    Lebanon, the nation of this cartoonist, is home to 1.1 million refugees (with an indigeneous population of 4.5 million). Just maybe the cartoonist is making a statement about the rest of the world’s efforts to help refugees?

    Between narrowminded and starcandles we have perfect examples of the guy in the left panel…and they think they are being responsible adult humans.
    They aren’t…

    I was speaking of your obsession with the “Plutocrats”. All you do is trash everyone without regard to the differences. Yes, Obama has not been as progressive as I would have liked: however, in an extremely difficult situation, he has done quite a bit of good. To trash him as you did with your “Mr. Subservient Pres. Obama another agent of the Plutocracy” is not constructive.
    Now do you get it?

    Read the details about the Trump Foundation by investigative reporter David A. Fahrenthold:

    There is no “charity” in that foundation.

    Y’know, NG, you and Wabbit can sit around grousing about the lack of perfection of everyone, but just how do you think you are helping by not making any distinctions between various people who are willing to run for office? Let me know when you guys are ready to do the work, present a reasonable plan, and I will vote for you. Until then, your “pox on all their houses” is a waste of time and basically irrelevant to real world conditions.

    And to support this conclusion:
    http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/campaign-zero-debunks-police-killings-myth_us_5678c575e4b014efe0d6a2cd

    Somewhere recently I saw a study that indicated that most police killings are done by a small proportion of police officers. Maybe, just maybe, it is time to actually study the patterns of lethal violence in this country, who is doing it, how and why, and the specifics. But of course the NRA won’t let us do that kind of study. It would discredit their stands on “stand your ground”, "defend yourself because the police won’t’ and so on. We might actually have to do something about our policing and justice system, so that’s a no-go. The (white) taxpayer must be considered (except when there is a contract that will hire a bunch of a congressman’s constituents to build bigger and better killing devices).

    Please note that the cartoonist is Jordanian and Jordan has taken a large number of refugees relative to its size and population, as has Lebanon and Turkey. And get some information about the problem from a global viewpoint.
    Facts and figures about refugees

    Global forced displacement has increased in 2015, with more people forced from their homes by war, conflict and persecution since World War II. By the end of the year, 65.3 million individuals were forcibly displaced worldwide. This is 5.8 million more than the previous year (59.5 million).

    This figure of 65.3 million includes:

    16.1 million refugees registered under UNHCR’s mandate

    5.2 million Palestinian refugees registered by UNRWA (United Nations Relief and Works Agency)

    And you might at least be honest about it. It will be dozens, not thousands, but that doesn’t sound so dramatic for your purposes, does it? On the other hand, it is a way to be completely intellectually dishonest. The real story is covered in this link:

    That isn’t what he was pointing out, and you know it.
    For a loudly professed Christian on these boards, your attitude here is a bit incongruous…

  10. martens commented on Robert Ariail 1 day ago

    And your reasons for that opinion are what?
    Trump certainly is better at spending other peoples’ money to his own benefit and their detriment…
