I have to admit that I am fascinated with the whole "Mosque" at Ground Zero brouhaha. I live in NY and had a daughter and nephew working in Mid-Town on that horrible day. I realize the pain and helplessness of not knowing if I would ever see my daughter again. It was one of the worst days I have lived through.
What fascinates me is how divided we are on this issue. People I have come to call friends due to shared political ideology are so divided on this topic. People I have come to know on blogs in the last 10 years, who have helped me live through the Bush years and the fiasco of the last Presidential Primary. Without them, I don't know how I would have gotten through. These are the same people who saw right through Obama and realized the empty victory of finally having a Democrat in the White House. They are loving,intelligent, savvy, kind, hardworking people from all walks of life worried about the down spiral of America. I may not have ever met them in person, but I know them better than I know my next door neighbor. And, they are divided right down the middle on this issue.
When Hillary had the audacity to run for President, I lost many of my Democratic friends to Obama frenzy. I understand that. And, as far as this division goes, I kind of feel like I don't have a horse in this race. I really don't care if the Center is built or not.
What I do care about is "live and let live". Peace. Reaching out to understand others. All ground is hallowed ground and religion has been the root of too many wars.
I love you, my brothers and sisters of the mighty blogs. I just don't understand the uproar over this. However, I respect you for your opinion and just hope this whole damn thing gets settled soon.
Although THIS pisses me off royally. H/T to Hecate for the link

On the way to work this morning, I heard a clip of Obama on NPR congratulating himself in a speech at Ford Motor Company for his bailout of the auto industry. Seems Ford is putting on new employees and Ozero is taking the credit for job creation linked directly to his bailout.
Correct me if I am wrong, but isn't it a fact that Ford did NOT take any of the bailout funds?
Ahh, yes, I am not crazy. With a little digging I found this: "Desperate To Claim Economic Victory, Obama visits Ford Plant To Tout Success He Had Nothing To Do With."
