I had hoped to post an article on the trials and tribulations of our first homestead winter with frozen ground, frozen pipes, my frozen ass and other new experiences of living in 4-season land. Instead, I'll regale you with cutting edge journalistic inquiry on the current, "All Muslims Are Banned" hyperventilation epidemic being experienced by our domestic snowflakes.
This near-impossible-to-locate data took a mind numbing tool bag of investigative techniques to unearth.
I Googled it, and it took (literally) 22 minutes to compile. Apparently, The Old Gray Lady was taking a nap, so I jumped in to help the elderly.
So, the Snowflake meme on this is that the evil (Not My) President Trump is banning all Muslims from entering the country. Ehhh, not so much.
Here comes that hard hitting investigative stuff, cupcake:
There are 1.703 BILLION Muslims in the world. The seven countries involved with this TEMPORARY BAN, account for 205.3 MILLION of those Muslims (Libya, Syria, Iraq, Iran, Sudan, Yemen, Somalia). If you'll note, the latter number is much, MUCH smaller than the former number.
In fact, it's equal to a little over 12% of all Muslims in the world. Now, my dear cupcake, while you were in elementary school, I know your mom was doing your math homework for you so you could get your Participation Trophy, but seriously, even someone as indoctrinated in socialist ideology as you must know that twelve percent is not 100%.
For you Snowflakes that took advanced math, it's about 1/8th of the total. That means that 7/8th aren't included. It's A SMALL FRACTION of the total. Get it?
I didn't think so.
But wait, there's more!
The United States only has 3 countries on its list of State Sponsors of Terrorism. I know this is going to melt you down to a mushy little puddle, but all three of them are also on President Trump's list, too! Shocking, right?!
Yeah, those wonderful, American lovin' folks from Iran, Sudan and Syria make the cut.
Hold on to your Depends for a second, 'cause I still had about 30 seconds left to find a Bad Guy list that the other 4 banned countries were on. Damn if I didn't find it, too.
The State Department has a page that gives you lists of counties from around the world where you shouldn't go. Unless you don't like your head attached to your body in its current configuration.
Its called the Alerts & Warnings list. With the exception of one of the remaining 4 countries (Libya), all of these countries were already on the list BEFORE President Trump took office.
That Obama fella was such a hater, right?
Oh, and with regards to Libya (home to Benghazi and other shit holes), this was updated to reinforce to American citizens that are still there, TO GET THE HELL OUT.
Now, all of you liberals, socialists and Hollywood elites (redundant, I know...) must feel terrible that Mean Old Not My President Trump and his State Department cronies are hurting the tourist travel to these fine destinations. Princess Cruise lines must be in a tizzy not being able to drop by Tripoli on their tour of the Mediterranean. You know, their always-sold-out Rome to Tripoli to Benghazi loop? Ah, the memories.....
Anyways, you can help these poor people.
Because of your principled stance on this injustice, you should use this list as a travel planning guide. Yep, instead of going to the south of France, go to Mogadishu in southern Somalia. Think of the good times you and the kids can have!
Look at that! They even have a fireworks display! Ahh, magical times for the whole family....
Hey Snowflakes, wake the hell up. Like it or not, there are people in all of those countries that would love to chop off your head, and spit down the hole. The only thing that would be better for them, would be if they could do it in the mall where you get your lattes.
Yeah, yeah, yeah, it's all the fault of the US government. Let's say you're right. Trump just became our president a scant 10 days ago, so he didn't have anything to do with it.
All he's trying to do is make sure your morning caffeine fix isn't interrupted and you can scoot back to mom's basement, a flag burning rally, or your DNC meeting.
Try using some of those critical thinking skills you were supposed to be developing while in college. You know, stop gulping the drivel served up by the complicit media, and actually run a Google search for yourself.
Question everything - positive and negative - and you may see that, as in this case, slowing down the migration of folks with a high likelihood of ruining your day, isn't such a bad idea.
