September 11 th
This day gets everyone thinking... What went wrong on 9/11? What could have/ should have been done differently? Have we grown since then? And have the proper steps been taken and measures been put into place to prevent such a thing from happening again?
Why is it most people think that whenever something "goes wrong" we committed errors that permitted it to? The world isn't like that. Life isn't like that. We cannot control everything. Bad things happen to all of us, and it's often not our fault. I don't understand why more don't understand that.
We have sacrificed, and we continue to sacrifice, big chunks of the dwindling liberty we have left in an attempt to empower the government to make us safe following 9-11. The pols and bureaucrats love it. They are getting vast new powers and revenues from this. Perpetual war is the answer to their prayers. It's 1984, years after that date.
When will we wake up to realize that 99% of the warmaking is by the US government, and that it is using its manufactured wartime to grab ever increasing levels of authority for itself, at our expense? We are fools not to put a stop to it, if indeed it is still possible for us to do it.
President Buchanan should have issued a proclamation warning all pioneers not to cross the southern portion of Utah Territory while his troops to the north were marching from Wyoming against the Mormon settlements. That would have prevented the slaughter of more than 100 innocent settlers by the Mormon militiamen.
