    I think this is incredibly well done.

    "Our president delivered his State of the Union message to Congress. That is one of the things his contract calls for -- to tell congress the condition of the country. This message, as I say, is to Congress. The rest of the people know the condition of the country, for they live in it, but Congress has no idea what is going on in America, so the president has to tell 'em." ~ Will Rogers

    Wow. This really is a very powerful message.

    I'm moving this to WOT only because it's a little too intense for the Lounge and because it uses imagery from 9/11 as a springboard for a much more extensive theme.

    You need to watch all of this clip. Don't sample 3 or 4 minutes and think you've got it. ;)

    Thanks, Ginger. I was stumped as to where to put it. It's too bad we don't have a forum dedicated to videos here.

    That would be handy for things like this.

    Indeed. It would be less like a grave. :p

    I've watched it twice, and I'm really not getting it at all. The imagery in the first two thirds is very unsettling, as always, but the words don't line up with the imagery for me. I was in NYC shortly after 9/11 and so I'm not wanting to watch it for a third time to try and figure it out.

    Someone want to have a shot at explaining what the supposed "powerful message" is? A Cliff Notes version will do.

    Apparently, 9/11 was God's vengeance on the fleshy (materialistic) world. Personally, I go with the "...the Arabs were angry that day" explanation, but I'm a cause and effect kind of guy.

    Before you can do things for people, you must be the kind of man who can get things done. But to get things done, you must love the doing, not the people!

    Incredible... Thank you Ape for sharing this.

    Actually, the arabs are angry every day and getting angrier. The more they get, the more they demand. The west had better wake up and put a stop to the human Gonorrhea that is otherwise known as muslims.
    Education without values, as useful as it is, seems rather to make man a more clever devil.
