I have to admit that the last landing of the shuttle Discovery was a sad moment for me, an exclamation point on America's -- or at least American government's -- retreat from greatness. As a child of the 1950s, one of the many kids who grew up on science fiction, the space program was dear to me and my friends. But I guess outreach to the Islamic nations is an important mission, especially if you have the IQ of a land slug.
I propose a new mission for NASA, one ideally suited to our reduced stature in the world...I say let NASA field a mission to the Mexican trucking industry,, helping them in their mission to destroy yet another American industry and make the roads even more terrifying than they already are. That way, NASA can hang on to more of their heritage, and once again we can hear those stirring words, "Houston, we have a problem..."
I note that the Jolly Pirates Club of the BATFE can no longer keep a lid on the "gunwalker" scandal. I have to admit that I was wrong...here WAS an "Iron River" flowing south into Mexico since 2008...I just didn't realize it was being controlled from the Jolly Pirates Club offices in Phoenix.
