im just going based off of how i heard about it, and considering i was flipping through channels and saw it on CNN its probably completely skewed.
im trying to keep this as far away from the usual stupidity i cause in political threads but whatever. i can understand what you are saying but this is what i got from my friend in the Marine Corps. essentially, what he heard was Obama, or someone in his camp so to speak, wants to turn Sept 11 into a community projects day when people go to pick up trash and other crap like that.
the care packages, is fucking awesome and i did that after i got laid off so that i would get out of the house. except, i put chewing tobacco, porn, and caffeine pills in mine because honestly, soldiers like the cookies and letters, but stuff like chewing tobacco and the others give them instant gratification and something to do or that they can use.
if the day became a day where the people would go to make care packages im all for it. but based on what i heard from my friend of which he heard its about picking up trash and shit.
