Christmas is taking precedence over other stuff, including blogging...which is as it should be. I am pleased and fortunate to have such a large and wonderful extended family to share these special days with.
And remember (whether you are a parent yourself or not, you were once a child) that the best gifts in the world come from children.
Erratic, limited, or no posting till after 2016 commences. All the best from Mister Tristan (the blog AND the 7 year old human being)!
In a two-page letter sent to U.S. Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX) on Monday, Dale asked state officials to reject the resettlement of more Syrian refugees within the Lone Star State’s borders after Friday's terror attacks in Paris. He argued that immigration
documentsgranted to refugees would allow them to obtain Texas drivers' licenses, which in turn would allow them to procure firearms.
“While the Paris attackers used suicide vests and grenades it is clear that firearms also killed a large number of innocent victims," Dale wrote. "Can you imagine a scenario were [sic] a refugees [sic] is admitted to the United States, is provided federal cash payments and other assistance, obtains a drivers license and purchases a weapon and executes an attack?”
Meanwhile, regular American crazy people, who over the years have demonstrated a frightening recurring propensity for committing mass shootings, are not even mentioned. I guess we only need to keep weapons out of the hands of foreign terrorists. If they're domestic, then the 2nd Amendment applies.
So never mind the dead, that's just the price we pay for our 2nd Amendment freedom.
