Hi Stephen P. King 

I am tempted to say that the best solution is for
congress to shut down for a year.

Dear Roger, 

No, All that is different between them is where their respective utopias 
lie. Liberals yearn for a future utopia on Earth, conservatives pine 
over their utopia in the past. 

I would agree with that, but the thing is, the former may or may not be 
possible but the latter is certainly impossible. What is there better to do 
than to try to push civilization in the direction of a future utopia? What 
could be more destructive and foolish than to try to undo what has happened and 
put future back in a box?


Hi Craig,

    How about we drop the entire idea of utopias and work together to solve the 
problems that we have with the tools that we know work (as they have worked 
before in similar situations). "Those that do not learn from history are doomed 
to repeat its mistakes" or some such...
