    Why shouldn't we gut policing agencies, all of them. I think that would pressure the anti-gunners to suck it up. I don't need police & I have fire insurance & car insurance & jewelry insurance & liability, so why do I need government interfering with my life in those areas??

    When you think about it, the police & fire aren't working for us, they are working against us, and they are working for insurance companies. They steal my insured car, I can get a new one, that is why I pay insurance. But the police go to work for the insurance company to try and find it and the culprit. None of that helps me, yet I am the one who pays double for for it (insurance payments/taxes for police).

    I might give your opinion some consideration, but cocksuckers don't rate high on my list of intelligent respondents. Now toodle along and wipe your chin, imbecile.

    Shintao, if we had no fire departments we would also have no home insurance. And law and order is not a blessing from the Great Sky Father....without police, we'd have lawlessness in most parts of the country.

    I actually think without police and 911 people might take personal responsibility and arm themselves. I doubt there would be no fire insurance (we still have life ins. knowing people die). Fire departments generally get there to late anyway and watch it burn down while they tinkle a few drops on the blaze. In any event we don't know what either change would make, except lowering taxes and creating more responsibility in citizens.

    Are you actually capable of thought? I doubt it personally. But in case you are, what will happen to insurance rates in the absence of fire companies?

    Shintao, most structure fires are not arsons or accidents. They are begun by lightning or electrical shorts, etc. I dun know what huge abdication of personal responsibility you perceive...I sure don't.

    As for law and order, what you are proposing is a "Lord Of The Flies" society where the strong muscle the weak. As an older lady whose single daughter also lives alone, lemme tell you this appeals not at all.

    There are ways to cut waste in government -- mebbe even in fire and police protection. If you wish to discuss these, I'll be around.
