Just a few things we can thank the space program for –

I guess we know what NASA will do next, after it lays off thousands of workers – reach out to the Muslim world.

The end of a glorious era – The last flight of the space shuttle

I watched the final lift off of the space shuttle this morning and cried.  This is the end of something that made us a great nation.  Just one more Obama failure and a failure to America.

I won’t mention the amount of jobs that are going to be lost because of this. You’re smart enough to already know that.

Obama to reporter: ‘Let me finish my answers’ next time

From USA Today/The Oval. This reporter from Dallas may never get another interview with the president, and judging by the bias in the MSM, he probably won’t get another job outside Texas, but he really put it to Obama in this one:

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Again H/t to my best friend in GA – He’s a real gem finding me all these great treasures!

Russia upping the ante for Americans to go into space

The last 2 sentences are the most important. With the Obama regime backing off the space industry, it’s time that private enterprise in this nation step in and do the job.

You know, this is getting old already. We are dependent on the Chinese for our debt. We are obligated to the turbulent Middle East for our energy and now we are begging rides to space from the Russians. WE ARE PAYING EVERYONE!

Feel like the butt of everyones jokes yet? The world is laughing at and mocking us!

From FoxNews.com:

NASA, already committed to paying Russia millions of dollars to hitch rides into space, had some expensive news to announce Monday: Russia plan to start charging even more.

With the United States phasing out the shuttle program, the new way for U.S. astronauts to get to the International Space Station will be to catch a ride with the Russians, and NASA’s existing contract for that transport priced each rocket ride at just under $56 million.

Now, Russia is hiking the price for each rocket ride to nearly $63 million in 2014. The contract extension with the Russian Space Agency totals $753 million, which covers trips for a dozen astronauts from 2014 through 2016.

Why such a price hike? NASA officials chalk it up to inflation.

NASA chief Charles Bolden says it’s critical for U.S. companies to take over this transportation job. The space shuttles used to do that job are being retired this summer.
