    Irrational fears of the townsfolk are irrelevant to the 1st amendment and most Muslims are not terrorists. Mosques are no different than churches,synagogs,temples and other religious buildings. The government can not ban one and allow others.

For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    ~5000 people dying does not justify what your propose

    That's like six weeks worth of traffic accidents

    That trillion or so would have been better spent on the War Against Traffic (tm)

    Some of the fundamental changes to Americans' legal rights by the Bush administration and the USA Patriot Act following the terror attacks:*

    * FREEDOM OF ASSOCIATION: Government may monitor religious and political institutions without suspecting criminal activity to assist terror investigation.*

    * FREEDOM OF INFORMATION: Government has closed once-public immigration hearings, has secretly detained hundreds of people without charges, and has encouraged bureaucrats to resist public records requests.

    * FREEDOM OF SPEECH: Government may prosecute librarians or keepers of any other records if they tell anyone that the government subpoenaed information related to a terror investigation.*

    * RIGHT TO LEGAL REPRESENTATION: Government may monitor federal prison jailhouse conversations between attorneys and clients, and deny lawyers to Americans accused of crimes.*

    * FREEDOM FROM UNREASONABLE SEARCHES: Government may search and seize Americans' papers and effects without probable cause to assist terror investigation.*

    * RIGHT TO A SPEEDY AND PUBLIC TRIAL: Government may jail Americans indefinitely without a trial.*

    * RIGHT TO LIBERTY: Americans may be jailed without being charged or being able to confront witnesses against them.*

    I don't agree with the extent the Patriot act covered mainly because it didn't go to the root cause. There were mosques in this country who provided support for the 9-11 terrorists and others who committed acts of violence here.

    Isn't that what you are basically doing with Muslims? A tiny minority who happen to be crazies and you are lumping them in with all Muslims as though somehow Muslims are prone to terrorism. The vast majority of Muslims are not terrorists just like the vast majority of Catholics are not pedophiles, vast majority of cops are not corrupt, the vast majority of conservatives are not racist, the vast majority of those opposed to war are not Code Pink and so on.

    The root cause is people being overly freaked by a statistically insignificant number of deaths.

    I hate that people died, of course, but our reaction was disproportionate to the damage and we lashed out emotionally

    Again, nothing but a dangerously lackadaisical attitude coming from the Leftists of the world.
