Airport Security

There comes a time in a nations history that someone has to decide what is best for the country. We are definitely at that crossroad today. Someone in TSA has decided that it is in the best interest of national security to strip search anyone choosing a plane as their mode of transportation.

One of the problems with America is that we have let political correctness go to far. We seem to be willing to allow foreigners to change our culture and traditions because it offends their religious and cultural beliefs. Remember how we used to be able to say Merry Christmas, now it has to be Happy Holidays?

I can see how racial profiling normally is not a good thing and not something we would want to make a habit of in a country that is considered a melting pot of cultures and people from around the world.

But when it is a choice between losing civil liberties, constitutional rights and rights afforded to citizens of America through the Bill of Rights and profiling the most likely terrorist suspect wanting to board a plane to blow it up, I think we need to consider an exception.

Of all the terrorist acts that have been committed in the world, how many have been committed by Americans? And of those, how many were suicide missions?

Americans don't buy the 72 virgin thing and they certainly will not blow themselves up to commit an act of terrorism. They might blow something up, but it won't be themselves.

So why do we subject millions of Americans to violations of their rights, including 80 year women and young children when the answer really is to set aside political correctness.
