9/11/09

Well, it’s been 8 years since that awful day, and it really doesn’t get better. All year long it kinda feels like it’s getting better, but as the days draw closer it kind of slows down again and it begins to set in. Like I said, September is a weird month for me, and this day starts it all. Do what you can, we have to get through it. We must reflect and remember the day. We have to remember the days and months after. We are New Yorkers, so it will make us slip and trip, but we’ll be fine and stronger and better for it. Please take some time to watch Never Forget – Remember the Blood of Heroes and join us as we support each other today. God Bless America

I was looking through some scanned documents and came across these pics I scanned of a trip Rosanne and the boys took to the Twin Towers in the early 90’s. This is the way it was, and at least we’ll always have the memories and these images to draw upon.

Here’s a site called Ride with the 40. It provides support for the families of Flight 93. Please check it out. Read through the biographies and help us support the families.

You know, just the look on Nancy Pelosi’s plastic face was worth the embarrassment of knuckle-head Joe Wilson shouting out and calling Dear Leader a liar at that speech before Congress ….

Here’s a video the mainstream media, your friends if you live on the left, conveniently failed to show us. It’s Tiger Woods’ speech at the Obama Coronation, er Inauguration. Listen to his words, and you will understand why the MSM failed to inform We the People.

From my AJ, a very funny librarian joke.

A man went into a library and said to the matronly librarian, “I want a book on suicide.”

She looked up at him and said, “Fuck off. You won’t bring it back.”

I’ve always wanted to paint a mural on our roof of this 9/11 ribbon I’ve adopted. This weekend KM volunteered her great artistic abilities to this project and competed the ribbon and a peace sign that Ro wanted. It came out great and means so much as we approach 8 years. Never Forget 09.11.2001 ribbon. I am also curious to see how long it takes Google Maps to show the new roof.

From my AJ, a joke about a situation I face each day at the office.

Every day, a male co-worker walks up very close to a lady standing at  the coffee machine, inhales a big breath of air and tells her that her hair smells nice.

After a week of this, she can’t stand it anymore, takes her complaint to a supervisor in the personnel department and states that she wants to file a sexual harassment grievance against him.

The Human Resources supervisor is puzzled by this decision and asks, ‘what’s sexually threatening about a co-worker telling you your hair smells nice?’

The woman replies, ‘It’s Keith, the midget.”

It’s definitely a good sign that Van Jones resigned, however, I think it took too long to happen. We the People need to keep up this sort of pressure, as it does work. And kudos to Glenn Beck who paved the way for this to occur. We need to continue challenging the picks and direction that dear leader is taking us, and get that man to get back to the center.

Here’s the video piece of that WWF tsunami ad that used the 9/11 attacks as some sort of save the fucking planet message. Assholes. What’s the damn point of the message ? What’s one thing got to do with the other ?

Say goodbye to those orange seats on the 7 train. They are all being replaced over time with these blue ones. Supposedly there is a significant cost savings involved.

Well, it’s September. I can’t believe the year is nearly gone already. September is a weird month for me, so bear with me as I go thru some ‘phases’.

bullet

Here’s something we should be concerned about. Emergency powers that would allow our government to shutdown the internet in an ’emergency’.
