    Still the belief that there is terrorism doesn't mean the accepter of that fact is terroized, I was just a few blocks away from the world trade center when terrorists attacked those buildings with airplanes and I along with many other New Yorkers continued to travel back and forth from that location in the ensuing days and even until today. So your snark that I am terrorized just because I believe that terrorism exist is quite weak.

      It was literally the truth.   You are the only one that was blocks away from something that happened on 9/11.  Everyone had different reactions.  No one said it was terror. I said you have accepted being terrorized.  Maybe you aren't. But your argument makes it seem as though it is the case.

      Me...who could see smoke from my office window blocks away, I was looking for the first plane to get on as soon as possible.  1.  To show terrorists that their insanity wasn't enough to make America any less the home of the brave.  2. It was never going to be safer when flights reopened.

      We choose to let terrorists put us in fear.  I refuse to allow them to make me ignore all logic because 19 loonies devised a way to get by the system once, or two fools in Boston decided to read the internet and decided to go crazy.

      I don't live by the anomaly.  And frankly, I wish more people would stand up and stop letting terrorists run our lives.   There is a time to be in fear.  Like say, London 1942.  Yet, they devised a motto that you are familiar with. Let's try to have the same level of confidence and bravery that the generation before us had, and not give these folks the attention they so dearly want, and change the country they so dearly wish they could.  Its folks like Gregory that choose to focus on fear for ratings that drove us into war 10 years ago and are doing their darndest to do it again.   Why not stand against them, instead of trying to find a way to make it seem like a strawman on the other side is the equivalent.

        These freakouts are destroying this nation financially and wreaking havoc on our system of laws.
