Terrorist profiling

President Obama and many in the media have consistently warned us to be careful not to exhibit Islamophobia, and they have succeeded.

The neighbors of the San Bernardino couple who massacred 14 people Dec. 2 saw many package deliveries and Middle Eastern friends arriving but were afraid of being accused of profiling. So they did not report it.

The thousands of dollars worth of ammunition, pipe bombs and the many visitors might be an indication of terrorism.

Attorney General Loretta Lynch then let us know that she will hold anyone responsible if they voice anti-Muslim opinions.

Perhaps she should help us with some guidelines to follow before we “see something, say something” when observing potential terrorism.

Political correctness can kill you, and it might be responsible for killing 14 people in San Bernardino.

A neighbor of the terrorist couple saw suspicious activity at the home but didn’t want to “profile” them. Remember: “If you see something, say something.”

Nobody has a right to not be offended. You’ll get over it. But you won’t get over being dead.

GOP debate

After watching the Republican candidates’ debate Tuesday night, I feel less safe now than I did before the debate.

It seems that none of the presidential candidates has a clue about national security or how to deal with terrorists from groups like ISIS.

They made statements like “carpet bomb them,” including women and children, go after their families, close our borders to refugees, etc.

It’s clear to me and many others that they don’t have a clue. Scary!

It’s demoralizing that the CNN clown debate Tuesday night concentrated on fear, negativity, violence and war.

It seemed like a commercial for the military-industrial complex. The apparent purpose was to boost the ratings for CNN rather than to provide a useful public service.

I recently suggested on Facebook that we might want to pray for sanity. Could we add maturity to that?
