  1. California is not listed as pro or con, but the con in the governor’s office will probably invite all those refugees being turned away by the other states. There goes the rest of my neighborhood.

  2. They are here already. But say all but one state says they can’t come in, we have no borders between states. No fences, no walls between states. The cells can roam freely. Unless authorities have a free hand to round them up and deport them and or shoot the bad ones, Islam spreads and so does their killing spree. Our people are in mortal danger and Obama couldn’t care less–as he hides behind massive security for himself. The muzzie bastard!

  3. What I don’t get is that if Paris would not have happened the other day, all of these ‘send them to me’ politicians had open arms for them.

  4. You’re damn straight they’re already here. The White House knows it and they want to stack the deck with as many more as they can against Americans.

    This will not end well, trust me.

  5. Exactly! WTF do candles, flowers, ribbons and crying for cameras do? Not a damn thing! I get so sick of stuff that doesn’t matter a hill of beans!!!

  6. What good does it do if only 56 of 57 states refuse refugees? Last I checked, state border hopping is pretty easy.

  7. san diego county gets lucky! east county (el cajon) is one halal shop after another. most stores, one block from police department and courthouse, have arabic signage. was there friday and the women in headscarfs are en masse. la mesa, next to el cajon, is overrun with somalis who all drive cabs.

    two cities destroyed. noticed montana not on list.

  8. WA governor said this today:

    I stand firmly with President Obama who said this morning, ‘We do not close our hearts to these victims of such violence and somehow start equating the issue of refugees with the issue of terrorism.’

    Washington will continue to be a state that welcomes those seeking refuge from persecution, regardless of where they come from or the religion they practice. We have been and will continue to be a state that embraces compassion and eschews fear mongering, as evidenced so well by Republican Gov. Dan Evans’ welcoming of Vietnamese refugees here in the 1970s.

    Idiot.

  9. Even John Boy Kasich has stepped up to the plate and told Obozo no more and is looking for state solutions to keep them out.

  10. Really? Just sad… Had no idea. Who’d they push out? South County is Mexican territory and National City Filipino/Asian but I don’t recall East County demo.

  11. Are we ever screwed in Minnesota, our trust fund, naked on the floor thumb sucking, black panther financing, marble mouth, hard left nut job, worthless piece of crap Govenor, mark Bleeping dayton would take them all if he could.

    What a bunch of screwball people we have here, I almost think we’re just screwing with Washington by voting in all these clowns like al “the pornographer” franken,
    amy “The daughter of Jim Klobuchar beloved sports writer” klobuchar,
    jessie “the homo” ventura….

    No, I’m surrounded by idiots.

    Go Vikes!

  12. @All To Much. Yes since Texas said no more! It will be all on us. With the other who knows how many illegals we are already supporting!

  13. What did Ben Franklin say, ” Join or Die” ?

    Wrong headed governors need to get their heads on straight and- just say no.

  14. I saw that, crazyeighter. I live in pristine (except for the libs from WA, OR, CA) Wasilla, Alaska.

    Here’s a list of our Muslim residents:

    Beau Bergdahl’s father lives somewhere in Alaska. He’s a high-ranking Muslim leader/activist. Remember when he was standing next to the Supreme Leader, sending his buddies coded messages in the Bergdahl Garden?

    There is one reported ISIS training camp in Talkeetna, according to Joe Miller. They’ll be good target practice for our large population of veterans.

    …and one large mosque in Anchorage.

    Then there’s this:

    Your post reminded me that I saw my first Muslim at Target this summer: A woman pushing a carriage out of the store, with a baby in it. She was heading right towards me as I was getting out of my car to go in. She was dressed all in black, completely covered, just like in pictures I’ve seen. She kept heading toward me with a powerful stride. Her car was coincidentally next to mine. I looked her over as she was putting her kid in the new car because I really had never saw a Muslim in person.

    Her feet were in sandals and quite large, with hair on the toes, like a man! Then she suddenly and forcefully threw back the head covering, revealing a balding man in his 30’s! A Muslim man dressed like his female counterpart. I’m still confused.

    So, what was it? A Muslim transvestite? I thought that was against Sharia law. I noted that it was quite warm in Wasilla that day to be dressed in black, making him at the least a masochistic transvestite.

    We don’t need pretend Muslim women. We already have our own very special transvestite who works at the local Dairy Queen. The seniors go there to gawk because there’s nothing else to do. He’s a powerfully built 20 something, deep voice, five o’clock shadow, exaggerated makeup with bright blue eyeshadow and red lipstick, hairy arms that reach out the drive thru to hand you your order, and give you the vapors. He can swish with the best of them.

    At least we know what he is.

    That’s enough excitement for Wasilla.

  15. I would like to say where the terrorists should strike first in DC but can’t.

    Some town in Michigan elected an all muslim city council, and they already told the Whites to get out.

    My hometown is flooded with muslims. I have dealt extensively with them and they are the most hateful, rude, obnoxious people. Same with blacks. Their arrogance and entitlement is infuriating.

    Where I now live, my spouses home state, it too is flooded with muslims. My hometown is close to military bases, and where we are now has military bases. And where we are now is chosen to be flooded with muslims. These muslims, and Eastern Indians, have money. I would like to know where they get their money. And they get government assistance too.

    Every time I see muslims in stores they give dirty looks to American women, and the muslims kids do too. I just want to knock their heads off when they give me dirty looks.

    I have a relative working in a court, He told me that muslims get special treatment to placate them so there will not be problems. Ridiculous! It makes him very angry.

  16. I was thinking about this for a long time last night. I’ve settled on “Islamofascism” as the perfect word to describe what’s going on.

  17. I notice that Douchey-Douche (Andy Boy) is not on either list. Is he:

    –trying to figure out whose ass he needs to kiss more with a view towards an eventual presidential run?
    –too busy worrying that he’ll go down with Sheldon Silver, who is now on trial (it doesn’t look good for the defense)?
    –still in his usual mode of dreaming up more new lib policies that will make New York an even more intolerably overcongested, overtaxed, overpriced shithole than it already is?

  18. Where were all of these chicken shit governors a week ago? If Paris had not happened they would have sat by and watched their states get colonized by ragheads. Cowards, every damn one of them.

  19. Illust8r, I agree Inslee is an idiot. He makes me miss Chris Gregoire and I thought she was a lousy governor after she stole the 2004 governors election in Wash. state from Dino Rossi. Bring back Dixy Lee Ray from the dead. She was a pig farmer.

  20. If you weren’t around Washington state in the 70’s when Dixie Lee Ray was governor you might’ve missed a lot. She was the former Chief of the Atomic Energy Commision, an incredibly smart woman who didn’t believe in globull warming (unlike Inslee who worships ma gaia), was very out spoken with a mind of her own and she wouldn’t take shit from anyone of either party. You either loved her or hated her. And she was a pig farmer as well, once when her pigs had a litter of pigs someone in the press named at least 3 0f the pigs Dixy, Lee and Ray. She was a definite and different character as governor and loved playing up to that role

  21. So unless there is already a one world order running things why does the United States or any other nation have an obligation to take in people from these countries? and don’t tell me it’s the compassionate thing to do! these people are bent on taking over not assimilating into countries where they migrate to, just look at Britain and what’s happening all over Europe. this is a global scheme run by someone in the shadows with the intent of world domination. I’m all for immigration most if not all of us are the product of immigration, but what’s happening with these so called refugees is not immigration but migration for nefarious reasons. as citizens we must make our voices heard and our votes count.

  22. I would remove Oklahoma from the list. Governor Mary Fallin did not say she would not accept refugees, she just called on Obama to suspend Syrian refugees until he could assure the people. She said she wasn’t suspending Oklahoma’s refugee program.

    “The Obama administration needs to assure the public that the background checks they are doing are rigorous, and that American lives will not be endangered in the process,” said Fallin. “Until then, I call on the Obama administration to suspend any Syrian refugees into the United States. During these uncertain times, the Obama administration needs to make sure those entering the United States are not terrorists.”

    The governor said she has confidence in the two refugee processing affiliates in the state. Catholic Charities in Oklahoma City and Catholic Charities in Tulsa have the responsibility of placing refugees in the state.

    “Oklahomans have welcomed refugees escaping religious persecution for many years and will continue to do so,” Fallin said.

  23. east county was always considered redneck territory. some cowboy types, motorcycle riders, horse owners. mixed bag of white folks. very sad. but el cajon and la mesa, around 70th street were transformed by middle easterners.

  24. We have become a society of “feeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeelings” over logic, long ago. The reason for that is The Left cannot bring forward anything on its merits. Instead, they go for the emotional buy-in. Ever notice that the whole refugee thing was encapsulated in that photo of a drowned little boy. Even the backstory of his old man’s putting his family in harm’s way was ignored. Yes, it’s all about feelings over substance.
