    It's Open

    Congratulations to the construction crews, financiers, politicians, corporate execs and all the corpses that helped make this happen. One World Trade Center is finally complete.

    In case you all haven't noticed, I'm being a facetious and sarcastic @$$hole. There is no cause for celebration here. This building is only the combined result of decades of malfeasance, mal-investment and interventionist policies into the domestic affairs of this nation and others. Tinkering in the economies, sovereignty and cultural affairs of this nation and others is all in a day's work for politicians, financiers and corporate execs. This is all in the name of profit and like a bunch of Ferengi, where there's opportunity, there's profit to be made. Even the death of almost 3,000 Americans is just another profit opportunity.

    But hey. They now have a new and shiny building. What's more is that it's 1776 feet high which makes it a slap to the face of any true patriotic American. What more can be expected than to insult the collective intelligence of the American people by killing them, forcing them to clean up the mess, having them rebuild for wages less than livable and then forcing them to pay the bill; all while stripping them of their rights. What more can be expected? This is a true milestone and testament to crony capitalism.

    On a lighter note. The building does indeed look beautiful. The only thing missing is the crimson color of blood from the building.

    You make it seem like the workers are getting the same treatment as the ones in Dubai. If that were the case, there would been a large civil lawsuit and several protests. I think this tower represents moving on. And there's still a memorial next to it and in it. I doubt anyone born before 5-10 years or more prior to 9/11 would not remember that event.

    I still remember the very day I got the news while I was at school and I don't even live in the US. The only problem I see with this is that it paints a huge target on them. So unless that building has escape pods in each room or is airplane-proof, I don't see why ISIS wouldn't wanna target it.

    To them it's like "omgz noes u r all infidel scum westerners! we r butthurt n mad about ur culture, so we gonna $#@! u up cuz we live in our own little fantasy world where everyone praises Allah and is a member of the ISIS players discount club! infidel fridays!"

    That's the spirit USA.
    Yeah there are problems and political bickering and all that but in the end you're still #1

    If the terrorists could've pulled off something like 911 again they'd done it already.

    Dream on ISIS if you had balls you would've attacked Israel already - but you know how that would turn out for you...

    Paying below fair market value of what is considered a livable wage in New York City is on par with the treatment the workers at Dubai were subject to. The standard of living in New York City is scarily expensive.

    As for the rest of your post: my worries have never been about foreigners or foreign powers or entities. My worries have always been with the political, financial and corporate elite. They will do anything for profit and they view death as just another source of it.

    It's not the new tower. It's everything. The USA has been changing since WW2, with the growth of the military industrial complex, bullying other nations, the war on drugs (note: our culture), and after 9/11 is opened a road map for the Government to lead us into a Police State. A decade of useless war spending trillions when we have people dying on the streets or working 2-3 jobs and getting nowhere in life, putting our newest generation of thinkers and artist into mass debt just to get them an education in a withering job market where workers are massively underpaid.

    Our quality of healthcare and education is some of lowest in the first world, and we have one of the largest wealth inequalities on the globe. Our rights are being voided with secret court meetings and big companies publicly collude with politicians to further their corporate agenda.

    I remember after 9/11 when everyone went war-hungry for revenge, anyone who apposed war or retaliation was called un-American, or even a terrorist. Fear-mongering and group mentality did wonders and the corrupt powers in this nation took full advantage. Criticizing the country today gets you called a filthy socialistic, or you're told to leave the country. It's been shown wanting to better your nation makes you a traitor -- complacency is the ideal of the True American Patriot.

    They have more feet than most of us and some of them have the inches to prove it.
