Nobody does. But the fact is, DPW will not handle port security. It will be handled the way it is done now: by Customs and the Coast Guard.

I wanna make sure I understand this. When the govt. required that all airport security be actual US citizens, people on the left screamed bigotry. When the govt. finally decided it was time to start deporting people who over stayed their visas, it was bigotry. When the govt. locked up suspected terrorists, it was bigotry. When the govt. made it harder to get a visa from middle east it was bigotry. People don't want this deal to go thru because the company is arab/ muslim, that's not bigotry?

Don't get me wrong. I don't think any foriegn company should be running our ports. I especially don't like the idea of the Chinese running anything here.

There may not be 1 US company that can run all our ports, but surely there are several that can share the task? If not, then why not? What's preventing US companies from being able to compete in this field?

Seems like you agree with what everyone is saying, so why did you feel the need to add this? :shk:

Because it's true. Just pointing out some political hypocrysy. Some try to go to great lenghts to appear to be all about fairness and equality when in the end, it's all about politics and controlling people.

You're assuming this. 'People' don't like this deal for various reasons. That happens with people. We don't all think with one mind.

My biggest complaint about this deal is the way it was done. Without the required congressional approval and 30-day investigation. I believe dgtempe posted about it in one of these threads. The way 'the administration' did it is against the law.

There's a whole lot fishy about this deal without regard to the race/religion of the people in UAE. If you read over the threads, you'll see that there are many reasons to be suspicious of this deal, you just picked that one for some reason.

What's that, if not bigotry?

If you say so.

If that's true, then impeach him. The majority of the country is against this. Republicans and Democrats in the House and Senate are against it. If you were gonna inpeach a President, I'd think this would stick, if it were actually against the law.

I'm a bigot. I hate communists purely because they are communists.
