This Isn’t For The Faint of Heart

The climate of this country ( the United States ) has changed dramatically in two weeks.

While under Obama there were people unhappy ( granted there were times I was one of them ) I hardly remember so many people being so openly hostile. Now I said OPENLY hostile. With Trump there have been numerous protests, rogue tweets, cabinet members that do not buy into Donald’s agenda. Do I think it’s bad? No not necessarily. No no one should be followed blindly.

It bans indefinitely people from entering the U.S. from Syria. Plus, other countries for 90 days. This includes green card holders, people with permanent resident status as well as refugees. The list is quite lengthy. Following is the actual text of his executive order.
