I composed most of this hours ago before the mod request. It's not arguing, it's just food for thought, so I hope it's okay to post:
"Look like Muslims" is one the most ignorant phrases extant. For instance, Sikh men, with their unshaven beards and turbans, "look like Muslims" more than the majority of Muslims do, and it has gotten many beaten or killed by FITH ignoramuses. There is a Sikh temple right next door to the daycare I own and I worry infinitely more about wack jobs attacking them than I do about the Sikhs themselves. They are the most peaceful people, as indeed are most Muslims.
Most Islamic terrorism is visited upon opposing sects of Islam.
Most radicalized Muslims are not even particularly religious themselves at the time they are radicalized.
Cancer deaths in this country (US) amount to the equivalent of a 9/11 every couple of days. I am in no way equating the causes of death; I know all too well the helplessness of sudden violence taking a loved one (my wife died in a wreck in 2010) but dying slowly while bank accounts drain, homes are lost, and pain increases is no picnic either. The money spent on each problem is ludicrously disproportionate.
My wife loved going on cruises. We always drove because she hated flying (WI to Miami was quite a haul) but on our last one, a few months before the accident, we tried it, and boy, were we rookies! We had like a case of soda loose in our carry-ons, and while we were quite embarrassed, the TSA didn't even find them all! They didn't even pull us aside!
Then our last trip was to Vegas, coincidentally. We didn't pack any soda this time! With our then-7-year-old daughter in tow, we didn't do much Vegas-y stuff. I got to go to the PHOF a couple times. The best part for the whole family was the old west attraction called Bonnie Springs Ranch outside of town. My wife twisted her ankle navigating the "mine" and that fact saved us when we were late to the airport to go home. We would have missed our flight as the TSA line must have been 1000 people long, but we asked for a wheelchair for her and next thing we knew we were whisked through the separate handicapped line in no time flat!
