"What is the difference between a man and a parasite? A man builds. A parasite asks "Where is my share?" A man creates. A parasite says, "What will the neighbors think?" A man invents. A parasite says, "Watch out, or you might tread on the toes of god..."

Quoting a character based upon the writings of a woman is the perfect way to end... whatever that was. Well done.

German consumers pay a lot of money to subsidize big corporations and manufacturers of solar and energy-intensive manufacturing is being outsourced from Germany. Is that what you want for the US?

If you want to watch the scariest movie you'll ever see, then check out The Day After right now. It's a 30 year-old film about what would happen if the US and Russia nuked each other. The imagery and savagery are horrific -- not for the amazing visual effects, but that they are applied to innocent bystanders just living life at home.
