Obama Dismantles Manned-Space Program in 2011 Space Odyssey With Shuttle Atlantis' Final Mission So China Can Plant New Flag on Moon.·

July 22, 2011--
The landing of Space Shuttle Atlantis (yesterday) marked not only the previously-scheduled ending of the Shuttle program but also marked the beginning of Obama's indefinite dismantlement of America's manned-mission space program (except for astronaut passengers on other nations' rockets). Thus, the audacity of America exemplified by John F. Kennedy in 1961, when he said, "We go to the Moon ... not because it is easy but because it is hard" is now superseded by Obama's audacity: "We let the Chinese, the Russians, the Europeans and the Japanese pass us in manned-space-flight missions not because it is hard but because it is easy."
At a time when a unique form of government spending which has had a demonstrated ability to simultaneously boost our economy, accelerate our development of new technology, enhance our military capabilities, maintain the leadership of Liberty worldwide, and honor the pioneering spirit of America, Obama has deemed NASA's manned-space program a suitable candidate for the budgetary axe while seeking to almost infinitely expand redistribution-of-wealth social programs. The NASA human-exploration-of-space program made the entire economic pie bigger until politicians began shrinking it (way back in the late 1970's) to serve divide-the-pie social agendas over enlarge-the-pie programs.
We need to change the direction of the country radically, not marginally, because our compromise-with-the-left-at-every-turn approach has brought us to the edge of the leftist cataclysm, so we need to radically restructure our politics in order to return to what enabled us to lead the world economically, politically and militarily as the single best hope for liberty to ultimately triumph over tyranny. So please excuse the following nastalgia:
November 6, 2012 can't come soon enough.
