     No, 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 winner and former Governor Joe Foss, but leave Muslim Males between the ages 17 and 40 alone lest they be guilty of profiling.

Great post. Our liberal associates do not seem to understand that one does not go fishing in the middle of a desert, as there are no fish there. Similarly, when one is looking for terrorists, one must look for those who have committed acts of terrorism. 80 year old little old ladies have not committed acts of terrorism, therefore searching them is a waste of time and resources. Only a society gone insane would think differently. That is, however, exactly the insanity that I would expect from a liberal.

Even if all of those things happened, which is true, why should it stick to the entire Muslim population in the USA?

Here are some other things to think about:

KKK, the oldest terrorist organization in the USA, killing people who aren't White and Protestant, burning churches, hanging people from trees, even bombing buildings. There were even police officers in the KKK who murders people. Go look up Michael Schwerner, Andrew Goodman, and James Chaney. The culprits, mainly all White males.

The unabomber, Ted Kaczynski, a White male, bombing people for two decades before they caught him. He also targeted airlines.

Tim McVeigh bombed the Murrah Federal Building in OKC,OK, killing alot of people, even children in a daycare center. White male.

Cho, who shot up Virginia Tech. He was a Korean male.

A plot to kill current President Barack Obama. Both were young White males.

BTK killer, killing people in Wichita,Kansas for years before being caught(Dennis Rader) was a White male.

Eric Rudolph set off four bombs in during the 1996 Summer Olympics in Atlanta,GA at Centennial Olympic Park. He also blew up a lesbian bar in Atlanta and some family planning clinics(some provided abortion, some may have not). I don't condone abortion, but he was still a terrorist. He was also a White male, born in the USA, and he even served in the army.

Who killed JFK? Either Harvey Lee Oswald or Jack Ruby. Both White males born in the USA. One of them subscribed to Soviet communism.

Who tried to kill Ronald Reagan? John Hinckley Jr., a White male who was about 25 or 26 years old at the time.

Gary Ridgeway, White male, was the Green River killer, basically murdering nearly 50 people by himself.

Jeffrey Dahmer, also White male, was a serial murderer in Milwaukee,WI, not to mention practicing cannibalism.

The teenagers who shot up Columbine High School, Thurston High School, and Santana High School, all were White males.

The Penske Truck Rental shooting in Kennesaw,GA, perpetrated by a 60 year-old White male, Jessie James Warren. This happened last Tuesday. Go look it up.

July 1999, there was a shooting perpetrated by a White male, Mark Barton, who was a daytrader. He murdered 12 people, even members of his own family. His reason: losing 105,000 dollars. Place, metropolitan Atlanta.

If it doesn't stick to White people when acts of terrorism or serial murder occurs, why should it stick to anyone else? I say don't profile anyone. If you have to profile one ethnicity, then you have to profile everyone. Sink or swin together.
