Random thoughts on the day.
As I was thinking about what to write about today I remembered that today would be 9/11 and I stopped my thoughts in their tracks. My first instinct was to think "maybe I should do some sort of memorial peace" but as I thought more about it I wondered how much longer will we be remembering the attacks on that day? Or more to the point how long with the people of this country remember it? Is there some sort of permanent remembrance or official pronouncement that needs to be made to permanently set the day apart?
While I do firmly believe that we where attacked by Islamic terrorists I think their motivation for the attack has been miss diagnosed. The way I see it they are just lashing out because they are jealous that American women are 10x hotter then anything they have back in the rat holes they come from.
But seriously the thing that drives me crazy about any talk about 9/11 is that republicans use it as justification for increased security, increased size to the government and so on. But my one question to this is if the republicans or anyone else for that matter truly cared about national security why the heck do they keep an open border to our south where any person can just walk on through?
I fully acknowledge the reality of evil people in this world who want to kill us for the life style we live. I believe there are many people in this very country who thought the attacks where a good thing because it brought American capitalism down a peg. If it was up to me when rebuilding the towers I would make them even higher and at the top I would put a giant middle finger pointing to the east.
