“NASA spends between $400,000 and $1.3 million on a party at every shuttle launch, according to CBS. Select personnel are treated to 5 days at a 4 star hotel. This year alone, they’ve spent $4 million on parties. NASA asked for, and was given, $1 billion more from the Senate this year. NASA proponents argue it makes more sense to give money to talented, productive people in exchange for scientific knowledge, than spend it on unproductive people in the form of straight welfare.”
I wonder if they have any photos of James Hansen dancing with a lampshade on his head? I also wonder if NASA GISS ever gets invited at all? I wonder if Gore throws GISS a party every time a new paper comes out?
I’ve got nothing against perks, but it does seem a bit excessive, 4 days in a 5 star hotel.
Gee, just think of what a few determined individuals could do with a fraction of that money.
