Fools, your house is burning but you’re cutting the grass ….

I don’t know if it is just me, but if my metaphorical house was burning I would not be cutting the grass.

I know that there are certain things that mankind has to pursue in order to advance, but before I was looking past the Earth to inhabit other planets, I certainly would put things into priority here on earth before looking skyward.

Each year federal agencies receive funding from Congress, known as budgetary resources . In FY 2022, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) had $30.62 Billion distributed among its 1 sub-components. Agencies spend available budgetary resources by making financial promises called obligations .

Squandering taxpayer’s money exploring outer space is crazy. The first thing on my agenda would be taking care of business on Mother Earth. There are so many desperate areas that need attention, including starvation, homelessness, and lack of drinking water, repairing of infrastructure, home-grown terrorism, cost of living, illegal immigration, the list is endless. Instead of taking care of Mother Earth and its inhabitants, the government sees fit to blow 30 billion a year for something that is an absolute long shot at best and probably an impossibility. That is just one of their handpicked pet projects.

It is no secret that government employees are one of the biggest offenders of intercoursing canines. I don’t think that our readers need that to be defined.

Anything that would take private industry one year to develop, it would take 10 times that long if it were a government project. They are absolutely brutal when it comes to deliberately dragging their feet and stretching out a project.

I am only pissing up a rope when I write these different articles about the mismanagement of government. I know all well and good that my opinion can be compared to one spit in the ocean. I know it is falling on deaf ears, but I feel the necessity to express myself.

There are thousands of things that have been out of kilter with our government and no chance of them changing anytime soon or for that matter, ever.

I just find it disgraceful that there are so many needy people on this planet and so much money has to be squandered in foolish areas, that for the most part are not feasible.


What should have priority over the other??

Shooting ourselves into outer space or taking care of the starving people on this planet?? Does it make sense, it is a no-brainer.

Will mankind ever inhabit the moon or any other planet?? Mankind may set foot on these planets but as far as setting up a working/functional civilization, it is absolutely impossible. We can not handle problems here on earth with any degree of success, can we imagine dealing with racial issues on Mars???

If it cost $30 billion a year just for research and development, can we even imagine what kind of price tag to put on a trip to colonize another planet?? Unfathomable.

There are certain entities that have an open book in our government pissing away taxpayer money, NASA is probably one of the premier offenders.

Will the system ever change?? You can bet your life it won’t. As far as the powers to be ever considering the plight of the average citizen, don’t hold your breath. All we are is a source of an open bankbook to these governmental thieves.
