All I have to say about 9/11 anymore can be surmised perfectly through this graphic. What has happened is a national disgrace and absolutely nothing more. Anyone pretending otherwise is either hypocritical or simply delusional.

  • Irony blindness: Kansas high school teacher [pictured] forced by parents to apologize after stepping on U.S. flag during lesson on free speech.

  • President Obama: “Americans […] refuse to live in fear”. Glenn Greenwald, erm, disagrees.

  • Canadian doctors in Toronto, ON reject proposed quackery-friendly guidelines. More of this, please (particularly in the U.S.).

  • Paul Krugman vents about post-9/11 climate of politicized fear. Right-wingers wax outrage. Being called out on moral grounds by Donald Rumsfeld is particularly rich.

  • Ray Comfort’s latest argument against abortion: Yahoo! Answers users. #facepalm (Note: I also left a perfectly civil comment refuting some of the claims from the quoted “Best Answer”, which has since been deleted by an administrator, even though it had accumulated 11 thumbs-up. How very telling.)

  • You will never think of balloon animals the same way. Ever. Again.
