Trump Hits a Nerve

   Everybody in media and politics is anxious over the latest Trumpism.  Banning the entry of Muslims smacks of a kind of intolerance no one wants to be part of.....
   But make no mistake. There are a lot of people ginned up over terrorism and are tired of hearing about Islam and in the next breath, beheadings and terror.
    Donald Trumps call for a halt to Muslims coming to America will strike a chord....Not that some won't feel uneasy about it, but xenophobia and prejudice are flourishing as discord with the Middle East continues.

That's not what he said. Part of the same sentence he says "until".

Banning muslims makes perfect sense at this time. This is not a permanent solution, but now is not the time to bus over shiploads of folks we know nothing about. We admitted the California murderer too, but only after Obama did a careful vetting of her background.

We don't have a gun problem, we have a Muslim problem.

The worse domestic terror attack since 9/11?

• San Bernadino: 14 killed some 20 wounded ... husband and wife both Americans did the evil deed.

Worst domestic terror attack in American history?

• April 19, 1995: OK City the Murrah Fed building: 168 killed over 600 wounded ...
• Three white Americans with 55-gal drums filled with over 7,000 pounds of explosives a Ryder rental truck whose leader: former Army Sgt Timothy from Lockport, NY said later before he was put to death that he only had one regret: "That the whole damn building didn't come down."

Why that attack? McVeigh said: HE HATED GOVERNMENT.

What was the GOP outrage about that - anyone recall? I suspect it was nothing like what we hear today being spewed.
