Ann (without an *E*), it's called *emotion*. No it's not, Mike. The fact that you read my description as "emotion" shows me you haven't had that experience I was talking about. If you live your life by *emotion* it will be a roller coaster and you will be miserable. "Emotion" has a bad reputation based, partly, on this assumption that emotion is unreliable and mostly hysterical. Nope, emotion is the indication of a healthy beating heart and the ability to feel. But, again, I wasn't referring to emotion in my previous post. I told you before, I am not a people lover. I feel more for that poor gorilla Harambe who was shot at the Cincinnati zoo than I do for the child who fell into the enclosure. I am a bit of a wretch that way. Better to live by wisdom which is a balance of heart and mind. A balance of emotion and intellect. That baby died due to stupidity of the parents trying to escape the very hell that they bring with them and intend to force on all of us. "Stupidity". Interesting. Is it stupid to flee certain death or torture? They made a choice to get in a boat or to face almost-certain destruction at the hands of barbarians. You who live in a coddled society (as I certainly do) have no idea, none at all, of what these refugees were facing. You who have the luxury of living in a structure not likely to be blown up any minute, you who don't have a wife or children who could be killed or raped or enslaved at any moment, you who have the luxury of popping into your vehicle to make a short trip to the grocery store to buy whatever delicacy takes your fancy in a moment and whose biggest threat lies in tripping on the sidewalk or losing your electricity during the next thunderstorm. Don't give me your shite about a parent's "stupidity" for trying to flee to safety. They come to foreign lands only for the economic benefits and aren't happy because the culture is so foreign to them. They attempt to re-establish their old culture that was the root of their misery in the first place and by doing so they have to become politically dominate over their host's culture. They cause their on misery and attempt to spread it to everyone else. Well, based on your fretting over them, they have succeeded in making you miserable alright. But, you have done this to yourself. Why not free yourself from the bondage of your fear and prejudice and just enjoy life? It doesn't get any cushier than right now. From: "awoelflebater@...

They don't assimilate and prefer Sharia law, which they say is Allah's law, over *man made* Democratic law, which they believe is inferior.You need to look at some of the polling that goes on among migrants. Most prefer a life under Sharia. That is why there is such a push to allow it in western countries.When westerners resist such change, we are deemed Islamophobic. Ridicule by the PC police. They aren't fleeing Islam or Sharia. They are fleeing war and poverty, regardless of it's cause. You seriously need to look at the history of how Islam spreads. They move into countries just as they are now and claim to be a religion of *peace* only wanting to be left alone. Their reproductive rate tends to be far higher than that of their host countries, as it is now in Europe and the US and Canada. As their numbers grow, they become more demanding of their religious and political *rights*. As they become a strong minority they become bullies and eventually they become a majority and the new minorities are screwed at that point and become subjected to Sharia. Sharia is not friendly to non Muslims. Of course there are more *liberal*, or moderate Muslims but they are subject to the strict interpretation of the Koran and Sharia. There is an old saying, "a little knowledge is a dangerous thing". Strict interpretation of Islam is also a dangerous thing and it will always be in the hands of the radicals because they will be the ones that enforce Sharia. Putting Sharia in the hands of the masses is like putting a loaded gun in the hands of violent teen with Asperger Syndrome! It's dangerous to anyone around them These *migrants* aren't fleeing Islam, Sharia or their former cultures or else they would abandon them, they are fleeing war and poverty. These wars and their poverty are a direct result of their religion and culture and they are bringing it with them! Look at the crap going on in Europe today. Europeans are disarmed and their governments aren't resisting out of PC. The United States is different story. That crap going in Europe, won't last a minute here until we are disarmed. I am overwhelmed, I simply don't know what to say. No, wait, I thought of something. Based on what you say here, take another look at that dead baby and simply think about that - objectively and without fear or prejudice. Try it. Sometimes things exist independently of any other agenda or idea, they exist as a sort of pure moment of revelation or realization and this image could be just one of those things. I find when this happens, when you can step outside of everything except this one pure moment of insight or experience it is a real gift, an opportunity to see how puny other things are in comparison. I can momentarily move away from the little 'me' and become expanded, bigger, in some way. From: "awoelflebater@...

Are you really that naive ? So, let me get this straight. Families fleeing from their war-torn countries are looking to bring Sharia law down on all of our heads, even as their children drown and entire boats are capsized? These refugees are running from bloodthirsty, inhuman monsters who hold no ability to either think or feel any emotion deeper than killing the next guy who doesn't believe as they do and it is the refugees who are looking to overthrow our world as we know it? I think you, dear boy, are the naive one. No, worse, you are someone living in a fantasy world created by a combination of reading bad news sources coupled with a lack of ability to maintain reason - even simple logic. Now, look at the picture of that dead baby and tell me we should be turning these people away and making them take dangerous water or land journeys simply to try and stay alive.

The baby, who appears to be no more than a year old, was pulled from the sea on Friday after the capsizing of a wooden boat. Forty-five bodies arrived in the southern Italian port of Reggio Calabria on Sunday aboard an Italian navy ship, which picked up 135 survivors from the same incident. German humanitarian organisation Sea-Watch, operating a rescue boat in the sea between Libya and Italy, distributed the picture taken by a media production company on board and which showed a rescuer cradling the child like a sleeping baby. In an email, the rescuer, who gave his name as Martin but did not want his family name published, said he had spotted the baby in the water "like a doll, arms outstretched". "I took hold of the forearm of the baby and pulled the light body protectively into my arms at once, as if it were still alive ... It held out its arms with tiny fingers into the air, the sun shone into its bright, friendly but motionless eyes." The rescuer, a father of three and by profession a music therapist, added: "I began to sing to comfort myself and to give some kind of expression to this incomprehensible, heart-rending moment. Just six hours ago this child was alive."
