God will punish us if we ever forget the innocent people in these planes and buildings.
Two years ago, TheOne signed into law a remaking of this day into a National Day of Service. 3000 people died and we are supposed to recognize this as a day of service? Is that some kind of sick joke?
His plan was to “erase this day from our psyche” and remake it into something that makes no sense to Americans who need to grieve, who need to remember. It was just one of the many despicable things, but probably the most despicable, that this man has done since he took over the WH.
Now, today we have Obama’s cheerleader in chief, Paul Krugman in the NYT say that 9/11 has become “an occassion for [national] shame.”
What happened after 9/11 — and I think even people on the right know this, whether they admit it or not — was deeply shameful. T[h]e atrocity should have been a unifying event, but instead it became a wedge issue. Fake heroes like Bernie Kerik, Rudy Giuliani, and, yes, George W. Bush raced to cash in on the horror. And then the attack was used to justify an unrelated war the neocons wanted to fight, for all the wrong reasons.
Shame on him. Shame on his president.
This day will forever be a day of mourning for Americans, no matter what they try to do or what they say about it.
We will never forget.
It would be good to read or reread the American Spectator column by Matthew Vadum in 2009. I linked to it above. This is a walk down memory lane from only 2 years ago and it was shades of things to come from this WH, as well.

The Obama administration is so out to lunch it is unbelievable. We have not forgotten! We will never forget! Obama and his rejects can spin it any way they like but the FACTS remain. He and his Muslim brothers can go to hell !!

You know Rob, Obama got great push back from the American people when he tried to “transform” this day, 2 years ago.
He and his commie cronies (like Van Jones, who is really not gone from his regime) didn’t win then, but they will attempt to try this again. Especially if he gets a second term.

People will always find fault where it doesn’t belong and distort facts to their own political gain. But most Americans honor this day for what it is–a remembrance of all who died and a resolve to never let them win.
(on a side note, I see you have an Etsy site–how cool. I will visit–I love clicking on etsy.com!)

etsy- cool and thanks for checking it out!
As far as 9/11 goes – I agree with you!

I think the gist of Mr. Krugman’s piece was he feels Bush, Obama and a multitude of others benefitted from this tragic event. And for them to show up at the memorial services is shameful. On that, sad to say, I agree with him.
Krugman is driven by his hatred for conservatives. Just like some bloggers are driven by their disdain for Islam and Muslims.
Well, you know where I stand on all this stuff Roxy.
I think blame should be placed where blame is due for 9/11/2001. As much as I’d like to place full bame on the Muslims, I can’t do it. The master craftsmen were not Muslims; in my humble opinion.

Correct me if I’m wrong, S but you believe that 9/11 was a government conspiracy, don’t you?
This is one place where you and I part the street, if I’m correct.
September 11th, 2011 at 2:30 PM
A conspiracy no. An act coordinated by some in our government, yes is my humble but adamant reply.
September 11th, 2011 at 6:40 PM
Okay – call it what you want.
I was pretty sure that this was a topic we would have to agree to disagree on.

Yes ma’am. No problem.
