What if? We can go to “any” planet in the universe?

In the late 60’s.

there was talk about going to the moon and creating life there.another place to go (if not! getting away from what is going on down there aka earth!),

This could take much longer than expected. I think it’s because. We don’t really know! What is out there. This could cause problems. If we are not sure about “outer space” then we stand the risk of losing more than we want to gain. Knowing Vs. not knowing?

there is no such thing as a “sure thing” in this world or anywhere.

The last two space shuttles. That exploded. We still went up there. This is how we should be when exploring new worlds.

Columbus did!!!!!

FLYING CARS!

It’s one of those things. We read & heard in sci-fi books, magazines. about one-day actually owning a “FLYING CAR”

As kids! If you remember! A cartoon series called “the jetsons”  . Where flying cars via cartoon became real.

The “Real” question is? “Would we be as careful in the air? As we are not on the ground (as if?). In general! Drivers are dangerous on the ground, as they would be in the air!

YES!

It would be less crowded as per traffic. But! We have to share the airspace with others aka planes, choppers, and other fellow space travelers.

Which would generate even more problems in the air! As we current;y have on the ground!

I can see it now! Complaints! In the air! As on the ground!

With what we encounter here on the ground! We will!!!!!!! Encounter in the air! DUI/OVI’S & then some!

When we watched “The Jetsons!” It waa a very much a simpler life & time!

Are we really moving with the times?

WE HAD A LOT LESS PROBLEMS IN THE 60’S THAN TODAY!

HISTORY FROM 1960-1969

To me! The 60’s! We’re less traumatic. Than today.

We had our share of problems. But we lived through it.

The on’s that got to us were? JFK assassination, RFK, MLK, Bay of pigs. Of course! The war in Viet Nam. So on!

Where did we lose it? Just a guess! In no specific order.

The gas shortage (so-called?), disco, video games,  cabbage patch dolls, rap/hip-hop, PC. Unfortunately! The list is endless!

We did let ourselves be taken in by all of what went on. And did not know it! Things changed so fast for us.

We were happy! With what we had. We got lazy! By all of it.

And now? We all are paying for it! In more ways than one!

COULD THERE COME A TIME WHEN?

I can’t help but think. About the song 2525.That there might come a time when. May we see? Cars that have no need for the driver to take control of the wheel. The driver can give orders to do things. Or at the touch of a few buttons program it to drive to wherever.

In the 70’s! there was a national newspaper called “The national observer” In one of its last publications. It talked about having our own custom newspaper! Now! If it was talking about the printed newspaper? There is no way for that to happen!

If! It was talking about. A custom made the online newspaper? Then YES! that can happen. I think even to this day and way beyond. there will still be no way to avoid the ads.It would still need classified ads. Comics? Doubt it! Op-ed? To each their own! The cost? Someone has to pay for the technology!

Cable has lost its soul! As we all know it! There was a time when. Cable was diversified. Now! It’s a carbon copy of itself. Since people are cutting the cable! There is talk about cable m0ving to the internet. Would anyone pay? For crap online? I hope not!

Would we see? Anything like the cartoon “The Jetson’s”? I hope so!

In the meantime! we are “Lost in space!”
