AND you are is what is wrong with this country today.
I'm sorry you're such a miserable soul. Thankfully you're
opinion is worth as much as mine. Last I'll comment to you
as you aren't worth my time.... I meet up with enough jackasses
in RL, don't need them here too. Good riddance.
I've got to side with the lady.
If my wife and kids were on the same plane and were as
afraid as she was i would damn well would expect her to speak up.
If 19 WASPS had been responsible for 911 then i am sure the whole
damn world would be very cautiuos and afraid of White Anglo'.s
If 19 people of any race had committed that crime, the whole world
justified in being extremely cautious of that particular group.
I must admit it crosses my mind, even now when i board a plane.
with muslims on it.
I am not a racist ,so legend don't get your panties in a wad.
But i am a WASP.
BTW,. gw is my hero. I think he is a big bold proud man.
if anybody attacks me, don't attack me as a racist.
