toonz: big deal. the quote wasn't 100% true. I mistakenly thought it was. when I realized it wasn't I posted the actual quote.

And on the off chance that you're actually telling the truth that you didn't know it was a fake quote - consider, then, why I called you on it. IF you truly didn't know, maybe there are other people reading it who also didn't know. And now you do, and maybe they do. Maybe in the future you'll stick to logic and facts rather than bullshiat, which will make your points have a chance to be heard. When you post a well-known lie, your credibility is zero. If you'd use facts and a logical approach, you might actually convince someone your point of view has any validity at all.

You're welcome.

Americans act like THEY are the only ones in the World who have ever had to suffer. shows how ignorant and sef-centered they are. i'm too tired of hearing about 911. We Americans need to move on. 46,000 Americans died in car crashes last year. where are your Crocodile tears now?????

i was over 9/11/01 on about 9/15/01. it still amazes me that the little farming town that i was living in had people convinced that the terrorist were going to attack their corn fields.


by the way to the people wanting to attack the US, next time do us a big favor and aim south, we are still regretting not killing every last one of them in the civil war.

No. But claiming Bush doesn't care about Laden and backing it up by misquoting a press conference seems to lean in that direction.

I will never forget 9/11. My uncle worked for the Pentagon, was late for work that day, and missed several of his colleagues get killed by the American Airlines flight. It was one of the most surreal, horrific days of my life, not knowing who was among the living...

Those of you retards who believe it was a missile, or a cover-up, or anything other than the simple fact that flight 77 was hijacked and crashed into the pentagon, deserve nothing less than a push down a long flight of stairs. You are unworthy of oxygen.

2008-09-08 05:35:04 PM
Can'tLetYouDoThatStarFox: Why do people place so much emphasis and sentimentality upon recurring dates? Dates are just a function of the mechanics of our solar system and calendar. It's not like the terrorist attack on that day or any other isolated event is actually cyclical and needs to be remembered every year at a specific time or the universe will end. Why is 9/11/2008 a better day for reflection than any other day of the year, such as 9/12/2008? There's no actual relationship. Has it become so attenuated that you need to be reminded by a mnemonic device inherent in the calendar once each year? Why not remember it every day at 9:12AM if it's so blatantly arbitrary? You know, you don't have to obsess over something on a certain day just because it gets television coverage and everybody around you is doing the same thing. You have a choice to be an individual. Some societal ceremonies are good and some of them are just stupid. If you can detach yourself from the emotional aspects of the events, you may realize that this practice is one of them.

This. Was just telling my fiance the other day how it was also one of the most eye-opening days of my life. Just to see how people in NYC treated each other ( like people for once ) was enough to restore my faith in humanity. Of course, all was back to normal by Halloween at the latest but it was nice while it lasted.

9-11: It's the day after my birthday. I passed by the Towers that day and thought "Man, I should make it a point to go to the top of these frickin' buildings one of these days!".

9-11: It's my dad's birthday.

9-11: Fall's on the same week that my dad passed away (9/16/01).

Only a bad case of amnesia or my death can make me forget that horrible week.

What annoys me is that people over there act as though Americans were the only ones killed. Yes, it was an attack on US soil and most of the people who died were Americans. But, it wasn't called the World Trade Center for nothing. People from over 90 countries - including peaceful Muslim countries - were killed and yet their deaths are used as propaganda fodder to further support for more death. That's truly sad.

It's also slightly annoying that some Americans seem to act as if nobody else has ever suffered terrorism and that violence and restricting rights are the only ways to retaliate. The WTC was the most visible terrorist target in history, but hardly the only one, and many countries have managed to overcome terrorists without resorting to these tactics. It's just that the others weren't in America so were somehow less significant to some people.

THE PRESIDENT: " Well, as I say, we haven't heard much from him. And I wouldn't necessarily say he's at the center of any command structure. And, again, I don't know where he is. I -- I'll repeat what I said. I truly am not that concerned about him. I know he is on the run. I was concerned about him, when he had taken over a country. I was concerned about the fact that he was basically running Afghanistan and calling the shots for the Taliban. "

Then he pulls troops out to go on his quaint Iraq expedition, the Taliban (possibly under at least some direction of Bin Laden) seizes strongholds, and you're concerned about what I say, because you can call me out for a snark on a technicality?

nifty.

when my lies cause untold thousands of needless deaths maybe they'll be okay with you? You sexy, sexy freedom-defender you!

lunkerslaire

That is the best point all day - say what you want! However when you do eventually get your ass kicked up and down the street for pissing off someone who was hurt from 9/11 don't come crawling back here whining and crying like a little biatch.


Seems like the same method the terrorists use: "USA is taking our oil/women/culture/whatever and that is hurting our feelings, let's kick their ass by hijacking planes and fly them into buildings". farking idiots.
Yes, 9/11 was a tragedy, but get farking over it. 3000 people out of 300.000.000, I think you can cope. Go to Darfur to see some REAL tragedy.
USA wasted all the goodwill it got after 9/11, and now you (your government) is worse off than before. The terrorists plan worked 100%, you IDIOTS played it right into their lap. The masterminds are probably laughing their ass off thinking how predictable USA government was. Like kicking a stupid red-neck hillbilly.

Grief, but go on living.

mister aj: Be aware though that Klukkers don't like to play fair. You might be a tough mofo, but that pale white dude you just yelled at? Once you're gone, he'll be phoning up all his confederate buddies to chase you home in their clapped-out pickup truck.

People in the South are not at all intimidated by the "angry black man" bullshiat like Drox likes to play here on Fark. Consequently, the races show each other more respect than you see in big cities in the North and West.

Yeah, you know what, so was I.

Could this possibly at least be some gut feeling on your part?

First we were talking about the misquoting, then we were talking about the lack of proof that our search for Laden has been undermined by Bush's agenda. Now we appear to just be back to everything Bush does is wrong. I'd like to keep running this whirlwind of a discussion with you but it appears to be going nowhere.

City bureaucracy, sure. However, you'd be extremely hard pressed to find a New Yorker who'd say they didn't care about 9/11. Unless they were some disaffected Brooklyn hipster douchebag. Unfortunately, judging by this board, this fine country is lousy with disaffected Brooklyn hipster douchebags.

I read a study once in which economists figured out how much different people of the world were implicitly worth to the average American in monetary terms, meaning how much money they would theoretically be willing to spend from the federal budget to prevent the death of an individual from that part of the world. African lives cost about $100 each, Asian lives were around $1000 each, and American lives were the highest at a few million dollars each, if I remember correctly. European lives were a bit less.
