iivel: Popcorn Johnny: Lando Lincoln: OMG WHY DO NO TV NETWORKS GIVE A MOMENT OF SILENCE EVERY DECEMBER 7TH AT 7:53AM HDT?Because the Germans are our buddies and we've forgiven them for the whole bombing Pearl Harbor thing.The Germans?
I wanna bigger than Jesus and bigger than wrestlingBigger than the Beatles and bigger than breast implantsI'm gonna be the biggest thing to hit these little kidsBigger than guns, bigger than cigarettes
joeflood: Industrial paper accidents are more deadly than terrorism. So remember that next time you wipe.
Gig103: Good for NBC. A moment of silence is enough to get people to flip channels. If they land on NBC before they get to the cable networks, they might stay.
CygnusDarius: It was during the First world war. When America Invaded Mexico and Japan attacked Poland.

farkityfarker: The US news media is New York based, biased, and centered.So obviously they're more sensitive about 9/11 than the country as a whole.
thamike: farkityfarker: The US news media is New York based, biased, and centered.So obviously they're more sensitive about 9/11 than the country as a whole.Funny, the people I notice going on and on about 9/11/AMERIKUH!/NEVARFARGET/PATRIOJIZM are the same people who think NYC should be obliterated because of snootiness, business, Jewishness, or otherwise. And none of them have ever spent any time there, nor do they live anywhere near a target rich environment. They also seem to forget about the Pentagon and United 93 more than New Yorkers do. Two that I know personally had a bunch of armchair hero comments about 93, and neither of them have ever been on an airliner.[lh3.googleusercontent.com image 320x240]
scotchcrotch: Kris Jenner vs 9/11Both national disasters involving male Arabics supporting murder.
kidsizedcoffin: You'd be pretty pissed off too if you had to go to the bathroom after drinking all that crab juice, and then had your car booted
ghare: dennysgod: You'll get over it.Let see how many networks go silent at 12:48pm on Dec 7.Wait, let me guess, last year it was every one, right?
The Homer Tax: What sane person gives a shiat?

Mytch: Being patriotic is like being religious. If you want to be, that's great. If you go around trying to shame other people for not being as patriotic as you, then you're an arsehole.
Refudiated Strategerist: ghare: dennysgod: You'll get over it.Let see how many networks go silent at 12:48pm on Dec 7.Wait, let me guess, last year it was every one, right?And back further to the Civil War...look at the Gettysburg Address which is pretty much the first "never forget" for us. Yet today we have a chunk of the population that believes that the Civil War was wrong, that the states rights battle was not settled, that slavery was OK for the economy at that time. And the talk of secession has not been greater since the 1850s.Apparently we forgot. And most folks can't begin to tell you when the Civil War ended...Or the War to end all wars or even WW2 for all that. We tend to forget everything that is not of our own generation, which we seem to deem more special and important than all others.
Gunny Highway: The Homer Tax: What sane person gives a shiat?I dont think anyone is upset but you dont find it curious at all? Why would they do that?I think I would have the same "what were they thinking?" reaction if they had Paris Hilton talking about her new merkin instead of going to the president at a memorial for the Oklahoma City Bombing.It isnt rage worthy, it is just really strange.There is some major 9/11 backlash in this thread. Where does it come from? Why is everyone so ho hum about it?
mc_madness: 9/11 is OLD NEWS. I'd rather listen about an old woman's tit job any day.fark this "Oh Woe is me" 9/11 reflection bullshiat. MOre tits please.
HotWingConspiracy: They kept it up for a decade. It's ok to be done with it.A nice list of everything else we've moved on from.Remembah the Great Texas School Explosion of '37!
FarkKing: How long were these moments of silence? 1 minute? 3 minutes? 5 minutes? ... I'm sorry, but if we need to stop talking about boobs for more than a few seconds, the terrorists have already won./boobs
