      much do you trust him to not nuke an entire city should your civil war starts? Are you sure about these points you're making?

        Freaking out about the whole range of terrifying weapons of war the President potentially might  select to attack us while we're sitting at Starbucks seems rather, well, paranoid to me.

        Frankly, even GWB pretty much left us alone, other than the creepy TSA apparatus -- which, hey! look at that! -- the Obama TSA is slowly reducing to more reasonable levels.

        The espresso-sipping hipster sitting next to you hacking into your laptop while we sit and imagine all the scary capabilities actually poses a lot more risk.  

        That said, I'll be really furious if the President gives the ok to release sarin gas into the store before I finish my caramel macchiato, which I order only as a rare treat.

        Those darn things are expensive.

        So if you get hit by a bus tonight, would you be satisfied with how you spent today, your last day on earth? Live like tomorrow is never guaranteed, because it's not. -- Me.
