I was doing some research about the person I'm supposed to memorialize, and the emotions of that day came flooding back: anger, fear, sadness. And yet, because some camel jockeys hijacked the planes with boxcutters and some wires masquerading as a bomb, we've been told to bend over and take it, and be nearly naked when we get on a plane, and in several other places too now. Yes, I know there was a pregnant woman among the suspects earlier this summer from Britian but we haven't profiled ANYONE based on where they're from, how they're travelling, who they are, because we might *offend* someone. Fuck that shit. Are the terrorists Equal Opportunity Employers, not discriminating on the basis of race, gender, religion, etc.? NO!!! Why are we pussy-footing around the issue of who these people are and what they want, which is a Islamic WORLD! Islamic law EVERYWHERE!!! And woe to you if you're not Islamic enough for them, or they'll grab a rusty knife and saw your head off too! Folks don't like that I want our soldiers to take off the kid gloves in our handling of any captures and combatants, i.e. not firing on their temples when they're using them as a base of operations, treating any prisoners and the Koran with respect. Fuck that, I want Oscar Meyer to go into overdrive making and shipping bacon products to the Middle East for us to use as weapons of war NOW! They want to act like barbarians in this open-ended war, I say we bring it to them hardcore! Cluster-bombing with Baco-Bits, feeding the prisoners BLTs. They don't like that, gonna go on a hunger strike? Good, the sooner they starve, the sooner we ain't gotta keep taking care of their sorry asses.
On the home front: What the Hell is it with folks wanting to call 9-11 "Patriot's Day"? Did I miss that referendum? I thought Patriot's Day was just fine where it was, on April 19th, commemorating the Battles of Lexington and Concord, and coinciding with the day the Jews in the Warsaw Getto rose up against their Nazi captors. But because Janet Reno had a barbeque and Tim McVeigh had a blast, that
day is stained forever, and we mus'nt use that name anymore for that day. So we recycle it for 9-11?!? Why not use Rememberance Day? It's not like anybody's using it anymore, not for it's
original purpose, which has since been renamed Veteran's Day.
And excuse me, Mr President? The Minutemen aren't vigilantes, THEY'RE DOING THE JOB YOU'RE SUPPOSED TO!!! Do we need to elect Kinky Friedman as Governor, since he's promising to send 10,000 Texas Guardsmen
(not the dismal 1500 the Fed promises) to protect the border FROM UNLAWFUL INVADERS! I don't care if they're coming across one at a time, when it adds up to 75,000 a week
, IT'S A DAMNED INVASION!! I want something done about this last year!
