Here's the notion people like Sean give us...because Terrorists do something, all of us must conform and give up that activity to show we don't support it. Actually, doesn't that sound as if we're showing them we're afraid of them, or are succumbing to their wishes? So a terrorist wears a scarf, we can't wear scarves...what's next- underwear? Get real.

There's nothing wrong with the America: Love it or leave it mentality, but what is wrong is the misinterpretation of America. Have we forgotten the beauty of this country's first amendment? What is wrong with Muslim attire, and why should it automatically associate you with terrorist activity? I don't see anyone giving Shakira a hard time for belly dancing, nor giving the Dropkick Murphy's a hard time for singing in celtic style (one could say they rep. the IRA.) People with such bigoted mentality need to go live in the countries they are bashing, because they really sound like mysogonists.
I agree with you except one thing. Misogyny is the hatred of women. I think their hatred goes much deeper than that. They hate the unknown. Or they hate themselves and have no other way to lash out.

I agree. I have already boycotted underwear just to make sure no one mistakes me for a terrorist sympathizer. <wink>

It seems to me that the ones offering aid and comfort to the enemy are the ones screaming and running around yelling "the sky is falling!" when a girl in a donut ad wears a scarf. Terrorists must lick their chops at the thought of attacking an opponent so gullible and weak.

On the other hand, seeing Americans with a calm perspective, enjoying life,(and donuts), in spite of their hateful antics, would frustrate the terrorists to no end.

<quoted text>Hi reebie! Amazing is at dinner with Jim and their respective spouses, I do believe. I am so jealous!!! Anyway, I am hoping she may be on later. I know I will be. I promised my kids I would take them to a movie. We are going to the 'ghetto' theater to see "The Ruins" but I will be on when we get back. Don't start the party without us! I am bringing pina colada's. And a scarf!
Just one correction- Jim's wife wasn't there because she is in Ohio- which, coincidentally enough, is where my hubby is originally from!

So it was the 3 of us and it was a really fun time. Jim's a great guy, and we all seemed to hit it off. We're hoping to get together with him and his wife in the coming weeks and we talked about how great it would have been if you guys could have been there as well, but we were thinking of ya!:-)

Going "commando" I see!

I'm not so sure. It's possible that a terrorist might not wear underwear too so that could be a real problem.

No, no..if I wanted to make an anti-terrorist fashion statement, I'd pick something they'd never wear. Something like..oh, I don't know..a paisley scarf maybe

With the kind of thinking of Malkin and her followers, the terrorists don't have to do a damn thing. They can just sit back and enjoy the show as they watch Americans themselves shake our foundation and then destroy that foundation and the tenets of this country while at the same these Americans promote terrorism from within.

Talk about being one's own worst in enemy! Americans will be their OWN undoing and the undoing of this country and all without the "help" of outside terrorists.

I used the word misogyny because I truly feel Rachel Ray was targeted because she is a female. Maybe that's outlandish but then again I totally agree with you- people like Sean hate everything!
