    Speaking for me, I would argue it is merely false outrage. There is no poke in the eye, none. Not at all. This is a non issue all around.

    But, I did want to say hi.

    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.

    The reason people are giving you a hard time over bringing it up is because it is an entirely different situation.

    It's largely an irrelevant issue.

    We're arguing over, whether or not, a religion should be allowed to build a building for themselves.

    It's moronic.
    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.

    And the Port Authority said they could not do so due to financial reasons. There would be a case if someone was barring the church from being built simply because it's a Christian place of worship. The two issues are different and both have different issues attached to them. The issue with the GZ mosque is that because a mosque is a Muslim place of worship, and Muslims were responsible for the 9/11 terror attacks,. Therefore it is wrong to allow them the right to build their mosque near GZ. The issue with the church isn't the same. No one is barring it from being built because it's a Christian place of worship, it's due to financial reasons as stated in other posts.

    anyway, rauf's the fella who says he's trying to improve relations with his neighbors

    obama backs him up (well, that was before the "walk back," but later burton "elaborated" on obama's "clarification")

    bottom line, it's not working

    by all means, go for it!

    If the church had evidence that the zoning laws are not content-neutral, or that they were being applied to them differently than they are applied to anyone else, they'd have a clear-cut First Amendment case. They'd probably be running to Federal court as fast as their legs could carry them, and rightfully so.
