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

So, to ensure we North 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 of the President's security detail. But leave Muslim males between the ages 17 and 40 alone because profiling is discriminatory and not nice.

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

In closing, I hope this taught everyone a lesson. I'm kidding of course, although there's nothing funny in this article. Just a lot of gross stupidity on the part of our Justice Department or whatever Band of Merry Nitwits is responsible.

I guess we should be looking for a one-legged Mexican with blond hair and a Swedish accent? You are so right. Stupid is as stupid does. Everyone is so busy kissing special interests arses, common sense has been buried deeply in the past. For my part, I am looking for an Arab between the ages of 10 and 60. Those seem to be the ones signing up for stupid is as stupid bombs. "Peacefully" of course.
