Migrant Crisis

There's a terrible migrant crisis in Europe and many other parts of the world today as oppressed people seek freedom and a better life. That takes us to Donald Trump's realistic concept of building a wall to not only keep out Mexicans but others who come here illegally from south and central America. We can sympathize with the people but let's face it, the US is falling apart.

I have seen illegal migration in the past, but never in such epoch proportions. Today, there are few safe havens as the world faces many unstoppable crises from political and religious oppression, to natural disasters and accelerating earth changes, to economic chaos, and more. Are there solutions? History has shown that things evolve from chaos to something better - but that equates with the continuity of the hologram. If you believe we are in end times, then the only way is deleting this hologram. At the crux of this, we find ISIS - tearing down the old - an interesting metaphor connected with the Egyptian goddess.

My neighbor Sal and his wife were planning a move back to their native home in Turkey in 2017 after they retire - but now they are wondering what to do because of the huge influx of refugees from Syria. Sal's sister, who lives in southern Turkey, said the situation is getting so critical they are having second thoughts. His sister says the Syrians do not blend well with the local people in her town and things are getting ugly. Most of these people are broken with huge emotional problems that the normal person cannot fix. Turkey's president told voters to be ready for a re-run of parliamentary elections on Nov. 1. The hope is the ruling party regains its majority as conflicts flare with the Kurdish minority and ISIS.

I have also heard stories from clients with families in Greece and other parts of western Europe that are similar. How can Greece take in immigrants with their current economic problems?
