Actually we are on the right side of history. Rome was pillaged by barbarians the Romans admitted to the city. The fall of great empires are full of this treachery. We must screen these refugees and we do not have the capacity to do so. This from the very people who do the vetting.
Had Obama actually understood the situation in the Middle East and planned correctly we might not have had so many refugees. We don't want them. Let the Saudis take them.

I realize that you saw a picture on your facebook feed that has lead you to believe that they are all fighting aged males. But they aren’t. You people are so easily scared and manipulated by those in power it is pathetic. Talk about useful idiots- you are being manipulated by out and out lies into abandoning the very things that make America great. Shame on you. Cowards.
"You people are so easily scared and manipulated by those in power it is pathetic." In case you didn't realize it, but those in power are the one's preaching that they're innocent victims. A picture on facebook. Have you ever read any news, listened to their shortwave broadcasts, it what they're saying across the pond. Have any relatives over there, talk with anyone over there? It's what they are saying. I had a nice conversation with some people from Holland, Finland, and Germany, who told me exactly what was happening over there. As a matter of fact, a few refugees joined our conversation. I copy/pasted one of their reply's here http://www.theblaze.com/stories/2015/11/17/obama-mocks-gop-critics-over-syrian-refugees-with-scathing-remarks-doesnt-seem-so-tough-to-me/
I'm sorry, but you are the one getting manipulated by out and out lies. You need to do a little more homework and stop believing what so see on tv, and on facebook. Most importantly, stop believing anything that comes from a U.S. media outlet. There is an election coming up, and both sides are lying like crazy to get their candidate elected.

well, at least you aren’t completely obsessed with race. What’s it like to live every waking moment of your sad life in fear?
[-1] November 17, 2015 at 11:27am
literally everything he says here is factually incorrect. From that you can draw 2 conclusions:
1)he really is as stupid as he sounds
2) he is purposefully misleading you- why would he do that? Why would he use fear to manipulate you?
By the way, this sort of reaction is precisely what ISIS wants.
You are confusing-confused, your conclusions are flawed
It has to be cheaper to keep them there, no vetting process, no transportation cost, all in one place not scattered, less fear from terrorism by migrants.
How is his statement misleading? How is this manipulating us? ISIS wants into the US and EU why would they want to be in Syria?
Stupid is what got him advanced in life.
Nice to be that stupid.
How about that HUD supplied how many folks housing
Lest I forget I thought it was ISIS that caused fear.
He really knows how to pander to idiots doesn't he?
Your comment makes no sense. He is not quoting any facts. He is making a statement, which anyone with some common sense and half a brain would quickly agree with. Even before what happened in Paris. And by way of poof, I would refer you to the lemmings comment posted by Jackie dum bass. He continues to prove his stupidity with his inane posts.
patstu : No. ISIS wants to kill you and to destroy Western civilization.They especially hate that civilization thingy because it interferes with their psychotic hobbies.
Fear??? We have been pumped with fear since Bush and Co: blew up the WTC. Trump is not ginning up the fear that isn't already there. Fear??? is sitting in the Oval Office planning and plotting everyday how to dismantle a once happy prosperous independent minded creative people. My fear is he is doing an excellent job AS EVERYBODY IS TOO AFRAID TO MARCH INTO HIS OFFICE AND SLAP CUFFS ON HIM........for CRIMES he commits everyday against the nation/the people/ the future of this country. My fear is that I will never see the America I grew up in. BECAUSE NOBODY HAS THE RIGHTEOUS INDIGNATION AND COURAGE TO SLAP CUFFS ON the Fuhrer Barry or whatever his fake name is. Disgusting mack daddy groid pimp. IN the highest office!
God be with US.
Have another drink and think some more .
Look at it this way. I give you 10 grapes only 2 are poison. Will you eat 5? We bring in these "refugees" most may be good a few are bad. Do we trust them all?

however, when God says, “thou shalt not kill”, we don’t need to take that literally. Gotta love the American version of Christianity.
Most modern translations that leveraged 4th Century manuscripts and artifacts like the Dead Sea Scrolls read "You shall not MURDER."
I agree with termyt. Please, explain what you are thinking here.
It seems to me you are grouping a few examples of Christianity with the whole, which as we have learned, isn't really all that effective.
"Thou shalt not kill" is a commandment from God that I know I strive to live, and I venture that the vast majority of people, religious or not, strives to live by that creed. If we didn't, our society would fall apart. We don't go about seeking to kill everyone around us, or those who we disagree with, or cut us off on the freeway.
However, this commandment does not mean "leave yourself defenseless" either. Yes, we will hold on to our firearms to defend our people, our rights, our country, our family, and yes, our religion if needed. While God will miraculously save His people occasionally, more often He works through the small acts of men who follow Him. We pray that it does not come to that, and do not seek to or want to shed the blood of another, yet if it comes to it we will not shrink from it, even to the loss of our blood.
Yes, we will stand against organizations that are advocating the murder (there's that "thou shalt not kill" thing again) of innocents, regardless of race, sex, orientation, and age. This is why we fight things such as abortion.
These are just a couple of examples.
In short, please glennpatstu, explain where you are perceiving that American Christianity does not follow this commandment? Please provide me with MAJORITY examples, not one offers.
HarryPotter: The 11th Commandment: Thou shalt not cherry pick scripture.
"however, when God says, “thou shalt not kill”, we don’t need to take that literally. Gotta love the American version of Christianity."
Though it doesn't say anything like that at all. It says: "Thou MUST not commit murder". And it also specifies the punishment for doing so. Take a guess as to what it is?
And if you read on into the next chapter and book you find a number of place that God tells his people TO kill someone that has committed a sin.

OK. What if they bought some property, say, on the US/Mexican border? The xenophobe scape-goaters, er, I mean the Republican Party wants to take it to build a fence to keep make-believe Mexicans from taking our jobs, women, food stamps, etc- who do you side with then?
Trump and other fencers have done a good job of avoiding this reality so far, but this is what will need to happen. It’s why a fence is not only a dumb idea, it’s not realistic.
Now, do you blazers realize that Trump’s ‘plan’ to build a fence at the border would involve over 100 cases of eminent domain? That’s why it’s unrealistic, unamerican and only aimed at garnering support from the dumbest of the dumb americans.
Regardless, were the two in the classroom he shot up? How many students at this college even have a clue that they could legally defend themselves there? How many there haven't been brainwashed to the point of believing that guns, not people, are the the perpetrator?
Really, than please explain why an armed forces member went to his vehicle to collect his weapon and was stopped on his way back in by staff who then confiscated his weapon?
Totally IS a gun free zone.
Apparently you're stupid.
[-5] October 2, 2015 at 1:34pm
Yeah, not a gun-free zone actually. Shocker that you didn’t do your own resarch and just choose to parrot the NRA’s talking points which are misleading you purposely.
Laws aside... It’s gun free if no one is carrying them on their person.
Here's some research that proves you wrong.
BS You must have missed the idiot that runs that college saying the school will remain a killing field ie "gun free zone".

Perhaps you should practice what you preach and research more than headlines. "My Two Cents" replied below and above with a link proving your knowledge on the subject is very shallow.
From Umpqua Community College: “Possession, use, or threatened use of firearms (including but not limited to BB guns, air guns, water pistols, and paint guns) ammunition, explosives, dangerous chemicals, or any other objects as weapons on college property, except as expressly authorized by law or college regulations, is prohibited."
"Possession of knives with a blade longer than 4” is prohibited."
"Brandishing weapons is prohibited."
"Misuse of personal defensive weapons – e.g., pepper spray, etc. is prohibited. The owner is responsible and accountable for any misuse of these devices.”
[-10] October 2, 2015 at 1:33pm
Sorry to interject your circle jerk with facts, but UCC is not a gun-free zone. This is because by Oregon law, a public university can not ban weapons. In fact, there were 2 ex-military guys on the campus.
Please commence with your circle jerk, ignoring the actual laws and facts that surround the situation
You are distorting the truth and cherry picking facts.

Abortion is a legal medical procedure in the USA. Read the constitution, then kindly **** off.
The Constitution makes no mention of the word "abortion" nor any real provisions about medical procedures. It is only a legal precedent that has placed medical care decisions under the amendments guaranteeing rights to privacy. I actually agree with this decision. My medical care is none of the government's business and should stay that way.
However, this only removes the government's ability to regulate abortion for so long as the unborn child is not considered a person. Once the child is considered a person, the child's right to not be murdered trumps the mother's desire to not be inconvenienced for nine months, just as your right to not be murdered trumps my desire to not listen to idiots babble about things they aren't capable of rationally considering.
A child is a human from the moment of conception. It is therefore murder to abort a child. The mother's right to privacy should have no bearing upon this situation.
Your statement is irrelevant. No one is saying that abortion is not legal. You seem to be confusing the concept of legality with the concept of morality. We all know that abortion is legal, just as slavery was. There is no need to keep mentioning it.
But, abortion is IMMORAL, regardless of its legal status. Because it is immoral, it should also be illegal. Hence the debate. If you have rational thoughts on why it might NOT be immoral, please share them. (Key words: "rational thoughts".)
kindly eff off? That was necessary? Sure, abortion is a legal practice, I don't know if "medical" is really the correct word as it's not good for the mother and lethal for the baby. I'm always puzzled how somebody could actually be a cheerleader for abortion. It's almost as if abortion makes them happy or something. Even if I agree with a need for access to legal abortion as a means of preventing a dangerous black market I still know it's the worst possible thing any woman could do to herself and it's taking a valuable life out of this world simply because someone else deems it inconvenient. But I guess you're all for it since it doesn't personally affect you anyway, what a complete slob!
Typical liberal obfuscation! It's not in the constitution but since you have no real justification for this heinous act, you boldly claim it is in hopes of convincing the uninformed.
Just like saying it's the woman's body when in fact it's the helpless baby's body that is being cruelly mutilated.
For the 56437859834th time......
legal does not equal moral.
WHICH sentence says it is okay to slaughter babies before they are born ... PLEASE, give me a reference, so I can look that one up !!! the constitution was written by men who didn't know that babies could be physically aborted because their wives didn't want their children ... I need to be able to justify YOUR COMMENT on the constitution in order to understand what you wrote !! WHERE IN THE CONSTITUTION does it say to SLAUGHTER BABIES ?!?!? you poor damned fool, and I mean that from a Biblical standpoint !!! PLEASE ... just show me I am wrong with FACTS, then maybe I'll **** off !!! In the meantime, just go abort yourself, will you ????? you are taking fresh air away from people who deserve it !
abortion is not part of the constitution, and whether it is "legal" or not, it is still murder.
 October 1, 2015 at 4:22pm
Didn’t read the article and don’t need to- abortion is legal in this country per the supremee court. You don’t like it, tough ****- that’s how the constitution works. Tell your family and friends not to get an abortion. Talk about it, do what you gotta dod.But it is a legal medical procedure in this country and that’s not going to change.
Amazing. It is clear that abortion intentionally kills an innocent, unique, defenseless, individual human being. And your final argument in favor of it is "Seven men said we could do this"?
Yet you are also probably AGAINST the 2nd amendment and do everything you can to create obstacles to prevent people from exercising that right. Funny how when it's something you like you cite the constitution, but when it isn't you forget all about the constitution. Typical liberal mindset.
A lethal injection is a legal medical procedure. Want one? Brain surgery, amputation, castration, burn debridement, and a whole long list of things are legal medical procedures but, you can not get a real doctor to perform one on you at request for any reason you create in your head. Why? The Hippocratic Oath they take to ”do no harm.” And, let’s see, frontal lobotomies were considered good medicine and standard treatment for many mental diseases and THAT CHANGED! Maggots were used, then considered no longer valid and we are back using them because they are so much better at cleaning wounds. I can give more examples but I think you get the point. What is accepted medical practice and legal now changes so get off that sacred cow of abortion before it dies and rots into the annuals of history like so many other things. And most OB/GYN doctors will not perform abortions on moral grounds.
Abortion leaves scars. Many women have physical and mental scars. My 62 year old boyfriend with a daughter and exwife still accepts his wife’s decision to have one but still is not over it and is on the spectrum in the middle. He believes it’s wrong but feels he can’t judge women who have them. And he talks about it a lot. Many states allow late term abortion on babies into the 9th month. 19 week gestational babies survive and grow up. Are they people or not? Do they only deserve rights if the mother grants them? It’s close to slavery and Nazis saying blacks and Jews aren’t deserving of rights.

No. Sadly, the NRA has bought our government and tricked the idiotic masses into thinking that regulation = gonna take er gunz. Don’t worry, no common sense will ever interfere with your ‘freedom’. Country is ******.
So, please explain what gun control measure not already on the books would have prevented this.
those so called idiotic masses you speak of would gladly take out an active shooter threat to save your tail while your peeing your pants and crying about gun control!
Nope If I owned a gun and was to carry a gun it would be to protect me and my family. I would be concentrating on my families safety. glennpatstu would be on his own. Once my family was absolutely guaranteed safe then if there was an opportunity without any risk to myself or family and I could do it to save someone in imminent danger I might pull a trigger to save them. I don’t need the time in court and related legal hassles related to shooting someone. I am no hero. To protect my family yes, to protect glennpatstu, no. Everyone needs to be responsible for their own safety.
Define a "common sense" regulation that is not already on the books.
Golly, almost 5 hours later and your list of laws that would have stopped this shooting still stands at 0....how weird.

Where are the gun-free zone assumptions coming from? This article makes no mention of it being a gun free zone.
according to this article, http://www.ammoland.com/2015/10/shooting-at-gun-free-umpqua-community-college-oregon/#axzz3nLjiEMyb they're a weapons free zone. However there is some question as to if they allow licensed concealed carry. Can't confirm the source (school website) at this time, it's probably getting hammered with visitors right now.
In general though, schools are gun free zones. According to http://www.armedcampuses.org/ oregon shools allow concealed carry, however the school can limit who carries and where they carry.
A little further digging found: http://www.oregonlive.com/education/index.ssf/2012/03/oregon_state_board_of_higher_e_7.html
So, pretty much weapons are banned inside any building.

Clarifying the difference between a theory in the traditional sense and the scientific sense is not a belief- they actually mean two different things. That was the point of this lesson. Of course to know that, you would have to actually read something (including the article above) so I wouldn’t expect that Blaze nation will ever catch on to this. Continue being outraged at things because you don’t take the time to understand them.
Theory has only the traditional sense, as far as I know. But now, the scientific method has been cheapened by manipulation and opinion stated as fact, that in the realm where "science" and "faith" meet, the "science" is modified to achieve the politically expedient result. Faith meaning AGW, evolution, creationism, and I'm sure some study will soon be coming along blaming us for earthquakes, meaning no more drilling.
