    I'll have to find the link, but I saw there was only $17 million available, and they are asking for almost 30% of it. That bugs me too.

    There is no longer a shared identity or consciousness in America. That's why we can't understand each other.

    It's like existentialism on a national scale. I never thought it would come to the point where I would believe that America's survival was a secondary consideration.

    Pardon me, but what are you trying to say? We are talking about a building, what does this have to do with America's survival or "shared identity"?

    "There is nothing which I dread so much as a division of the republic into two great parties, each arranged under its leader, and concerting measures in opposition to each other. This, in my humble apprehension, it to be dreaded as the greatest political evil under our Constitution." —John Adams

    No, I'm not serious. That's why my post said that it constituted a provocation.

    But that doesn't mean America will not be fertile soil for the spread of Islam. Google the name Molly Norris if you want a glimpse of the future.

    Re: Islamic community center developer seeks federal funding

    why is this such a big deal?

    with all due respect, i find the question odd

    to some it isn't

    71% of new yorkers, tho, want the project moved, according to quinnipiac on the last day of august

    More than two-thirds of New Yorkers want mosque moved away from Ground Zero: poll

    they have their reasons, it goes without saying

    to understand em, i guess, you'd have to show a little sensitivity, understanding for one's neighbors and fellow workers who don't think exactly as you do

    the same poll, i recall, showed that the same 71% not only wanted the provocation removed from what they see as special ground, they wanted attorney general andrew cuomo to open investigations into its funding

    Exclusive: Concerns Mounting Over Ground Zero Mosque Funding « CBS New York – News, Sports, Weather, Traffic and the Best of NY

    it's a lot like public dollars going to projects like the piss christ---must one be a christian to feel empathy for their compunctions?

    Re: Islamic community center developer seeks federal funding

    So I don't understand because I am not overly emotional enough?

    understanding is wise, not emotional

    thanks for asking

    But you did not present any logic, only appeals to emotion and popularity.
