Update August 19th: Victor has declined my invitation (see comments) and has signed off. Still no word from Newsome. Some people are really good at taking shots, but have little interest in discussing what they would do about the problems with the refugee program. Any other commenters who wish to answer my challenge below and tell readers why the average American taxpayer should be paying for the program, please do.
Update August 16th: It’s 8:30 p.m. and I came home today eagerly looking for a piece from Victor or Newsome, but alas, nothing! Will get back to posting in the morning.
Update August 14th: It is 7 a.m. and dead silence from Victor and Newsome or anyone wishing to take up my challenge to write a thoughtful piece on why average middle class Americans should have to support tens of thousands of refugees with their tax dollars. Offer is still open, but I am away for a few days and may not have any internet access, so unless I get lucky, I may not be posting comments until Tuesday or Wednesday.
Update: It’s noon on Saturday the 13th, still no opinion piece from these guys (girls?).
Victor and Newsome are a couple of commenters here (that is the post about the London race riots). They are into that personal attack thing (you know we are all a bunch of racists and haters, blah, blah blah) but I seriously want one or both of them to write a guest column for tomorrow. Below is my challenge, but if any other readers would like to take a stab at it, please do so.
Hey Victor and Newsome, I got a challenge for you. How about you write an opinion piece for me to post tomorrow and tell me why my neighbors (farmers, fire fighters, truck drivers and hairdressers) should have their federal tax dollars used to support third world refugees like the family that went to Memphis last week (posted this morning).
I am serious, instead of attacking me and people like me (it’s prejudiced you know), tell our readers in a thoughtful piece why federal/state tax dollars should go for refugee resettlement. Tell us why it’s a good thing to take money from regular folks for this purpose when in fact those people are giving to all sorts of charities of their own choice (church, Red Cross, Boys and Girls Club, etc.) already.
There are a couple of rules, first you can’t call anyone names (you know all that “racist” crap) and attack people personally. And, secondly, you can’t use some religious argument because we all know that any church, synagogue or mosque can sponsor a family and fully care for them on their own dime (also individuals like you can sponsor a family and take care of their needs as your personal charity).
I don’t believe the founding fathers ever intended for the US government to redistribute hard earned money from one group to another with the money passing through the federal treasury. Do you?
So, write a serious piece and explain to our readers your view on the issue of refugee resettlement…. but you gotta write it tonight or early tomorrow so I can post it before I go away.
