In life there are tradeoffs. Privacy for safety, freedom for security, etc. No matter what you do you will never be perfectly safe, nor totally free. Once you can accept this then you can see the insanity in many of the laws.

@rschweizer - SO???? Just because the group you listed is responsible for 90% of the terror doesn't mean a few white extremist can't get in on the act too.

There is no chance at all that the information will be available as minors as well as minorities are protected by law. If they allowed profiling and opened the sealed information to law officials crimes of this sort would plummet. Heaven forbid a troubled youths crimes be told! Might be a better lesson and would warn the neighborhood just who the troublemaker truly is!

Scarecrow57, you're right. Except drugs aims his missives at muslims, arabs, and middle-easterns 100% of the time; not 90%.

Understand? Probably not.

Political correctness has damaged us severely and will continue to do so as long as the do-gooders continue to control the media and manipulate the politicians. Get smart, America.

Since holding his first press briefing on Feb. 16, 2011, White House Press Secretary Jay Carney has provided some sort of “I don’t know the answer” response to reporters more than 1,900 times and there were at least 9,486 times where he’s evaded a question, according to a Yahoo! News analysis.

Here’s how the Yahoo! numbers look:

I don’t have the answer (1905 times) I would refer you to someone else (1383 times) You already know the answer (1125 times) I’m not going to tell you (939 times) Not that I know of (927 times) I don’t want to (588 times) I’m not sure (549 times) I won’t speculate (525 times) No comment (429 times) I’ll get back to you (387 times) It’s a good question (381 times) See yesterday’s non-response (231 times) The president won’t tell me (117 times)

Usedto, this might be helpful. Research suggests no more than 15% of the total islamic population of 1.2-1.5 billion people has the potential to be a terrorist should the opportunity arise. That equates to a min. of 180 million and a max of 225 million potential jihadists. However, actual jihadists, those who have or will commit an act of terror in allahs name suggests no more than 1 in 100 of the 180 million young fundimentalist muslim men are prepared mentally, morally and spiritually to be terrorists. That's 1.8 million actual islamic jihadists. So not ALL muslims are terrorists, just a couple million. A couple million too many terrorists with a billion other muslim enablers.

MrBoB51 you forgot the source of your citation: Fox News; which in turn got it right from no where.
