I Feel So Much Safer Now...SHIT

The Department of Homeland Security has once again protected the homeland from foreign infiltration. This time we're being protected from peace activist Cat Stevens. Just when I thought the world needed a little more peace, the government basically steps in and says that we don't. God forbid that peace break out in America. The Pentagon machine would fall flat on its face.

This has got to be one of the biggest slaps in the face to peace activists everywhere. Not to mention another slap to Muslims. Cat converted to Islam and started living for peace. He has donated to charities the world over, and contributed heavily to the 9-11 victims fund. What does this say about America? We'll take your cash, but stay the hell out? The land of the free, give me a break.

Homeland Security says that he gave to charities that have terrorist ties. That may be true. How is a donor supposed to know what a legal charity does with it's money? These charities also provide for the poor in Palestine. Sometimes people give for the good that others do. That makes sense to me. Mohammad Ali is a Muslim. Is he a terrorist also? We better have DHS check to make sure. Then again they probably have. Not only is he Muslim, he's black too. A double whammy in this day and age.

Say I belong to a Southern Baptist Church and donate money to it's charities. Will I be branded a terrorist because several members of the congregation belong to the Klu Klux Klan? After all, I did donate to their charity. Holding people accountable for their actions is one thing. Holding them accountable for the actions of others is Bull-Shit.

The response from the DHS is that they need to tighten the controls even further because Cat got on the plane to start with. Yes, that's what we need to do. Keep all god loving people out of the country. After all, according to the religious right, this country was founded by god fearing people, not god loving. Maybe there is a difference.
