We Should Be Spending Billions Fighting Bathtubs, Not Terrorism. Quality Legislation: Every year, on average, 40 Europeans die in terrorist attacks. When you compare the policies and billions plown down into this number, you quickly discover that we should not be spending billions to fight terrorism, but to fight bathtubs. Over five times as many people drown in bathtubs every year.
To our surprise, we find that drowning in bathtubs kills over five times as many people as terrorism – 223 per year! We need to pull all the taxpayer billions from fighting terrorism immediately and put them to work against bathtubs. They are more than five times as dangerous as terrorism!
Even more, over six times as many die from falling off chairs – 254 people per year. We should be spending billions fighting chairs!
Worse still, 941 people per year die from falling out of beds – 941 people per year. That’s over twenty times as many as die from terrorism.

This article is written from a European perspective, but the situation in the US is even worse. The politicians in the Evil Empire used hysteria over terrorist attacks to not only spend far more money, but also slaughter over 100,000 people (so far) and bring about the final conversion of what was meant to be a constitutional republic into a totalitarian dictatorship where the ruler has absolute power to imprison, torture, or kill on a whim.
