What do people fear most?

Two magazines, Country Living (95.99% white

readership) and

Ebony/Jet (99.99% black readership) did surveys on

.....

'WHAT DO PEOPLE FEAR MOST?'

The results were interesting, to say the least..

Country Living magazine's top three answers were:

1. Nuclear war/terrorist attack in U.S.

2. Child/spouse dying/terminal illness.

3. Terminal illness/self.

Ebony/Jet magazine's top three answers were:

1. Ghosts

2. Dogs

3. Registered mail

No Kidding!

If they want equal treatment should they not have equal brains. I guess when they say ignorance is bliss they are not kidding. I guess while most of us worry about the important stuff, the rest can sweat the small things.

I would have to second

Amen...

This is the one thing that we have to worry about now with the idiot democrats in control of our nation.

So far, based on the new legislation that has come out of Washington D.C., our republic is holding but only by a thread. Any further decline and that thread will snap and we'll most certainly be the socialists states of America.

My fear

Leaving a police state for my son to grow up in and have to fight against. But I have hope. My rifle's name is Hope.

Your right Gunnin88

To many people have they heads in the sand and don't look to see what is happening until it is to late.

It should be reverse. The government should be terrified of getting on the bad side of the citizenry. It should not be the other way around.

Problem is...

Most people are afraid of the wrong things. People should be fearful of the government coming in and taking over the roll of our mothers in that they will take care of us our entire life from cradle to grave.
