Ron’s Briefs


I’d like to share my briefs with you. My brief comments, that is.

Sometimes a little sanity is in order. These days, a lot of sanity is in order. I don’t purport to be someone of great wisdom but I do consider myself pragmatic. In that spirit, I share my briefs with you below, random and unabridged…

Since 9/11, 0.000003 percent of refugees admitted to the US have been arrested for plotting terrorist activities. Also since 9/11, irrational fear and prejudice have made people really bad at math.

Simple equation: Refugees + Seeking Asylum = LET THE DAMN PEOPLE IN!

Free people don’t live in fear or act out of hate. Doing so just makes you a slave.
