911

I felt even worse yesterday, than I did a year ago. I'm barely starting to come out of my depression and anger at the events of 911. My heart is heavy with sadness and grief, for all those who lost their live and for those who were actual witness to the horror of that day.

Although, I didn't vote for him, I am 100% behind President Bush and I know he will do what must be done. God bless America, now and always.

~shudders~

I dont dig what happened on 9-11, but Bush trying to turn our country into a totalitarian system where they can take away the basic rights because "they deem" someone to be a threat... I just dont dig on that either.

Bush is quickly becoming the Antichrist, and Im not even a Christian. But, hey.. thats my two cents..

Re: Oh-Dear-God
I agree.

Why is it that Americans are only sad when Americans are killed needlessly?

I agree, too. Somehow it's easy in this country to justify the deaths of thousands of innocent citizens of Afghanistan since 9/11...how are they less important than Americans? I thought all people were created equal!

Re: Oh-Dear-God
Absolutely.

To paraphrase: "Those who would sacrifice freedom for security deserve neither." -- Benjamin Franklin.

And, we have no causus belli with Iraq. And what happened to "innocent before proven guilty?" If it's good enough for us, then it's good enough to apply to an entire country. Yes, Saddam is an evil bastard; but if we want to attack a country solely based on the morals of its leaders, then we'd have a plethora of candidates awaiting the landing of our troops. The war on Iraq is also unprecedented in that it's a pre-emptive strike for something he might do.

The real reasons, I think, for the President's sabre-rattling is to distract us from the corporate scandals of which he and his cronies are involved up to their eye teeth. Also, the military-industrial complex will enjoy the benefits of war as the machinery for cranking out materiel gets going. And, most importantly, you can almost guarantee that a puppet, US friendly regime will make the oil companies hearts beat for joy. Never, ever forget that Bush and Cheney are oil men.

LJ: Invitation
Salus,

I am hopendures of LJ. I'm writing for a number of different reasons. One was because you came up as a fairly high result on a like-minded interests search I ran, so I figured why not try to get to know some people more like myself, perhaps? The second reason is to ask for permission to put you on my friends list? The final one, is to ask if you wouldn't mind having a look-over of my own LJ? And offhand, you are one incredibly attractive lady. It doesn't have many entries, but their length (very detailed), depth, and quality, more than makes up for any lack quantity. I'm sure you'll find them disturbing at worst, a chuckle at indifference, or perhaps even inspiring at best. Do you choose to accept my offer, or let it be forgotten in the fulness of time? I leave this choice to you, but know that I wouldn't have extended it so courteously if I didn't value YOUR input or opinion. Thanks again for reading me out.

Until the next, dangerous dreams and dark embraces, "hopendures" -- A.K.A. - V^^^Val

PS: For everyone else, you need only go to my LJ and read my 9-11 rant to understand MY feelings on it. I COMPLETELY agree, with what W. HAS to do.

It's people like you...
... that bring shame to the idea of being "American." You are a shallow consumerist tool of the media. Enjoy your robot nature.

Yep
Hey i agree with what you said, i think, at least in the sense of fighting those that promote the type of activities around the world that have finally impacted us on 9/11, that FINALLY America is doing what it should have done a long time ago.

That being said, he's still waaay too authoritarian and nationalist to get my approval. Anyway, thought i'd comment in support.

I believe in America... part of that means believing in our President. I agree with you on the solemnity and pride.
