Actually, that is a little backwards. She said it is a NY issue. Which it is. But what she actually said was, "There is no question there is a concerted effort to make this a political issue by some. And I join those who have called for looking into how is this opposition to the mosque being funded."

So basically she wants to investigate those that are against the building of the mosque. Big Brother intrusion at its finest. You speak put, we will look into you, and, if we find anything, we can use the Patriot Act and the Enemy Belligerent and Detention Act in order to put you away. The mindset of the so-called elitist we have.

New Yorkers shouldn't be so paranoid about a single mosque. I don't think they represent how the rest of Americans feel about religious freedom and tolerance of Islam.

MSNBC's Norah O'Donnell says:

Those who oppose the mosque are acting like the 9/11 terrorists who killed 3000 people
(guess Democrat Senator NV, Harry Reid, is also a terrorists, too)

Nancy Pelosi says dissent is good, but if you are a teapartier then you are a "nazi" for your disagreement with her philosophy.

Just another reason to vote out all congressional democrats to OUST Nancy Pelosi from her Speakership.

EVERY SINGLE SOLITARY DEMOCRAT must go in the next election. Can't take the chance that Pelosi will retain her seat.

Watch Obama aggressively sell out America to fulfill Shariah Law in America. Why does Obama claim to support our constitution only when he wants to protect the very people who defend those who attacked us, yet has waged an attack on the liberties of American citizens??!! It's almost as if Obama is NOT a US Citizen! All progressives and socialists are Terrorist defenders.

Search: Taliban stone couple
Accused of adultery, a 20-year-old woman and her 28-year-old lover were stoned to death in Kunduz province in northern Afghanistan on Sunday. Amnesty International said it was the first confirmed stoning in Afghanistan since the fall of Taliban rule in the 2001. BUT NOT A WORD FROM THE LOONS OR BLEEDING HEARTS…………..WELL AT LEAST THEY DIDN’T GET WATER BOARDED.

Gotta love those peace loving people that go to prayers 5 times a day.

Pelosi just can't get it through her head, that most people disagree with her.
The liberal elitist left remains clueless regarding the wishes of real americans.
Even the NYC blue democrats disagree with her.
Yet they scramble the black helicopters and try to deflect attention from what they are doing and try to ridicule those that disagree with them.

It's not working

I don't think people would react periord if they chose someplace else to build their Mosque.

But to build it right close to where their parishners distroyed the Twin Towers building that is a strong message being shoved down someone throat. And especially to those who gave their lives!

Also when is it right to hide behind freedom of religion when your very religion has distroyed? I really don't think there would be anything said if they chose to build it someplace else.

I could save her alot of time and money. I think the idea sucks and my opinion is free of charge. Anyone who agrees with me, that's free too. There is no funding.

However, speaking of funding, just who is paying for this mosque anyway? That might be something to look into, but of course Pelosi won't touch that one.

You mean two intelligent men that have a full understanding of the 1rst ammendment of the constitution, protecting the rights of all to religious freedoms?

I agree it may not be the most thoughtful idea to do it close, but it still is two and a half blocks away, and you are smart enough to know that if you start to chip away at the basic fundamentals of our constitution, the end could be very scary.

Then if there is trouble and civil unrest the muslims will have no one to blame but themselves.
