Why We Don’t Profile (Is Beyond Me)

To ensure we Americans never offend anyone — particularly fanatics intent on killing us — law enforcement and security screeners are not allowed to “profile” people in public places or security checkpoints. However, they will continue to perform random searches of 80-year-old women, little kids, airline pilots with proper identification, Secret Service agents who are members of the President’s security detail, 85-year-old congressmen with metal hips and even Medal of Honor recipients. But targeting Middle Eastern male Islamists between the ages 17 and 40 constitutes “ethnic profiling.”

    Profile? Who us? That would make too much sense. Sometimes we are our own worst enemies. More proof that you can’t fight a war with feelings.

    It has been said from the very beginning, America will fall from within. (Terrorism, drugs, violence, etc.) Too bad the bleeding hearts can’t learn from history. Oh well. God said the end times were going to get worse!Keep your eye on the Middle East. It’s already happening.
