The world is a dangerous place. :-) And that’s just the way it is.

The world is a dangerous place. 🙂 And that’s just the way it is. Nothing would ever be able to change that fact. You can spend as much money as you want on ammo, guns, orbital defense systems, whatever. . . . You are never as safe as you might like to be. So just get used to it and move on with life. 🙂

I’m sorry there are people who feel differently than you do, Marco Rubio. I’m sorry that you, supposedly, for now, unless you are a white-male-capitalist-oligarch, have to respect their feelings and rights and speech. I’m sorry that you even have to countenance them.
