Definitely a great vacation spot. Although I can't remember ever hearing on the news or, well anywhere for that fact, how Yellowstone or any other National park is so profitable, that it has paid for its self over and over.

Perhaps you don't understand what the word investment really means
I stand by my statement, that the United States Federal Government, are the worst investors in the world. Proof you say? Lets say it together, Seventeen and a half TRILLION, yes TRILLION dollars in debt. The guy that does invest in Skyscrapers, Larry Silverstein, worth Billions. So you see, the Government would never invest in stuff like Skyscrapers in the first place, too much potential money to be made

That's actually kind of funny since if something happens to them, at this point, we will have to rely on another Country(Russia ) to repair them since your beloved Government completely gutted NASA. And how can you consider putting Satellites into space profitable, if we are using them free of charge? You really have no idea do you? Once upon a time, the Government worked for the people, and not for themselves or money. Your obviously too young to remember those times so I suspect that any conversation about NOT needing the Government to get through ones life, would be like....well, pissing in the wind

There are three other alternatives to GPS so you're welcome to switch.

Or you can wait until the EU finishes their constellation next year, and use theirs (which will be more accurate).

So, you know... poor example.

NASA's budget has remained the same (adjusted) for the past forty years. The only thing that has fallen is its share of the federal budget, which is understandable considering you don't need to hire 300,000 engineers and mathematicians anymore to do the work of one supercomputer (this is actually true).

'Gutted NASA' is a completely untrue statement.

Yeah, just use a different satellite system being built by a different government...fun argument!
