Based on your response, I'm guessing I asked you a question that you really don't want to answer.
Oh, crap. We don't need this kind of nonsense in a President. There's real work to be done.
New York City Mayor Rudolph Giuliani recently cut city funding to a city museum because of an offensive exhibit. Giuliani withheld $7 million in funds from the Brooklyn Museum of Art because of a painting that featured a black Virgin Mary covered with elephant dung and pornographic cutouts. The museum would not receive its money unless the exhibit was pulled.
The painting, entitled "Holy Virgin Mary," is just the highlight of the museum's risqu� new exhibit. Among the other displays in the appropriately-titled "Sensation" were bisected pigs and cows preserved in formaldehyde and castrated male dummies.
Giuliani withheld the museum's annual subsidy - about one-third its yearly income - on the grounds that it could not charge admission in a city-owned building. The U.S. Senate followed suit and pulled $500,000 of federal funds from the museum. The Senate could keep its money because the U.S. Supreme Court ruled last year that government could hold a "decency standard" in funding the arts.
It seems they want to avoid another President who knows what he seeks for the US, and who will not sacrifice American interests to placate arrogant and dictatorial foreign leaders who want to put the US in its place. Haven't they ever heard of Ronald Reagan? (He was also in all the papers, and he has a track record of success that Carter could not even dream about.)
Did I miss anything?
Did you sleep thru 9/11
Yes, the taxpayer funded Brooklyn Museum had an exhibit of a picture of Madonna covered with elephant dung.
Rudy objected to the taxpayer funding such so called art.
No different than the garbage exhibited by Mapplethorpe.
You are suggesting that Rudy should have stayed trapped in the building that collapsed around him.
Sound a lot like Joy Behar who said that GHWBush was a coward for not going down with his plane because the other aviator died in the crash.
And by the way, your JCWatts is supporting McCain for pres. Why not add him to your tagline! Or are you hoping for a Watts presidency?
Your lies are unworthy of a reply.
Don't bother posting to me. Until you've sought psychiatric attention.
Oh, I forget the rules which apply to everyone else do NOT apply to YOU. Like the Red Queen words mean what you WANT them to mean. To hell with the dictionary.
And you probably wonder why no one pays any attention to what you believe or want.
You really should have that obsessive compulsive disorder looked into, for your own good, IMO.
