We need to put less money into these weapons of mass destruction and more into our schools.
By which of course, I mean Jedi Academies.
But what happens when one of the Padawans or a mentally deficient Jedi turns to the dark side and goes on an academy killing spree? Think man, we need to post Stormtroopers at every academy and arm all of our teachers with Lightsabers.
Nope, the correct solution is to see to it that only government agents that are sent out to break into Jedis' homes and kill them if they're suspected of smoking a magic plant have light sabers. That way any academy killing sprees will be perfectly legal/moral. :)
One of the things Newt Gingrich (one of the people that was in the running during Republican primaries) was criticized/made fun of for was his proposal for the US to establish a moon base. While it does sound outlandish, it's actually something that's very possible technologically, just probably not very economy-friendly. =P
While I think a moon base is a fascinating idea for both the astronomical research and the beginning of a plan B for colonizing other astronomical bodies, I have to wonder why
Gingrich wanted it. Something tells me he doesn't care about any of those things. Maybe he thought we could use the moon base to drop a nuke on Russia or Iran or something. I think the guy may still be stuck in the Cold War.
