  •  More "brand" than fetish. Business loves brands, (14+ / 0-)

    and 9/11 is a gift from the Gods for every mendacious, flag waving, shipped-all-our-jobs-to-China capitalist in America. A slam-dunk, guaranteed, prove-how-patriotic-you-are brand for every marketer to slap on his latest corn syrup/PCB/cardboard & plastic piece of crap for a free boost to sales.

    •  I dread 9/11 (8+ / 0-)

      because it's brings out a "righteousness" in the pig headed idiots who then feel it's their call of duty to verbally assault or provide some road rage to us "hippies".   "You commie facist socialist pinko bithc! Don't you care about the victims and the troops?"

      9/11/9/119/11... is Nationalism Frenzy.

      The bastardizing of the events surrounding have shunted my abiility to openly grieve.  

      Mostly now I just feel anger.  Anger for the dead, for the heroic first responders and citizens who now are dying from the debris in their lungs and without any care or treatment.  Angery for it all.

      The Falling Man, the photo of the man falling almost swan like is forever etched in my brain.  It should be.  But with it I have to try and blurr out the propaganda that goes with it.  The gall of our "leaders" to tell us to just go home, there's nothing to do here, just go shopping...

      I will not watch this.  I won't be complicit.  So once again I will find some way to deal with this alone.

      I remember around the 4th of July seeing "9/11 commemorative flags" mixed in with the fireworks displays.
