That's all Well and Good, until we dig too deep. Until we awaken The Sleeper. Until That Which Has No Name returns.....

Well, we have the technology to build the Orion spacecraft and begin to move out into the solar system and utilize its resources. We just don't have the will to do it. Nuclear pulse propulsion - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

On second thought we are better off not going into space. The last thing the martians want is Obamacare.

You're not obsessed with this whole "Obama" thing are you? Maybe just a little?

I guess you have plenty of company.

Just a little joke Ken. I've been carefully ignoring the news and political info sources for quite a while now. I have no idea on the current status of OC beyond knowing that the USSC is reviewing it.

That's good to hear. By November I'm sure we'll all be gut sick of it.

I was going to say:

"The reason Mars is a dead planet is that the former inhabitants couldn't afford healthcare."

I thought it was because they all ignored the Warnings from their Scientists and drove bigger and thirstier SUVs until the Global Warming destroyed everything.
