Subject: NYC Mosque Mania


I don't get it why people are against a mosque being built near ground zero. It is anti-American to do so. What is wrong with people?

I think it is as simple as lack of revenge for 9-11. Bush never got Osama bin Laden "Dead or Alive" as he bellowed to America he would and instead he invaded Iraq and got Saddam and no WMDs. Plus the media, especially FoxNews, inflames people. I keep hearing people say, "They have the right to build a mosque anywhere but it is an insensitive slap in the face to build it near ground zero." I say to that, "Isn't it a slap in the face to New York City Muslims to insinuate that they had anything to do with 9-11.?"


Talk about Ugly Americans.


When you think about it, almost half the people in this country were willing to put Sarah Palin a heartbeat away from the presidency. Shudder. And half of Republicans think Obama is a Muslim. So, in my humble opinion half this country suffers from a mental disorder based on an inability to absorb simple facts i.e.

Obama's birth certificate or that Saddam had nothing to do with 9-11.


And Obama can't magically make eight years of Bush and the Republicans financial rape of America disappear in two years.


The flag pin wearers in this country are angry and selfish and they want an instant solution to the problems their party created.


We've got a long way to go, baby.

Macho Man PR


 Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin fired darts from a crossbow at a gray whale off Russia's Far Eastern coast on Wednesday in the latest in a series of man-versus-nature stunts designed to cultivate the image of a macho leader.

Putin held his balance in a rubber boat that was being tossed around in choppy waters off the Kamchatka Peninsula, and eventually hit the whale with a special arrow designed to collect skin samples.

Japans Ozawa Thinks Americans Are Simple Minded



A key figure in Japan's ruling party dubbed Americans "simple-minded" in a speech to fellow lawmakers Wednesday.

It was not clear what prompted the remarks by Democratic Party heavyweight Ichiro Ozawa at a political seminar, in which he otherwise paid tribute to Americans' commitment to democracy, saying it was something Japan should learn from.

"I like Americans, but they are somewhat monocellular," the former Democratic Party leader said. "When I talk with Americans, I often wonder why they are so simple-minded."
