When did 9/11 become Todd Beamer Saved The White House From Destruction Day? I remember two big very buildings imploding, and a smaller one and…. They were barely mentioned. Hell they weren’t mentioned in a 9/11 memorial. Something’s wrong with that.
A teary voiced fireman talked about people who disrupted firemen’s funerals. WTF? They were sacred. We cried for the firemen, went to fire stations gave money and more money and more money. My mother died suddenly and I thought tragically the next month. She kept cash in her apartment and I gave my half to a firehouse that lost fourteen.
No person who thought Bush pretender to the presidency as he was the first appointed by the Supreme Court, certainly not elected president disrupted a funeral. Fox News and every other news source would have been all over it. LIAR!!!!!!!! My friend knew Rodney Gillis’s mother–the last cop to have part of his body identified and hence the last to have a true funeral. We all cared about every first responder.
I remember some religious fundamentalists picketing a funeral. Yes I remember a little girl with a picket sign. It was beyond gross. They call themselves Christian.Nobody else would. But they aren’t LIBERALS and the fireman made it seem as if liberals protested. I have been sick and second and third guessing myself ever since hearing him speak.
Oh the speaker who spoke for the Congressman (not Joe Wilson) Real funny when he said the Congressman couldn’t be there as he had to work on health care. Only it was Friday night and Congress goes home on weekends. Oh Tea Party Saturday. Right. Not on my dime and I’m the new face of North Myrtle Beach. The person who actually bought a house and renovated when nobody else was. I’m so willing to respect you in the morning but….
Getting people riled about the never mentioned directly, LIBERALS, is great politics. Really brings people together. Only quoting W, priceless. W came to Ground Zero once. New York got its promised 9/11 aid 3 years late. Wyoming needed it more. So populated; such an obvious target.
They’re calling 9/11 “Patriots Day” and apparently you can only be a patriot if you’re Republican. Everybody else wants to forget it. No, many of us have that day seared into a large spot in our brain.
We were told to go on; be like Brits during the blitz so we did. We went on because to not go on would be to mean we were insane.
Manhattan changed after 9/11. It would be easy to blame Bloomberg and the spirit of “make money, make money.
I moved to this city as it is so different from Manhattan. I had been living there since 01/03/76 when I moved daddy approved and found 5 East 63rd St. I was the uptown girl on the downtown train but when it came to buying I bought on Riverside Drive @ 75th Street on the Upper West Side.
I’m never going to stop being a New Yorker and you’re never going to stop being a small Southern city with a beach music theme. So keep the beach music and lose the telling people who is good and who is bad because there are more people like me here now.
I keep forgetting Friday night was about 9/11. Yours was very different than mine.
After this weekend I have lost all faith. In NY I only knew people who had my beliefs except for the “Jews for Bush” family–Saturday was “Heroes Day” Yes lets salute the troops the day after 9/11. Lets keep up the pretense the war in Iraq was a response to the attacks. I have nothing against the troops and can’t believe the job they do and redo and redo–all the re-deployments. But the war had nothing to do with 9/11 and everything to do with Bush, Cheney and let me throw in Karl Rove as he’s my biggest hate, egos.
After Friday night my friends from home who live here want nothing to do with anybody here unless they can produce documentation stating they voted for President Obama and I can’t blame them.
Because you would still think the president is Bush. The local newspaper is pretty balanced so I assume most people get their news from each other and from Fox
Go Rob Miller. The new face of South Carolina and the face that represents me. Cos I ain’t leaving. And when I get angry I’m dangerous. Ask any man who has dated me.
