Answers to Questions I Wasn't Supposed to Ask
In the "debate" over 9/11, those who support the official story show little concern for facts or logic. What few "facts" they present were "found" by suspect sources. We need new mythology about this event to spark a better debate.
"... a story full of heroes, which the public loves, but no evidence that anyone died, let alone become the victim of a terrorist murder."
We are about to go through another onslaught of misinformation by much of the media. Here is what we are bound to hear about:
The brave passengers on Flight 93
Nineteen members of Al-Qaeda
Planes hitting the towers
Crazy conspiracy theories debunked
Here is the truth:
Flight 93 (aka United 93) on September 11 flew toward the West Coast long after its alleged "crash". There have never been any passengers verified for this flight, let alone anyone fighting hijackers.
There were no hijackings on September 11. Two of the flights alleged to have been hijacked NEVER EVEN TOOK OFF!
As there were no hijackings, there were no hijackings, let alone hijackings by Al-Qaeda.
No passenger planes hit anything that day.
People like me feel "crazy" listening to lies told by the media.

After the shooting in Ferguson, who are the real winners?
As evidenced by this article on gun sales, gun sales are going way up in the area near Ferguson Missouri, where a police officer recently killed an unarmed young black man. Maybe this is not surprising.
But what if this event was staged? The possibility may shock you, but take a listen to this.
Staged event + escalating gun sales = a small group of people winning until society figures it out it has been had!
The best rivalries and best games in the National Football League Were in the 1970s!
The envelopes, please!
See no evil, fear no evil, speak no evil
See MH 370 fly
Don’t see MH 370 crash
Don’t see pieces of MH 370 plane
See the months go by
See MH 17 fly
See MH 17 veer from regular path
See MH 17 blown up
…in a war zone
…bodies said to be dead BEFORE the crash
See the flight listings
MH 17 was canceled that day!
Then it flew again the following day!
What's with that? MH 370 did not return for weeks!

Years ago, I played Little League baseball. Those were good times. I was a pretty good player and I played on some winning teams. I learned about teamwork and sportsmanship.
I also learned a little about the dark side of some people. Not the players. They were kids like me, getting exposure to the kind of competition we would be accustomed to years later.
It was the parents, and specifically, some of the coaches. I will never forget what happened one season.
In Little League we had split seasons. There were two halves. Teams competed to win at least one of the half seasons to assure a spot in the championship. If a team won both halves, there was no championship – that team was declared the winner.
My team lost the first half narrowly to our rivals. In the second half, we were poised to win and face our rivals in the championship.
Then something happened.
Our rivals were set to play a game against another team. My brother, who was on my team, and I went to see the game. We hoped our rivals would beat the other team, which was challenging us for the second half.
We saw our rivals take the field. Some guy who had never pitched the entire season took the mound. He threw pitches in the dirt to a catcher who had barely gotten the equipment on! We tried to find our rivals’ best player, who had clobbered several home runs that season. He was not on the field: he was on the bench.
The other team came to bat. The first hitter grounded a ball toward the second baseman, who started to step toward it. Then he stopped and watched the ball roll by. The next batter popped the ball into the outfield. Two outfielders looked at each other and laughed as the ball dropped.
The game went on like this. My brother and I watched for a while, stunned that no one was stopping it. We went home and told my dad, who called the league commissioner’s office and relayed our account. The commissioner said he would get back to him. He never did.
Who would throw a Little League game?
People who put their self-interest before respect for the rules.
As I grew older, I realized this tactic was quite common. Friends shoplifted. Classmates cheated on tests. Co-workers embezzled money.
And this was small fish, compared to the prizes at stake in our society.
I have written three essays recently which accuse people of putting their self-interests before respect for the rules in presidential elections and other significant events in recent United States history:
The 1980 Election: How the Reagan Campaign Made History - and Foreign Policy
George W. Bush Wins Job in December 2000 to Play President in September 2001 Movie about Terrorist Hoax
Our Next President - and Who Will Pull Their Strings
Those who deceive and flaunt rules will always have the advantage. With no concern for ethics, they can achieve their goals using every option available.
So why do we, who are aware of these deceptions, bother to bring them to the attention of others?
Because life is a lot like baseball.
We may hit the ball or we may strike out.
But we won't let someone make a fool of us.
SEND THIS TO SOMEONE FRUSTRATED WITH OUR POLITICAL SYSTEM!
