Bush Administration prefers finding Little Green Men instead of giving you Health Benefits

Hey, i'm all for space travel. But right now..hmmm...this just irks me to the bone. In a time when "Generation Debt" is struggling to pay their bills, the House of Representatives passed the bill to give NASA 34.7 Billion dollars to get to the moon by 2020 and Mars sometime thereafter (383-15, it now moves to the Senate).

This is just another example of how the lower-middle class gets fucked in the ass. My yearly out of pocket expenses for prescription drugs and crappy HMO take a big chunk out of my yearly income, which isn't much.

If NASA and politicians have such "hard-ons" for going back into space, why dont they just smoke a joint, throw on Pink Floyd, and head to an IMAX space film. That experience is a lot cheaper and a hell of alot more fun.

These (extremely expensive) baby steps off our little blue orb are very important. I know the price is many times hard to swallow. Would it matter if we didn't have such debt? It'd still be expensive. There would always be something else that people feel is more important. But these trips are more important that simple trips for some space geek's fancy.

you know, after thinking about it and discussing the topic with friends, my opinion has changed quite a bit about it. I was always for space travel like i said, and just started ranting about it.

Shopping around I felt the need for another reward card and the wide selection I got here was overwhelming.
