The No-fly, No-buy list: first guns and now cars

Remember what a href=""Rahm Emmanuel said/a about being one of the b1,000,000 Americans/b on the No-fly list:br /br /blockquotespan style="font-style:italic;"“if you’re on that no-fly list, your access to the right to bear arms is cancelled, because you’re not part of the American family; you don’t deserve that right. There is no right for you if you’re on that terrorist list.”/span/blockquotebr /br /Now, it seems that your right to purchase a car has also been cancelled--from a href=""Alphecca/a [a car salesman in real life]:br /br /blockquotespan style="font-style:italic;"A guy of middle-eastern decent (born in Afghanistan) wants to buy a car. We agree on the price, he fills out a credit-ap and we run it. Rock Star, as we say in the biz, 815 FICO score with 92% of his current credit available. Well employed at a famous medical school. Should be “No Problem” getting him financed, right?br /br /Wrong. His name brings up a flag on AMPAC, the American Patriot Act terrorist watch list. Well, his name is similar to other names on the list, so, banks are not allowed to loan money to him. It means he can’t get the car and I can’t get the sale./span/blockquotebr /br /But, of course, we don't live in a police /br /And if you think otherwise we can have a warrant draw up for your arrest.div class="blogger-post-footer"img width='1' height='1' src=''//div
