Hobbie, I'm not sure what your post means, and I don't know your position on this. BUT, I for one, will NEVER forget, and that is something reasonable folks

just DO NOT 'move on' from.

You can keep memories but you have to move on. We expect others to, so must we.

I haven't forgot. Probably never will. I was not around when Pearl Harbor happened. But that date is locked in my mind too. Seems like yesterday..... 9/11 that is. Also the shuttles blowing up and breaking up..... Kennedy getting shot.... Bobby Kennedy... all seem like just a few days ago. Sad we can't take a moment to tell the young-uns. To some moving on means you forget about the past.... but to a wise man, he always keeps the past in his memory.... at least to the point he doesn't allow himself to take the wrong path.

those who want to "move on" didn't lose family, those who want to 'move on" are just selfishly looking out for themselves, bet they also didn't lift a finger nor open their wallet when Harvey reaked havoc in tx, yet they are the ones who complain when they get pinched during a bad economy.

Probably don't have a remembrance at public schools for the Alamo either even though we are still told "Remember the Alamo". Don't make a big deal anymore about the "Day of Infamy". You know, people have moved on. Not forgotten, just more history we all wish hadn't happened.

While the 'tolerant crew' is "moving on", the animals that brought on the 9/11 attack are busy attacking countries all around the world. Including this very one.

Another confusion is "tolerance" vs. "forgiveness." If you can't forgive how do you expect to be forgiven?

Yes, the events of 9/11/2001 were tragic and evil but there are those in this country that harbor resentment yet we continue to expect them to get over it and move on.

I don't think this is what is meant by American exceptionalism.

Forgiveness is for those who repent. Those animals want to kill you and your family, with no sign of hesitation or remorse.

Can I get Book, Chapter and verse for that? My evidence can be found in the Lord's Prayer.

If our government had ANY intention of putting a stop to Islamic extremism, on 9/12 Mecca would have been a gravel quarry and on 9/13 Riyadh a smoldering pile of corpses. It didn't happen then, it aint gonna happen now. Joe and Jane Public would have aneurisms. Giving yourself a stroke every year on 9/11 won't change that or do you any good. Might as well accept the fact that once again some people made a LOT of money on the back of a half hearted "war".

I have said The Lord's Prayer for more than 60 years. Started at four years old in kindergarten. As a Presbyterian, in my youth, we said "forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors". As a Lutheran, we say "forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us".


I've never committed mass murder, so I don't feel the necessity to forgive anyone that has.

One cannot expect forgiveness of one's sins unless they stop committing those sins. (That was my original point.) It's in The Book.

I for one have not moved on, I have not forgotten and I darn sure am not forgiving. I'm fine with nuking the entire Middle East, then I'll move on. I would push the button and not lose a wink of sleep over it. PERIOD!

Here is what I remember soon after 9/11. The declaration of the Axis of Evil.
Iraq. We should have established a permanent presence there just like we did in South Korea.
Iran. The most recent former president gave them a gazillion dollars in cash. For what?
North Korea. We have had a long history of enabling this hole in Hades by buckling to them any time their leaders rattle their sabers.
So what have we learned from 9/11?
Not one dagummed thing.

Since we are referencing the Good Book on what we should have done. Back in Joshua's day, God instructed him to go in and kill everthing that breathed and then burn it to the ground. I'm for that.

Back when that took place there was no redemption.

Not much, other than a great place to kill a bunch of terrorists who cheered in the streets in response to the Towers coming down.
It is not our fault that we called Hussein's bluff of having weapons of mass destruction (which he falsely claimed to have in order to prevent Iran from attacking his country).

Was that Iraq or Iran that had people in the streets celebrating? In Iran they burned so many US Flags they resorted to burning Yankee effigies. Iran has been and still is a larger threat...the difference is that they have a better military...same with NK. Afghanistan and Iraq were little more than dust on a ticks butt.

I could tell you who "NEEDS TO MOVE ON" but it wouldn't be 'politically correct' and would probably get me kicked out of here.

When there are clear and present threats facing our Nation (foreign and domestic), it is no time to just let it go.

I would say most Americans have virtually forgotten what they felt like immediately after September Eleventh. If they had not virtually forgotten, we would not have porous borders and would not have taken massive numbers of Muslim refugees in from the worst countries in the entire World.

I feel sorry for people who live in terrible third world countries, but we have plenty of people here and should at this point in our history, only allow the best people other countries have to immigrate here. Immigrants should be a benifit to the average American citizen, or not be allowed in. Immigrants should be heavily vetted and immigrants, who are criminal or who become a drain on American society, should be permanently deported. We can't save everyone in the World from problems of their own making.

America First!

Don't tell me you believe that clown show at the airport has anything to do with preventing terrorism. The TSA was created to create federal jobs and condition citizens to accept being groped, fondled, zapped with x rays and to stand in slow moving lines.
