    few care what i think

    i think obama's an idiot and a loser for putting himself, for nothing gained, against the will of so many locals, new yorkers, at that

    i think his clumsy and crude imposition into manhattan affairs marks him, among a hundred other things he's done, as a rank amateur at the high stakes of american politics, almost an alien to our mores

    i think that any effort to "improve relations" with some given community shouldn't so wantonly piss em off

    i think 2 + 2 = 4

    i couldn't care less about a mosque at ground zero, personally

    tho i certainly understand where so many people are coming from, and their passion

    since you're so interested in me, i am a born jew, christian convert, fundamentalist, who came in the 1960's to be what i described then for thirty years as "virulently anti zionist"

    i still see aipac as having way too much influence over american foreign policy, and not to our red, white and blue advantage. i am an america firster

    i've always had a great deal of sympathy for international islam, i see a lot of unhappiness there, i've never really seen american muslims as any part of the equation, for most of my life they absolutely weren't

    9-11 changed my views concerning the mideast and the promised land a little, only a little

    i've always been more disposed towards observing and commenting than pressing my beliefs on others

    still interested?

    i find the above really rather boring, way too personal

    thanks for asking, tho, stay up

    So if the GOP passes a "funding" bill with exactly $1 in it and refuse all amendments, then it's the fault of the Democratic Party if that's vetoed or filibustered? Do whatever Republicans say, or else the consequences of their actions are your fault! Nice logic.
