    Missile Defense

Technology has always found its greatest consumer in a nation's war and defense efforts. Since the last attempts at a "Star Wars" defense system, has technology changed considerably enough to make the latest Missile Defense initiatives more successful? Can such an application of science be successful? Is a militarized space inevitable, necessary or impossible?

Friedman has an excellent column today regarding the need for the Arab world to 'have an economy', were there such, then the youths who currently vilify the west, would be happily engaged and occupied.

On economies ALL economies are MIXED!

The world's small

Life's short

It's important to

Burrow under the Label

to get beyond prejudice

to have empathy and 'love' for others

to enjoy people

to value people

and for those in leadership roles to use their 'clout' to good purpose.


If something 'bad' happens to a person, they go on to talk about and tell lots of people - bad press.

If something 'good' happens to a person, they might not broadcast it, but, they will function and grow and achieve.

...if aliens do arrive, hostile or not, no doubt Robert and lchic will be able to direct them in the proper way to organize the world. :-)

From Rshow's point of view, since he believes you're Condoleeza Rice, you just tossed him a juicy bone in the form of of an ambassador portfolio to Their Majesties, The Aliens!!! From now on YOU will be his rising Star...even as lchic sinks below the horizon.

"Wouldn't it be dreadful to live in a country where they didn't have tea?" Noel Coward

Everything Stops for Tea especially when a duststorm's passing over.

Interesting how Bush Dis-information hacks 'sit' on the threads of The Guardian and The New York Times ... how they are paid from the public purse to monitor, read and watch for every post put up by Showalter. Prooving the point that Showalter does have important cultural contributions to offer.

The amazing part is, they tab, track and harass ... and yet .... can't get themselves sufficiently together to drop Showalter that note in writing that frees him to move on, and lay out his important contributions to society.

I think Robert does need to get a job.

Showalter is the hardest working guy in America! An Original Thinker - thinking for himself, the Nation and International stability!

He'd be very happy to get 'that note' from the CIA to free and enable him to move on with his important and unique scientific work.

Does anyone ever wonder how many Americans are stunted in their life plan by an aspect of government that won't face up to its responsibility?
