How many medals would UF have?

Lol AJC is hyping UGA up and trying to pretend UF isn't better at the Olympics too.

If UGA were a country, we'd have as many medals as Germany and France (8)

I've been gone for a while. I almost forgot about the rampant right-wing nuttiness around here.

No idea. Despite its many faults, the war on terror has likely produced some positives, i.e. disrupting the infrastructures that would allow large, coordinated attacks. My point was, in 2016, the data don't justify the inordinate fear in the population.  I'm certainly not saying we should ignore the problem.  Let's just keep it in context.

Too bad that article is from a year ago, so it doesn't count San Bernadino, Orlando unlike the data does itself from the article http://securitydata....ly-attacks.html

Violent Jihadists: 98
White Extremists: 48

The numbers would get a lot worse if we looked at europe as well. I wonder if Time will do a new article since the data has changed? Probably not because the data they used doesn't fit their narrative any longer. Not to mention the premise of the data is sort of stupid, it's pretty convenient to discard the thousands that died thanks to 9/11

It's called statistical analysis and remembering that we are living in a post 9/11 world. The fear of Islamic terrorism is way overblown for political purposes. People are dumb for falling for it. You're more likely to die walking on a sidewalk or moving a refrigerator. Politicians love it when people are irrationally afraid.
