I just read Jackie Mason’s and Raoul Felder’s article “Searches Make Sense.” I have to point out that terrorists know we are looking for Arabic looking Muslim men. So one of their strategies is going to be to kidnap a white family and force the white man to carry out a terrorist attack, for if he doesn’t, the terrorists will kill his family. Now they could also do this to the family of blond-haired, blue-eyed Scandinavian transsexuals wearing snowshoes. And if the police do not consistently do random searches of everyone, this poor blond-haired, blue-eyed Scandinavian transsexuals wearing snowshoes covered in explosives will get passed them and kill everybody in order to save his family and loved ones.
Also, there will be no home grown terrorist coming out of the indigenous Muslim population here in the U.S. American Muslims are very patriotic, and know a good thing when they see it: America. We need to concern ourselves with the chronically miserable Muslim youths of Western Europe. But we can not afford to give them 100% of our attention because that little girl and he mom boarding that train, may have five kids at home being held at gun point by terrorists. Let’s be smarter than they are and not racially profile one group.
Also, I am not sure if you have gone to the movies lately, but special effects makeup has gotten pretty good. If it is possible to turn two black men into blonde teenage girls, then how hard would it be to turn light skinned Arabic men into blond-haired, blue-eyed Scandinavian transsexuals wearing snowshoes?
Also how far are we willing to go to stop people from being killed? We obviously are not going very far when it comes to safety in cars or we could put governors on all vehicles so they can’t go faster then 75 MPH. We don’t mandate wear helmets in cars which would significantly save lives. We don’t mandate compulsory swim lesson for all children in this country, though that would save many more thousands of lives each year than die in terrorist attacks. And we don’t mandate that all adult males have a healthy body mass index, but yet that would save thousands of lives, again many more than die in terrorist attacks.p>Terrorists win when we take away our own liberties, thus fundamentally distorting our free society. If as President Bush says, “they hate us because of our freedom,” then they win if they scare us into taking our own freedoms away. Just like using our planes against us, they us our own fear against us to destroy our way of life. They love it — that is their point. They want to punish us for being the most powerful country in the world. If we do like Tony Blair says, and live our lives normally, the terrorists loose. br> — Bill Tiller br> Encinitas, California br> /p>
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
