9/11 and the R*ping of America

9/11 and the raping of America
What is rape but the use of fear and violence to get what you want.
Right wing extremists in the United States have been exploiting  fear from 9/11 to use violence to get what they want.
We fight a global war on terror and sacrifice our freedoms at home to support the same kind of failed policies that caused the 9/11 attacks.
At the same time these same extremists have used the 9/11 attacks to expand the debt.
While at the same time reducing the tax burden on the wealthiest Americans.
Creating the huge  budget problem we have.
Then instead of restoring the tax rate we insist that it is the average American that is going to   pay in the form of reduced service   fees/taxes.
We are being raped and then forced to pay for it.
These same corporations have a strangle hold on the government   the media, one and a half of the two parties and most importantly most of the wealth.
The average American gets less pays more and ends up going overseas to die needlessly.

I Remember 9/11
I was on the highway driving up to work in Palatine.
Kids in school now time to go back to work.
Listening to sports talk radio.
They interrupted and the story began to unfold as the planes hit the buildings and the fires began.
I pulled over to  the side of the road because I could hear the bodies hitting the pavement.

Oh the horror!

Then like just now I cried for those poor souls.
It was a nightmare day.
And it was just the start of a ten year nightmare.

 
Which leads us to Noam Chomsky and in his reflections on 9/11 where he gives us some further background on the kinds of policies that caused the 9/11 attacks.

Noam Chomsky on the Dangers of American Empire and Why the US Continues to be Bin Laden’s Best Ally

Tomdispatch.com / By Noam Chomsky

“A number of analysts have observed that although bin Laden was finally killed, he won some major successes in his war against the U.S. “He repeatedly asserted that the only way to drive the U.S. from the Muslim world and defeat its satraps was by drawing Americans into a series of small but expensive wars that would ultimately bankrupt them,” Eric Margolis writes. “‘Bleeding the U.S.,’ in his words.” The United States, first under George W. Bush and then Barack Obama, rushed right into bin Laden’s trap… Grotesquely overblown military outlays and debt addiction… may be the most pernicious legacy of the man who thought he could defeat the United States” — particularly when the debt is being cynically exploited by the far right, with the collusion of the Democrat establishment, to undermine what remains of social programs, public education, unions, and, in general, remaining barriers to corporate tyranny.”
