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

    a. Are you willing to overlook that fact? Yep....Nice try though.

    b. Guilty? I don't know until we get the balls to investigate them like we should and drop the PC crap...Nice try though.

    c. I don't expect to win over the minds of those who suffer from Stockholm syndrome....Nice try though.


    Buh-bye now.

    It's not so much that I'm willing to overlook that they haven't been investigated it as it is that I haven't heard or read a single solitary thing that indicates that they should be investigated.

    Is it your position that every single individual and organization in the United States must be preemptively investigated before they're permitted to go about their business in peace?

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

    It was individuals who flew those planes in 2001. Just as I do not condemn christainity as a whole for the acts of a few, I do not condemn Muslims for the act of a few.

    Or is it your fault that the christian group in Detroit plotted to kill a Detroit cop and bomb his funeral?

    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.



    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?

    You make really good points. This world would be so cool if we could just call a time out when we want but it does not work like that and thanks for the reminder.

    Just because the War On Poverty has been a failure does not mean we should give it up. I mean it is not in our nature to give up and esp on a good fight.

    I do not pretend to know all the answers but this should be our main focus and am sure that with the right great minds we have here? We could figure it out. We give up on the programs that do not seem to work and create better ones.

    The ones that work? We create even better models of the programs that work. Example is WIC. Why not have more programs like it? Those kind of things is what we need.

    Peace and community, my ass. This guy just wants to provoke.
    The Saudi prince who was supposedly funding it (and has since denied offering any funding) agrees, and has repeatedly, publicly, asked them not to build it near ground zero.
