Comment The real reason for the Electoral College... (Score 1) 1425

to prevent one LARGE state... say California from voting 80% for one candidate (almost true) and tipping the election for the nation. The electoral college is designed to give the states the proportional voice that they have in the combined congress. The fact that Obama complains about WY having a greater voice then CA is hogwash and shows how little he understands our constitution..

Comment Fragile Planet? (Score 1) 522

"I don't think we will survive another 1000 years without escaping beyond our fragile planet." What...? escape to a stable non-threatening environment like Mars, Europa or an Asteroid ? I think the Earth (which has gone through ice ages as recently as 50,000 years ago) and was very much warmer for most of its 4 billion year of existence... is much less fragile than you think.

Comment Let's do what the Chinese Communist Gov Says.... (Score 1) 742

Great idea. Can we give them more technology and help them with their military too ? How about we allow them to ignore the climate change accords while we kill off our energy production too. Maybe let them manipulate their currency and buy influence in the west. Let them buy US industry... in ways we could never reciprocate in their country... yes... let's all do what China wants...
