Interesting food for thought

This is the shit that convinces me there's little hope of any real progress when people on the extremes of both sides act so aggressively and yell so loudly that they don't care to hear what the majority actually think or care about.

I'm not coming at this on the offensive, by the way, it's just REALLY frustrating and disheartening for me to see this so often, not just fron you.

Did you once again miss the part where I said "Republican politician" and not Republican voters? Because unless that is what happened I have no idea what you are talking about.

"People who say they liked him are the ones who just care about rhetoric."

I'm talking about statements like this.

I see. So instead you voted for the anti-establishment working man's hero Donald Trump.

I'd like it if you responded to my post on the first page, I attempted to respond to your (misquoted) Quran texts, and explained a lot of things.

This is a fucking joke. This is why you need some level of competence to hold office. Have some basic understanding of foreign policy, domestic policy, law, business, economics, sanity

Trump has displayed none of this. He's attacked all levels of government. He's attacked businesses, he's attacked human rights.

All in three weeks. The only silver lining I can see is that with the amount of lies they spew daily, it's brought a focus on the truth/facts that seemed to be hidden for a long time. People may be waking up out of their "feelings fog " and start to pay attention.

Apparently he was contemplating at 3am one night whether a strong US Dollar was good for the economy, or a weak. He couldn't figure it out so who did he call? No, not quite the Ghostbusters, but Gen. "I see dead conspiracies" Flynn. Who at least was honest enough to tell him he didn't know and an Economist might be a good person to ask.

Holding my BA Econ. proudly I can confidently tell him: It depends.

Yes, there are terrorists among refugees. There are also rapists and thieves among refugees. About three percent of refugees are criminal. About three percent of any given society are criminal. And among these refugees are also people who fought for Assad, as part of the Shabiha militias for example, or in the regular armed forces.

And again, maybe at some point it will get through: The US resettlement process for refugees is such that it deters any potential terrorists from even attempting to get to the States this way. You are punishing a million for fear of the one (not to mention the fact that the US is only going to resettle less than one percent of refugees from Syria). If they want to get out of the region, they'll try trekking to Europe. Or do it in Turkey.

This ban is an effective measure to make people even more suspicious of refugees, and of Muslims in general. Which, on the other hand, ignores that Syria and Iraq are multi-ethnic, multi-religious countries and the ban affects religious groups such as Christians, Yazidi and those you've never heard of.

Another effect is that now a person like Khameini is getting respected for his characterisation of the US. Job well done!

In defence of bloodysunday972, much like Trump, he probably doesn't have a clue who Assad is.
Trump probably thinks it's the newest Volkswagen model.
