So if more people die then more money is spent?



In our capitalistic society, yes.


Not sayin its right, but thats how it is.

This is also sort of America trying to say "f*ck you" to the terrorists.. by saying you can take our building but we'll waste all our fucking money building it back up.



Man, you ooze with liberal, commie rhetoric! Yeah its a waste of money to build a tower but we can waste it on social welfare, funding "art" that ain't worth the brush it was painted with, saving the spotted owl, and continuing the "war on global warming" which is an absolute FABRICATION to begin with. :roll:

It'd be better if we just rebuilt the towers, as they were, but with one extra story and stronger than ever before.

That would be a proper memorial, and that would be the proper response.

EDIT: Oh God, I'm only gonna say this once. Global Warming is real, we've had oceans that cover the earth before (hence aquatic fossils in arizona), however it is a natural phenomenon and humans aren't the cause of it. We certainly aren't helping, but we also aren't making it much worse than it would be naturally. Let's just get over ourselves, we aren't so amazing that we could heat up an entire planet.

The amount of money it costs is nothing in the grand scheme. It will make that back in under 10 years, as it will be some of the most desirable (and thus expensive) real estate in the United States. Remember, it isnt/wasnt a "national monument", but a very large and profitable office complex.

...and it will be again.

And if they did care why isn't it a success for the terrorists...we wasted 2 billion dollars and we show that we were affected by the attack so much that we build a memorial.

Although this may sound fucked up to some people...wouldn't ignoring everything that happened on 9/11 and going on with your lives show the "terrorists" that they didn't win?


You're right it's a shame. The people in Spain know how to do it right, everytime the Basques blow up something every village will hold parades and mock the terrorists. That seems a better way to show how powerless they are :roll: Really, you have a greater chance of dying in a car accident than getting killed in a terrorist attack.

I'm curious to know what you base this on. I'm not surprised by anything that Christian evangelicals come out with - but I must say I'm surprised by you...

I really think the best thing they could of done to honor the people who died was to make it a memorial park. It gives the terrorists less of a target it doesn't cost as much to build and who the hell cares about a building going up in New York when it's as common as seeds in an apple.
