Bruce Springsteen, Billy Joel, Sheryl Crow, George Clooney, Julia Roberts, Tom Petty, Al Pacino, and many more entertainment industry luminaries teamed up on September 21, 2001, for this live telethon raising funds for the families of the victims of the September 11th terrorist attacks. The focus of America: A Tribute to Heroes were 21 musical performances, interspersed with speeches and personal histories commemorating the lives lost at the World Trade Center, the Pentagon, and in Pennsylvania some ten days prior. Simulcast commercial-free on almost 40 networks, the event garnered more than 200 million dollars in support before being released to home video in December of 2001.

    Goin to DC! WhooHooOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

  2. Katie Says:

    Hi j.b. – I’ve been wondering where you’ve been. How was your TEA Party event? You’ve been so quiet I was worried you were arrested for being a part of the ‘mob’.

  3. j.b. Says:

    How can I arrange to meet fellow gang members?
    We’ll have a computer and Blackberry……….any ideas?

    We went to the Tea Party on Tuesday-It was fantastic!

    We just arrived in DC and set up the trailer for the night.
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    Rose – you have your own “on the scene” reporters. I hope we hear a lot of great stories from all of you going to DC.

    I will be cheering on our own Tenacity who has been honored to carry Bob Schulz’s words to thousands. Congratulations, Tenacity!

    I came over to post the J B Williams article at CFP but see that the Quick and Competent Katie beat me to it. Red and I plan to talk about this tonight on Let’s Talk Liberty. Our special guest tonight is Jim Cabaniss, the President of AVIDD, American Veterans In Domestic Defense. It will be another great show. Call-in Number: (347) 215-6929

    Also, I will be speaking this Saturday at the 9/12 Tea Party at the Colorado State Capital in Denver. I am scheduled to speak at 8:30 pm, the last to speak. We will be passing out CC2009 delegate election packages at the We The People Congress booth.

  6. j.b. Says:

    Hi Katie, been lurking a bit….getting ready, etc. I was trying to share my videos last night………got caught up in watching ALL of my vids with family,kids b-days, etc. I still am not sure how to post from my flip cam……:( It is all so time consuming for me!
    Gotta go clean out my car.ugh.

    Goin’ to DC! 10 hour drive:( I don’t care! It will be SO worth it! 🙂

    Oh, I did approach a cop at the Tea Party and asked if he had to deal with anyone acting like “The Mob?”
    He laughed. Then he pointed to the “30 or 40 democrats over there, puttin’ up a stink”. Then I laughed!

  7. j.b. Says:

    Wow, good for you, Ten. And good luck!

  9. Katie Says:

    Rose – your tribute is beautiful.

    I. Will. Never. Get. Over. It.

    Here’s my 9/11 story.

    I had an opportunity to go to NYC for a business meeting, and discussed it with hubby. We had a vision of a rat infested, overcrowded with rude people, dirty city. But I have a dear friend who worked right across from the WTC in One Liberty Plaza and she promised to be our tour guide.

    We stayed down near the Ed Sullivan theater, and had a spectacular time. Except for one part.

    My friend took us on the subway down to the WTC area – we went into her building and saw where she worked. We walked around the base of the buildings, and I had the first panic attack of my life. (I’m from a city with some of the world’s tallest skyscrapers and have never reacted like this.)

    The panic attack was caused by a powerful vision I had of those two buildings falling over and destroying the area. I begged my friend to get us out of there, and said “there’s a horrible energy in this place.”

    We left there and went to the ferry to go over to see the Statue of Liberty. I sobbed when I saw her – as I imagine millions of others have. We looked back at the skyline, with those magnificent towers standing tall, and had a wonderful photo taken of us with that skyline in the background.

    On the morning of 9/11/01, I watched in horror as we all did. My husband called from the office and asked me to fly the American flag. We still have that flag, and he flies one every day – to this day.

    My husband retired from 20 years in the Marine Corp and 20 years as a Firefighter. I am a proud wife.

    Thankfully, my friend had taken that day off and wasn’t across the street when disaster struck.

    And for the truly astounding part. Several hours after those buildings were destroyed, I remembered the pictures we had taken. I ran to the closet to get the photo albums so I could see them again.

    There was a date stamp in the corner of the photo.

    It was 9/11/99.

    “The panic attack was caused by a powerful vision I had of those two buildings falling over and destroying the area.”

    Wow, Katie, that is some story!

    Two years before the event.

    You must have been feeling what the rest of us did at a later date.

    How strange and prophetic.

    I’m almost afraid to ask.

    Had any visions lately?!

  11. j.b. Says:

    Dang, Katie, that is chilling.

    Thank you for the tribute, Rose. I will reward myself by taking it all in when I take a break from the demands of preparing to drag all that I “need” for the weekend. It ain’t easy when you work from your car. It is my “store”. Now the garage is.

  12. Katie Says:

    No more visions that are that specific. I keep trying to get that Powerball Jackpot number, but so far no luck. 😉

    But twice I have seen car accidents in my mind that happened a few minutes later. Unfortunately, I was in one of those accidents.

    I have learned to listen to my inner voice. Without question.

    It’s telling me that America is going to come out of this. I don’t know how and I don’t know when, but she’s too great to succumb to their evil plan.

  13. rosettasister Says:

    BTW, if any of you would like to share your 9/11 stories, now might be a good time.

    Did Cyn ever share hers, she was stuck in Mexico and couldn’t reenter the States?

    I’m guessing many haven’t shared for one reason or another.

    It took me the longest time to even speak of it.

    BTW, the link I posted above for America: A Tribute to Heroes.

    I remember sitting with my daughter and watching live.

    Our son was away at college and my husband wasn’t home. I think it was one of the nights he stayed in Queens at Shea Stadium.

    The first responders were being fed and housed there.

    I went to bed, but the strangest thing happened.

    I fell asleep but I could still “see” my daughter watching the broadcast.

    She was sitting there weeping alone.

    Her birthday is September 12th.

    Shortly thereafter we had a big Sweet Sixteen party for her.

    I still get choked up when I think about that.

    “It’s telling me that America is going to come out of this.”

    I “see” the same thing, Katie.

    Some troubled times ahead, but then we come out of it okay.

    By 2018?

    I know that sounds crazy, but who cares, everybody already thinks me a loon!

  16. rosettasister Says:

    bbl, good people!

  17. Katie Says:

    Hey Foxy Rose, you lovable loon 🙂

    An early Happy Birthday to your daughter, and may this year’s birthday be a wonderful celebration of seeing what American Patriots are all about!

    j.b. – Safe travels to you and all who are going, and know you carry a little piece of all of us with you!

    The White House
    1600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW
    Washington , DC 20500

    Mr. Obama:

    I have had it with you and your administration, sir. Your conduct on your recent trip overseas has convinced me that you are not an adequate representative of the United States of America collectively or of me personally.

    You are so obsessed with appeasing the Europeans and the Muslim world that you have abdicated the responsibilities of the President of the United States of America . You are responsible to the citizens of the United States .. You are not responsible to the peoples of any other country on earth.

    I personally resent that you go around the world apologizing for the United States telling Europeans that we are arrogant and do not care about their status in the world. Sir, what do you think the First World War and the Second World War were all about if not the consideration of the peoples of Europe ? Are you brain dead? What do you think the Marshall Plan was all about? Do you not understand or know the history of the 20th century?

    Where do you get off telling a Muslim country that the United States does not consider itself a Christian country? Have you not read the Declaration of Independence or the Constitution of the United States ? This country was founded on Judeo-Christian ethics and the principles governing this country, at least until you came along, come directly from this heritage. Do you not understand this?

    Your bowing to the king of Saudi Arabia is an affront to all Americans. Our President does not bow down to anyone, let alone the king of Saudi Arabia … You didn’t show Great Britain , our best and one of our oldest allies, the respect they deserve yet you bow down to the king of Saudi Arabia … How dare you, sir! How dare you!

    You can’t find the time to visit the graves of our greatest generation because you don’t want to offend the Germans but make time to visit a mosque in Turkey … You offended our dead and every veteran when you give the Germans more respect than the people who saved the German people from themselves. What’s the matter with you? I am convinced that you and the members of your administration have the historical and intellectual depth of a mud puddle and should be ashamed of yourselves, all of you.

    You are so self-righteously offended by the big bankers and the American automobile manufacturers yet do nothing about the real thieves in this situation, Mr. Dodd, Mr. Frank, Franklin Raines, Jamie Gorelic, the Fannie Mae bonuses, and the Freddie Mac bonuses. What do you intend to do about them? Anything? I seriously doubt it.

    What about the U.S. House members passing out $9.1 million in bonuses to their staff members on top of the $2.5 million in automatic pay raises that lawmakers gave themselves? I understand the average House aide got a 17% bonus. I took a 5% cut in my pay to save jobs with my employer. You haven’t said anything about that. Who authorized that? I surely didn’t!

    Executives at Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac will be receiving $210 million in bonuses over an eighteen-month period, that’s $45 million more than the AIG bonuses. In fact, Fannie and Freddie executives have already been awarded $51 million not a bad take. Who authorized that and why haven’t you expressed your outrage at this group who are largely responsible for the economic mess we have right now?

    I resent that you take me and my fellow citizens as brain-dead and not caring about what you idiots do. We are watching what you are doing and we are getting increasingly fed up with all of you.

    I also want you to know that I personally find just about everything you do and say to be offensive to every one of my sensibilities. I promise you that I will work tirelessly to see that you do not get a chance to spend two terms destroying my beautiful country.

    Sincerely,
    Every real American

    HORRIFIC BOMBSHELL: Joe Wilson Took NoDoz Caffiene Pills in 2007 Or Something

    …making him as bad as any college student cramming for exams. Here are NoDoz, for the uninitiated.

    Of course, this is just a pathetic leftwing non-smear-in-the-making (they’re obviously trying to make you think he’s some kind of whacked-out drug addict).

    Let’s compare: Ted Kennedy (D) killed a woman and was an alcoholic – sorry, because he was an alcoholic. Barack Obama (D) admitted he did coke and pot in college – habitually. That was acceptable behavior, according to Joe Wilson’s critics.

    Calling the Liar in Chief a liar in the midst of his weaving a tapestry of lies and taking caffeine pills two years ago is not acceptable behavior to those same people.

    Wait – I’m sorry – heckling the President when speaking to Congress is OK when it’s a Republican. I forgot the rules changed again.

    So a question for those interested: is smoking cigarettes OK now? Obama smokes. Ask a doctor what he’d prefer you do if you had to choose – caffeine pills or cigarettes. Who is (and in Wilson’s case, was) being more irresponsible regarding their own health – Obama or some Congressman who you didn’t know existed until last night?

    Up is down, black is white, freedom is slavery, ignorance is bliss, yadda yadda.

    Rose — very nice tribute for the 9/11 anniversary–thank you. My son-in-law was in the Pentagon on 9/11 and thankfully was on the other side of the building when the plane hit. The whole family (our kids and their spouses and our grandkids) got together for dinner that night just so we could hug each other, share our grief and give our thanks that our Marine was safe.

    Troy — just finished listening to the video you posted on the last thread (took forever for it to stream with satellite internet and pouring rain — a bad combination). What do you make of what he said. Scared me!!!!

    Beck Suing Web Domain Over False Claims Of Rape And Murder
    September 10th, 2009 Posted By Erik Wong.

    Hugely popular conservative talker Glenn Beck has sicced his lawyers on a satirical website that’s been up for a week, but the attorneys may have a point on this one. The site, called glennbeckrapedandmurderedayounggirlin1990.com, toes the line on defamation—and may have stepped across it.

    When someone registers a domain like glennbeckrapedandmurderedayounggirlin1990.com, they probably expect to hear from Glenn Beck’s lawyers. In this case, it took two days. The site’s anonymous operator tells Ars that the whole thing is satire—but that may not be enough to avoid charges of defamation.

    I’ve mentioned my father here before. He immigrated to New York after World War II. He often told us kids of the great dangers of apathy in politics – the Nazi’s won his town through ideology and the liberal press. They invaded without a shot. He spent the war below decks of a supply ship never knowing what torpedo would hit.

    He loved New York and America. He work tirelessly to get us all out of that Brooklyn flat. More true an American you could not find. He never looked back – his patriotism was unyielding.

    My Dad was always in the best of health. he was never sick and had only been in the hospital for minor stuff. Late in the morning on Sept 11, 2001 while watching the horror on TV, I got a call that my father had doubled over in pain that morning while watching the towers burn. My mom and brother took him to the hospital. They never found out what killed him. But I know.

    Had he made it, he would be telling us all exactly where we are headed.

    Had he made it, I know he would be here with me on Saturday.

  30. cynkading Says:

    Rose, Katie, sdee, cj, jb, jrin, jrh, Ten, Troy, Grammy, you will never know how much all of you bless my heart. I know that I mainly lurk but I feel like I am the student just learning about the game of politics and all of you are the teachers. I am so blown away at how very intelligent all of you are and I am trying to keep up. I have learned so much over the past year and then I learned more than I really wanted to know about how things work. I think that this is a grand chess game to the PTB and that peoples lives really do not matter at all to them unless it is one of theirs. I am so proud of the spirit that just radiates from all of you through your words and your actions and wanted all of you to know my feelings.

    The morning of 9/11/01, I was living in Tepatitilan, Mexico and remember the phone ringing. My ex-husband’s wife called and told me the Twin Towers had been hit. I immediately went and turned on the TV and saw what she had just described to me over the phone. I have never felt such a sense of hopelessness in my life nor have I since. I immediately started trying to arrange to return back to the U.S. You see, everyone that I loved including my 2 daughters and grandbaby were back home. When I moved to Mexico my ex-husband would not give me permission to take our 8 year old out of the country. I had no choice but to leave her in Ar. My other daughter was grown and married.

    The U.S. immediately closed all the borders and would not let anyone come in or go out. I was not able to return until December. I literally fell apart. I thought if I could just get home then maybe I could do something to help. I became so depressed that I literally started pulling at my hair. My anger, anguish, guilt , helplessness overwhelmed me that the hair pulling became a compulsion. I started having bald patches and eventually I had no hair at all. This is a disease called Trichotillomania and is not very common. My breakdown continued for about 2 years after 9/11/09 and I still at times struggle with the impulse to pull at it. In other words, I do not choose to go down the medication and therapy route because I have been there. The good Lord has helped me to maintain. Btw, my pictures on my bio were recent and I have had hair for about 5 years.

  31. cynkading Says:

    I will lift all of you up in my prayers. Be safe!

  32. Katie Says:

    cynkading – sigh. I don’t quite know what to say.

    It’s very brave of you to share something so painful, and seems to me it makes you the teacher and us the students tonight.

    It also underscores that every American has a 9/11 story.

    Rose, thank you for the gift of this blog. The impact of having this safe place to be knows no bounds.

  33. Katie Says:

    Hehehe….cynka, I think that you may give us all too much credit….Well, I can’t speak for everyone, but I never paid much attention to politics until last year….I felt compelled to educate myself on the topic and what I learned about our constitution and government just so happened to be pretty upsetting….I have a feeling that some of the others here have a similar story to mine….We have all been doing the research and sharing with each other….I think that we all make a pretty good team!

    BTW, no more hair pulling!!!….You’re much too pretty to be sporting a “Telly Savalas”. 😉

    My stomach starts to churn around this time of year. Hard to sleep at night. By the time the 11th arrives I feel worn out. I wonder if it will get better as the years go by….. I have been through natural disasters in my life that affected me directly, suffered seizures and a coma because of an idiot doctor, plus many other traumas. 9/11 is the only one that haunts me.

    Pray for America. Pray for us.

  39. Troy Says:

    My 9/11 story is not nearly as compelling as the others here….I was simply visiting at one of my customers’ shop….One of his employees had a small TV in his work area and informed everybody that the tower had been hit by a plane….We all started watching and soon witnessed the second plane hit….I was already pretty sure, but instantly knew when the second one hit that it was intentional….We were all dumbfounded and I remember getting extremely mad and had an overwhelming urge to get myself armed and put a serious hurt on someone…There was no one around to dish out some revenge on and that was frustrating….I’m not normally a vengeful person, but on that day had a guilty party been available to me it would have been a really bad day for them….There was nothing for me to do except just helplessly watch it all unfold on a TV screen….That sucked!!!

  40. Tenacity Says:

    To of the Lovely Loon’s Gang,
    I believed we have passed second base. That’s where you have survived some friction in the relationship and come to trust one another. We have learned that this small group has a forgiving heart. To me, the greatest complement someone can pay is trusting with information that you wouldn’t dare share with someone that might use it against you or not forgive you. This is a place of good information, but more important is the sanctuary. A safe place where ideas are shared freely without the need of competition. By that I mean that your loss is my loss and your victory is mine as well. No need to have a winner and a loser. That’s really what God’s love is all about…the way we act with each other. Thank you all for being so trustworthy and trusting.

    Did I miss the fishing report?
    **************************
    I caught some nice fish, but worked hard for them….They weren’t exactly jumping in the boat….Flounder, trout, redfish and grey snapper

    Trou,
    When my kids were little I’d take them up the McKenzie River in Oregon (divorced & poor, but wanted them to have good fun and good childhood memories). We’d camp out in a tent, catch Chinook salmon and rainbow trout. Some of the best meals and best times I ever had

    The actor, Mike Myers often talks about times with his Dad. He referred to experiences like those as “no money fun”. I’ve never forgotten that, and parents shouldn’t either. Those are the memories children will always cherish…not the ‘stuff’ that parents may think is more important.

    My memories of 9-11. I woke up to the mess, and cried while I readied my kids for school. I was afraid to send them to school. I did anyway. I cried because my little world as I knew it was changed. The safety I felt was gone.

    then later that night, my life was changed forever. it was the first time my ex-husband decked me, giving me a mild concussion. all of this in front of our four children. that day and night, changed my life. changed everyone’s life in some way.

  72. jrinNC Says:

    I woke up this morning and came here first thing. I was out of the net for all of the evening and most of the night with an excruciating headache. I have read all the things everyone has written concerning 9/11. I remember it as if it were yesterday. I was at work and we always had a TV playing. One of the girls hollered out to come quick. We stood in total amazement, tears streaming down our faces as the morning progressed. We all lost 2 folks that we knew as they had worked for our unit in the Pentagon hit. We also had a procurement lady we knew who was in that same area. By God’s grace they had moved that dept to another building 3 weeks prior. Of course we did not know that until a month later. My biggest fears were realized more the next day – It took me 5 hours to travel 1 mile to get to work. Every vehicle was searched from top to bottom to get into work. Several others sat for over 7 hours and showed up at work at 5:00 pm. This continued for over a week and the times of delays were shortened each day. I know we were all awakened that day that this country was not safe either.

    Not since Pearl Harbor has America been stunned. My step-father was in Pearl Harbor on that infamous day. And he was on the USS Arizona. He jumped. Was in the water for hours. It was heartbreaking to here some of his story as he suffered tremendously emotionally over this and did not reveal much. He suffered from “shell shock.” He did have nightmares on occasion and would be withdrawn after that for several days. He has been dead now for almost 40 years as he died within 4 months of diagnosis of pancreatic cancer at the age of 48.

    Rose your tribute is very warming to my heart. I too have a wall in my office at home with pictures commemorating 9/11. Had them in my office for years and when I retired decorated my office with them and tributes to our country. Guess I have a patriotic office – all done in red, white, and blue. This is why this is all so hard on me — the destruction of our country — I have lived a life dedicated to this country.

    Again to everyone here – be safe in DC for those who are going. For all of us who can’t make it, lets keep the “HOME FIRES” burning.

    Rose, thanks for the tribute thread. This day needs to always be remembered.

    I can’t help thinking of the horrors that day.

    Imagine the firemen climbing the exhausting stairs knowing that they may well die that day, and indeed they did.

    Imagine the innocent workers in the burning floors who faced death by fire or by leaping to their deaths.

    Imagine the passengers on those planes who soon knew they would die that day.

    Imagine all those who are charged with keeping us free from such a disaster knowing they had failed.

    But we don’t have to use our imaginations to know that the evil sorts who did this will continue to work toward doing it again.

    We must remember, be sorrowful, AND be angry enough to have the resolve to root out this enemy and kill their evil intents.

    1. Judge Carter is ‘giving her expedited discovery – immediately’.

    2. Judge Land will allow her to present before the court in GA. She is leaving now to fly to GA to appear before Judge Land at the Federal Building in Columbus, GA at 2:00 pm tomorrow (Friday, 9/11/09).

    She would like as many military supporters to be there as possible. I called Carl Swensson (RiseUpForAmerica.com), and he will see what he can do. If you have any contacts there, please advise them.

    My 9-11 story is one of thankfulness. I was on the way home from work and heard on the car radio that a plane had hit the tower. Since I knew a friend of my dauthers worked there I got home and woke her up and we watched. When the second plane hit, we were frantic to know about Courtney. Later we learned, she had just gotten to work and was opening the blinds in her office. She noticed some debris flying around outside and wondered what it was. Heard an announcement that a small plane had crashed into the other tower, not to worry, stay put. She wanted no part of that and immediately left and started down the stairs. Many others were with her so it was slow going. Half way down they felt the building shake. Not knowing that another plane had hit their tower, they continued down. She got out, saw things whe wouldn’t talk about and ran down the street and didn’t stop for a long way. We knew nothing for most of the day and then found out she was ok. A daughter of my husband’s best friend had gone to NY for a meeting being held at the Trade center. They too got out, but she was traumatized for a year and still has issues. So we were lucky and blessed that people we knew had been saved. Such a horrific event and one I will never truly get over. It makes my determination to keep my country safe and free all the more important.

    http://www.jewishworldreview.com/cols/jonah091109.php3

    Then, there’s Scenario B: An ambitious and extremely clever politician, who has at best been selectively forthcoming about large chunks of his youth, lied about his place of birth so he could be eligible for the presidency.

    To further this scheme, he has arranged for the full and/or original version of his birth certificate to remain under lock and key. At most, a handful of supporters and lawyers are in on the whole thing.

    Now, which one is more believable? For the record, I don’t believe either. But it seems to me the “birther” hypothesis is vastly more plausible than the “truther” hypothesis. Politicians lie to advance their careers. You can look it up. Whole governments rarely orchestrate incredibly complex acts of physics, logistics and mass murder all the while pinning guilt on others (who boast that they acted alone).

    “Chasing after conspiracies along with Berg, the API and an assortment of other frauds is not all that productive and puts you in the same camp with the nut jobs who think that Bush and Cheney were responsible for the Attack on the WTC.”

    I really take offense at that statement.

    You are equating the possibility that Obama may have lied about his birthplace with the possibility that George W Bush killed 3,000 of his fellow citizens.

  115. rosettasister Says:

    I don’t know why but remembering JAC got me to thinking about the Catholic mass and then I stumbled upon the following:

    Is the New English Version of the Mass a Betrayal of Vatican II?

    http://clericalwhispers.blogspot.com/2009/09/is-new-english-version-of-mass-betrayal.html

    Let us now look at some of the major changes that will involve both priests and the congregation. There are many annoying word changes that affect the celebrant rather than the people, but firstly I will only highlight the major ones that impinge on the whole congregation as we work through each part of the Mass.

    Catholics will be pulled up short right at the commencement of Mass if the priest uses the greeting ‘The Lord be with you’, because the new response is ‘And with your spirit’ replacing ‘And also with you’.

    Of course this is a literal translation of Et cum spiritu tuo but it is meaningless in modern English. What precisely is ‘your spirit’ in this context? It sounds almost ‘new age’ or like the psychobabble condemned in LA. Since this response recurs several times throughout the Mass people are going to be constantly struggling with ‘And with your spirit’.

    ***

    Anyway, The Lord be with you, JAC!

    And I don’t care what anyone says, I will continue to respond ‘And also with you.’

    That exchange was a part of the mass that I always liked.

    I had forgotten all of this. Do you remember when the senators were giving Ollie North such a bad time? This brings it all into perspective doesn’t it? Have a great day.
    ________________________________________

    Do you remember 1987…….

    Thought you might be interested in this forgotten bit of information……….

    It was 1987! At a lecture the other day they were playing an old news video of Lt.Col. Oliver North testifying at the Iran-Contra hearings during the Reagan Administration.

    There was Ollie in front of God and country getting the third degree, but what he said was stunning!

    He was being drilled by a senator; ‘Did you not recently spend close to $60,000 for a home security system?’

    Ollie replied, ‘Yes, I did, Sir.’

    The senator continued, trying to get a laugh out of the audience,
    ‘Isn’t that just a little excessive?’

    ‘No, sir,’ continued Ollie.

    ‘No? And why not?’ the senator asked.

    ‘Because the lives of my family and I were threatened, sir.’

    ‘Threatened? By whom?’ the senator questioned.

    ‘By a terrorist, sir’ Ollie answered.

    ‘Terrorist? What terrorist could possibly scare you that much?’

    ‘His name is Osama bin Laden, sir’ Ollie replied.

    At this point the senator tried to repeat the name, but couldn’t pronounce it, which most people back then probably couldn’t.. A couple
    of people laughed at the attempt. Then the senator continued.. Why are you so afraid of this man?’ the senator asked.

    ‘Because, sir, he is the most evil person alive that I know of’, Ollie answered.

    ‘And what do you recommend we do about him?’ asked the senator.

    ‘Well, sir, if it was up to me, I would recommend that an assassin team be formed to eliminate him and his men from the face of the earth.’

    The senator disagreed with this approach, and that was all that was shown of the clip.

    By the way, that senator was Al Gore!

    Also:

    Terrorist pilot Mohammad Atta blew up a bus in Israel in 1986. The Israelis captured, tried and imprisoned him. As part of the
    Oslo agreement with the Palestinians in 1993, Israel had to agree to release so-called ‘political prisoners.’

    However, the Israelis would not release any with blood on their hands, The American President at the time, Bill Clinton,
    and his Secretary of State, Warren Christopher, ‘insisted’ that all prisoners be released.

    Thus Mohammad Atta was freed and eventually thanked us by flying an airplane into Tower One of the World Trade Center .

    This was reported by many of the American TV networks at the time that the terrorists were first identified.

    It was censored in the US from all later reports.

    If you agree that the American public should be made aware of this fact, pass this on.

    EXCERPT

    HH: Mark Steyn, he closed with an evocation of Ted Kennedy, and the character of America.

    And I thought to myself, he must really be in a bubble if he believes that that kind of an argument is going to succeed with the vast majority of Americans, who whether or not they are liberal or conservative, understand Ted Kennedy to be other than their shining example of American character.

    MS: Yes. Basically, everybody who likes Ted Kennedy is already on board with this plan.

    Ted Kennedy, the idea that Ted Kennedy, who is one of the most controversial and divisive figures in American politics…

    HH: Yup.

    MS: …is going to posthumously reunite the country in a bipartisan stampede toward government health care is preposterous.

    Now you say the President must be really in a bubble, and I think to a certain extent, he is.

    He and his advisors, as Peggy Noonan wrote a few days ago, are generally young and to some extent, they lack a kind of wise, old bird among them to counsel caution, if you like.

    But I think actually in some ways, that’s their advantage, that if they’re young and ruthless and determined enough to ram this thing down the throats of America in some form or other, they may get away with it.

    And Karl Rove was positing that scenario in the Wall Street Journal today, and saying it would be a huge mistake.

    I agree with Karl up to a point. I think that is what Obama is considering, but it may not be a mistake. He may just pull it off.

    He may be prepared to take the hit in 2010, and ram this thing through, and change the American political landscape forever.

    (Well, perhaps. “ram this thing through” What “thing” exactly? Surely not the public “option.” I still don’t believe that will inevitably happen, nor do I believe a public “option” can pass without 60 votes, so we go from the improbable to the impossible.)

    HH: I think you’re right.

    It will come down to whether or not there are enough Democrats who will lemming-like go over the cliff for the benefit of President Obama’s vision for America.

    And that remains to be seen.

    EXCERPT

    HH: Congressman, what were you thinking? I mean, what led up to your calling out at the President?

    JW: What was I thinking, Hugh, is that I was sitting there, and I heard something that was just not accurate at all.

    And I just, and I didn’t snap, because if I’d snapped, I would have kept on objecting.

    But I just heard something, Hugh, that I knew was not correct, it was being misstated, and I knew the facts about the amendments that had been defeated.

    (Sometimes I wonder if Obama even has a clue what is in these bills, because he just keeps repeating the same talking points like a broken record even though much of what he’s saying has already been disproven.)

    HH: Let’s conclude, Joe Wilson, what do you think of President Obama as a person?

    JW: Well, I’ve never made this personal. In fact, Hugh, I had town hall meetings ranging from 1,200 to 1,700 people.

    A lot of the criticisms I got at the town halls is that I never mentioned his name.

    I would talk about the administration, I would talk about the bill.

    But this is not personal, and I do not mean for it ever to be personal.

    This is my concern about the growth of big government, and how it will have a gruesome impact on the American people.

    About the Bush tax cuts …

    http://blogs.reuters.com/james-pethokoukis/2009/09/11/about-the-bush-tax-cuts/

    Every tax rate was reduced.

    Now, about half of the dollar savings from the tax cuts went to the top 10% of taxpayers

    (when you include various credits and other tax changes included as part of the packages),

    but that’s probably because the top 10% pay over 70% of all income taxes.

    Those on the left side of the aisle may disagree with that approach to tax cuts, preferring targeted relief for lower-income individuals, but it’s disingenuous to say that the 2001-03 tax cuts only went to “the wealthiest few.”

    9. Atmospheric Engineering — modifying Earth’s biosphere to keep it hospitable to Humans in the face of an ice age or global warming;

    http://blogs.reuters.com/james-pethokoukis/2009/09/11/a-case-for-long-term-high-unemployment-in-america/

    Even today it’s a piece he’s proud of: “Ah, yeah, the hysteresis article,” he interjects when it’s mentioned.

    Hysteresis is a word that you (and the rest of us) should hope we don’t hear too much of in the coming months.

    It comes from the Greek husteros, which means late.

    It refers to what happens when something snaps in such a way that it can never be put back together.

    Bend a plastic ruler too far, drop that lightbulb — that cracking sound you hear is the marker of hysteresis.

    There’s no way to restore what has just been smashed.

    Inflate away the debt? Yes, that is a stupid idea …

    http://blogs.reuters.com/james-pethokoukis/2009/09/11/inflate-away-the-debt-yes-that-is-a-stupid-idea/

    Although it is thought that inflation is an effective way of
    reducing the burden of debt, this is no longer true.

    For one thing, a declining portion of the debt is financed with long-term securities.

    Today, just 3% of the debt consists of bonds with maturities of 20
    years or more; 10 years ago, the proportion was four times greater.

    To the extent that the debt consists of short-term securities that must
    constantly be rolled over, inflation does nothing to erode its value
    because interest rates just rise to compensate, raising interest
    payments and borrowing, thus maintaining the real value of the debt.

    Inflation will also cause the dollar to fall on international markets, which will cause foreigners to dump their bonds.

    With foreigners now owning more than 50% of the privately held debt, this may force the Treasury to issue foreign currency denominated bonds.

    At this point, our finances will effectively be controlled by foreigners and the International Monetary Fund (IMF), just like Third World countries.

    No one knows the point at which debt becomes unsustainable.

    According to an IMF report, the critical point is when a government is borrowing just to pay interest on the debt.

    According to the CBO, we will reach that point in 2019 when the federal government is expected to borrow $722 billion and its net interest expense will also be $722 billion.

    (This cannot be! We cannot allow this to happen!)

    Exclusive: September 11, 2009

    9/11: Elephants Remember, Jackasses Forget

    By: Brandon Vallorani

    Can you believe that eight years have passed since the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001? Most Americans remember exactly where they were and what they were doing when the news of the attacks broke. For a short time, Americans forgot what divided them and came together with a renewed sense of patriotism and faith. American flags flew across the nation and churches were filled with people looking to God for answers. America, under the leadership of President George W. Bush, began to fight back against international terrorism.

    Over time, however, life got back to “normal” and people forgot what we were fighting for. The mainstream media, run by wealthy elitist Democrats, undermined the efforts of our troops to keep the tragedy of 9/11 from ever happening here again. As the political winds shifted, Democratic senators and congressmen who voted to support President Bush on the War on Terror, quickly turned their backs on their country for a chance to regain power in Washington.

    Today, our Democrat president has promised to release terrorists from GITMO (the detention center at U.S. Naval Base Guantanamo Bay). He’s also traveled the globe apologizing for America to nations that have harbored terrorists and that hate our way of life. During Obama’s campaign for President, his wife admitted that she was not proud of her country most of her adult life. Do the Democrats realize that the freedom to criticize our great nation was guaranteed by the blood of our brave soldiers over the past 233 years?

    Rather than remembering our fellow citizens who lost their lives on 9/11, BarackObama.com recently featured an article encouraging supporters to celebrate 9/11 as “Health Care Organizing Day.”

    Click to enlarge
    Even worse, the article went on urging Obama’s supporters to make phone calls on 9-11 to fight back against “Right-Wing Domestic Terrorists.” Here’s an excerpt:

    All 50 States are coordinating in this — as we fight back against our own Right-Wing Domestic Terrorists who are subverting the American Democratic Process, whipped into a frenzy by their Fox Propaganda Network ceaselessly re-seizing power for their treacherous leaders.

    Thanks to the efforts of The Heritage Foundation for exposing what Obama and his team were doing, the web page shown at right was deleted (click to enlarge).

    While I am not always happy with members of the Republican Party, especially turncoats like Arlen Specter and Tom Ridge, the party as a whole loves America and will never forget 9/11. I am convinced, however, that extreme leftwing elements of the Democratic Party have forgotten and have led many of our citizens to believe that we are the bad guys, not the terrorists.

    One of my favorite songs is performed by Country Music Artist, Darrel Worley. As we remember this day, please pray for the families who lost love ones in the terror attacks and soldiers in the War on Terror. Then, take a moment to read the words of “Have you forgotten:”

    I hear people saying we don’t need this war
    But, I say there’s some things worth fighting for
    What about our freedom and this piece of ground
    We didn’t get to keep ’em by backing down
    They say we don’t realize the mess we’re getting in
    Before you start your preaching let me ask you this my friend

    Have you forgotten how it felt that day?
    To see your homeland under fire
    And her people blown away
    Have you forgotten when those towers fell?
    We had neighbors still inside going thru a living hell
    And you say we shouldn’t worry ’bout bin Laden
    Have you forgotten?

    They took all the footage off my T.V.
    Said it’s too disturbing for you and me
    It’ll just breed anger that’s what the experts say
    If it was up to me I’d show it everyday
    Some say this country’s just out looking for a fight
    Well, after 9/11 man I’d have to say that’s right

    Have you forgotten how it felt that day?
    To see your homeland under fire
    And her people blown away
    Have you forgotten when those towers fell?
    We had neighbors still inside going thru a living hell
    And we vowed to get the one’s behind bin Laden
    Have you forgotten?

    I’ve been there with the soldiers
    Who’ve gone away to war
    And you can bet that they remember
    Just what they’re fighting for

    Have you forgotten all the people killed?
    Yeah, some went down like heroes in that Pennsylvania field
    Have you forgotten about our Pentagon?
    All the loved ones that we lost and those left to carry on
    Don’t you tell me not to worry about bin Laden
    Have you forgotten?

    Have you forgotten?
    Have you forgotten?

    A Lefty Perspective

    The Final Sprint for Health Care Has Now Begun, and Where the White House is Placing Its Bets

    http://robertreich.blogspot.com/2009/09/final-sprint-for-health-care-has-now.html

    The President was careful to note that a public option is only a means to an end and he remained open to other ideas (read: Conrad’s cooperatives or Snowe’s trigger).

    The speech included nothing about Medicare bargaining leverage, thereby letting the drug deal stand.

    The President clearly sided with Senate Finance on the funding mechanism of a tax or fee on high-end insurance rather than a surtax on the wealthy.

    And his promise to limit the costs of universal coverage to $900 billion put the President directly in league with the Senate Finance Committee rather than than the House, whose bill is projected to cost more than $1 trillion.

    The Dem leadership got the message.

    (Oh, please, Mr. Reich. They’ve known all along.)

    Yesterday, Senate majority leader Harry Reid said that while he favored a strong public option, he could be satisfied with establishment of nonprofit cooperatives.

    And Nancy Pelosi, who as recently as two weeks ago said the House would not support a bill that didn’t include a public option, passed up a chance to say it was a nonnegotiable demand.

    When pressed, she said that as long as legislation makes quality health care more accessible and affordable, “we will go forward with that bill.”

    How about a trigger for coops?!

    Honestly, what I like about coops is they are not – for – profit.

    My understanding is that some big “private” insurers are already not – for – profit or at least don’t strive for profits.

    I don’t understand this fully, but it seems to me that if we’re going for universal coverage or something close to that and we eliminate insurers not insuring “pre-existing” conditions …

    then private insurers will have to be not so profitable.

    If you’re invested in a private health insurer, you may want to consider investing in nanotechnology instead.

    2) He tells his ‘minions’ to come up with a plan.
    3) The dark minions say, “Hey boss, let’s blow up a couple of important buildings, the Pentagon and the White House!”

    cynkading,
    9-11 truth is difficult to ascertain. 2 things we know: There were explosives in that building and there was advance knowledge. The former fact was determined by chemical traces found at the site and the opinion of many explosives experts and engineers that observed the films of the buildings collapse. The latter fact based upon testimony of numerous people that had direct and indirect knowledge. I for one do not buy the conspiracy as laid out above, but recognize that there may be several scenarios where the Bush Administration may have been complicit. Remember that the Patriot Act came out of 9-11 as well as other globalist agenda that was facilitated.

    Yesterday I met with the New Hampshire Secretary of State, William Gardner.
    The issue was the questionable citizenship of Barack Obama and, therefore,
    his right to be President of the United States.

    I told Mr. Gardner that there was controversy over Obama’s citizenship and
    that I thought, therefore, that there should be an investigation of the
    issue. All candidates are required to submit certain documents in order to
    run for election in New Hampshire and one of them certifies you eligibility.
    I presented the Secretary of State with two birth certificates from Kenya
    saying that Mr. Obama was born there. He asked me if I thought they were
    genuine. I replied that I did not know, but there was certainly enough
    controversy to begin an investigation. The people who would start this
    investigation were out of the office yesterday, but Mr. Gardner assured me
    that they would investigate. He has my email address and telephone numbers
    and he said he would keep me informed.

    Ten,
    What I posted earlier is not my opinion but that of someone else along with the link. I for one do not want to think that Bush was complicit or negligent about what he knew or when but we may never know for sure. There are some definite grey areas and many unanswered questions. I don’t think he is without fault by any means. I am not taking up for him because he did make some mistakes and did not act on some things as he should. He is part of the problem that we find ourselves and he is a part of the globalists.

    People were so different right after that. Everyone was more courteous and polite. There was more altruism everywhere. When I looked into a strangers eyes, there was a connection. A surreal, unspoken knowing — that the miles didn’t matter — that from sea to shining sea, we all shared an indescribable, faint, lingering astonishment — the pain of a still tender hidden wound…. and mixed in with that silent grief, …. I saw love there too.

    In those glances, we realized we have a bond. An American bond. A family bond. None of our differences matter. The only thing that mattered now was that someone hurt Our family!

    Did anyone else feel it? Was it imaginary? I’d really like to know.
