    Re: Your Greatest Fear

    All of the above, but, our government is "under-extending".
    Lets bring back the 90% tax rate on those earning more than 100K !
    And, in the mood for progressing, lets repeal the 2nd amendment !
    It takes not a genius to conclude that tea bagging conservatives are dominating this poll.

    If you have a specific fear that is not listed, please post it.
    I fear the continued consolidation of power by the authoritarian creeps who want to take our property and control every aspect of our lives.

    And, this would not be a problem, if only man could behave himself and act toward others with respect and tolerance.

    Besides a brutal death, prison would be awful.

    Camel spiders. Look them up. They're in the scorpion family, can jump and are so fast. I saw one the size of a small cat in afghanistan.
    That must have been one tiny ass cat.

    I spit at lots of people through my computer screen. Not only does it "teach them a lesson" but it keeps the screen clean and shiny.
