U.S. Taxpayers Build Mosques. Why?

Everyday I am more amazed at our government. Somebody up there on the pedestal actually voted to take my taxes and give the money to Muslims who want to build or restore Mosques.  Unbelievable, but apparently true.

1.   In 2003 our JUSTICE DEPARTMENT declared that the U.S. Constitution's "Establishment Clause" did not prevent federal funds from going to preserve religious structures - IF THEY HAD CULTURAL IMPORTANCE. They never did figure out just who should decide what religious structure is or isn't culturally important. I wonder if anyone in the Justice Department  is awake?

2.   There are currently over 20 projects being at least partially funded by U.S. FEDERAL FUNDS to construct, renovate, or rehabilitate Mosques around the world. Who is authorizing this?

3.   When was the U.S. Ambassadors Fund For Cultural Preservation established? By whom?

4.   The U.S. Ambassadors Fund For Cultural Preservation (A.F.C.P) is currently funding or planning to fund "heritage preservation" projects in the developing world"  - which is a phrase that hides the financing of Mosques and Mosque related projects. This is not how I want MY taxes spent. How about you. 

5.   Hillary Clinton apparently thinks this is a good way for America to exercise what she calls "soft power".  No, she isn't kidding.

6.   The United States Agency for International Development (U.S.A.I.D.) has spent MILLIONS reconstructing and financing several Mosques in Egypt and Cyprus. Did you vote for that? I didn't.

7.  Why is the U.S. taxpayer funding Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf's trip to the middle east? Exactly who in our government stupidly approved this?

Does ANYBODY in our government realize that WE ARE AT WAR with radical Muslims and several of these radical groups (like the Muslim Brotherhood) are the slickest and most dangerous con-men that America has ever been at war with. Is anyone investigating the Muslims who are receiving this money? 

Apparently not.

We all know that there are serious problems with ou American political system. The federal government and national media have been telling us that we continue to lead the world in just about everything. Unfortunately, we do not. Measuring our status against other nations is difficult as it entails comparison of different attributes and characteristics. Comparisons are, at best, crude.  Surely, if we look, it's clear that America is no longer dominant among the world's communities. 

For decades following the 1929 economic depression, America has enriched foreign industries at the expense of our own. We have subsidized foreign military powers while allowing the depletion of our own. We've defended other nations borders while, at the same time, not defended our own. We've spent trillions of dollars to subsidize unworthy governments, and let our own infrastructure to fall into disrepair. 

The use of our economic power as a diplomatic tool may have been the correct thing to d…

Cruel and Thoughtless . . .

A disheartening situation has hit our family. A cousin, one that we don't know very well, has reached 93 years of age. Most of the Chapman family made it to the mid 80's, but Mary Lou Chapman has managed a few years more. And, she's not gone yet. Mary was unmarried her entire life. She grew up in a good home, was well educated, has always hd a good job, and has enjoyed pretty good health - until just a few years ago. While she is still very much alive, I sometimes speak in the past tense as if she had already died. Mary is either confused or in her own little world now. She began losing some of her sparkle a few years ago. At first it was mild memory loss, and then mild hearing loss, and then drifting in her speech as she lost track of what she wanted to say. Her Doctor said it was a mild dementia coming on with old age, and nothing to worry about yet. A few month's passed by before she began to have problems driving herself to the market and appointments and so forth,…

Mark Turner - Another Look

MARK TURNER.  I'm an interested ex-corporate exec., now retired, and have little to contribute to this. Perhaps you can help? At first I thought Mark's story was so complicated it couldn't be true. I discovered later that  Mark's business may indeed have  generated as much money as he said it did. His story is long and complicated, but regardless of his guilt or innocence, there is definitely  something wrong with the legal process he encountered. Maggie Thornton says his business dealings were honest. I'm not thoroughly convinced, but she may be right.  There is no question that he was improperly sentenced in one court, and deserves an appeal process in another. 

I have received several comments from a blogger named "Anonymous". He (or she) has chosen to remain unknown but clearly has an inside track to information about Mark's problems. I have removed my original speculations from this blog and regret there were so many errors. Sorry folks, my fault…
