EYE Don't Think #SweetHomeAlabama is on any refugees' list of desired destinations

A Syrian refugee family is seen on a beach moments after arriving on a raft on the Greek island of Lesbos, November 10, 2015. Since the start of the year, over 590,000 people have crossed into Greece, the frontline of a massive westward population shift f
Go away, kids. Alabama is too scared of you.
So, here we go again.  You know the drill.  Make Alabama proud by inflaming fear and bigotry in the name of The Lord.
Charming, just charming. Alabama Gov. Robert Bentley has hit on a way to posture about the Paris terrorist attacks that feeds right into a whole bunch of the worst stereotypes about his state. Bentley “will not stand complicit to a policy that places the citizens of Alabama in harm’s way,” which is to say he has announced he’s refusing to host Syrian refugees in his state. You know, the Syrian refugees fleeing daily violence as bad as or worse than the Paris attacks.
Yep. This is the same Governor who places the citizens of Alabama in harm's way everyday because Obama.
Alabama Gov. Robert Bentley used part of his State of the State Address on Tuesday to offer a full-throated defense of his decision to reject Medicaid expansion, one of the key components of President Barack Obama’s health care law.
Under the Affordable Care Act, the federal government will pay 100 percent of the cost of expansion for the first three years and then 90 percent after that.
“But how can we believe the federal government will keep its word?” said Bentley, one of a number of governors who took advantage of a U.S. Supreme Court ruling to turn down the deal. “The anything but Affordable Care Act has done nothing to gain our trust.”
EYE wonder if the Syrian Refugees could play football would they be welcome in #SweetHomeAlabama?  

So much for Christian...Conservative... Compassion in Sweet Home Alabama

EYE am just saying... there is more than a whiff of hypocrisy.

"Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free."
