I've never even seen one of those chicken places, so I feel pretty safe.

As someone who has had ticker problems this year I can honestly say nobody made me go to McDonald's or Burger King or any other fast/junk food place. It was 100% my choice even though I knew it was poison to my body. Terrorism ain't my choice.

Someone tried to catch me on this earlier but the used Mcy D's instead of Chick-fil-a. Since the question obviously wants me to pick terrorism i picked the fast food.

I don't get how chik-fil can cause death... What are they putting needles and poison in the chicken? Lol, food doesn't kill people, unhealthy lifestyles do.

Stiletto, this poll is incorrect. Heart disease is more complex than, "Eating fast food causes death from heart disease." Sure, it's one factor, but only one of many. Also, not all fast food is unhealthy. It all depends on your choices.

So, when you point to that chart, "number of deaths from heart disease" is NOT equal to "deaths from fast food."

Grandma's right. I just ate a burger with portabellas browned in butter in my very own kitchen, so I probably can't blame that on fast food or ChikFilA. And it was delicious.

Fast "food" is a multi-billion dollar business. Clearly it has an effect on the expanding waist lines of Americans.

Kentucky Fried Chicken wouldn't fit :)

Chick fil a, but there is a difference between the 2. With terrorists you don't have a choice of dying. With chic fil a or any fast food, no one is forcing you to eat it.

so the few hundred deaths caused by terrorism in America since 9/11 are somehow worse than the over half a million deaths caused by heart disease each year? Not to be contrary. I'm just curious

Different. More violent. I'm just saying that shouldn't be a comparison. Now mcdonalds vs chic fil a would be better. Of course unhealthy eating kills more.

the way some of the more hysterical members of SoH talk, you'd think the terrorists were right outside their windows just waiting to strike

Stiletto, I agree with you about that. People overhype the danger of terrorism.

But, as I said above, the premise of the poll is not honest.

No, that's incorrect.


It'd be dishonest if the premise wasn't outlined in the very first set of comments.

Id say terrorism. The Syrian government are terrorists, there are terrorists bombing cars all the time in Iraq. Never even seen a chick fil a before but I'm sure it's bad for you. But I can guarantee, terrorism is worse

It also depends on what you wanna call a terrorist. If you are talking Islamic terrorists id say it's just an ignorant generalization to automatically assume terrorism is Islamic. It's my choice to eat chick fil a. It's NOT my choice to be...

Oh, I thought you meant Chick Fil A all by itself. Just specify heart disease or something in the future

Like I said, you should have specified heart disease, not chick fil a. Chick Fil A couldn't kill more people than terrorism because I have never even seen one, nor heard of it until now!

Luke, you are right. You should expect to answer a poll, as asked - not by "I really meant xyz."

Sorry I didn't realize this wasn't an actual poll but instead a forum to roast people who fear terrorism as more of a global threat than Chick Fil A

Terrorism is murder, and fast food tastes good and one has a choice about it.

heart disease being the leading cause of death and therefore practically exponentially more dangerous than terrorists doesn't bother you?

I'm with Jackie on this one. I have a choice whether or not to eat healthy or fast food. Call it slow suicide, call it shortening the time you wait for death, call it a bad idea. Ultimately, terrorism doesn't give the victims a choice.

That wasn't the nature of the question though.

I realize conservatives sometimes have a tendency to redirect polls to answer questions that weren't asked ;)

In this case though, it was simply a question about which is responsible for more deaths.

that observation is correct, as those who fear-monger about the "threat" of terrorism also clearly have an agenda obviously

I think there is a lot of under reporting of terrorism. And not so many fast food joints in the third world

for the purposes of this poll, Chick-Fil-A is representative of what happens when people eat fast food on a regular basis.
