Brian Kotowski 1 year, 2 months ago on Cal Thomas: No Trump!

Trump is a standard-issue smoke filled room wheeler dealer; an establishment big government whore who's been in bed with the worst of the parasites for decades. He's given money to Hillary, Pelosi, Reid, Schumer, Rangel, Weiner (I'm betting he compared Johnsons with ol' Carlos), McCain, McConnell, Rahm Emmanuel, the Democratic Congressional & Senatorial Campaign Committees... He's reversed himself - not on just a couple of isolated issues - but on every major position. From taxes to abortion to gun control to Obamacare to immigration. He's the ultimate wet finger in the wind political hack whose only criterion for saying anything is whether or not it'll get some ink and fuel his narcissism. I'm mystified that anyone believes a syllable that comes out of his mouth.

And then there's the whiny bitch routine he defaults to whenever he's questioned or challenged. Anyone who presumes is fat, stupid, a loser, ugly, bleeding from her whatever... he's an adolescent bully. A malignant punk who belongs in the back seat of Ted Kennedy's Buick. So let's give him the nuclear launch codes!

If that d0@$ebag is the nominee, I'll be voting Libertarian.

Extremists have targeted refugee program to enter US, Homeland Security chairman says "Intelligence officials have determined that Islamic extremists have explored using the refugee program to enter the United States, they told the head of the Homeland Security Committee...

...“The refugee system, like all immigration programs, is vulnerable to exploitation from extremist groups seeking to send operatives to the West,” the agency added, noting that a small number of Iraqi refugees were arrested on terror charges in 2010."

In 2010, Preezy paused Iraqi immigration for 6 months. When he did it, it was enlightened. Any suggestion that we apply the same caution today re: the Syrians is Racist! Bigoted! Xenophobic! Not Who We Are!

After declaring ISIS "contained" before the Paris massacre, and assuring us a day before San Bernadino that we were safe from a Paris-style attack, Preezy just keeps on keeping on with his delusional, PC pap.

David: I clearly misinterpreted your post. My apologies.

I got the MMD interpretation from the essay you linked to, wherein the author explicitly states: “Many people think it (Make My Day legislation) gives a virtual license to kill to people on their own property.”

It baffles me that there might be people stupid enough to believe that; I'm glad you're not one of them.

In my defense, It is not unreasonable to assume that someone who cites an "authority" who asserts such a level of ignorance on behalf of gun owners might share that "authority's" indictment of said ignorance.

Again, my apologies if I painted with too broad a brush.

David Moore:

The article you linked to does nothing to bolster your call for gun control. It also includes this silly canard: “Many people think it (Make My Day legislation) gives a virtual license to kill to people on their own property.”

As a pro-2A gun owner who associates with other pro-2A gun owners, I don’t know anyone who believes that.

You’re quite right that Make My Day was not designed for public confrontations outside the home, but that’s like saying leash laws aren’t intended to curb smoking. One has nothing to do with the other.

As far as restrictions on concealed carry, the Supreme Court does not agree with you, and has consistently moved further away from the restrictions you would like to see imposed.

For anyone who has, or is considering getting a concealed carry permit, I strongly recommend reading The Law of Self Defense: The Indispensable Guide to the Armed Citizen by Andrew Branca. Professor Branca is an internationally recognized authority on American self-defense law. He meticulously collates and explains the relevant legislation, case law, and judicial rulings, and illustrates how ignorance of those statutes can and will get you into more trouble than the assailant you just shot.

It should be required reading for anyone who carries. If it doesn’t make you think twice, thrice, and many times more before you deploy your weapon, then you’re about as smart as BB boy in the article above.

You continue to make my point while undermining your own. We knew everything there was to know about Einstien, Von Braun, & Kissenger. We know nothing about the Syrians. Tens of thousands of immigrants were turned away at Ellis Island when they failed to measure up to the screening protocols. We have no meaningful way of vetting citizens of a failed state that doesn't even have a current phone book; forget about infrastructures that might support databases we could look into.

Your “Murica is great and everything outside is bad” smear is marginally amusing, since you're using it to ascribe convictions to me that I've never held or expressed. I believe the Christians among us would refer to that as bearing false witness. Heathens like me just write you off as the posturing liar you are.

“Nutjobs”. Got it. Evidently you're a shrink. Or perhaps you play one on tv. Oh wait – you've reviewed the psych evaluations of all those Muslim criminals! What an empty assertion to make, with absolutely nothing to back it up. You could just as reliably announce that Southern lynchings were perpetrated by whackjobs, and a virulent ideology never factored into their motives. Your citations of the IRA & PLO support my position, not yours. That we looked harder at Irish passports than say, Portuguese passports was never a case of 'Irish need not apply.'

The xenophobe allegation is an especially limp red herring. Xenophobes wouldn't look twice at “US military servicemen, Cubans, Yemeni, Yugoslavians, Chicks from Denver, A dude born in Cincinnati, and Germans.” Their ideology is the common red flag, and like it or not, where they come from is a component in that calculus.

If anything proves my point about the Syrians, it's your stunning refusal to acknowledge the common thread connecting those arrested. And now you and Preezy can't wait import another 85,000 from a part of the world where clear – and often vast – majorities believe that Sharia law is the way to go, and who have spent their lives even more proximate to a barbaric ideology; where behaviors we consider depraved are accepted as the norm.

John Allen Muhammed, Lee Boyd Malvo, Mohammed Ali Alayed, Dr. Osama Ahmed Ibrahim, Ismail Peltek, Michael Julius Ford, Naveed Afzal Haq, Mujtaba Rabbani Jabbar, Yaser Abdel, Chaudhry Rashid, Muzzammil Hassan, Abdulhakim Mujahid Muhammad, Ali Muhammad Brown, Dr. Nidal Hasan, Faleh Hassan, Abdulsalam S. al-Zahrani, James A. Larry, Rahim A. Alfetlawi, Yusuf Ibrahim, Reshad Riddle, Daymond Agnew, James Cosby, Alton Nolen, Muhammad Youssef Abdulazeez...

Google any or all of those names. In addition to perpetrating horrendous atrocities on American soil, they all share another common trait. Care to guess what it is? Hint: it's the same motivation that resulted in those 60+ arrests.

Or, as expressed by the lawyer in Nebraska representing the two Iraqi men on trial for child rape, American perspectives on women and children "put us in the minority position in the world."

We can't screen or vet the Syrians. You are evidently eager to roll those dice. Me, not so much.
