I became a firefighter in NJ in 2003. That’s because I always thought about being one, and I was unsure of my future in general until September 11, 2001.
I began taking the necessary classes to put myself in the position to become the FF/EMT-B I became at the age of 25. 7 years later I’ve never been happier, I am married with a 2 year old and one on the way.
I consider myself conservative, no matter how negative the connotation.
1. Who owns the land, if it’s publicly owned land, should the government not have a say on whether it would be a great thing for lower Manhattan to have such a facility?
THE MAIN QUESTION
2. Does the organization that is building this facility openly denounce Islamic terror, more specifically Al Qaeda, Hezbollah, and Hamas.
Particularly groups declared terrrorist organizations that either claimed responsibility for, or gave their heartfelt thanks and admiration for the perpetrators of the heinous act of war committed so close to its doors.
I really don’t think this prerequisite is unfair and I particularly would like to see it in writing on the front door of the building.
And I love the gay bar next door thing, would never happen, but man that would make one hell of a block; a gay bar, an Islamic community center, and a large gaping hole of a mass grave? Would the duck boat tours swing down that street?
