AN AMERICAN AIRLINES PILOT SPEAKS HIS MIND

 A newspaper stated that some Muslim doctor is saying we are profiling him because he has been checked three times while getting on an airplane. The following is a letter from a pilot.This well-spoken man, who is a pilot with American Airlines, says what is in his heart, beautifully. 

 YOU WORRY ME! 

 By Captain John Maniscalco, American Airlines Pilot 

    I've been trying to say this since 911, but you worry me. 

    I wish you didn't. I wish when I walked down the streets of this country that I love, that your colour and culture still blended with the beautiful human landscape we enjoy in this country. But you don't blend in anymore. I notice you, and it worries me.

     I notice you because I can't help it anymore. People from your homelands, professing to be Muslims, have been attacking and killing my fellow citizens and our friends for more than 20 years now. I don't fully understand their grievances and hate, but I know that nothing can justify the inhumanity of their attacks.

      On September 11, ARAB-MUSLIMS hijacked four jetliners in my country. They cut the throats of women

The Tyranny of Cliches by Jonah Goldberg

tyranny_of_cliches3.jpgIn "Politics and the English Language," George Orwell says that a writer can avoid the heavy lifting of making an original or insightful argument by simply turning his pen on autopilot and fueling it with "ready made" clichés. "They will construct your sentences for you — even think your thoughts for you, to a certain extent — and at need they will perform the important service of partially concealing your meaning even from yourself," writes Orwell. "It is at this point that the special connection between politics and the debasement of language becomes clear." More than a half century later, liberalism (and too much of conservatism) has switched to autopilot. For reasons I will discuss below, liberalism imposes itself not through sustained argument, but through a shabby tyranny of clichés, which hides its ideological underpinnings behind a façade of trite phrases and homespun truisms.

Let us start with the example of "social justice."

In the Oscar-robbed movie Caddyshack, Danny — the protagonist — desperately wants to win the annual Bushwood Country Club scholarship, which is set aside for impressive young caddies. He meets with Judge Smails, who is in charge of awarding the scholarship. The encounter is awkward, because Danny was recently caught in flagrante delicto with the judge's niece.

Eager to show how fair he is, Smails explains his thinking:

You know, despite what happened,
