In the cold vacuum of space, a rover begins its mission of curiosity and discovery.

With abundant evidence of speech, scientists posit they may find life in this inhospitable terrain.

The massive red planet contains life of sorts-- and the rover's Bile Spectrometers indicate increasing eruptions of casino cash to come.

On this strange planet, over thirty-six million in billionaire-dollars is the equivalent of three-hundred-and-ten dollars spent by an average American family on earth.

In this gravity, one-hundred million is petty cash.

Indeed, there are other planets nearby, captivated by the pull of the massive Scalia at the center of this solar system.

The great dome of Karl Majora orbits the Scalia, bound by the forces of Citizens United.

But of even greater mass, another red planet is larger than all blue planets combined.  

Yet the craft continues on its mission:  the quest to find life behind the massive fields of dark matter that dwarf all other planets.

Red dark matter still outweighs blue, and the search for identifiable life is based soley on light and sound waves of political advertisements emanating from the darkness.

True, science posits:  where there is speech, there is life.

Yet that remains to be seen, and a quest for all humanity . . . continues.

Geoffery?  Sheldon?  David?  Charles?  Are you there?  Hello?  Hello.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
