All the News That's Fit to be Tied

I have an axe to grind, but unlike the New York Times, I freely admit it.

Is Obama Lost in Space?

As many people are saying lately: You can't make this stuff up. In a recent interview with al-Jazzera marking the one year anniversary of President Obama's Cairo speech, NASA Administrator Charles Bolden has stated that "reaching out to Muslims" is now a prime responsibility of the space agency. NASA will no longer boldly step into the future. Now it will help "Muslim nations feel good about their historic contribution to science, math, and engineering." Under Bolden and Obama NASA will no longer be a can-do agency. Instead of reaching for the stars, developing new technologies and leading the way into the future, NASA will become a vehicle for leading America to third-world dependence. Instead of leading the world into a bright future we will go willingly onto the path of a new dark age of mediocrity brought about by those who despise freedom and independence. By those who think that plantation living is preferable to independent living. By those who think we must be led like livestock. By those who think we cannot think for ourselves. It is they, Obama and Bolden among them, who are truly lost in space.
