I'm so tired of hearing about this stuff. I am an American and things like today make me ashamed to be one. Nine years ago, some assholes flew planes into these giant buildings. The hijackers were religious idiots and no one deserved to die but them. This is all given. It's been nine years though. People are making a stink about it like it happened yesterday.
Did you know that every day, there are people getting killed for no good reason? In larger quantities, in more inhumane ways, all over the place. And Americans don't give a shit about any of them. Know why? Because it isn't white Christian Americans who are being killed. And that's the beef I have with this place. I can't turn the TV on without seeing someone babbling about how America is unstoppable or how patriotic some guy is in his NASCAR shirt with his Pabst.
The world sees us as naive idiots who believe Jesus rode a dinosaur and that the whole world speaks English and shops at Target. If you polled Americans, I bet you 9 out of 10 of them would shit themselves when they found out that damn near everybody in Asia does NOT use Facebook, but some other social networking site that they'll never care about enough to research. Americans are, by far, the most self-centered turds to grace the planet.
Mourn in private. Why does it have to be a parade? Do you want me to feel sorry for you? Do you feel entitled to the world's attention? Because you're not. And I won't. And neither will the rest of the planet. Because they're busy with their own problems, that are a lot more detrimental than the fluke that happened in 2001.
