    Imagine that in Expert Astronomists and and Goverment Scientists say that in 2040 a 10 Mile Wide Asteriod of pure Iron is going to hit the Earth.
    They show Report after Report of all of their Findings, and they say that it is going to happen.

    What do we do? Do we use all of our Government and Private Resources to Stop if now? Or do we wait? Do we wait for more Reports, more findings? Do we just Wait and See what happens? Do we put it off to another Generation to handle the problem?

    In 2005, the US Government Accountability Office stated that in 2040, if we don't change our system of Taxation Now, the United States National Debt's Intrest is going to be more than the Entire US Tax Revenue Stream. Which Means that if you add up all of the Value of Everything in the United States, Collect ALL of the Money for Government, it will not be enough to pay the INTEREST in our National Debt. That means, no money for ANY Government Programs at all. Basically, if we don't do anything about it now, in 32 years, the Country will collapse due to the Over burdening Tax Code that we have in our Country, and the Spending of our Government.

    Do we take care of that Asteroid now? Do we Destroy the Asteroid, or at least divert it? Or do we wait for more information? Do we sit, and wait it out? Do we let our Children take care of it?


    If you want to help, and learn what you can do, go to my FairTax Thread in my Signature. Read through the Thread. Learn what the FairTax can do for the United States Economy and for you.

    I thought this would be a cool, "what-if" type of thread where we could submit our plans for solving the asteroid problem... not another thread about how the free world is going to collapse if the U.S. doesn't switch to the FairTax :csad:

    Since the asteroid is made out of pure iron, and according to your post we have a gigantic money issue the obvious solution would be to find some way to catch the asteroid, perhaps some sort of net. Then bring the asteroid down to the surface and harvest it. 10 miles of pure iron should take care of the money issue, no?

    Actually it's earlier than that, I believe, dude.

    2028: It's going to pass Earth's orbit

    7 years later it's going to hit us (2035!!!!) if we're not able to push it away in time.

    It's not longer a "if", it's a definite- only thing we need to hope for now is that they're satelite plan (push it out of the way) works- or we're all dead.

    I guess that is a pretty good test to see if people really read the First Post or Not...

    We'll all be screwed anyway, whether we agree to FairTax or not. And I will still have to kiss my lovely planet goodbye.

    if it doesn't destroy earth completely i say let it hit us, maybe earth can re sustain itself again like it did in the past and give future life a chance to evolve in a better world.

    Blah, scientists issue a prediction of an asteroid hitting earth every couple of weeks.

    :huh:

    It's happened many, many times in the history of the earth and other planets, moons, etc. It's less of a testament to luck or circumstance than it is to the sheer amount of crap that's floating around out there, and the inherent risk of being on a planet moving at thousands of miles per hour through a freakin' minefield of debris and **** everywhere.

    My $0.02.

    I'll be 50 in 2040. I hope I've completed the 'things to do in my life' list by then.

    /\ See false hope. Guys if it does hit, it's NOT 2040. It's 2035.

    And dude that wrote original post, your question may be 2040, but experts say meteorite itself- dinosaur destruction, we're all dead impact- is 2035. 5 less years to live we don't get this fcker away from us as fast as possible

    *WHOOSH*

    That's the point of the entire thread (and the original post) zooooming over your head. :up:

    HINT: "Imagine," might have been a clue.

    lol. Why do you think they're doing all of this spending? They already know that a giant asteroid is going to kill everyone in a few years and make economy and civilization start over anyway.

    What's happening right now is they're running through a governmental 'Bucket List'...

    How big was the asteroid that hit the dinosaurs

    AND, it might hit only if it goes through the "keyhole"

    /\ Actually it's going to hit that whole, scientists already have it calculated. It will hit, they're working on a satellite thingy to try to save us though that they've been working on for a long time already. Watched a whole documentary on this.

    And don't actually need to "imagine" since a meteor is EXPECTED in REALITY to hit in 2035. So there's no imagining here... that would be like 'imagine we're in a war against terrorists and what will you do win someone wins that war?' there's no imagining, it's only a question of what will you do when it will- and it will- happen...

    But, as I said they've been working on a solution for a long time, so hopefully they'll be able to hit it off course.

    Well. I think the best solution is to try and blow it up into seperate pieces and have those pieces go around us. The only problem is, that we would probaly have to blow it up from it's core. The only way I see us doing that is sending a crew up to the asteroid and drilling a hole into it and then place a nuclear device in it. We would need a crew that's skilled in drilling, say offshore drillers and train them for space flight. You know, it just might work. Or God help us.

    Fairtax is good IMO.
