C-mon, say it, "B-a-a-a-a-a-h-h--h-h-h-h -h-h, etc".
USAID has provided computers and Internet access for imams and mosques in countries such as Mali and Tajikstan to assist them in championing USAID development activities in there areas...

The bullshit of the State department sending hundreds of millions of dollars to save mosques, is a right wing Faux news farce, sheep.

By the way, this takes care of all the wingnut sites your visited to link me to more of your insane lunatic fringe areas.

Thanks.

You have not real proof of your bullshit claim...

I have proof that you are full of shit...

If you think some wayward right wing propaganda sites are proof, then your are sadly mistaken...They are as I said, bullshit.

USAID is for real and that is what they do overseas. There is no milions of tax dollars going to just rebuild mosques. THAT IS A LIE.

Here's part of that link: We don’t know how much USAID spent in 2010 for projects that benefit mosques. The agency says it obligated $18.8 billion for the fiscal year for all projects The official we contacted said that other mosques that have benefited from USAID money over the years were funded for "secular purposes, such as restoring historic and cultural sites and structures or reducing social conflict by creating opportunities for at-risk youth to channel their energies into productive endeavors.… In addition, faith-based organizations and religious groups are valued partners in USAID’s humanitarian relief and development work."

Say "baaaahhhhh...".

The aid goes to more than just mosques...
The article said that.

If you want to run around and wave your arms frantically while stomping your feet and scream this from the top of your lungs, that's fine...It won't change the fact that your "millions of dollars to save mosques" is bullshit...

Ya gotta man up within these 4 years and stop this fkn blubbering about our president...

Mittens lost this one for good reason. He was an egotistical, sociopathic, pretentious bobblehead and would have sold this country to the highest bidder as soon as he took the oath...

No that's not why Romney lost. He lost because of the lies and the fraudlent claims the Obama administration painted him to be.

Obama didn't win on his success. The next four years won't be successful either. It will be Obama using climate change, immigration, health care and gun laws to try and bring down the Republican party.

That's your opinion.

Your opinion is not shared by the majority of this nation. If that is not painfully obvious by now, then continue to live with your head in the sand for the next four years.

Bring down the republicans???!!??

LOL!!! They didn't need ANY help with that, sport.

Detroit. According to a new report, 47 percent of Detroiters are ”functionally illiterate.” The alarming new statistics were released by the Detroit Regional Workforce Fund on Wednesday.

http://detroit.cbslocal.com/2011/05/04/report...

Chicago. Seventy-nine percent of the 8th graders in the Chicago Public Schools are not grade-level proficient in reading, according to the U.S. Department of Education, and 80 percent are not grade-level proficient in math.

http://cnsnews.com/news/article/us-department...

Cleveland. Cleveland's schools experienced academic, financial, and structural crises in the mid-2000s. In 2004 the high school graduation rate was only 40.8 percent, while only 11.3 percent of residents achieved a college degree. Worsening the situation, the Cleveland Municipal School District had a $36 million operating deficit; in order to rectify the shortfall, the board of education planned to close a number of schools and lay-off part of the workforce for the 2005–2006 school year. In June 2002, prompted by the collapse of a school gym roof, a $1.5 billion Facilities Plan was approved to replace or renovate each school in the district within 10-12 years.

Los Angeles. Los Angeles faces unique education challenges. Los Angeles is home to 1.6 million students. In too many LA schools, graduation rates are below 50% and alarming numbers of graduates are not prepared to succeed after high school. A high-quality education improves opportunities for students in Los Angeles. To address Los Angeles’ unique challenges and deliver high-quality education, we need more skilled leaders working in the field of education.
