    Curious how conservatives and the Moonie Wash Times look backward to justify the present. I wasn't hit with a meteorite last year so all is good with the world. That's why under conservative rule mankind stays in his cave.

    How, exactly, does the article he posted do that?

    Interestring how liberals -- those that claim to be 'thoughtful' and 'openminded' -- dismiss an article withouth even clicking on the link.

    FACTS! 'Strawman' would be a compliment, but I loved his last line, if only he would have stuck to it. Priceless.

    "We would all like our politicians, reporters, lawyers, and scientists to be totally pure in their motives — but, being human, many are not."

    Richard W. Rahn is the chairman of the Institute for Global Economic Growth - aka rob and steal em blind while polluting the earth.
