Osama Bin Laden's actual quote concerning 9/11: "I am not involved in the 11 September attacks in the United States, as a Muslim I try my best to avoid telling a lie - I had no knowledge of these attacks, nor do I consider the killing of innocent women, children, and other humans an appreciable act! I have already said that we are against the American system, not against its people, whereas in these attacks, the common American people have been killed."

Definitely. I agree. Music is another great art form that can powerfully affect our emotions / mindset / and the quality of our day. which is why I love reggae music, it is usually uplifting and positive, sometimes strong and rebellious, always irie mon! (which is why bob marley and peter tosh were such threats to the establishment and had to be taken out)
Thanks again for saidit and for keeping it going!
'Lobbyists Are Here. Goldman Sachs Is Here. Where's Labor? Activists?' Tlaib and Ocasio-Cortez Pull Back Curtain on Corporate-Sponsored Freshman Orientation by EndlessSunflowers in WayOfTheBern
"One of the best parts of Ocasio-Cortez's arrival in D.C. as a new leader is that she notices, and is revolted by, the corrupt, corporatist rituals that are so embedded in D.C. culture that most politicians and journalists barely notice them, let alone find them objectionable or odd," noted The Intercept's Glenn Greenwald

NASA announces their return to the moon. This time to create a sustainable outpost. by MojaveCoyote in SundogsPlace
Sounds great! If they're being honest with themselves I wonder what their plan is to engage whoever was watching Apollo from the lip of the crater. There is still so much mystery, so many secrets about those missions. I wonder if we'll ever get honest and open leadership in these Divided States of America

The Empire Keeps Proving Julian Assange Right About Everything by EndlessSunflowers in conspiracy

"Julian Assange founded an innovative leak outlet on the premise that corrupt power can be fought with truth and transparency. Corrupt power responded by silencing, persecuting and smearing him. In so doing they succeeded in slowing down the leaks, minimizing the impact of publications, and nullifying Assange’s ability to defend himself, and in exchange they have publicly proved that his thesis was, and is, absolutely correct. There is a power establishment which uses lies and secrecy to manipulate and deceive us, and it hates having the light of truth shone upon it more than anything. We know that for certain now. There is no doubt whatsoever."

"By showing so much, Ocasio-Cortez is completely demystifying the process....
She's bringing everyone in, which, in a representative democracy, is exactly what should be happening, especially at a time when we have the ability to be more transparent than ever before. It's also what's necessary to get young people interested and involved in politics. We don't need to be making the process seem any more complicated than it actually is, and we don't need to scare away perfectly eligible candidates from running because they don't know what they're getting themselves into. What we do need is the Ocasio-Cortezs of the world to continue being open and honest about what it means to serve their communities, and then we need even more history-making young people to join her."

"Remember, Remember, the 5th of November, The Gunpowder Treason and plot. I know of no reason why Gunpowder Treason should ever be forgot." Guy Fawkes by EndlessSunflowers in quotes
I like this excerpt from https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Guy_Fawkes_Night
Gathering wood for the bonfire increasingly became the province of working-class children, who solicited combustible materials, money, food and drink from wealthier neighbours, often with the aid of songs. Most opened with the familiar "Remember, remember, the fifth of November, Gunpowder Treason and Plot". The earliest recorded rhyme, from 1742, is reproduced below alongside one bearing similarities to most Guy Fawkes Night ditties, recorded in 1903 at Charlton on Otmoor:
Don't you Remember,
The Fifth of November,
'Twas Gunpowder Treason Day,
I let off my gun,
And made'em all run.
And Stole all their Bonfire away. (1742)
I agree with you completely and in my more extreme moments I go so far as to think that the alcohol haze and football worship are by design to keep people too miserable and dumb so that they don't even care what's really going on, they just dismiss it all as crazy conspiracy theories. They don't even know which way is up. Damn. Those poor fools : ) Thanks again for saidit, it's been going well
