Notations On Our World: On The US Political Scene w/The Latest From @RealDonaldTrump

It has been an extremely challenging 24 hours as Donald Trump called for the total and complete shutdown of Muslim Immigration.     The debate has been fierce.  What we decided to do to was to feature in its' entirety Professor Jonathan Turley of Georgetown Law School's reputation of what we view as an absurd and inhumane declaration:

Under the bill, dual-nationals from Iran, Syria, Iraq, and Sudan or anyone who has travelled to those countries in the past five years would be barred from the program...."       We will be following these on-going developments over the ensuing days with this final thought which all must take note of:
