The FULL MOVIE is on YouTube!
I had seen it in 2006 — when it first came on. It was on DISH this last weekend and I DVRed it and watched it a couple of nights ago.
Wow. Wow. WOW!
It was like a TIME WARP. It could so easily have been June of 2016.
We are still talking about the SAME ISSUES: the DIVIDES — racial, wealth, hispanics-blacks, voter suppression, ‘right to work’, vote-rigging and voting machines.
Scary. IF you are into politics you really should watch this (again).
Makes you THINK — which is always a good thing.
Where would we be, where would the World be, IF just one of the Kennedy brothers had been spared?
The ONLY thing that this movie did not presage was that there would be an Obama exactly 40 years later.

Come ON! This is just straight old Soviet Union-like propaganda. NASA trying to drum up some publicity in case Trump decides to chop its budget.
Why am I being so NEGATIVE about this new discovery and these 7 new Exoplanets.
Very simple. Because it means NOTHING. So what?
There have to be BILLIONS & BILLIONS, more likely TRILLIONS & TRILLIONS Exoplanets in the Universe. Simple as that.
That we found 7, 40 Light Years away means diddly. Just means that is as far as our CURRENT technology let us get.
We already know of and have catalogued upwards of 3,560 Exoplanets. So 7 new ones, however much they may look like Earth isn’t that exciting.
Plus, 40 Light Years is way, way, way too far.
The furthest we have managed to get, since the start of the Space Age 60 years ago, is 1.6 Light Days. Yes, 1.6 Lights Days. We have to go 228 times further to make that 1 Light Year.
So we have managed 1.6 Light Days in 40 years. So at this rate, assuming speed stays the same, it will take us 9,120 YEARS to complete 1 Light Year.
So, we are talking crazy distances, crazy timeframes.
MORE THAN LIKELY there is other life out there.
To always assume that this other life HAS to have the same requirements of Oxygen, water etc. in order to be a LIFEFORM is crazy and very provincial.
We just don’t know.
There could be life out there that is much more efficient that us. Maybe lifeforms that breathe pure hydrogen. Who knows.
But, this announcements doesn’t excite me.
Just a distraction.
