Beware Al-Coucha

July 1, 2012

Hey all I just read an article about the recent terrorism report for 2011 from the National Counter Terrorism Center (NCTC). As it turns out the report breaks down the number of people killed in terrorism events over the past year and while the results were of no surprise to me, they might be a surprise to some Americans.

As the Atlantic puts it:

According to the report, the number of U.S. citizens who died in terrorist attacks increased by two between 2010 and 2011; overall, a comparable number of Americans are crushed to death by their televisions or furniture each year.

That’s right folks, we have given up our rights, created the TSA, and spent billions on an increased defense budget (while our schools continue to languish) all in the name of protecting us from something which is about as dangerous as your TV or couch.
