National Healthcare in the year 2274...

"In the year 2274...the survivors of war, overpopulation and pollution are living in a great domed city, sealed away from the forgotten world outside. Here, in an ecologically balanced world, mankind lives only for pleasure, freed by the servo-mechanisms which provide everything. There's just one catch: Life must end at thirty unless reborn in the fiery ritual of Carrousel."

A positive thought...

They repealed prohibition, didn't they?

Just a reminder that foolishness can be undone if necessary. Like, say, Sarbanes Oxley, Cap and Trade, Cash for Clunkers, Nationalized Healthcare, Social Security...

I'm just saying that our constitution (at least for the moment) lets us slap our collective foreheads and say "what were we thinking?"

Keep smiling!

State of the Union

I feel like an ant in a country that's gone grasshoppers.
