    People fighting, killing and blowing each other up in other places is not really on my top of the list radar screen since we have so many problems right here. I sound like a bitch but would rather our focus be making sure no kids go hungry, get killed by gangsters, etc. than worrying about someone that could give a crap less about us and wishes us death to worry about it.
    No, you don't sound like a Bitch, but rather an American worried like the rest of us when we see what is happening to our country. It isn't pretty, and will not be easy. I too struggle with the terms of being the most prosperous nation on earth, and with that comes not only the good things like our cushy standard of living, but responsibility in the larger picture. I think we can all agree that we would love to see nothing but rainbows, and candy chocolate streams, in a world without war, and the ugliness that is inherent in mankind, but we really need to live in reality now so more than ever.

    Spend money here, get our homeland straight and then maybe try to save the rest of the world. Those that hate us should be the LAST on our to do list. JMO
    Again, you can't just call time out. But the so called 'War on Poverty' has been a colossal failure, what makes you believe that dumping more money into it would be any different?

    If liberals are against Christian churches/buildings recieving government aid, then they must also be against Muslim churches/buildings recieving the same, lest they be proven hypocrites.

    Re: Islamic community center developer seeks federal funding

    This move is motivated by the exact same reason that they chose to build in that location in the first place.

    Just wanting to stick a needle in the eye of the U.S.

    Peace and community, my ass. This guy just wants to provoke.

    At least one Christian church has in fact received funding from the government to build here, and I and most liberals did not have an issue with it.

    Nice try though.

    Do the Park51 organizers have anything whatsoever to do with those planes in 2001? Um, nope. Nice try though...
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    Is that their fault? Um...Nope. Nice try though.

    Are they guilty until proven innocent? Um...Nope. Nice try though.

    Do you have any ground to stand on whatsoever? Um...Nope. Nice try though.
