The Onion: ‘9/11 Conspiracy Theories Ridiculous’ – Al Qaeda

Today marks the 7th anniversary of the terrorist attacks of 9/11. I do not wish to make light of this solemn day in our Country’s history or to down play the lives of all who died on this day 7 years ago, but I feel it necessary to point out to people the shear lunacy of people that adhere to the falsehoods of the “9/11 Truth” movement.

The 9/11 Truth believers wants all to think that our government was behind the terrorist attacks that day, which is something that I just can not believe in. It just makes no sense and it takes away from the memories of those who lost their live and is hurtful to all that lost family or friends that day.

So, with a heavy heart and the memory of the events which took place forever etched in my mind, I give you this video to watch. Maybe while watching it you will crack a small smile and have your spirits raised slightly at the absurdity to which the 9/11 Truth movement is all about.

TOWN CENTER: Middletown Loses Appeal


Mountain Hill LLC, the developer behind the controversial Town Center in Middletown, won a major victory today in court.

The State Appellate court ruled today 3/2 against Middletown in its fight to stop former State Assemblyman and life long resident of Middletown Joseph Azzolina and his family, from building the Town Center.

Joseph Azzolina and family are the principals of the Mountain Hill, L.L.C. group

I don’t have all of the facts but from what I have heard, the court today handed down a 40 page ruling that agreed on all of the major points of Mountain Hill’s appeal, basically stating that there was a conflict of interest between the township and Mountain Hill.

It seems that the court came to this conclusion because evidence was presented that showed that Middletown had encourage Mr. Azzolina and his family to purchase land and develop it as the Town Center. It was also shown that at one point, former Mayor Joan Smith had done work for Mountain Hill on this project early on in its development.

This story is still developing and more information should be made available in the next few days, but from my understanding Middletown has 20 day to appeal this ruling to the State Supreme Court and by all indications that is exactly what will be done.
