In this time of global chaos, with economic contraction, Radical Islam ascendant, a border on fire, and everything else going on in the world, what does establishment Republican Congressman Lamar Smith (San Antonio/Austin) think should be a top Congressional priority?!?
According to today's Dallas Morning News my former Congressman is serious about getting to the bottom of the threat posed to the United States from rogue Asteroids:
He noted that a large asteroid, Asteroid 2012 DA14, is also passing just 17,000 miles from Earth today, “less than the distance of a round trip from New York to Sydney.” And he announced that he’ll hold a hearing in coming weeks “to examine ways to better identify and address asteroids that pose a potential threat to Earth.”Never fear, dear reader, thanks to heroes like Congressman Lamar Smith, the brokest nation in history will:
continue to invest in systems that identify threatening asteroids and develop contingencies, if needed, to change the course of an asteroid headed toward Earth.Obviously, Congress needs to 'invest' in sharks with fickin' laser beams....
