Amazing? Yes it is.
Amazing people have become so completely stupid.
"Charity Begins at Home" should be tattooed on the foreheads of every NASA official as a reminder of what really counts.
I pray for the day when taxpayers can designate where their money is spent.
Pictures of a dead planet, or, feed, clothe, educate and heal the poor?
Let me hear what you'd say to the face of a starving American. Please.
Gutless cowards need not respond.
Your post...I can't even...Ignorance is bliss eh..
There are many people who had thought like you do throughout history, and also who have spoken as you do. But if all humanity did is listen to people like you, and spend money feeding those who are starving(which most of the time is their own fault), humans as a race would still be in dark ages.
I hear that same argument whenever ANY new technological advecnment or research is being made, there is always that one persons saying "Why waste money on something that COULD be, when we can feed the needy?" and yet, they live in luxury themselves, using that same technology every single day that has been talked about in the same way they do.
You are on a computer website, I'm sure you own an expensive computer, yet you talk about wasting money? I bet you anything when the first research in to real computing was being done, there were lots of people who said "What do we need this for? Why not use that money for other GOOD things?"
Yet here you are using that same technology, you are a hypocrite and always will be.
