Gosh, I was asleep at the time. I was working the night shift, and work up around 3 in the afternoon. What a wake up call that was!!
Looking back on it all, I thought it was kinda strange, that a lot of people didn't recall Larry Silverstein's other building. Building 7, which collapsed about 5:20p.m. I remember it specifically, because I saw it fall myself. Thought it was kinda strange, how it just dropped, without fire/jet hitting it.
Never really gave it much thought, until our dumbass president said shortly later, "go out and shop." Right, 3000 lay murdered in New York, and in less than 2 days, you're telling people to go and shop, TO PROVE YOUR PATRIOTISM!! (what a fucking idiot!!)
So, in a way, I may have looked at the initial onslaught of 911, a little different than most. Since I didn't actually see it unfold, the initial impact, may have been lessened a bit. However, after seeing about every 911 movie/video out there now, I can now, understand the initial impact, of people who actually witnessed it's "gory" beginning.
What the real turning point was for me, is when I was surfing the internet, during the college basketball tournaments in March of 2003. My first website, challenging the official story, was David Von Kleist's "In Plane Site." Long story short...Was the fact that no plane hit the Pentagon. (no holes, bodies, blood, luggage, PLANE etc. etc. etc.)
It was about right there, when the words of our "fearless dumbass," started ringing in my ears once more. "Go out an shop." (yes, our first anal breech birth president)
In addition, this, "too stupid to be a used tire," had a town meeting, answering questions about where he was, and what he was doing that dreadful day. In addition of him seeing THE FIRST PLANE HIT, on 911, which no one saw, UNTIL THE FOLLOWING DAY, to joking about his brother Jeb, I started to smell a rat. He lied about the first plane, or had a closed circuit television, watching it all unfold. In addition, having a "game show" demeanor, at that town meeting, JOKING ABOUT BROTHER "JEB," with no sense of remorse whatsoever, RAISED MAJOR FLAGS WITH ME BY THEN!!
In closing, I myself, and to this very day, still think I'm living a "nightmare." What has made this personally hard for me, as a progressive democrat, is the fact that NO ONE IN THE MEDIA, WANTS BUSH'S/CHENEY'S BALLS ON A PLATTER!! They will not challenge the official story, they will not, "hold people's feet to the fire" over 911, or plead for a new investigation to begin with. In addition, there are over 1600 and growing architechs, SCREAMING FOR A NEW INVESTIGATION!! No one, and I mean no one in our corporate media, will challenge them!!
...and you think the american people are going to get
1)single payer health care
2)no more wars
3)repeal of that "God awful patriot act"
4)a sustainable green energy policy/JOBS!!
5rising gas prices
6)fair tax policy
7)free and open airwaves for all americans
8 physical threats from the neo-right
9)threats to our social security/medicare from "the filthy right"
10) A PRESIDENT WITH NO POLITICAL BALLS!! (yes, a fricken' coward)
11)debt debt debt debt debt debt debt and more debt
12)a "lame duck" congress, WHICH INCLUDES THE OTHER 640 DAYS AS WELL!!
...to me anyway, this whole "can of worms," is like a 8.5x11 piece of paper with a whole "gob" of dots. For every piece of correct information EXPOSED, about 911, you connect (2) dots, until you see Cheney's face appear. You know, the guy without a pulse, no matter if his heart is real or artificial?
Yes, it's still a nightmare to me, up to this very day!! (and it continues) Sometimes, I feel, I don't know my fellow americans anymore. (I shit you not, I REALLY REALLY, feel this way, unfortunately)
...and it takes a small country, such as Nigeria, to show enough "political balls," to try Cheney for a much smaller criminal act of "bribery," instead of making this creep, "wiggle on the end of a rope" at ground zero, for the murder, of 3000 of our own!!
(Christ!!...What have we become!!)
