    and it makes you wonder who the real enemy is in the eyes of the current administration.....seems to me they have it ass-backwards. They are more worried about the rights of extremists that freaking HATE the US as opposed to the people that love this country more than most.

    I am going to get a bald spot from all the head scratching I have been doing and will be doing for sure over the next 3+ years
    Those out of countties extemists dont vote.

    While I have old glory flying at the house, sing along with the national anthem at ball games, have parade float celebrating Independence Day( thats July, 4th for those on the left) and all the other things I do to love and support my country I am baffled that I may be on a terror watch list.

    According to the current folks, it is anyone that doesn't agree with them. Just checkout Janet Napolitano's list ie. returning servicemen and others!

    And, you have to wonder which side the President Of the United States is on. I sure do as he has not demonstated anything that would indicate that he is serious about our security. If we are not attached domestically, could it be because Islamic terrorist support and like him? Do they view him as a foothold on the USA in their quest for world domination?
    It's such a shame that in the USA, defending Liberty has become such a heroic deed.

    Isn't that what I just said? Profiling has been going on for a long time. A black man in a white nieghborhood, any van with NC plates going up I-95 towards NY (cigarettes), any car with CA, FL, or IL plates going trough NM (drugs), a young hispanic driving a Camry (must be stolen). When I was a teenager in NV the cops would shake you down 'jess cause'.

    You're just twitchin' now cause it's your Ox getting gored this time.

    Don't blame the actions of every peckerhead cop on Washington.

    I don't believe profile stops of vehicles is right. No matter what the profile parameters may be. We've chosen to give this power to law enforcement.
    We have no one to blame but ourselves if it is misdirected.

    Furthermore I doubt the veracity of a story where the only source is an un-named 'relative'.
    If they had stopped a black guy because he looked like a drug dealer or a Hispanic in a van for suspected illegal smuggling you would be raising holy hell.


    Your hypocrisy is showing.

    Your lack of reading comprehension is showing.

    I don't see a problem with pulling this guy over for that bumper sticker!

    He is clearly a "Right Wing Radical!!"

    Not any signs of him being a terrorist, illegal alien, drug user, DUI or any of the things we hold near and dear.

    But the line has to be drawn somewhere!!

    The original post reads like a poor grade of urban legend. A relative said, "Blah Blah............."

    Seems to me 200+ yrs ago, the sticker was in the form of a flag that represented the colonies. The cop was out of line and the govt that approves such Gestapo tactics is something to be afraid of.
