Any reply that people give that starts with that word is always, 100% of the time, condescending bull shite that has no real practical application. Actually
, you need to go frick yourself.
We do not need to spend billions of dollars on the moon RIGHT NOW. The way you describe it is a "hair brained get rich quick" scheme.
We need practical, real world spending cuts. Massive government worker layoffs. Do you have any idea how many useless government positions are available for people who suck too much to make it in the private sector? I have had relatives and friends in many levels of state and a few in federal positions who have expressed the overabundance of useless people in their (and others') government offices. I know I can't be the only person to have heard this.
We need to cut before we can grow. It's like a fruit tree; you cut the branches that do not produce fruit so that the others can thrive.
Root out that which is fruitless, so that the fruitful might survive and multiply.
I am by no means a political junkie or someone who knows exactly what it takes to make things right.
I do know that if I was having trouble paying my bills, and owed money all over town, the first thing I would do is cut my needless spending. I would not wipe out my savings to order a "work from home" kit from late night TV. Eating out for dinner, movies, drinking, bars, junk food, hobbies: cut them all. Then I'd look at the situation.
Also, come up with a budget that keeps you on track to paying back the sharks.
