Doom and Gloom that darn Doomsday Clock!

Noam Chomsky: The Doomsday Clock Is Nearing Midnight

 Every decade has its own doom and gloom crowd and this decade it's all about the weather or all about the money because money is the root of all evil conspiracies. Make a buck, make a buck. All you need is a good Doom and Gloom idea that can stick to the wall like well-done spaghetti. And you can start that clock up again. I was little boy back in the early Sixties and that doomsday clock was practically where it is now fifty-some years later. Teachers had us hiding under our desks every other week in preparation for an atomic bomb dropped on top of our school or city. Scared the crap out of all of us children. Not that many if any of us knew what the hell an atomic bomb was. And I'm sure those wood desks were great protection for us in the event of a nuclear attack. Perhaps they need to look into buying a new Doomsday clock for each new generation of Chicken Littles.
