    re: #138 Gus 802

    You’re forgetting a couple of things. For one, both Feisal Abdul Rauf and his wife, Daisy Kahn, are both American citizens. The other being that thing called the Patriot Act and the IRS which they have to file when doing the financial groundwork. It’s not like they’re going to freelance this whole operation like some mob outfit during the days of prohibition. Everything will be subject to public and governmental scrutiny.

    I’m not implying these two are doing anything illegal. But if in fact this is a community center for New York Muslims is this money
    being funded by New Yorkers? And if it’s coming from elsewhere and it’s an extraordinary amount of money, what is the sales pitch? Why is better to spend $100 million here for a 13 story building when you maybe could build 100 mosques or community centers throughout the US. So yes, I’m not ignoring the fact that some may see this “community center” as something more than a place for new stork Muslims to recreate. I haven’t made up my mind on the efficacy of this community center and an tryin to look at all the facts available.

    And I do note the sensitivity here. But sensitivity has two meanings. One, the proclivity to take offense, and the other the courtesy to avoid giving offense. If one is going to fault others for an excess of the former, it is usually not right to do so in a way that shows one’s own deficiency of the latter.

    Hiya everyone. Busy today so I won’t be chatting on the radio blog today.

    Just wanted to comment on the Aussie Election.

    A hung parliament. the Country split exactly down the middle.

    The good thing is that whatever happens the conservatives are in a win -- win situation. The socialists and power brokers in the various factions within the Labor party are gearing up to have a massive internal blood letting session.

    With parliament in limbo there will be no nutzy legislation passed because the balance of power in the House of Reps is held by a Green and 4 ‘conservative’ but very single issue focused independents. That means that Australia will not go on a spending spree.

    There will be another election within a year as the functions of parliamentary democracy dry up.

    The conservative ‘Mad Monk’ Tony Abbott can only get stronger and that red haired anarchist bitch Gillard can only weaken in that scenario. Given that the NSW State Labour party is due to be completely routed in the approaching State elections and factions within State Labour party in Queensland are already undermining the State Premier 2011 bodes good for an entertaining show. Labor in Australia is set to butcher itself in a bout of civil warfare and the Australian people are going to sit back and enjoy the show.

    :)

    Has anyone read the Park 51 website? It’s really good. I’m looking to make my donation though, and can’t find the “donate” button. It must be on another website -- if anyone can direct me.

    I think all you have to do is stay logged in to keep it open. When I go in under the Blogmocracy I keep getting bumped out by one or other of the other admins.

    That would be cool! And you could be in admin chat to pass messages ~:D

    The odds of even a Labor Party care taker government imploding are shortening very quickly as Labor prepared to kill itself in a feast of blood letting and factional warfare.

    Rock up folks . Grab some popcorn and enjoy the show!

    This from Tim Blair’s site:-
    !

    Tim Blair – Monday, August 23, 10 (06:29 am)

    Welcome to Ausflorida, where it’s always November 7, 2000:
    Australians will have to wait up to 10 days to learn if Julia Gillard or Tony Abbott will be able to form government.
    One million votes remain to be counted, while both major parties seek a deal with independents:
    Julia Gillard is asking that Australians look not to Labor’s recent history but to her personality as the basis for a stable federal government.
    Sure thing, Sybil. Which personality are we talking about? Loyal deputy Julia or stabby Julia? The Julia who wanted to “clear the factions out of the system” or the Julia who relied on them to gain power? Fake Julia? Real Julia? No-notes Julia? Notes Julia? The Julia who wears pearls as a joke or the Julia who doesn’t? Not seeing a lot of stability here myself. On with the bloodfest – having previously slammed Labor’s election campaign under Gillard, Kristina Keneally now blames Kevin Rudd:
    Kevin Rudd’s failure to invest in infrastructure in NSW contributed to voter condemnation of Labor in the state, the Premier, Kristina Keneally, said.
    Kevni’s electorate isn’t so concerned with NSW investment, but voters there were also dismissive:
    The primary vote swing against Labor in Queensland was about 8 per cent. Against Mr Rudd in Griffith, it was closer to 9 per cent.
    And they’re his friends. Back to NSW:
    The former NSW premier Morris Iemma has publicly repudiated Labor’s federal campaign director Karl Bitar, saying if he had a ‘’conscience’’ he would hand his resignation to the Prime Minister, Julia Gillard.

    In a blistering attack on Labor’s five-week campaign, Mr Iemma described it as ‘’the most inept in living memory’’.
    According to an unnamed NSW Labor insider, Gillard’s anti-immigration views were a factor in the government’s collapse:
    One said that entire ethnic communities had abandoned Labor and put it down to three things: the removal of Mandarin-speaking prime minister Kevin Rudd, Labor’s anti-immigration policies and Julia Gillard’s admission that she was an atheist.

    “In our attempt to go after the white bread conservative vote in Lindsay, we have lost entire ethnic communities, our traditional base. It’s a disaster,” the source said.

    “In 25 years, I have not seen people of Chinese background walk past people with Labor how-to-vote cards. As soon as she started talking about too many immigrants, we lost every ethnic vote.”
    They seemed fine with Tony. Blood is promised:
    ‘’They’ll be blood on the walls over this,’’ said one senior Labor source from New South Wales. ‘’We are now headed for a meltdown.’’
    The tense in that last sentence may be inaccurate. Shaun Carney on the carnage:
    The grim portent for Labor lies not in the mere fact of its loss of a parliamentary majority, but the way in which that loss has been inflicted, with many of its own people saying after only three years, ‘’no more’’.
    If they don’t want government, maybe they shouldn’t have it. One seat could be decisive:
    The West Australian seat of Hasluck could hold the keys to The Lodge for either Julia Gillard or Tony Abbott.
    Something to consider during all of this: in 2007, late counting nationwide went to the Coalition.

    ‘The Lodge’ is the official residence of the Prime Minister like of the White House is for the POTUS. Increasingly however Prime Ministers choose to remain ‘at home’ and only use the Lodge for official duties
