Suzy K, I could not agree with you more. Having the US Govt giving 1.6 mil to each of the victims families is something the govt should do if THEY flew the jets! Bin Ladin should be the one paying(take the frozen assets) (and if countries like France and Spain have a problem with that then start a re eval on the aid and agreemants when make to them as well.)
This is a feelgood liberal response so some in the Govt can say "see we acted and we care" but like everything else the Govt does they make it worse. MORE PEOPLE NEED TO READ UP ON THE HISTORY OF THIS GREAT COUNTRY AND HOW IT WAS FORMED(WHAT IT TOOK)
GOVT WAS NOT DESIGNED OR CREATED TO PROTECT PEOPLE FROM LIFE. (God was/is) Govt is the New religion-we hear your pain and we can take care of your life. But if we have pray in shcool=look out!! Yes there is sep. from church and State but NOT religion from society.
Things happen even bad things but my God is there ANYBODY out there that has not had things go wrong for them!!!
Govt will never equal the love for ,money given, or real magical connections that everyday Americans have for the victims of 9/11 or for any others suffering. They are doing it right now(and that wont stop anytime soon)
so OK I'll get off the box now
