We have successfully created a culture with no historical continuity, no sense of its past, even a past as recent as 2001. In order to be able to imprint new memes on every generation, the Left has to erase the existing cultural identity. From the looks of it, they are succeeding.

Who thought on Sept. 12, 2001 that this day would come?

This article is a joke, right? If not, then I am deeply ashamed of my fellow Americans.

It is the same year that New York was featured on the Quarter in the States Quarter series.

Looks like the campaign by the MSM to pretend 9/11 never happened by not showing any images of the attacks that day are paying off.

Nah, they're part of that permanent 45% of the perpetually "stuck on stupid" mob that votes Democrat....

They are the result of the drug and free love 60's/70's assholes in charge of "pubic education" (intentional).

They implemented "No child left behind" as "No child's behind left alone".....

They dumbed down at least the last 3 decades of kids -- most of whom don't know their ass from a hole in the ground..

Semper Fi

My own recolletion of that day is really wierd. I woke up before the alarm went off (We live in Mountain TimeZone) because someone yelled "America will wake up from Her Complacency", only nobody was there. No radio or anything. I fixed breakfast for Wifey, and she went to work. On a whim, I turned on the TV and the first plane had just hit the first tower.

This memory black hole is essentially the problem of the older crowd: 48 percent of those who did not know were between the ages of 55 and 64, and 47 percent were older than 65, according to the poll.

Snort. This poll is worthless.

Who were the 5% who couldn't identify the month and day of the September 11 attacks! Ouch

Thankfully these people don't vote. Of course they also don't get up to go to the bathroom.

"Who's buried in Grant's tomb?"

I always heard that it was his white horse.
