Not doing it this year.

Normally this is where we do the customary "Where were you when..." post.

Not doin' it this year.

Every half-assed artiste and self-important talking head is going to be engaged in an orgy of omphaloskepsis today, telling me how they felt on that day.

I don't care how they felt on that day.

The people whose feelings on that day would interest me most are too busy monitoring the reactors on submarines, playing swap-a-tronics in the electronic guts of a JSTARS, or shooting smelly terrorists in the face to go pose for the cameras in NYC.

Bloody well damn right.

I can't say it better than you wrote here.

Word.

Kevin Baker said...

I didn't do a "Where were you?" post, or a How I felt that day" post. I did a "How I feel TODAY" post. But I certainly acknowledge your position on the topic. (AKA - "word!")

Buzz said...

Yup, Mallard Fillmore also captured it well.

Preach on Sister Tam!

That "wuff!" noise the guard dog makes when he spots a threat? He's not so worried about 10 years ago either. Watching here, Yes. Yes we are! WV:bushne. Heh! (Leupold actually.)

Thanks, Tam, I actually had a chuckle after looking up 'omphaloskepsis' at dictionary.com; and I agree with your sentiments.

Linked you up. I'm saturated.

I'm not even thinking about it. BO has declared September 11, 2011 as, "National Grandparents Day." Since all of my grandparent are dead, I'm thinking about them. I thought it was a joke at first: {http://www.whitehouse.gov/the-press-office/2011/09/09/presidential-proclamation-national-grandparents-day}. Is "SCOAMF" even strong enough words?

And almost 7000 of them have died to protect us...

Laura said...

amen.

i was going to turn on the Tee Wee to see what the talking heads had to say, but changed my mind. i've only been on the internets for an hour and i'm already burned out on it.

We seem to be on the same page.

Interesting, that.

Today ain't about me either...

I kept it short and focused on those who really matter...

Yep.

Old NFO asked me that question a few days ago, so I answered him, Vet to Vet. But, to the Lamestream Media with their "Boo Hoo, it's 9-11" Dreck, here's my answer: "One of my Nephews in the U.S. Military is Somewhere I don't have a Need to Know, doing Something I don't have a Need to Know, which allows me to go about my Business and live my life, which is ALL I Need to Know. Now Quit your Whining and Self -Flagellation and find some Real News."

Edward R. Murrow has to be doing 10,000 RPMs today.

Thank you, Tam. I like where you're keeping your thoughts.

/salute and Semper Fi.

Thanks for posting this. You expressed my thoughts exactly.

Eloquently put as always.

I played the "Where were you then" game, just to let people know how PISSED OFF I AM about the appeasers-in-charge of this once-great nation. I am not doing the maudlin dirge, however.

I had bacon with breakfast, bought a 1911 this weekend, and am having pork tenderloin with dinner. The Wahhabists can kiss my red, white, and blue backside. I am done playing victim. Come get some.

Dann: Aren't the talking heads the ones that really matter? I thought that's what they told me all week...

BTW - you're now regular Insta-fodder. I think Prof Reynolds may be sweet on you!
WV=cides? That must be the kinder, gentler Tam.

We kicked ass, took names...
Time to move on !!

S. L. Haynes said...

Tam, these are my feelings exactly. Are you sure you're not the reincarnation of Mark Twain?

An Ordinary American said...

I would much rather prefer to reminisce about "Where were you on the day we nuked Mecca and Medina?"
