    Oh please, I can't beleive that you never heard of Matthew Shepard, or the Christens Kill the gays bill in Uganda. Or the recent incidents in which 4 teens killed themselves because they were bullied for being gay.

Basically, "no government exists, but through the power of the people". It's just like Russians, who thought that Stalin just wasn't aware of the famine in the Ukraine. They refused to accept that he caused the famine in the Ukraine.

    Most Germans didn't know the Holocaust was even taking place; but, they did allow Hitler to take and keep power. So, is the Holocaust the fault of the German people? Ultimately, yes.

    It boils down to two things: 1) the people are too stupid to realize what's going on, or 2) they're complicit with what's going on. There's really no in between.

    Actually, let's profile danger...if it happens that the danger of the day is a muslim terrorist than that's how it should be.

    Proud to be associated with the Nazis is an overgeneralization. You see lots of propaganda films...does not prove pride by most.

    That was a robbery gone bad. Not to mention one of them got the needle and the other got life without parole.

    Ask any qualified mental health professional and they'll tell you that suicide is a symptom of mental illness. Terminal illness isn't murder.

    Re: Airport Security: Let's Profile Muslims

    Quick question...

    How do you know someone is a Muslim at the airport security gate? Do they dress like a Muslim? well then the Muslim-terrorist just won't look like one. Do they talk with an Arabic accent? Well not all Muslims are Arab and one can be taught an American or other accent in phrases needed to get through an airport. Do we ask everyone in the US what their religion, because of domestic terrorists, as well as those entering the US? They can lie...

    How do we do it?

    There was no anti-Hitler party in Germany. Believe everything you see in the film footage.

    You are all over the board. And nothing in your response addressed my not so complicated question....

    That's because the Nazis killed them. Seriously, he was widely popular but there was a lot of resistance including coup and assassination attempts by high-ranking military and members of his own Party.

    Re: Airport Security: Let's Profile Muslims

    If, for some reason, this country decided to erase certain amendments to the Constitution and actually allow for racial/religious profiling... how would such a move be kept within the confines of an airport?

    Has anyone even stopped to consider how the act of superficial profiling would affect more than those we're "afraid of" at the moment? You could look at any crime in which a particular demographic garners a considerable majority of offenses and act accordingly. For instance:

    Assume we were to force sobriety checks on caucasian men under 18 upon recognition of them operating a motor vehicle (because, for debate purposes, they make up the vast majority of DUI arrests). Would the defense be "but millions more teen drivers are law-abiding"? That wouldn't work... because the same argument doesn't work for the billions of law-abiding muslims. Is this the method we'd like to employ on a much larger scale (with regard to law enforcement)?
