9/11 fourteen years on - what have we learned?

Nothing it seems.

Complacency has set in and noone cares.

The fools believe those holding the victim card.

Some photos to remind us.

I watched a movie last night, a compilation of all the video footage from 102 minutes of the 9/11 attack.

I was sad.

Sad for the loss.

Sad that real people lost so much because of the actions of so few.

Sad that our governments have learnt nothing from 9/11 and other terrorist acts carried out in the world.

Sadder still is the fact that I have otherwise apparently intelligent friends who are convinced that the buildings collapsed because of explosives planted by the CIA.
For a comprehensive collection of rebuttals to the conspiracy theories, see this:

Hi Kate,
Yes, I did not foresee 14 years ago the way things would turn out. I miss the old days of the internet and blame the invasion of vapid "social media" for the drop in the tone of the 'net, I guess that makes me a snob of sorts. Confession: I'd happily read a thread full of Mr Numbers comments compared to the stuff I see now. I did not realise things would get worse! All is forgiven Numbers!

How could you say such a thing?

My experience with FB is that it's full of people who look like adults, but who mostly behave like children.

The number of people with little general knowledge of "things" (things I learnt in primary school and high school for example), is an eye-opener. No wonder they believe in AGW and everything that the left dishes out as "news".

Hi Skeeter!!

My mother is having a clean out at the moment. The current victim is the huge wall length/height bookshelf...

I have been delivered a pianforte certificate and some bits and pieces - a book of heroes and also a travel dairy made when the family went to NZ in August 1975.

I was thinking about reproducing it here...

I'm thinking of making time to blog here again - but it takes time to prepare and I really want to write on things of interest.

The political situation is tragic and annoying and depressing.

The islamisation of Australia is continuing with a local government pollie wanting special laws to protect people like him from bad words and accusations... er, I thought there were already laws for that?

So a long time between drinks?

Took Onglyza off and on for a year. I  have an enlarged adrenal gland. Still I await the outcome of that CT, but I know that much. Will find out more.
I had the CT because of chronic pancreatic pain that started out as "attacks" from a couple of times a month to finally after 3 months of use without interruption, "attacks" 2-3 times a week. My PA put Onglyza on my allergies list.
In the meantime, I lost almost 50 lbs in 5 months due to illness. Loss of appetite, pancreatic pain, chronic diarrhea, then eventually, inability to move my bowels. Severe back pain from the pancreas, and severe chest pain sent me to the ER where I was worked up for cardiac pain. I was cardiac cleared, but told my amylase was very low.
Still seeking a diagnosis, but I lay the blame squarely on Onglyza. I'd had pancreatic issues in the past, and argued with the PA that prescribed it, she was calling me non-compliant, and I feared repercussion from my insurance company.
I even took an article about the dangers of Onglyza, particularly in patients with a history, and she made me feel foolish.
I wish I had listened to my instincts, I fear not only damage to my pancreas that is irreversible, but also severe damage to my left kidney, though I have bilateral kidney pain.
I was off all diabetes meds, and control sugars strictly low to no carb. I can barely eat anymore, I have severe anorexia.
I would warn anyone taking Onglyza to consider a change and try Dr Itua Herbal Medicine, and anyone considering taking it, to select a different avenue. I have been suffering severely for about 9 months, but the past 7 months have been good with the help of Dr Itua herbal medicine which I took for 4 weeks.
I have been off Onglyza now, for 7 months, and simply 100% improvement with the help of Dr Itua. I had none of these issues except a history of pancreatitis in my distant past.
I will recommend anyone here with health problem to contact Dr Itua on and whatsapp +2348149277967 also he ccure the following disease with his herbal medicines Hiv/Aids,Herpes,Copd, Glaucoma, Cataracts,Macular degeneration,Cardiovascular disease,Lung disease, Enlarged prostate, Alzheimer's disease, Dementia.
