We put a man on the moon, why can't we clean up the Gulf? Or Live Forever?

Why can't we clean up the gulf then? Because eternal life and cleaning up the gulf make putting a man on the moon relative child's play by comparison, that's why.
Yahoo News/Associated Press - " 'We're a superpower — the United States,' New Orleans chef and sometime fishing guide Eric Schutzman said recently as he took a break from carving up a batch of black drum and redfish caught in an unclosed section of Black Bay. 'We put a man on the moon. You'd think we'd have enough brilliant minds to get it all cleaned up and get on with it.' "
Yes, Eric Schutzman, and if I had a penny for every time that tired remark was made, maybe I'd pay to clean it up myself. Or go back to the moon.

Have you ever noticed, Eric, that our directionless bureaucracy stopped going to the moon and hasn't gone back? Or to Mars? Perhaps we should chalk that achievement up to the old adage that even a blind pig finds an acorn once in a while.   Perhaps that means the Russians will get there last.  It's their proverb.

Counting on Government duplicating such an achievement is a lot like counting on winning the lottery twice. I hear it happens, but it doesn't happen that often.

I hear Government is now trying to provide us with eternal life. It's called ObamaCare. How's that working out for you?
