    Hahah, OK. But in all seriousness, I don't think the John Stewart thing was aimed at those who lost family members. Rather I think he was discussing the people who equate all Muslims to the Al-Queda type, the ones who insist this is a ground zero mosque when it's a few blocks away and a community center, etc. And those are valid. I think people can also be legitimately upset about it; but we have no legal recourse against it.

    Of course you can. You can critque silly talking heads and fake outrage without insulting those who suffered loss on 9/11. In fact, i would be more insulted if you treated me as so unable to to see the difference and tried to remove all crititque becasue of my feelings. It's condesending. And too often, it has been dishonest.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

    You know I agree with you... they have every right to be assholes and put that mosque there..... That said. a sniveling Stewart can't call one group out without being sensetive to those who lost family in 911

    Stooping to my level? All I did was ask you to back up your claims you made against my posts and you couldn't do that and now you have to run away. Guess you've proven me right. Was it too much to ask for? You to back up that mouth running of yours? Too much? Too hard? So yes, you misrepresented my posts, I asked you to back them up, you couldn't. That's intellectual dishonesty because you originally made claims against me that were untrue and you haven't admitted it and you haven't proven your side; all you're trying to do is run away. So run, run as fast as you can. But you did misrepresent my posts and my intent and you could not back up your claims; so you are being intellectually dishonest. Q.E.D. Don't like it? Don't do it.

    So Muslims from all the states and territories got together and unanimously chose this man to speak for them?
