Where It's 9-11 All the Time...
various links | 09-11-02 | The Heavy Equipment Guy

Posted on 09/11/2002 3:30:23 AM PDT by backhoe

This is a small collection of links, organized into four consecutive categories:

1- A look back from now.
2- The 9-11 attack "as it went down, live..."
3- The aftermath.
4- Remembrance.

As with all such posts, there are links within links within links, and to fully remember and inform yourself, you need to follow them all- but be warned!
Some will take you to gruesome pictures and disturbing stories, so tread carefully.

I honestly believe that most Americans need to view these things, and never forget, or forgive, what was visited on defenseless and innocent people on that black day.

Use your own judgement, but look if you can.

Appreciate the kind words, and the flags to others. I've avoided looking at the TV today because I figure it will be their usual "mile-wide, quarter-inch deep" coverage.

Another awesome compilation backhoe. Your efforts are truly appreciated by this Freeper. BTW, I haven't had a chance to catch much of the teevee coverage what with domestic chores and all, but what I've seen has been passable. Which is about as good as it gets for most of our Ministry of Information ; )

God bless you and keep you.

Thanky fer the ping Mud.

As a way of bumping this post, I'll toss in a piece of poetry I worked on with the intention of leading with it- but in a classic case of writer's block, I got just so far, then couldn't squeeze any more out of it... blast it!

Where it's nine-eleven all the time
and no Sun sets,
and no clocks chime
where no voice speaks
and no bird trills
the Moon hangs frozen
o'er the hills
The winds are still, they seem to say,
Reflect, remember,
stop to pray...

I shall bump the experts...

"...I worked on with the intention of leading with it- but in a classic case of writer's block, I got just so far, then couldn't squeeze any more out of it... blast it!"

LOL...been there, done that plenty of times!! If you ever see one of my songs with the original words italicized, it simply means I got sick of listening to the song over and over again and figgered I'd just post what I'd completed up to that point and come back and finish it up later, which I may or may not do.

"Where it's nine-eleven all the time

"Speaking of Clinton, he is on the Letterman Show. How dare David have this piece of slime on his show. I'm not watching it though."

Letterman's a fraternity brother of mine, and I used to watch his show regularly back in college and for a few years after I graduated; however, the more I've become sensitive to politics, I've really come to discard him and his humor. The guy's lost a lot of his edge and is extremely political correct, IMHO. And now that I can FReep or surf the net if I'm up at that hour, Letterman's sorta gone by the wayside."

"I'm watching "Dirty Rotten Scoundrels".

LOL...tell me about it. I often have problems listening to the radio without reworking the words in my mind to transform almost every song I hear into an anti-Lib'ral and/or anti-Slick Willie ditty...it can get unnerving at times...)8^D!!

Then again, it's rarely boring inside my big ol' melonhead.

reworking the words

I have a real problem with that-- a few years ago Emily & I were invited to a Christmas party at our Priest's house ( I was for some years a choir singer... ) and he, she, and I ended up leading the group in singing popular Christmas songs.

Only problem was, I had, ahem! reworded them into X-rated versions, and I had an awful time recalling the straight lyrics in time to sing the dam' things...

BWAHAHAHA!! I've got a similar problem when I get together with my bandmembers to practice...when I sing my reworked lyrics, it throws them off becuz they start laughing, so I have to sing the originals to keep time and I have to have the original lyrics right in front me 'cuz my lyrics have pushed the originals outta my noggin.

ME IDENTIFIES 1,500TH WTC VICTIM (NEVER FORGET WHY WE FIGHT THE WAR ON TERROR!)

The Massacre of September 11th.
Never, never, never, never forget what subhuman terrorist filth did to the US on 9-11-01. To put the destruction into proper scale, this GroundZero photo essay helps. As do these remarkable photos, even more drive home the point that it was a massacre of innocents. And if you'd like to ratchet your anger and hatred up, as mine has been since that awful day last September, read this account of the dozens of people jumping from 100+ stories from the WTC Towers. As this reporter says, "embrace the rage". And The Washington Times weighs-in with their commemorative edition of 9-11 horror.

Here's the live thread, on freerepublic.com, and the ongoing posts that I caught on that terrible morning, as it happened.

Here's a 9-11 News Site, which covers it, superbly. As if we needed reminding.

Here are the 2998 Victims of The Massacre of September 11th, 2001. As of 6.19.03, only 1,500 of the innocent victims have been identified; the rest were vaporized. Are you getting angry, again, as I am?

After the 1993 World Trade Center bombing, which killed six and injured 1,000; President Rapist-Liar-in-Chief Clinton promised that those responsible would be hunted down and punished. After the 1995 bombing in Saudi Arabia, which killed five U.S. military personnel; Rapist-Liar-in-Chief Clinton promised that those responsible would be hunted down and punished. After the 1996 Khobar Towers bombing in Saudi Arabia, which killed 19 and injured 200 U.S. military personnel; Rapist-Liar-in-Chief Clinton promised that those responsible would be hunted down and punished. After the 1998 bombing of U.S. embassies in Africa, which killed 224 and injured 5,000; Rapist-Liar-in-Chief Clinton promised that those responsible would be hunted down and punished. After the 2000 bombing of the USS Cole, which killed 17 and injured 39 US sailors; Rapist-Liar-in-Chief Clinton promised that those responsible would be hunted down and punished. Maybe if Rapist-Liar-in-Chief Clinton had kept his promise, an estimated 3,000 people in New York and Washington, DC, that are now dead, would be alive today. The Criminal Clinton lowlifes Klintoon Kriminals; ahhhhh, what a pair!

Need to keep up your anger, hate and rage quotient, for The Massacre of 9-11? Go to Toby Keith's site, or Darryl Worley's site; here's the video to that song.

I don't want justice; I want revenge! Never forget.
