    ‘Perish in its flames’

    John F. Kennedy said, “Together we shall save our planet, or together we shall perish in its flames.”

    As true as Kennedy’s “perish in its flames” quote was for its time during our arms race with the USSR, it is perhaps even more applicable now when we face global warming amidst the man-made denial of the ultra-right.

    Only persistent effort on the part of the left constituency trigs the wheels of the vehicle loaded with arms, oil, money and Republicans who are hell-bent on enjoying the suicidal trip because they believe their own life span will expire before journey’s end.

    Have fun, kids.
