My sister is one of those people who has a misunderstanding of risk.

I used to get messages monthly about some minuscule risk.

She has one of those wallets that is supposed to ward off electronic signals so they don't get her credit card numbers while she is walking down the street.

But she gives her card to waiters in restaurants all the time.

I went to Best Buy. They had Samsungs, LGs, but not a single Stalinist TV in sight. Seems with all those Dems running around with their government welfare money, they can't keep them in stock.

As Roger Daltrey put it, say it ain't so. Joe please, say it ain't sooo!

We have before discussed the very poor understanding of risk that people have.

They are deathly afraid of letting their kid walk somewhere alone, given the 1 in 200 zillion chance that they will be abducted. Yet without a second thought, they routinely put them in a car and drive somewhere, with a higher risk that they will be killed in an accident.

Or the incalculably small risk that a piece of Halloween candy will have been maliciously handled prior to their kid eating it, compared to the very real risk of them being smooshed by a car while running between houses.

the Democrats Stalinist media lies 24/7. the more they scare the hell out of people the more they sit in front of the TV and allow themselves to be brainwashed by the Stalinist lies. ,The TV says eat pure fat its healthy for you and look at how fat everyone is..and all these people do is sit in front of the TV because they are to fat to move.

The stranger kidnapping stopped with the various three strikes laws finally keeping the rapists behind bars for life instead of letting them back on the street to kidnap and rape little girls over and over again. But the TV lies so the parents of today keep their kids inside sitting them in front of the Stalinist TV all their childhoods being brainwashed with the lies.

This is the divide in American Democrats only know what the TV tells them and they vote for whomever the TV tells them to vote for. Republicans dont watch much TV and vote for freedom.

Yes,

There are a lot of examples other than Amber Alerts.

The whole "It bleeds, it leads" mindset of the media fosters the perception that the world is much more dangerous.

While we have historically low levels of crime.

Teenage pregnancy is another one. Again, historically low teen pregnancy rates, but to hear tell, all teens are getting pregnant...

JW if Amber Alerts contribute to the misconception that the world is becoming more and more dangerous for our children. (I am not in any way demeaning their value in finding abducted or lost children).

Consider the following:

1. Due to the nature of their broadcast and social media, many of us hear about every stinkin' Amber alert everywhere in North America.

2. The great majority of Amber alerts do not involve anyone menacing or even a dangerous situation. Most of them are cases where a kid isn't where their parents think they are (a friend's house, runaway with a boyfriend, etc).

3. We rarely learn the outcome of Amber alerts. Usually, it's just that the kid "has been found", which might mean they simply came home, or returned their parent's text messages, as opposed to being located by police at a truck stop hundreds of miles from home.

In other words, some little snot in Oregon is mad at her parents, goes to a friend's house, doesn't answer her phone and BAM - Amber alert, the whole world hears about it. 30 years ago we would simply never hear about something like this.

Recently there was one where it turned out that the kid was in her room with headphones in and her parents didn't even know.
