Strait out of the conservative playbook. When you can't argue with facts, you switch to trying to connect it with something unpopular.Soros is a menace, a liberal disease on any country he gets too intwined with.
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.
The church's original site DIRECTLY ABUTS GROUND ZERO. The Port Authority wanted to purchase the land in order to build security protections. The church used this position to try to leverage the PA into giving it a much bigger site elsewhere. After lengthy negotiations, the plans fell through. The church is now (and has always been) 100% able to rebuild on its original site.
The mosque location is TWO BLOCKS AWAY FROM GROUND ZERO. The Port Authority doesn't give a **** what happens there and has no authority to get involved. The mosque purchased the property from a private investor and is moving forward with its plans, just like any other business or investor would. They didn't "get past the commission" on ****, as there's nothing preventing destruction of a non-landmarked building.
No, I'm saying "you don't know what you're talking about."Sorry, but I think there is fishy stuff going on here. And all I get when I dig to uncover it in here is answers like yours, which basically said "WTF cares!"
This is probably the most ridiculous use of "never forget" that I've ever seen.Sorry, but I think that is just kind of sad for a country that vowed to "Never Forget"....
Which doesn't have a ****bit to do with this goddamn building.Soros is a menace, a liberal disease on any country he gets too intwined with.
People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.
Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

Remember the two main issue that plaque the GZ Mosque:
(1.) The GZ Imam. Imam Feisal Rauf has made insensative and pro-terrorist comments to the media in the past including in his recent book blaming America for the 9/11 attacks (due to its support of Israel). Imam Rauf has also called for the destruction of Israel (Al Jazeera, Oct 2009) if Israel "continues it policy of attacking Palestinian children." Rauf's wife Daisy has made anti-Semitic and inflammatory remarks in the past as well. With these comments, many are wondering if the GZ Mosque will be a hotbed of terrorist sympathies or draw anti-Semitic Imam's to its doors. Please note that *** all women are barred from worship with men *** at the Center, following strict Islamic Sharia Law rules.
(2.) Money. The Cordoba Initiative has yet to release its FY2008-2009/2009-2010 tax records, or answer the question how they went from $100,000 in cash liquidity to nearly $100,000,000 in assets without disclosure. CNN's Anderson Cooper asked Friday: "Where is the money coming from?"
