The government has done absolutely nothing inspirational (IMO) in terms of space travel itself since going to the Moon. So I have no interest in reading a 300 page report about how we can't do something.

The visionaries (e.g. Elon Musk) may succeed or fail in colonizing Mars, but personally, I want them to try.

What do you mean? How is the post misleading?

These types of advertising and PR are 100% fantasy and wishful thinking, and 0% practicality and reality.

It's easy to throw out claims of planning for a Mars colony or moon base, but it will get no further than that. Might as well wake up to that reality.

All you have to do is track all the claims over the decades in this area, and see how none have panned out. None have even really gotten "out of the gate".

Exactly. There have been plans about sending humans to Mars since the 1970's.
