Close, but people who use public infrastructure and paid for it should bethe ones who are allowed to vote. The contractors who built it though - no, that would be a conflict of interest.

We haven't been victims of an unprovoked attack in 200 years. Now that we are being attacked by waves of mestizos the army is not defending us one whit.

His first wife Lynne Margolis was the one with the real brains. I totally concur that "consciousness" is an emergent phenomenon first demonstrated by the simplest organisms that first reacted to light or chemicals in their environment. Self-awareness is a matter of degree and not an either/or proposition.
