NEWS AND VIEWS YOU DON'T HAVE TO LOSE:

Commentary:

It cost over $800 million to send the recent probe to Mars to take pictures of rocks.

WHERE AS one-third of our income taxes goes to pay the interest on the $6 Trillion national debt, WHERE AS we have a $1.5 trillion infrastructure debt, and WHERE AS we have a world population growth problem and coming oil shortage and energy crisis, WHERE AS a 1,000 times as many scientist could be put to work on down to earth type scientific research with the tax money, BE IT RESOLVED that a $100 billion space station and other funds spent for space exploration and astronomy are not a wise use of scientific research money.
