  1. Slabber, you are totally correct (as usual): This anti-mosque hysteria IS bigotry, and it's the meanest, stupidest political opportunism by the crazies who don't care whether it's fair or makes sense - let alone if it's good for the country. Love your cartoon selections, keep them coming...

  2. The first of the two (the topmost one) is particularly apt!

    It is to weep...........

    "The Citizens of the United States of America have a right to applaud themselves for giving to Mankind examples of an enlarged and liberal policy: a policy worthy of imitation. All possess alike liberty of conscience and immunities of citizenship. It is now no more that toleration is spoken of, as if it was by the indulgence of one class of people that another enjoyed the exercise of their inherent natural rights. For happily 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.

    ...

    May the Children of the Stock of Abraham, who dwell in this land, continue to merit and enjoy the good will of the other Inhabitants; while every one shall sit under his own vine and fig tree, and there shall be none to make him afraid."
    - George Washington (in his letter of reply to the Synagogue in Newport, RI)

  4. to equate muslims with 9-11 is a farce. only morons and the uninformed still deny the overwhelming evidence that it's bush and his government that are responsible for 9-11.
    .
    that said, i agree with anonymous 2010.08.24-6:20pm but that comment applies to all religions.
