    amazing how wrong those visionaries were.
    If we were not as concerned with making money and war we might be there.

    And how would these big technological advances exist if we weren't concerned with making money? Do you think these discoveries are made for free?

    You will never understand what I am talking about.
    The flying cars will be Chinese made anyway.

    Did Henry Ford receive tax payer grant money to manufacture the automobile? What about the Wright Brothers?
