But something tells me you won't need to tell people to stop reproducing.

But the bible says "Be fruitful and multiply" and a lot of ignorant people believe somebody else's mythology written 4000 years ago and rewritten in 1611 to suit the dogma of the day. And a lot of people can't keep it in their pants.

Don't forget the big corporations are the government. " The President is very much a figurehead - he wields no real power whatsoever. He is apparently chosen by the government, but the qualities he is required to display are not those of leadership but those of finely judged outrage. For this reason the President is always a controversial choice, always an infuriating but fascinating character. His job is not to wield power but to draw attention away from it."

The problem is we have a two party system, with two parties that are pretty much the same. We need a viable third, fourth, or even fifth party to shake things up a bit. Both parties know this and will do anything they can to crush a third party. The purpose of a political party is to take over the government. Disaster happens when one succeeds.

Have you ever noticed that the people who are always trying to tell you `there's a time for work and a time for play' never find the time for play?
