Plenty of erudite bloggers will comment on the day I'm sure, so I probably don't need to corral any more pixels on the subject. But I will. Mostly because, as the only New Yorker posting regularly on this blog, I feel I kind of have to.

We all know it was quite a day. We all know how scared we all were. We all know how shell shocked we all became. That day was a perfect, crisp, Fall day. The sky was blue and the air was fresh. Today, not so much; it's rainy and gray and sort of dismal. As New Yorkers, we'll go around like we usually do; grousing about the subway, paying too much for milk, and flipping some deserving soul the bird.

And the folks in the media will pose the usual trite questions, ones like "Where are we after 9/11? What does 9/11 mean to you?" and they'll be showing us all the old images of the buildings collapsing, the montage of photos of the survivors' faces, tears streaming down their cheeks, and they'll also show that picture of the 19 hijackers over and over again. They'll continue to uphold and reinforce the official narrative. The one that says 19 hapless angry guys used a bunch of box cutters in an attempt to destroy America.

Some might mention Charlie Sheen's youtube video to Obama, but only in the most derogatory way. They'll marginalize his 'truther' views, labeling anyone who questions the official narrative as a 'conspiracy theorist' or worse, mentally unbalanced.

My views? Am I a 9/11 truther? Not really. Global Patriot Worker is and I'm sure his posting had been light because he's always busy this time of year trying to rattle cages. No, I guess I'm more of a "they let it happen" person, mostly because I'm convinced the US government and it's operatives are just too damned inept to have orchestrated such a thing on their own. Just look at the history of the CIA and all their foul-ups for proof of that. But I'm not one of those truthers who is out there pounding the pavement, gathering signatures and demanding another investigation.

For one thing, another official investigation, because it will have government control and input, will just be another whitewash that will waste time and placate idiots. And really, what's the point? We know we were lied to. We know that the US Government has been responsible for millions of deaths worldwide. We know that the US Government is not beyond killing their own citizens to push forward an agenda. We know that the US Government hasn't really represented the people of the United States since at least the time corporate personhood was established. We know all this and yet a lot of people STILL believe that 19 idiots managed to terrorize an entire nation, and not just any nation, but the world's hegemon.

So, an investigation is pointless. You are either already aware of these facts or you are safely sequestered in your little bubble of lies.

The only thing left for us to do is turn off the TV today. Don't watch the memorials, the images, the video clips and the commentary. Don't look at a printed newspaper or listen to corporate radio. Don't talk to your brother-in-law, you know, the one who thinks that George Bush was God or that Dick Cheney is just misunderstood. He's a loss. What you can do is check out alternate stories about 9/11 that aren't part of the narrative. Think for yourself, decide for yourself which of it is crazy and which of it makes you go "hmmmm." Talk to reasonable people around you. Don't let the TV tell you that people who question 9/11 are few and far between and that they are recognizable by the foaming at their mouths. We aren't foaming at the mouth and we are legion. We're your next door neighbor, we're your grocery clerk, we're your crossing guard. Talk to your neighbors and friends and I guarantee that you'll discover a lot more of them think 9/11 wasn't what they want us to believe it is and you know what that means? There are more of us then there are of them.

And THAT means they should fear US.

I, too, refuse to participate in watching all the BS reruns of the event and listen to the positively stupid, insipid, and inane nonsense. 'Specially since all the networks will gloss over the facts, not discuss Ws cowardice and obvious panic of not having the faintest idea of what to do. Sitting there in that school, perfectly aware, and shamefully so, of the many warnings and outright threats made by bin Laden and with the knowledge that this could have been prevented.

Malfeasance in office doesn't even begin to express the contempt in which I hold these a$$holes that KNEW we were going to be attacked and did nothing. Nothing but allow it to happen so boy george could have an excuse to play tyrant and plot his illegal wars, all the while bearing the shame of having allowed so many to die at the hands of one of the sons of his daddy's long time business partners in the Carlyle Group, the father and head of the bin Laden family.

So I'm taking the day off completely from the half-truths, lies, and fantasy excuses of the media that bought Ws version and cover-up of the truth and permitted bin Laden's threat to come to pass and watch only DVDs and/or go out to dinner and a movie with my beloved wife, Mila.

I wholeheartedly extend my condolences to the families who lost so many dear and loved ones and I mean them no disrespect by refusing to participate in watching again the tragedy, the horror, and the spin of most cowardly world leader and accomplices in news agencies ever.

The truth will out someday, as it always does, and that will be the final chapter of Ws sought after illusions of greatness and his legacy.

Bless all the families and victims that died because of boy george's mendacities.
