911 - it used to be the number you dial when you have an emergency. I wonder if that went into choosing the date for the plane crashes? Anyway, PEOPLE OF THE WORLD, what do the events of 911 mean to you?
Following yesterday's Special Comment by Keith Olbermannn on Countdown we now have a great deal of time on CSPAN's Washington Journal dedicated to the plane crashes 7 years ago; seems like just yesterday. TRUE, this was an event limited to America's shores but the aftershocks have touched everywhere on the globe. So I feel comfortable asking the diverse community at ET, "What does 911 mean to you?" I'll start.
The US government, under the direction of Cheney/Rumsfield, sucker punched America in an attempt to bring about a complete fascist state under the Republican Party, not unlike the government of the old Soviet Union. To some extent they got away with it, but with people like ME still typing things like THIS, they didn't succeed completely.
