    Leave it to the U-S of A
    Making money in any conceivable way
    Videos of planes crashing into buildings
    American flags, two for five ninety –nine
    Buy a World Trade Center watch
    Made in Korea
    Keeping less than perfect time

    If we don’t do nothing else
    Americans make money
    We do that the best
    Even the American Red Cross
    Seriously failing the rip-off smell test

    It didn’t take long for the emotion to fade
    Back to business as usual
    Tee shirts with flags
    So cheaply they are made

    Commercialization
    Exploitation
    Pain fills the souls of the dead
    Me among the thousands
    Grieving for their loss
    Red, White, and Blue
    American greed at any cost

    BE

    Seems like

    one of the despicable character traits of the "Free and the Brave" is capitalism, rooted in sensationalism ~ at any cost. Makes you shake your head in disgust and embarrassment.

    This is straight up truth...

    thank you

    i've been trying to tell you

    it's all about the money

    how cares about the people?
    only if they are spending money

    sad sad

    and then they complain about people trying to make money off the world trade but isn't that the great american way?
