The national conversation on the Park 51 Islamic Community Center has taken a turn for the worst. Opponents claim it's too close to the Ground Zero a...
It appears that, for the far right, the import of local opinion and the ability for local communities to make decisions for themselves only applies in communities that agree with the values of the far right.

Dean says he wants American Muslims, whom he says have been treated badly since 9/11, to be welcomed "back into the fold" of American society. How is that to happen?
These days the Republicans may be acting like whack jobs, but too many Democrats are behaving like wimps -- with grave consequences for our economic future.
The angry left is angry with Barack Obama. It's lying on the floor kicking and screaming and holding its breath. Goodness is not being accomplished. Injustice continues sort of unabated.

In a year when Democrats are supposed to be shaking in their boots over the GOP Bogeyman's big gains in November that'll sweep them back into power, it is the Tea Party that Democrats may soon be thanking.

The Founding Fathers never intended for corporations of any ilk (S, 501-C, LLC, etc.) to have the same rights as individuals.
We are all too aware of the right wing echo chamber. A well orchestrated score promoting stereotyped rat a tat answers. How do they do this? The same may be true in on the left as well.
