Heh. :) Ok but rememeber that this was just a passing
thought and not some researched theory into the inner
workings what the Bilderbergers are doing in Area 51.

Well goodie. These guys ought to be thinking about
baking ten more pies rather than scheming on how to
get the largest piece for themselves.

What exactly are "watermelons"? Is this some sort of
racial term? If you say that watermelons are as evil
as arch-conservatives, I don't know what the hell we
are talking about any more. I din't even mention the
word evil and I don't think that "arch-conservatives"
are evil. I just think they oppose what we as
transhumanists want to accomplish.

No, it matters a great deal who is holding the ball.
Transhumanity hasn't ever held the ball. The only rule
I want changed is the one that says, we can't play the
game. Because if we don't play, if we can't get the
ball, and if we can't score, then quite frankly I
think the "children of the corn" nazis will doom us to
the bibically prophesied Armageddon when really we
could rebuild Eden if we CHOOSE to.  

BTW I am curious why this, which was merely a
half-formed vague idea started such a long thread,
while the stuff I actually think about before I write,
I can't tell if anyone is even reading?
