Never going to happen. One of our two parties actively opposes science.
 
2013-03-08 11:14:57 AM  
There's plenty of earthbound science I'd rather see us focusing on.  We don't need that moon colony any time soon, but can I get my damned flying self-driving car already?

Stop being reasonable!
 
2013-03-08 12:11:09 PM  
space exploration is cool but that's dumb
 
2013-03-08 12:13:05 PM  
Deficit hawks should love NASA. Look at what they do with their budget. Talk about efficient.
 
2013-03-08 12:15:44 PM  
Get out of the space race. You're only holding us back.

Can't disagree at all.  It's simply astounding what NASA continues to accomplish with a budget that is perpetually under assault.

look at rocks? I can do that in my backyard for free. Sheeeeit.

We have little idea what is really under the ocean. Why not spend 1% of the federal budget exploring and protecting what is HERE!

C'mon people.  We all know we need that federal money to kill brown people from far away.
 
2013-03-08 12:20:14 PM  
What's it at right now? Like 0.5% of the federal budget?

yeah that was a total lie.
My backyard is an airshaft... I can go to the Park and look at rocks during daylight hours though!

yeah this is a petition i can get behind.

I get the feeling both parties will be opposed to NASA now that Google and other individual billionaires want to privatize space.

TELL YOUR  farkING CONGRESSMAN/SENATOR NOT THE PRESIDENT YOU IDIOTS!


/Really sick and tired of idiots who think the president is in charge of everything, he is not. Learn how government works.
 
2013-03-08 12:29:26 PM  
Not going to happen since the people in control seem to think that smart people who do something productive with their lives should be treated worse than those who lay about and wait for government handouts.
 
2013-03-08 12:29:44 PM  

buttery_shame_cave: yeah this is a petition i can get behind.


So have you called or written your congressman about this? You know, do something that could actually help?

you should relax. It's a petition urging the President to suggest this to congress. Even says 'legislation' in the title.

I didn't write the petition. I am also not the one who is terribly upset by this basically meaningless petition. I am also not the one blowing a gasket by assuming that the people responsible for this petition have not ALSO contacted their reps and figured getting some support for the WH for such a notion wouldn't be a bad idea.

So, taken altogether. You are really that stupid.

actually I think it's a stupid idea. As I said.
I also think you're stupid for getting so upset by it. Everyone knows you know that the Pres isn't "in charge of everything". You're not impressing anyone with your knowledge by getting so excited about something so trivial... so excited in a way that doesn't even make sense.

skullkrusher: You should also not hit "Add Comment" until you're sure you've said all you've wanted in response to a comment.


Let me explain. Some people just do not repeat talking points that someone told them. They actually think about things. So when you just repeat your talking point someone told you, you have nothing more to say about the subject. Where when people like me think about a topic we continue to think about that topic and may come up with more ideas after our first idea. It's called, "thinking for yourself" you may wish to try someday.

Yeah you just keep pretending you are the level headed adult. If you tell that to yourself enough you'll believe it.
 
2013-03-08 12:46:15 PM  
While I favor science funding there is a certain faction of NASA-nuts who seem most similar to gun-nut survivalists. They are desperate to develop manned space flight right now, even if practical reason or sufficient technology doesn't exist. Their motto might be:

"Getting off of the Earth is the ONLY HOPE for the survival of the human race."

(also among the NASA-nuts are those who think Star Wars is cool and faster than light travel is feasible)

NASA is the National Aeronautics and Space Administration. A lot of what they do doesn't have much to do with space. Here's a link that was one of the first things to come up on Google.

because I don't have to assume that people are ignorant to feel better about myself or blow a fuse over it. There are "issues" at the bottom:

"Budget and Taxes", "Job Creation" and "Science and Space Policy". They don't strike me as user submitted tags. Why is the White House allowing people to post petitions regarding issues they might not have control over??!!! THIS IS AN OUTRAGE?!!!

Can you show me where I said something was an outrage?

Umm do you know who runs The Department of Labor? Or NASA? or most other government departments? You don't think the president does?

You seriously don't really understand what the executive branch does. If you think they don't run those departments of government.

Funny because you said these petitions are meaningless and now you seem once again to be arguing the fact that they are not?
