    almost all the money is being distributed to the injured.

    nothing more; just thought it needed to be stated that people are not always the pieces of shit we sometimes think they are.

    if it raises money for the injured it's worth it. many of those hurt will have to have their homes altered so they can just get through the front door now.

    I wonder if a benefit will be held at MSG for the city of Boston? :c

    Seriously though, great to see a city/country getting together to help victims. :up:

    So, the charity will disburse funds for victims' prosthetics, construction in their home, physical/emotional therapy and continued medical care?

    I'm curious to know how funds are disbursed.

    A rock concert at Fenway Park would be a better idea, IMO.

    As long as the government doesn't start giving out money to the victims I am fine with charity giving help to those who need it. I never understood how Bush could appropriate federal funds to give to the widows and families of the 9/11 victims. Since when do the tax payers have to pay for victims of terrorism?

    Since the govt has access to discretionary funds, domestic terrorism is a crime against the country, and its an extension of the principles behind social security, social welfare, and just the right fucking thing to do.

    Sometimes people have to be shown why we are better than anyplace else on the planet.

    I agree, but if you wanted to be a shit-stirrer, you could claim the government was at least partially responsible for the first-responders who got cancer and all sorts of respiratory problems after the EPA wrongfully (fraudulently or otherwise) declared the air space around ground zero as safe.

    If you wanted to be a shit-stirrer, that is.

    If this administration would protect the citizens instead of trying to figure out how to give amnesty to millions of illegal aliens, (many of them criminals) things like this might not happen. If the FBI had investigated one of those brothers as the Russian government had requested this might not have happened.

    If you'll recall, the FBI did do an investigation of the older brother and the U.S. did request additional information from the Russian government and did NOT get a reply/cooperation.

    So, we investigated him based upon their "heads-up," but didn't give us any info that led the investigation anywhere.

    This isn't minority report. In the past 12 years, there have been at least a dozen plots for terror in NYC broken up by local and federal authorities. It's sad, sure, but you can't get every one of them every time.

    Yeah, Ray Kelly said this morning on one of the news stations that there have been 16 plots since September 11th, 2001 in NYC.

    I wonder how many of them took place during our "heightened alert stages" with Bush's retarded color-coded warning system.

    I'd be afraid to have fucked the older one. It might've caused me to convert to Islam and I look terrible in a hijab!
