YOU Can't Handle the 9/11 Truth
(Editor's Note: In the days leading up to the tenth anniversary of the bringing down of the twin towers in NYC, "the Bear" will feature an article each day which will, hopefully shed some light and bring some insight into the truth of 9/11. I realize that this is a "touchy" subject. I expect to receive many emails from readers whose "comfort zones" have been violated. But now, after ten years, 36% of Americans believe 9/11 was an inside job. In the same poll, only 28% of the people even knew that a third building (building seven) fell. Building seven is the "canary in the coal mine". One cannot watch the collapse of building seven without realizing, beyond any shadow of a doubt, that its collapse was a result of "controlled demolition". The fact that the planning and preparation required to "pull" a skyscraper (or three) takes several months (more if its occupied) and the odds of building seven being brought down on 9/11 without prior knowledge of the planned destruction of the twin towers is preposterous, and it's a fact that has been conveniently overlooked by the bulk of the sheeple. It's one thing to be born stupid. It's an unfortunate result of being genetically challenged. It's another thing, entirely, to be "conveniently stupid" or stupid on purpose (SOP). Being stupid on purpose is a devolutionary act. It is the antithesis of "survival of the fittest". It is an act that merits a Darwin Award and it is the result of being effectively "dumbed down" for generations. It's an affliction that, as a result of the dumbing down, is running rampant in our country today. Until the sheeple wake up, and the perps of the 9/11 attack on America are routed out, and exposed to the light of day, the future of America will remain on extremely shaky ground. Neither you nor your kids will have a happy, secure future so long as you allow madmen to run the world. - JSB)
