"witch hunt" is a pretty catchy buzzword these days.
But tto your point, of the general public too busy to turn off the hulu movie... which they're watching on cell phones COMPLETELY ENABLED by technology that is the direct result of NASA funding and government support of science. My point was that pretending all NASA does is make a guy walk on the moon for science cred is foolishly overlooking the benefit that it's created.
I was just clarifying your point and i'm still not sure, but I think you're saying that the general public is ignorantly unaware of the importance of science in general and NASA specifically, and that you're "amazed that NASA still has funding." because you are surprised that general public ignorance hasn't carried through to defund scientific programs against their own interests because they don't understand the benefits?
