    No, just that they don't eat people, which is pretty true.

    Okay, that's NOT what happens. Whenever you return to the real world where the US isn't dropping bombs to the point where people in some "Arab country" need to worry about being bombed, you're more than welcome to discuss this topic. However as it stands the overwhelming majority of targeted US bombings haven't been done in civilian heavy areas. Sure. Iraq did get bombed by us and some did die, however it's not as if we're carpet bombing the ****ing place.
    The paranoia exists. When people see stories like these:

    Cable reveals US behind airstrike that killed 21 children in Yemen | The Raw Story

    Study: CIA drones strikes have killed 168 children - Pakistan - Salon.com

    US cluster bombs 'killed 35 women and children' - Telegraph


    There are many other tales of horror that Americans rarely see or hear about. Your telling me to come back to the real world...I'm telling you to stop living in a false reality.

    So then by the same token we can conclude pollsters simply haven't polled Travis or myself. We can't conclude that they don't interview real people.

    Every day MILLIONS of kids in the Muslim world go to school. The 99.999x% of them come home without a single problem. A few misguided airstrikes here and there is paranoia. Good. I can't expect less from the human populace. However what we're discussing is what is the real chance of a drone air strike hitting a kid in any Muslim country. The truth is that it's negligible at best.

    Would you consider people to be part of their diet? No. In this sense, we can say that bears don't eat people.

    Is there any question that Jimmy Carter has either an agenda or is a loon?

    Now I will read the rest of the thread and probably have a good laugh at people that will defend one of the worst presidents we have ever had, showing their partisanship...

    Maybe he is sad that Obama is overtaking his crown as the Chamberlin of our times, and is trying desperately to make sure that his legacy of stupidity is carried on.

    Yes, Carter wasn't a good President. That doesn't invalidate his position on this. Especially if he has facts to back up what he is saying. Hell, it's at least worth an investigation.

    I don't regularly answer the phone. Again, if the premise is that pollsters don't interview real people because you or people you know haven't been polled by one, then by the same premise we can conclude that bears don't exist because neither you, I or anyone we has been eaten one. However, we know the world isn't so simple and bears do exist and they have eaten people even if you don't know any who have.

    Indeed, however, we do know where, increasingly, they pull their lists from. And there are plenty of folks like me who give bad data to every marketer we run across. I'm pretty sure some marketing companies now think I'm a red-headed 600lb lesbian with acne and shingles who votes straight dem ticket. Other marketers think I'm a white male with pattern baldness and a thing for trains who votes republican.

    I do get calls from the polling folks. The first thing I ask them is who they think I am. Their answer helps me to understand where they're getting their lists, their data from. But in any event, the me they're talking to is not the me their data says I am.
