Last night, less than 48 hours after a jihadist killed four Marines and one police officer[i],the Empire State Building illuminated its towers in the color of green for the three-day celebration Muslim of Eid al-Fitr, which marks the end of Ramadan.
According to an ESB spokesperson, this is not the first lighting of what somewhere along the line has been designated a “tradition” by the ESB’s Progressive and extremely political owners. (Suggested reading: Empire State Building Owners Donate Heavily To, Owned By Democrats)
Clearly, it never occurred to the owners of ESB to cancel last night’s lighting, tradition or not in light of Thursday’s Chattanooga Islamic terrorist attack. Priorities, you know. (sarcasm)
This is one of those moments when advocates political correctness which is selective and always on the wrong side of things deserves a good kick in the rear.

About Ask Marion
I am a babyboomer and empty nester who savors every moment of my past and believes that it is the responsibility of each of us in my generation and Americans in general to make sure that America is as good or even a better place for future generations as it was for us. So far... we haven't done very well!!
"The first 50 years are to build and acquire; the second 50 are to leave your legacy";
"Do something that scares you every day!";
"The journey in between what you once were and who you are becoming is where the dance of life really takes place".
At age 62 I find myself fighting inoperable uterine Cancer and thanks to the man upstairs and the prayers from so many people including many of my readers from AskMarion and JustOneMorePet... I'm beating it.
After losing our business because of the economy and factors related to the re-election of President Obama in 2012 followed by 16-mos of job hunting, my architect-trained husband is working as a trucker and has only been home approximately 5-days a month since I was diagnosed, which has made everything more difficult and often lonely... plus funds are tight. Our family medical deductible is 12K per year for two of us; thank you ObamaCare.
But thanks to donations from so many of you, we are making ends meet as I go through treatment while taking care of my father-in-law who is suffering from late stage Alzheimer's and my mother-in-law who suffers from RA and onset dementia as well as hearing loss, for which there are no caretaker funds,
as I continue the fight here online to inform and help restore our amazing country.
And finally I need to thank a core group of family, friends, and readers... all at a distance, who check in with me regularly. Plus, I must thank my furkids who have not left my side through this fight. You can see them at JustOneMorePet.
