It is sad how we say “We Will Never Forget” and then within a decade many of us do exactly that. Enough of us to elect someone as dimwitted as the current occupant off the oval office, anyway.
While one political party wants to forget, the powerbrokers of the other one want to strip away our civil rights and tell us that an act such as this will “never happen again” so long as we don’t complain about what they’re doing.
And because a liberty-minded individual can’t catch a break, our dimwit gets to one-up the civil rights violators in the party opposed to him because he has a press corp that deifies him.
But the cherry on top of it all is that those who support our dimwit, but oppose the civil rights violators of the other party not only get to blame me and those whose political ideas are like mine for the civil rights violations, partly because I oppose the dimwit’s other domestic policies and partly because I voted for a guy 13 years ago, but also get to call me an intolerant bigot because I like my individual liberty and have no desire to let those whom I am not supposed to forget committed an act of terrorism both 12 years ago and last year on this day tell me to kneel.
And if that last exceptionally strained sentence was not enough to show you how pissed off I am, then I don’t know what to tell you, man.
