    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?
    I voted "a little bit." It would cause me to be more observant of what they were doing. If they don't like it, then they shouldn't dress like Osama BinFreakiin' Laden on an airplane.

    A shame he was fired. I wonder, had he said something like, "On a dark street, when two Black guys with gang colors on walk by, I get nervous."

    Nor do I believe he was fired for this reason (being human)....
    I do know that the right-wing nut cases twist and spin the news - this I find to be despicable.
    Can't help commentng on your second sentence...."supposedly abused." ?
    The devil whispered in my ear, "You cannot withstand the storm." I whispered back, "I am ​the storm."

    I don't fly as often as I used to... when I did after 2001 to about 2007, yes. I seemed to always sit next to people who were nervous, hated flying, got airsick,whatever. Not every time but I'd say about 50% of the time - and don't get me wrong - I'm not complaining. I'll take sick bags over a 5 hour flight of kids screaming and kicking the back of my seat.
    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.

    There was a dude, who was on one of my flights, who had a jacket, that had a grenade on the back and wings sprouting out of it.

    Talk about innapropriate attire, I'm surprised he didn't get a cavity search wearing that thing through security.

    That or shot on site, when he came within a mile of the building.

    Ha... the PX used to have all sorts of civilian jackets with guns and grenades and other things depicted. I remember in the early 1990's wearing my "eat lead you lousy red" T-shirt showing with all sorts of inappropriate things on them. It might be inappropriate today, post 9/11, but that's just because of fear. Lots of things have changed because of fear --- ie., plastic knives getting kindergarten children expelled, but that's another thread/discussion.
