Okay, it has nothing to do with money or finance, but I have to make just one comment on the Ground Zero Mosque.
No one, outside of a few crazies, wants to legally bar this mosque from being built. They are merely suggesting that a whole lot of people are offended by it. Now, the Left practically traffics in taking offense. It is one of their principal currencies. Indeed, taking offense on behalf of others (who often haven't asked you) is a key tenet of political correctness.
70% of America is offended by this mosque, and yet all Obama, Bloomberg, and others can talk about is its legal right to be built. What about all those poor offended people? What about their feelings?
Answer: feelings only count if you are a member of a permanently aggrieved interest group.
