That "volcano monitoring" remark in Bobby Jindal's speech the other night may have passed a lot of people by without making much of an impression.
Did you know the USA government wants to spend your money on something called "Volcano Monitoring?" Are you kidding me?
Like Jindal said, "Americans can do anything," and that includes monitoring our own damn volcanoes. Seriously, how hard can it be? It's probably like ice fishing. Just get some binoculars and some graph paper and a thermometer and sit around looking at a stupid volcano and every once in a while, write down some data, like, "The volcano is still sitting there, lookin' like an off-brand mountain with a hole in it. 10 + 50 – 20. Pie chart."…
Ladies and gentlemen, Americans can do anything! Let's prove it to the world! LET'S ALL GET KILLED BY VOLCANOES!
I don't know about you, but I regret that I have but one life to get killed by a volcano.
