Agreed. I have posted this rant on all the ad threads.
Why doesn't the media interview me? I could tell how offended I am by John Kerry's traitorous activities since coming home from Nam. I could discuss the fact that I have no idea where Kerry stands on any given issue at any given time since he appears to have no stand.
Though I feel for the families who lost someone on 9/11, the attacks are not their private property. The attacks were aimed at every American. I am sick of people acting like because they lost someone, this is private. Their loss is private but the attacks were not. I will never forget that it was an attack on me, my family, my friends, my nation. I take it personal as should every American.
If George W. Bush wants to use 9/11 in his campaign, that is his right. He was attacked too. His response to the attacks shows the character and courage his predecessor did not have when we were attacked so many times during those 8 dark years.
God Bless America and George W. Bush.

This is such an excellent point you make. If the victims had been attacked in their homes (or even in public) by someone who singled them out for a personal vendetta, that would be a private matter. If the victims had been killed in an accident of some kind--plane crash, building collapse, car accident, poison gas from a refinery, etc.--then it would be a private matter. But those terrorists didn't care who they killed. It could have been literally anyone in the world inside those towers that day, and they all would have been the target.
I don't care how the victims families have reacted to this tragedy. If any one of them wishes to forgive the murderers and just "move on," that's just great. Good for them. But it isn't their place to forgive them on my behalf, because the next victim of these thugs may be someone I love. And I can assure you I would not forgive. Ever.
