I just talked to a Republican. He said, "All the technology we enjoy today; you can thank the Apollo program, and our missions to the Moon in the 1960's."
I asked, "You think some goob-mint program did all that?"
He said, "America's greatest moment was when Neil Armstrong planted the flag on the moon!"
I told him, "For every scientist and engineer at NASA there were at least a hundred scientists and engineers employed in the dreaded private sector."
The Republican said, "It does not matter."
