Did America fall with the towers?

Signed with of a pastor,
mom of a first responder.

The Widow's Uniform is not the soldier-man's disgrace.
For it's Tommy this, an' Tommy that, an' "Chuck him out, the brute!"
But it's "Saviour of 'is country" when the guns begin to shoot;
An' it's Tommy this, an' Tommy that, an' anything you please;
An' Tommy ain't a bloomin' fool -- you bet that Tommy sees!

I agree, Mayor Bloomberg's decision is appalling and repulsive in every way. Just as appalling as when he encouraged the building of the Ground Zero Mosque and basing his argument on 'freedom of religion'.

Bloomberg is the main reason why I fled NYC last Dec 2011, fed up with him and with providing his vulgar and obnoxious constituients tax dollars so they could afford the luxury of Nanny-Bullying me to death.

Question is with regard to permitting clergyfolk, the how can we get around the argument made by so many during the Ground Zero Mosque that this is NYC-thing only and that we should keep our noses out of it, as well as, the argument made by so many that this is democracy, there must be separation of church and state?

Correction: I fled Dec 2010 (after twenty one years of living in the Rotted Apple)

Number Six, above, had the correct response.
It's amazing how the "learned" have the same response today after all of their "enlightenment", as did their Victorian predecessors, whom they have saved us from.
Selfishness knows no age!

syn said: "how can we get around ... the argument made by so many that this is democracy, there must be separation of church and state?"

Last night on Fox, Fred Thompson said concerning that question regarding the 9/11 memorial, (paraphrase), "fine, let's get the state out of it."

The ruling class is supposed the be the people and not a group who perpetuate themselves as rulers. The Tea Party speaks for We the People.

Bloomberg is a fool. It's too bad for New York City though. I ask myself, How do we get so many fools in office? Oh yeah, we vote them in don't we?

Once again Bloomberg gives full evidence on why he's unfit to be NYC's mayor, let alone hold any higher political office.

Kipling was probably the person who understood it best.

The Sons of Mary seldom bother, for they have inherited that good part; But the Sons of Martha favour their Mother of the careful soul and the troubled heart. And because she lost her temper once, and because she was rude to the Lord her Guest, Her Sons must wait upon Mary's Sons, world without end, reprieve, or rest.

....
They do not preach that their God will rouse them
a little before the nuts work loose.
They do not teach that His Pity allows them
to drop their job when they dam'-well choose.
As in the thronged and the lighted ways,
so in the dark and the desert they stand,
Wary and watchful all their days
that their brethren's days may be long in the land.

.....

And the Sons of Mary smile and are blessed
-- they know the Angels are on their side.
They know in them is the Grace confessed,
and for them are the Mercies multiplied.
They sit at the Feet -- they hear the Word
-- they see how truly the Promise runs.
They have cast their burden upon the Lord,
and -- the Lord He lays it on Martha's Sons!

I was going to mention Kipling too, but 'Tommy':

"O it's Tommy this, an' Tommy that, an' "Tommy, go away";
But it's "Thank you, Mister Atkins", when the band begins to play"

Of course having mentioned Sarah Palin as mamma grizzly, "The Female of the Species" is also appropriate.

For it's Tommy this, an' Tommy that, an' "Chuck him out, the brute!"
But it's "Saviour of 'is country" when the guns begin to shoot;
An' it's Tommy this, an' Tommy that, an' anything you please;
An' Tommy ain't a bloomin' fool -- you bet that Tommy sees!

Rudyard Kipling, 1890

And nowadays, whether Tommy's a soldier, sailor, fireman or policeman, Tommy also votes.

This is how an elitist political technocrat ... a card-carrying member of the Best and Brightest, at least in his own mind ... thinks.

Oh, but Bloomin' sure loves having those first responders around tonight!

I have a suggestion ... for this ceremony, they can start with replacing Bloomin' with Rudy as the host ... then replace the glitterati with those for whom this day is more than just another photo-op-and-statement session ...

... including those who were the first responders to the dire spiritual needs on that day, who -- no matter what name they call their Creator -- backed their beliefs about His endowment of life and liberty to ALL men with their lives and sacred honor.

As for the GZ mosque ... this is one time I am glad that the trade unions are strong enough to be gatekeepers ... I mean, how is it going to get built in NYC without them?

Sissy, right now I am just thinking about how God heard my prayers when I prayed for him to spare you in Massachusetts and Dan Riehl in New Jersey from Hurricane Irene.

Thanks to God, you and Dan survived that awful tempest sent by Satan.
