The thing to understand, is that Andres Serano did not get a grant to create Piss Christ, he won an award and the show that gave him that award was in part funded by the NEA. That is very different than giving him the money to create Piss Christ, as it is almost always portrayed.

The IRA is a good point but you should not have listed only the number of bombings you should have the number of fatalities as well. The total number of bombings sounds much worse than the total number of fatalities, for a 40+ year conflict. I don't know the true number but I have seen accounts that put the deaths at somewhere between 1700 - 1800 over 40 years, 911 was 2900 in one day.

As an AC you have no credibility so why even post? you can make all the claims you want and never have to back them up.

Question, since you mention software in vehicles that makes them safer, did you invent the safety or merely steal it from the years of research on vehicle safety and then write software to bring that data together in a "nifty" way? I don't disagree that there was hard work involved in writing the software and that there is value in hard work. In the end, is it that you created the "nifty" way and the customers are actually buying the safety which you are taking credit for or you created the safety and the software is the best way to sell it.
