    We've seen it all over the world for decades ,  since at least as far back as the seventies ,    With the  ease of travel these days  , with our open border policy  ,  with the ineptitude of government ,  military , police protections ,   With the increase in  illegal -, legal immigration  , How will you respond to it's arrival HERE ?

    This image shows the actual  preparedness and attitude of our government  for your protections .

      You are obviously ignorant of the extensive network of federal agencies constantly working to thwart terrorism on our soil.  I'm quite certain their intelligence, bravery, and diligence has prevented many potential plots from materializing.  As I have previously stated, you are more likely to be killed or injured by your television set than from a terrorist attack.  I wonder why that is?

        Perhaps it's really you who are ignorant , ignorant of the  reality  of world terrorism ,  I'm sure France , England and  Germany thought the same as you do about the superior  amount of  policing vigilance, against terrorism   !     It WILL happen  here as it happens everywhere .   I believe we have been purely lucky .  And , 9/II  should be enough to  inform the average head in the sand liberal isolationists of that very fact .
        Pretty Panther ,Do you always accuse people of ignorance , who are smart enough to ask the honest  questions , Or are you having a bad life ?

          It already has happened, and too many of us responded stupidly by supporting the invasion of a country that didn't attack us, resulting in the waste of lives and resources.  Now, many of us are responding stupidly after the Paris attack.

          Fortunately, we now have an intelligent, cool-headed President, not an emotionally stunted dry alcoholic looking for Daddy's approval.

            Uhhh,......... Obama is who I was talking about .....head in the sand liberals .....and all that support him .

            Are you listening at all ....right now to what he's saying about  terror , immigrants ,   borders [ or none ]? This man has no clue about what's happening in Europe  right now , The  total  de -nationalization of most European countries is permanent , wait till that happens here ,   even liberals will be dissatisfied with the increased amounts of  racism   , bias ,  violence and unrest that will be  prevalent in the Obama's new  world order .
            I cannot even  imagine what liberals will do when THEY are  no longer the chosen one's of the  socio-  political  welfare spending  programs in America .

              You, ahorseback, think you have more of a clue about terrorism than the president of the United States who has access to comprehensive intelligence information on a daily basis? 


              Yes, let's all react like cowardly bullies, just like after 9/11, and alter our basic values out of fear.  Haven't we done that before?  Do you not recognize the same crap coming out of conservative "leaders" mouths now as then?  Did you not learn from previous overreactions?  By the way, who said he doesn't really think much about Bin Laden just six months after 9/11, and then who actually used intelligence and targeted military assets to track him down and kill him?

              I am beyond belief that anyone would still consider the typical conservative reaction of fear and exclusion to be a solution to terrorism.  Completely baffled.  Thoroughly bewildered.  And, mostly, embarrassed by the cowardly rhetoric.

                Actually the "cowardly rhetoric" is those who conveniently pound their collective heads into the sand of  careful avoidance .    After 9/II  we went after Afghanistan's coercion . Rightfully so and with no regrets .   Iraq was a  disaster only because of Obama's   shut  down . Why waste  a few thousand American lives  for nothing after all .      ISIL was a creation of his failed policies !

                To  assume a strategy   of  withdrawal   , pre-announced is but a  foolish way of winning a war .  We have actually entered into a new  phase of  winning , politically  .  Korea , Viet -Nam ,  prove this .....Democratic presidents don't mind starting wars but fail considerably in attaining any progress other than  creating some of the most offensive  political rhetoric .  like  Obama , taking full credit for Osama's death is proof of this.

                Our president has chosen a  actual  non-policy of dealing with terror .  "If we just ignore it ,it'll certainly go away" ! As a matter of fact ,  I  actually do have more of a plan  for a war on  terror than simply  ignoring it .   Than  fully letting it inside of  our own borders .    Perhaps the fact that  we are already  catching Syrians at our borders   would indicate to you  of what's going to happen  . 

                His secretary of state sure  has a plan  for terrorism .   Ignore it !   Deny it , Cover it up , and then  lie about it !

          It seems there is a BIG LIST of ISIS terror attacks in the US that have been covered up by the FBI and the Obama Administration. 

          http://www.wnd.com/2015/11/big-list-all … p-by-feds/

          "US authorities have charged at least 66 men and women with ISIS-related terror plots on American soil – including a handful of refugees."

            Remember the man who developed the Theory of Relativity?
            His name was Albert Einstein and he was a refugee!

            Do you remember this lady?
            She was the US Secretary of State and she came to this country as a refugee!

            Actor Andy Garcia was a refugee from Cuba following the Bay of Pigs fiasco.

            Pastor Rafael Cruz, the father of GOP candidate Ted Cruz, is a refugee who settled in Texas.

            Film director Billy Wilder... yep... was a refugee!

            Gloria Estefan is also a refugee.

            And who could forget Marlene Dietrich and the fact that she was a refugee too!

            Refugees are not terrorists. Fanatics are terrorists.

              We are ALL immigrants of course ,      Todays  volatile  world environment , pre-existing socio-economic  problems , mass  cultural differences , and religious  particulars , demands however  at least an attempt at a totally vetting immigration  policy !. WHICH , even our own and Obama's FBI people say  that they cannot do !

              The DE- nationalization of European countries  ,  BECAUSE of unchecked  refugees  and immigration  policy is  actually creating  or at least stretching to the limit's,  their welfare costs and resources.    Any one look at  East London      ,the outskirts of  Paris ,  many European counties , because of the difficult  and continuous borders  ,  are taxed to the limit , both economically and  in an organized response to this situation .

              People , women , men and children ......are dying  from the unchecked  refugee  influx,   I often wonder why that alone doesn't bother the liberal parrots of  foreign policy ?

      Here, this blows Obama's accusations of the GOP and Republicans out of the water.  His ignorant response about being  “scared of widows and orphans,” and “worried about 3-year-old orphans.”

      Its hard to believe that Obama is as uninformed as he seems to be.  I'm not buying it!

    Did any of you know that individual states have the right to refuse  federal immigration subjects  from being sent  their states  by constitutional protection ..........The tenth amendment ?

      Thank you for that info. I wondered about it but hadn't researched it.  The tenth amendment, huh!  "The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people." 

      WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT THIS? (put any Trump bias aside)... “We’re going to have to do things that we never did before," Donald J. Trump said, opening the door to a database of Muslim-Americans and special identification noting their religion. "And some people are going to be upset about it, but I think that now everybody is feeling that security is going to rule."

      That is smart, I think!
