The U.S. Senate's senior Democrat broke with President Barack Obama on Monday over the proposed Muslim cultural center and mosque in New York City, with Senator Harry Reid saying it should be built elsewhere.
- This is shameful. It is a perfect example of what's wrong with Congress. They have no shame. Reid, involved in a tough election campaign, will say and do whatever it takes to get re-elected. It is why we need to impose voter term limits on him and every other career incumbent. If the people of Nevada know what's good for them, they should remove this slime from office. If he is willing to sell out the Constitution he will continue to sell you out, Nevadans.

In fact, on the very day Bloomberg announced he wanted to run again, the first $50,000 of the grant was transferred to the National Action Network.

NYTimes: The Making of Andrew Cuomo
- Governing in America has become a birthright. If you have money and/or pedigree, you are entitled. This is not why we fought for independence 200 years ago. We are a aristocracy, not a democratic republic.

The figures underscore China's emergence as an economic power that is changing everything from the global balance of military and financial power to how cars are designed. It is already the biggest exporter, auto buyer and steel producer, and its global influence is expanding.
