1. They hate us for our freedom to occupy their lands
2. Only if the security is false and we don't reinstate our basic rights.
3. Economy is weaker, probably temporary. Constitution a little weaker but not unprecedented for war.
If an evil dictator or other similar group wanted to control and enslave America, they'd probably do things like force people to go through scanners before traveling, not let them leave the country if they owe taxes, try to take their firearms away, make them fear posting speech on social sites or have their mental health examined, spend all of their money and their children's money and run up huge debt, make them dependent on government as much as possible, be able to indefinitely detain them on suspicion without actual charge, rig votes at election conventions, and do all of this with the blessing of the majority of the population.
They'd probably cancel shows like Firefly too. Like I said, they're evil.
I would question that anyone really wanted to learn anything from 9/11 (or any other event for that matter), just reinforce their traditional knee-jerk thirst for blood of anyone not like them.
It's unclear where anybody ever got the idea that a free market results in low prices when the entire point of capitalism is to maximize profit and low prices are less profitable. Therefore the natural proclivity should be to collude and fix prices at the highest sustainable point.
Oh, it's illegal to collude and fix prices and whatnot as deemed by the gubmint? Who are they to say how a free market should work when it's a matter of divinity per Adam Smith whose book nobody bothered to read?
The words were scrawled on a note by Connecticut resident Randy Scott on the morning of Sept. 11, 2001, when the World Trade Center was attacked. Scott perished that fateful day, but the note withstood the collapse of the towers and was passed from hand to hand for nearly ten years before it finally reached his family, according to the Stamford Advocate.
Scott’s wife, Denise, learned about what her family refers to as “The Note” in August 2011. She had previously believed her husband died instantly after Flight 175 flew into the tower near the offices of Euro Brokers, where he worked. The scrap of paper has robbed the family of any illusion Randy Scott died a quick and merciful death.
"I spent 10 years hoping that Randy wasn't trapped in that building," Denise, 57, said to the newspaper from her Stamford home, with two of her three daughters, Rebecca, 29, and Alexandra, 22, at her side. "You don't want them to suffer. They're trapped in a burning building. It's just an unspeakable horror. And then you get this10 years later. It just changes everything.”
The Note not only has the final words written by Scott, it also has a trace amount of his blood, according to the Advocate. DNA testing confirmed a match and helped the New York City Medical Examiner’s office track down his family, the paper reported.
I thought I did. "What have we learned since 9/11, America?" is the question.
Is this better? What have we learned since 9/11, America? We've learned that some people have such an outright hatred of the government and police they will use any occasion to lay the blame on them, whether it is valid or not.
"The biggest problems that we're facing right now have to do with George Bush trying to bring more and more power into the executive branch and not go through Congress at all. And that's what I intend to reverse when I'm president of the United States." -- Sen. Barack Obama, March 31, 2008

3) Are the Constitution and economy stronger after this tragedy, or infinitely weaker? Neither.
