XENOPHOBES LOOK TO "ENHANCE" REFUGEE LAWS

Read a report earlier today that makes me think Mass. Gov Charles Duane "Charlie" Baker, Jr  wants the world to stop spinning while he gets up to speed on refugee processing: He reportedly said he opposes the administration's refugee plan "until more is known about the vetting process."

Green is for live and let live, while Red and Blue are about greed and conniving, and this is no exaggeration when both of the above have always supported the overthrow of democratically elected socialist governments, replacing them with puppet governments, dictators and tyrants who practiced suppression-for-profit. Green is for racial and economic equality as well as for recognition of tribal rights. Our 2016 Pre
