Spinoff :: Nasa Tech Briefs --------------------------------------- Every week, I get these NASA Tech Briefs. They go on about what is being developed at NASA. Then I come to the USMB, and I read right wing comments about NASA not developing much. Scientists on the dole who do nothing. Pork. Innovation comes from the private sector. Are they wrong? Are they lying? I thought government couldn't do anything right. Then there are all those comments about education. Do those scientists from NASA have education? Why are they always called "Doctor"? So, NASA is proof that government can do something right or it isn't. Do right wingers make government fail to prove it doesn't work? I worked at NASA for two weeks about 20 years ago. It was at "White Sands". A lot of immigrants. The doctor in charge of the department I was working at was from Transylvania and that's no joke. One thing I can say, the place is crawling with liberals.
