History

I can't help but feel a little down today, and every time I end up writing the date down on some piece of paper, it drags the days down just a bit more. I wonder if those older than I feel the same way when they write 12/7 or 11/22.

The entire Bush Administration can still go screw themselves.

I don't recall writing the dates, but they weigh on my mind. Most affecting for me is remembering 6/6/68.

That one I don't remember as well (I know the event happened, of course, but not the date). If I think of 6/6, it's in 1944.

D-Day! That's the date we started to make the world safe for town hall crazies ...

I think of 9/11 as an excuse to kill hundreds of thousands of innocent people who had nothing to do with 9/11, a reason to flex our military muscle with no game plan as to why, an opportunity to extort hundreds of billions of American tax dollars and torture human beings while violating my rights into oblivion.

Yes, about 3,000 people died while being in the wrong place at the wrong time. That doesn't move me as much as the 12,000+ who will be killed by drunk drivers or the over half MILLION Americans who will die of cancer this year. When will our politicians spend a trillion dollars on those causes?

For me 9/11 = pure evil in the form of American politics at its worst. It's a shame because I'm sure we lost some very good people that day who didn't deserve what happened to them. That fate should be what happens to Bush, Rumsfeld, Cheney and Ashcroft. Burn in Hell you motherfuckers.
