Donald Trump - YOU'RE HIRED!!

Donald Trump is not one of my favorite people, but who cares. That guy is good at what he does. He has made more money going bankrupt that I can even imagine.

We do agree on one thing 100% though, the proposed "Freedom Tower and Monument to Dhimmitude" that they plan to replace the World Trade Center is just the wrong plan, at the wrong time, for all the wrong reasons.

Donald Trump has the pull, stature, reputation, and ability
to say what millions of us everyday shmuck have been saying to each other for the last couple of years,

Your plans for the World Trade Center Site are not worthy, ugly, late, uninspired, and not worthy of this Nation or New York City. (my words)
Here is The Donald. He has a better way of putting it.

"It's a building that's essentially a skeleton," he said.

Trump said the plan "looks like a junkyard."

"You take a look at a the roofs of those buildings, they're all at different angles, different shapes," he said. "It is the worst pile of crap architecture I have ever seen in my life."

How can you disagree with the man. Look at the thing.

Donald has the right idea. You need to send a message when you rebuild on the WTC site. Donald doesn't just whine from the grandstands, he offers solutions.

Trump's alternative would be replicas of the original 110-story towers, only a bit taller. The design and model by architect Ken Gardner, embraced by Trump, offered buildings that would be 1,474 feet -- more than a hundred feet taller than the original towers, once the world's tallest buildings.

"What we need is support to build a bigger and better version of two buildings and more that were taken down by people that were animals," Trump said. "If something happened to the Statue of Liberty, you wouldn't rebuild it as something other than the Statue of Liberty."

From my last trip to NYC (I need to finish that mission report), my oldest and I went by the WTC site. It is an open sore. It has been almost four years. We could have defeated Nazi Germany and Imperial Japan by now and we still have this?

Something needs to be done soon-and done right. Like I have said, I'm not a big Trump fan, but when he is right-he's right. We are a better country than this.
