Why I Oppose the Ground Zero Mosque

 

I do not dispute the constitutional right to build a mosque 2 blocks away from where Islamic terrorists flew two jet planes into the World Trade Center Buildings, killing nearly 3,000 people. I do question the morality and intention of such act. Why there? What would we say if a Nazi organization planned on building an educational center next to the concentration camp at Auschwitz?

 

I am a New Yorker, born and raised in the City. I watched those Towner being built, I watched them burn down to the ground on that infamous day, September 11, 2001. I have customers and friends who battled that day, risking their own lives to save others. I organized fund raisers to help families who lost loved ones. Friends of mine who were there that day told me, with tears in their eyes, as they watch their coworkers jump to their death from the windows of the towers.

 

Maybe I am too emotional to think rational, but to me, this mosque is an act of provocation, a symbol of triumph for a twisted ideology that considers anyone but Muslim an enemy.

 

This country was founded on principles, one of which is the freedom of religion. Another is the separation of the Church and State. I am not questioning the constitution, only the strategic location and reasoning behind this mosque.

Sad, funny...but true.

 

Did you know that there was a Chrstian Church that was destroyed on 9/11 went the Towers fell and they have been fighting for a permit with the NY Port Authority and so far, cannot get it!!!!!!

 

THEY CANNOT REBUILD THEIR CHURCH, BUT IT'S OK TO BUILD A MOSQUE

 

People don't realize what is going on in this country. Why do we walk on egg shells for certain people??????

Have our liberal politicans lost all of their marbles.

 

The insanity continues! There is a shift in this country that concerns me. It's as if there was a hidden agenda. I go back to my question; why build this mosque there? I can tell you why, it is a symbol of triumph. Now the rhetoric claims that America is the oppressor and that the terrorist attack on 9/11 and other attacks were brought upon by what America has done. Can you believe this!

 

So I ask the Muslims and other immigrants to this country. If America is so horrible, why come here in droves? If you feel oppressed and hate this country, leave. If America is so bad, why build another mosque here? There are over 1200 mosques in this country already. Over 1200!

 

The fact is that we (The USA) bends over backwards to be politically correct. We walk on egg shells not to offend “certain” people. Well, I am not afraid to speak my mind... speak the truth. And if anyone labels me because of it, so be it!

I'd wear that label proudly.....

      We are almost into the 4th quarter of 2022, which means that you need to consider your 2022 tax return. Many shops are having a very good year, which means there may be more taxable income at your bottom line.
      What do you do to plan for and minimize paying taxes, while still maintaining a cash reserve?

      As one of the top 10 industries in America, we need to advocate consumer choice in a competitive market, and if we don’t do what is pro-consumer and pro-aftermarket, the dealers will get all the business. I’m with Bill Hanvey, CEO of the AutoCare Association, Paul McCarthy, CEO of the Automotive Aftermarket Suppliers Association (AASA), and Ryan and Andrea Goff, shop owners that went to Washington to speak to their representative and to show support for the Right To Repair initiative.  Have you signed the petition? Go to RepairAct.com so easy to tell your congressperson you support the Right to Repair.  Stay tuned for an important episode that affects ALL OF US.

      Massachusetts helped set the tone two years ago, but it is embroiled in a fight between the OEs and the voters and a judge who has yet to make a ruling. There are recent discussions that 75% to 25% of voters approved overwhelmingly “The right to repair is alluring in its simplicity. In theory, it seems obvious that if you do buy something, you own it, and you should have the freedom to do what you want with it,” said U.S. Rep. Claudia Tenney (R-N.Y.), ranking member of the subcommittee. “The right to repair, if properly designed, can create a world of consumer choice, competitive pricing, and potential cost savings. “However, when this issue is examined in full depth, it becomes substantially less black and white,” she said. “Today, many machines are essentially sophisticated supercomputers… they perform seemingly miraculous feats thanks to delicate and complex electronic components integrated with highly specialized, proprietary software. Even with all the possible tools and resources at one’s disposal, attempting to sell, fix, or modify products with electronic components could lead to disastrous results, such as product failure or, even worse, serious injury to the consumer. In addition, these alterations can put the privacy and security of the user at risk.” To industry: Do not abandon your interest in this initiative. Access to data is critical for the survival of our industry. This is anti-consumer because there isn’t enough bays or technicians in the dealer network to service the repair and maintenance of our car park. It is also pro-consumer as it creates competition. What can we do? Right to repair needs to be on 20 and networking group agendas. We must speak to our legislators If you own a shop, you must make an appointment with your local congressperson's office and see your congressperson in person. Don’t be nervous to share with your customers- we are at the tip of the iceberg By 2020- 4% had advanced connectivity that allowed for remote diagnostics. By 2025 almost every new vehicle will have that advanced connectivity Right to Repair Info Graphic download https://bit.ly/3BOotBI Right to Repair Media Kit for Graphics and postcards. https://bit.ly/3eZOi8Z

      It appears that the economy is not out of the woods yet, with inflation and the Feds looking to raise interest rates more. 
      While gas prices are down (at least for now), there are other economic factors in play here that may affect your customer's wallet.
      So, is it time to tighten your belt a bit and squirrel away cash for a rainy day?
