One point my sister pointed (duh) out was that America likes making wars on verbs and nouns, like War on Drugs, War on Terror, and War on Spontaneous Combustion.

And here, I'm pointing out (duy) that your sister is retarded. What else are they going to war against? Adverbs? Conjunctions? Verbs and nouns are the basis of the English language. Hit your sister upside the head once for me, would you?
Done and done.
How 'bout proper nouns?

The proper noun is just a specific type of noun...It's still a noun...

Locking the topic until next year.

And remember that we should never forget...

Well, seeing as tomorrow is 9/11, I'm opening this back up early (I have school tomorrow, so I'd be opening this up around the same time >_<).

Another year and it seems like nothing has changed. We're still in Iraq, the country is going downhill and America still hates Bush with a burning passion.

Your views of the past year?

We are in bad 1985.



A worse version of Biff is running things.

I love the analogy using the Alternate 1985. I'm not sure if it's that horrendous, but . . . we could be well on our way if things don't change.

Well, quite a change since my last log on.

I can't believe it has been 6 years now. So has anyone heard the latest? Al-Qaeda's new targets are going to be grammar schools in the U.S.

Splendid. They still haven't had enough yet. Bin Laden wants us infidels to convert to Islamn as well. Revenge is a dish best served cold, eh?

An uncertain future, definitely. That is the legacy of September 11. I lost no family, no friends, but perhaps I lost my country.
This may have been written two years ago, J, but that was absolutely amazing...I was moved, yes I was.

as rude as this may sound, I wanna forget. Just like I wanna forget about princess Diana. and here's the reason: this  isn't honoring the memory at this point, it's martyring a bunch of people to rally across some otherwise really stupid notion.
"OMG TERRORIST DID 9/11 NEVER FARGET THIS BE THE REASON WE IN IRAQ!" frankly, I don't wanna be reminded alot of people died because 11 random idiots from the middle east did slightly more damage then one white boy with a bomb did in Oklahoma, an event NO ONE bothers to remember.

As for princess Diana: IT YOUR FUCKING FAULT SHE'S DEAD, ENTERTAINMENT IDUSTRY, SHUT THE FUCK UP AND STOP WHORING OUT HER FUCKING NAME FOR RATINGS.

I dunno, grey, I've always thought it's important to hold onto Sept. 11 precisely because it serves as a reminder of how idiotic all human conflict is -- along with Hiroshima & Nagasaki, the Holocaust, etc., etc. I've never seen any propaganda value in it whatsoever (though our illustrious President no doubt does, as you've pointed out). If anything, it reminds me of just how wrong the whole US strategy in the War on Terror is.

Oh, and maggie, I'm not sure about 9/11 jokes, but Marle x Magus comics are always okay.

Hey gray, it's your opinion, I really don't care. I just unlock this every year so we don't get 100 topics about 9/11.

Oh, and jews did 9/11.

No, Semites did.

And Grey, it was nineteen, not eleven.

I've been to it...I once thought it funny, before I realized just how much of it is hateful racism, homophobia, sexism, and the like. It's disgusting.
