Anybody see Google’s little cartoon today? Its kinda cute...I’m seriously considering staying up and finding the link to watch.

It’s incredible to me that we can plan, design, engineer, fund, maintain, “talk” to our probes and satellites & space station, but somehow...

our infrastructure is crumbling, untold trillions wasted on liberal/fascist govt programs “to help the people”. And a good many of our city’s are wastelands. Shame.
