  •  Not only that, but imagine a meteorite like 65 (5+ / 0-)

    million years ago.  An extinction event.  If we have a colony on the Moon and Mars, we live to see the Sun rise again.  If we stay here and try to make more livable only to have Mother Nature screw us big time, we become extinct.  I don't need to tell you where my vote goes.  I think Mars is a must.  I think the Moon is a must.  We've dinked around with the space station (waste of time and money).  We should be building colonies on the Moon by now and soon on Mars.  And the result would be everyone getting a Jetson car.  I want my Jetson car.  If we go like the rethugs want, we'll eventually need Flintstone cars, because at some point, we will run out of easy gas and oil, the only people driving will be Mitt and his pals at $1000/gal of gas.  I can't pay that, but G*d knows Mitt sure could.  OF course, by that time, unemployment will be $5,000 a week and broccoli will be $50 a bunch.
