Bloviating Zeppelin: Ten Years After

Bloviating Zeppelin

(in-ep-toc'-ra-cy) - a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.

Ten Years After



























2,977 deaths.

2,403 deaths at Pearl Harbor on December 7th, 1941.

What have we learned, following 9-11-2001?

I submit: not nearly enough.

I am certain that on that September day there were angels among us, and I would imagine that they too wept…

I’m a big strong guy, but I am not the least bit bothered to tell you, I wept, from anger, from compassion, from a feeling of total helplessness, and yes, even fear, not fear for myself, but fear for my family and their immediate…

I was 1,500 miles from home that day and all I could think of was getting home to my wife and making sure my children were safe, and I couldn’t do that…

None of us knew what the future held, we still don’t, but I hope with all my heart that these same angels are with us now…

I can’t speak for all Americans, but I know that I am still hurting, every day that goes by I remember 9-11, and I don’t know if a *healing* will ever take place in me, but I pray for the lives of those affected in an even more direct fashion, I pray for our firefighters, police officer and our troops… I pray that ALL of America will wake up to the dangers around us and unite in an effort to defeat the evils that threaten our lives and freedoms.

No matter where that evil comes from!

I will NEVER forgive and I will NEVER forget!

We learned many things, but have not applied them. Perhaps its the lack of political will, or perhaps its our nature to rationalize & try to understand. However, we must understand that there is an enemy that hates us, & will stop at nothing to either convert us, make us submit, or kill us because we are not like them.

Some of us learned how to bury our heads in the sand. Some of us learned how to change history so that our children won't learn about 9/11 in schools. Some of us learned how to spin a wild conspiracy theory. Some of us learned that only a few Muslims are bad, the rest love us.

Yeah, I guess you're right, we haven't learned nearly enough. Whatever happened to the greatest country on the planet? It's sure not the same place it was after Pearl Harbor.

And trust me, Fred, I'll be watching for that APL show tomorrow night about Lisa.

Tom: it's the lack of political will, guilt, the inherent "goodness" coupled with an inability to see what is directly in front of our noses, mixed with naivete.

AOW: most flags are gone, most people are underwater, most people can't understand how we got here. And too many want their Free Cheese and MORE.

I'm done mourning the dead of Sept 11th (I'll never forget them though) I'm mourning the loss of America as a whole now. We seem to forget the reason we were hit. We seem to forget that on December 7th 1951 nobody in America worried about Japan attacking us again. We seem to forget that it took 4 years to BUILD both of those towers and ten years later they still remain unfinished.

We have lost what made us great. We have forgot what our parents and grandparents fought for and we pissed it all away in the name of some political correct ideology that has cost more lives than both the Nukes we dropped on Japan.

Afghanistan should be uninhabitable for the next 50 years. And it should have been that ways since September 12 2001.

You may ask "Why must we kill those who had nothing to do with it?" To that I say: We nuked Japan's cities full of people who may or may not have hated America. The government of Japan declared war on us. NOW the people in Afghanistan declared war on us so they are fair game. FK EM.

Every Sept 11th since about 2005 I just get angry. I get frustrated with our "Elite" pricks we sent to DC. None have a nut between them and I thank GOD there were real men in power in the 40's or we'd all be eating sushi as a staple.

And many 9/11 families still have to deal with the fact that their loved ones' remains have never been recovered.

Robert: we know what we should have done, and we lacked the political and social will to do it.

AOW: there's nothing to recover when your loved ones have been reduced to liquid from millions of tons of concrete.

I think it's all been said before. What is sad, is it could happen again. The whole thought is frightening and depressing.
