NY Daily News (ht: Booman):
Stop the Islamization of America was included in the civil rights organization’s annual roundup of extremist groups – a rogue’s gallery that includes everything from the Ku Klux Klan to white supremacists and Nazis.
Geller’s group was one of the most vocal opponents of the proposed Islamic Center near Ground Zero.
The group was also behind ads that were placed on city buses urging Muslims to leave “the falsity of Islam.”
Geller, who runs a blog called Atlas Shrugs, dismissed the Law Center as an “uber left” group that has “failed to address the greatest threat to our national security.”
“My group is a human rights group,” she said. “And these people are taken seriously? This is the morally inverted state of the world.”
My group is a human rights group! Man, irony is dead, cremated, the ashes were ground up and fed to monkeys and their shit was blasted into outer space.

"The world is a rigged game"
Matt Taibbi at Rolling Stone: “Word has leaked out that the London-based firm ICAP, the world’s largest broker of interest-rate swaps, is being investigated by American authorities for behavior that sounds eerily reminiscent of the Libor mess. Regulators are looking into whether or not a small group of brokers at ICAP may have worked with up to 15 of the world’s largest banks to manipulate ISDAfix, a benchmark number used around the world to calculate the prices of interest-rate swaps.”

So, right-wingers, you want a society where families are stable, where everybody looks like you and shares your Christian faith, and where the government pretty much stays out of your business? It’s not in some Randian fantasy, it’s right here in the USA.
