    Unfortunately, that has been obvious for quite some time. At least as far as politics go anyway. I must admit I've never understood how very intelligent people, allow themselves to be so easily manipulated by political and media propaganda. But then, prior to the rise of the Nazi's, I believe Germany was the most advanced and educated population on the planet.

    What is the definition of "NAZI?"

    What was the first thing the NAZI's did in their rise to power??

    so what happened when the nazis rose to power? people's brains drained and their IQ plummeted and their technology regressed? did clocks actually run backwards? cars turned into carraiges? all in just a few years time span?

    just because they were duped by a smooth-talking charlatan?

    as scooby doo would say:

    ruh roh, reer in rouble now. resident robama rs roo ruch rike ritler!

    how do you keep coming up with this stuff??!!?

    earlier i thought you understood this. but the bold quote above shows you are in lock step with your O man. clueless with what main stream america feels.
    Easy big guy, no need to get your hackles up. It is NOT clear that many conservatives understand the constitutional right issue here. Not at all.

    And Obama, like it or not, is right in step with the majority of Americans when he said legally, they have every right, and as chief executive, who is charged with carrying out and defending the Constitution, he must defend that right.

    BTW, it came out today that one of these buildings has BEEN serving as a mosque for quite some time since 9-11, and there are also strip clubs already smearing this "hallowed ground". How do we address those issues?

    Naomi Wolfe addresses this precisely in her book, "The End of America".
    I highly recommend it.
    I would think it could serve as a manual for the tea party even.

    Point taken. I still think they're insensitive, and as such, should be immediately moved to Franklin, Pa. All of the damn things!

    You did not answer the questions and I am not surprised.

    What is so difficult to understand in the reference? The point David, is that Nazis got elected by duping enough voters, right wingers I might add, in what was at the time a democracy with a highly technically advanced and educated population. They did it first and foremost by separating the population and creating mass hysteria around race and fear. Sound famiiar? It should be. The right wing in America has adopted the same tactics, escalating further and further each year since about 1988. So far they have been extremely successful at duping the American public, or at least a large enough percentage (about 30%) to implement THEIR agenda.
