FarkedOver: OHHHH WHO FARKING CARES!? This shiat has been all over my newsfeed by concerned assholes. Get the fark over it.


What he said. 12 years ago a bunch of mentally unstable extremists killed themselves flying planes into buildings. Then WE spent the next 10 years bombing people who weren't even involved, half the world away, in the name of patriotism. Want to have a moment of silence for something? How about thinking of the 300k poor schmucks who were killed for being brown within 1,500 miles of where some of the hijackers may have lived.

Is it me or does it read like no one actually there panicked or was alarmed, but the airport posted a notice on facebook informing people of their plans, and people, far away people, uninvolved people, said "this concerns me", and "as a mother I find this troubling", or "this is offensive!"?

I hate people who do that.

MFAWG: Is there a MORE appropriate day?


No.

In fact, that's the perfect way to remember 9/11/01- use the anniversary to run through mass casualty and similar scenarios that illustrate the value of trained, professional first responders.

...why not? Because people might be reminded of the thing that they've obviously already been thinking about all day? Or is it because people might think "ZOMG! TURRIST ATTACK!" when done today, but tomorrow they'd see smoke billowing from an airport and only think "Meh, must be an exercise"?

If you are this easily panicked by the world, just stay home with the blinds drawn and the TV off.

Yes, Boston suffered so horribly that day. So many people's views of Logan Airport from their apartments were forever tarnished.

Can we get an Air Force one flyby over Manhattan today as well?
