More Americans say 9/11 changed U.S. for worse than better, Post-ABC poll finds -- Americans increasingly say the events of Sept. 11, 2001, had a more negative than positive impact on the country, and predictions for the pandemic's long-term impact are even more downbeat, according to a Washington Post-ABC News poll.

Take a look what it did to the Middle East, to the elections in 2004, to science, climate, change, religion....

It didn't just damage America it damaged the world.

It empowered two of the worst US presidents ever, George W. and Donald. Each were destructive of this country in their own peculiar ways.

The worst part of 9/11 was the conservative REACTION to it. USING it to motivate americans to support a war they were planning to start anyway.

I kind of feel like this is a no-brainer. Of course 9-11 changed America for the worse. In what possible alternate universe could an American not think that?

I just flew for the first time since the pandemic hit.

Taking off shoes, serious and leery TSA agents, the full body scanning machines, pat downs, etc are all constant reminders that 9/11 changed us forever. Flying used to be fun. Not after 9/11 it isn't.

And I had to leave that tasty 16 oz freshly made maple syrup because the limit for carry-on is 3.4 oz.

911 forever empowered the American MIC class in the name of security. It militarized and politicized things that were not formerly militarized and politicized.

In short, with one spectacular event, Bin Laden managed to forever weaponize our own weaknesses against us.

Man, if you ever visited Fox and saw their comment section, one would think you stole this sentence directly from there and just changed the names. It's funny watching kids with no wisdom or frame of reference trying to get their voice heard.

Ahhhh...the ol' "Since things didn't go perfect I'm going to rewrite history" defense. Democrat politicians (just like Republicans) used a lot more intelligence than a big pad of white paper presented to America to make their decisions. And many of them mentioned, on record, their support based on all evidence, not just what W used to publicly provide to the government.

But, I get it, if Liberals have shown us one thing in the last 10 years, it is that they are incapable of having their pride and ego hurt without fabricating lies to make it seem like they are actually right.

MORAL HAZARD.

It's what happens when a whole country participates in a lie....because the actual truth exposes the other 'truths' to be lies.
