The end result of banning Muslims

    Greetings from the Ridge.
    I’ll tell you the truth. I’m up a tree and don’t know what the heck I’m supposed to do. One of our most vocal presidential candidates has advocated banning all Muslims from entering the United States, which is of course just a small step from kicking out the 12 million who are already here working, raising families, and serving in the U.S. military. One of George Washington’s most trusted soldiers was Peter Buckminster, a Muslim who fired the gun that killed British Major General Pitcairn at the Battle of Bunker Hill.  They served in the Civil War, World War II, Vietnam, and more than 3,500 Muslims have fought with the U.S. military in Afghanistan and Iraq.
