Does the man look poor! Or oppressed?
Have I ever done anything to him that would inspire him to attack?
Could we run away?
What does my wife think?
What about the kids?
Could I possibly swing the gun like a club and knock the knife out of his hand?
What does the law say about this situation?
What do the European courts say about this situation?
Does the Glock have appropriate safety built into it?
Why am I carrying a loaded gun anyway, and what kind of message does this send to society and to my children?
Is it possible he'd be happy with just killing me?
Does he definitely want to kill me, or would he be content just to wound me?
If I were to grab his knees and hold on, could my family get away while he was stabbing me?
Should I call 9-1-1?
Why is this street so deserted?
We need to raise taxes, have a paint and weed day and make this a happier, healthier street that would discourage such behavior.
This is all so confusing! I need to debate this with some friends for few a days and try to come to a consensus.

Daughter: "Nice grouping, Daddy! Were those the Winchester Silver Tips or Hollow Points?
Son: Can I shoot the next one!
Wife: You ain't taking that to the Taxidermist!
On about August 17th, when Ed went to Crawford, Texas to witness the Cindy Shehan protest he remarked that he was "Deep in the heart of Dixie". Dixie? The heart of Dixie??? So I guess that Oklahoma and New Mexico are part of Dixie too since they are right next to Texas. He also repeated that remark the next day so apparently it was not a mistake, in his mind at least. I wonder if Alabamans also consider Texas to be the heart of Dixie. Pretty funny.
On August 24th, Ed commented that he didn't speak Cuban.
But getting down to some real issues, in late July, I loved his analysis of the "Private Accounts" proposal. He said:
"When you go to Las Vegas" .... [WHOA, wait a minute, when you are thinking retirement, Las Vegas is not the same thing as the stock market] .... "you don't go there hoping to win 2%, you want to at least double your money"
Yikes, the stock market is a game of craps? With good mutual funds, we hope to average 6-12% per year and avoid massive down years (like investing in internet stocks back in the late 1990s). I understand that Social Security earns about 1% per year. So what will it be? 6% per year or 1% per year? It doesn't sound like much on a one year basis but over the course of your working career, it means hundreds of thousands more to you.
