NASA's Budget (part 1)

Go Back

The President's Budget Request kicks off the yearly budget season in United States. It takes a year to put together, and Congress plays no part. Why is that? Why is it so important? Who's responsible?

Politicks.

More concisely, the politics engaged in to acquire or preserve interests of power and influence that are depressingly personal, parochial or provincial at the expense of any greater good for the benefit of all humankind.

It is especially galling that attempts to access the means of acquiring undreamed profit and security for all into a potentially unlimited future for humanity and the very survival of our world is so systematically derailed by those already in a position of power and influence who imagine they can own all of it for themselves. Never, ever, let it be said that these corporate captains know best how to deliver top dividends to their investors which they have brainwashed into thinking they have their best 'bottom-line' interests foremost in mind.
