    I don't disagree....NASA isn't the only problem. IMO, NASA should be dedicating half of its brainpower to solving our current energy problems.
    I wouldn't abolish NASA, just redirect some of its efforts...

    You more than likely didn't shoot that arrow in an area that had lots of people in it. IE you took precautions. Just like NASA and other space agencies around the world.

    OK, I got it. ---NASA should post it's plans for the coming year, and exactly what it will cost tax payers. then let them vote on it. Seems fair to me. ---they are not the only organization that needs trimming, just the one I started with. --You may be next. ---so put those ink cartridges back.

    The people already vote on it every time they vote for someone that endorses what NASA does. If you don't like NASA then start voting for people that are against it.

    And NASA doesn't need any more trimming. They've already been trimmed down ALOT. They take up less than 1% of our budget...they use to take up a lot more.

    They should be given far far far more imo.

    I have no more thoughts that anything will done about NASA than I do any other gubment run entity. they will just continue to cost us more, and produce less. ---the aphids of this fine country will continue to be milked to death. cause that is the bottom line. Milk um till they bleed, then give them a band aid. ---Nothin ever changes.

    Have you not read ANYTHING that I have posted? NASA does not produce less. For every dollar spent on it, it brings in 7-8 dollars.

    Part of it no doubt goes towards all the socialist programs that so many enjoy. Other parts of it no doubt goes towards things like roads or even more research.

    Just because YOU don't see any tangible effects (mainly due to ignorance on the subject) does not mean that there are none.

    It is Christmas, no point in being rude--it's just a discussion.
