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."

Nothing really new here
Yoo hoo: USA has been vetting refugees since the 1700s: http://www.fairus.org/facts/us_laws

 The process is no secret and it is not something new. Plus, there are multiple web pages dedicated to the subject. All the Governor has to do is make a simple internet search,

Enhancing the laws
What is new is that The House will vote Thursday to enhance oversight of the screening process for refugees from Syria and Iraq. It is always good to be wary of Republican enhancement.

This is nothing new either. With every wave of refugees there is another backlash of fear, anger, and special legislation to deal with the "intruders."

When Congress addresses this, watch for the xenophobes in action.

VENEZUELA'S DEMISE: INEVITABLE COLLAPSE OF SOCIALISM, CAPITALIST COUP, OR SOMETHING ELSE?

DRAFT, WRITING IN PROGRESS, OPINION
Was the demise of Venezuela's government the inevitable result of socialism, the collapse of oil prices, a coup, or something else?

We are being told all the time that the nation's collapse is because socialism is bad  (very bad), and that capitalism is good (very good) and will fix it.. I don't believe it.

Local Group organizing: meeting Friday to discuss Crisis Center for the mentally ill and others.

A local group of concerned citizens is organizing to push for a regional, Coordinated Crisis Response Center in Benton and Franklin Counties.  The workshop will be held Friday morning (June 8, 2018) at Claude Oliver’s office in the Tri-Cities Realty Group, 1919 N. 20th Avenue, Pasco, Washington.
