I doubt there is a nozzle big enough for you BP.
:laugh2: Oh...you got me on that one.
But I got a fire hose enema for you.:
Not big enough. I have worked for the government for too many years for something that small to make an impression anymore.
That's why I don't like you...you complain about government spending and insurance programs but we are all paying your wages, insurance and making government bigger by employing you.
You will burn for this fake conservative...BURN I tell you. :
Just like most everything else this jerk and his sycophants have done, there is always something else than what is on the surface.
Cash for clunkers was suppose to be about stimulating the economy, but it was a farce as it was only to make people move to smaller, more dangerous cars.
This is just another of the same thing.
And those that can't see it are blind and they need our pity.
What are you talking about? I am talking about the nut job racist Islamic fundamentalist that want you to die. Not Islam as a religion. You and I have had this discussion before. None of us should forget why they attacked us. It is the same reason they are attacking and killing people all over the world. It is in the name of their religion. However they wish to pervert their religion is up to them, but is does not take a way from the fact that they are killing because they believe their religion justifies it.
Those who wish to forget history are doomed to repeat it. You know that. Not recognizing who and why we were attacked is akin to forgetting the Japanese attack on pearl harbor and the rise of the Nazis. You can't just pretend it did not happen.
There is a difference between forgetting history and doing something good as a nation together to help overcome a tragedy.
This excuse that just because people want to have a volunteer day (all the way back to 2003 including relatives of those lost in the event), means that we are forgetting or dishonoring a memory of a tragedy is just silly grandstanding IMO.
It was a defining moment that brought the country together as a whole even if it was just for a short time and IMO any time you can get people to come together to volunteer their time to help others is a good thing and we could use more of it. But now days too many people are to darn selfish or bullheaded and try to turn it into political BS.
But you keep on thinking it is only to besmirch the memories of those who died and to belittle something in someway...if that makes you feel better or that it will mean people will forget what happened on 9/11.
You are wrong, but that is OK. In America we are allowed our opinions. Unless you turn me in to the SS.
There have been numerous reports that this is an effort by the administration to shift the focus and perceived benefit the republicans have from thier strong position on national defense into something they Dems can use for political gain.
Yes numerous reports from right wing sites...because it is that socialist Obama doing everything he can to raise the islamic people and besmirch the victims of 9/11.
Yes...it is all to take away from national defense.
Finally, you are catching on.
On Pearl Harbor day we don't give out Valentines...Or do you want to make that "buy a honda day"
Memorial Days Sales anyone?
On Pearl Harbor day we bemoan the existence of the Japanese people?
Man, I love this guy.
Anyway, you were asking about the connection between 9/11 and a day of service. The connection that people, including the 9/11 families, are making is in the way that the country came together in the wake of the attacks, particularly people who came from all over to work and volunteer at ground zero. They want to commemorate how Americans responded to the attacks.
Seems like they have sales for almost any day...lol.
I have explained this several times and TheCount understands that when I use the term Islam in a negative connotation it is short hand for nut job racist Islamic fundamentalist that want you to die. That is very long to write out each and every time the topic comes up. Hope that clarifies it for you.
I could be wrong but it seems Labor Day, Memorial Day and Thanksgiving day sales are the big sales days (well the day after and so on).
I am always amazed at how many people leave home in the wee hours of the morning to "beat the crowds" only to be in the middle of the crowds...esp the day after thanksgiving.
I'm surprised that people are surprised. Makes perfect sense coming from a man who believes that the root of 9/11 jihadi terror stems from "a fundamental absence of empathy on the part of the attackers.”
It's all a part of his manchurian candidate master plan.
