it would appear that we are scheduled to HAVE A DATE WITH AN ASTEROID.
the big event should take place on feb 15 and the asteroid is about the size of a football field. large enough create a good sized crater but not large enough to plunge us into an ice age or pose a threat to israel. perhaps kim jong un will proclaim that he built, launched and set the guidance system to narrowly miss the united states just as a warning. he does seem to be flexing his muscles these days.
my question is why in the world is there no talk of blasting this rogue asteroid to smithereens. you would think we should test our equipment on a non planetary threatening asteroid just to be ready for the big one. it would make for tremendous theater. imagine sitting in your adirondack chair with a beer and a smoke with some nice music playing and getting ready to watch the explosion of a life time. at the very least there should be some serious discussion on whether or not to teach this feckin dirt ball from outer space a lesson as a deterrent to future nogoodnik pieces of space debris.
it's time like this that the world needs someone whom is not afraid to think big. who you gonna call? newt gringrich, that's who!
i love you sons of bitches.
