    To ensure we Americans never offend anyone - - - - particularly
    fanatics intent on killing us - airport screeners will not be allowed
    to profile people. They will continue random searches of 80-year-old
    women, little kids, airline pilots with proper identification, Secret
    Service agents who are members of the President's security detail,
    85-year old Congressmen with metal hips, and Medal Of Honor winning

    -----------------------------------------------
    So, is there a site for Alternet?

    "..."many of those who want to rush this country into (or out of) (anything)
    ... don't know anything about (anything)."

    Eventually, they are forced to run for some office.
    Or apply for food stamps. The last time I saw a food stamp, it was
    from a dark gentleman in the checkout line, ahead of me.
    I noticed that he was driving very nice cadilac.

    Am I profiling?
    In order to avoid profiling, will future police alerts for wanteds
    be, like, "Be on the alert for a person (or persons) matching
    this description! "Person or Persons"

    "If you see this person, please call ---. Be sure not to use "profiling
    descriptors".

    Police disclaimer:
    Prohibited Profiling Descriptors may include but are not limited to,
    Name, Sex, Age, Race, National origin, Clothing types, Hair color,
    Eye color, Height, Size, Weight, Distinctive bodily marks
    or tattoos or any other attributes which may be used to 'profile'
    or otherwise identify the person.
    Finger prints are also excluded, as this factor, like sexual preferences,
    race, and gender, are genetic and not the fault of any perpetrator.

    Profiling is crime and may not be used to classify or discriminate against
    any potential criminal suspect, based on any of the following:
    Name, Sex, Race, Age, National origin, Clothing types, Hair color,
    Height, Size, Weight, Distinctive bodily marks or tattoos or any
    other attributes which may be used to 'profile'
    or otherwise identify the person.

    The use of the term "Person" does not imply guilt, but may be used to
    indicate the existence of a suspect. The use of the term "Suspect" does not
    imply that any sought "Person" may connected to or implicated in any crime.
    The implication that any "Person" is sought, for any reason, may be
    construed as profiling, a prohibited act. Only after conviction
    in a court of law may any person be so profiled.

    Further, any association with any political, religious or gang groups
    may not be listed, as rights to free association exist and may not be used
    for purposes of profiling.

    Persons otherwise described, may be subject to arrest and or investigation.
    -------------------------------------
    We now must await an ACLU ruling on a class action suit brought by
    PERSONS v USA. Wherein the the claim is made that classification
    as 'person' constitutes profiling.

    In a related action, the ACLU is charging the U.S. Supreme Court with
    pandering to Adherents of the U.S. Constitution and other 'flag wavers'.
    'Flag waving' is alleged to be an excessive display of 'patriotism, which is
    further
    alleged to be in contravention of world wide prevalent sentiment.

    The U.S. S.C. is expected to make a plea offer to the ACLU world court,
    in order to keep their stipends. BigMedia, an arm of the ACLU, is expected to
    try the case outside of the legal system.

    Nadine Strossen, President of the ACLU, Professor of Law at
    New York Law School, has written, lectured and practiced extensively
    in the areas of civil liberties and international human rights.
    Awards include: the "Women of Distinction" award from the
    Women's League for Conservative Judaism, The Media Institute's
    Freedom of Speech Award, and the Free Speech Coalition's
    "Freedom Isn't Free Award." Strossen is a member of the
    Council on Foreign Relations (CFR).

    Continuing the fantasy, The USA will thrive and grow.
