New York City Terror Attack

Wow - I'm in disbelief (but not really) that with all you political posters out there, of which I am a VERY occasional one, that I am the one to start this thread. But I guess it takes a New Yorker.

The project my daughter is working on in lower Manhattan is exactly where this attack took place. Had she been on site yesterday, she would have been in the midst of it.

I can't begin to tell you my feelings on all this, because I could rant and shout for LONG time. I'll just say this one thing:

"Diversity Visa"???? WHAT THE.........expletive. We are the most diverse country in the world, where the HELL did this come from?

Shit's gotta stop.

There is no such program anymore. It would be good not to believe what our lying POTUS has to say, especially when he goes political after such a tragedy. Blame Schumer? What a POS shit our leader is. Did I call him a leader?

You sure about that? Looks like the program is still active according to their web site.

Terrible tragedy, my brother was there 6 hours earlier with his fiance. Expect all the pedestrian ways and bike paths that don't already have the big cement pillars preventing vehicles from entering them to get them soon.

I was wrong. Flake and Schumer proposed to eliminate it through the gang of eight. Still takes a POS to blame Schumer.

I do not know if there is such a program anymore. It seems this terrorist WAS admitted under the diversity act.

And if you don't think this attack was political, you're really living in a fantasy land.

Wake up.

Those horrifically butt ugly Citi Bike stands have already ruined the beauty of many of the public areas. I will take the cement pillars and safety any day.

I take the subway. I think that makes me green. I don't have a huge issue with the bikes but good God, who on earth thought that nasty pale blue was a good color choice. They take up a lot of space. Subway and walking is better.
