And when he passed away one day insurance was denied,
for since they claim he never lived,
they say he never died...

Don't take a shower - you might fall.
Don't drive-------------- you might have a wreck.
Don't eat-----------------you might choke.
Don't blah, blah, blah.........don't live ? If you are too stupid to have a working smoke detector and a few other basic things, and you go around water not knowing how to swim.....etc. then maybe the gene pool needs to be thinned anyway.
To those of you who advise people to buy guns for safety:
If you buy a gun, please consider a gun safety course by the NRA or your local gun club.
Because in an article in Stars & Stripe a few years ago, the U.S.Army said that the NRA had the BEST gun safety course in the entire country. Some boot camps would even bring in the NRA to train their soldiers in gun safety.

A hands free Bluetooth or other items aren't as effective as you may think because your brain is still distracted by the conservation and not paying attention to the road.
Shut up and drive or pull over and chat.
Maybe a gun to provide your own help? Nah, guns are bad. Obama told me so.

[BRIEFING.COM] The major averages spent the entire session in a steady downtrend, but despite persistent selling pressure, today's losses were limited in scope. The Dow, S&P 500, and Nasdaq shed between 0.2% and 0.3% while the Russell 2000 lagged, falling 0.9%.
