Interesting posts to read after what happened last night.
Thoughts and prayers to all those people touched by the attacks in France.
"From 1980-2008, the United States has accepted around 83,000 refugees a year. The Obama administration has said it will accept around 70,000 refugees in Fiscal Year 2015 and is saying it will accept 85,000 refugees in Fiscal Year 2016 and 100,000 in Fiscal Year 2017.
Over those three years, that’s about 6,000 refugees more than the recent annual average. Overall, Obama is asking the country to take in an additional 45,000 refugees in 2016 and 2017.
Most, but not all, of those additional refugees will come from Syria."
In light of recent events, it only makes sense that we have a serious vetting of any refugees we allow into our country.
CLARKIE- Nobody asked your dumbass opinion. Woman... be quite before I tell the people what kind of HUMAN TROLL you are in real life.
Your a joke nobody laughs at, and your not even Jewish so shut up. I'm who I am and your a jealous fraud that teaches people to hate so that they will like you. Sad but its your truth on what love is.
put down the pipe.
Don't get me wrong. I love my country (the USA) and I think Charlestons people are some of the best on the planet. However I was talking to the people in this chat room who are not compassionate towards these people who have lost everything.
Also just because you are Syrian does not make you MUSLIM. This is ignorance and it pisses me off. There are tons of religions in Syria, and people from all over the world used to visit it. This war has destroyed the people (children never going to school in a MODERN COUNTRY like the USA), it has destroyed the ancient monuments for humanity, and it has led to a growing mistrust of the USA.
Again don't try to turn my country the USA into a hateful XENOPHOBIC "conservative" nation as there are ALOT of people that think this crap in Syria is the UNITED STATES FAULT. ALL we need are more safety concerns after 9/11 right? "Think of the children!!" they scream, but the result is just more IDIOCY parroted from the people that taught you those MANTRAS to use after 9/11 so that you would do what they say. Bush said, "but keep shopping!! don't let the terrorists win!!". Wow what an amazing president that flaunted in our faces our nations own inadequacies and ignorance, AND THEN TURNED A PROFIT OFF OF IT!!! The American dream ladies and gents, and I remember most of you people took the bait and laughed about the latest southpark episodes like MORONS.
Enjoy your paychecks!! Judas killed jesus but he still got paid right? Just donate to an online facebook campaign of your favorite hate mongering senator. The pat yourselves on the back and call yourselves people
These people are ONLY refugees, because of our benevolent act of VENGEANCE performed after 9/11 in invading Iraq (thus giving ISIS weapons and recruitment power). The world will not stand for the atrocities committed by this corporate interest puppet government and you COWARD PIGs/UNEDUCATED idiots that are essentially its SLAVES. (They made this country a giant plantation with strip malls at every exit with the LAND SEIZURE ACT of WW2.) This COMMENT is dedicated to all that HUMAN GARBAGE talking shit about refugees fleeing our proxy war violence in Syria.
Why do the Lebanese alone have to deal with the growing human crisis caused by our own idiocy and war profiteering? Ive seen with my own eyes 5 year old children sleeping on sidewalks, and you pigs are scared about your children? You should be. Your politicians will eat you alive for a higher profit margin, and your corporate owners are not American either.. so they won't give a shit if your eating out of GARBAGE CANS in five years. Winner take all voting anyone? You people better just keep working for that paycheck that is worth less and less with each passing year, because your COWARDICE and LAZINESS with political activism is destroying the world.
Germany is the home of HITLER and expensive GAS guzzling vehicles you CLOWNS drive around in order to impress each other (even though the world looks at Charleston people that do it like WHITE TRASH) Get a FORD or CHEVY you un-american traitors, because you are whats wrong with the planet.
The tides are already turning and CHINA and RUSSIA are going to hang these corrupt politicians from the trees if they keep instigating war against them to control the populations here (to kill you off like deer). Better go solar while you still have the resources to get the materials needed cheaply (but you won't because you are selfish pigs that only think about immediate gratification).
Enjoy your debates you fat F***s even though it is all rigged in reality and DONALD TRUMP is going to win with certainty since he is a BILLIONAIRE MAFIA puppet that carries a card. These people own you from cradle to grave, and then move out of our country when they are done using it to move to England and live tax free (with billions in their pockets of our governments kickbacks)
My trip to find out the TRUTH about the arab spring.
That RAT senator has his days limited in the senate. All of these puppets need to pull the hands out of their asses before their nation is destroyed by international corporate interest.
My video about my trip to see Lebanon to get a taste of the arab spring myself.
Anybody who doesn't like the idea of a cat café can simply not go there.
There are plenty of cats I can visit with for free, though, so I'll probably pass due to the high prices.
I'm was sitting on my back steps earlier petting one of the local strays, didn't even have to feed it.
That's cute truthus. I see no reason to make my philanthropy public because in my mind that defeats the purpose. So you will never know what contributions I have made, or who I've taken in, and I am at peace with that, because I have nothing to prove.
But if you want to play that slippery slope logic game, I hope you are also encouraging everyone rattling their sabers for war after war after war to enlist in the military and go fight. I want you to be consistent. You would look ridiculous if you supported people who constantly advocated war from behind their podiums and keyboards with no intention of ever fighting.
The folks on Avenue F will end up with the trains running right next to their property, 50-100 feet away. But, this plan severely affects a dozen or so homes versus the Spruill Ave plan affecting a couple hundred homes.
They paid $225k for the 4300 sft space in 2010 and can walk with at least $575k to purchase a new facility. I would think that with that amount of money they could easily find something nearby where they wouldn't have to worry about the rail concerns.
I'm all for it, and look forward to relaxing fun play sessions. Cats are great therapy and mind refresh in the midst of a busy day.
Any business venture entails risk, and Charleston has a checkered past in regarding support of uber niche businesses ( See Motobar). Hopefully the playful angle will draw in a sustaining mass of folks. No doubt a large portion of college kids missing @ home pets, which will be nice for them.
Ron and Factory, some like clarkie, nofaith and CID95 will never get it. So by all means step forward and show them how it is done. Lead by example. Be the first in line to accept a refugee family in to your home and take care of them at your expense until they can make it on their own. Change your home to their culture and values. Walk the walk and show the others how it is done. Show them how JESUS would do it. Some just learn better by watching instead of hearing. Now that would be brilliance on your part.
"However, the men aged 17 - 50 should immediately be sent to training"
More brilliance from our resident small government anti-authoritarian guy. They are trying to escape war you dimwitted chucklehead. Why on earth should government funding go to putting them back into it?
The EU should accept unlimited Syrian refugees. However, the men aged 17 - 50 should immediately be sent to training to form an EU-led Free Syrian Army unit to save their country.
Once they have an EU type of government, then Syria can become the EU type of nation they are all fleeing to, and they can all go live their lives at home, not as refugees. Win / Win
I am sure that Germany would be a happier place right now without a portion of the refugees they so gleefully welcomed in.
Clarkie, speaking for the Berkeley County Council: "All refugees are Muslim terrorists, so not only should they not be allowed in South Carolina, they should be imprisoned in GITMO."
Hell, why not just machine gun them down as they line up at the borders in Europe, people? Remember not to lead the women and children as much when they're fleeing. And don't wimp out and say that only military-aged men are a problem. I've read stories of young boys and girls in their tweens carrying out suicide bombings. Why not execute them early, and save American Republicans a few winks sleep?
Certainly acts of bad will and inhumanity will really demonstrate the shining beacon of light that is the land of the free and the home of the brave. Remember: Daesh are the bad guys.
Yeah, let's turn away people who are in need of help, just like Jesus would have done.
It should be an issue in the whole State, we do not need Young military age muslims from Syria anywhere in America, I Hope the rest of the State takes notice of that fact and seems that these men for the most part have no wives with them. and we don't need the terrorists from Gitmo either on our Shores.
By the way, I can spell but I was ranting into my microphone.
Right on CIAculinarykid!!!as a person it's lived here my whole life, I am so sick of all these people moving down here. I never see anybody I knew growing up when I go out. Instead, people or actually amazed to meet somebody that actually grew up and is from here because that is all they know. We might as well run a shuttle service from Ohio, Pennsylvania, New York and Massachusetts. And I'm the one that can't afford to live in my own town. It's fucking ridiculous and I'm sick of it. Screw the sidewalks .... That will just cause more delays in traffic. Give me some roads and No more development. PERIOD. If you want to move to Charleston then buy house between Somerville and Holly Hill or move your ass out the Walterboro.
