.Surely steel beats aluminium (below 2.5 mach) every time.
Yet we saw on our trusty T.V. screens, aluminium effortlessly beat steel.
Anyone so sure of gross contradictions is iffy in my (physics) book.

That's why we should never forget 9/11 because the terrorists are still out there walking around and breathing our air. I'm a New Yorker and 9/11 is not just a news story to me, It's very personal. To me forgetting is like forgiving and I will not allow that to happen. I will not forget and I will not forgive. Ever...
When I say forget 9-11, I mean we must dump the slogan that has been used as a rallying cry for more foreign wars and police state oppression here in the US.
The way the right treats the 9-11 heroes as pawns in their quest to maintain tax cuts for the rich while funding the so called "terrorists" we are supposedly at war with just goes to show the hypocrisy of those who use this slogan against us.
I say dump that slogan; forget the hatred and the fear it engenders and find a new slogan to commemorate the heroes and the lost without furthering the sick political objectives of our rulers.
Of course this is only my opinion, but I certainly do not say such terrible things on a whim. And if what I have said scares anyone then I do not appologise, fear is just a natural reaction we must all go through and face before any change can take place. I am no longer scared of these criminals, the may have power over weak minded thugs and disinfo agents to steer them but they certainly are not goig to shut me up unless they kill me. But even if they do kill me there are now millions of others like me just waiting to take my place

9/11 victims, first responders and survivors get disrespect from the right, left and center. If you're trying to say that democrats use this slogan in the way it should be than how come they don't give a crap about dealing with those who let it happen? As far as I'm concerned there is no right or left. Just pointless posturing and fake disagreements. They are on the same team.
