    Sorry - couldn't resist.
    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.

    I like the taste of bananas, but I don't like things that are made to taste like bananas.

    How weird is that?

    Not too weird , but possibly beneath contempt.

    When you see (or if you saw) people dressed in Muslim garb getting onto your airplane, is there any moment of uneasyness or nervousness in you?
    No. I'm more afraid of getting on an airplane and it going down because the crew is overworked and underpaid.

    It is perfectly natural to group people by appearance, and we all do it so readily. I believe this comes from several factors wherein it contributed to our ancestor's survival on the Savannah.

    So many things in our civilized society cause us to have to work at purging our instincts. Juan was honestly expressing one such tendency which I think he was pointing out needs to be restrained by our rational mind. NPR wrongly fired him for it.
    You can never be safe from a government that can keep you completely safe from each other and the world. You must choose.

    Juan Williams was released from NPR for his partisan role at Fox News, which precludes any attempt at being an objective reporter for NPR. Anyways, I'm fine with it, because what he said was stupid.

    Anyways, tldr the thread but how many conservatives were up in arms over this? How many of those cheered the sacking of Helen Thomas?
