Goombah America

—Face of Muslims in America, from KUED, University of Utah. The words beneath the flag placard say "SUPPORT OPERATION IRAQI FREEDOM." We certainly don't want these obvious terrorists building a place of worship anywhere in New York City.

Wow, reading your blog, it's clear that you're an incredibly hateful unhappy person.


Wow, am I that transparent? But you're right: I do hate happy anonymous people.
Just pulling your chain, man. And though I'm sorry you feel that way, your comments are always welcome here. But I see The Goombah as a very, very small impediment to the takeover of our Country by the loud—and growing number of—fearmongers who advocate democracy by the dollar and quote the foundering fathers in support of intolerance. Perhaps you confuse my anger with hate. I hope so. Because I am angry.
Then again, I do hate stupid. And I think that most of the true believers on the ultra-right (and ultra-left) are sadly lacking in critical thinking skills—i.e. stupid. And the fact that nearly two-hundred years after the Enlightenment superstition and religious bigotry are making a strong comeback in the nation that first opposed them makes me—at times—unhappy. But I wouldn’t have started this blog if I didn’t think that bigotry and the corporate oligarchy which supports it could be defeated.
And that makes me very happy.
