We are


a second rate nation.  Don’t like that?  Can’t face up to reality?  Voting for a ‘teapublican’ because you want your country back?

Well, think about my lede and consider this:

Chile and more Chile

Swiss Tunnel

Tunnel

We have become a nation of “Can’t Do”  Remember VP Cheney’s “1% Factor”?  If there was even one percent of some terrorist event happening, then we had to spend at all costs what ever it took to stop that last ‘one percent.’  Of course you do.  There was even a book written about it.

Well, the fear-mongers, ya know, the ones that want you to be afraid of your shadow, well they want you to be afraid of any DOUBT.  What, we may have a cost over-run?  That will never do.  What, it may take longer than projected?  That will never do.  What, it may be too big?  That will never do.  What it may not be big enough?  That will never do.

You get the point.  The Oregon Trail, the trans-continental railroad and the trip to the moon?  Never happened.  We were too timid to try.
