    This is one typical American stunt. It will not work. No-one is going to Mars, not in the timeframe they promise, not in a timeframe ten times longer, not on a commercial basis. The U.S. is struggling to keep up their commitment to the ISS and has to rent space on foreign capsules to meet their obligations, but this company offers rides to Mars?!?

    IT’S A SHAM! A ponzy! A fraud! It’s snake-oil! Why do you people fall for this over and over and over again??? Are you retarded, on a national level? Poor U.S. of A….

    If my reading was correct, this effort is from a company in Denmark, and not the USA. The private efforts in the USA are being sponsored by NASA and are aimed at competitively getting people up to low Earth orbit and the ISS in the next couple of years. Something that is reasonably doable. Not all of us in the US are crazy!!

    If you’re not, then ask your family for help, bang on the church door, beg, die or otherwise just plain get out of the way.

    There are so many safety nets that they will strangle you.
    .
    So are you saying there are too many “safety nets”? Which would you cut? Food Stamps, preschool, elder care, health care, Social Security? All of it? I suppose that in place of all that “free stuff”, we could bring back the work houses and debtors prisons, too. Make families responsible for feeding the prison population? And if a worker dies in debt, go after the family to pay up or go into forced servitude to “work it off”, just like “the good old days”.

    Hey, welcome to the Third World, United States.

    The GAO (Government Accountability Office) said in a 2013 report there are 162 areas where services are duplicated or money is being wasted in the federal government. The annual cost of duplicative or wasteful programs is estimated at roughly $250 billion, according to fiscal hawk Sen. Tom Coburn, R-Okla. …

    The U.S. government has more than 100 programs dealing with surface transportation issues, 82 monitoring teacher quality, 80 for economic development, 47 for job training, 20 offices or programs devoted to homelessness and 17 different grant programs for disaster preparedness. Another 15 agencies or offices handle food safety, and five are working to ensure the federal government uses less gasoline… Nine federal agencies spend $18 billion a year on 47 separate job training programs. All but three of the programs overlap with others… The government has at least 15 major financial literacy programs — including three new ones established by the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act.

    Government overlap costs taxpayers billions, GAO reports

    USA Today: GAO report: Billions spent on duplicate federal programs

    Oh, good: Latest GAO report details billions more in wasteful/duplicative spending

    USA Today: Report: Redundant federal programs waste billions

    GAO Report

    So somebody says there are so many gov’t programs they are strangling, and they knee jerk liberal response is “you want to bring back work-houses”? Typical.

    The topic was “safety net”. Your list didn’t mention those. typical.

    @churchillwasright

    $18 billion for the programs you mentioned, none of which are safety nets. How many billions are wasted with subsidies to agribusiness, oil business, and others? I’m sure there are plenty of programs and policies that can be cut without doing it on the backs of those least able to defend themselves.

    @Zuhlamon

    The total was $250 Billion. $18 Billion was only the duplication in 47 Job Training programs.
