Reflections and Perspectives of September 11th

Reflections and Perspectives of September 11th

Personally, the most memorable moment of September 11th was being jarred out of my sleep by the constant ringing of my old, cellular, flip phone and hearing my cousin screaming at me hysterically telling me to turn on my television to CNN, because the country was being attacked.

ZZzzz...I'm gonna fly a kite!...ZZzzz...And buy some books!...ZZzzz...Huddle in a corner, terrified?...ZZzzz...Yeah, right!...ZZzzz...

Is This Herman Cain Campaign Ad The Most Offensive Use Of 9/11 Ever?

It’s probably not a good idea to run a campaign ad featuring the tragedy of the September 11th terrorist attacks, depicting yourself as some kind of savior so you can gain something politically. But that is exactly what Republican Presidential Candidate Herman Cain did.

Did Ron Paul’s Supporters Hijack An msnbc Poll?

On Wednesday night Republican candidates for the Presidential nomination debated in Simi Valley, CA, at the Reagan Presidential Library. Msnbc polled their audience to ask who won the debate, and surprisingly Ron Paul is winning. If he was winning by a small margin we probably wouldn’t be writing this article, but he isn’t. He’s winning with 57.7% of the votes so far, with second place going to Romney with 14.3% so far. That’s a 43.4% difference.
