Social justice trumps social justice
When the progressives allocate more of our precious limited resources to social justice programs there is little (or nothing) left for the things that made this country great like the technology of space exploration.
The progressives do not seem to understand that their resource allocation machinations are a zero-sum game.
When they allocate more of those limited resources to new social justice programs such as expanded food stamps and Obamacare there is less available for the older programs like social security and Medicare. The newer programs trump the older ones because you cannot have the same amount of both.
If one could stand back and look dispassionately at what is happening now, it would be quite funny if it was not so tragic.
