NUGENT: Profile or die
Washington Times ^ | May 7 2010 | Ted Nugent

Posted on 05/07/2010 8:26:18 PM PDT by NoLibZone

I profile my daughter's dates. I profile my children's friends.

I profile my band mates and employees.

I profile the fruit I am about to purchase.

I profile the sky in order to ascertain my potential need for rain gear. I profile the cleanliness of dining establishments and smiling all the way, I profile the general public as I pleasantly stroll the not-so-mean streets of America.

Conditional and environmental awareness is a powerful survival tool. Write that down.

Failing to profile based on one's life experiences is to abandon man's basic instinct to learn through trial and error. Such trials, when cataloged by intelligent people, reduce and oftentimes eliminate unnecessary future errors. This is good.

Oh, and by the way, one plus one still equals two, no matter how uncomfortable with the number two anyone may or may not be. Know it.

See if you can spot the Dalmatian.

Faisal Shahzad trained with terrorist bomb-makers in Pakistan, and married his way into naturalized American citizenship before parking his car bomb in Times Square.

El Sayyid Nosair worshipped under the blind Islam cleric for years before bombing the World Trade Center in 1993. He also married his way into America.

Ali Mohamed was a known top aide to Osama bin Laden before helping to blow up the U.S. embassies in Africa. He too used the marriage scam to enter the United States.

Khalid Abu al-Dahab trained to bomb the embassies. He married his way into U.S. citizenship.

It is time for America to get tough and intolerant to such clear and present dangers to America and Americans. Profile, act, secure. Feelings be damned. Americans be saved.

When I was in junior high, admittedly only from 1996-99, when we played football before class started, it was blacks vs. whites. And this in a NYC public school. Dunno how the faculty took it, but it was still pretty non-PC when I was a kid.

Sometimes paranoia pays.

I wouldn't call it paranoia but increased sensitivity. Ted understands what it means to be in total wilderness. So do I. I'm not a hunter but a bird surveyor, and I rely on all my senses to identify every winged thing that moves -- through the slightest sound or glimpse.

I appreciate and understand Ted's point completely. All humans have amazing powers of sensitivity that are seldom cultivated. But we shouldn't be afraid (through political correctness) to apply them.

Basic point: Trust your instincts. You'll live longer if you do.

"Sometimes paranoia pays."

To keep your eyes open is not paranoia. It is common sense. To keep your eyes closed is a good way to trip on something you didn't see.

Its sad that the libtards had to hang the racial tag on doing a profile. When you are looking for a terrorist it only makes sense to focus on Arabs. When you are looking for illegal aliens in Arizona, hispanics seem to be the ones you might look for. Libtards offer no solutions just crap. The Governor of Arizona would gain support if she amended the law to require that officials check 100% of folks they stop. However this won’t make em happy. Any group that starts with the premise that police are evil racist thugs, are looking to gain an advantage in the debate.

I guess the answer is to do what is right regardless of the feelings of libtards. Oh and it might be nice to vote these rat bastards out of office this November.

I'll be up your way soon doing some bird surveys. Can't wait to hit the Snake Range, Egan Range, and the magnificent Ruby Mountains.

It’s Not Paranoia.

It’s Situational Awareness.

Sometimes they really are out to get you.

Sometimes It’s just Random Violence.

Either way You are Just as Dead,

What Ted means is - If political mechanisms and or voting means are taken out of our hands by the cheating methods as usual by the Rat Party, it will be time to take our country back by force... and that is NO JOKE!!!

We won't be the first or the last nation that has had a blood-letting revolution. Bet on it! It all depends how bad you want to keep your freedom! These arrogant leftists will cheat and lie to no end until they get what they want. They might be on the receiving end of things they never bargained for!

The bottom line is, the left is telling you and I that we shouldn't "profile"...using "racism" and all that malarkey to enhance the "guilt trip".

But what they are telling you is, you are way too stupid to pass judgement on, or make any choices on your own. If you think a hispanic guy with a gun in both hands and bullet belts crossed over his chest while burning an American flag "looks dangerous", you are "profiling" and you should just stand there looking stupid as he reloads to shoot your ass dead.

In other words, don't think, don't do anything except blindly accept whomever they want to throw at you...be a robot. They have got to de-sensitize you to the kind of people they prefer...thugs. That way the thugs can do whatever they want and Joe Whitebread American will slink in fear - not from being harmed - but from being "judgemental".

It's all a bunch of crap. Even dogs and cats have instinct to know when something or someone is dangerous or not, but we're asked to just accept whatever...and we're doing it, like a population of dumb-asses..

It's how they control us. This political correctness crap has made us FEAR what we are guaranteed in the First Amendment...speech, FREEDOM of speech.

Unless Americans "steel up", we are going to become modern day slaves...

No Fear

how do we repeatedly allow liberals to give good things a bad name?

“Profiling” is a necessary and perfectly legitimate investigative tool

The next time some idiot liberal says “but thats profiling” say “Yer dam right it is!!! and thank god we can do that”

I’ve been slammed here before by suggesting that law enforcement is ham-strung by black/white ( maybe I should say either/or) rules of engagement. I believe there always exists a little gray area where reasonable officers might read a situation differently, especially when it comes to suspicion of or prevention of a crime, a domestic disturbance or other hot scene where someone might need to be arrested but you don’t have all the facts or the luxury of time to get the facts.

One PC solution for prevention is “random” searching. Pull every 10th in line for enhanced search, etc.

It’s like putting a blindfold on and swinging at a pinata.

The very term “reasonable suspicion” implies that something about the individual sets off your instinctive alarms. Appearance (matching description), behavior, mannerisms, dress, actions, direction of travel or speed of travel all guide an officer apprehending a criminal after a crime.

Take it a step further to anticipating crime and you must add profiling to randomness ( since you really can’t strip search everyone everywhere). This means you have to use race, religion, ethnicity, manner of speech, dress, attitude and demeanor, eye contact or lack thereof, or other less definable sensory input to be effective.

I think the goal is to be effective. If statistics point to certain criteria as being high probability, then the suspicion becomes reasonable.

Cats and dogs seem to posses more common sense than many humans do and that is very sad.

It isn’t paranoia. It’s using God-given common sense and experiential facts.

The left doesn’t believe in doing that, that’s why they demonize people that attempt to apply common sense as racist, sexist, whatever. Sorry buddy, I don’t care how much you want to believe it, a 5 ft 100 pound woman ain’t gonna be a fireman that can carry another 200 pound fireman out of a building.

They have replaced God-given common sense with utopian Political Correctness.

I'm right there with you, patriot. But really, the right has been cowered into impotence. Every thought word and deed has been self shackled by PC. The first person here who cheers the first person who employs violence will be banned. Even here and where else is there?

You may be right but, right now my advice is retreat.
