Oh great, a hundred million tax payers will each chip in a buck and we'll be able to send a junk toaster to Miami.

How about we take a lot of the money we're spending on military contractors to build tanks we don't need to invest in NASA, which might actually create new technologies that could benefit people.

Because this planet isn't big enough for me and the teatards, so either they go or I do, and I'd prefer that day come sooner rather than later.

I think I could be too. Think about launching a tank via rail gun from Topeka and having it land an hour later right outside of Damascus.

Why anyone would voluntarily give money to NASA so they can listen in on our phone calls is beyond me.

I am more in favor of a 1% federal sales tax

50% to social programs, 50% to NASA

That way you can please both D and R

1. R's like big loud things that go boom. They dont give a shiat what does it as long as there are a bunch of fireworks
2. Since when are D's so obtuse about raising taxes equally?

Since 1% of a millionaires money doesn't keep him from feeding his family, but 1% of a guy making $30,000 just might.

didn't a lot of NASA technology start out as military technology (rockets, jets)? So aren't we technically helping NASA by developing new and better ways to kill each other?

The problem with this is that if you get $200 million from taxpayers, congress will just cut it's part $200 mil.  Hell, prolly $300 mil under the thinking "idiots will panic and more will send money to NASA".

What's really needed is for taxpayers to have a way to prioritize where congress spends it's money.  Do that and bye bye farm subsidies, ethanol, big biz tax breaks, $600 toilet seats, bridges to nowhere, etc etc etc.

2013-11-19 01:02:13 PM  
Seems that a better way to accomplish this would be to organize letters and phone calls to your member of Congress in support of funding NASA. Not voting for teabaggers would also be a good start.

We had a lot of luck on Venus
We always had a ball on Mars
Meeting all the groovey people
We've rocked the Milky Way so far
We danced around with Borealice
We're space truckin' round the the stars
Come on let's go Space Truckin'

Remember when we did the moonshot
And Pony Trekker led the way
We'd move to the Canaveral moonstop
And everynaut would dance and sway
We got music in our solar system
We're space truckin' round the stars
Come on let's go Space Truckin'

The fireball that we rode was moving
But now we've got a new machine
Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah the freaks said
Man those cats can really swing
They got music in their solar system
They've rocked around the Milky Way
They dance around the Borealice
They're Space Truckin' everyday
Come on
