Open Forum – Saturday

8 June 2019

This post is open to anyone to comment on any topic that isn’t spam, illegal or offensive. All Your NZ posts are open but this one is for you to raise topics that interest you, or you think may interest others.. 

If providing opinions on or summaries of other information also provide a link to that information. Bloggers are welcome to summarise and link to their posts. Comments worth more exposure may be repeated as posts. Comments from other forums can be repeated here, cut and paste is fine.

Your NZ is a mostly political and social issues blog but not limited to that, and views from anywhere on the political spectrum are welcome. Some ground rules:

  • If possible support arguments, news, points or opinions with links to sources and facts.
  • Please don’t post anything illegal, potentially defamatory or abusive.

FIRST TIME COMMENTERS: Due to abuse by a few, first comments under any ID will park in moderation until released (as soon as possible but it can sometimes take a while).

Sometimes comments will go into moderation or spam automatically due to mistyped ID, too many links (>4), or trigger text or other at risk criteria. If they pass muster they will be released as soon as possible (it can sometimes take hours).

    For all of the money we are spending, NASA should NOT be talking about going to the Moon – We did that 50 years ago. They should be focused on the much bigger things we are doing, including Mars (of which the Moon is a part), Defense and Science!

      He probably thinks that the sun orbits Earth, too.

        Nah, it’s just a typical Trump burble tweet. He means he thinks they should be talking about going to Mars, of which going back to rhe moon first was supposed to just be part of the process of proving & testing technologies in preparation for doing that.

          That should be done when Earth’s problems have been solved.

            Hard to put a date on that one, from a quick look at all the problems & shit still happening around the world that no one’s solving – least of all the useless & ineffective UN, endlessly hamstrung by the various veto-holding problem causers & problem enablers on the Security Council. Don’t think any country with a space programme is likely to wait for that.

              It’s a good thing that the people we see on the Save the Children and Medecins Sans Frontieres ads (the ones needing help, I mean) don’t know that postponing the ego trips into space could save millions of the earth’s inhabitants from starving to death or dying of preventable illnesses.

              I name those two because I have automatic payments going to them.

              Trump’s like the rooster who thought that the sun rose early so that it could hear him crow.
