Alex: Why don't we legalize robbing others? That wouldn't be an issue then either!

There are still people who don't want to break the law, so legalizing prostitution would encourage prostitution.

Abortions for some, miniature American flags for others.

P. T. Barnum would have chortled at this news story. "There's a sucker born every minute" definitely describes these poor schnooks!

I read yesterday that Silicon Valley police are accused of "racial profiling". This is a good example- although MV isn't exactly all white- I wanted to address this issue of so called race profiling. Number One- a dark person would be as out of place as a PA soccer mom would be in downtown Detroit. Trouble makers with an agenda are trying to keep PA/Atherton/etc police officers from doing their job, using racism- the one term NO P.A. person would want to be painted as- an excuse. They are being profiled because THEY LOOK LIKE THEY DON'T BELONG! If I myself were cruising around PA or Atherton, I would be expected to be questioned even though I myself am white, probably would not fit the demographic just based on my clothing and hair style alone. Quit falling for the phony racist card- don't buy into their weak arguments for fear of political incorrectness. It will be your undoing!
