    stm4710 I agree that was politicly in-correct it was also in bad taste to place a link such as that in a forum for firefighters. I hope you dont think a song making fun of 9/11 is funny. I may be over reacting here what does everyone else think.

    It's not exactly making fun of 9/11...I think it's aimed more at making fun of "towelheads".

    It's not PC, but alot of things in the world aren't either...

    Thumbs down

    Pretty tasteless in my opinion.

    Stupid jokes like that just serve to propogate false stereotypes. You know, sort of like the one that says Americans are rude, self-centered, and insensitive to other nationalities (and we wonder why it just won't go away).

    What false sterotypes? In the history of airplane hi-jackings how many were calm and collective white guys? Nope, all have been radical militant muslims.

    stm, I'll admit, I liked it, and I don't care about what type of stereotype message it sends.
    All you people on your high horse thinking that feeling bad because this song may hurt some feeling, get over it. I've said it before, i'll say it again- radical, extremist, muslim terrorists don't like you, or me, or anything American.
    Why do people feel guilty about being an American?

    I have heard that before and thought it was funny.

    Mcaldwell, when you become "sensitive" to other nationalities, you get what happened on 9-11. If Canada wasn't so "sensitive" to these vermin, maybe they would not have been able to come into this country.


    If you want to see what America would look like with John Kerry as the POTUS, look to the North at Canada (East of Alberta.)

    It's funny...IMHO.

    As for who committs hijacking, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aircraft_hijacking is kind of interesting in which group comes up in perponderence for the "significant" ones.

    Wonder if hijacking has continued to decline since then -- and while the Sinatra parody may have been in humors, there's attitudes there that are important.

    If we become a society in a straight-jacket of "politically correct" intolerance, we're in far worse shape then one that can joke around -- but still understand what is humor and what is reality.

    Tiller, post factually, NOT all the terrorists enter the US from Canada (I know you did not directly say that ALL entered from Canada, however, from the tone of your post it would seem that is what you are implying). That's a derogatory, inflammatory, blame laying statement. Does anyone know, statistically how many "suspected" terrorists cross the border from Canada to the US??? I'm not saying that Canada doesn't have a complacent attitude toward allowing people into the the country, however I don't think laying blame is right either. I have my views on the amount of immigrants allowed into any one given country and the liberties allowed to said immigrants, however, I'll keep those opinions to myself to avoid offending anyone.

    No, but some of the 9-11 terrorists did and the guy who was planning on Blowing up LAX on New Year's Eve 1999 came through Canada. That's enough for me to pass the judgement.

    Yes Tiller, there was a case of one being detained after taking the Coho to Seattle, however, the US has let several in through their immigration process in the past too. It does no good to dwell on "what has happened", the time has come to rectify and change practices to avoid similar occurrences from happening. Playing the blame game does not bring forth change, it simply passes responsibility and ownership of a problem from one to another.

    Regardless of where they entered this country, the fact remains that we are a tolerant society and don't want impediments to our enjoyment of coffee, movies, sporting events or air flights.
    We have been told by the highest courts that we must condone the beliefs/actions of those different from our's and that we cannot profile people based on religion, race or gender.
    With that said, I can't help but be cynical of someone with explosives strapped to their chest and let's be REAL honest here; there is only one culture currently more likely to do that than any other race or religion. I'll give you gender. Both men and women are blowing themselves up.
    The reality is that I am not as tolerant or patient as I once was. I am suspicious of particular sects. I have a strong dislike for people who would like to see indiscriminant harm to Americans.
    I like to hear that some were captured or killed.
    And I won't apologize for that.

    I don't think that it's Canada's job to protect our borders. That's why we have INS. We need to do a better job making sure that we let people in that have a legitimate reason to be here, that we track them when they are here, and ship them out when their Visas expire. And I'm willing to pay more federal tax dollars to pay for this just as soon as all the Senators and Congressman in the US Congress stop discretionary spending.

    That means all of them, regardless of nationality, race, ethnic origin and religion.

    If you want to become a U.S. Citizen follow the rules just like we are supposed to do in any other country, even Canada.

    Sorry rant off now.

    If Canada wants open borders with us as they were pre-9/11, then they need to take care of who they let on to the continent through their ports of entry.

    Paying for such protection would be another discretionary spending, just one that you would like rather then one that others like. It is all a big balancing act, that for all its wobles is done pretty darn well in the agregate.
