Go To Hell, Dumbos! Go to Hell!

The Reichstag Fire propelled the National Socialists (Nazi party) into power in Germany in 1933. The Dumbos are attempting to repeat history with their "Gound-Zero Mosque" outrage. First, the proposed building near Ground Zero is not even an actual house of worship. It would be a community center — an "M" instead of a "Y." The "M" would contain a prayer room or chapel like many "Y's." Second, many other businesses operate in the same vicinity of Ground Zero: a strip-club, a betting parlor, and others that do not lend themselves to respectful silence. Finally, at another Ground Zero — the Pentagon — the restored portion that was struck by American Airlines Flight 77 contains a chapel that has been in place since 1970. Each week, it hosts a Catholic Mass, Protestant, Episcopal and Hindu services, a Church of Latter-day Saints Bible study, and a Jewish service and Torah study in addition to the Muslim prayers and service. All of these forms of worship occur at different times in the same room at another Gound Zero where more than 180 people died on 9/11/2001. So, the Dumbo-Nazi-Teabaggers can go to Hell (if there is one). In fact, when they open their Dumbo mouths, you can take the dirt road. If this is (fair & balanced) outrage, so be it.
