HOW EMBARASSING: CHINA LANDS A ROVER ON THE MOON, WHILE OBAMA ORDERS NASA TO PERFORM OUTREACH TO MAKE MUSLIMS FEEL GOOD ABOUT THEMSELVES!
There is little or no doubt in my mind that President Obama and his cadre of progressive socialist democrats have done everything in their power to weaken the military power of the United States and those scientific institutions that keep our nation on the forefront of technology. We are living in a time when being black and/or a socialist ideologue trumps being competent. We have gutted our space capabilities in favor of promoting social programs that do little other than purchase votes for the progressive socialist democrats. Putting anything on the moon — or anywhere else in space form that matter — is not a trivial pursuit and requires a skilled and dedicated multi-disciplinary team working for years to achieve a singular successful launch.
NASA’s Muslim Outreach (July 7, 2010)
It’s not really surprising that President Obama told NASA administrator Charles Bolden that his highest priority should be “to find a way to reach out to the Muslim world and engage much more with dominantly Muslim nations to help them feel good about their historic contribution to science … and math and engineering.” It fits with so much that we already knew about the president.
How in the world would NASA help Muslim nations to “feel good” about themselves? Would NASA hold science fairs in Tripoli or Tehran? Produce and circulate propaganda films about Great Muslim Men (careful, never women) of Science? Stress our global debt to Muhammad ibn Musa al-Khwarizmi, the father of algebra? (That’s risky, since al-Khwarizmi reportedly learned his math from the Indians.) How would Obama’s NASA chief undertake to alter the civilizational self-esteem of a billion people? <Source>
I am not blaming Charlie Bolden, who is both black and competent, but President Obama’s leadership and the progressive socialist democrats in Congress who would rather see money siphoned off into social programs that can attract voters or fund additional progressive socialist democrat community organizations such as ACORN. One needs only to look at Chicago’s inner cities to know that progressive socialist democrats have turned the area into a cesspool of illiteracy, poverty, and worst of all crime, under their decades of governance. Why should we believe the progressive socialist democrats — essentially the Communist Party of the USA — can protect the safety and security of Americans
China successfully soft-lands probe on the moon (December 14, 2013)
BEIJING (AP) — China on Saturday successfully carried out the world’s first soft landing of a space probe on the moon in nearly four decades, state media said, the next stage in an ambitious space program that aims to eventually put a Chinese astronaut on the moon.
The unmanned Chang’e 3 lander, named after a mythical Chinese goddess of the moon, touched down on Earth’s nearest neighbor following a 12-minute landing process.
The probe carried a six-wheeled moon rover called “Yutu,” or “Jade Rabbit,” the goddess’ pet. After landing Saturday evening on a fairly flat, Earth-facing part of the moon, the rover was slated to separate from the Chang’e eight hours later and embark on a three-month scientific exploration.
China’s space program is an enormous source of pride for the country, the third to carry out a lunar soft landing – which does not damage the craft and the equipment it carries – after the United States and the former Soviet Union.
