You're probably right. A little mellowing out would do wonders.

Are you going to try and tell me you yourself and your family members would not like to be without an energy bill? You better talk to them, I'm betting they would all just love to be without am monthly bill.

Why, yes, as a matter of fact, I do. I can run a statistical cost benefit analysis in the blink of an eye. But you see, where you are making your error is in lack of actual knowlege of the benefits that have been available through the space program. If you aren't aware of the benefits, all you see are the costs. That is not an accurate cost benefit analysis.

So go solar. The technology is available. But what does that have to do with the space program? Actually, the vast majority of Americans supported the space program. And the vast majority would love to not have to pay a ulitities bill every month. One has nothing to do with the other.

Whoa! let's try to keep a cohesive thought process here. "It is dumb..." is not a very good argument. And no, I could not afford to build a lunar base if I wanted to. I would be first in line if NASA wanted to setup a lunar base.

Actually the public has been very supportive of NASA over the years.

Who wouldn't want to be without an energy bill???? but what does this have to do with NASA????

I thought you said you could do a cost/benefit!

Where you and Cheetha get lost is.......who pays for NASA?
Right the taxpayers of America....they have no choice
In return for THEIR INVESTMENT, the advancements come at a second cost to THEM.

YES, solar technology had ben R&Red by private companies and the products are allowable to the public. But the public pays through the nose for second-rated advancement. NO, I don't fault these private companies. They did not have an over $1 billion dollars a year, on average, for R&R like NASA did. Had they had that much the advancements would today be first-rated and affordable to all, unlike today's which are affordable only to the well-off.

oh I see. I wouldn't know because like what my avatar says... I'm the elitist. I eat/drink healthy and natural stuff.... and steaks

I don't drink and eat common American food products much like Cheetos, Fruit Rolls, Capri Sun, etc.

I know about a lot of things that I don't personally use.

BTW, I don't think there's anything elite about steak eating--that's very American, especially if it's grilled outside.

You are totally right. The American people elected these idiots, now it is time to get rid of them. Otherwise, the people will get no benefit of their money/taxes. It is high time these "Santa Clauses" stop giving a few people "just what I ask for" and others "a lump of coal".

I thought for a few seconds that you said it was very UNamerican. Well, that got my attention. I love steak but I rarely eat it.

You are entitle to your thoughts. FYI, in the 38 years with USPS I refused to use the TSP but invested with Vanguard the whole time. I'm comfortable with a high six-figure investment. Not an elite but comfortable in retirement, I earn it!
