    Excellent!
    I'm taking America back. Step 1: I'm taking my kids out of the public re-education system. They will no longer have liberal bias and lies like this from bullying teachers when I expect them to be taught reading, writing, and arithmetic:

    On this 9th anniversary of 9/11 I'd like to recommend to everyone a documentary I saw for the first time last year - 102 Minutes That Changed America.

    Be prepared for a severe gut punch if you decide to watch it. It will take you right back to that morning.

    Excellent tribute Ryan!!!

    We must force ourselves to never forget.

    I've watched several specials today on 911, it has re-kindled my resolve to stay focused on what happened 9 years ago and what we as Americans must continue to stand for in this country.

    9/11 – The Silence is Shattered by the Cries of the Ghosts

    by John Galt

    September 11, 2010


    There are ghosts in our history which must be listened to.

    Yet in our society there is a tendency now to act in a more self-served manner, to never listen to those ghosts, their words, their voices. The demands, not requests, for tolerance and obedience, and to sacrifice one’s freedoms so others may impose their own version of America’s history and beliefs are louder than the voices of these ghosts and citizens who wish to remember. False Gods and Prophets are the calling of the day, the almighty dollar and the almighty government are to be your leaders both spiritual and moral. This new society so carefully crafted over the past century by the technocrats and centralized planners within our nation is empowered now but the ghosts cry out from the darkness begging us to change our path.

    Sadly, no one hears them.

    “Do not let our deaths be in vain!” they cry out into the darkness. The soldiers, the citizens, the foreigners who perished on September 11, 2001 and after in the wars to eradicate the terrorist threat demand we listen, but most Americans turn their back or create delusions of a grand conspiracy to justify their deaths while ignoring the facts that murder requires no elaborate plan nor deviant room full of men in dark robes. The United States was going into a new period of internationalist darkness regardless of the events on that clear autumn morning and the reaction by the citizenry and leadership only accelerated the process. The idea that terrorism should be eradicated has since been replaced by a policy of tolerance and containment, appeasement and denial.

    The ghosts cry out “Why my brethren, why do you forget?”

    Acceptance of the common theme that our beliefs caused this attack is now the modern ideals by both the loony left and ridiculous right, while the majority of the nation refuses to speak out against this obscenity, preferring to follow the twisted logic of forgive and forget. The ghosts cry out and beg us not to simply lay wreaths and bow our heads but to defend the freedoms they sacrificed and acknowledge that their deaths were not in vain. Sadly they will not be heard today as the community organizers and profiteers prefer to pay tribute to everyone, including those who condone the hate of the attackers and their beliefs, instead of respecting the cries of the ghosts.

    Please listen to their cries. Please remember and pray for our nation. Ignore the naysayers and promoters of tolerance and listen to the cries of those who died for nothing more than living their lives with no voice in the geopolitical and moral decisions of the ignorant old men and Marxist appeasers who are now intent on ignoring their sacrifice and molding a new order in their perverted world view. Listen to the cries of these ghosts and respect what their families have lost on this day. And remember that freedom is but one fleeting moment we shall enjoy as long as we are willing to defend it. Those men and women in uniform who have made the ultimate sacrifice have heard the cries of the ghosts and continue to listen in the name of our nation, our Constitution, and freedom.

    Listen to them. Reflect. And never forget.

    9/11 List of Victims:

    List of World Trade Center Victims (not including plane crews or passengers)

    (I will list the entire list of victims here if you would like. It is posted on my blog today if you wish to see the names; I did not want to take that much of the webpage and create such a long scroll on this site unless the mods wish for it.)

    Muslims Celebrating 9/11, probably some duplication here but hey, facts need to be repeated. Muslims want us dead, why sugar coat it.

    102 Minutes is tough to watch.

    But it needs to be watched.

    I received this from Ranger Up, a vendor I've bought shirts from in the past (they weren't selling anything in the email), and thought it was very poignant.

    15 years ago today 2,996 people were murdered, including 71 law enforcement officers, 343 fire fighters, and 55 service personnel.

    Don't know about anyone else but to me it seems like it just happened. Hard to believe it has been a whole 15 years. All of the scenes I see on the memorial shows are still vividly fresh in my memory. I still remember how that morning progressed and I get incredibly sad. I hope that always remains the case.

    And yet at the same time it seems like it was a totally different world compared to today. Hard to explain...

    Just like that morning, today happens to be bright and sunny without a cloud in the sky. Quite a bit warmer this year though.

    Never forget.






    On a side note, kudos to Microsoft and Bing for once again having a very tasteful memorial home page. At least this year Google managed to put a ribbon up.

    As we wrap up another 9/11 anniversary, hopefully we've all managed to take time out of our days to remember the fateful events of that day.

    As it becomes more and more distant in the past, it seems like more and more actually are forgetting despite all the cries in the past of "Never forget."
