___I begin by starting this story with these words about 9/11/2001. " these are my own thoughts on the subject "... And I want to say I'm sorry up front, because i know some of this may offend some of you. And this is not my intent to do so. Maria-Lyn
___I remember the day so vividly, as if it occurred yesterday. You know that day I speak of, now so far away. Like every other American I, awoke to a huge tall building on fire at the top. I recall gasping to get air when I, thought how are they ever going to get that to stop. Then my mind turned to the, thought of the poor people up that far in the air. And I thought, boy with all that smoke I wondered how they would see to get down from there. As I watched all the papers that were falling to the ground, in a whirling sort of way. Then I wondered how someone could fly into that building on such a clear sunny day! Then all of a sudden there came into sight, another plane that went directly into the other tall building that was there! Oh my God I cried, how could anyone do something like that, how would they dare? ___Oh my God I cried, how could anyone do something like that, how would they dare? Then at that time it dawned on me, that is was an attack on our Country. And that no longer would we beable to see, how the Left and the Right could ever again agree. At that time my heart got stuck in my throat, as I thought again how could anyone dare. Attack these innocent people so far up in the air. Then I said to myself, someone had to know what they were doing, and just didn't care. That they were going to kill our fellow American's now helpless so far up in the air. As I sat there crying watching the events unfold, I thought to myself I hope a lot of the people could get free. Then it dawned on me that now we have no other choice, war is coming you'll see. And I said to myself oh no, after this how could we ever again feel free. But the biggest problem I had, as I watched the first building fall to the ground. ___I had wondered why the Government hadn't sent any of our jets in there to fly around? Why hadn't they sent them there to protect the other buildings there? I thought they should have done that or did they just not care. Whether another plane would strike, the other big tall building that was there on the site. At least if they had sent the jets, we would have a chance to stop that other flight. But one thing that never dawned on me, as I sat there in tears. While I watched the other Tower fall down to the ground, sounding like big grinding gears. I just sat there so stunned,with my mouth hanging down, and tears in my eyes. I felt sorry for those poor people who died, and never got to say their goodbyes! The rest of my day I spent in shock, with lots of tears. As a thought came into my mind, which made me shiver with fear. I began to wonder, what was wrong with Government that, there were still no planes in the air. ___My God I thought to myself, boy they really don't care. So as I searched to find someone to contact in the Government to ask them why? Over the news came a broadcast, that at the Pentagon more people just died. The news report said that a plane crashed into the Pentagon too. I said to myself, that was because they never put any planes in the air, what a bunch of fools. And shortly after that the press said oh my God, a plane just crashed from the sky. And they said that 90 some more people had died, when finally I reached the White House to ask why? When I reached them at the White House, I said what the heck are you doing? You are screwing by not scrambling jets, into the sky and, the American people are booing. They told me that they did send up the jets. But the didn't know where to send them, nor did they know which one to get. So I told them who cares, get some jets up in the air. Or don't you care?
___Well before the end of that day, I heard we lost almost 3,000 Americans they said who died. And when I went in the morning to get my newspaper, thats also what I read. And since 9/11/2001, I have not stopped watching the news, the senate, and the House of Representitives. To follow what they did in the process of, finding a way to fix what happened, because there should have been no way. For these terrorists to get there hands on 4 big named Air Planes, that was a very strange thing to me. I almost felt that our Government had to have been involved, for these guys to high jack that many planes. I felt very bad thinking that way, but in all my years I have never seen anything like that. Happening to us here in America, because we have normally had excellent Air Craft Security. Due to previous situations of a plane being high jacked in the past.
___But enough of what I experienced that day mentally, and emotionally and onto the reason I, feel I need to write about what has happened. To My Country the United States of America, and We the People since that day. And what I see our Government doing to, our legal rights we all inherited as an American. Such as the right to, privacy, freedom of press, freedom of speech, freedom to assembly peacefully, the right to ha-bias corpus. The right to not be searched or wiretapped without a court order, or even probable cause. Yes it is very up setting to me that, The Bush Administration, and now The Obama Administration have done everything they can to infringe on our Civil Rights. And some how that has to stop, before it is too late to save them, from this Right winged Supreme Court. That is dying to destroy this Countries right to a functional Government Entity.
___What an embarrassment these two Administration's have caused, to We the American People and to the respect we use to be given to us by the World Community. And the Democrats, aren't much better these days about going along with the Repubs., and their new laws they are passing to take our Civil Liberties away. I can no longer call either party that they are on the side of the American Peoples as far as our rights are concerned. And while we were struggling about the 26 people killed in Newtown, at Sandy Hook Elementary, our congress passed a five year extention of the spying program. That Bush set up, and Obama continues, just like Obama continues all of Bush's policy on the war on terror too. Including secret prisons, over seas that he denies having, and yet still are being reported on by some great Journalist like. Jeremy Scahill of the Nation, and MSNBC's Richard Engel. Or you can read more on it by going to this story. As Italy Sentences 23 CIA Agents in Rendition Case, Obama Refuses to Prosecute Anyone for Torture or this story.

___Well I think, I have spoken my opinion on the state that this Country is in right now. And it doesn't look any better in the near future that anyone in Washington plans on changing any of these problems. So America can hold Her head up high again, and be able to face the World with Pride. As long as there continues to be so many lying, and corrupt politicians in Washington. The only way I see anything getting done to fix the corruption, would have to come from an Active Nation of Americans. Standing up to protect our Rights before they all are taken. From We the People of the United States of America. God Bless Us All Americans ---written by Maria-Lyn__on this day of 01/14/2013__on be half of all those people that Americans Innocently Tortured, against the laws of the Genieva Convention. When will we be brave enough to proscute those that made their own laws. And said the He$$ with the Laws Of the World Treaty we signed. And who continue to be so Arrogant That They, think they can get away with this forever. Shame on Washington, and that includes President Barrack Obama
