    Has the bullsyht finally hit the fan?
    people screaming and can't understand
    how these soils can AGAIN be subject
    to an act of such disrespect?
    If you're AWAKE you know the deal
    that this country is a kin to the twins steal and kill
    wreaking havoc across the world
    with overt and covert operations killing
    man, woman, boy and girl
    not American yet they are human all the same
    now the rules to this game have been changed
    see, the monopolizer has now been sent to jail
    to experience a devastating similar hell
    created to keep people in check
    it's sort of like having a knife held to your neck
    you can move but only so far before death
    and if you want freedom one false move and
    your esssence is all that is left
    the unfortunate thing is innocent people perish
    in this push-pull game of global power governments cherish
    so now many peole stand with their mouths open
    cause now the U.S is the played token.....

    Boomerang comes back
    thrown by immoral powers
    equal reaction............................................

    How can one be so quick to assume that this is
    really an international terroristic act? Ya see
    okla(HOME)a was an act of internal indigestion
    that the beast had not some middle eastern
    group / so many disenfranchised and slighted people
    by their introspection (and I'm not talking about blak folk)
    prepare on the daily and plot to destroy the lot
    and Amerikkka still points fingers across the
    waters / possibilities abound about
    who
    what
    why
    where
    when
    did everything go wrong?
    yet the reality is humanity is on a downfall

    Is there a such thing as nonviolent revolution?

    (c)2001 blakverb "off da top thinkin"

    ***It is a tragedy what happened in NY. Many of our poetic brothers and sisters reside in that and surrounding areas let's keep them in our prayers. As the So'ja said this ain't over.

    FYI: There is an interesting article on the www.alternet.org site it's titled "Wanted: Enemy to justify $344 Billion dollar War Budget" check it out.

    confirmation of thoughts

    you know what is said about pointing the finger? three points right back at you. Me and a friend discussed that it could've been internal.

    So'ja, I'm thankful that you are okay. I thought about you and others this morning as I cried and prayed on my knees.

    I'm listening So'ja...

    I agree with you Blakverb......

    While it is tragic, the lost of lives in NYC, Washington, Pennsylvania,(my heart goes out to the victims). American people should not be so niave to not see the bigger picture in this situation. The media lets you view what they want you to see, the same devastation happened when America bombed civilian areas in Iraq(where was the outrage and the sympathy then) which also produced mass loss of life and destruction. Patriotism should not lead us blindly into a situation that may send "Our" sons and daughters to their death, because all these officials who are shouting revenge!, revenge! will be safely tuck away in their bomb shelters when the s*** hits the fan. World War 3 could very well be the end of all of us................Epiphany:heart:

    If these people are responsible, they should be tried and found guilty, the same way Timothy McVeigh was.....this should not lead to war but a lesson on how hate and lack of tolerance leads to(which is on the rise here in the United states) dangerous acts that affect us all.
    pray for us all..................

    YES!!! YES!!! yo son you place the hammer dead square on the nail. The u.s. got way too big and cocky. They thought no one would dare step in their backyard as they go trampling all over the world destroying and killing for the sake of "PEACE". My heat goes out to the loss. My compnay had an office in the WTC and there were 1100 employees on staff. Most who arrived to work by 8:00a.m. so they were there. My heart bleeds for the loss but this country needs to udnerstand and remeber from Vietnam. When you come to the aid of another country who no one seems to support, y6ou put yourself in a position of repercussions. We are the only nation allied with Israel and Pelstine (as well as many others) don't like it too much. As things heast up in the Holy Land, sooner of later it would spill over into this country. Why do i say this? Because Bin Laden is a supporter of the Palestinian cause and if it was up to him he would extinguish all non Muslim political systems from that country. This is not about a religious belief but a politiacl attack so as many condemn the attacks, the U.S. must wake aup and see that they have gotten laxed in their protection of their own country...

    Once again bro', you hit the nail on the head...

    my thoughts leave the obvious and go
    directly to the spiritual concerning these
    horrid events...
    reading Revelation and Daniel and Ellen G. White...
    we are in the last days and
    you know sin can't be explained if we
    discontinue placing blame and focus on
    the bigger picture
    if Jesus were to burst through the clouds
    and you awaken from your slumber
    noticing that the outside is brighter than
    you've ever known all your life
    people running screaming oh rocks hide me...
    would you be welcoming your saviour
    or would you hide under your covers?
    now is the time for humble introspect and
    inventory...
    I could care less who is behind it all...
    am I right with the Lord?
    we all have been shown that we have no control
    over these disasters
    the symbols of our economy have been demolished
    and our defense has been attacked
    4 planes hijacked on american soil...
    who can save us in these situations but
    Jesus?
    and if we perish in the situation,
    will we be right with Jesus?
    that's my focus...
