The Aftermath

Six years, the world has changed.

I'm more afraid of U.S. politicians and security, than Islamic extremists.

I'd rather deal with the threats of violence, than the security gestapo at the airports. Shouldn't the airlines be the ones in charge of security on their flights?

How can a country spread freedom, and talk of liberty, by taking those ideals away from it's own citizens and the countries they occupy?

U.S. Citizens are easily misled. It's easier to blame someone else for our problems than to educate yourself to raise above the problems or to solve the problems. Blaming someone else is a profitable venture.

The terrorists win by providing excuses for our executive leaders to spread fear, exactly what they were hoping to do.

How much longer will the vengeance last? How much more blood will be spattered? More than one hundred innocent lives have been taken for each life taken on 9/11. That is not justice, it is evil, evil hatred.

Why are we at war, what are we trying to win? Safety? The "wars" have accomplished the exact opposite. When we are the ones spreading immoral and unethical behavior, who is the enemy?

I'd like to list all the positive things that have happened because of the 9/11 attacks, but I can't think of a single one. Someone help me out here.

Now do you understand why I prefer being around my little Honey than any human?

You definitely need to get yourself one and bring it with you on your runs. Dogs do help repair our broken souls. You can definitely live without a woman but you should seriously consider getting a four-legged companion. It will surely never ever disappoint you. Humans on the other hand, well anyways..

I can't imagine my life without one.

nancy - If only we humans could be as good at love as dogs, the worlds problems wouold be solved.

ES - Threadless has creativity. I like it.

On the positive things, I said "because of" not "not since"

Hill - I wash the car to get off the pigeon shit, but some days the pigeon comes back and shits even more.

One thing is certain, pigeons will never stop shitting.

Whos is the enemy? I think we are our own worst enemy.

... not coming up with any positive things either.

Pigeons... hummmmmmm at least when they shit, it's clear what they are doing to piss you off... ;-)

niCk (Mem Beth) said...

blueberry - Yes, I agree,we are our worst enemy. That and fear. They like fear because it gives them a reason to protect us.

nancy - The pigeon shit will always return, and I can always clean it up. It doesn't piss me off, it just another task. No use complaining about the rain (or pigeon shit), its not going to change the weather (or the shitting pigeons).

Actually, Threadless is full of independent designers. Kind of like a collective.

Dude, you have a week left before my contest is over. Where's your horde, your legion?
