TSA Manager said He was Told to Profile Somalis

http://www.mprnews.org/story/2016/04/27/tsa-manager-says-he-was-told-to-profile-somalis-msp-airport

My sense of outrage over this story has been squelched  by the numerous news stories regarding Somalis found guilty of trying to aid ISIS.

In other words, if Swedes were found guilty of aiding ISIS, I would expect that they would be profiled; in order to keep the larger population safe.

I'm sorry if this does not sound politically correct, but it seems both practical and logical.

Justin Bieber Should Shut Up

I know very little about Justin Bieber except he seems to get in trouble a lot. Now he has decided to be disrespectful to Prince who passed away just yesterday. Some people should just shut up and Bieber is one of them.

Dearly Beloved...

Prince has died.
There's a purple rain.
When doves cry.
I'm going to party like it's 1999.

This reporter couldn't believe anyone was watching "Live," so after Michael Strahan left that was just the last nail-in-the-coffin. Kelly Ripa is now also missing from the show; so maybe it does have a chance of continuing after all.

It seems that Russian warplanes keep buzzing U.S. ships and planes for some reason. When asked about the most recent event, word from Moscow is that they were just looking for a lost puppy.

What Happens When You Blame the Police?

When the shooters are black do the lives of the murdered people still matter?
Maybe the police aren't really the problem...
