Improving the lives of the people in it comes to mind fairly easily.
The latest space EX joy ride into space $243 dollars spent so people can fly into space. Think of all the homes that could have been built for the homeless for $243 million dollars. What a waste.!!?
Yea, you defended the rich, sarcastically.
Did you read post 25? I'm not the only one that took it that you hate the rich. You said that rich people's money trickles down to millionaires. You are wildly wrong.
That is total bullshit, it has worked every time, until your dumbass political hacks get in office and tax the shit out of everyone. When the rich get richer, they spend more, cars, boat, airplanes, those who build those nice things get paid for their goods and services. In turn those buy cars, houses and clothes, thus in turn pay for their goods and services....Stupid fucks like you, only parrot what the prog masters demand that you say. That is called "Cult".

But how much of it trickled down to those not making a living wage?
To the people designing and building the spacecraft. How many of those are millionaires?
There are people throughout the world with no clean drinking water, no toilets, no electricity. My point is that $243 million dollars could have brought clean drinking water, and toilets to these people. I
It would make it better.Depends on how you view the world, I guess.
Yes, we could spend money on people who aren't pulling their weight in society. What impact would that have on society?
I have worked in the space industry, both Hughes and Boeing in their satellite divisions. I knew quite a few of the designers, they were not driving high end cars. What, do you think that is some kind of super-super high end paying position? Maybe the top end are making a payroll somewhere in the low 6 figures.
You really don't get this stuff, do you?
It would make it better.
No.We have been doing it in this country for half a century now. Sure does not seem much better to me, for all the trillions of dollars we have spent on that.
True story, when I lived in Alabama I lived pretty good. Good paying job, and the cost of living was really low. I even got a second job delivering pizza. I did not need that job, I just took it because a friend was the manager and she was always begging me to work for her because most of her delivery drivers were flakes.
Now to give an idea, my rent there 15 years ago was $250 a month. And not for some ghetto dump, it was a nice place. Finding places even today for under $500 a month is not hard. Somebody could easily afford that on minimum wage.
Yet, we had housing projects. And driving in them, most of the cars were nicer than mine was. I could see in their homes when they took the food, and they almost always had flat screen TVs, 2 or more game consoles, and other things that were rather expensive. Yet, they lived in government housing. More than one even tried to pay with food stamps (this is right before they switched to cards). And if anything, seeing things like that made me realize how broken the system was. They were living better than I was, and I held down 2 jobs. Right now, there is absolutely no incentive to get off of the payouts, so why should anybody do it?
So far since i have moved to Florida, i have given advice to a few people about investing in the stock market long term, where they can do dividend reinvestment to make themselves millionaires in 40 years. Yeah, 40 years, but since they are working anyway, why not pad their future income with those investments. I learned all about how to avoid paying progressive taxes, just by using the progressive tax loopholes, those progressives use.So what. They never will. They exist on handouts. They produce nothing. If a kid in that situation comes to me and says hey, I need help getting an education so I can escape this rats nest, I will.
So should you.
That works. Your way never has.
