Even terrorists influenced by al Qaeda-like ideas have only killed 17 people in the United States since 9/11.

About the same number of Americans are killed every year by dogs. In other words, in the United States during the past decade, dogs have been around ten times more deadly than jihadist terrorists.

The author of the article that is from is basically arguing against spending so many resources fighting terrorism. Do you agree or disagree with this sentiment?

Also, if you were prescribed a medication that was making you feel overall physically crappy, and especially intensely nauseas with absolutely no appetite, how long would you be willing to keep taking it/seeing if symptoms would subside before giving up and asking/demanding that your doc switch you to something else?
