Shame

Representative Peter King (R-Long Island) has opened up his dog & pony show 'hearing' on the threat of homegrown Islamic terrorism. The threat of homegrown terrorism is real, however considering they just arrested the neo-nazi who planted a bomb at a MLK Day parade in Spokane (which fortunately didn't go off), it'd make sense that King open his inquisition to the radical right as well. Don't hold your breath, though.

(Separately, thank you mom and dad for getting us the hell out of Long Island).

  1. This will be a tempest in a teapot so long as Americans recognize that Muslim neighbors they live alongside are and have been peaceful, long-biding people. I can't tell you how many Muslim students I have taught have been the model students and citizens.

    Or better yet:

    "...the Government of the United States, which gives to bigotry no sanction, to persecution no assistance, requires only that they who live under its protection should demean themselves as good citizens..."

  2. Nice work. I came across your blog while “blog surfing” using the Next Blog button on the blue Nav Bar located at the top of my blogger.com site. I frequently just travel around looking for other blogs which exist on the Internet, and the various, creative ways in which people express themselves. Thanks for sharing.
