foreign terrorism makes some people very scared. more scared than the domestic gun epidemic where there is an average of one mass shooting here in the US a day.
(because someone’s kid being shot by white supremest is different than someone’s kid being shot by an anti-american?)
some are so scared that foreign terrorism might bleed into domestic terrorism that they are trying to stop president obama from allowing 10,000 syrian refugees.
some of the frightened are GOP governors and presidential candidates who yesterday got dissed by the commander in chief, “These are the same folks oftentimes who suggest that they’re so tough that just talking to Putin or staring down ISIL, or using some additional rhetoric somehow is going to solve the problems out there,” President Obama said.
“But apparently, they’re scared of widows and orphans coming into the United States of America as part of our tradition of compassion. First, they were worried about the press being too tough on them during debates. Now they’re worried about three-year-old orphans. That doesn’t sound very tough to me.”
because i don’t like to see my parents fight, i have thought of a great way to split the baby, so to speak: Puerto Rico. the tropical island is a U.S. territory which is called home by over 3 million people.
america’s sweetheart JLo is from NYC but her parents are from PR. america’s other sweetheart, Ricky Martin, was born there. my plan is to send the 10,000 refugees, many of whom, as the president said, are women and children, to the island and let them be safe there.
Puerto Rico is poor. it would be the poorest state in our union if we allowed it to be a state. 77% of the people there make minimum wage ($7.25 an hour). weirdly enough, Syria is even poorer. the average person there makes $12 a DAY.
if we placed these refugees in Puerto Rico their standard of living would immediately rise, they would be safe, and all of those in the home of the brave who were scared by them would be put at ease because part of my plan would be to let them stay in PR for five years before they were allowed to travel to other parts of the US.
something tells me these women and children would not only be happy to agree to those terms, but they would enhance the island and make it even better than it currently is.
perhaps JLo and Ricky could hold a concert there to welcome them and the net earnings would go to funding their living expenses.
