JN, I have taken a full day to reflect on this ATSNN story and the basis of the question's posed in the story.
One question was posed; "How much lower can the vile Bush Adminstration sink?"
Then a conclusion (editorialising)(opinion misrepresented as question)(forgone conclusion prevents honest discourse) was presented, misread as a
question by most others, me included at first glance.; "Whether you are Republican or not surely it can be agreed that this is exploitation at it's
worst," basically this is an imflammatory statment, nothing more.
And editorialising (statment,unsupported);
"and that by scraping the barrel like this it shows how desperate they really are."
JN, If the sources of the original "Mirror" story that has been used to pose the question, conclusion and editorialising in this ATSNN story is
impugned by the now proven connections to the Heinz foundation and the IAFF union - both being political. there can be little veracity given to the
story or question posed. It is therefore relevent to point this out because it has everything to do with my answer and opinion that you ask for.
Obviously your real and only question is one of politics,
"How much lower can the vile Bush Adminstration sink?"
I have answered that question by stating the Bush campaign has right to reference 9/11 and no their not vile, you disagree and thats ok you have a
right to opinion.
I believe that I have enrichend your posting by educating others about the falsity of the outrage as used for basis of the "mirror" story,many
others and likewise this one.
ATS is all about finding the truth to me and I am disheartend that instead of welcoming discourse, even though it is opposite of your political
opinion - censorship is attempted.
In answer to the "conclusion"- "Whether you are Republican or not surely it can be agreed that this is exploitation at it's worst.",
On the information currently available, no one can truthfully conclude that exploitation is felt by most 9/11 families, further unbiased information
gathered in the future may provide a different answer when a large sampling poll of 9/11 families is completed.
"scraping the barrel like this it shows how desperate they really are.",
This actually indicates the opposite, coming from one of your seemingly political pursuasion - it is a desperate statment in and of itself.
I hope no offence is taken in what I believe is a very clear and concise answer to both the question posed in the post and further response to later
comments - I have a right to an opinion also.
