Yes I did and still not fearful. I don't believe in God either so it has nothing to do with that. I just refuse to fear something and change my life or views because of it. I am also not an idiot. I don't ride motorcycles without a helmet, shower with a toaster next to me or anything like that. But I will not walk through life looking over my shoulder either.

Well, the republicans would call me a liberal, but I am a conservative elitist for Obama.

I'll bet those killed in the World Trade Center on 9-11 would love the opportunity to worry about the risk of a car accident.

"i am genuinely afraid that this political system will not react until we lose a city. and nobody in this country has thought about the threat to our civil liberties the morning after we decide its that dangerous and how rapidly we will impose ruthlessness on ourselves in that kind of a world."

"i think those of you who care about civil liberties, have better be thinking about how we win this war, before the casualties get so great that the American people voluntarily give up a lot of those liberties."

Just as all of those killed in car accidents last year would love to have rolled the dice with terrorism. What's your point?

i am not a religious person either. but i can not ignore religious fanatics that dedicate there lives to kill me, you or anyone else deemed American just to do it.

the 2 sattack on the world trade center - 9/11, the train bombing, not to mention all the embassy's worldwide. the problem is, what will it take to make America realize the greater issue at hand? losing a city to Iran from a nuclear bomb?

A silly post.

Dead is dead.
We lose what... 40,000+ people each year in auto accidents - equivalent to a 9-11 attack EVERY MONTH!!!!
A MUCH greater risk than dying in a terrorist attack.

The point is, I'm not going to let fear rule my life. You are certainly free to live in fear if you wish.

I choose not to.
Instead I choose to use common sense.
