It's just not worth the hassle. There are places in America I'd still quite like to visit, but I'm not going to bother. Being made to endure the insanity of US airport "security" processes is not acceptable to me, and I'm not alone: Aside from all the other people who have decided a US vacation isn't worth the effort, go ask American tourism operators how they feel about it all.

"Network Engineer". (Technician.) "Software Engineer". (Programmer.) If they don't have an bona fide engineering degree from a legitimate university, or if they don't drive trains or maintain a ship's engines, then they already are in sales...every day they try to sell themselves as something they're not.

Adhering to atheism simply because one dislikes religion is no more rational or enlightened than adhering to any one religion.

I am not religious and dislike religion because religion and religious tenets has absolutely zero basis in fact and reality, yet a huge chunk of humanity chooses to devotes a lot of time to religion, while education and science struggle against it. Religious people desperately cling to the false hope that non-religious people "Hate us because they envy our God!", when in fact non-religious people despise the unwillingness of the religious to grow up and face reality.

"Mossad". There's a difference. It's why so many non-Israeli Jews detest both Mossad and Israel. (Well, not necessarily Israel, but certainly the rabid Zionists that infest the place and give the rest of us a bad name.)

"So, you've just apprehended a bunch of Mossad agents in NYC while they were cheering and high-fiving as they watched those airliners hitting the Twin Towers? Quietly deport them and pretend the whole thing never happened.
