Thousands of lives were suddenly ended by evil, despicable acts of terror.
The pictures of airplanes flying into buildings, fires burning, huge structures collapsing, have filled us with disbelief, terrible sadness and a quiet, unyielding anger.
These acts of mass murder were intended to frighten our nation into chaos and retreat. But they have failed. Our country is strong. A great people has been moved to defend a great nation.
Terrorist attacks can shake the foundations of our biggest buildings, but they cannot touch the foundation of America. These acts shatter steel, but they cannot dent the steel of American resolve.
America was targeted for attack because we're the brightest beacon for freedom and opportunity in the world. And no one will keep that light from shining.
Today, our nation saw evil, the very worst of human nature, and we responded with the best of America, with the daring of our rescue workers, with the caring for strangers and neighbors who came to give blood and help in any way they could.
~~From President Bush's remarks
***Rush's take on the Chicago teachers strike: A setup for Obama to swoop in and save the day! I have no doubt that's what will happen. By the way, the average teacher in Chicago makes $77,000 - and they turned down at 16% raise. Don't think for a minute this is about making the schools better for children, as they're claiming. It's about their pocketbooks and a photo op for Obama. Just wait.
***Seven work-at-home jobs for 20-somethings (or anyone else).
***The media is trying to depress you and keep you from turning out to vote Republican. Ignore them, and ignore the silly polls that are weighted to the Democrats. Jimmy Carter led Ronald Reagan at this point, according to the polls. How'd that turn out?
***There are those, I know, who will say that the liberation of humanity, the freedom of man and mind, is nothing but a dream. They are right. It is the American dream. ~Archibald MacLeish
***Have a great day!
