    its sad, but its going to take a LOT of americans dying (when i say a lot, i mean a minimum of 10s of thousands) before the left and left-leaning-middle wake the fork up and realize that if we play left-wing-super-nice (ie running scared from "racial" profiling etc) we are going to lose a lot of innocent people... a LOT.

    AFA terrorists building bombs mid-air... you have to wonder, if they want to blow up planes, why not just put bombs in checked-luggage. Will detectors find/stop some of them? sure, but we've allll heard about the huge lapses in security since 9-11... dont ya think a lot of those kinds of bombs would slip through?

    Excellent article. We are fools if we think we can stop terrorists from boarding planes simply by screening them, there is simply too much PC red tape and too many passengers to screen them effectively. The only way to win the war on terror is to go to the terrorists and kill and/or capture them as we are doing.

    I am a pretty belligerent and not very PC type of person sometimes. I would have probably said something offensive to them Arabs, and gotten us all killed.

    I would have said something to the effect of: /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    "Are you guys terrorist?"

    "Why do you keep hogging the Bathroom? Other people got to use it too you know!"

    "Can I have a bite of your Hamburger?"

    "I thought you guys didn't eat cows?"

    "What is that piece of string hanging from your shoe...a fuse?"

    Wow, that's cynical... Possibly true, but I'd hate to beleive that it is. Do you really beleive that or are you just being dramatic?

    The most offensive thing you can say to a lawyer is a quote from George Bernard Shaw:

    "Reasonable people never accomplish anything."

    maybe a little dramatic but extremely pissed off /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif
    we as a country are so afraid of looking bad to other countrys that the airlines cant even search more than 2 of these fukstics before boarding a plane ?
    and they knew about them before they even boarded /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gifdont you find this a little odd ?

    when will americans realize that most other countrys already hate us so maybe we need to work on liking each other before worrying about other countrys.

    The problem is we as a country can't agree on anything. we are a country that is raised by single mom's. We are a country that used to your neighbors could spank your kid, now you can't dicsiplin a child without fear of CPS coming in. We are a country full of people that love to tell others what to do but don't do it ourselves. We are a LAZY country. We are a country of people that DO NOT WANT TO TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR ANYTHING.


    "What do you mean I have to stand in line and wait to get on this plane..........WAHH WAHHHH...."

    I love this place, I just don't like a lot of the people in it.

    Yeah, airline security is a total joke! I recently flew to Reno. If you don't want to show your ID, you don't have to. I did that by accident and all they did was write "No ID" on my boarding pass. Then the dumbfucks asked why I was carrying an all metal pen.... /forums/images/graemlins/screwy.gif

    well, if the goverment allows it, then don't get on the plane. Ask the airline for a change, I'm sure they would accomodate. The problem is bigger than just actions. This country was built on FREEDOMS. This country was built on on inbound people from other countries. At some point in your history your people were the scoundrel of society...japanese, indians, italians, irish, chinese, russians, polish people..etc.

    Here is the big question, do we not rent RYDER trucks to middle aged white males going forward? You get the picture.

    The situation in the story would SCARE THE CRAP out of me,but I would exercise my rights and protect my family and ask for another flight. Period. This has nothing to do with racial profiling, racism, etc. I would not walk down a dark alley ( even though its my right to ) if there were a group of "rough" looking white, hispanic, black, asian, etc.

    I flew recently. Had a big Cadillac belt buckle on. Went off in the metal detector. I showed it to the minority security person and he let me thru. I could have very easily had a pistol or knife hidden in my pants underneath the belt buckle.

    I was so scared to [darn] when that happened that I told one of the minority supervisors and he didn't care. I really should have followed up on it more. Maybe I still will.
