"~XED ADC 07099 15 =~UL JEFFKO SMALL TOWN PAPERS, INC. 217W COTA ST SHELTON WA 98584-2263 THE ITALIAN-AMERICAN VOICE OF MASSACHUSETTS ml (Formerly LA GAZZETTA del MASSACHUSETTS) VOL. 119 - NO. 49 BOSTON, MASSACHUSETTS, DECEMBER 4, 2015 $.35 A COPY Sal Giarratani Sometimes Jeff Kuhner Goes to Far Sometimes when Jeff Kuhner on his weekday radio show on WRKO goes too far with his Muslim talk. I do not belief all Muslims are ISIS or even Radical Islamists. Many are not. I know sometimes he turns up the volume of his rhetoric to get callers to rant more on the air. This is when he isn't quite that entertaining. Stirring the pot with shameless rants of his own may be good for his show's ratings but it doesn't help with rationale dialogue over important issues. My issue is with our president .who is in seemingly complete denial about the name and face of our enemy. It is Radical Islamist terrorism. It is a distortion of the Islamic faith but Islamic nevertheless. Kuhner needs to be more precise about who and what the threat is worldwide and not just stoke fear among listeners of Kuhner Nation. When he runs off at the mouth he actually weakens his arguments which are often quite valid. States Have Enforcement Power On Immigration Law Lots of liberals love talking about how the states can't do anything about President Obama's policies on im- migration, Syrian refugees or executive amnesty. They all think they know everything but not always as in this case. Constitutional scholars while acknowledging that only the federal government can set immigration policy, the powerto enforce immigration policy falls to the states. Check the Constitution. There is no power granted to the federal government to policy immigra- tion policy or law. Our founding fathers were smarter than most of us today, especially the progressive left. They did not trust the federal government with all the powers that liberals think is in place today. Without the state's participation, the federal govemment is pretty much impotent. This is why the president reached out to those 31 governors who are saying no to Syrian refugees without guarantees that the homeland would be safe from ISIS terrorism sneaking in with the flood of massive immigration from Syria. Governor Baker hasn't said no, he just wants to be sure that these refugees get properly vetted first. Definition of Earned Income Tax Credits When you take money from those who work and hand it over to those who don't. Let's Get Something Straight Most of us get it. All Muslims aren't terrorists. We get it. Stop lecturing us, Mr. President. What we want is for our government to recognize this. But what we do want is to be protected from the terrorists who are Muslim. Get it? Bashing the 47 Democrats Forty seven Democrats on Capitol Hill joined Re- publicans to pass legislation on Syrian refugees get- ting properly vetted before accepting any here in this country. The Democratic Party establishment has gone ballistic with what these 47 Democrats did and many are calling for them to quit the Democratic Party for voting Republican. I guess it is okay for Republicans to be at odds with each other, b.ut Democrats must toe the line like lemmings in the water? As a Reagan Democrat, I commend those Democrats who voted with their conscience rather than spout political talking points.
