You can feel free to dislike someone because they act out of spite, but that doesn't mean our government should treat them any differently unless they are committing a crime.
But more government involvement is what is causing the unfair atmosphere. We need to continue to minimize governed involvement, get rid of equal opportunity laws, because as the constitution says "All men are created equal." Nowhere does it state the the government should try to equalize adults. what too many people fail to realize is that more government = less rights.
Agreed. But now the question is, how?
Unfortunately, I just don't see it happening. A) because people are too ignorant to realize what's going on and B) The government has far too much power in many aspects to let this society become a less goverend society.
The only way real change can and will happen is once again thru a revolutionary war. And like I mentioned, I just don't see that happening.
Hopefully, we'll see some actual change this november's election, and hopefully as well it won't go like the way the last set of republican majority did, forgetting what they got elected for.
Why on ground zero though? I'd be offended if it were a christian church ensuing that we are "a christian nation." There's a line between exercising your rights and deliberately being arrogant.
However, if "we" care so much for the location now, why didn't "we" use the location for something more meaningful by now?
Obama gives your tax dollars to rebuild Muslim mosques around the world
While millions of Americans struggle to keep their homes and jobs, President Barack Obama can't give your tax dollars away fast enough.
August 26, 2010
According to the Associated Press, the Obama administration will give away nearly $6 million of American tax dollars to restore 63 historic and cultural sites, including Islamic mosques and minarets, in 55 nations. See the State Department document here.
This is an outrage! Our country is broke. And can you imagine what the ACLU and others on the secular left would say if these monies had been spent to repair Christian churches? They would be screaming “separation of church and state!” Funding Islam on foreign soil with American taxpayer money? Not a whimper.
The latest taxpayer givaway includes $76,000 for a 16th century mosque in China, $67,000 for a mosque in Pakistan, $77,000 to restore minarets in Nigeria and Mauritania, and $50,000 for an Islamic Monument in India.
Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton says the U.S. program to restore Islamic and other cultural sites in other countries is taxpayer money well spent.
Except that all men aren't crated equally. Opportunity isn't within arms reach for everyone, far from it.
I had to look a little more into this. The "mosque" is being built 3-5 blocks over a building in ruins that has been for sale at a very low price. The sight isn't even visible from ground zero due to buildings being in the way. It's, by definition, not a mosque (where people go only for prayer and worship, whatnot.) It's something of a culinary school with a basketball court and 2 floors for muslim worship.
All of this fear mongering is turning this country into a Nazi state.
There HAS to be a reason that America is better every other country. If the freedom is what makes it better then we need to follow it to show the rest of the world no matter how we dislike it.
What about the fact that Immam Rauf refuses to denounce terrorist organizations including Hamas. He says one thing about peace here, but goes to the middle east and gives arab interviews that contradict his peaceful statements. No one has been able to refute the fact that for centuries islam has built mosques at sites where they have conquered and turned the states into muslim states. And the fact that the building they bought was damaged by airplane parts from the ATTACK that muslims inflicted on the US. So if it was damaged during their attack, I would consider that part of ground zero.
I think the problem with America today is too many right. We have no identity anymore because we have no focus.
Common sense to me means, when an action is going to happen that you wont like, avoid it, no? America protects stupid people, hell we even elect them as presidents, but at some point its gona stop. And it wont be pretty.
It will be interesting when it all goes down. Because I wonder if it will spark a jihad thingy, or a racial conflict, or a civil war, or nothing at all and we call it tragedy and all go out for ice cream....
Here is another big question....cant just 3 Christian or Catholic or Jewish "extremists" blow it all to hell, then the rest of the Christian/Catholic/Jewish community suffer absolutely nothing from it? I mean thats how the muslims roll, only seems fair and there are a helluvalot more than 3 who are probably willing or planning on it already. I run into alot of rednecks. Budweiser isnt explosive is it? Because if it is, were all screwed they have the mother load!
Wait we should call the crusaders from the days of the crusades extremists as well I think.(Then gain consider that the soldiers were a forced tithe from any country under the papacy's control, hell a chunk of them probably were not even fighting for the catholic belief). People look at it as a united offensive, when really the pull of soldiers from each nation left it weaker while they were already fighting wars against each other over land/ old disputes/ etc. I doubt the kings wanted a portion of their troops to go riding off thousands of miles to a war that would not benefit them...
Im not saying blow it up, but man every one with a Nascar hat will be on their way lol. In essence, the American people have voted "no" on the subject and plan to enforce their vote.
