Profiling

To insure we Americans never offend anyone, particularly fanatics intent
on
killing us, airport screeners will not be allowed to profile people. They
will continue random
searches of 80-year-old women, little kids, airline
pilots with proper identification, Secret Service agents
who are members of the President's security detail,
85-year old Congressmen with metal hips and Medal
of Honor winning former Governors.

Let's pause a moment and take the following test.

In 1985 the cruise ship Achille Lauro was hijacked and
a 70 year old American passenger was murdered in his wheelchair and
thrown
overboard by:
a. The Smurfs
b. Davy Jones
c. The Little Mermaid
d. Muslim male extremists mostly between the ages of 17 and 40.

In 1985 TWA flight 847 was hijacked at Athens, and a U.S. Navy diver was
murdered by:

d. Muslim male extremists mostly between the ages of 17 and 40

In 1988, Pan Am Flight 103 was bombed by:
a. Scooby Doo
b. The Tooth Fairy
c. Butch Cassidy and The Sundance Kid who had a few sticks of dynamite
left
over from the train job.
d. Muslim male extremists mostly between the ages of 17 and 40

In 1993 the World Trade Center was bombed the first time by:
a. Richard Simmons
b. Grandma Moses
c. Michael Jordan
d. Muslim male extremists mostly between the ages of 17 and 40

In 1998, the U.S. embassies in Kenya and Tanzania were bombed by:
a. Mr. Rogers
b. Hillary, to distract attention from Wild Bill's women problems
c. The World Wrestling Federation to promote its next villain:
"Mustapha
the Merciless"
d. Muslim male extremists mostly between the ages of 17 and 40

On 9/11/01, four airliners were hijacked and destroyed and thousands of
people were murdered by :
a. Bugs Bunny, Wiley E. Coyote, Daffy Duck and Elmer Fudd

In 2002 reporter Daniel Pearl was kidnapped and murdered by:

b. Captain Kangaroo
c. Billy Graham
d. Muslim male extremists mostly between the ages of 17 and 40

Nope, no patterns anywhere to justify profiling!




HDTony.... Damn glad to meet you!

Government's view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it.

Yeah, Kind of like... your opponent has no rules, but Marquis of Queensbury is strictly enforced for you (and your people are insisting that this be the case).

It's not fair that a group of people are singled out, but the fact of the matter is that the US is at war with muslim extremist groups.

Therfore a minority of American should be singled out and given special attention so that ALL americans can got abotu their lives in a safe environment.

I don't think it's any less fair to randomly search everyone than it is to single out a specific group.

This is a situation where we need ot open our minds a littel further and see the big picture. This needs to be treated like any other problem.

If I had defective parts and they were made on 4 machines. If machien 4 was creating 90% of my rejects... guess which machine I would focus my attention on.

It's a waste of time, money and resources not ot focus more on Person wiht the appearance of middle eastern descent.
