Default Work Smarter not harder.

To ensure that 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.

kidnapped and massacred by:

(a) Olga Corbutt

ages of 17 and 40

(a) Lost Norwegians

In 1983, the U.S. Marine barracks in Beirut was blown

up by:

(c) Geraldo Rivera making up for a slow news day

(d) Arab Muslim male extremists mostly between the

ages of 17 and 40.



In 1985 the cruise ship Achille Lauro was hijacked,

and a 70 year old American passenger was murdered and

thrown overboard by:

(a) The Smurfs

(b) Davy Jones

(c) The Little Mermaid

(d) Arab 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:

(a) Captain Kid

(b) Charles Lindbergh

(c) Mother Teresa

(d) Arab 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) Arab 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) Arab 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

women problems

(c) The World Wrestling Federation to promote its

next villain: "Mustapha the Merciless"

(d) Arab Muslim male extremists mostly between the

against:

I guess it's just my imagination that I don't see the towers any more when I drive up the NJ Turnpike.

Come on now Cat. Even liberals need to agree that we should be using common sense and spend some extra time searching people that look like the enemy rather than looking up my Grandmother's skirt.
