    A day of Rembemerance

    Today is September 11th. Please take a few minutes of your day, and reflect on the tragic events of the day. So many husbands and wives, people's parents, or their children died on that this day 18 years ago. So many police and firemen died doing their duty to try to help rescue people. That event significantly changed the politics of the world, and not for the better either.

    On a side note, CNN and MSNBC chose to vilify the POTUS rather than remembrance.

    I am doing my best to focus on the moments the networks cover the various events focused on remembering 9-11, despite everyone's best efforts to make a swipe at someone for something during the coverage.

    It is not easy across all the networks... sad.

    And the first idiot chose to lie about Muslims cheering and to talk about how tall his tower was. Let's not forget that part while we're remembering.

    As a strict constitutionalist, and understanding that death is part of life, I would rather mourn the death of numerous constitutional principles that resulted from the Bright & Shining Lie told that day and every day since.

    Re: A day of Rembemerance

    A day of rememberance for sure. So glad I am no longer on FB; I can't stomach the "I miss 9/12/01 when we were all unified" memes. This is a terrible, pathetic, worthless position.

    I do not miss 9/12.

    I miss 9/10/2001.

    On a side note, you're lying about MSNBC. I watched Morning Joe. They talked about Bolton - after they talked about 9/11, which was the opening of their show. They had a lot of guests talking about 9/11. They had a moment of silence at 8:46 am. Keep your crush on POTUS in check. It makes you lie.
    It's disgraceful. I'm going to maybe and I'm looking at it very seriously. We're doing some other things that you probably noticed like some of the very important things that we're doing now. But we're looking at it very seriously because you can't do that. - President Donald J. Trump
