"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."

Somewhere To Send Them

At last the general feeling that most politicians are "not on this planet" may be more than wishful thinking.

Scientists have found water on the moon, raising the prospect of creating a sustainable lunar colony.

It also brings to mind those old sci-fi comics where the elite would destroy this world but hi-tail it in their rockets to another planet to begin all over again, leaving 'the small people' to their fate on Earth. Hmmm... if only we could get rid of them before they do too much damage here. Beam 'em up, Scottie.

  2. That puts paid to my theory of only the elite having access to inter-planetary travel then, OR :-)
