You Don’t Have To Like It, You Just Have To Pay For It

It’s bad enough that these slumlord scofflaw Islamists are trying to build a 9/11 victory lap mosque as close to Ground Zero as possible, but now they’re asking American taxpayers, 70% of whom oppose building the mosque near Ground Zero, to help pay for it. What unmitigated gall! Talk about rubbing salt into an open wound, they’re really trying to stick it to the dirty kuffar with this obscene gesture.

Park51 developers apply for $5M federal grant, outraging opponents of mosque near Ground Zero

Developers of a mosque near Ground Zero are fanning a new flame of controversy by applying for a $5 million federal grant reserved for the redevelopment of lower Manhattan.

“I think it’s an insult to the 9/11 families. It’s another smack in the face,” said retired FDNY Deputy Chief Jim Riches, whose 29-year-old son, Jim, a firefighter, was killed on 9/11.

“I think it’s becoming more and more comical,” he said of the latest twist over the proposed 13-story Islamic community center and mosque. “Now we’re going to have to pay for it.”

Sharif El-Gamal, developer of the proposed Park Place project, confirmed his group has applied for the Lower Manhattan Development Corp. grant.

Obamacare Only Looks Worse Upon Further Review: Kevin Hassett

One of the more illuminating remarks during the health-care debate in Congress came when House Speaker Nancy Pelosi told an audience that Democrats would “pass the bill so you can find out what’s in it, away from the fog of controversy.”

That remark captured the truth that, while many Americans have a vague sense that something bad is happening to their health care, few if any understand exactly what the law does.

To fill this vacuum, Representative Kevin Brady of Texas, the top House Republican on the Joint Economic Committee, asked his staff to prepare a study of the law, including a flow chart that illustrates how the major provisions will work.

The result, made public July 28, provides citizens with a preview of the impact the health-care overhaul will have on their lives. It’s a terrifying road map that shows Democrats have launched America on the most reckless policy experiment in its history, the economic equivalent of the Bay of Pigs invasion.

Before discussing what the law means for you, we have to look at what it does to government. That’s where the chart comes in handy. It includes the new fees, bureaucracies and programs and connects them into an organizational chart that accounts for the existing structure. It’s so carefully documented that a line connecting two structures cites the legislative language that created the link.

Well, I for one DO NOT welcome our new health care overlords. Hopefully, if the Republicans can at least take back the House, they can strangle this vile monstrosity to a slow death by withholding funding, assuming it can’t be straight up repealed.

Lion, It’s What’s For Dinner

Phoenix restaurant, Il Vinaio, serves lion burgers for World Cup despite controversy

Will it leave you roaring for more?

A restaurant near Phoenix is hawking a $21 “lion burger” in celebration of the World Cup — despite the controversy the burger is causing.

Il Vinaio restaurant in downtown Mesa has already received a bomb threat and more than 250 angry e-mails from animal rights groups across the country.

“We thought that since the World Cup was in Africa … that the lion burger might be interesting for some of our more adventurous customers,” said owner Cameron Selogie.

The lions, he added, were raised at a free-range farm in Illinois that is regulated by the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

“Most of them, when we tell them the facts, that this is farm-raised and it doesn’t hurt the endangered animals, seem pretty reasonable,” Selogie said of the customers.

Il Vinaio ordered 10 pounds of lion meat and mixed it with ground beef. The burger comes with spicy homemade chips and roasted corn on the cob.

The restaurant said it plans to serve 30 burgers by Thursday. Lion meat is uncommon but not illegal, said a spokesman for the Agriculture Department.

The “animal rights activists” really need to get over their bad old hypocritical selves. It’s called a food chain and it pays to be at the top of it. Lions are large carnivores, think of all the thousands of poor little feed animals’ lives that these people are saving by eating the lions.

/hmmm, I wonder if they taste like chicken?
