    Proof positive.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    I need to see proof that he's a US citizen.

    We did. You didn't accept it. That makes it your problem from now on. Not our's.

    Building religious buildings is a pretty damn important part of practicing your religion.

    And even if you argue it ISN'T a religious building, but an "interpretive center" it's still an open and shut case since you'd be discriminating based on religion.

    ah, so that's why he came out now

    LOL!

    then walked back his statement

    then walked back the walk back

    or so say the ny times, abc, politico (all links posted above)

    this must be why, as well, he took this "local issue" and turned it into a "national firestorm," as politico's carol lee describes

    thoughtlessly idiotic

    the president, i mean

    By saying this you assume all Muslims are terrorists and that the property must therefore be a monument to terrorism since all Muslims agree with that.

    That's faulty logic and ignorant.

    Evidence to suggest they are extremists and support views of a terrorist nature please.

    Hint: New York City has a magnificent public transportation network and there's no reason, none at all, that the Temple to Terrorism can't be built in another part of New York to service all the muslims just pining for access to a mosque.

    I'd be glad if the US sold them the UN building.
    I'd appreciate it if you could debate without using childish insults like "temple of terrorism".
