I refuse to let anyone forget...

I hope all of you remember what happened on this day in 2001. Regardless of what you think happened, there was a tremendous loss of life...and it was for no reason at all...I WILL NEVER FORGET!!

I remember too. It was my planning period. I walked in the library, and saw that a plane had hit the WTC. I thought "What kind of fool would rin into something that big??!?!?". Then I saw the second hit. Damn.

There was a exchange student from Germany at my school. Some of the asshole redneck students called her names because she was foreign. I was angry and dissappointed.

I will never forger, and will always respect those in any uniform for what has been sacrificed.

Respectfully I disagree that it was for no reason at all. The Islamo-facists had and continue to have their reasons. Reasons that we as Americans may find hard to understand, but the inability to grasp those constructs will only lead to more bloodshed and if left unchecked will result in our grandchildren speaking Arabic if we survive at all. 11SEP2001 will be etched in my memory forever.

And we should never forget the Marines that paid the ultimate price in the Beruit bombing, the Sailors who died on the USS Cole and those who perished in the Embassy Bombings.

I don't care a rats ass about their reasons or concerns, just their absolute extermination. I refuse to coexist with those animals...EVER.
If that offends someone, I don't give a rats ass about that either.

The cadets at our neighboring Police Academy where I was taking a class today put on a nice ceremony...My FD did a memorial service this am.

I worked in downtown Washington DC at the time, 4 blocks from the White House. A guy with a TV in his office got a call from home, turned on the TV, and called us in moments before the second plane hit. I was heading out of DC soon after the Pentagon was struck. The underground Metro platform was packed with like-minded people. My train got to Rosslyn, the first station in VA, and was taken out of service, no clear reason. We joined thousands of others on that underground platform, where we were stuck for about 1/2 hour. It occurred to me how very vulnerable we were to a poison gas attack. It was quite a lesson for all of us, how quickly a handful of prepared and determined terrorists can throw the nation into disruption.

My biggest concern is that the lesson didn't teach us much that's useful. Continuing to live in the Washington DC area, I see all kinds of vulnerability that we haven't addressed. I'm sorry, but Homeland Security is a joke, an unwieldy megabureaucracy that had gazillions of dollars thrown its way, without a clue what to do. So they've been putting on a big security show. Do you feel more secure because you can't take a bottle of water or your nail clippers on the plane with you? because you're going to need a passport to cross the border from Canada, oh, one of these days?

I'm tired of having my rights as an American citizen messed with by a bunch of unchecked bureaucrats on a mission to surveill everybody except for the potential terrorists, while leaving our nation's vital infrastructure subject to easy attack. Do you think our nation's capital could be evacuated better now than 7 years ago? Don't be silly.

Awful large amount of rat's ass references. Must be using rats instead of gerbils now.

We should have just dropped a bomb on the whole area over there. Kill innocents?? Yeah, but they probably knew or in some way supported these "people".
