and this is why we cut taxes for the wealthy, and social services, while drilling blind patriotism into our youth, so that we can maintain a permanent underclass: we need Cannon Fodder.

This is almost too ridiculous to comment on. A memorial for a tragedy as grave as this should be simple, somber, and at the same time a bit hopeful.

Can you imagine the Pearl Harbor memorial with inscriptions like "What did Roosevelt really know?" "You don't defeat war with more war"
I agree and. . .

I would agree, no politics at all. But Let's Roll didn't start out as a political statement, it's been turned into one by some people perhaps. I have a United We Stand t-shirt that I bought shortly after 9/11, I don't consider wearing that shirt a political statement .I would think it was funny and sort of lame if people assumed certain things about my beliefs, political and otherwise, from that shirt-or from my little God Bless America pillow that my Mom gave me. Some political statements are blatant and maybe some are in the eye of the beholder, and are colored by one's political views and other factors. The ones in Arizona appear to be blatant.
Perhaps you didn't get the memo? The Republican Party recently purchased the rights to patriotism and all expressions of love of country.

I say "Let's roll" all the time and had been saying it for years before 9/11. There's nothing particularly heroic or patriotic about it. I don't think the person who said it on United 93 intended it to be that way either. It was just a phrase he used a lot.

You might as well put "Let's bounce" on the memorial.
