I heard a scientist say that about how much farther society would be if not for the dark ages. A conservatives ultimate show. I get it. I know what he's saying. If we have seen things change so much in the last 50 years...what if we were 10x ahead by now? Visiting local star systems or Androids doing that for us?
Conservatism is not a mental illness. Stupidity is not an illness. Conservatism is like a lobotomy. The "cure" for mental illness-lol.
Oh well...a black president,electric cars- and some drive themselves, and the internet. Not bad considering the drag the Bush Family ( Like the Manson Family) put on the USA,and the world.
