Comment on Obama: Space program a necessity, not a luxury

Space exploration IS a luxury when ...
your country is in the middle of an economic depression,
you've let bankers steal trillions of dollars from the treasury,
you've declared universal healthcare an impossibility,
you have citizens living in tent cities,
millions of unemployed,
and an ecological disaster of unknown proportions that is threatening the livelihood of entire areas of your country.
