Yes Emily, we live in totally different worlds.You, in how you think it should 
be and me, how it actually functions. I support a *controlled* entry and exit 
of foreigners. We have to know *who* is coming in and what their intentions 
are. And we can't be the world's safety net. There are literally hundreds of 
millions of people in the world that would love to come here and suck off the 
big tit of the American government and maybe try to make it if they can. At 
what point do YOU say *enough*!

    We live in two different worlds, Mike.  I don't envy you yours.  
Closing our borders to________(Who? Everyone from the Middle East and 
Mexico?)___________, which seems to be what you are now promoting below, will 
not stop terrorism.   
If you read the facts, the US right now is letting in very, very, few refugees 
(those fleeing from terror, let us remember) and those that are let in go 
through an arduous vetting process.  
My heart aches for every suicide bombing, that I can assure you of.  
"A breakaway Pakistani faction of the militant Taliban group has claimed 
responsibility for an Easter Sunday bombing in a park in the eastern city of 
Lahore that killed 65 people.Ahsanullah Ahsan, spokesman for Jamaat-ul-Ahrar, 
told the Associated Press that a suicide bomber with the faction deliberately 
targeted the Christian community."In the world of Christianity, "Christ is 
risen" and the faithful will ascend to be with Christ upon their death.  Let us 
hope their families can take some comfort in this.

Emily, your naivety astounds me. Numerous Somali refugees once living in

have the Tzarneav brothers responsible for the Boston bombings and the married 
couple in California from Pakistan and others I can't even remember. Numerous 
*refugee* from Syria and elsewhere are being caught sneaking across the 
southern border from Mexico. Nobody knows how many have not been caught or what 
their true intentions are. How many Paris or Brussels type attacks in the US do 
we have to have for you to wake up. I have no intentions of letting my country 
go the same route Europe has gone.News just broke about a suicide bombing in 
Pakistan by Taliban, killing numerous women and children, mostly Christian 
celebrating Easter.

 Mike, you continue to be so far off base in your statements on refugees that 
are being allowed to come here, it's incredible.  You simply never adjust your 
position to reflect the facts; you rigidly adhere to what you *think* and then 
wallow in self-righteousness, despite all evidence to the contrary.  Fascinates 
me, really, as so many, like you adopt this different perception of reality.  
Your mind seems a very frightened place.

Right, there is *intent* to play the emotions, especially when you show 
bloodied children and lifeless bodies. What's the saying... A picture is worth 
a thousand words. The the next step is that we have to bring them all here into 
our communities or we are heartless bastards. Just as you predictably pointed 
out, the excuse is, *They will enrich our communities with diversity* That's 
just pure BS! There is no way to accurately vet who is coming, what their 
intent is, how or even if, they will adapt to a foreign culture. Meanwhile, 
ISIS is infiltrating the ranks of genuine refugees, intent on doing as much 
harm as they can. Other refugees, not all mind you, who may not be terrorists 
are exactly what liberals proclaim to hate... violent, misogynistic, homophobic 
, anti -Semitic, xenophobic bastards that are convinced that they are superior 
to anyone else. But then, how many women marry a man they are attracted to for 
some reason, knowing he has many faults that she can't stand but is convinced 
that she can *change* him. Sorry Anne, bringing large numbers of foreign people 
here that can't be properly vetted, especially from cultures that have a strong 
tendency to *not* assimilate and think your culture is inferior  is a bad idea. 
It's a far better idea to put pressure on neighboring countries to absorb the 
refugees until things settle down. Western and European countries could help 
foot the bill although the oil rich countries should be able to handle it.

I'm sure Europe doesn't want to go through those bombed out buildings again.
No, you used the word "intent" which implies some sort of manipulation of the 
viewer through the use of these photos. These are journalistic photographs of 
what is going on, not some staged actors playing the part of victims 
accompanied by saccharine background music. You can either accept it or not. 
You can either turn away or not. You can either put yourself 
mentally/imaginatively in these people's situation or not and try and 
understand the fear, the uncertainty, the devastation. You can realize that 
other humans seeking refuge from such horrendous war conditions need help or 
you might not. You could, certainly, conceive of the fact that human beings 
coming to this big country we call "America" might add diversity, richness and 
more humanity instead of having a decimating effect on what you perceive of as 
"America" or not. It is your choice, your ability or inability or willingness 
or unwillingness to accept this possibility which determines your status as 
either compassionate or narrow and small - living in fear and constriction.

Mike, these images are what they are. They aren't "designed" to do anything - 
they are what is happening, they are not staged or embellished. Bombed out 
cities really exist in Syria, real blood is being spilled, families are being 
decimated. This isn't some fiction made up in Hollywood - these are images 
captured on camera by journalists.
Your final sentence is self serving  and remarkably selfish. Don't 
inconvenience yourself or threaten your own comfort by putting yourself out for 
others who are in danger of losing their lives. No siree, let's just make sure 
we all have our daily bread and our creature comforts and the rest of those 
poor sods be damned; fend for yourselves you unlucky bastards.

Maharishi also speaks in the Gita about the balance of heart and mind. One

things through, we get ourselves in trouble. If we are all mind and intellect, 
we lose our full potential as humans. There needs to be a balance.Maharishi 
said Arjuna had a rare balance of both heart and mind. He didn't want to fight 
and kill his own family and loved ones but he also knew the consequences of not 
doing his duty. In the end, Arjuna performs his duty and fulfills his dharma.
Nobody wants entire populations uprooted and moved into foreign, both 
culturally and physically, new locations that cause conflict for everyone 
involved, yet this is the result of past policies in the EU. Europeans are 
rethinking what they have done and realizing being open and unconditionally 
welcoming without thinking things through wasn't the smartest move for either 
migrants or their local populations. There have got to be better ways that have 
not been explored yet.
Well, when you think of what those "better ways" might be have a look at what 
these fellow human beings are fleeing from/dealing with.

Yes, we saw what the open, welcoming and loving arms of the Europeans brought 
them. I doubt that the Pope's washing the feet of Muslims will have any affect 
on Muslims(in general), maybe on his own soul but little on theirs. If you want 
to be served, you must first serve. Karma. Doesn't mean the person you served 
is going to serve you back. Indeed , he may serve you with a knife in your 
back. Another wise man said "Trust but verify". These migrants aren't being 
vetted. There is little or no verification of their true intent or what they 
expect to give or receive from their newly adopted countries. What is their 
capacity to get along?
Here is what I say: stop focusing on the Muslims/Syrian immigrants and take 
note of your neighbors, your country, your fellow Americans. There is enough 
violence, ignorance, intolerance, religious zealousness and threat to keep you 
busy without worrying about other countries, other cultures. There is not a 
continent, a race or a society that is without its fanatics, its desecrations, 
its cruelty. My point was really about how the Pope is one Christian who 
practices what he preaches, who is not a hypocrite. The amount of "Christians" 
in the USA who fail miserably at demonstrating the same spirit as this current 
Pope is astounding. ISIS is one thing, the rest of it is quite another. The 
inability to recognize this is not only crippling but disastrous.

Drumpf wants to build walls and deport and the Pope washes and kisses their 
feet instead. Guess what is the most disarming, breaks down hatred faster?
