[Paleopsych] why the next year is critical

Personally, I don't think that manned space flight
is a critical issue.  Even unmanned flight has a
dubious future.  

A growing network of fiberoptic cables will make 
communication satellites unnecessary, and I 
haven't seen any dramatic contributions to daily 
life arise from research done in space.

I do think our economy is deteriorating because
of outsourcing and an upward-tilted distribution
of income.  

I worked in a manufacturing company
for 10 years, and I think that people who don't
object to the export of manufacturing simply
don't know what is being lost.  

The contention that it is simply the jobs of the past 
that are going overseas is totally insane.  Any job 
that is not simply abolished is a job of the present
and of the future as well.

If people are going to wear shoes in the future,
then shoe-making is a job of the future.
