    Once unintended consequences are experienced, I suspect there will be a different opinion on a number of these topics.

    More likely, a huge unforseen event will push these items off the agenda entirely.

    What I find interesting is that almost everyone has a strong opinion about every topic under the sun. Apparently nobody has anything left to learn. They already know everything.

    From my understanding of the word “opinion”, someone can have an opinion on a topic while at the same time having very little (or no) factual knowledge of that topic……… only that it exists. Opinion: a view, belief, or idea about something.

    @theexpertisin Once the unintended consequences of inaction are experienced, I suspect there will also be a very different opinion, but technology is not going to save our hides eventually unless acknowledge we have a problem and start discovering solutions. But waiting for Godot to do it is not the answer.

    It looks like USA Today readers are much more intelligent than the buffoons they elect to Congress. We need a political system that gives us more than a choice between grafters and troglodytes.

    Pollsters tell us what the poorly educated and logic-challenged masses are thinking. Every poll should disclose the average intelligence of the responders by including a short test on general knowledge. If this was done, I suspect the public would pay far less attention to polls.
