Would you take the risk?
I have ten thousand gum balls in my gum ball machine. 10 percent of them are poisoned. Are you prepared to take a handful? Are you?
Sorry, but I don't chew gum, so I'm not interested. Besides, you haven't given any incentive!
I believe the 10,000 gumballs is suppose to represent the 10,000 Syrian refugees the U.S. is planning to allow to come to the U.S.
OK, then that makes no sense. Where did the 10% come from? The State Department released figures this week, saying only 2% of the refugees are males of military age, and that the majority are women and children. I
After the last raid in Paris where a woman was a suicide bomber a lot people don't trust the women or the children either. My guess is the 10% is a reference to "the small percentage of refuges" who might be terrorists in a group of 10,000.
There are 100 white men in your church, 1 out of 5 is a rapist. Are you comfortable attending that church and talking to these men?
These sort of analogies and types of conjecture fail to address one crucial factor here: we're talking about people fleeing for their lives and trying to find a safe place to live until the violence in their home countries is resolved.
Maybe a handful of violent terrorists are sneaking in with them, but there are violent terrorists sneaking into nations ALL THE TIME - and we haven't stopped all international travel have we? Besides, there is a pretty heavy screening process for these Syrian refugees to even enter the country right now.

Besides being driven by biology, what else drives people to have children in the 21st century?It hasn't really been a long time in the history of humankind that we had a CHOICE of having children or not.
