    Considering that in 1931, the Empre State building went up in just 1 year, the time it is taking to put our beloved Trade Centers back up in this day and age with all the advanced technology out there is an abomination. These buildings should have been in place and occupied at least 8 years ago. The longer it takes, the longer the idiots on the other side of the world can get their plans perfectly in place to do it all over again. I can see them know sitting in their caves rubbing their hands together planning their devious schemes just patiently waiting, When will we ever learn?

      Actually it took 410 days to complete and there were 3400+ workers on the job. The entire WTC at present has just a little over 500 workers be utilize in different areas of construction.

    Abomination. This will be a testament to the shame of a government of cowards who allow terrorists to tell us what we can build, how we can build and how American Exceptionalism is a quaint fallacy.

    By not rebuilding the towers, as they were but taller, we have sent a clear signal to the world that if you “give the bully a bloody nose” that we will cave to your demands of subservience.
