No, We Haven’t Forgotten…

Because who could forget this:

2

Or this:

7

Not to mention, of course, this:

8

We will also never forget this:

9

And we will absolutely never forget all of our courageous sisters and brothers, heroes all, who went and covered themselves in glory on the battlefield, making sure that the mentally defective apes who did all of the above and more also wouldn’t forget.

It’s just that we seem to live in a nation that, present company obviously excluded, has.

They vote for reprehensible charlatans and tyrants like the golfer-in-chief who offers them Free Shit and has pissed away all that our heroes achieved, all of it and then some, they vote for treasonous swine like McSwine and Lindsay Lohan Graham who, until it became no longer convenient to do so, harangued us all about how we should arm and support the very same pisslamic fundamentalists who laughed and cheered when the Twin Towers went down, they do all of this and more and give not one solitary shit about what happened on that Terrible Tuesday.

Because dude, that was like 13 years ago.

So we feel more and more like we’re shouting into the wind, and we find ourself more and more in the camp of “Let the sheeple burn, them them be corralled, sheared and slaughtered, let them pay the price for their apathy and narcissism, let them have their introduction to the Gods of the Copybook Headings, and may they have joy of the experience.” Or not, we do not much care for them anymore.

But all of that, while maybe understandable, is no excuse. None of the above frees us from the oath that we made all of those years ago to never forgive and never forget.

Never still means “never.”

So if we must, and we do, then we’ll crawl up on our soapbox from time to time and hold aloft the tattered old banner that at least we may say that we never forgot, no matter what.

And may G-d have mercy on the shallow, empty souls of those who didn’t, because we won’t.

Thatisall.

    We haven’t forgotten, but the Progressives Scum have been doing everything they could to make us forget.

    The push is really on to get us to forget for the last six years. Odumbfuck only lets the military cap a Muslim when he absolutely cannot avoid it!

    Nor can he speak of war.

    A bit off topic, but relevant nonetheless. They just beheaded a third hostage over there today………

    but don’t call it a war, or call them islamic……..that might piss them off.

    Brits and Yanks, together again. I would love fighting with them and beside them. Its history making time again.
    Islam is asking for it. Eventually they’re gonna get it.
    Is there a way we can send them our support from here?

    God I hope so, at least David Cameron calls an emergency meeting of Parliament when one of his citizens is killed by these beasts….

    All of you will get this. Riveting accounts by ship and ferry and tugboat captains about the huge marine evacuation (bigger than Dunkirk, no lie) and maritime response to the World Trade Center attacks.

    “All Available Boats: Harbor Voices from 9/11? consists of a series of interviews with members of New York’s maritime community and it documents their response to the attack on the World Trade Center and their role in the subsequent evacuation of Lower Manhattan. Since the bridges, tunnels and subways were closed off, the water suddenly became the only way out. The Coast Guard enlisted all available boats to evacuate an army of walking wounded and terrified office workers and to bring rescuers and supplies onto the island. What emerges is the story of a collective effort of selfless dedication on the part of these previously invisible waterfront hands. These are the people who made this evacuation possible (perhaps the piece should be re-titled “Dunkirk on the Hudson”).

    The interviews were commissioned by the South Street Seaport Museum for a permanent archive documenting the event and they form the basis of an interactive exhibit currently on display. I worked very closely with South Street Seaport’s senior historian Steve Jaffe to make sure to show that the expertise, teamwork and ability to improvise under pressure were qualities practiced by these people in their daily working lives. Many of the interviewees had approached the Museum with written accounts and when it came down to it they were both eager and reluctant to talk. Eager to get the story off their chests and reluctant to having to relive the horror of that day.

    I don’t know how to embed photos, but there are a couple I would add: one an aerial shot of the whole site, and one of the men praying at the WTC Cross, found in the Pile.

    I came up with a few suggestions for Il Douche:

    1. Obama caused disaster aimed at managing the ISIL issue.
    2. Highly intense debates with ISIL utilizing aircraft delivered talking points
    3. Counter-ISIL non-war strenuous objection project
    4. Reduction of ISIL’s carbon footprint by means of direct action
    5. Troubled ISIL Reduction Program (TIRP)
    6. Extra-Domestic Non-Islamic Violence reduction program (Obama says that ISIS isn’t Islamic)
    7. The Obama/ISIL extreme Fruit Juice Summit.
    (Was called the Extreme Beer summit until Obama was notified that ISIL members don’t drink beer)
    The Obama anti-ISIL counter-vacation strategy

    Slightly OT (and most of you probably already know this), but a Facebook and rendezvous friend of mine recently pointed out that the Levant also includes Israel. Ergo, zero’s use of ISIL is a calculated insult to our only real ally in that neighborhood.

    That’s a fair question, readerjp, and one that deserves an answer.

    Part of it is my life being busier than all getout and long double shifts, but most of it is me being so very, very tired of shouting into the wind.

    Which, as I allude to in the post, is really nothing but a sorry excuse. Not the first part so much, time is not an infinite resource for me or anybody else, but definitely the second part.

    I do not have the right to simply throw up my hands and say “dammit, I’m done, I’m tired, let somebody else care”, and I certainly do not have the right given that I made an oath to never stop giving a damn. But, seriously, others faced far, far worse frustration before me and they didn’t stop, so who the Hades am I to think that I can just stop?

    I can’t. And I bloody well won’t. This is too important. I’m tired of being all “woe is me”, because it’s not my nature and it’s way beneath me. It’s easy to be all fired up when you’re winning, but it’s what and who you are when you’re not that really counts.

    And I owe it to my kids, as we all owe it to all of our kids.

    So things will have to change around here and, particularly, within myself.

    I don’t know where to start with the “around here” bit, but I have a few ideas. First of all, this site needs a facelift and it needs, more importantly, to be redesigned to the point where it’s easy to use for people who bother to read it, especially people who’ve been around for a long, long time and stayed persistent, people like you, but also for people who just pass by and want to join the fun.

    I started out with a simple BlogSnot site which was a joy to use and simplicity itself to keep updated and running smoothly. Sure, it wasn’t the snazziest of sites, but it wasn’t so hideously complicated that updating it meant spending weeks trying to re-discover the code and that putting in a comment meant trying to jump through more hoops than the average IRS audit requires.

    Everybody had a great time. Those were the days. Well, to get back to the community we once had, those days need to come back.

    So I need to figure that out. I have some very talented people still reading this site, and I plan to reach out to them. If anybody else is game, I’m listening.

    Once that’s in place, the rest will follow. It did before.

    But I need to get my hands out of my pockets and get back in the fight.

    So thanks for asking that question, it gave me a much needed kick in the butt.
