der der der is all have to say to that post.
we would not have most of the technological advances we do have today without nasa. you like Tang dont ya? if you havent had this your missing out lol. Teflon is another nice product.
here are some sites that tell why nasa is important:
and these are only a few of the advances nasa has done for us.
what has the IRS or the FBI done for us lately? what has our government done for us lately besides make the rich richer and the poor poorer and then spend all of our money on meeting their budget so they can get more money they probably wont need next year?
i know its not Obama's fault, not solely at least.
there is a new petition site for the government and i say we start a petition to keep NASA?
oh and as far as needing money, i know its only a drop in the bucket but:
those nice shiny presidential dollar coins they started a few years ago, they are not selling. they keep making more because an act of congress is required to stop the production. there are roughly $4+ billion of these coins in surplus. instead of taking a bill to congress to stop making them, they are going to spend another couple million to build a warehouse to store the coins while continuing to make them. talking about DUMB!Edited by Tipless - 10/27/11 at 7:43am
