POLITICS - HUMOR - FINE TEQUILA - TRAVEL - ENTERTAINMENT
Bad news . . . I'm disappointed to see
you take the position of, "My country right or wrong",
in standing by Smirk. You're asking your readers to support the man who has isolated the US,
described peace oriented treaties as flawed, and didn't have the cajones to get on the ground
and speak to the 'Merican people. Constitutionally, he isn't the president. He's a president manque
paid for by the fascist right. This isn't the time to lose your bearings, BC.
When the shock of this truly horrendous
day wears off,
I hope you'll lose the Patrick Henry mindset and realize that the US is not numero uno.
All of creation is numero uno.
I know tempers are quick and tensions are high.
I have a feeling I could say it 500 times and still be misunderstood.
There's time for that later.
For today, for tomorrow, let's be one country.
The Creep Factor
Olson was a guest on CSpan's Washington
Journal along with Bill Press.
Most of the callers who got through expressed their extreme displeasure of Mrs.Olson
and her smarmy and dishonest tactics and her making a career of slandering the Clintons.
One caller, who appeared to be a black
woman judging by her voice, firmly told Barbara
just what a despicable woman she indeed was, and ended her call with,
"You are evil. You won't be around much longer.
You have too much of the Devil in you."
That was two days ago.
The Taliban is "warning" America not to react too swiftly.
WTC Constuction Stats
The buildings of the World Trade Center contained
more than 200,000 tons of steel
(that's 400,000,000 pounds), more than was used to construct the Verrazano Narrows Bridge.
There were 425,000 cubic yards of concrete
-- enough to build a five foot-wide
sidewalk from New York to Washington DC. At a rough estimate, that much concrete
would weigh close to 479,000 tons -- almost but not quite a billion pounds.
There were 43,600 windows with an area of over
600,000 square feet of glass.
If it were extruded into a ribbon one inch wide, it would stretch 1,363 miles.
Over 1.2 million cubic yards of earth was excavated
for the structures, and this landfill
was used to create 23.5 acres of new land now known as Battery Park City.
And not one of those numbers can even come
close to the magnitude of human loss involved.
Report any knowledge of attacks
If you have any knowledge of the attacks,
report to this site.
It's been rough getting in at times, but just persevere.
Thanks for the updates, I know everyone
It is very quiet all over the country, and it is eerily so here at Camp Pendleton.
Where I am used to hearing explosions, guns and helicopters 24/7, it is totally quiet today.
I can assure you and your readers, when
the Marines are ready to kick some ass and take names.

The president just spoke
"We will not differentiate between those who
committed this crime and those who harbor them."
CNN: Afghanistan opposition claims responsibility for Kabul explosions
September 7, 2001
Over the last several months, the U.S. Government has learned that U.S. citizens and
interests abroad may be at increased risk of a terrorist action from extremist groups.
In addition, we have received unconfirmed information that terrorist actions may be
taken against U.S. military facilities and/or establishments frequented by U.S. military
personnel in Korea and Japan. We are also concerned about information we received
in May 2001 that American citizens may be the target of a terrorist threat from
extremist groups with links to Usama Bin Ladin's Al-Qaida organization. In the past,
such individuals have not distinguished between official and civilian targets.
As always, we take this information seriously. U.S. Government facilities
worldwide remain at a heightened state of alert.
U.S. citizens are urged to maintain a high
level of vigilance and to take appropriate steps
to increase their security awareness to reduce their vulnerability. Americans should
maintain a low profile, vary routes and times for all required travel, and treat mail and
packages from unfamiliar sources with suspicion. In addition, American citizens are also
urged to avoid contact with any suspicious, unfamiliar objects, and to report the presence
of the objects to local authorities. Vehicles should not be left unattended, if at all possible,
and should be kept locked at all times. U.S. Government personnel overseas have been
advised to take the same precautions. In addition, U.S. Government facilities have and
will continue to temporarily close or suspend public services as necessary to review their
security posture and ensure its adequacy.

So, you think those who criticize the
unmitigated disaster George

Well fuck you and go to hell!

No, I said today isn't the right day to do that.

The headlines and stories coming out of this are going to be horrible.
I want to go to bed and wake up 6 months from now. I've already heard
about a body coming down on top of a firefighter and killing him.
I've heard estimates of 200 firefighters on the ground when it collasped.
I want to go to bed.
