Comparing this to someone wearing a ski mask is a bit of a stretch..........come on now !!!!

People wear ski masks when it's cold, or comitting a crime to hide their identity. When have you ever walked down the street in the summer and seen people casually walking around with ski masks on !?!?!? That's silly, I understand that the beliefs of our culture make banning this stuff a slippery and complicated debate. But some things are very simple.

If you won't show your face for a drivers license picture, then you don't get a drivers license. If you don't show your identity before boarding a plane........well............you don't get on the plane. We keep worrying about the sensitivies of people who don't give a rats behind about ours. Why does common sense seem to be forbidding in our politically correct society ????

I wouldn't walk down the streets of Saudi Arabia wearing a cross and speaking of Jesus. Because I know I would get arrested. Hence............I DON'T GO TO SAUDI ARABIA ! Western Culture is doomed by our own stupidity. Once things get really bad (as history shows) we will elect a president that's a strong man and/or dictator who will take care of things in a no nonsense cold hearted way.

Which mean all of our civil liberties will be thrown out the window, we will live in a policed state. We need to have the courage to stand up for our culture and our religions (and yes I meant religions plural because islam considers all other religions their enemy) and stop apologizing for things that are NOT OUR FAULT !
