If you don’t believe in the concept of time travel, you might want to start watching old reruns of Star Trek: The Next Generation. I’ve already posted on other episodes that clearly showed someone from the nineties was eerily scripting science fiction that could be based on life in America as we now live. Big Daddy was amazed at the prescient irony he was watching and called me in to listen to this conversation between Hugh, a former member of the Borg collective who shun all individualism, and some of the officers of the star ship Enterprise (including the Klingon security officer Worf):
Hugh: You probably can’t imagine what it is like to be so lost and frightened that you will listen to any voice that promises change.
Worf: Even if that voice insists on controlling you?
Hugh further expounds upon how the mastermind of the Borg creation “had no idea how to keep his promises. He began talking about the need for us to make sacrifices.”
Eerie. Creepy. Sounds like now.
Unfortunately, I’m tired as death due to my work schedule and God knows what else. I haven’t even had time to go over the new “health care” manifesto, so I can’t pick it apart yet like I know I should. I did hear somewhere that any family making over something like $88,000 per year would be paying a 10% tax to help pay for this. If this is true, you might as well say goodbye to the middle class of America. I can only hope this isn’t true.
