However, I think the problem is deeper and more in line with being politicaly correct. Who is starting all the **** going on right now? and who's ass are we kissing to not offend anyone, So to cover that we all have to pay....IE no GATORAID on planes
GATORADE IS NOT THE PROBLEM
>Toiletries don't commit acts of terrorism.
>So why can't I take my toothpaste on the plane? How is it that Gatorade is
>forbidden? Why can't I have a bottle of water?
>Because we aren't really fighting a war with terror, we are losing a

>outsiders, it is the cowardice of Americans.
>The cowardice that won't let us call a spade a spade, that makes us all
>live in an alternate reality, that puts survival secondary to servility. We
>are fighting World War III with one arm tied behind our back.
>Last week was a good example.
>A group of two or three dozen fascist Muslims in England and Pakistan
>plotted to blow up 10 or 12 passenger-laden airliners in transatlantic
>flight. The purpose was to celebrate and reprise the at tacks of September
>11. The means was the detonation of explosive liquids disguised as common
>liquids – like Gatorade or shampoo.
>The plot was discovered, followed and – hopefully – foiled by British
>intelligence with an assist from Americans and Pakistanis. Immediately,
>new restrictions were put on airline passengers. Because the plotters
>planned to use liquids, passengers were forbidden to bring liquids onto
>Not medicines, not creams, not drinks, not nothing. Untold hundreds of
>thousands of airline passengers immediately and indefinitely lost the right
>to carry liquids or pastes on themselves or in their carry-on luggage.
>Which is stupid!!
>Because Gatorade is not the problem.
>Muslims are the problem.
>Can we be honest enough to just admit that for a minute? The plotters
>uncovered in England wer e all Muslims. They all had Muslim names. They all
>but one or two were of Pakistani descent. They were motivated by religious
>bigotry. They wanted to kill because they were Muslim and they wanted to
>kill the people they wanted to kill because those people weren't Muslim.
>Yet political correctness forbids us from mentioning that, much less acting
>In fact, on the ABC network news over the weekend, the plotters were called
>British Extremists – as if somehow the fact they were in Great Britain was
>defining of their extremism. The fact is they were Muslim extremists, but
>the American media is so in bed with the diversity-training crowd that fact
>can't be mentioned.
>Also on American newscasts over the weekend, the story was told of three
>men buying thousands of disposable and untraceable cell phones, an activity
>with possible terrorist linkages. Not surprisingly , very few accounts noted
>that the men were Muslims with Muslim names.
>Political correctness has sanitized this fight to such an extent that we

>Which is not toothpaste.
>It is Islam.
>An Islam practiced by tens of millions of people around the world and which

>Our desire not to offend Muslims and their culture has great potential to

>Here's what I mean.
>Lets lay aside political correctness for a moment and use scientific

>For example: How many terrorist acts have been committed involving liquids
>carried onto airplanes by passengers?
>Second question: How many terrorist acts involving airliners have been
>committed by Muslims?
>Answer: All of them.
>Third question: Why are we focused on liquids instead of Muslims?
>Answer: Beats me.
>Why is it that the protection of our airline industry is focused on
>products, not people? Why is it that we go to such extreme lengths to
>screen materials, but purposely avoid screening the people who carry them?
>Wouldn't we be safer if we focused our security efforts largely on Muslim
>passengers? Especially young, male Muslim passengers? Isn't the fact that
>every single act of airliner terrorism involved a young, male Muslim
>Does it make sense to take away a mother's bottle of Children's Tylenol and
>a grandmother's bottle of Coke while at the same time purposely not
>profiling likely terrorists?
>Can't we be honest enough to admit that profiling potential terrorists by
>religion, national origin, gender and age is a good idea? Aren't we bright
>enough to understand that asking a few extra questions of a young Muslim
>airline passenger is not the same as pulling over a black man just because
>he's driving in a white neighborhood?
>A group of people was arrested last week for plotting a terrorist attack.
>They were young Muslim men. Just like the group before that and the group
>before that and the group before that. And the group before that.
>So, naturally, you can't take Chapstick on an airplane.
>Toiletries don't commit acts of terrorism.
>Maybe if the government spent less time looking at y our carry-on bag and

>This isn't about Gatorade, this is about jihad. It's time to stop focusing

>People who happen to be Muslim.
