Scott Morrison Thinks Trump + Mars = The Best Selling Show.

Once again Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison has said and done things that I don’t fully comprehend.

ABC News reports…

“The Prime Minister was at NASA to announce his Government will spend $150 million over five years to help Australian businesses get involved in America’s planned mission to the Moon and then Mars.”

OK. But how? I’ve read this article three times and I still can’t figure out what the $150m of Australian taxpayer money is actually buying.

“Mr Morrison said the money could help Australian businesses support US automation systems, build equipment for space craft or play a role in minerals exploration.”

Could is the operative here. Could means not even Prime Minister Numpty knows exactly where this money is going or what its actually going to be used for.

Great.

Scott Morrison - Numpty McFuckFace
Prime Minister Numpty – “I’m sure Trump is as good as his word.

Also, fuck Mars. Let’s get things working on this planet first.

For starters that $150m could be better spent here in Australia solving the country’s water crisis. For those of you that may be unaware, Australia is currently in the throes of one of the worst droughts on record.

Red = Bad. Much red. Much bad.

On the ground, in real terms, it looks like this…

That $150m would go a long way to assisting the country’s farmers produce the food we need to eat in order to fucking live. Or if that doesn’t tickle your fancy you could always use it to tackle the country’s recycling crisis.

Or our homelessness epidemic.

Or help boost the struggling mental health sector.

Maybe even, heaven forbid, used it to fix the broken public school system.

Or our underfunded public hospitals.

The possibilities are endless!

But sure, Mars and vague assurances are good ideas too.

¯\_(ツ)_/¯
