Profiling! Lance Armstrong

Heard on local radio 8/24/12:

A  sheriff’s deputy stops two guys in a pick-up truck in the back country of Santa Cruz  in the middle of the night. They have rifles, ammunition, and a big high-power light in their possession.

One of the two guys is on probation. His probation conditions specify that he must not be near a firearm. Both men are in their forties. Both have white names. (Don’t ask me how I know, I know and so do you – with a high high probability – if you take the trouble to think about it.)

The deputy’s attention was first drawn to the pick-up because someone had thrown an empty beer can out of its window.

“No profiling.” cry the liberals “It’s unfair!”

N.S.!

Something else ( no connection to profiling):

They can say what they want, Lance Armstrong demonstrated that the American science of biochemistry is superior to the European brand.

And however drugged he was, he did it on one testicle. You try it!
