I'll probably get a lot of shit for this post but I'm it up anyway. I miss the twin towers but I wish they'd build something, ANYTHING, on the site. I'm sorry those people had to die senselessly and I'm sincerely sorry for the survivors' grief BUT...enough already. This is not a national holiday. It's time to stop with the tearful tributes. Bad things happen, often to good people for no good reason. While the media is rehashing this story ad nauseum et ad infinitum here's what they're NOT talking about: Click Here for the Top Ten News Stories You'll Never Hear on the news: "Traditional media downplaying or ignoring significant events." No shit. Some of these are pretty bad. I especially like the fact that the Pentagon is now exempt from the freedom of information act. What could possibly go wrong? Those who need oversite the most are getting it the least. Eisenhower had it right:
"In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military-industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist. "
Now we have the military-industrial-entertainment complex. When the jack booted thugs come to put a black bag over my head and throw me in the back of a van never to be heard from again I'll have the bastards at Fox News and CNN to thank. They are lying to you. Resist.
BTW, if you think I'm some nut job left wing commie pinko fag you're mistaken. I merely value my freedom and I see it being eroded in favor of a facist police state every day. Read the constitution. Are you prepared to defend it against your own government by force of arms if need be? If not you might be called a coward (or worse a sheep) in some quarters. Just saying...
