It's time for our first tacky 9/11 10th anniversary ad.

(click ad, via) Never Forget. To buy things on credit.
Via USA Discounters, who lost so much in the months after the terrorist attacks on American consumerism. USA Discounters, "your incredible credit store," helps "military and government employees with their shopping needs with automatic financing. We have a low monthly payment to fit your budget and immediate delivery!" That's part of the story. They also service normal everyday bankrupt and bad-credit people. And they are not very popular with some of their customers.
The towering copy is the Declaration of Independence.
Try flying your hijacked planes through that, evildoers.
Meanwhile, keep shopping, heroic debt-ridden troops.
Ad agency: Levenson and Hill, Dallas.
Advertisers just can't leave those twin towers alone.

All that justified copy, graphically speaking, the ad would have packed more of a punch if the 4th paragraph in the first column and the third paragraph in the other were set flush-left, rag-right.

...with some singed——but still readable——words.
