California People forgot already....they could care less about 9/11

I mean , they voted for Obama, they obviously forgot already.

Liberals have ruined the country, after all liberalism was the cause of 9/11...


USA is my country....if liberals were in power during Pearl Harbor, we would all be talking Japanese......

Very disappointed by the organization of the event! Reading the event times of the schedule states that they will do the walk at 11AM of the military, fire and police people. We watched them walk and we knew that by 11:30AM we had to be at the civic center to hear the national anthem and hear the speakers speak as well have the moment of silence that was scheduled at 11:50AM!

Well.. we get there at 11:30AM to hear a guy that can "Barely" play on his "Electric Guitar" the National Anthem and then hear that it's a band playing most of the time! "What?" Along with another couple that left we decided to leave as well, we were disappointed that at 11:35AM there would be "no" speaker! Walking the rest of the event, my spouse and I noticed that at 11:50AM the helicopter flew by but we an hear that the band was still playing.

Where is the respect? I agree with you California People Forgot! My husband and I though born and raised California will never forget September 11th and we proudly wore our New York Shirts in pride during the festival!

The event was very much unorganized and wished that they had done a little time run of the event, it doesn't take that long to walk from Evelyn to the Civic Center area! :(

Holding the Art and Wine festival on the anniversary of the 9/11 attacks may not be in as bad taste as it first appears. Afterall the attacks themselves may not be as they first appear.
Some people may be surprised, others may at first be offended, many will be doubtful when they learn that increasingly engineers and scientists are saying that there is mounting evidence that the three World Trade Center towers were brought down by controlled demolition rather than by fires. You can judge for yourself the cause of the third skyscraper to collapse that day by searching "wtc7 compilation" videos on YouTube. But you shouldn't have to judge for yourself. Why hasn't any scientist or engineer at Stanford University, SJSU, NASA Ames Research Center, Lockheed Martin, SRI, or anywhere else in Silicon Valley been willing to publicly defend the official explanation for the collapse? So far nobody has attempted to explain the high temperatures pre- and post-collapse, correlate the massive dust jets to the motion of the buildings, the unusually high degree of symmetry for a buckling phenomenon, or account for WTC7's 2+ seconds (100 vertical feet) of pure gravitational free fall. If you know any engineer or scientist, challenge them to explain the cause as anything other than a highly engineered, covert demolition. The typical response is to brush you off, to ridicule you, to say "that's not my field", or to say "I've looked into those theories and there's nothing to them". Indaquate for any technical person, irresponsible for any citizen. It's not that people forgot; rather, they're avoiding the issue. After nine years, can you find any local engineer willing to explain it in terms of engineering?
