"Freedom Tower", sounds and looks like a nice target.

What has this tower got to do with Freedom?

Looks ok in my book.

it looks nice, I guess. the twin towers looked better though.

calling it the freedom tower is kind of stupid...it should somehow commemorate the victims, but "freedom tower" is kind of...I dunno...

I was talking to my dad about this, he somewhat jokingly said we should put a muslim daycare on the top 2 floors. (not that that would stop some of those bastards)

ha ha.

I wonder if your dad actually knows any real live Muslims. Newsflash...they're people too and they're not all terrorists. Last time I checked my boyfriend wasn't a bastard or a terrorist.

woah, hold on...it was a stupid thing to say, it was said very very sarcastically though. he's not (and i'm not) in any way the type to villify muslims. at all. seriously. im sorry if i offended anyone, i probably should not have posted that.

and yes we know plenty of "real live Muslims" and are friends with them too...

and when i said bastard i was referring to the terrorists, and yes i do believe they are...

Well, that's good to hear. It is hard to gauge intent via the internet. I don't mean to be snippy but I get really weary by the amount of stereotyping that goes on as regards Muslims...especially since most of my friends, coworkers, etc. happen to be Muslim. Anyways, no offense to your dad, but there are plenty of other people who would make that sort of statement without any hint of sarcasm or irony, and this trend in America makes me sad and scared for the future.

And you're willing to admit that in public?

I can't believe that anyone would find such a comment to be funny.

i know...i realised after i posted that, sarcasm doesnt translate well over the internet. he was sort of making fun of the people who would say that, if that makes sense...

sorry

why must we name everything "Freedom"?

if you use a word too much, it looses all meaning.
