It’s been so long ago now. 16 years. Kids these days don’t remember that gut punch that morning, though their lives have changed because of it.
Other than those people directly affected, other families joined the military, privacy laws were laid to rest, political correctness came into full bloom since that day 16 years ago. I went conservative along with many many others.
This is my sister’s birthday too. It’s not a good one. It’s worse than having a Christmas birthday.
We always says “Never Forget” and I don’t think we will. We won’t forget that there is a variety of Islam that believes those who don’t believe should just be dead.
There is a variety of the left wing who also believes this but with less violence. They fight against all those things that have brought civilization to where it is today. Where we have fewer people in poverty (and poverty has been redefined upwards), fewer people hungry, more opportunities for so many more yet without the understanding of why. People wish for a simpler time with fewer people and less complex systems of stuff (agriculture, corporatism, information surplus)
It feels like in many ways these folks are sympathetic to the attackers of 911 and I don’t like thinking that way.
I haven’t been blogging for a while because of those feelings. They just make me cranky. Somehow Breitbart usually managed to stay in good spirits when engaged in the fight. Somehow soldiers in Afghanistan manage to remain examples of excellence. 911 happened 16 years ago and Islamists are still trying to kill the infidel and we continue to try to walk that walk between being a superpower, yet not actually sharing the force of that power to be done with the battles. We wonder why our boot camps are 4 months, yet 16 years in Afghans still can’t control their own country without outside help. I wonder how the left can be so open to changing this country so completely.
With that – let’s see if I can’t get this blog going again. I used to enjoy the heck out of it!
Up with the flag!
