Add about another 54 floors (~54 weeks away) to the 36 already up, should be around 90th floor/1,120 feet high by 9/11/2011.

they are taking a long time; in dubai the tallest tower in the world was finished in 5 years and it is more or less the double of the freedom tower that even after 9 years doesnīt look like a big advance. There you have, how the syndicates can ruin a city or a country. Before all dose labor unions the USA had the best working people in the world, now finding something made in the USA is almost impossible, and if you donīt believe me look at GM (government Motors) almost went bankrupt all because of the labor unions and the goverment is ruining GM, Chrysler and the free market, Ford is a company that represents america a capitalist country, the light in the end of the hallway, the american dream but now is more like the Ļ Chinese dream"

I'm confused. Why did you type up that whole big thing when you could have simply said "I'm a huge retard" instead?
