Tally one vote for overpopulated corners of the world (India and China, I'm looking at you) running out of resources and decending into a Malthusian wonderland of war and disease.

I think that if the US keeps getting worthless politicians running the country instead of real people, as the government was originally set up for, the people would eventually rise up against it.
Now, if I can say that with a backwoods Montana accent or a straight face, somebody should hurt me.
When life itself seems lunatic, who knows where madness lies? To surrender dreams - -this may be madness; to seek treasure where there is only trash. Too much sanity may be madness! But maddest of all - -to see life as it is and not as it should be.
