Remember! Remember! Remember!

This is a reprint from one I found a couple of years ago that I think is even more relevant now.
I found this floating around a couple of places and do not know who the author is. I wish I had written it, but I didn’t. If it belongs to you, I will give you either credit or take it down, whichever you request. I found it on a humor page initially, but I thought it was a little too much for http://herbshumor.blogdrive.com/
I didn’t have time to update it to reflect recent events, but it’s all the same.

Remember, as the Good Book says, Anger is a weapon only to one’s opponent and get in the first shot! Or was that Ti Kwan Leep? Anyway, give ’em a boot to the head.

Profiling
To insure we Americans never offend anyone, particularly fanatics intent on killing us, airport screeners will not be allowed to profile people. They will continue random searches of 80-year-old women, little kids, airline pilots with proper identification, Secret Service agents who are members of the President’s security detail, 85-year old Congressmen with metal hips, and Medal of Honor winning former governors.
