DUmmie FUnnies 01-12-06 ("Were you more traumatized on 9/11/01 or 11/03/04?")
For the vast majority of NORMAL Americans, the answer to the following question is obvious: "Were you more traumatized on 9/11/01 or 11/03/04?" However, in DUmmieland the vast majority of the DUmmies (70%) believed Election Day 2004 to be much more traumatic as you can see in this THREAD of the same name. Yes, their petty little politics takes precedence over a terrorist attack on the USA. Of course, most DUmmies subscribe to either the LIHOP or MIHOP theories in which the EVIL Bush Regime was either an accomplice or active participant in the 9-11 attacks. So let us now watch the DUmmies whine about their "horrible" traumas in Bolshevik Red while the commentary of your humble correspondent, remembering the traumatized Susan Estrich taking solace in too many bottles of "victory" champagne on Election Night, is in the [brackets]:
Poll question: Were you more traumatized on 9/11/01 or 11/03/04?
[70% voted for 11/03/04 and only 20% voted for 9/11/01. These results are a big surprise but ONLY if you don't know the DUmmies.]
December 12, 2000. Worst day of all.
[When Algore tossed in the towel? Or when SCOTUS voted to uphold the law? Oh, so much worse than 9-11.]
my answer too. I went into shock then, haven't come out
[And have NEVER returned to reality.]
Ditto. December 12, 2000 was the worst day for America in ages. Appalling.
[Terrible. Terrible. I must console the poor victims of 12-12-02.]
After seeing the way they stole 2000, I had no doubt they would steal 2004. I had been expecting something like 911 for years, so it wasn't a shock to me at all, I was expecting worse.
[May I place you firmly into the MIHOP column?]
Actually for me it was Dec 9, 2000 that is when Scalia stayed the vote count - I remember exactly where I wss when I heard - I had just finished doing Christmas shopping at toys r us and I heard on the car radio that the pig had stayed the count. At that moment I knew it was over. My neighbor kept trying to convince me over the next few days that it wasn't over but and I kept telling her you wait and see they are giving this thing to the freak.
[It was like the JFK assassination. Everybody remembers exactly what they were doing on Dec. 9, 2000 when it was announced that Scalia stayed the vote count. It was just that tragic. A horrible memory frozen in our minds forever.]
same here. That date was the worst. But Sept. 11, 2001 was bad too.
[In DUmmieland, 9-11 was bad but not nearly as tragic as 11-03-04 or 12-12-00 or 12-09-00.]
As much as I mourn the deaths of innocent people on 9/11, nothing matches the disaster caused by the selection of 2000.
[I'm sure the 9-11 victims' families will be happy to hear that.]
On 9/11 I was in shock and it took me a long time to realize how bad it really was. I was also very worried about my family members in NYC but fortunately they were all OK.
On 11/03/04, I was still in shock, but I also was clinically depressed. I know what a clinical depression is cause I went through one about 10 years ago, and that's exactly how I felt the day after election day. I wore black, and I was not the only one. In fact I was at a meeting that day with 6 of my co-workers and we were ALL wearing black.
Different traumas, different responses,
[Of course different responses, DUmmie Plaid Adder. 11/03/04 was so traumatic it required the wearing of black but 9-11?...Naw!]
9/11. Maybe you had to be there.
[LOUSY FREEPER TROLL!!!]
November 3. Because America was officially dead. I was deeply depressed for months.
[And your mind was numb for YEARS.]
I was shaken up after 9/11. I thought I was going to have a nervous breakdown after 11/3.
[You certainly have your DUmmie priorities in order.]
On 9/11, I thought we could overcome it. On Nov. 3, 2004...
I knew we were looking at devastating trouble that we may not overcome.
[We shall NOT overcome... We shall NOT overcome!]
I cried for WEEKS after 911,
I'm STILL crying over the 2000 election thievery.
[A 4 year sobfest over election 2000 vs only a few weeks of tears for 9-11. YUP! You certainly ARE a DUmmie.]
No contest, November 2004. People die all the time. It's not that often that a democracy bites the dust
[Your quick writeoff of the 9-11 deaths will certainly be appreciated by their families.]
Going out on a limb here...
Neither of the above--I'm going with the day Scalito is officially confirmed. The end of democracy as we knew it.
[Thanx for going out on a limb... Now would you kindly saw it off?]
It's like the difference between being beat up and raped.
You could be raped without being physically harmed, but the psychological damage would last a lot longer than the bruises and broken bones of the beating. 9/11 hurt far more emotionally, but what happened in the last two presidential elections will cause more long term damage to our country.
[So 9-11 was only liked being beat up while Election 2000 and 2004 was like being raped? Who mugged your mind?]
OMG. 50k people die on US roads every year. 911 was nothing compared to the 5th column attack on democracy itself, from right here within our own country, by our own fellow citizens. Not only that, they have succeeded with election theft several times, and with each passing 'election,' american democracy slips that much closer to death. You have allowed yourself to be whippped into a frenzy of fear against the Foreign Enemy, while you disregard much greater threats to the health of america and its citizens which are present around you every day.
[In DUmmieland the 9-11 deaths were a only a slight statistical blip.]
9-11 happened to other people, 11-3 happened to me directly.
[It's all about MEEEEEEEEEEE!!!]
i haven't been able to look at crowds of people in the same way since 11/3/04. couldn't believe they could STILL be that brain dead..........
[And your post proves that it is YOUR brain that is on life support.]
I was far more traumatized by 11/3/04
After four years of utter failure I thought the American people would have had enough and whomever the Dems put up would win in a landslide. It didn't happen and people fell for the swiftboaters (for which the response was too long in coming on the Democratic side). I became REALLY depressed. I so looked forward to that election, hoping that Bush would be like his daddy, a one termer. I have no hopes the American people will choose differently in 2006 or 2008. So what if we do...working class people do not control the voting machines.
[Cheer up! You can always futilely deface a Diebold truck as DUmmie AtomicKitten did.]
Like it or not, fair or not, threads like this are what lets people spread lies and propaganda about this site.
[Please forgive me for quoting you WORD FOR WORD in the DUmmie FUnnies.]
are you insane? Do you know what some people have gone through because of 9/11?? As someone who was directly affected by it, I take offense to the comparison. I was traumatized, and my life never recovered from it. I'm still dealing with the fall-out. I'd rather have a Republican president than another 9/11 any day.
[LOUSY FREEPER TROLL!!!]
12/12/04 as well. but 11.03 more than 911 - and I was THERE!
Saw the towers fall with my own eyes - but didn't cry the way I did those other occasions.
[12/12/04??? What made you sob that day more than on 9-11? You didn't happen to have a sign that said something about "Count All 88"?]
'04 Was Worse
[Far, far worse...in the DUmmie Alternate Reality.]
What is wrong with you People? Didn't you see the planes crash into the towers? Didn't you see the pictures of Pentagon and the debris field in Pennsylvania? Those poor Pilots/ Flight Crews that were most likely sliced to death..
This poor innocent people who woke up thinking it was a beautiful day only to witness the end of their lives in a fire-ball? Did you look at all the faces of the Police and Firemen who rushed into the towers saving as many Americans only to be pulverize embedded into the concrete dust forever lost? Sickening that so many here feel the re-election was such a dark day in American history... Sad...sad...sad...
[Please send out invitations to your Tombstoning ceremony.]
Thanks for visiting. Enjoy your short stay!
[An aware DUmmie realizing that the previous poster is about to be Tombstoned for making entirely too much sense.]
11/03/04. Here we had a chance to evict the evil Bush Inc and what happened? Ugh, it makes me sick just thinking about it. Then we hear the reports on Diebold and voter intimidation. Needless to say, I couldn't think straight for weeks.
[NEWSFLASH!!! You STILL can't think straight.]
Funny thing is 9/11 didn't really phase me. I didn't cry or anything. It was like my subconscious was waiting for it to happen or something. But November 2nd, 2004 I stayed in bed most of the day crying and still crying now.
[You certainly have your DUmmie priorities straight.]
11-03-04. After the horror of Bush's fault in 9/11, I thought we had the chance to make it right, but the shock of election night now impacts generations to come...
[May I invite you to the MIHOP?]
The thing I regret most about 9/11 is how much damn power it gave Bush, how much he relies on it as a shield, how much the country went along with it for a while there. I live for the day when we are far enough away from it that it doesn't play such a role in our psyche in this country. Because of it, we fight a war against a concept. Like watching someone trying to fight air.
[You've certainly placed your finger on the TRUE tragedy of 9-11: It gave Bush too much power. Everything else is secondary...at least in the DUmmieland Alternate Reality.]
