    Nope, .....I really don't see a pattern here to justify profiling, do you?


    So, to ensure we Americans never offend anyone, particularly fanatics intent on killing us, airport security screeners will no longer be allowed to profile certain people. They must conduct random searches of 80-year-old women, little kids, airline pilots with proper identification, secret agents who are members of the President's security detail, 85-year old Congressmen with metal hips, and Medal of Honor winning and former Governor Joe Foss, but leave Muslim Males between the ages 17 and 40 alone lest they be guilty of profiling.


    As the writer of the award winning story "Forrest Gump" so aptly put it, "Stupid is as stupid does."

    True, but I always like to read it.......kind of wish this history lesson was on the front page of every newspaper daily as a reminder of how simple things could be if we just used some common sense.

    wow, i was gonna say the same thing. people need to be reminded so they don;t get complacent.we are a country that lets others take care of our problems. we need a punch in the face every once in awhile to see the real world.
