Apollo 4 on column of fire


Randi Rhodes is getting calls from willfully ignorant wackos today, regarding global energy trapping. Poor Randi! Though she’s keeping her cool despite the two-way screaming. And despite the growing excess (relative to conditions under which humans evolved) of hurricane-making kinetic energy in this world.

My prediction

I predict that Barack Obama will be regarded by history as a healthcare reform ‘genius’, who felt from the start approximately what he could achieve, and then set up a starting bargaining position that he could trade down from, while carefully avoiding telling lies about his intentions. He carefully avoided promising to deliver that which he used as a bargaining chip.

My response to objections from Brent Budowsky, who has seemed to think Obama could achieve dreams if he came out strongly for whatever Brent Budowsky liked, and gave the kind of speeches that made a fool of so many people, might be to tell Brent that we didn’t go to the moon because JFK gave a speech. Rather, and of course speaking roughly, JFK gave a speech because the United States was going to land guys on the moon if it could. The time was right.
