    Of course, but just because race is a means of profiling doesn't make it the only - which is why I HATE when those who oppose to the scanners etc are accused of supporting just racially profiling - believe it or not, there are many more factors than JUST racially profiling that can be done, and IMO it makes more sense to profile on a VARIETY of factors than one alone since it means less you'd possibly miss... if that makes sense.
    Nationalism in high dosages may be hazardous to your health. Please consult a psychiatrist before beginning a regular regimen, and if feelings of elitism and douchbaggery continue, discontinue immediately before you become unable to do so on your own.

    And what other factors would you profile? I'd say that a 27 year old Chem major from SA would be a flag, No?

    It shouldnt be a shock to you really, in my experience with those who hold that view its not that they dont like the government jack boot, they just want people that they dont like to feel the government jack boot.

    To paraphrase something I heard from a self-proclaimed fascist

    "People want small government in their lives but want big government in their neighbors lives"
    Jackboots always come in matched pairs, a left boot and a right boot.

    Wow, that's kind of unfair generalization there Chevy. It's not that I want people I don't like to be hassled, but rather that we be smart about who we are scrutinizing. After all 9/11 wasn't carried out by Grandma, or her 7 year old grandchild.

    You notice how I left out right wingers from my question, and didn't call them names? That's because they are Americans who love this country, just as the "Libbos" you accuse of hating America also really love this country.

    I am sick to death of all the bullcrap name calling. We are ALL Americans here, unless this is Russia. Is this Russia? No, this isn't Russia. So why such anti-American accusations? The answer has to do with morality, honesty, and ethics, or rather the lack thereof of all three of those qualities.

    This has to be one of the single most braindead retarded comments I have ever read at DP in my 3+ years here. Seriously, basic boolean logic can be used to prove your premises and conclusions absurdly false. I'll even do the goddammed truth tables if you want [and I'd even take great pleasure in making you wind up with egg all over your face].
    Don't shoot the messenger ma'am... I've only stated facts! Muslims want to kill all non Muslims. You can look it up and see for your self.

    Ok ya gotta stop generalizing like this, and while there are definately some muslims who want to kill massive amounts of people because of their twisted views, it's not all of them. There are distinctions here... so compartmentalize them:

    There are muslims
    There are muslim sympathizers who do nothing wrong but feel sympathy
    There are muslim sympathizers who help organizations and individuals who are terrorists indirectly
    There are muslim sympathizers who help, fund and arm organizations and individuals directly
    There are muslim terrorists who want/hope/ or will plan to carry out the acts of violence themselves

    There are also non-mulsims who do all these things as well. It's inherently reckless and obtuse to include an absolute in an entire religion - you are making yourself more like terrorists, who believe in absolutes like "all westerners are satan and must be killed". Gimme a break already...
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    No, not the Christians or the jews. Christians and Jews have never hurt anyone that didn't have it coming to them... unlike muslims.
