    This is surely true, but what’s going to happen to those “fragile ecosystems” when climate change kicks into high gear?

    IMO this is a special form of NIMBY – or my particular special interest trumps the welfare of others. Sort of like how the rich guys on the east coast howled about some offshore wind farms because they would spoil the view/mess up the sailing/kill the little birdies.

    The ownership of e-voting machines doesn’t guarantee that the owners will receive their special blessings. IMO it’s more of a matter who has the best hackers in most places at the correct times.

    And on that note, I’m continuing to predict BHO remains in the White House.
