Get your memorial hotcomments graphics ready! That's right. It's nine eleven.

Some seven years after our govment’s inside job on the World Trade Center. Let’s make a big stink, shall we, trudging up old ghosts of anted deaths. We needed 9/11 to wage our war over oil, oops, I mean oil. Oops, what I meant to say was oil. Argh! I did it again. I mean to say we needed this homeland tragedy so we could wage war over weapons of mass destruction and have citizen support.

Let's have a candle holding ceremony and close business so we can remember the victims and their families. That sounds swell. As if they are not remembering for themselves. I am sure they remember with all the overplayed footage of the buildings rumbling down, or watching their significant other jump out the 65th floor window. Perhaps the funeral bills, and the eerie silence around the house could suffice.

What about the girl shot to death by a group of men hired by her parents? She was nine when they arranged her marriage to a 45-year-old man. She grew to an adult age and went to court to have the marriage annulled. She walked out of court, was surrounded by the group of men, and killed, needlessly, and foolishly. All in the name of tradition.

Or what about the three women buried alive because they wanted to choose who they could marry? Can we light a candle for them and crowd the media with their stories?

No. No, we can't. For the same reasons we can’t find green fuels, and non genetically modified food. Because we are busy wasting our resources keeping two men or two women who are very much in love from marrying each other. Because we are busy dumbing down the nation with fascinating stories of which celebrity is too thin, horror stories of which strand of spinach somehow has mad cow disease, what's Brittney doing now, "hook your friend up with my momma" (the new reality tv show), did Obama make a sexist attack on Palin by using an old adage about a pig wearing lipstick? ....

Just because Palin does resemble a pig does not mean that the comment was a strike at her. Though it was. Obama is savvy enough to have pulled Hillary's chair out and offer her a seat, as a heroic gentleman, reinforcing that he is a brawny man and she is a dainty little woman.

As far as the tidbit with Palin - she herself, is a sexist. She is knowingly playing the role of the token woman as a strategic ploy to win the crossover states' Hillary fans. She knows she was not nominated for her accomplishments, but because Alaska is somewhat mysterious and disconnected from the continental-US, and more importantly, because she has a poon-any.

If I were to make a sexist remark about a candidate using the word "lipstick", it would have little to do with a pig. It would have more to do with what can be performed while wearing lipstick, and in reference to the subject matter, probably performed poorly.

This world is a ball of shit. Sorry, offend you, I might. That usually is my intention. But, I am just voicing what we are all thinking but are too pussy to do anything about.

Now go do the right thing.
