If we are to avoid national bankruptcy, every sector of the behemoth in Washington must be scaled back to size, including even those few that pertain to legitimate functions of the federal government, such as defense. The Pentagon spends our money not only on a military whose might is squandered by left-wing ideologues opposed to America’s interests, but on lunacy like this:
In addition to $1.5 billion being spent on a plan to invent roll-up beef jerky, an iPhone app that helps people schedule their coffee breaks and scientific research on the swimming patterns of goldfish, was a workshop blending Christianity with the existence of aliens.
The event, entitled “Did Jesus Die for Klingons Too?,” focused on “the implications for Christianity if intelligent life were to be found on other planets.” According to the Global Post, actors such as LeVar Burton and Nichelle Nichols were present, and an “intergalactic gala celebration” was included, at which attendees were urged to don “starship cocktail attire.”
