The barbaric idiocy of security protocols absent race, age, gender and National origin are inexcusable. Imagine your boss assigning you the task of choosing a company basketball team, which will defeat a competing Company’s already established team. You are to choose 10 players from a pool of 100 candidates which your employer has provided. If you fail to pick a winning team, your future employment will not be secure and you will no longer be eligible for a scheduled salary increase. Although a severe consequence, it pales in comparison to the potential death and destruction associated with allowing a terrorist into our Country through Airport Security. To fully comply with our Nation’s absurd ACLU driven anti-discrimination doctrine, you are not allowed to consider the age, height, size, overall health, athletic experience, ethnicity or gender of the 10 players you pick for your company’s team. In turn, these requirements force you to disregard all intellectual knowledge you have gathered throughout your life relating to statistical advantage and common sense. Following the far-left, liberal non- discrimination model, you could not choose a healthy, 24 year old, 6’11” male (who started on his College basketball team) over a 56 year old, slightly overweight, diabetic female employee, based on any of the aforementioned criteria. I imagine, you would need to next evaluate and compare some other non-relevant to your goal metric before you could pick one person over the other. Does anyone actually apply such decision making foolishness in the real world?
