The Gallagher Stimulus Plan: NASA Slams $79 Million Into the Moon

Smashing Our Way to Solvency

Smashing Our Way to Solvency

Can someone please explain what the purpose of this morning’s NASA mission is to me?

Did we really need to slam two rockets, supposedly worth 79 million dollars, into the side of the moon?

Are you guys f@$%in’ kidding me?

What’s next?  Should we drop a million bucks worth of flat screen TV’s off a bridge to see how they shatter?

This morning’s 3rd grade prank-calibur experiment would give you the impression that money ain’t a thing.  As the national debt exceeds 11 trillion, I’m amazed that no one was smart enough to have maybe put this project on hold for a few years so that we can dig ourselves out this grave with a little dignity.

Hope it was worth it, NASA.  Maybe next time you could scale back the scope of these types of juvenile fantasies and build a paper mache volcano instead.

    I would have rather seen Gallagher given that money to go out on tour again.
