NBC tom Brokaw" Gov got us to the moon"
 
Did you hear what Tom said at the end of Mitt's speech?
Mr Rommy was praising the drive to get us to the moon and
Tom wanted to point out it was a Gov program.
Really, you think that's what you want to fight over.
B. Obama got us to the Moon?
All the networks talked over the GBA.
Except FOX. Chris Wallace was pretty spot on to just shut up.
Sharpton sounded like and Fool

Clint did mighty fine.

Got to go calm down.
Rommy's going to win big

yes, govt can make all sorts of things happen with enough coercion and enough money. And?

#3 Big Foot 48 Aug 30, 2012 10:56 PM

Brokaw is another liberal who infested the alphabet networks forever.

Who paid for the government effort to get men on the moon?

I flipped through the channels tonight right after the speech.
Could not believe the Media Bias that CNN NBC MS..CBS
and what people were saying. Just shilling for the Obama.
How can you compare the two,
Can't wait for the debates

Are you really sure it's everyone else who is biased?

#8 SPEED-E-FLYER Aug 30, 2012 11:47 PM

Don't know what you need for proof of Bias, but from what I've heard tonight, Yes, and if you heard tonight broadcast from each of the channels right after the speech you would know what I'm talking about. Now unless you heard some of the remarks and would like to comment that would be great, but don't impugn that maybe it's me thats really Bias:rolleyes: How Clever are you:p

The budget was arrived at by democratically elected representatives of the people. Tax revenues were allotted accordingly.

That's how we do in modern civilized societies.

Ok so we went to the moon. It proves the State can do big things.

And?

Totally baffled why there is even an issue/question over this. President Kennedy challenged the nation to send a man to the moon and return him safely before that decade was completed. We went not because it was easy, but it was hard. Far too complex/expensive for any privately-funded enterprise to accomplish such an ambitious task so the government "built it".

Mission Accomplished.

RIP Neil Armstrong (1930-2012)

The government, with our tax dollars. If it had been up to the people, or private companies alone, it never would have happened.

The moon shots were prohibitively expensive and a cold war gesture - neither is feasible today!

That's debatable. IMO, we would have made it later than 1969, but we would have made it.

1. Establish a space station like most everyone in NASA wanted to do originally, until Kennedy hijacked the space program for political gain. Not one like we have now, but a true way station in space.

2. Use it to go to the moon. Don't throw away most of the space vehicle, but re-use a dedicated space capable vehicle to shuttle back and forth to the moon, etc. Build more than one to prevent an Apollo 13 type mishap from killing the crew.
