It’s just common sense. You don’t build a Shinto Shrine at Pearl Harbor. You don’t build a Nazi Hall of Fame in Jerusalem. You don’t build a Muslim Mosque at Ground Zero, NYC.
Naturally, Obama’s all for it. No doubt he will be there in person, cheering wildly for the grand opening on September 11, 2011 – the ten year Anniversary of the 9-11 World Trade Center controlled demolition.
There’s something obscenely wrong with the Obama administration’s use of US taxpayer funding to build a $100,000,000 shrine dedicated to those who were murdered on 9-11-2001 for the glory of Islam and to the Muslims who killed them.
Hey Obama, bring your shinebox. You can bow to your Lord and Master, the King of Saudi Arabia, and shine his shoes.
Another slap in the face to America. Only in Obama’s America.
65 negatives of world famous photographer Ansel Adams were bought at a garage sale in Fresno, California for only $45.
The photos have been verified as Ansel Adam’s early work, thought to have been lost in a 1937 Yosemite fire, and are now valued at over $200,000,000 [$200 Million]
Ansel Adams is best known for his stunning black and white photography – in particular – his western America landscapes. He passed away in 1984 at the age of 82.
The 6.5 x 8.5 inch glass plate negatives of famous Yosemite landscapes and San Francisco landmarks made an interesting journey from Ansel Adams’ own collection to a Pasadena, Ca. unclaimed storage / warehouse salvage sale and ultimately to a Fresno, Ca. garage sale.
One fortunate man has parlayed a $45 investment into a $200 Million cash cow.
