I was typing the title as "Obama's Mission to Mars" but my little finger strayed too far! LOL I hit the "Enter" key instead of the "apostrophe".
Anyway, the article illustrates, once again, Obama's agenda to mainstream Islam into American society.
I just thought it's just like Obama to make the NASA program diminutive. It used to be about reaching the stars. Now it's about encouraging math and science and reaching out to muslims where half the people are illiterate. It's just plain stupid.
I am not a fan of Obama necessarily, however:
- Why are you calling for a large NASA budget when your economy is in the tank?
- "encouraging math and science" is bad now, is it?
"just plain stupid" apparently. I know why Brenda hates to see anyone getting an education, but I am not sure about this one.
Education levels are inversely proportional to church attendance. She may be feeling lonely.
The NASA program is one of our foremost technological programs where we continue to develop new technologies and engineering that ultimately benefit everyone. It is an investment on our future.
Encouraging math and science programs...uh, yeah we think it should be part the educational programs not NASA.
Don't your two paragraphs contradict each other in some sense
Not if you know what NASA is for and what an education program is for.
Do you support increasing the education budget for math and science?
Are you being intentionally thick? Do you not understand that there are separate budgets for various goals?
How am I being rude to you by asking a question? Are you threatening me?
Sounds to me like that IS what he is doing.
Ever notice that when anything exposing Obama's agenda (or even questioning it) is put in front of them, the Leftists get very hyper and aggressive?
Oh please, not much of what they have to say is of any interest, fairly predictible and I rarely bother.
I thought you were against space travel in any case - because it is "just atheists trying escape God's Wrath!!! when Jesus Comes to Judge us!!!." No?
You seem to feel that you have the right to polute the forums with your hateful nonsense (you do) but the other side (fact-based) should not be heard.
You have more in common with Communists than you realize.
You're very defensive today Ron. And there I was trying to not fight.
Feel free to add some of those "fact-based" items you referred to to this discussion, instead of turning into a personal attack thread.
Brenda, if you're being personally attacked, just report them and move on. I doubt that they'll be convinced of anything when you respond with your point of view.
It does no good for me to report them! The mods ignore me, or at least they have the few times I reported anyone (and one was an indirect death threat).
So I just take 'em on when I feel like it; and if I don't, I just ignore them. They hate that.
Well the mods do determine who has crossed the line. Sometimes, I think that certain hubbers have responded like that so often that the mod haves extendted the line way out in Mars for them just so they're not exhausted
yep. They're making them astronauts to Mars! Obama will let 'em ride in one of the shuttles I bet! Mars will be colonized by Leftists. Hey, that's cool. Then they can start their own Constitution from scratch and leave ours alone!
And Obama can live there and be the god of Mars! LOL
From your mouth to God's ears, although I have a feeling they'll sneak back to earth because their planet will be broke!
by that time we'll have someone better in office.
At least I hope. hmm....wonder what the time difference is between earth and Mars?
What? Do you think God talks to His people after all? I thought you didn't believe.
But YOU do. Are you losing faith? According to Rod Parsley, it can be restored for a nominal fee
I haven't listened much to Parsley for years, ever since I saw him going off onto a tangent that veered from good ol' Gospel preaching. Once in a while I watch him for just a few minutes; then I get bored because of what I just said. He's become more like the run-of-the-mill name-it-claim-iters....
Have you been listening to him? 'Fess up now Ron. Is listening to Christian preachers your secret pasttime?
And all of them along with Obama will come back to earth and turn old and gray as they enter the atmosphere.
Bill Clinton will decide to stay on Mars. He sneaked Monica Lewinsky into the shuttle's baggage compartment.
Where did you see a personal attack? As always, I assume that you are OK personally, but are often used by GlennBeck, RodParsley et al as a channel for their venom.
And I wonder if his agenda is why the last rocket flight was done by a privately-hired group instead of NASA?
I smell a payoff. It's the chicago way. He might be giving this group a leg up on the engineering information so that they can develop products without having to pay for the research.
This is not the Chicago way, in particular. It is just about EVERY politican's way; the vast majority of them are hand-in-glove with Big Business -- and it is THIS fact that is the REAL threat to America and its democracy, and not some half-baked idea about Muslims...
It's the Chicago way because that's where Obama's political ties are from. It's not unusual for Big Business and the fed to work together, but it has be transparent. Something that Obama always promises but never delivers.
I don't doubt that Obama has broken many of his promises. But why don't you point the finger at BOTH parties -- they are both as corrupt as each other.
The Catch 22 is that if you disagree with the premise of the article, then you could sound racist, or something similar. The mission of NASA is about exploring the universe, not public relations with another country or culture. Any public relations for NASA should be about cooperation and collaboration in space technology.
I am all for improving international relations, human rights, education, etc., with any country and the US, but I don't see that it's NASA's job to get involved in it.
Obama's premise to the NASA chief seems very mis-guided at best, and it smacks of favoritism toward one group of people, instead of being inclusive of many/all groups.
Well there are endless hubbers who will have no problem accusing people of being racists. It's what they normally do anyway.
We already work with other nations in space science! Believe it or not, there are smart Muslim people. Do not judge the intelligence of all Muslims by those you see involved with terrorism.
Just as I hope other countries do not judge us by some of the rabid members of the extreme right!
I'm aware that the US works with several countries in the space program. I'm absolutely all for it. I'm also completely aware that Muslim people hold a vast amount of wealth and knowledge in many, many areas. They have great power. However, Obama seems to indicate that NASA's responsibility it to "repair" relations with the Muslim world. I don't think that has much to do with science. Perhaps the better way for the directive to be worded is to "invite collaboration and cooperation in the field of science with Arabic nations, and others who are prepared to discuss such possibilities..."
Hell, if we could engage Iran in productive conversations about space, it may take a LOT of tension from that very tedious relationship!
Misguided is the least of it. This will set space exploration back for a good while.
The Muslim culture recognized the world was round long before the christians. Another goofy thread attempting to spin nothing into something. What do you expect from Faux News watchers?
Brenda, this downsizing of NASA is really a major disappointment. There were so many great things that were happening in terms of exploration that they had in the pipeline.
I've never been one to back space exploration much, but yes I'm disappointed that America's interests regarding that are now under the thumb of a man who openly does NOT have America's interests at heart.
What evidence do you have that supports your claim? I'm curious.
It seems you are more prejudiced against Muslims because they aren't Christians. Because that's what the evidence of your posts in the forums adds up to.
He has two more years to go, what else is he going to dismantle? And I want to know why there are no NASA supporters in Congress on both sides of the aisle fighting for it.
I wonder too.
Maybe they're too distracted by all the other foolish bills they're having to consider.
People actually have a problem with this?
I think it's great!
Inspiring kids to want to explore and learn...rather than "contemplate our worthlessness" as so many preachers insist we do.
And Hooray to reaching out to muslims! They have been the scapegoat for all the worlds ills since Bushco came to town with their false flag terrorism. Creating terrorism with their policies. Dumb idiots.
The old ways are gone....in case you missed it. Kids today are not the homophobic, bigoted small-minded people of America's recent past. They are WAY past all that crap.
But I will say this; Weidner is a conspiracy researcher and he says the elite are planning an escape to Mars before the solar flare hits earth...maybe he would say they are doing this to facilitate that!
Either way, leave it to dinosaurs to find a way to bash Obama in every move he makes....
hahahaha. Thought you all had perished with the last asteroid???
"Watch out for that Tyrannisaurus!!! It's got a BIG mouth!!!"
Nah, the old ways aren't gone.
Those impressionable kids' minds are just being temporarily buried under the stomping foot of heterophobia and other liberalisms.
Why anyone would, like you, take delight in the perverting of young minds is beyond me.
But hey, I now am FOR the space program fully if it will take all you liberals to Mars to live there! Just please leave the children here so they can be taught what's right.
All the griping about downsizing NASA comes from those for less government control! What do they have against private space exploration by commercial companies? I doubt they would like it if the aviation industry was completely run by the government like they want the space program to be.
How many of these complainers voted for Dumbya twice and for McCain and Palin last election? They can't get the taste of sour grapes out of their mouths it seems. I love it when they hate it!
I think NASA should be downsized and the logical place for space exploration is in the private sector.
I didn't vote for Bush at all but I did vote for McCain, the alternative was in my opinion not a good choice.
I was under the impression that ending the shuttle program was partly to do with the age of the shuttles. Also, that they were going to invest more in looking to reaching Mars?
I can see a good reason for NASA to train people in math and science would be to encourage more to be astronauts.

OK. I think I've just developed a pet peeve. I'm so tired of seeing perfectly intelligent people use "your" when they mean "you're". I've read three articles today and "your" has reared its ugly head in all of them. I'm not normally so picky, but this is a real...

Will the U.S. ever be tops in math and science?Having lived in Southeast Asia I've seen how non-American youth essentially enter the world being prepped for college; and from a very young age they learn and study intensely, even controversially. But it seems to pay off for them, often right here in...
