Sure, our space program has fallen apart, but on the flipside, the top 1% has really enjoyed those tax breaks.

Nabb1: It's rather sad how little interest there is in our space program anymore. I guess our society doesn't feel inspired anymore by scientific achievement.


But did you see Honey Boo Boo's mama cookin' sketti?

AndreMA: No, but he has input to the process and a lot of Democrats in Congress follow his "leadership" on issues that don't have large, direct impacts on their home districts.


Do you honestly believe that Boner would let any budget proposed by Obama, regardless of what it contains, pass the house?

AndreMA: Thanks, Obama!

I remember during his 2008 campaign that he wanted to slash NASA funding in order to fund some education initiative he favored. After a large outcry, he claimed to have changed his mind.

Instead he was just lying, as he is more than half the time. It's a shame he didn't bother to actually attend one of the last Shuttle launches. I'm sure he could have gotten a great vantage point... maybe a lawn chair in the flame trench.


Not to ruin your little anti-Obama rant but you do know that Obama can't do anything himself without congress right? I'd say Congress is even more to blame since they control the money, all Obama can do is set policy/veto or sign off on it. Its easy to blame one person, but not exactly correct.

SevenizGud: $17.7B - NASA budget

I guess the budget could be bigger, but we are too busy paying  for the 7 trillion dollars in pointless foreign wars our corporate masters wanted.

I'm right there with you. I really thought we'd at least be back to the moon by now, but nobody likes science.

Makes me want to start my own space program, with blackjack and hookers.
