Remembering The Victims

CNN's 9/11 Memorial lists all the victims of the 9/11 Murders.

Take a moment today and remember that day.

Remember that a few twisted maniacs with a longing for death and some Koran verses memorized were able to murder almost 3,000 of our citizens. Remember Todd Beamer and those brave people on Flight 93 who fought back and saved untold numbers of victims.

O all you host of heaven! O earth! what else?
And shall I couple hell? O, fie! Hold, hold, my heart;
And you, my sinews, grow not instant old,
But bear me stiffly up. Remember thee!
Ay, thou poor ghost, while memory holds a seat
In this distracted globe. Remember thee!
Yea, from the table of my memory
I'll wipe away all trivial fond records,
All saws of books, all forms, all pressures past,
That youth and observation copied there;
And thy commandment all alone shall live
Within the book and volume of my brain,
Unmix'd with baser matter: yes, by heaven!

~Hamlet, Act I scene V

What about Vazquez? Anything new? Or did the dicks just write it off?

He was wrongly accused and the charges were dropped.

I do remember them Rue but do you know what I remember most and am reminded of on a daily basis? That the 700,000 to 1 million Iraqis who have been slaughtered as the the result of our mass-murderous war of imperial aggression had nothing to do with it.

Rebuild the twin towers! Don't even leave a plaque at the site. You are just making the area a trophy for Islam. Mourn at the cemetery.

CHICAGO POLICE OFFICERS WIN the FLSA Compensatory Federal Lawsuit !!!

The federal magistrate has finally made a decision on the FLSA lawsuit. The city has lost this one!! The FOP and PBPA should soon have some more information on it on their sites. In the new contracts it will state the department MUST grant you “time-due” as long as you put a slip in a reasonable amount of time, say 48 hours.

The city argued that they ARE VERY SHORT ON MANPOWER and can not grant time due so easily. HOWEVER - – Other bosses in the department bullshit that we have 13,500 sworn officers. SO . . What’s the REAL truth Mr. City Attorney???

Start bullshiting a federal judge and guess who he’s going to side with?
