    of the fantasy landers who actually think time is on our side-- that we have fifty years to resolve the numerous rather large problems we face-- LOL, that's what the British Empire thought as well- just how well did that work out for them??

    Hm?

    •  The British Empire...uh huh... (6+ / 0-)

      You mean that empire born an island the size of Wyoming that had, for a time, been completely dependent on military control of the natural resources of a country on the other side of the world?  Yeah, that's a great analogy for a continental superpower with the 3rd largest population, 4th largest land area, vast diversity of resources and climates, and coastlines on three oceans.  I'm sure we'll become irrelevant any day now.

      Of course there is a "fierce urgency of now," but if you think there's some point where we should just give up, then I ask again - what the hell are you trying to accomplish other than come up with excuses for failure?
