The Future And The Past

Sadly, I think this might be pretty accurate:

TOM THE DANCING BUG: What Will Be the Biggest Political Story of 2032?

The only thing he's missing is the lawmakers promising tax cuts and interest rate manipulation to get the unemployment rate down from 50 percent to a more "normal" level of thirty percent. Economists will still be wondering when things will get back to normal. I like this comment:

Sadly this is too true to be funny.  Every bill that passes congress might as well be named the "Fiddling While Rome Burns Act of 2012"

Rewind almost exactly 100 years, and this is what they thought they'd be getting: The Remote Control Farm of the Future, Circa 1931 (Treehugger)

Unfortunately, they did not depict all the crops withering from drought due to global warming. How did the techno-fetishists miss that one? But I'm sure all their predictions today about our glorious future are accurate.
