Space program        

I am all for the space program, both NASA and private entities that want to pursue it. The space program in general has greatly influenced the world in which we live today. Without the space program some of the things we use everyday would not exist today or at least not in the form that it does exist. Take television for instance. Before telecommunication satellites, a reporter would not be able to broadcast live images from the other side of the world. Another example would be GPS navigation. Do I think we need to try to mine asteroids or plan for colonies on Mars, no. But the space program does need to continue. Now as far as funding goes, cut the pork from other things to fund NASA. There is plenty of pork to cut.
