About Me

My photo
A Catholic who follows Rome & the Magisterium. I'm against gay "marriage", abortion, embryonic stem cell research, euthanasia, human cloning. Altar girls, Communion in the hand, Eucharistic Ministers and "Protestant" music in the Church doesn't bother me at all. A proud American retired submarine sailor. Our borders should be secured with a 10 ft. high fence topped by concertina wire with minefields out to 20 yards on both sides and an additional 10 yards filled with warning signs outside of that Let's get energy independent NOW! Back Israel to the max, stop appeasing followers of the Pedophile Prophet. Pro 2nd Amendment, pro death penalty, Repeal all hate crime legislation. Back the police unless you'd rather call a hippie when everything hits the fan. Get government out of dealing with education, childhood obesity and the enviornment. Stop using the military for sociological experiments and if we're in a war don't micromanage their every move. Kill your television, limit time on the computer and pick up a book. God's will be done and may He have mercy upon us all.

This is beyond senseless...

I found the above photo on Drudge, there have been others like it. The other day I sighted one where a nun is being wanded by a TSA agent wearing a hajib. That one always looked just a tad phony (it's been around for years) so I always pass on it.

But this one is undoubtedly the real McCoy.

C'mon, just what is the justification of the extensive search of the old guy? Don't tell me it's a way to apply equal treatment to all because there is absolutely no reason to apply equal treatment to all. When was the last time a terrorist act was attempted by a guy like this? Really.

Am I saying we should "profile"? You bet your sweet ass I am! Put the heat on those ethnic/religious groups that provide the overwhelming vast majority of terrorists in this world. Is that racist? Is that Islamophobic? Is it sexist?

You know, I just don't give a rat's patoot. One thing I know it is, plain COMMON SENSE!!

VSO, thanks. Now if only those fools in Foggy Bottom would wake up.

Equal treatment for all is just an attempt by those who want our nation to fail to make us let everybody do what ever.

Profileing, selective checks, singling out, all these things work.

IR, we should follow the example of the Israelis. Those folk just don't give a rat's ass about being PC and risking a downed jetliner.

There's a difference between "racial profiling" and security profiling. "Racial profiling"--which probably doesn't even exist given the severity of the legal charges levied against cops who do it--is "driving while black/brown/etc." Stopping someone just because of the color of their skin or that they have that skin color and are, say, in an expensive car. I think it's fair to say we all agree this is wrong.

Security profiling, however, is not about stopping any and all Muslims for no reason other than that they "look Muslim." It's about engaging some much-missed common sense. A series of markers are assessed that then reveal a REASON to look more closely at that person. For instance, cash tickets, last minute tickets, one-way tickets, last minute one-way tickets bought with cash, known terrorist ties, known reports by the suspect's father that he is in fact a freaking terrorist . . . little things like that. Instead of these being flags, though, they are ignored, purposely. This idiocy is exactly what allowed the Fort Hood terrorist to get away with his terrorist act--no one wanted to appear to be racist or anti-Islam or whatever the hell. Bullshit. That PC stuff gets people killed. We have proof of it.

It doesn't take a genius to figure out that no Christian is going to blow up a plane (when has that EVER happened?), and it doesn't take a genius to figure out that little boys and girls, grandmas and grandpas, cancer patients, et al. are NOT terrorists. This desire to treat everyone like a terrorist is absolutely unacceptable. Especially when we go out of our way to treat people who might actually BE terrorists as if they are somehow above the law/suspicion. It's total BS.

I'm ALL for profiling; it's the only thing that works. Stopping every tenth person or randomly pulling people out of the line for no clear reason is absurd. And dangerous.
