Can such an application of science be successful? Is a militarized space inevitable, necessary or impossible?

  • Asks - what happened to 'The Church' .. shouldn't the safety and survial of mankind be their first priority!
  • Says father Bush, at least did do things to improve nuclear safety, recalls her listening to Bush (Yale) at the kid's graduation ... she rates him lower than Reagan .. says Cheney is actually the President .. says BushW would not have the sense to determine not to push the button to nuke the world .... says another of the Bush clicke is a psychopath ... says there's a real problem with 'men's minds' .. she'd run a clinic for them!
