Arrow OT: To ensure we Americans never offend anyone........

........particularly fanatics intent on killing us (and liberals) - 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 and 85-year old Congressmen with metal hips. Let's pause a moment and take the following test.

In 1972, at the Summer Olympics in Munich, Israeli athletes were
taken hostage and killed by:
(a) Scottish Highlanders
(b) Sonny and Cher
(c) The Viet Cong
(d) Muslim males mostly between the ages of 17 and 40

In 1979, the U.S. embassy in Iran was taken over by:
(a) Norwegians from Ballard;
(b) Elvis;
(c) A tour bus full of 80-year-old women; or
(d) Muslim male extremists mostly between the ages of 17 and 40.

In 1983, the U.S. Marine barracks in Beirut was blown up by:
(a) A pizza delivery boy;
(b) Crazed feminists complaining that being able to throw a grenade
beyond its own burst radius was an unfair and sexist requirement in
basic training;
(c) Gerardo Rivera making up for a slow news day; or
(d) Muslim male extremists mostly between the ages of 17 and 40.

In 1988, Pan Am Flight 103 was bombed by:
(a) Luca Brazzi, for not being given a part in "Godfather 2;"
(b) The Tooth Fairy;
(c) Butch and Sundance who had a few sticks of dynamite left over from the train mission, or,
(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;" or
(d) Muslim male extremists mostly between the ages of 17 and 40.

On October 12 of 2000, the USS Cole was blown up by a small boat
carrying explosives by:
(a) 2 US Postal Workers who were disgusted with the mail service on US warships;
(b) 2 Fed Ex employees trying to deliver a fresh load of ammunition;
(c) 2 UPS workers who were tired of wearing their brown uniforms
while sweating it out driving their big brown trucks and decided
to make a statement about "how hot it could get";
(d) 2 Muslim male extremists mostly between the ages of 17 and 40

On 9/11/01, four airliners were hijacked and
thousands of innocent lives destroyed by:
(a) Bugs Bunny, Wiley E. Coyote, Daffy Duck, and Elmer Fudd.
(b) The Supreme Court of Florida trying to outdo the liberals' fantasy
about their attempted hijacking of the 2000 Presidential election;
(c) Mr. Bean,
(d) Muslim male extremists mostly between the ages of 17 and 40.

Hmmm ............. nope, no patterns anywhere.

To top it off, if we search Muslim Males between 17 and 40 it will be considerd racial profiling and that's BAAAADDDD! Profile them all you want my friends. If it saves a life it was all worth it! I lost to life long friends and schoolmates on 9-11 and hundreds of fellow firefighters!

Well said. Bottom line, if you have nothing to hide, then it shouldn't be a problem to be searched, profiled, what ever they want to call it. If that's what is required to make the USA a safe place to live, so be it!

That would call for Racial profiling, and we can't have any of that going on around here because we are politically correct.

I like to call it, working smarter not harder.

I would hope that they take a little harder look at the proven target group than the old ladies and babies.

You can thank the liberals and the groups like the ACLU for this BS. I laugh when they talk about "racial profiling" in law enforcement. Profiling is not only about race, but also several other factors associated with it. White people are profiled just as other racial groups are depending on behavior and several other things, but all you her about is people are being stopped because of race. The liberals don't have a clue, and profiling is the only way to catch potential terrorist and criminals.

You are what you are. You fit where you fit. If your twin robs a bank of course someone will turn you in as a suspect! Check'em all until they change race, color, age, sex, or otherwise. Then change the profile to fit. This is a free country and at any time you dont like how we go about finding the bad guys you can exersize your free right........LEAVE!
