    This is more for fun but a serious issue being worried about is some of those (People who don't look like me or my neighbor Bob) Muslim terrorists killing them. To listen to Trump, Christy, or other repug's, crazy Muslims are surely going to kill you without D Trumps great protective leaderships. It turns out Cows are more likely to kill you. Tell them what to fear and watch those sheep get in line.

    No amount of facts to the contrary will convince some Americans that they are far more likely to be killed by a lightning strike than in a terrorist attack. Thirty-six (you are reading that correctly) Americans have been killed in terrorist attacks on American soil since January 2002. Thirty-six.

    Americans need to fear heart disease, cancer, diabetes, and the flu.

    Jared absolutely correct. The point is how do you get half of all Americans so f..... crazy to accept the fear mongering and elect some nuthead to stop this "huge" (ridiculous) danger and vote for Trump? It only shows how stupid people are on this arrogant "island"

    How you can hate a country that gave you everything you have with as much fervor as you do truly baffles me.


    Anyone who has the most basic understanding of world history would know that demagoguery and fear mongering have been around for millennia. Suggesting that some Americans are the only ones to fall prey to it shows a genuine ignorance of world history.
