Agree.

What is astounding is the UNACCOUNTABILITY.

I see politicians blaming 20 year olds, men blaming women, rich blaming poor and vice versa...I wasnt born in the Vietnam era but really, the climate right now must be similar, the MSM is nothing but divisive hate speech.

This is not the America our parents knew. Or wanted.

Glad you liked it. Pretty cool you got to see it in person. I thought the references to the future were interesting in the video too. Ya know like no more hunger due to the food from the ocean, and the ocean water being treated and used in desert locations to restore land. Nice ideas. But we do have plenty of cell phone towers and huge TV's.

Not on the same level, but when I was about that same age I got to go to the Chicago Auto Show, it was 65' or 66. My dad worked at the corporate offices of VW at that time. It was a pretty big deal for a kid that loved cars. Back when they didn't all look a like that is.

This is an is there really anything impossible thread. I don't believe anyone said anything against humanitarian aid. Starting wars or sticking our nose in telling the world our way is the only right way is different entirely. We pick when to have a conscience and when to not do much or anything, i.e. Darfour. There are other "despots" in power but what gives us the right to invade and take over their countries? I'd much rather seen the 860 billion spent on humanitarian aid rather than on the war in Iraq. Lets not get into this liberal versus conservative business, that belongs in the politics 101 forum.
