Life imitates Art

The U.S. spends over $400 billion every year in the military industrial complex, which is more than every other nation COMBINED.

Why are we making so many tools of war?

Why are we starting wars we don't need to fight?

Well, if you like war, then here's some GOOD NEWS!

More Robot Grunts Ready for Duty

That's right! Fully automated killing machines!


BTW, anybody see the "Terminator" movie series?

how about the "Matrix" trilogy?

Fiction? Not anymore.

As our "brilliant" government officials continue to roll out the red carpet for souless killing machines, we humans still haven't come to grips with WHAT IT MEANS TO BE HUMAN. Artificial Intelligence is in it's "insect" stage now, but in a century (or much less), A.I. will challenge the definitions for what it means to be "human".

I am reminded of an article I read in Scientific American magazine. The author was considering a computer program which answers questions by inventing and seeking questions related to the final answer. It was, in effect, a rough "thinking" machine. To make a long story short, the computer programmer asked it a kind of "ontological" question, and the computer responded by asking "Am I Human?"

So, for the sake of PROTECTING THE AMERICAN WAY OF LIFE, and with great sarcasm, I suggest that we Americans CONTINUE to manufacture the weapons of genocide, be they nuclear weapons, nanotech bacteria, radiological material, autmoated killing machines, and, perhaps the most important of all, THE EXCUSES FOR WAR!

May God bless us as we destroy ourselves!

I say we raise taxes and give the military ANOTHER $400 billion. There, now am I patriotic?
