i am still far and away more supportive of funding things that are necessarily in the public domain (i.e. space program) over things that have almost no chance of ending up in the public domain (like weapons program research, even if the actual results are about 95% civilian-applicable). i am even more supportive of funding things that are purely for solving serious, civilian problems (i.e. medicine/energy/transportation/education/etc.) over the nearly negligible non-problems like military threats that are so overfunded currently and for the past ~60 years.

i mean, that's the thing... arguing that "___ research produced ___, therefore it was a good investment", while potentially a true statement (not always, as there is tons of shit attributed exclusively to defense research when it simply isn't the sole, or even the major, cause behind the results), is not the same thing as "this is the BEST place the money could be spent". that's my real issue. fairly basic economic principles suggest that money that was taxed is best used when spent back into the populace (even if solving no problem while doing so, at least it enters the circulation), but that doesn't mean that all spendings, including the ones with some inventive results, are equally useful.

I guess they aren't comfortable with their own folklore and history... I wonder if they'd feel better if the mural depicted them standing in front of Home Depot wearing San Antonio Spurs hats instead

Have they never heard of a siesta before?

Some of them aparently are so sensitive and defensive that they can't acknowledge that they come from a group of people that sometimes in their history wore funny hats and... *gasp* slept occasionally.
