I wonder if people are forgetting...
It's hard to forget what happened on this day eight years ago, but sometimes, when you listen to some politicians and the way they talk about the middle east, you'd think those islamists loved us!
Yeah, the last guy really screwed the pooch as they say. He had the entire world on his side and he attacked that little bonehead dictator from a country that really had nothing to do with that specific attack. If he'd done it right there's no telling where we'd be today.
But I also hear and see a lot of comments that give me the idea that somehow, because we're, that's Americans, a little to arrogant, that what happened on September 11, 2001 was in fact, our own fault. And sorry for the language, but that's straight up bullshit.
Our new pres has it a little better. Afghanistan is a little closer to the real problem, but really, when you look at it, it was Saudi Arabia that attacked us that day. Nobody ever really talks about that, but those 21 guys on those four planes were all from Saudi Arabia. They were all wahhabi islamists. But I never heard to many nasty words against one of the worlds largest oil producers. Not from a politician or a talking head on TV.
There are a lot of brands of islam, just like there are a lots of brands of other religions. Apparently, whahhabi is the brand that requires you to be rat living in an outhouse fucking crazy and strap bombs to your ass for the betterment of your fellow shit house rat crazy cultists. Can't be for your own good, you won't be around to enjoy the "fruits" of your labors. Well, that's not entirely true, 'cause you'll be "around" alright. Around the entire neighborhood. You know, head here, arm there...
I don't know what the answer is for dealing with this middle ages brand of religion. That's what islam is, nothing but the MOST backward religion on the planet. They're all backwards, but at lest some of them teach peace and love, not hate and destruction. Yeah, yeah, I know the crusades and all that....check your history, the crusades were a response. They didn't start unprovoked, they just got carried away in the end. Still destruction though...anyway you look at it. I spent about 18 years going to church, look what it did to me!
Anyway! Maybe Derek Jeter can help us, Tri-staters that are Yankee fans too, that is, forget, or at least ease some of the painful memories to this date, 9-11. Tonight, weather permitting, Jeter will play against the Baltimore Orioles. The night before last, Jeter tied the great Lou Gehrig's record for most hits ever by a Yankee. Tonight, September 11, 2009, Jeter could break Gehrigs' record.
Then, when people ask, what happened on 9-11, I can say...You really have to ask? And mean it both for the Twin Towers and Jeters' newest Yankee record! But if you ever ask me personally what heppened on 9-11, I may just pop you in the nose for being an IDIOT!
Never forget people! NEVER!
