to repeal it. There is almost no legitimate reason why you'd need to hire a guy from another country to replace a guy here.
The more the democrats show up (BLM, occupy universities, encourage unchecked Muslim immigration) the more Trump seems like the only option to those of us who aren't complete fuckwits. Even Bernie, as much as I respect the guy for sticking to his ideals, fell down hard on the Syrian immigration thing. If he'd taken even as moderate a road as the Canadian PM and offered the women and families but no single dudes a refuge, he'd be golden. But instead he wants all no checks, no worries that some of the majority single men are going to be bad for America.
Trump with all his xenophobia has it sewn up. People with families who vote don't want their kids threatened by foreign terrorist assholes.
Or is there some other goal to importing large numbers of Muslims?
It's an export/import business. The middle east has more Muslims than it needs, so the Saudis want to export them to Europe and America. The American and European politicians are funded by the military industrial complex, and the security contractors, and (especially in the case of the Bush family but also in the case of the Clinton Foundation) the Saudis, so the choices are (D) import Muslims here so it becomes necessary to spy on everyone to find the terrorists or (R) send ground troops over there, to support the booming procurement budgets. Of course, in the spirit of bipartisanship, both will happen, as happened in Iraq.
Gary is off duty today, due to the holiday, so please allow me to fill in and explain. More than a thousand years ago, according to Gary, some ruthless Zionists conspired to set their neighbors against each other. The Zionists called their plan Islam, wrote a book they called the Koran, and hired a violent sociopath named Mohamed (which was an unusual name, at the time) to spread it. The idea was to trick the neighbors to the point where they inbreed selectively for violence and end up cutting off each other's heads and killing their own children for "honor". As you can see, it worked. Now, nearly all Arabs and Egyptians are required to pound their own heads against the ground five times a day, on threat of execution. (According to Gary, the Zionists invented that little ritual as revenge for what Pharaoh did to Jews prior to Moses.) While most other peoples in the world, both religious and non-religious, have advanced, the descendants of Pharaoh and the lost city of Babylon have actually regressed. It's all been a huge conspiracy. The only question is, how to get the Muslims to realize that Islam is actually a Zionist conspiracy against them?
