I was home when I received the call to turn on the TV on the morning of 9/11 so I was able to watch and tape much of what was broadcast on the networks.
I rarely if ever watch TV, mostly I view it as a programming / propaganda device, and when I do watch, such as on that morning, I am always wondering "what are they trying to get me to believe, how are they trying to shape my mind and the mind of others".
I was in that mode on the morning of 9/11 and all through the day as network banner after banner spelled out "America Under Attack" with all the talking heads reading their scripting to the masses. It was so obviously a propaganda machine churning out stuff to shape your beliefs, but if you were just taking notes as I was, none of it would stick.
You have to actively practice this mode if you are going to watch any TV, especially the staged "State of the Nation" so called discussions where "experts" seem to be arguing among themselves. This stuff is cleverly scripted to shape opinion. It is not a casual discussion.
And after watching it if you are not careful, you will surely come away with an opinion, the one they want you to have.
As the day wore on I could see where the anger would be growing in the American people, because nothing was put into perspective and an agenda was being created. As the week wore on the banners changed, the agenda became clearer "America Under Attack" changed to "America Mourns" then "America At War".
I am very sorry and it saddens me deeply that 3000 innocent Americans were killed on that day. Their deaths must have been unimaginably horrible, and the fright they must have experienced makes my skin crawl when I think about being crushed and ground into pieces by the falling debris. I imagine "what if my own son or daughter had been there that day, how would I feel" and trust me it is a nightmare to imagine.
So on that day was the beginning of the programming that would cause lots of young people to sign up to fight in a foreign land and take their anger for 9/11 out on innocent dark skinned people who had nothing to do with the "attack". And in the following years hundreds of thousands of Iraqis and Afghans were slaughtered as vengeance, men women and children.
Even if you take the stance that we were indeed attacked by foreign terrorists, our response was totally disproportionate and unfocused, shameful and not befitting a nation that calls itself "God fearing or Christian or even fair".
Funny thing, no one on the media is outraged when ten or twenty thousand die prematurely from a bad drug churned out by the pharma industry. We don't mobilize to take out the internal terrorists that make the billions on bad legal drugs. There is no big media campaign "America Fights Back at Big Pharma".
They are protected by the gangster state and the complicit media.
End of Rant.

Just because it has a patent application or is patented does not always mean it really works.
