Ok, well I was reading about some "Space stuff" you know how we're going to Mars. NASA has even named the missions, "Constellation". And
they've given money to design the crafts so it's pretty much going to happen...Words are just words but money is final.
But there are some who say, "Can't we spend the money better?"
No. First off, a few billion a year is all that's needed. Second what is really more worthless?
Space exploration which has given you better computers, better synthetic materials, lunchables, kraft cheese. So forth.
Or Welfare, which is pretty indescriminant and therefore useless. Welfare and Health Programs spend roughly about 400 Billion dollars a year and
amazingly does nothing.
If we cut that all our budget problems would be solved.
And we don't even need to cut it.
If we were to actually make sure the money got to those who needed it, and not bureaucracies and to people who lie on those easy to fill out
forms...we'd save a SUBSTANTIAL sum and actually help the problem.
But this isn't what the special interests want...the Middle Class wants the Welfare Money...they are after all the largest class.
Anyways...so next time you think "Space Exploration is a waste of money." Just remember that 30-50% of your money is going to that average joe down
on the end of the block.
