I suggest all the NYC Freeper’s take fido for a walk down to that building site for the morning and evening deuce drop.
A dog’s got to doo what a dog’s got to doo.
Oh, and be sure to bring some Fido treats. Mine really, really loves pork rinds! Throw some around for the other pups, too.
Think of it: You can say, that it was only followers of Shinto Buddhism and not all Shinto Buddhists that perpetrated that attack. You can say that non-Shinto Buddhists were also targets of Shinto-Budhist military attacks. You can say that was almost 70 years ago.
But even so, that sacred ground has been respected by all Buddhists for 70 years.
Peace requires respect but war does not. Muslim building the Ground Zero mosque because while their mouths say "PEACE" their thoughts and actions say "WAR."
Peace requires liberty, freedom of contract, and respect for private property. If those aren't first on your list, you have your priorities badly mixed up.
Muslims are demanding America treat it the way Muslims would never dream of treating Americans, and if we don’t fall for the trap, then “the terrorists win.”
It’s nice to see most Americans ain’t buying it.
Your faith has no basis. After the Revolution was won and the British army left, many Loyalists(knowledgable historians say close to 1/3 of the polpulation)remained behind. They held private property to the same extent as the triumphant rebels. And yet they had to flee to Canada to continue to express their loyalty. There was no ACLU to fight for their right to remain and build statues of the King - even on their own private property.
Certainly....but you didn't asked about those who took up arms agaisnt the U.S. during the period. Please inform me when, if ever, we passed similar laws depriving ALL Muslims of property rights and the first amendment?
LOL! Well, the mosque is an act of war. So enjoy the strong property rights provisions and other freedoms you’ll experience under Sharia.
Your "freedom of contract, and respect for private property" are domestic rights of individuals and their government and neither the forces or money behind that mosque are individuals or domestic.
If it makes it clearer, think of the forces of international Islam in America as today's version of the Nazi Bundts in the US before WWII.
The British fought with mercenary armies and Indian allies - not with armed civilian Loyalists. Civilain loyalists did not flee because they had taken up arms. They fled due the Loyalist opinions they maintained & dared not express and the mistrust others had of them.
Um, yes they did. Read up on the battle of Kings Mountain sometime.
But 1) the economy's the main issue, and Republicans can't lose sight of that, and 2) there's plenty of room for public anger over Obama and the mosque without politicians getting in the way.
Don't stop talking about it or being angry about it, but let it be a real popular reaction, not something politicians call upon to score points.
Don't let the politicians take the issue away from you and don't make them look like they don't have other important issues to deal with.
Dissatisfaction and anger over this won't go away and will affect the election, but don't let it start to look like something politicians have ginned up, rather than a legitimate popular sentiment.
You're entitled to your opinion.
My opinion is, either zoning laws apply or none do.
And if the local populace does not want a mosque, then it doesn't happen.
And my prior objection still stands.
