    Well it seems to me that it's their problem if they're gonna be all pissy about it. There's no rule in this country that you have to be sensitive, nor should there ever be. Ain't no right against being offended. There is right, however, to religion and property.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

    Why is it that people tend to agree with people that agree with them?

    Gee, I don't know ...

    I'm just curious why this has anything to do with conservatism. I do consider myself to be Conservative....but how does that apply to this issue? I don't get the connection. Are you saying that Liberals are neutral about the Mosque and only Conservatives express sensitivity about it? Link?? Hahahaha!! ;-)

    Here's the point:

    Might it be insensitive? Sure, of course. Should we make policy based on whether people will be upset? No.

    Should people who object try to convince the mosque to locate itself elsewhere? Sure, of course -- this is America. You have the right to do that. Should that fact alone prevent it from being built? No, of course not -- this is America. They have a right to do that.

    Because who cares what someone from Canada has to say? LOL

In theory, some of those loopholes were understandable, but in practice they sometimes made it possible for millionaires to pay nothing, while a bus driver was paying ten percent of his salary, and that’s crazy." -Reagan

    Because journalism is dead. We have to dig for news that is being intentionly blacked out by the MSM. Once they silence Fox, talk radio, and take control of the internet we'll be Venezuela.

    You can't discard the opinions of outsiders allegedly on the basis that (as outsiders) they don't know what they're talking about, except when they agree with you.

    But with one major difference.....

    Number of guns and gun owners in USA.
    Most estimates range between 39% and 50% of US households having at least one gun(thats about 43-55 million households). The estimates for the number of privately owned guns range from 190 million to 300 million. Removed those that skew the stats for thier own purposes the best estimates are about 45% or 52 million of american households owning 260 million guns).



    there are about 80 million gun owners in America with a combining total of 258 million guns


    WikiAnswers - How many gun owners are there in the United States of America
