'Ground Zero Mosque' Imam: America Killed More Innocents Than Al Qaeda - Fox News

The controversial imam at the center of the debate over the construction of a mosque near Ground Zero says his goal is to create coalitions across the religious divide, but during a 2005 conference in Australia, he said America may be worse than Al Qaeda. "We tend to forget, in the West, that the United States has more Muslim blood on its hands than Al Qaeda has on its hands of innocent non-Muslims," said Imam Fiesal Abdul Rauf...

Why are so many people in their 20s taking so long to grow up? - NDTV

It's happening all over, in all sorts of families, not just young people moving back home but also young people taking longer to reach adulthood overall. It's a development that predates the current economic doldrums, and no one knows yet what the impact will be -- on the prospects of the young men and women; on the parents on whom so many of them depend; on society, built on the expectation of an orderly progression in which kids finish school, grow up, start careers, make a family and eventually retire to live on pensions supported by the next crop of kids who finish school, grow up, start careers, make a family and on and on. The traditional cycle seems to have gone off course, as young people remain un­tethered to romantic partners or to permanent homes, going back to school for lack of better options, traveling, avoiding commitments, competing ferociously for unpaid internships or temporary (and often grueling) Teach for America jobs, forestalling the beginning of adult life.

Oh Crap...My Two Cents....

I have been watching a number of shows dealing with this topic for the past few weeks and have read a number of articles none of these shows or articles hits on the relevant point. This is a generation of the some of the most emotionally immature, intellectually vacant and just plain laziest young fucks in human history.

Working at a university and witnessing countless other examples I have never seen so many examples of young adults so ridiculously dependent on their parents, unable to master some of the simpler aspects of life and completely devoid of basic common fucking sense. (Time Mag 2005 article: The percentage of 26-year-olds living with their parents has nearly doubled since 1970, from 11% to 20%.
This is nuts! Many of these kids are being raised by parents who can’t let go. Many of these parents feel some sense of guilt so they sacrifice their own livelihood and financial stability to coddle a bunch of worthless people and unfortunately society at large will pay for the fact that these parents simply refuse to allow these kids to grow the fuck up and they will one day be cast out for us to deal with.

Older generations forced kids to take responsibility at an early age, they had chores, many had jobs at an early age, and many had the concept of saving money and not spending it on ridiculous bullshit.
For many of these young adults a basic work ethic is lacking and that can’t come from anywhere else but these idiot parents allowing them to grow up to be disrespectful dolts on the job. These young people need to be told every damn thing and even the most menial task is met with resistance.

The parents have refused to teach these kids respect. Respect not only for the parents, but for themselves and the world around them.
I drive around campus and kids will walk right in the middle of the road and dare you to hit them. You see these kids driving and texting (shit infuriates me) almost running people off the road, dumping trash on the ground with no regard for the environment around them, rude behavior, boorish and abrasive and these articles and TV segments wonder why kids are not growing up?

I posted links about the graduation rate of black males; I posted another link about how more young adults today are diagnosed as clinically depressed.
So young adults are dumber then ever before, eating more than ever before, less likely to be physically active than ever before more socially retarded than ever before… this is not rocket science.

A paragraph later in the article…

Nor do parents expect their children to grow up right away -- and they might not even want them to. Parents might regret having themselves jumped into marriage or a career and hope for more considered choices for their children. Or they might want to hold on to a reassuring connection with their children as the kids leave home. If they were "helicopter parents" -- a term that describes heavily invested parents who hover over their children, swooping down to take charge and solve problems at a moment's notice -- they might keep hovering and problem-solving long past the time when their children should be solving problems on their own. This might, in a strange way, be part of what keeps their grown children in the limbo between adolescence and adulthood. It can be hard sometimes to tease out to what extent a child doesn't quite want to grow up and to what extent a parent doesn't quite want to let go.
Whether it is out of fear or guilt or something else this hovering sort of parenting is creating a generation of useless children and young adults and the result…? This social liberalism and socialized state where a generation of these young adults advocates the state providing every damn thing for them, the very people who vote in people like Barack Obama and every other liberal Democrat.

Ok..OK I’m in a crappy mood and I just had to blame something on liberals….sue me! I'm in a slightly ranting mood today :-)

Schlock Poll: Jersey Shore Does More Harm Than Good - Legal Insurrection

I can't believe they actually polled this:
It appears a majority of New Jersey residents agree with Gov. Chris Christie: The hit MTV reality show "Jersey Shore" is doing more harm than good to the Garden State.

According to the new poll from Quinnipiac University, 54 percent of New Jersey voters say the show is bad for the state's image. It's a sentiment that reaches across party lines (Republicans agree 57 – 18 percent while Democrats agree 52 – 22 percent) and gender division (men say the show is bad for the state 51 – 25 percent and women agree 57 – 15 percent).
"I am most interested in the 46 percent who do not agree or are unsure that the show is bad for the image of New Jersey. Does that say more about the 46 percent, or more about the image of New Jersey?"
Ya think this has anything to do with why young adults are so dumb? Jersey Shore is one of the most watched shows on TV. Do you have any idea how devoid of brain cells you must have to actually watch this idiot fucking show. Idiocracy clearly at work here.

Tennessee Football Coach Says He Was Fired For Recording Anti-Obama Song - Michelle Malkin

A Tennessee middle school football coach is looking to the future after his termination for alleged political incorrectness.

Twenty-six-year-old Bryan Glover is a Christian who co-wrote a song called “When You’re Holding a Hammer, Everything Looks Like a Nail,” which takes a dig at the current administration and what he believes to be the wrong moves for the U.S. He sent a link to his song to everyone in his personal e-mail inbox, which included parents from Grassland Middle School, where he coached football.

“An hour-and-a-half after sending out the e-mail, I got the phone call from the head coach saying that he had had complaints from parents; he was told to fire me,” the former coach accounts.

He notes that he was surprised by the allegations against him.

“When the coach first called me, he said his phone was blown up with parents saying that I was being politically incorrect — quote, unquote — if you will, and that some of them were even reading into racial overtones in the song,” Glover explains.

But he points out that the lyrics make no direct or indirect reference to race.

From Hanoi Jane to Imam Obama - The American Spectator

The Ground Zero Mosque has now become the values issue of the 2010 campaign. The party of Hanoi Jane has been updated -- but, importantly, not replaced -- with the party of (as Rush Limbaugh chortles) Imam Obama.

And there's more to this than just the values issue of the Mosque. Much more.

What made the image of Hanoi Jane or the blindfolded American hostages in Iran or the Dukakis veto of the Pledge of Allegiance so powerful with voters was not simply the "values issues" each came to personify.

Each was tied directly to the economy and the economic issues of the day.

Why? Because each image communicated to voters bad judgment.

President's socialist takeover must be stopped - Washington Times

President Obama has engaged in numerous high crimes and misdemeanors. The Democratic majority in Congress is in peril as Americans reject his agenda. Yet more must be done: Mr. Obama should be impeached.

He is slowly - piece by painful piece - erecting a socialist dictatorship. We are not there - yet. But he is putting America on that dangerous path. He is undermining our constitutional system of checks and balances; subverting democratic procedures and the rule of law; presiding over a corrupt, gangster regime; and assaulting the very pillars of traditional capitalism. Like Venezuela's leftist strongman, Hugo Chavez, Mr. Obama is bent on imposing a revolution from above - one that is polarizing America along racial, political and ideological lines. Mr. Obama is the most divisive president since Richard Nixon. His policies are Balkanizing the country. It's time for him to go.

The Real Radio Hatemongers - Media Research Center
Left-Wing Radio Hosts' Track Record of Vile and Vicious Rhetoric

The so-called “news” media have spent much of the past two decades demonizing the rhetoric of conservative radio talk show hosts as mean-spirited, divisive or a menace to civil discourse. But these same journalists — who gleefully castigate Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Mark Levin and other conservatives — are silent about the vile and vicious rhetoric that spews from the Left’s leading radio talk show hosts.

Since late 2007, the Media Research Center has collected numerous examples of the outrageousness of left-wing radio hosts. And, unlike the Left — which attempted to smear Rush Limbaugh with phony quotes — readers can find an audio or video of every one of these quotes posted at our Web site: www.MRC.org.

Among the lowlights:

■ Conservatives Want to Kill Barack Obama: “I really think there are conservative broadcasters in this country who would love to see Obama taken out.” (Ed Schultz)

■ Conservatives Are Terrorists: “Do you not understand that the people you hold up as heroes bombed your goddamn country? Do you not understand that Glenn Beck and Sean Hannity and Rush Limbaugh and Bill O’Reilly are as complicit of the September 11, 2001 terror attack as any one of the dumbass 15 who came from Saudi Arabia?” (Mike Malloy)

■ Conservatives Want You to Die: “If, in fact, the GOP doesn’t like any form of health care reform, what do we do with those 40 to 60 million uninsured?...When they show up in the emergency room, just shoot ‘em! Kill them!...Do we have enough body bags? I don’t know.” (Montel Williams)

■ Conservative Congresswoman Would Have Liked the Holocaust: “[Representative Michele Bachmann is] a hatemonger. She’s the type of person that would have gladly rounded up the Jews in Germany and shipped them off to death camps....This is an evil bitch from Hell.” (Mike Malloy)

■ Dick Cheney Eats Babies: “Cheney, by the way, looks very ruddy. I couldn’t get over that. Like, he must have feasted on a Jewish baby, or a Muslim baby. He must have sent his people out to get one and bring it back so he could drink its blood.” (Mike Malloy)

■ Dick Cheney Should Die: “He is an enemy of the country, in my opinion. Dick Cheney is an enemy of the country....Lord, take him to the Promised Land, will you? See, I don’t even wish the guy goes to Hell, I just want to get him the hell out of here.” (Ed Schultz)

■ Rush Limbaugh Should Die: “I’m waiting for the day when I pick up the newspaper or click on the Internet and find that he’s choked to death on his own throat fat, or a great big wad of saliva or something, whatever. Go away, Limbaugh, you make me sick.” (Mike Malloy)

■ Michele Bachmann Should Die: “So, Michele, slit your wrist! Go ahead! I mean, you know, why not? I mean, if you want to — or, you know, do us all a better thing. Move that knife up about two feet. I mean, start right at the collarbone.” (Montel Williams)

If the establishment media were really interested in cleansing the airwaves of hateful rhetoric, they would not confine their criticism to conservative hosts. Instead, they would — and they must — make an equal effort to expose the nastiness that runs rampant on left-wing talk radio. Unless and until they do, they are participating in an act of journalistic hypocrisy.
