(Before It's News)

iv dir=”ltr” style=”text-align: left;” trbidi=”on”> Feb 14 thru March 5th, 2017 – Duffy Sq (46th and Bdwy)- NYC – Valentines Day. Peace. Love. Never waste a moment to preach to the masses: “We Were Strangers Once, too”(Barack Obama)


Just what I would expect from  these public-funded committees that seem to only approve ODD ART projects.


A curiosity – that may never make sense -  Of course


de rigueur (a must


Since I was on my way to “I am a Muslim, too”, no time to ponder, wander nor wade through those poles; to READ and decipher this IMMIGRANT installation. (Not high on my bucket list)


The installation designed by The Office for Creative Research beat out several others to be the winner of this year's Times Square Valentine Heart Design Competition.


“We Were Strangers Once, Too” Perhaps it was meant to make the tourists wonder HOW TRUMP could HATE Immigrants!


The exhibit is about 10 feet high and features 33 poles inscribed and colored to represent the different places where some of the foreign-born NYC residents came from. As visitors move around the sculpture, they get a different perspective. Once they arrive at the designated spot, a heart is revealed.
Next stop, 48th street and “I Am a Muslim,Too, Part Deux

  • Ok, I’m thinking that our country was and is based on migration…..the only problem today is….some of those immigrants do not want to better their lives for themselves and their families….like it used to be.

    So, why don’t you people that think we are closing our boarders to a specific religion, go to a country you are supporting and try life with the locals, see how you are treated, and if you come back alive…I would bet you a dime to a dollar you’re view would be changed.

    I do not like or care for or even understand war today, thought we were trying to be civilized, I do not support forced regime change or meddling in sovereign countries.

    But our fearless leaders think different, I can certainly understand why people’s of the world hate America …. After all, how would you feel if some occupying force came to America to change up our government, because their interest were not being fulfilled ?
    I am not excusing anyone or anything, just trying to be real about a problem, so if trump decides to shake up Washington because he sees the same problems, so be it.

    I understand the I am Muslim too rally was filled with people that would be executed in other countries for their lifestyle, don’t they know that?
