    That road and bridge were built by private contractors whose quality standards are set by a private non-profit, that satellite could be any private companies, and that damn dam represents one of the worst environmental boondoggles in American history, not to mention the cultural damage done to displaced Native Americans who lived along the river. For what purpose? It feeds a few farms that shouldn't be out in the desert water, and provides some electricity that would be more efficiently supplied through other sources.

    They need to tear that damn dam down and abolish the Department of Interior.

    Tax dollars paid for all.

    The dam powers Las Vegas. Environmentally it was the best investment ever. That was one of many public works projects that help re-employ American, give people a job, a purpose.

    Cell phones, tv wouldn't exist w/o NASA and tax dollars.

    Think about that while you're watching the olympics and texting the results to a friend.

    Watch this PBS documentary and let me know if it changes your mind. Yes, I know, 'PBS wouldn't be around if it weren't for Karl Marx blah blah blah'...just watch it!

    TV was around before NASA, and these communications companies design, build and launch their own satellites.

    And without business creating jobs and wealth there would be no taxes. Is that the way you understand it?

    We're talking about federal income tax, which 45% of Americans don't pay. Gas tax is only if you own a car. Other type of taxes are state taxes or sales taxes. But those do not contribute to the the federal government.

    Thats utter nonsense. There was absolutely insult in it. From his tone to his giggling. Watch the video. He clearly belittles individual achievement or at the very least dismisses it as the key to someone being successful.
