To Mr. Cleland’s Dec. 16 suggestion of cutting foreign aid, I would also make huge whacks in NASA’s budget.
A government claiming that it can no longer provide a quality life for its people shouldn’t be cavorting about the galaxy, collecting star dust samples and radio signals from Star XP-27 in Androimeda. After all it’s only 250 million years away.
Second, immediately cease conducting multiple wars without paying for them while enacting huge tax cuts in the midst thereof.
Third, let the government cut all welfare to the rich, i.e. stop all taxpayer give-aways to big oil and millionaire landowners who collect “Mohair” subsidies.
Taxpayers also fund billions in research and development (R&D) which the power structure hands over to the corporate-tocracy and big pharma for little or nothing.
The people who support these programs would be the first to complain about waste and mismanagement in school lunch programs.
With all the waste and fraud going on 24-7, Heaven forbid that a child in America might get a school lunch.
