    The enormous possibilities inherent in the extension of that method, especially to governmental problems, has already apparently been grasped by Mr. Hoover as by no man who has heretofore presided over our national destinies, and I anticipate great advances for moving in the directions in which he is now leading.

    In 2091, a Bush or a Clinton will be running for President.

    Let's see

    We'll all be suffering because of global warming and millions will have died because of coastal flooding

    Bird flu and swine flu will kill millions more

    Let's not forget cigarettes will kill millions and

    Coca cola and McDonald's will kill the rest

    In short we'll all be dead so live it up while you can.

    Here's mine:

    By 2091 my grandchildren will be grandparents and their children will speak Spanglish, which will have become a formalized language by the middle of the 21st Century. The work week will be shortened to 30 hours and the usual business hours will be from six in the morning until six in the evening, Monday through Saturday.
    By 2050 all roofs in the sun belt will be solar collectors and more than half of our energy needs will be produced by solar, wind, wave, nuclear and geo-thermal sources; hydrogen production will become the fuel of the future as more efficient and less costly methods are developed, allowing the oceans to be mined. A by-product of this process will provide clean salt-free water for drinking and agriculture.
    High speed rail will connect North and South America, powered by electric engines, the electricity produced by burning hydrogen.
    Clean fresh water will be channeled to the arid desserts of the world along with compost to make fertile long dead soils. Food production will increase 100-fold by the last decade of the 21st Century and famine will be a thing of the past.
    Sadly, human nature will not change, it will remain the greatest source of discontent and harm for our children's children. Bigotry and envy, Greed and sloth, lust and gluttony and anger will not be extinguished by material goods, safe and warm shelter, sufficient food or more free time.
    Many of those who pretend to offer council will continue to posit their way is the only way, and their Supreme Being is the only one and true source of goodness - and in this way continue to divide the people. Mistrust fed by bigory and lust, greed and gluttony will be exploited by the leaders of the worlds religions who themselves suffer from pride and a lust for power.
    Even as man begins to explore the planets, and science provides solutions to age old problems, man's fear of the dark will remain his one fatal flaw.
