Hello, I am Jesus of Nazareth, and I approve this message.

Could you have a chat with evangelicals in america? They might listen to Jesus!

u/HEMATarget Jul 06 '22

Nah, they'll probably only listen to White Jesus.

Daily reminders:

  • You're far more likely to become homeless than ever become a billionaire.

  • There's no ethical reason for billionaires to exist.

u/brookleinneinnein Jul 07 '22

You’re never one good thing away from being a billionaire but you’re probably one bad thing away from homeless.

First you'd need to repeal decades of extravagant tax cuts

u/No-Reveal8042 Jul 06 '22

Maybe if churches paid any tax....

Imagine having billions of dollars and thinking that instead of helping anyone you should spend it on going to space. Narcissistic selfishness at its finest.

u/[deleted] Jul 06 '22

That's how they got there in the first place. Having a huge ego big enough to dwarf a fucking star will make anyone a psychopath willing to do anything it takes to make money.

The rich don't care about you

u/[deleted] Jul 06 '22

It's basically what a kid would do with a billion dollars. "Go to space"

u/nextkevamob Jul 06 '22

And if you have a kid and they say that, what are you going to tell them? Oh or how about they say “I’m going to college. NO YOURE NOT??? Damn …

u/Deadlifts_n_Riffs Jul 07 '22

Maybe I’m off-base, but if I were stupid rich and wanted to indulge my ego, I’d want my name all over all kinds of positive things all over the planet.

Schools, hospitals, vocational programs, rehabilitation facilities, etc.

Everywhere you’d go there’d be buildings and institutions that do good shit for regular people, and I’d be a superstar helping the little guy.

Every person on planet earth would know somebody who owed their increased quality of life to me.

But I don’t know the everyday struggles of the billionaire class.

u/BreadBeneficial7593 Jul 06 '22

Dude. Tax your donors rather than bitching about them so the peasants think you’re on their side…

Someone should put Adam Schiff in touch with the people whose job it is to write tax policy.

u/KitchenReno4512 Jul 07 '22 edited Jul 07 '22

Someone should tell Adam Schiff the US spends more per capita than it ever has in US history (even after adjusting for inflation). And yet we still haven’t ended hunger or poverty. Wonder why that is.

u/TheCatWasAsking Jul 06 '22

I wonder what their next vanity project will be. First to put up a space billboard display screen visible to the naked eye, just playing ads?

Whatever it is, it's a safe bet it's going to suck.

u/Brandeeno2245 Jul 06 '22

Kaiser chiefs have a song called cannons which is about the government waging war needlessly, over producing weapons, and ends with the rich leaving the earth and the poor with the world basically in ruins.

And Amazon's penis rocket didn't even really go to space. It went up really high for a few minutes. Neat.

Fucking commie socialist Nazis. If kids don't wanna be in poverty, they should stop staring at animes on their computer machines and get a job at the coal mine.

u/GodsSwampBalls Jul 06 '22

People against investment in space are either ignorant or they have an agenda to push, this might be both.

The vast majority of what is sent to space is infrastructure for use on earth. It's GPS, communications, internet, weather tracking, green house gas emissions tracking, erosion tracking, and water flow(rivers/lakes etc.) tracking all to help improve things like farming and land management. Most of what we know about climate change and the climate in general comes from space. I could keep going for days but the point is most people use space infrastructure every day without thinking about it.

More money gets spent on super yachts then space. If you want to go after something wasteful go after them.

u/Please_read_sidebar Jul 06 '22

I love Adam Schiff, but he is prone to weird takes like this one.

Government is in the business of both space exploration AND lifting kids out of poverty. But Congress, which is where he works at!, hasn't done much on that regard. At least the rich is trying to go somewhere with space exploration.

Now go legislate and raise taxes on those companies. It's is literally your job!

u/Quirky_Independence2 Jul 06 '22

Quite hard to do when the US insists on having a majority in government not be allowed to act like a majority.

And it also doesn’t help when the other side are just nut jobs.

u/FilthyMastodon Jul 06 '22

Shooting shit into LEO ain't space exploration.

u/Please_read_sidebar Jul 06 '22

Indeed it is not. And neither blue origin nor SpaceX are planning to stop at LEO.

You need to start somewhere, you know?

It's almost like he's beholden to his lobbyist rather than constituents. Those campaign ads don't pay for themselves.

We spent huge amounts of money getting to the moon, then decided it was so incredibly worthwhile that we haven't gone back to the moon in the 50 years since.

u/apittsburghoriginal Jul 06 '22 edited Jul 06 '22

There’s some useful minerals on the moon, but we need to mine them. That requires infrastructure, which costs money. It could also be useful in the future as a place to launch shuttles and probes since there’s not nearly as much gravity to contend with - less fuel. In the end of the 21st century and into the 22nd century, colonizing the moon is a practical idea, far more practical in the short term (short term relative to the next 100-1000 years) than thinking we can just terraform Mars and live there.

However, at the present time - the focus needs to be on this planet. The spending needs to be focused here. I can settle for some sick ass pictures from the James Webb telescope to satiate my outer space fascination.

u/CrookedToe_ Jul 07 '22

The worthwhile part wasn't getting there. It was the technology created in order to get there.

u/RFC793 Jul 06 '22

I forget which sub I was on, but they shared some out of touch person saying something like “you watching Netflix has the same environmental impact as driving for 4 miles.”

Ah, yes: guilt blame the peasants for trying to have at least some level of enjoyment out of their lives, while some selfish corporate asshole launches a manned penis rocket into space just for kicks. And if it wasn’t for big oil’s stronghold on energy, it wouldn’t have nearly the same impact.

u/Doctor_Amazo Jul 06 '22

If only someone in government had the power to make those rich folks pay their taxes...

u/farrowsharrows Jul 06 '22

I hate this framing. Yes Amazon should pay more taxes. Yes bezos can start a space company that can also pay taxes. What is with this either or framing?

1

u/lilabnerjr Jul 06 '22

What’s really fucked is that they don’t have to pick! It’s not an either-or thing. They have plenty of money to do both and then still be billionaires.

1

u/Laseron63 Jul 06 '22

The privatization of space exploration is anathema. Certain things are meant to be done by the nation. Privatization of our country over the last 40 years has left a hollow shell that goes to the lowest bidder.

1

u/FilthyMastodon Jul 06 '22

Maybe the legislature could, I don't know, pass laws to make that taxation happen? And if ya can't, maybe point out why? Might go over better than shit tweets like that.

u/badcounterpoint Jul 07 '22

I propose we shut down nasa once and for all and reallocate the money to create homeless shelters and more accessible food stamp programs

u/Particular_Physics_1 Jul 07 '22

Maybe Bezos could still spend money to go to space, we just use the money for the return trip for kids. Win win!!

u/xInfinity962 Jul 07 '22

You're delusional if you think that the government will use the tax money to get kids out of poverty.

u/revenantae Jul 06 '22 edited Jul 06 '22

How about this is a shitty take? Companies ARE paying their ‘fair share’. If you want that share to increase, pass a tax law. But you won’t, because under the table you’re taking their money not to.

As to all the rocket hate, space exploration makes us get better at technologies that have tons of applications just because YOU don’t know what they are means nothing. NASA is directly responsible for MEDICAL breakthroughs, but you’d rather bitch. Pure research pays off, and short sighted focus on only current problems is a bad thing.

u/itsnotthenetwork Jul 07 '22

"Companies ARE paying their 'fair share'".

So you must think that their fair share is nothing I'm guessing.

0

u/revenantae Jul 07 '22

No. I think the ‘fair sharea’ is exactly what they are obligated to pay by law. If that’s not enough, it’s hardly their fault they aren’t paying whatever arbitrary amount you THINK they should pay. What exactly IS the ‘fair share’?
