    Only problem I see in this is that this country won't make it to 2083. The thumpers will have destroyed it and themselves.

    No, the thumpers will last for many more decades, and have a good chance of winning in the US. And we even have them here on RJ. I'll bet you can name them...

    I saw this earlier and thought it was hilarious. I find many of the articles in the Onion to be hilarious. One I read recently talked about a college being chosen as the dinner party capital of the country and I could not stop laughing.

    History... is, indeed, little more than the register of the 'crimes, follies, and misfortunes' of mankind. But what experience and history teach is this - that peoples and governments have never learned anything from history, or acted on principles deduced from it. ~Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel, The Philosophy of History, "Introduction," 1807
