If we can afford to waste $10 billion on the failed F-35, we can afford NASA..NASA increases humanities knowledge. Fighter jets are wasted money. It’s all about the contractors getting big bucks for lousy work, not about our defense.
Thanks. I didn’t know that for sure, so I didn’t think including the whole state in my comment might be deceptive.
On a more serious note, Cook County in Illinois allows gambling places to advertise on TV. That’s going to bankrupt a lot of people. Such advertising should be banned just as cigarettes and hard liquor are.
The interesting thing is that “socialism” was no problem for the U.S. until the Uber Rich took over our country in the Gilded Age. Public schools are socialism, the above-mentioned stuff is socialism. The Post office was socialism enshrined in the Constitution. Socialism being “bad” was invented in the Gilded Age so that the Very Rich could maintain their wealth.
Texas wants to become an independent nation. And yet they can’t provide a reliable source of electricity. It would be an independent nation for about 1 year and then it would descend into the North American version of the libertarian paradise, Somalia.

In my humble opinion, the Pledge of Allegiance is actually a prayer to the state. It can be said that the State has taken the place of regular religion because we follow the laws of the state even when it contradicts the teachings of Jesus.

God is a “he” because he was a male god in the Canaanite pantheon, whose name now escapes me because I’m an Old Fart.
The reason they like Trump so much is that they see him as the anti-Christ and he will bring about the Apocolypse
