reflections

i don't 'celebrate' or take part in the 'remembrances' of 9/11/01 and i never will. yep. sounds harsh but it isn't because i am callous or think less of the people who were killed. the whole 'ground zero' thing is a farce exploited by people who choose to rule from fear and want to keep that fearful seed planted firmly in the minds of their minions...we are special- we are under constant threat...

you'll excuse me if i laugh right out loud at the alleged 'terrorist threat' around the 9/11 events in new york city...i mean the real threat was upstate and it is called mother nature...i am surrounded by 30 feet of flood waters that are destroying the lives of thousands of my neighbors and i get to hear people piously intoning 'we will never forget'

whatever...they'll forget as soon as the next 'terrorist attack' happens...anyone ever hear about the oklahoma city bombing? the pan am flight 103 attack? nope...happened 15-20 years ago so it doesn't count anymore i guess....although we are in year 10 of the terrorist bullshit so i guess that's no excuse...

a nice lady wrote a fantastic piece that pretty much sums up my feelings on america and this whole shell of a country that we live in... my country died a long time ago but i didn't realize it fully until 9/11...i suppose that's what i remember each year around this time....

This is bravely stated. Thanks for stepping up and daring to doubt the "common wisdom," which is totally common and not at all wise!

Yes, we've "jumped the shark" here in the U.S.A., haven't we? Tea Partiers waving the Constitution, when they haven't a CLUE what the Framers were trying to say. Presidential candidates who think the Battle of Lexington and Concord strrrretchad all the way from Kentucky to New Hampshire!

I'm SO friggin' tired of having my children's future shaped by dim-wits! :(
