Our government just needs to fund N.A.S.A. More. Bottom line. America is too caught up in what's happening now to plan for the future. One of these days we're going to need N.A.S.A. more than any government stimulus package or the military or anything along those lines. At the very least the government can take small amounts of funding from different branches and pool it into N.A.S.A. which will eventually be our greatest asset.

10/10 couldn't agree more. What happens when Earth runs out of room? The way the birth rate is increasing, it won't be long. Also, CO2 emissions: Unless scientists can perform nuclear fusion in the next few decades. We're as good as toast (literally. We're gonna destroy the ozone layer protecting us from harmful UV rays). #ProjectColonizeMars2030

Government response: Nah, subsidizing failing bushiness and oil companies who generate billions in profits is our priority, not asteroid mining, moon minerals, or going to other plantes.

**** corporations and their strangle on the gov.

And then boom. We run out of non-renewable resources.

We're digging ourselves a hole that we aren't going to be able to get out of.

You missed the point, it isn't just about finding nice space rocks, NASA is a driver for technological advancement like no other force on the planet.

>Implying NASA only studies space.

You obviously have no idea what NASA is capable of. One of these days, the world is going to be in a crisis. It's only a matter of time. I'm not saying that resources and clean energy aren't important, i'm saying that we're really taking NASA for granted. At the very LEAST NASA deserves double the money that they're getting right now. In the end they're our greatest asset. They can't even properly fund the NEO program at their current budget rate.

Even if you divert like %2 of the military budget to NASA, that money would go a long way.

Exactly. The military budget is about 590 billion. N.A.S.A. gets 17.7 billion.

I mean come on. We have more than enough for military.

But the military would never be willing to give it up. They'd be too paranoid which is mostly why they strived for military careers in the first place.

I don't live in America, but I do know the military and NASA make massive discoveries.
The universities around the globe do as well. I think the universities should be funded more because the people making the discoveries do it because they want too. They find it interesting. There are also a lot more different minds, different view points etc.

I agree with that too. I'm not saying our military is a bad thing, i'm saying that it gets such way more money than it needs. We need to focus on research and advancement. And if we colonize another planet, we won't need to worry about a military.

A huge amount of technological innovation came about directly due to the military. Hell, we'd be 30 years behind on computer technology if it weren't for the need to crack enemy codes.

Yes, this is true as well. Like i said, i'm not against the military in any way, shape, or form. Just upset that we keep pooling all this extra money into the military while NASA doesn't even get enough to support its NEO program.

The brilliant minds at NASA are able to do so much with so little. If we spent as much money on NASA as we did for ******* world wide paper clips sales. NASA would be So. Much. More.

Is it cold up there on your high horse? You're just as insignificant as any other human on any website in existence. If anything, the fact that you seem to think you're better just makes you even less significant because you believe that the nothing you've don't in life means something.

why dude? whats your beef with weed anyways?...how has marijuana ever negatively affected your life in any way? i'll bet you dollars to donuts it hasn't...am i right?

There's only two types of people who are against drugs: the people who have never done drugs and the people who really sucked at doing drugs.

i smoke all day erryday, if not sleeping (or the 30 mins after i wake up) you can guarantee im high. i need to smoke before/during work since i manage a motel it helps me deal with all guests with a smile, and ive been at this job for over 2 years with maybe 5 guest complaints. everyone reacts differently to everything, weed helps me focus on detail and puts a smile on my face regardless, which is the #1 rule in hospitality, ALWAYS SMILE!

the point is if i can handle my **** while im high, why the **** do you care..we're not telling you to smoke it, just let us do it
