On The 11th Anniversary of 9/11, It's Still All About the Money

On this, the 11th anniversary of 9/11, I'm not going to post a big rambling rant about how I was picking my nose on the can the morning we got the news in California, and I'm not going to tell you how it changed my life forever nor am I going to tell you that we, as Americans, should all hold hands and hug out one of the sickest, most tragic events of our country's short lifetime.

I will, however, bite my tongue and share a few relevant links. Follow the money, my friends, follow the money. Call me a conspiracy theorist if you like (like I give a shit what you call me), but I believe the least we can do for the real live human beings who died not only that day but since as a direct result of that day's events, is ask the important questions until we uncover the truth. The truth has yet to be revealed.

Crushed towers give up cache of gold ingots Um... yeah... so why was wreckage of trucks hauling the gold out found once they got to it? And where is all this "missing" gold?

SEC & EEOC: Attack Delays Investigations The old NY Lawyer article is inaccessible but you can still read it (thank you, Internet!). Remember, in 2001 we weren't all expected to be on the Internet and in the cloud like we are today.

Greenspan’s Post-9/11 View Greenspan: "There is a shock; the shock wears off; there is a period of mild euphoria as the shock wears off; and then there’s a secondary negative effect. With this extraordinary outpouring of activity favorable to the United States position, we may well be looking at part of the euphoria phase."

And of course, a couple from me, your Master of Fucked Up Ceremonies!

The Craziest 9/11 Conspiracy Yet: Greenspan Inflated the Post 9/11 Bubble to Help Us "Maybe Greenspan isn't a libertarian but a politician. But maybe he did it to free the dollar. Think about it, it was his final and most diabolical move. Or maybe he just did it as a favor to the Bush administration so we'd soon forget all about 9/11 and head back to the store to console ourselves with things. Surely you remember the "America: Open For Business" signs in store windows. Who said we were closed? We just needed to grieve for a minute and for once, shopping wasn't going to do it."

OK, just one 9/11 memory from me. I remember this song waking me up on my CD player boombox that morning (hey, it was 2001 and I was a 20 year old kid, what do you expect?) and it haunting me all day after I got the news.

Today, everything was fine, fine, fine
Until 'round about quarter to nine,
Suddenly found myself in a bind, a bind

Tomorrow, what price would I pay?

ASK questions. It's OK. It doesn't make you any less of a sympathetic patriot, folks. In fact, you're honoring the memory of those who gave their lives for this horrible injustice.

God bless America. Not this bastardized America we live in today, real America. We're better than this. How we all came together after 9/11 proves it.
