Help humans first, by Michael Levy, Ft. Lauderdale. FL<br><br>What kind of people would give scientists $333 million to send one raocket into space so that it can smash into a comet 82million miles away, while 30,000 people a day die in Africa from poverty?<br><br>Is it more important to get bits of information on Earth's creation than to help the 45 million Americans without medical insurance?Maybe there would be far fewer deaths from poverty, illness and malnutrition if, instead of probing inside a comet, scientists and politicians find compassion for ALL the people living on planet Earth.<br><br>--------> my 2 cents on that is as long as funds are given to dido heads from the childlike isolationist, god pushing, leaders; humans will bear the brunt of the epirical greed, indeed. As shall the Earth lash out against it's inhabitants. Crazy right? So obviously true, oh and the rapture is for quitters.<br><br><br>-----------------------------------------------------------<br><br>China makes inroads, by Reginald F. Nicholson<br><br>Does anyone find it a bit ironic that a state owned corporation in China is about to purchase a publicly owned U.S. company? Karl Marx must be laughing in his grave. I guess this is what the politicians call free trade. <br><br>-------> my 2 cents is a big 'TOLD YA SO.', ya know who you are, or are not... ; )<br>Nuff said.<br><br>
Dido:<br>1. A mischievous prank or antic; a caper<br>2. (Roman mythology) a princess of Tyre who was the founder and queen of Carthage; Virgil tells of her suicide when she was abandoned by Aeneas<br><br>I can only assume you didn't mean #2. So we're giving money to practical jokers, and the result of shooting a hole in a comet is going to be "Ha, Ha, fooled you".<br><br>And pumping $333million into Africa is still going to result in 30K deaths per day. The African problem isn't money, it's the pety thugs that keep the peoples of africa in poverty and starvation and fear.<br><br><br><br>We all do what we do for the same reason: because it seems like a good idea at the time.
