dangerous place to live

A Great Article

According to http://www.casualties.org, there have been 88 hostile fire deaths caused by firearms since the beginning of hostilities in Iraq. The remainder of coalition deaths have been due to explosives or accidents.
What does this mean? If you consider that there have been an average of 160,000 troops in theater during the last 22 months, that gives a firearm death rate of 55 per 100,000.
The rate in Washington DC is 80.6 per 100,000. That means that you are more likely to be shot and killed in our Nation's Capitol, (which has some of the strictest gun control laws in the nation) than you are in Iraq.
The conclusion? We should immediately pull out of WASHINGTON, DC.

As long as the bad guys are using missles, rockets or chemical weapons, sure.

OK...but kids could do terrible thing like… tossing balloons filled with bleach and ammonia at groups people… that could get real nasty… and you and get that anywhere…for cheap... and 5-0 couldn't even trace it if they didn't catch anybody... not mass... but disruptive... I'm sure

Of course they do. However, it's the Man's fault for oppressing the good citizens of Washington DC, many of whom voted to re-elect a crackhead mayor with a sweet tooth for prostitutes.
