  •  I think it's ignorant short-sighted, and weak. (5+ / 0-)

    Ignorant of the fact that the budget for space exploration is a tiny fraction of the federal budget, that would have zero impact if shifted to more immediate concerns.

    Short-sighted in being willing to sacrifice basic science that is essential to the long-term evolutionary success of Earth-based life in the cosmos.  

    And weak in that it pre-emptively gives up on core progressive values rather than seeking to fight for the kinds of taxation and other policies that are truly needed to meet the urgent circumstances of our times.  

    "Minus two votes for the Republican" equals "plus one vote for the Democrat." Arithmetic doesn't care about their feelings either!
