Feeling Safer Yet?

KTK at Lean Left is not being very civil when he hands out his Annie Jacobsen Award, 2007. He is so nasty, that he brings in facts, and we all know about the liberal bias in facts. He even prints a chart:

Hideous Danger Yearly Death Rate
Terrorism 1/769,230
Liposuction 1/5,000
Pedestrian Accidents 1/58,000
Firearms 1/366,000
Recreational Boating 1/399,000
Bicycling 1/410,000

This is totally unfair. He shows us that we are absolute fools to spend the gazillions of dollars to protect the Shrubbery from terrorists, and then let him ride his bike or go out on his Dad’s boat. Fortunately he doesn’t walk much.

Damn…I tried clicking on a few of the icons in the hopes of “playing the game”…it just sits there. Now if they made a game out of this….

You have to be on the National Security Council to get the password for the game version.

Very impressive blinky map there, but it doesn’t list me reporting on suspicious activity at my neighbor’s house. They have a lot of cars parked oddly close to their house, a whole bunch of people I’ve never seen are sitting around the table laughing, and …. let me adjust my binoculars… they are doing some sort of ritualistic stabbing of a large bird on the table! Obviously a secret cabal of suicidal terroristic bombers exchanging weapons of mass destruction-related program activities! I’ve called the FBI, CIA, and the NSA but the fools are all out celebrating Thanksgiving!

Thanks, Bryan. Now I won’t need to put up a Christmas tree…

The map does overdo it more than a little.

NSA is lying to you, Ellroon, I never got Thanksgiving off. We were a 24/7 operation, and the only way you got a holiday was with vacation time.
