With more than 7 billion people on the planet that means there are as many as 70,000,000...

Operation Freedom Gone Wrong

Operation Freedom Gone Wrong Update : On September 25, President Obama announced an Executive Order to crack down on government contractors that have been accused of human trafficking. The executive order is a major step toward preventing human trafficking by contractors, but it doesn’t go far enough.

Out of 6 billion people there are only 70 million psychopaths? Out of all these people, there's probably 70 million SANE people the way things are going these days. Right now, nobody's working with a full deck. A few of us just do a fairly good job of keeping it in check. In America right now, there are probably more guns than there are people, aimed and cocked and ready to fire.
