Original message Man oh man, that 9/11 thing sure worked out well.
This isn't a MIHOP/LIHOP thread in any way, shape, or form. As you will see, whether 9/11 was one of those two, or exactly as it was reported is immaterial to the outcome. A smart person makes the best of the circumstances faced. A smart person would have reacted favorably to those events.
Since 9/11, the day "everything changed," everything did, indeed, change.
Mass delusion swept across the country. To no good outcome, the masses clamored for war. Cowed by the death of 3000 people in such a spectacular way, the masses were scared shitless. Nothing could have led to a faster move to total compliance than what happened on that day.
Think about it. The country fell in line willingly behind a man so minimally qualified to be president that he will surely be recorded in history as the Worst President Ever.
The war led to a massive redistribution of wealth, initially by way of the MIC, and then by way of any other smart company that wanted to capitalize on governmental disarray and a cowering populace.
Along with the wealth transfer came a growing need to control the population, should the worst happen and they begin to realize how badly they've been had.
In their infinite wisdom, they create a federal agency - the biggest in our history - armed to the teeth and massed against . . . . . who? . . . . against *us*.
The words "for your protection" prove to be the most Orwellian reality thus far.
Our Democracy is now much the same as many of us remember it . . . . in high school. We get to elect the class president, but the principal and the school board still control us.
So sure, let's all just accept the fusillade of impolitic insults rained upon us little people.
U*S*A U*S*A U*S*A U*S*A T*S*A T*S*A T*S*A . . . . . .
