  •  Anti-Americanism (5+ / 0-)

    There is evidently a new book out entitled "Overblown".  It's done by a professor in Illinois, Indiana, referenced on This Week.  Says that chances of an American being killed in this country by a terrorist attack is roughly equal to an American's chances of being hit by a comet.

    Since 2004, anti-Americanism has increased.  Some studies indicate that the rest of the world has turned not only against the American government but the American people.  Afterall, the government was dumb but after the reelection of Bush, folks in the rest of the world began to deduce that the American people were equally dumb.  

    This is the price we pay for a hyperbolic media.

    •  I remember a study (0+ / 0-)

      that came out in the '70s that said that a woman over 35, who had never been married, had roughly the same chance of getting married as being killed by terrorists.  I would hazard a guess that the statistics haven't changed much.
