    Thanks, for the laugh. My cousin asked me what I thought of this and wasn’t it sad that They would build it close to the site. I pointed out the strip joints near by and my favorite church shouldn’t be near playgrounds. I didn’t know at the time that this had been covered on the real news John Stewart. I’m not sure she understood were I was coming from but I think the founders covered this well, Built it.

    Oh, since this is a “9/11 mosque” thread ….

    I think you’ll appreciate this next.

    Especially in light of the fact that the author is an unapologetic paleocon if ever there was one. My favorite paleocon, now that Bill Lind has stopped writing.

    You can tell by the way he goes off the deep end whenever the “illegal immigration” issue comes up. His jelly spot, I’m afraid. *sigh* I don’t even comment when he brings the matter up on his blog. There’s just no reasoning with him on this particular subject. :(

    But he isn’t afraid of doing homework. No sirree. Particularly when it comes to Islamic history. And he doesn’t stick at calling bullshit when other people don’t do theirs.

      It’s very difficult to be cross with Pat Lang, even if one disagrees with him on something. He’s the real deal.

      He’s being generous by calling Newt Gingrich “sometimes educated.” Newt lacks the essential element of education: the ability to learn something inconvenient.

      If there were one fact that I wish that rabid anti-immigrant people knew, it is that the driving force for illegal immigration is US policy. In Latin America, especially, dumping subsidized American corn has driven small farmers off their land; they have no skills suitable for cities. Militarization of the drug war has made many places insecure, so people flee from there. NAFTA, which it was promised would benefit the economies of both sides, has failed.

      Thanks for the link, Stormcrow.
