September 11th, 2006

I don't know about the rest of you, but I have been conscientiously *avoiding* anything to do with the 9/11 anniversary today. Maybe it's still "too soon" or maybe it's because watching talking heads dissect something so visceral is too painful.

But I found this story and had to read/watch. I think Keith Olbermann is often a pompous ass but, tonight, he is brilliant.

Five years later this space… is still empty.
Five years later there is no Memorial to the dead.
Five years later there is no building rising to show with proud defiance that we would not have our America wrung from us, by cowards and criminals.
Five years later this country’s wound is still open.
Five years… later this country’s mass grave is still unmarked.
Five years later… this is still… just a background for a photo-op.
It is beyond shameful.
Watch the full video here.

The truly sad part is, all of this destruction triggered by 911 has been caused by an administration that was appointed in to office on a 5 to 4 vote.

We must elimitate private industry from our voting process.
We must have a complete and perminant record of every vote cast in every election.
We must allow each and every citizen the right to vote without hinderence.
We must no allow premature reporting of results until ALL the results are in.
