This is one area...

... where some Liberty-minded people can drive me up a wall. The stay home and fix what you already have mentality is disturbing to me. I can just picture some of you protesting ship-building and sea explorers, the Mayflower, Lewis and Clark if you had lived in earlier ages. Hey, I'm all for wisdom and caution when it comes to developing and using technology (eg. the evils of Monsanto), but the neo-Luddite attitude of never embracing space as a possible safety valve for Liberty and civilization to survive (our Plymouth Plantation, if you will) is downright depressing. I'll stick with Jefferson and Franklin and their love of science and exploration and expeditions, thanks.
