All loads of bull schmidt there Hillinger. Government did none of that. Private companies funded with tax dollars from the public developed those this you speak of so in essence, we built them, not the government. Government has the force of taxation behind it so it can fund things on a whim. If business could just take money from people for R&D, just think the things that would come about but as it is, the government takes the money and spends it on worthless projects like light rail, green energy, etc. that benefit no one.
