Discussion in 'Current Events' started by Annie, Jun 10, 2005.
It needs its own thread, needless to say, lotsa links:
I am amazed at the left and there insistance that 911 was our fault instead of the guys who flew frickin planes into building. What the heck is with these self hating people?
I think they see it as a permanent reminder of how bad the conservatives are?
If discussing with friends/family. They must be getting nervous, but those that care are NOT backing down:
Signed the petition. Sent this to Mayor Bloomberg:
Hon. Michael Bloomberg
I am writing in regard to the Sep 11 Memorial proposed by the International Freedom Center. I am concerned that this organization will turn the memorial into simply another "blame America first" travesty.
Although I live in southeast Alabama, I was a New Yorker on Sep 11. As a veteran of 25 years military service, I shared the pain of the loss of so many brave police and firefighters. As an American, I am deeply concerned that any memorial constructed on Ground Zero be a fitting tribute to the men and women who lost their lives that day.
Whatever fitting memorial is finally erected, we must not allow a collection of dilettantes to hijack the true spirit of that memorial and turn it into a tawdry, cheap and disrespectful travesty. We owe those who died no less than a memorial which respects and cherishes their memory.
Not that Bloomberg seems up to the task but your letter,
I saw some of the families of the 9/11 victims on tv putting pressure
on the pc political elite.
I think only the victims of 9/11 in the towers, on the other planes
and the pentagon should be remembered there.
I could see the the list of fallen members of the armed forces
in the war on terrror have their memorial there too.
Slavery, the black rights movement and others should have
a memorial at another place not there.
I hope the President does better than this:
I agree with the sentiment but wouldn't it be a bit heavy handed for the federal govt to step in the middle of this?
