Mid-Term Elections are Coming Up!!

Americans back profiling Islamic suicide terrorists
"Americans widely endorse the use of profiling to single out airline passengers for more intensive security searches before they board U.S. flights, based on their age, ethnicity, or gender. Seventy-one percent are in favor of this practice and 27% are opposed."
"Eighty-three percent of self-identified conservatives favor the use of profiling, compared with 47% of liberals."
"The poll results suggest that Americans seem to give greater weight to protecting citizens against possible terrorism than to protecting against potential violations of individual liberties."
Hey. Any of you yanks out there who might read this, can you tell me if the framers of the Declaration of Independence deliberately chose the order of these words: "Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness"? It seems to me you gotta have the first in order to have the second and the first two, in that order, in order to do the third, but is that what they were thinking, too?

Anyway, glad to see the wimps haven't prevailed.
