Right now, i think it is probably being a liberal, i mean Mr Bush seems to disaprove of anyone that doesnt agree with him, why is that? maybe because he knows he is wrong, but is to scared to do anything about his mistakes maybe, sheesh what is this grade school?

Crab fishing, miners, the guys who build skyscrapers. I'm sure there are lots more. Pizza delivery might be dangerous because of the car accidents. The more driving you do the higher your risk. Also, delivering anything in bad neighborhoods is dangerous.

After cutting down trees and making firewood for over 15 years,I can say that crab fishermen have it worse than me. I can control and work safely due to safety practice and paying attention. Crab fishermen have to put up with weather and the unpredictability of the open ocean and wave action.
