    I'm not afraid of it at all, but I sure as hell don't intend to put up with any growing threat in our society, and if it starts to become a problem, I hope our politicians have the balls to do something meaningful about it- not just talk a mean game.

    Personally? Not remotely. Like Lizzie though, I'm more concerned about keeping society safe and secure from those that would do it harm, I think it's absurd to pretend that because I am unlikely to be killed in a terrorist attack, I shouldn't care if anyone else is killed in a terrorist attack.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    I live in America, so no.

    Yes, it concerns me. Not when I am in the west, obviously. But when I am in muslim-majority countries it is definitely on my mind. If I ever took up contractor work, it would be a major concern.

    It doesn't keep me up at night. It could happen, I guess. Wrong place, wrong time kind of thing.

    No and I'm guessing if you asked the recent terror victims in France, they would probably have said no, as well. I will say, that in me, they'd have a fight on their hands since I'm usually armed.

    It's a well known fact that the explosive power of car bombs are neutralized by the presence of a side arm and adequate patriotism.
