Now I'm wondering if I should stop playing the Mega-Million lotto. I'm thinking that if I were to win, the danger would come to me, no matter where I happen to be. Would I become a prisoner in my own fortress? It's almost like I'm paying too much for a problem which will probably not happen in my lifetime.

Can’t wait for the bulletins suggesting we avoid many areas of our largest cities. Stay to the “nice” parts of the cities and you’ll be fine. The same is true of Mexico.

Nope you can't say that, politically incorrect you know.

People will hear what they want to hear. People still visit war torn countries in spite of the fact they know its dangerous. One persons idea of risk, is another person idea of fun. To each their own.

Maybe we should tell the Sun that there's a level 2 travel advisory for the UK as well.

I wonder if the drug companies would try to sell on any newscast that listed the number of people that went into Kansas City or Chicago and did not get shot...

I wonder if the State Deparment issues a travel advisory for the United States of America, you go to Walmart you get shot, go to church get shot, go to McDonalds get shot, send kids to school they get shot, drive under an over pass and wonder if today you catch a rock droped from the over pass, or maybe the road rage idiot next to you will open fire on you because you looked at him, or maybe you are at a picnic at the park and you catch a bullet from the drive by? Or participate in a drive by shooting sitting in your living room?

In Mexico the narcos shoot other narcos for the territory, in the US inocents are shot for no reason at all, how do you fearmongers explain that?

That's why I don't go to California or Illinois. Dangerous country out there. There was a shooting in my hometown last evening. McAllen, Texas which is about ten miles from the border is one of the safest cities in the United States.


Depends on which part of California we're talking about. California's a big state

Other countries have travel advisories for the United States of America. Where can we hide. We live 2 miles from the Mexico Border. Significantly safer than many USA cities.

It was a joke. Sorry that you didn't get it. Both great states have their safe as well as dangerous areas. Painting an entire country or state with fear is too common today.
