Propaganda and the Wound that Won’t Heal 11 September 2010

Really, MSNBC, you’re rerunning the live coverage of the 9/11 attack on the Twin Towers, minute by minute AND at the exact time it happened?? THIS is why people can’t get over it. One of your commentators said how no one has a problem planning events for December 7th, but “9 years out is too soon for September 11th”. And if seeing the second jet fly into the south tower can make a jaded person like me get teary-eyed, what are you doing to everyone else? You are perpetuating the problem

It’s time to rip the Band-Aid off and let the scab heal. Stop rebroadcasting this crap, and BUILD the replacement buildings on Ground Zero. With all the Park51 “Mosque” controversy, some people are asking why nothing has been rebuilt after nine years – this is why: PROPAGANDA. It would not be as effective to have the bagpipe players walking down steps at a garden in front of a new building as it is to walk around in the same pit of unfinished concrete that has been there for NINE YEARS. It plays on people’s emotions and keeps them stuck in the past and afraid.

But then again, I’m cynical.

And part of me still thinks Bush and his Neo-Con Wolfowitz Doctrine friends let it happen on purpose.

It’s time to move on.

I saw this game on another blog and I’ve always wanted to try it. It’s too fun!

Here’s how to play:

* Grab the book nearest you.
* Turn to page 56.
* Find the fifth sentence.
* Post that sentence. (Tell us the name of the book, too.)
* Don’t dig for your favorite book, the coolest, or the most intellectual. Use the CLOSEST.

We’ll wait a week for you to post what you find and then use the sentences to create a story. It’ll be fun, so get posting!!
