WHAT?


Don't tell me that you've never seen "Life of Brian," either?
The Christian church, in its attitude toward science, shows the mind of a more or less enlightened man of the Thirteenth Century. It no longer believes that the earth is flat, but it is still convinced that prayer can cure after medicine fails.

-- H. L. Mencken

No one is safe - ever. If it's not guns it'll be something else, like heart attacks or auto accidents or meteors (or gringos?) falling from the sky. Maybe self-driving cars will decrease the number of auto-related deaths and injuries, but nothing comparable is likely going to be available for guns, since self-shooting guns won't work well. The gun nuts don't like the idea of biometric safeties for guns, either, so that's unlikely to help.

I figure I won't be safe until I'm covered by six feet of dirt.

We 'new atheists' have a reputation for being militant, but make no mistake  we didn't start this war. If you want to place blame put it on the the religious zealots who have been poisoning the minds of the  young for a long long time."

It all depends on the odds.  If I'm not likely to have a heart attack, then I worry about guns or distracted drivers. 

If our normal lifetime was 1,000 years, do you think there would be adjacent lane highways?  If we lived 10 years, would anyone worry about cancer?  A lot depends on insurance statistics, meaning what is most likely to kill us before average.

I suspect we mostly worry about things that aren't likely to kill us.  But that doesn't mean I don't want to reduce some of those. 

MEANING, if self driving cars kill 1% of us and save 2%, bring them on!

Fear not, the republicunts know what to do.



The Democrats do too.  Send their regiments of gray wool rebel socialists against Ft Sumter.
