Hopefully the rover will send back information I want to know. But seriously, what good will it really do for our f’d up society who for the most part still think the earth is six thousand years old and all life was magically placed here by an invisible guy in the sky and that we are the center of the universe?
If we discover that life can exist elsewhere in the universe (and why wouldn’t it) then what? If we ever advance to a point where it’s possible to travel to distant planets on which life exists; we will likely take their lands and steal their resources by declaring war. Oh yeah, I almost forgot, the christians will send missionaries to convert the new heathens, so what’s the point?
I see the cost for this endeavor, two and a half billion dollars, and I wonder how our government can spend that much to send a car to Mars when we can’t have decent health care for everyone or streets without homeless, hungry people. I think our collective priorities are out way of whack. We simply cannot afford it at this time (but nobody bothered to ask me). Sure it’s great, it’s groundbreaking, but so is that new 3D TV I’d like but won’t buy because I don’t have the money right now. I suppose it’s the American way from the top on down to the little guy who has to have the jet ski even though he’s in debt up to his eyeballs.

…for the following award. Check out this cool blog at The Seven Legged Express Journey. They do some very cute cartoons. I hope you guys at Seven Legged Express are reading this. I tried to post a thank you on your blog, but like many WordPress blogs I’ve posted comments on it did not show up. I think WordPress is aware of this issue because I’ve heard others mention it (and I’ve contacted them). Commenting seems to be hit or miss, sometimes they show up after you write them, sometimes you are notified they are being held for moderation, and other times they simply vanish into cyberspace. WordPress, please FIX this issue.
