I would rather give my money to Strong Bad than Sanders:


Bernie said he had a better idea than SpaceX.

Throwing good money at bad programs?

Raleigh, Not Cool. Heh.

Does Bernie even know about SpaceX? Asking as a Starship fan.

I cannot find any comments by Sanders about SpaceX, just him supporting NASA, but wanting to take care of Earth needs first.

That does not sound like supporting NASA.

"We will absolutely generously fund NASA--as soon as we have welfare for all, medicare for all, ended global warming..."

I found this:
Quote:
The immense taxes that the Green New Deal and Medicare for all would need would fall heaviest on firms such as SpaceX and Blue Origin. Little money would be left over to fund private space exploration.

Why? Aren't they still in the prototype stage? I would be all for taxing Elio heavily, but why?

I'd worry more if it was likely to happen.

Agree with you.....TOTALLY. The rich take TOTALLY everything from the poor classes & its gone AND much from the middle class & its gone. Then, the rich say they're not rich enough. Rooster is very close to the rich to hear them....... crow.

...yes, exactly. I've seen it with my own eyes. When "the rich" spend money to purchase something, that money bursts into flames the moment it reaches others hands, never to be spent again. Wealth is a static pie that exists for a moment and is gone forever.

Man, that piano is still slow at 2x. I bailed at 4 minutes because I could scrub the timeline and see there are no Ferraris. How can you have a video about car fires and not have a Ferrari?

Can you say 'insurance fraud'?

EasyListeningSong, I am not going to bother quoting your trolling from #65. I just hope that your parents take away your Internet access soon.

Speaking of trolls, the POTUS signed something before going on a tirade. After a bunch of abstract nonsense I found
Quote:
Azar said those steps including lowering costs in Medicare Advantage, allowing those beneficiaries to create savings accounts and accelerating access to the latest medical technologies after being approved by regulators.
CNBC: Trump signs executive order on Medicare, says he won't let Democrats steal your health care.
https://www.cnbc.com/2019/10/03/trum...r-seniors.html

Potentially good? A step in the right direction?
