I have a simple observation. How come we can go to Dubai and set up an American company that handles major infrastructure projects yet we don't allow a Dubai company to set foot on our soil?

I thought it was conservatives who were against the Dubai ports deal. So you are in favor of Arabs running our ports?

Am I dreaming or has the blame now shifted?
WTF, I clearly remember every conservative talk show blasting the port deal and yeah some dems got on the bandwagon but this was clearly a right wing push.
Should I dig up some posts in here and let's all see who in BW stood for what? Should I?
