A MOSQUE IN MANHATTAN
Let's start with a simple question, say you are driving a car and come up to a red light, you stop, the light turns green and you look to your left, and you look to your left and there is a semi, a hundred yards away seemingly doing sixty miles per hour, do you still have the right of way?
I have few rules in life, a major one being, " Do not create "stuff", where "stuff"does not already exist. I hope you can figure that one out on your own too., I am not being helpful , am I?
Basically the answer is very simple, we are a free country with a guarantee of religious freedom, so the Muslims can build a mosque where they wish, problem solved, but the life is never this simple, you would know if you are old enough though.
I DO PUBLISH A COPY OF THIS BLOG AT ANOTHER SITE, TIME TO TIME I ALSO MAKE REFERENCE TO IT OR TO WHAT WAS SAID THERE!
It was not my intention to start a new controversy, but the reaction is predictable, and angry, but ok.Pleas rest assured I AM NOT advocating for a mosque in Manhattan, far from it, but I do want everyone to look at their own self and their feelings, As I said in the start of my book, look at the man in the mirror.
So the question must be where do these feelings come from, and how to handles them.
But let me talk to the Muslims first, not like they do on the talk radio or the right wing blogs, but real questions for real Muslims, in the name of peace.
Forget about 9/11 if you ever can for a minute, Do you suppose God gives Muslim men seventy- two virgins in heaven, do you really believe that?
What are you doing to improve the lot of non Muslims in your own country, ( where ever you came from). Started a letter writing campaign, ask your friends, fun raising? what?
There is no making one religion above another, so why you always ask for special rights for the people of your own religion.
Is the sharia law better than the American Constitution, would you like to impose sharia law or even try to say it is better than the constitution.
Just stay on topic, don't go off on tangents like the talk radio hucksters are doing.
As any thirteen year old knows, you don't ask mom and dad for increase in allowance, or for new cell phone when they arguing over money.
As it happens, among other things, like the election of Obama, or the health care mess, the budget deficit, we are in a "recession", money is tight and the jobs are being lost as fast as the people are losing their homes. The stuff has hit the fan. For thirty years or more, we have been living on borrowed monies, and borrowed time. I have detailed this mess for many years, chronicling the miss steps of the Democrats, and Yes the Republicans also. Right now we can not even find our way out of this mess and there is no end in sight. Today Glenn Beck is holding a rally of something or another, about "restoring honor" he says, as if honor is something we have lost, have we? Really now, how many of you are considering yourselves to be dishonorable??????And if you are , is Mr. Beck is going to restore it and how?
I know what he means, like not having a tax cheat for our secretary of treasury for example, or not making a whore monger like Elliot Spitzer a news commentator, or Newt Gingrich who took divorce papers to his cancer stricken wife, or elevating another whore monger like Dick Morris, or honoring Rush Limbaugh who had his house maid shop for prescription pain killer. Well we ARE talking about honor are we not. But we listen to all of these for advice, corruption in the system swings both ways here. I will not discusses the personal morality or responsibility of the individuals of our nation, I have talked about it at length already elsewhere. NO I do not have book you can buy to make you feel better about yourself by blaming others for the decline of this country, while it makes me rich.
Any way while we are, all sides, busy blaming each other for our problems, the Muslims step in to this mess wanting this that and the other, and the mosque in Manhattan is only one item on the list of DEMANDS. Well, Good Luck! You know you are starting some crap.
LIFE IS A GAME OF CONNECT THE DOTS, IF YOU DON'T CONNECT ALL THE DOTS OR DON'T CONNECT THEM IN THE RIGHT ORDER YOU NEVER GET THE PICTURE
