  1. Re: How many more Muslim terrorists should we let in to the United States?

    How is this a liberal immigration policy?



    Which policies? Be precise.

  2. Re: How many more Muslim terrorists should we let in to the United States?

    I didn't realize you were actually trying to forward an argument given that your OP was just a rhetorical question. My mistake.

    How do you propose enforcing this?

    Yes, 3,000 deaths is definitely small potatoes in comparison to 500,000+ deaths caused by gun violence (homicide + suicide, no casualties included) in the same time frame.

    Yes I disagree with both premises as they are bare assertions, but you are incorrect that the premises would be acceptable if I had agreed with you. It must be supported. If you object and request...
