Lots of people in the Middle East DID celebrate in the streets after 9/11.  They paraded about, shot into the air, and burned American flags.  Though they seem to do that alot.  Maybe it takes their minds of the fact that they live in caves and dont have jobs.

I thought Bush and Kerry were both conservative in their outlooks. So Bush was more so, but no one could call Kerry a liberal, surely?

Sorry if I labelled you unfairly - but I did put a (?) after obviously!

Well, right no it's just after 9 am on Sunday morning. Already I'm writing - or should be!

Uh - yeah. ::)

Whaddya know - propaganda works!

What do you mean by that?  It is a fact that there was celebration by people in the Middle East after 9/11 (not all, just the f***ers who hate us)  Am I a sheep who follows the propaganda because I hate the terrorists who killed my countrymen, innocent people?  Does that make me a blind moron?

Kerry conservative? Hmm, not quite. But yeah, he's more a moderate liberal. Nowhere NEAR as conservative as Bush with his religious right wing agenda. And why is it so unconceivable to you that there just MAY have been people out there celebrating the attack? Do you realize that many of those people grow up being told what horrors we commit against mankind and how it's their job to put us in our place? A faction of course, not all. It can happen you know.

True Sandra. I'm sure there were many who celebrated what happened on 11 September. My point is merely that the famous clip of those people apparently celebrating was not what it was purported to be! The media DO lie and manipulate.

Kerry a conservative or a moderate liberal? From where we are, it seems as if there's nothing, IN PRACTICE, that really separates them. In Australia now, we have a very conservative party in power, and their main opposition is indistinguishable from them in practice (though rhetoric is different). Distinguishing between what politicians say, and what they DO, is really important I reckon.

Issues that seperate them: stem cell research-a HUGE issue, the war, abortion, gay rights. Although Kerry is wishy washy on the last two. Bush has supporters among the NRA and religious faction, which make him more 'obligated' to push through bills in their favor. I think Kerry is not as tied to those extremists. But yeah, it was the lesser of two evils type thing. I can't wait till 2008 when Hillary runs! Now THAT should be interesting!

to ease the tension here is a light hearted joke i found rather funny.

After getting nailed by a Daisy Cutter, Osama made his way to the pearly gates. There, he is greeted by George Washington.

"How dare you attack the nation I helped conceive!" yells Mr. Washington, slapping Osama in the face. Patrick Henry comes up from behind: "You wanted to end the Americans' liberty, so they gave you death!" Henry punches Osama on the nose. James Madison comes up next, and says, "This is why I allowed the Federal government to provide for the common defense!" He drops a large weight on Osama's knee.

Osama is subject to similar beatings from John Randolph of Roanoke, James Monroe and 65 other 18th-century American revolutionaries. As he writhes on the ground, Thomas Jefferson picks him up to hurl him back toward the gate where he is to be judged.

As Osama awaits his journey to his final very hot destination, he screams, "This is not what I was promised!"

An angel replies: "I told you there would be 72 Virginians waiting for you. What did you think I said?"

and i was in my room watching some serial on tv after school then sister entered to my room and switched on other TV

I don't remember exactly what I was doing when I heard,but I do remember listening to the radio for days,switching the channels when one station got through with news or music about John or The Beatles until I found another one. I just couldn't believe it. I wanted to hear and see everything about it. I still can't believe it.

I was just 3 when John died, and I didn't even know 'bout Beatles, since I was born in 1977...but later on when i started loving Beatles ( i was like 11) I found out that there was one Beatle missing, I said to myself: "who the hell...??" then I was told by my brother that it was John Lennon. I was really disappointed coz actually he had just started to be my favourite Beatle. Pfff now I'm 27 and i've already cried for Lennon's death, yeah coz I cry a bit every time I listen to "Because".....

I was cleaning my room and watching Monday Night Football on t.v when a special report came on saying there had been an unidentified man shot in New York and that the man who was shot was reportedly one of the ex-Beatles.  Then about ten minutes later Howard Cosell anounced to the world the death of John Lennon.  Cosell said many great things about John.  I was so stunned and numb for weeks.  I missed the Kennedy assassination so I don't know about that but for one week John's death brought the world together in a way I hadn't seen before in my life.  I think it was the end of my innocence I finally gathered that the world wasn't such a great place after all!  I remember it like yesterday.  Unfortunately I'll never forget it.

I'm sure there must've been a similar thread like this before but I thought I'd start a fresh one since we're nearing the 25th anniversary of that fateful day. What are yor memories?

Me, I was 23 at the time sitting in a barracks at Great Lakes Naval Training Center in Wisconsin. Also known as bootcamp. Our Company Commander came in on the morning of Dec 9th and ordered us to attention and announced that John Lennon had been shot and killed. Naturally most of us freaked out, but only so much. When you're in bootcamp, you don't think about things like this too much.

It wasn't 'til after I got out of bootcamp in Jan that it really started to sink in. I was transferred to Orlando and was sitting in a bar one night and Imagine was playing and then it just hit me like a freight train and started blubbering like a little kid. The barmaid looked at me and came up and said "You're not the first when we play that song".
