I like how, when the U.S. doesn't seem to have any money, Bush

Posted to Poetry and Politics

decides to spend about a ja-zillion dollars, on the U.S. space program. Yeah, I think that's a great idea.
While the U.S. economy isn't doing all that great, (despite what people say) and while thousands upon thousands of people will be losing their jobs, each week, I think that it's a great idea, for the U.S. to spend millions of dollars, so that some dude can fly to the moon, skip around on its land for a couple of minutes, and then go home.

Indeed. Instead of, say putting more money in to try to improve on Education, or also, say, trying to figure out (with funds) how to make health care more affordable to everyone, let's just spend lots of money, so that every few years, different people can go to the moon, skip around on it, for a bit, and then fly home. It sure will make good television, eh?

And, also, who do you think might be paying for this little venture... could it be.. the "public"?...Hmm.....
