What did I misrepresent ?

Your link did not have "another argument" in it.
I went to the specific sections of the law it cited to see what argument(s) might be there.

I concluded there was NONE there.
I also invited you to cite one if you could.
Instead you come back typically with another of your insults.

You have simply bought into the going headlines and bullet points of the radical right.

Trying to duck an issue by precluding follow-up just because
you insert that "you are not advocating it" is cowardly.

Confidential to Lamplighter,

That's why I directed my initial comment to another individual. You're in and out of lucidity which is reflected in your interpretation of what others have to say as well as the inappropriateness of your responses; also, you're lack of awareness and/or denial of such when others point it out to you. It doesn't change how others here interact with each other: it only changes how they interact with you. This isn't just a function of age, it's something more.

I'm so sorry.

Nice to see nothing much has really changed around here.

This is just a test of tapatalk and it's picture loading.

Carry on.

How about those Syrian refugees?

I've read that they're not keen on France.

Ask glatt to try taking the post with the image off the public board for a little while and restore it later. You don't have to tapatalk like a refugee (don't have to tapatalk like a refugee).

Maybe it's stuck because Tapatalk got the image set up before the server move and it thinks... nah that can't be it

Remove it, it may come up first because it's a GIF.

No need to remove it. There's a setting deep in a subfolder in tapatalk that lets you toggle image previews off. Fixed it for me.

Paris attacks

Perhaps we can supersede that GIF with another, more user friendly one, for those who don't want; or, can't be bothered to change their settings.

Slate.

Today, Republican presidential candidates are climbing over one another in a race to block the entry of Syrian refugees. They’re doing this even though, among the nearly 800,000 refugees we’ve accepted since 9/11, not one has been convicted of—or has even been arrested for—plotting a terror attack in this country. (A few have been arrested for links to terrorism elsewhere.) Why do refugees have such a clean record? Because they have to go through an elaborate process: screening by U.N. evaluators, “biometric and biographic checks,” consultations with U.S. counterterrorism agencies, and an in-person interview with the Department of Homeland Security. On average, the process takes about a year and a half—or, in the case of Syrian refugees, about two years.
~cut~
That’s why, among the 27 fatal terror attacks inflicted in this country since 9/11, 20 were committed by domestic right-wing extremists. (The other seven attacks were committed by domestic jihadists, not by foreign terrorist organizations.) Of the 77 people killed in these 27 incidents, two-thirds died at the hands of anti-abortion fanatics, “Christian Identity” zealots, white anti-Semites, or other right-wing militants.
