    NEW YORK — The Freedom Tower is out. One World Trade Center is in.

    The agency that owns ground zero confirmed Thursday that the signature skyscraper replacing the towers destroyed on Sept. 11 will be more commonly known as One World Trade Center.

    The building under construction at the site was named the Freedom Tower in the first ground zero master plan. Officials at the time said the tallest, most symbolic of five planned towers at the site would demonstrate the country's triumph over terrorism.

    Port Authority of New York and New Jersey chairman Anthony Coscia says the agency refers to the building as One World Trade Center. He says it's the building's legal name and "the one that's easiest for people to identify with."

    China is going to be the first tenant. I wonder if this fact influenced the decision to change the name.

    We shouldn't be building a giant skyscraper. We SHOULD be building a forum in that area, a place of free speech and free thought where people can come and speak to a national audience 24/7 ....

    wanna stick it to the terrorists? Make the place a beacon of free thought, not a symbol of our wealth.


    we are so stupid.

    No matter what they build there it will always be the same, where the world trade center used to be.. other than that it is much ado about nothing.. it will always be hallowed ground, no matter what they build there or what they call it...

    Who gives a sh!t, 50 years from now America will be broken up into three or four third world country's anyway, the first thing the socialist governments will do is destroy the constitution and kill all the liberals.

    The 4th Of July, Xmas and Mom's Apple Pie Are All On The Way Out..........

    NOTHING IS FOREVER

    GOD DAMN AMERICA (words spoken by an American Presidents preacher) the people elected him anyway.

    Remember I warned the whole country, socialists HATE America.

    It is a known fact that Muslims all over the world danced with joy when the Towers came down but so did many Far Left Wing Anti American Blame America bastards right here in our own country, these filthy smelly swine were telling us not to sing God Bless America, they were telling us not to put little Flags on our cars the scumsucking pigs were telling us this before the dust even settled in NYC, they said “to much patriotism offends Arabs”

    All Is F---ing Lost

    Aunt Zucchini will be given a free drivers license next week.

    Do Socialist Dictatorships have Illegal Aliens, does anybody ever sneak into North Korea---------

    I can dig it. Although, in New York City, it would probably be a beacon of liberal thought more than anything. :cool:

    Yeah there is. The fact that I got laid off and can't afford a plane ticket to New York to speak out at a public forum, lol.

    I guess they didn't get the memo at the Port Authority. It's no longer called terrorism. It's called "man-created disasters". Sheesh.

    Man-made local warming. Jees if yer gonna spout this stuff at least be funny!

    (PS, you may now also abbreviate it MMLW.)

    It's probably best to ignore Harry as you guys did, but it's worth saying:

    STFU Harry. You're drunk, as usual, but this time you're just over the line.

    Pant Suit Hillary once said way back when Blue Dress was President that she wanted to have the name of the Sewer Covers changed from "Man Hole Covers" to "Person Hole Covers" that's how batty those politically correct a$s holes are.
