Given Power, House Republicans Go Mosque Silent

Not one single bill has been written by any member of either house of Congress to do anything to stop any mosque anywhere from being built. I don’t have a problem with that. I wonder how the Tea Party zealots feel about it, though. [...]

Thad McCotter Strikes Moderate Tone on Mosques in America

On August 20, Representative Thaddeus McCotter of Michigan called in to the Dennis Miller radio show to explain his stance on the building of a mosque in Manhattan. Here’s what he said:

Dennis Miller: Well then, for the first time, utter to people what you make of the mosque at ground zero.

Thad McCotter: Well, [...]

Cordoba House Must Be Sensitive To Victims’ Families!

Those who are trying to ban the Cordoba House are not being sensitive to the feelings of Julia Rodriguez, a sister of a September 11 victim. Maybe they should relocate their protests to a more appropriate subject. [...]

Catholic Archbishop Glad to Help Shove Mosque out of His Territory

The Catholic Archbishop of New York says he’d be glad to help Muslim Americans move their things out of Manhattan, relocating a mosque out of his territory. How neighborly. Just as neighborly as when he nixed the erection of a mosque in Staten Island, also his territory.

This fight is about a squabble between religions, [...]

Today, we ought to remember that in 1492, Columbus wasn’t the only one sailing the ocean blue. Jews were doing it too – looking for a new home, on pain of death. [...]

Memo to Sarah Palin on Religious Intolerance and the “Mosque”

Dear Sarah Palin:

You have repeatedly issued declarations online asking that “Peaceful New Yorkers, pls refute the Ground Zero mosque plan” and that New York issue “a decision not to allow the building of a mosque.”

Let’s make a quick check of the facts:

1. It’s not “a mosque.” The Cordoba Center will be an [...]

Tea Party Express Chair Comes Out Swinging Against the 1st Amendment

Tea Party Express Chairman Mark Williams has taken to posing for speeches in front of a big enlarged document that starts with the words “We The People.” He might want to try turning around and reading the rest of the words on that document before he opens his mouth again.

Reaction has been strong to [...]

The Other Shoe: Massive Surveillance Network in Manhattan

Somebody drove an SUV up slightly onto a curb in New York City over the weekend, tried to light it on fire, and failed.

Maybe the person doing this was trying to scare people (“terrorism” is our modern word for “trying to scare people”). Maybe he was deranged. Maybe he was a prankster. We don’t [...]

Under Digital TV, PBS Lost in 4 Major Cities. Progress?

As I’ve told you, here in the center of Columbus, Ohio, the 15th largest city in the nation, I cannot receive an over-the-air digital TV signal for PBS, although I was able to obtain an analog PBS signal in the same spot.

I’m not alone.
