    Damn New York liberals and all.  Throwing New York under the bus, even after 9-11 is popular with Republicans.

    I really believe that the pagans, and the abortionists, and the feminists, and the gays and the lesbians who are actively trying to make that an alternative lifestyle, the ACLU, People for the American Way -- all of them who have tried to secularize America -- I point the finger in their face and say 'you helped this happen.'" --Jerry Falwell on the 9/11 attacks
    Pretty much sums up the Republican position on 9-11, and it was a convent excuse to start wars.  Where Republicans cry crocodile tear over 9/11 it's because it made a good excuse for them to start wars, their real position is what I just quoted.

    They've been shoving 9/11 in NYC's face from the beginning, anybody remember their convention in 2004?  Last I heard the federal government under the Bush administration owed NYC a bunch of money for recovery efforts that was never paid.

    Sticking it to 9/11 victims and first responders is par for the course for the GOP. The Bush administration busted my disgust meter with this kind of shit a long time ago.

    I object to violence because when it appears to do good, the good is only temporary; the evil it does is permanent.
