FIRST RESPONDERS BILL PASSES THE US SENATE
http://www.politico.com/news/stories/1210/46717.html

Unfortunately the Senate shrank the fund from $7.2 billion to $4.3 billion. But I hope the House passes it, as this is paid for, will not add to the deficit, and is the best the Republicans in the Senate are going to offer.

Another Christmas Miracle! Just wow.

That's good to see. Politics should not be an issue when it comes to the 9/11 responders.

My tax dollars should be an issue......I don't mind that people wanted to know how it was going to be paid for.....I just wish it didn't happen on this bill.

We are in a day and age UNFORTUNATELY....that we cannot hand out billions of dollars and not have solid oversight already set in place.

The days of...."lets pass the bill to see whats in it" have gone....

But, I agree.....politicizing this particular bill looked VERY, VERY BAD....

I am so glad the responders Bill passed. What a great Christmas present for these cats.

I feel that if it wasn't for Jon Stewart this wouldn't have gone through so fast. Am I wrong in thinking that?

Nah, even some Fox News Pundits said that he probably had a lot to do with it.

I have heard analysts say that it was both Jon Stewart and Shepard Smith who got the momentum moving. Stewart doing three segments about it in as many weeks created media attention and when Shep Smith blasted about two dozen Republican senators BY NAME last week, it put the pressure on the right over the top. It got to the point that only Karl Rove would come on Fox and try to spin some BS about why it was filibustered last week (no GOP senator would do it on camera).

But it does seem The Daily Show and one of Fox News's only respectable news anchors (the other being Chris Wallace) actually had a positive effect on the national discourse. Part of me is sad that it took a comedian and cable news on a partisan network to get media attention that put fire to the feet of the politicians. But I'm thankful that it did happen and the bill is passed.

Sorry to bump this thread & if it's already being discussed elsewhere or was, then delete or merge my post wherever. Anyway, was on a site I visit and they posted a story on a video that was shot from the point of view of an NYPD helicopter.

Goes on to say that The National Institute of Standards and Technology asked for the video - which, I have to say, is a hard watch (it really is. Didn't make it halfway myself) - through the Freedom of Information Act. Cryptome posted the video.

Here's the video.

VIDEO-CLick to Watch!:

Nice it took 10 years to release that video and they edit out all the crucial moments.

Surprised. Not at all.

Feel incredibly bad for the victims and it was horrifying to watch.

I won't write my opinions on what happened that day but evil is the best way to put it. Guilty consciousness must be heavy to this day but everybody sooner or later pays for what they've done.

Michael Moore carries absolutely no weight regarding anything.

Why did you even bring up Moore?

He's just a media junkie. Loves the attention.

I was just responding to your post. And I was wrong. He only carries one type of weight.

He's liberalism at it's most absolute vile.

IMO the American media bears some of the responsibility for this for giving someone as irrelevant as Terry Jones a national spotlight.
Hundreds of copy-cats burned qurans on 9/11 anyway, and they wouldn't have if the media hadn't turned the Terry Jones incident into a national crisis in the first place. And yet, even though many of them ended up on youtube the media remained totally mum on any of them. The only burning that got press was the guy who burned the pages at the site of the cordoba house and lost his job as retaliation, but the coverage was pretty minimal and they forgot about him 2 weeks later.

In other words, the Terry Jones burning was only a "crisis" because the media decided to make one out of it. You know they've successfully created a media circus when they've got the freaking president of the USA calling a guy in Florida on the phone telling him to to burn a stack of paper that he bought at Barnes and Noble.

Yep, I think some of, if not a good portion of the blame goes to our media. These types of people, IMO, wouldn't exist if the media didn't give them a platform to spew their disgusting hate from.....
