How many offensive typos must we suffer before Congress is convinced to act?

Wow, you're old!

Yes it is stupid, but that isn't what it is saying at all.

Yes, I understand that's not the (idiotic) message they wanted to get across but it's a better reflection of what they actually put in the picture.

All 5 items on the L are consumer goods. Except for the space shuttle (which is not a consumer good either), the other 4 items on the R represent services, not goods.

They also represent things with minimal room for technological advancement period, unlike a gigantic wealth of other actual technological advancements the government has made.

Just change the pictures on the left to a waiter, a taxi driver, a customer service rep, a fry cook, an airline pilot... that's a better comparison.

I get better service and web presence from my liquor stores, owned and operated by my province, than my airlines, which are private companies.
Gagarin flew into space in 1961. The Ansari X prize was won 9 years ago.

Sometimes, government investment works best (ie: long range, not obviously commercializable things), other times, its private industry (toys)

Government sector is not 50% of the economy, and yes, there have been numerous innovations in government especially in the defense sector.

Hey, there's been a lot of government innovation in the last thirty years. It spends twice as much per student on K-12 education, for example. You have universal kindergarten, which prepares kids for elementary school, and soon universal pre-kindergarten, to prepare kids for preparing them for school...
