    Absolutely aizmang and sickening! The Islamists defile, threaten and spout biased lies about other religions all day long. But if you have the audacity to question the link between the US taxpayer money and a government-supported mosque in Boston, you are immediately slapped with lawsuits by CAIR (Council on American-Islamic Relations) and other low-life quasi legal entities.Here is another example of outrageous behaviour by the US government as it meekly tries to appease 24 Islamist soldiers in the US Marines at Quantico.Last week, military brass — along with representatives from the terror-tied CAIR — dedicated the first Muslim prayer center Mosque for the Marines as a symbol of the military’s “religious tolerance” and “respect” for the faith the enemy uses to attack us. * Where is the ACLU?* Where is the outrage against US taxpayer money spent on promoting religion?* Where are the lawyers who preach separation of relion and government?Shame on the United States Marine Corp. for doing such a disservice to our fighting men by building a Mosque on one of it’s bases. On base, they’re all Marines. There are no Baptists, Catholics, Lutherans, Latter Day Saints, Buddists, Pagans or Muslims. Just Marines. If the Muslim jarheads want a place to worship, let them go off base and spend their own money, not US taxpayer dollars.Take a look at the following excerpts from Paul Sperry’s on the US Goverment’s decision to build Mosques on Marine bases.Quantico has only 24 Muslims on base, so the mosque — the first of its kind in the 230-year history of the Corps — will also serve to introduce and draw other Marines to the faith.Already, plans are in the works to build by 2009 a bigger mosque at the Marine base in Quantico so Muslim service members can have a “proper place” to worship, and one that “honors their religious heritage,” officials say, not realizing that the mosque can also be used by the enemy to build a Fifth Column inside the Marines.The first principle of war is knowing your enemy and what motivates him. The PC-addled Pentagon seems to have forgotten that rule.

    I grew up in Wisconsin, and will never forget the fleieng of being outside in the snow, returning in to a warm house, with fire and the contentement and thankfulness it provided. I think it is different the warming up process, rather than being hot and getting into a/c? Possibly it takes longer to actually warm up? Well, and a fire adds romance to all memories.Christmas lights that sparkle on the snow are the best ever.

    Dear AJ,Thanks for sharing some of the xiietcng things going on in our great city. As former Deputy Commissioner of Commerce for Massachusetts, I am acutely aware of the economic benefits and tourism offerings in and around Boston. With Mayor Menino taking the lead we have become a world competitor. At the same time, Boston has remained a connected community which welcomes diversity and multi-culturalism, embracing differences while acknowledging common ground. Your firm has contributed to this spirit by recognizing the importance of its history and promoting its energy and entrepreneurship. Kudos to you AJ! Keep the Spirit of Boston alive.

    Great post! The ways of traditional atsvrdieing are definitely changing. The complete shift will soon take place with the Madison Ave agencies. Seth Godin talks a lot about this shift in the book Meatball Sundae. The next 2 years will really show the shift in how people get their word out there. For instance, with Hulu now starting to dominate the Web TV arena, the ads on there will continue to become more expensive, but the true measure will be how effective they are compared to taking the social approach!

    zegt:Leuk om het onderwijs erbij te halen. Maar er zit een nisagtigch gat tussen Amerikaanse topuniversiteiten en Nederlandse universiteiten als het gaat om budget. MIT heeft al een groter budget dan alle Nederlandse universiteiten bij elkaar. In het geval van Harvard zelfs 4 tot 5x zoveel inkomsten. Terwijl ze een nisagtigch budget hebben, zijn ze qua aantal studenten goed vergelijkbaar met Nederlandse universiteiten. Deze universiteiten halen veel geld uit het bedrijfsleven, uit Boston, maar ook uit de rest van het land. De basis qua gelden, maar ook de eigen bevolking is veel groter. Hoewel grenzen vervagen, spelen nationale grenzen op het gebied van gelden een belangrijke rol en is taal nog steeds een issue. Wat New York is op financieel gebied, Washington op politiek gebied, is Boston op universitair gebied in de wereld.

    Jaap Deen zegt:Eagerness is wellicht HET grote esvrchil tussen Amerikanen en Nederlanders. Dat ontbrekende killer instinct is helaas vaak een kenmerk van ons volkje (denk aan de WK’s voetbal of de halve wetten die handhaving uiterst lastig maken) en dat speelt ons wellicht ook in deze situatie parten. Maar dat betekent tegelijkertijd dat we, zeker in Amsterdam, een tolerante en open sfeer weten te creebren, die ze op veel plekken in de VS dan weer niet hebben. Tja, elk nadeel heeft z’n voordeel. En zonder nu meteen een bijbelstudie te willen ontketenen, sluit ik toch niet uit dat sommige volken en plaatsen zijn voorbestemd om meer te floreren dan andere.
