better spent here on Earth?

Here’s another perspective on the bailout:  according to this table which currently shows budgetary numbers in 2007 inflation-adjusted dollars, it took NASA 45 years (1958-2002) to spend $700bn!  I’d defend NASA’s enormous accomplishments against that colossal display of Federally-driven fiscal incompetence any day of the week.

If there was any doubt before – no, your tax dollars most certainly wouldn’t have been spent better here on Earth.
