    End of the dream.



    With the shuttle so ends Americans in space. What a pipe dream to even think that we could continue in any capacity with the enormous debt we've racked up.

    So much for the stupid liberal Star Trek pipe dream. We never got beyond the moon, no star ships, no klingons, no vulcans....just a stupid waste of money throwing a dump truck into low earth orbit.

    Direct Spending Cost of the Iraq War: $757.8B

    Total NASA Budget (adjusted for inflation), 1958-2011: $790.0B

    Not to mention that the shuttle program is ending ... but NASA's budget is still the same, roughly $19.0B this year.

    Just think - if we didn't invade Iraq, we could have funded the space program for the next 50 years.

    Actually that's the "conservative" position, just turn all governmental function over to the private sector.
