9/11 was 18 years ago. If someone were born on the day of the attack, they would be 18 years old now. Able to vote.

And I thought the Kennedy assassination was bad. 9/11 was absolutely the most horrific thing to ever happen to this country. The Patriot Act has destroyed our rights. The trillions of dollars we spend on never ending war has left the majority of us living in poverty or always in debt. Everyone has big mortgages with no healthcare or retirement security. And no matter how much productivity gains are made by big business wages never go up.

It's a long way from the days when this song characterized this country:

A bit off topic. I used to love Steve Miller. Some of his songs I can sing along to. But then he lost the 'plot', got fat and wasted.

Maybe that's the over all problem.

Kind regards,

No the people are not steering the ship, the people are passengers, the ruling class steer the ship and when it hits rocks the blame lies squarely on them.

And 18 year olds are able to join the military and go fight in the same war in the same places their fathers fought in.

If our Public Schools wernt so damn liberal they all have history lessons and show them videos of what happened and who was involved with no white washing. This new generating is going to grow up thinking these goddamn planes just flew themselves into a building. I believe our education system is actually making people ignorant of important historical facts.

I agree the patriot act destroyed a lot of rights... the rest of this post is pure nonsense and entirely hyperbolic BS.

The majority of Americans living in poverty? BS.

“Everyone has huge mortgages”? BS.

No one has healthcare? BS.

I’m not sure what world you live in but it’s definitely not reality.

People certainly are paying too much for healthcare, but I don't think that's because of 9/11.

I started the thread just because I find it odd that an event that far gone still seems like it happened yesterday. 5,000 people is a lot to die in one day, but it's nothing compared to what some countries have seen in this century (or especially the last decades of the 20th century.)

We keep telling those guys to move on. Can we?
