We Should Take The Money That We Spend On Space Exploration And Use It On Social Programs??????

#mannedmarsmissionsDear Ron:

Elena would agree with you. I once read a brilliant little book by the author Mary Roach. It's title was Packing For Mars. This lady literally put her heart and her soul into this project. She went to Russia and trained to be a cosmonaut. She qualified to fly on the Soyuz spacecraft but would have had to pay $20 million to actually take a flight. She went to the Johnson Space Center and took US astronaut training including a two-week course on how to use the toilet on the international space station.
The ending of the book produced a real pearl of wisdom. She talked about how cold and inhospitable space was. She talked about how dangerous a long-duration spaceflight was for humans. She kept talking about all the negatives. I was sure that the book was going to end saying that we should not send human missions to Mars. Then she surprised the hell out of me with the final words in the book:
"Oh well, if we don't send humans to Mars, they won't spend that money on social programs. What the heck, we might as well go ahead and do it."

Ron if I was in court now, my words would be: "I rest my case."

With kindest regards,

Social programs? So the comfort and degenerate behavior of poor people is more helpful to tax payers than advancing technology? Never mind that advances in technology are the only things allowing the indigent poor to be both of those things without starving to death.

The only thing more worthy than space exploration is figuring out how to cure mental illness and get these retarded lazy fucks back to work!

All the money we spend on space exploration is spent here, on earth

Approach of Lee Kuan Yew would work. Flogging is cheap and efficient...

Don't feed the bears.

The Tax payers flat out refuse to entertain any more lofty pie in the sky dreams the Leftiod Commies dream up that entails our tax dollars and people that are being imported to replace us at work and home.

What we need to do is round up the 11 million Trump promised and send every cocksucker the fuck back. I didn't want nor think Trump would actually do that when he was running. Nor did I care. But the Liberals have proven they are hell bent on breaking and destroying our system. And importing people to over burden all of Ameirca's institutions are the tool for doing it.

The current batch of Liberals makes me understand History, and if the people in the historical mass grave lime pits are full of people just like the Left of today. Then History books are on the wrong side of that argument. They were killed for the preservation of humanity. There's no way humanity would have survived as long as it has, if the current Left had their way. They are a danger to humanity.

I say everyone should just stop paying taxes and starve the fuckers out of My Country.

That actually would work if it got enough people involved. The IRS would face an impossible job to audit even ten percent of the taxpaying population. That would take years and would slow down the system permanently. Voluntary payment is the only method that truly has ever worked, even in Medieval times. Wresting taxes by force is slow and inefficient, and often costs more money than you get from the process.

Yes. we should promote the squalorous and degraded reproduction of more slobbering, incoherent knuckle draggers. If forebrain matter is eradicated from the enslaved portions of the population, everybody will vote Democrat and believe all that the Great Socialist Paradise preaches!

Well how much more would Rep/Con freeloaders get in Socialist Republican handouts?
The failures will be glad to sit on their asses while Republicans allows tax dollars to be handed out to these losers.

Would rather spend money looking for alien life than illegal aliens.

Nah, why provide jobs for STEM majors, expand technical and theoretical knowledge, inspire the youth, and open up frontiers.

Let's give Welfare Hos more Ho-Hos. And bring in a million new ones a year.
