I was sleeping when the first plane hit. Wife woke me up to tell me about it and we watched the second hit live.

Crazy shit.

Americans not born during 9/11 can officially start dying for it tomorrow.

Congrats everyone. We've collectively raised an entire generation, from birth to adulthood, in wartime.

Quite the opposite; I'm on a gluten-only diet. Can you drink alcohol right now?

I'll bring champs for all the civil liberties we've lost and the fellow countrymen that died to lose 'em.

You heard it all the way from Nashville?

I was indoors in Charleston so I didn't hear it.

When I realized it was real I turned around bought 30 cases of water and 2k rounds of ammo and went home. I didn't go to work that week just made sure I was in the best defensive posture if anything else happened.

I think people get honored enough but as a country the majority have forgot and still want to let out country be invaded by people that want to actively crush our culture.

Those people need to be dealt with harshly

Being a Naval Reserve Officer there was rumor every reservist was getting activated immediately, so there was lots of angst in our household.

And the answer to the 2nd part is yes & no. I think first responders got fucked in this deal.

Was commuting to work with my wife and we stopped at a Starbucks in Scottsdale, AZ and everyone was on their cell phones. I told my wife Scottsdale was full of douchebags always on their phones.

Got to work and realized why.

Well, that's because I think that things have been pretty much all downhill since 9/11, planet-wide, and that things are getting worse. I notice you didn't argue with what I said, which is unusual in and of itself.
