You have got to be kidding me???????

You got to hand it to them, they definately have some nerve. To me its like calling our bluff. Lets take out the big stick and stir the pot some more. Then lets get the money from state to fund the building of a church!! Isn't there suppose to be some kind of seperation here???? They said part of the money would go to help Vets, they did not say which vets. Though I suppose they dont have many vets........BOOOM.:huh:

But the project likely doesn’t qualify for a grant in the first place. Specifically, the grant criteria mandate a demonstration of a project’s financial feasibility, based on benchmarks set by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). The government will help complete development projects—but it does not provide seed capital. And in their last public financial statement, Park51 was found to have less than $20,000 in the bank for a project with a slated cost of $100 million.

Nice try. :crazy:
