Freedom Toast, Freedom Fries
When that idiot Bob Ney, a Congressman from Ohio, insisted the Congressional cafeteria start calling French fries and French toast, "freedom fries and freedom toast," we all laughed at his stupidity.
Now the lunatic fringe in the Middle East have started calling Danish pastry, "roses of the prophet Mohammed."
Lemme see if I have this straight-
They can't handle cartoons depicting Mohammed, yet they can name pastries after him?
And speaking of idiots, after George Bush has spent the last six years trying to scare the hell out of us by claiming Arab terrorists are out to kill us- and any Arab might be a terrorist, now he wants us to be all-inclusive and let them operate our ports?
In an e-mail discussion with my political nemesis Recycled Sip Clyde, he was flabbergasted that I was in favor of racial profiling at airports and other venues. He thought I had betrayed the liberals.
I say, hell yes I'm for racial profiling at airports.
Security agents don't need to be randomly shaking down little old Hispanic ladies at airports, they need to be strip searching guys with Middle Eastern passports and names like Akbar and Mohammed.
I don't care if they live in Cincinnati and sell carpeting for Sears, I am suspicious of all Middle Eastern types because Bush has spread his paranoia so successfully.
Does that mean I am anti Islamic?
Well, the terrorist division of Islam has given them all a bad name, and I don't see any big clumps of Muslim clerics publicly denouncing suicide bombers or calling for other Islamic extremists to knock it off, so I guess I am.
It's kind of like the way I feel about Christian fundamentalist extremists. I think they give the word Christian a bad connotation, and it causes me to wonder about any self-proclaimed Christian.
I'm not an atheist, but you sure as hell don't see them banding together and flying planes into buildings or bombing embassies or KFC franchises. Nor do you hear them bitching about abortion or gay rights.
Nope. As long as Islamic extremists are blowing shit up, I say keep all of them away from running our ports, and we should watch them like hawks when they are in our country as aliens holding green cards.
And as long as Christian extremists keep trying to control our bodies and souls, they are also suspicious provocateurs who need to be watched carefully.
