  •  The money is still here, on earth. (4+ / 0-)

    We didn't send it to Mars. So how was it wasted? Gawd, I figured that out when I was a teenager and fifty years later, I'm still screaming it. We didn't send 24 billion dollars to the moon! That money went into people's pockets. Maybe you think it should go into somebody else's pocket. That's your opinion. But it's not gone. It's not burnt up like gasoline in your car. A lot of people's concept of money is like a baby playing peek-a-boo, if they don't see it, it's gone.

    We're fools whether we dance or not, so we might as well dance.

      I remember almost exactly 4 years ago some people were complaining about the amount of money being spent for an election celebration in Chicago. But it was money going to people setting up the sound system, building the stage, providing security, etc - a mini "stimulus". I saw, and still see, no harm in that.

      I was drawn to the flame because of the light, but got lost in the smoke.
