Confusing

According to liberals, the country is divided since Trump too office,. If this is true, then it must mean it was united under when Obama was in office. If so many people were united so much for a progressive liberal then why did so many of them vote for Trump and not another liberal?

According to liberals, Trump is crazy, no one likes him, no one trusts him, he is ruining the country, other nations hate him, he is anti-everything, etc. An yet, they are desperately trying to find a way, someone, or something that will stop him from being reelected. If he is all they say he is, it should be an easy win for them.

Selective outrage

Why should citizens or the government of the United States be concerned about Jamal Khashoggi, a self-exiled, independent, dissident journalist who lived in the United States but was a citizen of Saudi Arabia and was murdered in Turkey by citizens of Saudi Arabia? Why is the United States condemned by the media for not taking some action against Saudi Arabia? Why are other counties in the region not condemned for not acting against Saudi Arabia? Could the answer be as simple as American politics and the media?

Shadow people

Ever heard of shadow people? These are the wispy figures that appear in dark shadows or appear in your peripheral vision. They are usually described as
  • Tall, slender, bipedal figures.
  • Dark, one-dimensional shadows.
  • Not quite a fully human form or without any detailed facial or body features.
  • Wearing a hat and a trench coat or a cape.
  • Having glowing red or orange eyes. 
Some may be similar to the Outlier logo of this blog.

When you first notice shadow people, you have an ominous feeling about them and may freeze, and, as you watch them closely, they also don't move. When you turn a light on them, they disappear, and when you remove the light, they don't reappear. Much like the Weeping Angles in the BBC television show Doctor Who, shadow people only seem to move when you are not looking at them.

What are shadow people? Some say they are extraterrestrials, demons or other spirits, astral bodies, time travelers, interdimensional beings, or just figments of imagination. More likely, the reason for seeing shadow people is the same reason we see the face of a man on the surface of the moon or mars or we see the image of Jesus on a wall or on a piece of burned toast or we see the image of Satan in a cloud of smoke; it's called pareidolia.

Pareidolia is a psychological phenomenon in which the mind responds to a stimulus, usually an image or a sound, by perceiving a familiar pattern where none exists. While at first, something may seem to be just a random assemblage of shapes and colors, once you pick out or have pointed out an object in the clutter, you see it and cannot unsee it. Likewise, a random noise may sound like a word if you are told to listen for the word. Numerous examples of pareidolia can be found on the internet. 

Humans have evolved to quickly identify the human shape, as well as the shapes of other animals in their environment because they may be potential threats. Camouflage clothing works not because it hides the soldier from view, but because it hides the shape of the soldier.

Maybe there is another explanation for shadow people. Maybe they are manifestations of outliers who are studying other humans in an effort to understand why they say, do, and believe such stupid things, such as the existence of shadow people.

Media

Remember when the media reported? Now they reportedly.

Unions

Last Friday, President Trump issued three executive orders aimed at getting rid of low-performing federal workers. The orders promote basing employment on merit rather than tenure, encourage agencies to fire employees instead of suspending them, and encourage workers to devote at least 75 percent of their time on direct job duties.

J. David Cox Sr., president of the American Federation of Government Employees (AFGE), a union for federal workers, said the orders were “a classic example of this administration’s attack and assault on women, attack and assault on minorities.” So, getting rid of low-performing workers is an attack on women and minorities.

If this is true, then who are the high-performing workers?

All the answers

We should only elect political commentators and columnists to public office. They are the only ones who know what's the best thing to do for every situation and how it should be done.

The media

The media no longer report what happened; they report what could have happened, might have happened, would have happened, should have happened, etc. Instead of facts, they report rumors, gossip, hearsay, speculations, insinuations, feelings, judgments, impressions, opinions, social media, etc. Their purpose is no longer to inform; it is to persuade.

Ban killer cars

In Arizona over the weekend, a self-driving Uber car killed a woman who was crossing the street. The vehicle was operating in autonomous mode when it struck her but there was a human in the driver’s seat (probably texting).

This is just another case of things killing people, such as when firearms kill people. It is obvious that self-driving vehicles are dangerous. There is no need for self-driving vehicles. What if one plows into a school and kills innocent children. They should be banned, no matter the type of vehicle, the size of the engine, or the number of cylinders in the engine. The only reason these vehicles are around is that of all the money car makers and the AAA pay lobbyists and the money they donate to politicians. Ban all self-driving vehicles or at least ones with big engines—if it saves just one life, it is worth it.

Where's the outrage?

Why are there no student outrages, marches, protests, walkouts, etc. because of the hundreds of teenagers and children that are killed each year because of the use of alcohol and/or tobacco?

Still crazy?

Why aren’t there any more claims in the media about President Trump being insane, crazy, demented, etc? If he was insane before his annual medical exam, why isn’t he still insane?

Marijuanna

California and Colorado must be the healthiest states in the United States since they have full access to the miracle drug that cures about every disease; at least that’s what marijuana advocates have claimed for decades.

Heros

What happened to our heroes? A hero used to be a person who put his or her life on the line to save someone else from death or serious harm. These days, people are called heroes for just being good neighbors, friends, or citizens, and even for just following their doctor's orders. Now a hero is a little girl who reports smoke coming from a neighbor’s house, marines working motor pool at a reserve center who were killed by a terrorist, a dog who wakes its owner to save him from a fire, or someone who finishes treatment for cancer and is cured. 

If these are heroes, what do we call the people who rush into burning houses to save lives, marines who die rushing onto the battlefield to save fallen comrades, or people who defend someone being assaulted? These days, athletes are called heroes because they are good at their sports, doctors are called heroes because they are good at their jobs, and people who are shot while sitting in a church are considered heroes because they died (had they lived they would just be called victims).

You may admire someone who has done something great, or have sympathy for someone who is sick, injured, or has been killed but these things are not heroic. Bring back the true heroes, the people who risk their lives doing heroic things.

Death penalty

There are those who say the death penalty is cruel and unusual punishment, even though the signers of the constitution believed in and used the death penalty. These same people say that a life sentence is a worse punishment for murderers since they to have sit in their cells and dwell on their crimes for the rest of their lives. So, if life imprisonment is a worse punishment than the death penalty, and if the death penalty is cruel and unusual, then it follows that a life sentence must be more cruel and unusual than the death penalty.

In 1995, Susan Smith received a life sentence for murdering her two small sons. After over 20 years of dwelling on her crime, what are her thoughts on the crime she committed? In a recent letter to reporter Harrison Cahill of The State newspaper in Columbia, South Carolina Smith wrote,

"It has been hard to listen to lie after lie and not be able to defend myself. It is frustrating to say the least. Mr. Cahill, I am not the monster society thinks I am. I am far from it. Something went very wrong that night. I was not myself. I was a good mother and I loved my boys. The thing that hurts me the most is that people think I hurt my children in order to be with a man. That is so far from the truth. There was no motive as it was not even a planned event. I was not in my right mind. The only reason I lied is because I didn't know how to tell the people who loved Michael and Alex that they would never see them again. I didn't want to hurt them. I knew the truth would come out, but I had planned to kill myself first and leave a note behind telling what had happened. I didn't believe I could face my family when the truth was revealed."

So much for her seeing the error of her ways. She is just as repentant as Charles Manson was after 50 years of "contemplating" his crimes. He died in prison without ever repenting for his crimes.

Concealed weapons

In 1996, North Carolina passed a concealed carry law. Opponents said there would be blood in the streets. DID NOT HAPPEN!.

Then NC allowed concealed weapon permit holder to carry in certain parks. Opponents said there would be blood in the streets. DID NOT HAPPEN!.

Then NC allowed concealed weapon permit holders to carry on greenways, where alcohol is served, and to store weapons in locked cars on education property. Opponents say there will be blood in the streets. DID NOT HAPPEN!

Ethanol

People say we can become energy independent by using ethanol! Where will all this ethanol come from? It will come from corn, a renewable resource. How is this program working so far? Well, the government gives corn growers subsidies to grow more corn. Corn requires water. More and more people are being born and they require water. There is a shortage of water in farming areas. Increasingly, there has been a shortage of rain in farming areas. The farms are short on water and the corn crops are dying. No corn, no ethanol. The result, the government is having to pay the corn farmers even more money so they can stay in business. 

Questions, questions, questions

Why are there no calls for diversity on professional sports teams, such as football and basketball teams?

Why are rich CEO's who lead the corporations who make things that you want and use every day, manage medical centers that save your life and keep you healthy, provide you with gasoline so you can go wherever you want to go, etc. considered evil because they are paid a lot of money while those in professional sports, television, movies, music, arts, news media, etc. who are paid just as much money but produce nothing but entertainment are not considered evil?

Why are the billionaire Kock brothers considered evil because they support conservative politicians while billionaires George Soros and Michael Bloomberg who support liberal politicians are not considered evil?

Remember in 2007, the promises of change, no more politics as usual, and government transparency? Remember when Bush was incompetent because he had no exit plan for the war in Afghanistan (which are still fighting 8 years later with no exit plan)? Remember when presidents were presidential and not entertainers?

If women are paid 20% less than men for the same work, why don't companies hire all women and save 20% on labor costs?

Why are criticisms of Obama considered unfounded and racially motivated while criticisms of Ben Carson, Ted Cruze, and Marco Rubio are considered legitimate and not related to race at all?

Why does belief in a vast left wing conspiracy make you a nut case while belief in a vast right wing conspiracy makes you a viable presidential candidate?

Why is it that the current batch of presidential candidates is the best that the citizens of the greatest country in the world can come up with?

Horrified

Ever notice how politicians are so easily horrified and outraged. If they are  horrified  at a comment made by an opponent, what are they when they when they hear the confession of a mass murderer. If they are outraged by a painting in an art show, what are they when they see a the body of child that has been dismembered by an abortionist. 

Is that so?

On 17 August 2015, Elwood Robinson, the chancellor of Winston-Salem State University, laid out his 5-year plan to the board of trustees. One of his statements was "Most of our students come from families who earn less than $50,000 a year and are victims of racism and discrimination."

We may assume the family income number is true since it may be verified through the university's student financial records. However, what about the part where he said that MOST of the university's students were victims of racism and discrimination? Are we to assume this to be true because WSSU students are predominately black and everyone knows that MOST blacks are victims of racism and discrimination?

Old quacks, new quacks

Remember the old days when people believed a person could read your palm and tell you about your future health. Remember when phrenology, making measurements of the skull, was used to predict certain personality traits. Scientists and other educated people said it was quackery. 

Now "educated" research scientists are saying that a crease in the ear lobe, receding hairlines, length of the fingers, fat in the eyelids, etc. indicate a higher risk for certain diseases.

Next researchers will be telling us that astrology is real.

Self-esteem

China badminton players were tossed out of the Olympics for trying to lose matches to get better playing positions in finals. If the coach had just told the officials that he knew his team was going to win all the matches so he just wanted to let other teams win some matches to build their self-esteem, then they would have been praised instead of being punished. 

Cures for what ails you

Why are we spending so much on doctors and medicine when it is not needed? All you have to do is read the newspaper, watch television, or listen to the radio to learn that there are cures for almost every disease, that are free, and that they are just a phone call away. All you have to do is give them your credit card number to pay for shipping and handling. Of course, there is a problem, the "cures" do not work, the shipping and handling fees are exorbitant, and, once they get your credit card number, they will continue to send you the product and bill you the same exorbitant amount until you tell them to stop, and that you will find it is nearly impossible to get them to stop.

Again with the heroes

Every time there is a catastrophe, conspiracy theories arise, but also other dubious claims arise. An example is the claims that abounded after the murders in the movie theater in Aurora , Colorado.

It appears that every boyfriend that died was a hero for sacrificing himself to protect his girlfriend. A just as believable version would be that they were both running away, she tripped, and he fell on top of her. Or, they were both running away, he was shot, and fell on top of her. Or, they both dived to the floor and since she was in front of him, he landed on top of her.

Does this mean the girlfriends that died did so because they had boyfriends who were cowards because they did not sacrifice themselves to save them? Apparently, women are still helpless and need men to protect them. You never hear of girlfriends falling on top of boyfriends to protect them. Are women cowards?

The heroes would have been the ones running TOWARD the killer in an attempt to stop him from killing more people.

The same week of the 12 murders in Colorado, 14 died in a truck accident in Texas. Where is all the concern for them? Most people do not even know about the Texas deaths. What is classified as a tragedy is determined by who it was that was killed (from whom may the media garner the most attention) and whether the media decides to make the incident into a tragedy. Fourteen people killed by a truck is local news, twelve people kill by a firearm if a national tragedy.

Secret agenda

I watch the television show House Hunters. From the large number of episodes that involve homosexuals, one might assume that a large portion of couples in the United States are homosexual couples. However, according to the 2010 census, only about 5% of Americans report that they are homosexual. Something is wrong here.

A tale of two dog parks

There are two dog parks in Forsyth County, NC. Each one is unique in the type of people who bring their dogs to it. 

Washington Park is 1 mile from the center of Winston-Salem. On a typical visit, you will find at least one owner who thinks their dog does no wrong, at least one owner who will ignore the dog and what it does, at least one owner who will panic if another dog plays with his or her dog, and at least one owner who will let his or her dog take balls and discs from other dogs and will even then use the toy to play with his or her dog. Many owners, and their dogs. are at the park every day and think it is their territory so they become territorial.

Horizon's Park is about 15 miles from the city center. Being in a rural area, the dog park gets fewer visitors and most visitors are from rural areas. On a typical visit, you will find ordinary people out to play with their dogs and to let their dogs play with each other. The owners are attentive to their dogs and are friendly and helpful to other owners and their dogs. There are rarely any problems with the dogs or their owners.

Must be nice to be God

Last week at a church in a nearby town, children were playing in the cemetery while their parents stood nearby. A large stone cross toppled and crushed a four-year-old girl to death. When a child is healed of a deadly disease, it is called a miracle from God. What is it called when a child is killed by a cross at a church? The pastor called it a freak occurrence. Why is not the healing of a child also considered a freak occurrence? God gets excused when things go bad and gets thanked when things go good; you can do no wrong when you are God.

Offending

Isn't it strange how schools say cannot control bullying, but they have cracked down on such things as drawing a stick figure of a gun, bringing unhealthful food in lunchboxes, offending Muslims by wearing a tee shirt with a Bible verse on it, or offending illegal immigrants by wearing a tee shirt with an American flag on it. If you bully by only using force, it appears schools cannot control it, however, if you offend anyone, they will squash you.

Humans are stupid


As humans, we tend to think that we are intelligent. Look at what we have accomplished since we have been on earth—music, art, technology, medicine, space travel, etc. However, as a whole, we are still stupid. Look at what else we have accomplished since we have been on earth—war, eradication other species, torture of animals and humans, belief that there is an utopia than may be attained by socialism, belief that we can borrow our way out of debt, belief that everyone is equal, belief that aliens from other planets walk among us, belief that some people can communicate with the dead, belief that the position of the stars and planets affects our daily lives, and beliefs in other unsubstantiated, unverifiable, far-fetched ideas, theories, and religions.

Martial Arts for Dummies

Martial art "masters" are writing books that may be considered to be in the "Martial Arts for Dummies" category of writing. Many of these books are illogical, lack any type of empirical proof, rely upon unproven claims of some mysterious forces at work, and often are just outright lies. One may ask "Who would believe this mumbo jumbo?" That's an easy question to answer. Just consider who the books are written for.

Birds of a feather

The old saying goes "Birds of a feather flock together." This applies to idiots, such as the Occupiers and fans of Michael Jackson. The idiot philosophy of life is:
  • If you do not have what it takes to be successful in life, then attack the ones who are successful.
  • If you are an unimportant nobody, then act like somebody important by yelling obscenities and being a public nuisance, or by worshiping a perverted freak.

Too Entertaining

China is cracking down on television shows that are deemed "too entertaining." That is not a problem in the United States; not the cracking down part, but the having shows that are "too entertaining" part.

Pink

Is anyone else sick of pink? What makes breast cancer so special? It is because celebrities have chosen it as their cause-du-jour and, since public sheep want to associate themselves with celebrities in an effort to give their lives some meaning, they jump on the bandwagon. Over the decades, billions of dollars have gone to breast cancer research. Other than making researchers and fundraisers wealthy, there has been little progress in finding a cure in relation to the amount of money spent.

Iraq Hikers

Now that the nation has spent millions of dollars to get three idiot hikers returned to the US, they will probably write books (actually ghost written as Obama has done for "his" books) and get millions from the books. Wonder if they will repay taxpayers for what we paid to free them? I hear they are planning their next hike in China along the border with North Korea.

Segal Invented a New Front Kick

In UFC 126 on 2/5/11, Anderson Silva knocked out Vitor Belfort in the first round with a front kick to the chin. Silva credited actor Steven Segal with teaching him the kick. In an after fight interview, Segal said he worked for years to develop the kick. 


He did what! The first kick every Taekwondo or karate student learns is the front kick. It is then used and perfected over the years the student trains. And yet here is an arrogant actor claiming to have developed a new way to front kick an opponent on the chin.


Segal is the Al Gore of the martial arts. It was Gore who said in a March 1999 interview with Wolf Blitzer that, "During my service in the United States Congress, I took the initiative in creating the Internet."

All doctors should be arrested

All doctors should be arrested for withholding disease cures from the public. From advertisements in the media, I have learned there are cures for obesity, baldness, low energy, arthritis, etc. that are not being prescribed by doctors. The makers of these cures will even send you free samples. Doctors must be on the payroll of pharmaceutical companies for withholding these treatments because we all know that the media would not support something that was fraudulent. We all know they are trustworthy and would not allow lies to be told just to further an agenda or make a dollar.

God speaks!

A local high school student recently died in a vehicle accident. A local man with two daughters who attend the same high school was at the beach this past weekend with his family. While on the beach, he carved a tribute to the student in the sand. A religious youth group from the high school was nearby, saw the tribute, and saw it as words from God. The man later said God told him to carve the words. It’s interesting how God speaks. After millions of years of dealing with mankind, he still does it by “signs.”

Integrity

A young, black, Winston-Salem, NC television personality was drunk driving after a party, lost control of his vehicle in a construction zone, and killed a pedestrian. He was remorseful and plead guilty from the beginning. His trial was quick, he served 2 years in prison, got out or prison, and restarted his life.


A white, Raleigh, NC plastic surgeon with multiple DUI arrests was drunk driving at a high rate of speed, rammed a car, and killed a young aspiring ballerina. He had prvious DWIs, showed little remorse, never apologized, delayed his trial for over 2 years, was sentenced to 3 to 4 years in prison,  got to leave prison during the week to work at a local pharmaceutical company got 48-hour weekend passes on a regular basis to visit with his family, was released after 3 years, and is now a practicing plastic surgeon again.


Integrity and personal responsibility are not related to race; you either have them or you do not have them.

Pot Head

I was chatting with an old pot head today. He said weed was not addictive; that he had smoked weed for 40 years because it helped control his anxiety. He said was not addicted. I asked how he knew it helped him. He said because when he stopped smoking marijuana, it made him nervous and anxious; which of course was not related to his being addicted to marijuana. This from an engineer who is out of work because he said he has problems dealing with authority.

Trans-ethnic

I'm a pre-op trans-ethnic. I was born white, but I am beginning to question my ethnicity. I am considered a majority, but I am looked down upon by minorities. I have been profiled by people who think that, just because I am white, I am a racist. Police pull me over for merely speeding or having no brake lights. People bump into me on the street and don't say excuse me. I have been passed over for promotions and not hired after job interviews. I have been called whitey, cracker, redneck, and other derogatory, demeaning names. I am legal citizen, which is rapidly becoming an oddity. It does not matter that people say they are not bigots or that they do not behave as bigots, I can tell that they really are bigots just by looking at them. I tell them they “don’t know me” when they question my behavior but they don’t realize that “I know them better than they know themselves.” I hear the snickers and laughter from people while I am in the room. I notice that waitresses and waiters seem to ignore me in restaurants. I hear people say "hello" and "thank you" to me but I know they don’t mean it. I can tell that they look down upon me and really hate me no matter what they say or do.


Until I complete the surgery and become another ethnicity, I will have to suffer the consequences of being white. I will have to train for, look for, get, and keep a job so I can eat and have clothing and housing. I will not be able to attend protests because of having to work. I will have to pay taxes. I will have to be responsible not only for my actions but the actions of all white people since the beginning of time. Of course nothing comes for free. After the surgery, I will have to sell my soul to become a socialist and vote for liberals.

Pink

Is breast cancer the greatest disease to ever plague humankind? One would think so! There is a month for awareness of it; as if there is anyone who is not aware of it. There are thousands of events to raise money for research into it. Celebrities and politicians make public statements in support of research on it. Food products, vehicles, buildings, publications, etc. are all covered in pink to show support. 


What has all the billions and billions of dollars of donations got us? We have some reduction in deaths, which could have been accomplished for far fewer dollars, we have people who are in the spotlight for a time to make themselves feel good about themselves, we have wealthy professional fundraisers, and we have thousands of research labs that take millions of dollars and produce little. Pink is the politically correct thing to be, since you will be ostracized and called sexist if your are not. Pity the people who have other diseases, especially those diseases which occur mostly in men.

Retard

ARC chastises celebrities, politicians, sports figures, and ordinary people for using the words "retard" or "retarded" when speaking about people with mental disabilities. They try to get people who use the word forced out of their offices or jobs in an attempt to silence them. ARC has decided that the word "retard" is derogatory and therefore may not be used. What is ARC? It is the Association for RETARDED Citizens. Apparently, it is derogatory to even say the name of the organization.

Try

As a martial instructor, I don't want students who try. Trying doesn't show commitment. When you try, you are telling yourself that you may not be able to do it so you do not fully commit yourself and you hold something back in case of failure.

When I know that a student is capable of doing something, I expect the student to do it, and I expect the student to believe he or she can do it. The student may do it, or fail to do it. If the student does it, he or she will know that commitment leads to success and will feel the satisfaction of success. If the student fails to do it, it means the student either did not fully commit to doing it, or I was wrong in thinking the student could do it. If the student failed to commit, the student needs to work harder and gain more confidence so he or she will do it next time. If I was wrong in thinking the student could do it, then I will have to work harder to ensure the student does do it next time.

I don't want a surgeon who says he or she will try to remove all the tumor, I want a surgeon who says he or she will remove all the tumor. A surgeon who tries doesn't have confidence in his or her abilities, so he or she accepts failure as a possible outcome.

Although failure is a possible outcome, it is not an option.

Free speech

A federal judge has ruled that protesters cannot be prevented from protesting at funerals since it violates their right to free speech, and yet judges refuse to let people who do not dress appropriately for court from appearing in court and some judges have even fined and jailed them. It appears that free speech does not apply in their courts.

School dropouts

The latest news is that the education system is failing black males since they have such a high dropout rate. Of course the solution being offered, as it has been for decades, is that we need to spend more money on education. The real problem, and its solution, lies in the black community. The black children are not getting the training and support they need from their parents, relatives, and black leaders. They are not being raised to be productive citizens.
The same holds true for white children, since their dropout rate has also increased.

Schools are there to educate children, not to raise children. Parents, relatives, and community leaders are the ones who teach children to be productive members of society, the schools only give the children the tools they need to do it. Some communities, such as Asian communities, teach their children what it takes to be productive and how to behave properly, and then they send them to school to be educated.

Stop blaming others for your own shortcomings and do something to better your community. Don't expect the government to do your job for you.

Videoing police

Why is it that no one ever video records the times that police are attacked by the people they are arresting? Could it be that they do, but since the videos do not support their agenda, they are not picked up by the news services.

Presumed innocent

"Craigslist Killer" Philip Markoff committed suicide in his jail cell awaiting trial. Since, according to the media, he only "allegedly" committed the crime and the media likes to misuse the "presumed innocent until proven guilty" statement (it only applies to court trials, not pretrial; he is presumed guilty, that is why he was arrested), I guess this means they will be saying he is innocent and will forever be innocent since he never had a trial.

Dog Park

I was taking my dog to the dog park every morning so he could play with the other dogs; he had fun but I did not. There are many regulars who come to the park every day, many of which seem to think that their dogs. and themselves. can do no wrong. The park seems to be infested with radical liberals and admitted marijuana users, who blame all their woes on conservatives, President Bush, and government conspiracies.To pass the time, I would debate current events with some of them. I enjoyed the debates for a time, but then one morning I thought, "Is this the way you want to spend your time, hanging out with a bunch of fat, out or shape, misfit liberal drug users? Or do you want to spend your time more productively?" So I stopped the dog park visits; instead, I take the dog on long hikes on trails in local parks and mountain state parks. Its healthy for both of us, and afterward, I feel clean instead of dirty.

Cancer cure?

Have terminal prostate cancer and only a couple of months to live, then fly to Libya for hospice care. Abdel Baset Ali Megrahi, the Lockerbie bomber, did after he was released from prison by Scotland to die at home> He received a hero's welcome and and is still living large a year later. Funny how that works.

Do they REALLY believe this!

According to USA Today, approval of a mega-mosque two blocks from Ground Zero in New York City would show that America practices the tolerance that al-Qaeda abhors. Bullshit! It shows the world how ignorance and stupid some liberal Americans are. How much tolerance would USA Today show if the  KKK wanted to build  build a mega-cultural center two blocks from the Martin Luther King National Historical Site.

Boo Hoo
