Joining our Republican Governor Noem, the Sioux Falls City Council by unanimous vote, and the metro area Minnehaha county commissioners by unanimous vote opted to continue welcoming refugees to our community. These mostly Republican elected officials rejected the anti immigrant Trump moves to reject them. I’m going to my local Ethiopian coffee house to celebrate and then to a local Guatemalan restaurant for lunch. Unlike White House bigot in chief Stephen Miller, we take what Emma Lazarus said on our Statue of Liberty to mean everyone seeking refugee from tyranny and poverty, not just Western Europeans. Thanks to Lutheran Social Services, sponsor of refugees, for helping make our community great.

Give me your tired your poor your legal masses yearning to be free.

BJ gave a no response response. Trump’s order did not specify legal. It said only refugees. But defending the indefensible is easiest with a no response response.
I know. This is the part of the thread where brad makes an argument completely irrelevant to the initial post and then goes back-and-forth for 10-15 replies arguing why his irrelevant response should be taken seriously.

What is illegal about being a refugee?
Did I say refugees are illegal? No, I pointed out that immigration is good when it's legal.

However, I will say that we need to look at our refugee programs because it costs 12x more to relocate a refugee in the USA than it does to provide a safe space for them in their own country. So while there are definitely great candidates who should be relocated to the USA it shouldn't be done for mass populations.

In terms of a humanitarian move this is morally wrong because we are essentially not able to help 12x the refugees we otherwise would for the same amount of money.

In addition we are robbing their country of their best and brightest which means that their country won't be able to rebuild like they otherwise would.

No animal shall sleep in a bed
No animal shall sleep in a bed with sheets

No animal shall drink alcohol
No animal shall drink alcohol in excess

No animal shall kill any other animal
No animal shall kill any other animal without cause

All animals are equal
All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others

The side of Brad's barn has likely been repainted a hundred times over in the last 4 years.

Here is the flag that should fly over the White House, and some other locations I can think of.
It is circa 1850 from those who hated the thought of Irish coming to America. Same sentiments we hear in 2020 about ‘those people’ coming to America.

Sioux Falls is a great area. I used to call on a contractor's equipment and supply house there. Bierbach's. I played golf at a course east of town. A neat layout, but at the wrong time of the year the fleas are terrible. I have many happy memories of times in Sioux Falls.

A bit to the west but the Badlands in SD, every time I hike through, a ton of fleas or flea like insect, all over my light colored clothing. Unbelievable amount.

I’m a tough guy because you’re an ass? What a pussy.
No. You’re a tough guy because you typically can’t make it through a thread without calling someone a name or otherwise acting like an 8th grader who just got pantsed in the lunch room.

Let’s be fair. You were a Dick first in this thread.

“I know. This is the part of the thread where brad makes an argument completely irrelevant to the initial post and then goes back-and-forth for 10-15 replies arguing why his irrelevant response should be taken seriously”

You can dish it out but you can’t take it so fvck off.

You are literally proving that post true with every response. And, as usual, calling me names as you do it.

Your arguments lack logic and basic knowledge of the topics being discussed.

In your initial responses to substantive issues you typically either play the whataboutism card or say something that is a complete non sequitur (see above).

The threads you start almost never get traction because most of us don’t even bother to open the crap you post. We know it will be unsourced, partisan BS that no one other than you would remotely believe.

A doorknob could make more substantive contributions to this forum than you do.

By all means, please respond to this calling me another slang term for genitalia. That will drive your point home and make your argument not completely nonsensical anymore.

Ok, thanks for your input.
