About Me

In writing the "About Me" portion of this blog I thought about the purpose of the blog - namely, preventing the growth of Socialism & stopping the Death Of Democracy in the American Republic & returning her to the "liberty to abundance" stage of our history. One word descriptions of people's philosophies or purposes are quite often inadequate. I feel that I am "liberal" meaning that I am broad minded, independent, generous, hospitable, & magnanimous. Under these terms "liberal" is a perfectly good word that has been corrupted over the years to mean the person is a left-winger or as Mark Levin more accurately wrote in his book "Liberty & Tyranny" a "statist" - someone looking for government or state control of society. I am certainly not that & have dedicated the blog to fighting this. I believe that I find what I am when I consider whether or not I am a "conservative" & specifically when I ask what is it that I am trying to conserve? It is the libertarian principles that America was founded upon & originally followed. That is the Return To Excellence that this blog is named for & is all about.

Responses - The Danger Of Practicing Islam

Thanks to everyone who responded to the subject message re the building of the mosque two blocks from Ground Zero - I am always grateful for the insight you give me on every issue with your thoughts.  Below are three responses I think add to the discussion that really picked up steam when BO broke his silence on building the Ground Zero Mosque @ a White House dinner celebrating the start of the Islamic holy month of Ramadan last Friday. 
The hostile anti-American media is trying to paint anyone who is against the building of this mosque near Ground Zero as a bigot citing the Constitution & freedom of religion.  Now any time you hear these detestable people talk about following the Constitution, fighting the deficit, or being concerned about freedom of religion you know they are using our values as a weapon against us & common sense says beware & recognize this - just think of the last few Christmases & how these same suddenly religious tolerant people wanted to make Christmas trees Holiday trees & take the manger out of the public square & you know you are being played for a fool by this mosque issue.  I don't know one person who receives these messages that I think is a bigot - but I do know all of you have plenty of common sense & just the thought of telling Imam Feisal he cannot build this mosque on Park Place in lower Manhattan says a lot about what Americans feel about Muslims & it is based on all the destructive unregretful remorseless evidence we have seen since February 26, 1993.
To put this in perspective - compared to hosting a Ramadan celebration in the White House BO has done nothing to actively support the National Day of Prayer that was established by Congress in 1952 (& is currently being challenged in court as unconstitutional).  Wait a minute - there is something about those words "White House dinner celebrating the start of the Islamic holy month of Ramadan" that may be the biggest point & most overlooked story here.

I wonder what would happen if a synagogue, say 14 stories tall, were to be built directly to the east, i.e. next door.  That way, all of the Muslim prayers would have to pass through the synagogue to go to Mecca.  That might sour them on building their shrine to 9-11 there.  I am sure you could find millions of people willing to pitch in $5 or $10 for the cause...

I think Pat Condell's video is frighteningly true, and we really do need to express our feelings about such an atrocity as a Mosque at Ground Zero.  Dan H's map really got the situation into perspective, seeing the proposal in black and white.  Thanks for sending both!
---Response #3---
I just learned tonight that the site that they plan to use comprises the Burlington Coat Factory Store that was actually part of the collateral damage during the attack when a section of the plane that hit one of the Towers broke off on impact and landed on the roof of the building and through two floors of it.  I understand the store hadn't opened for the day's business yet so there was no one in it. Had it been a little later, even more people would have died  I believe this makes the choice of this property very suspect in terms of the possible propaganda use. I wonder why this information has not been common knowledge up to now.
