The problem with the mission is, the crew has to eat every half hour.

Without Bubba there would have been no launch.

He gave our missile secrets to China for a $300K contribution from the Loral Corp. CEO, and now they can shoot down satellites with it.

Nov 11, 1996 - Clinton issues executive order 12981 to gut export controls on encryption items and transfer export controls to the Department of Commmerce.

July 15, 2007 - Chinese DF-25 Missile Revealed for the first time (3-warhead MIRV medium range)

Clinton and company gave away the store.

When Senate hearings were held over one hundred Asian operatives or witnesses fled the nation rather than testify.

The Cox Committee report was released in 1999. It confirmed that China had stolen the neutron bomb design and the W-88 miniaturized warhead. The W-88 would allow China to field smaller, mobile missiles and carry multiple warheads on larger missiles. In addition, the Cox report proved that U.S. companies illegally transferred 'missile design information and know-how.'

The Clinton Legacy just keeps on giving.

Panama Canal, too, right? And I think a Chinese firm bought the assets of Global Crossing (the global fiber optics installer) for pennies on the dollar.

And wasn't silence deafening when Hong Kong was given back to China?

There are hot places in Hell, and there are the hottest places, for those especial connivers.

Oh whoop-dee-doo! Changes One contained a constellation of hits that blasted off decades before, right to the top of the charts, and they've been classics since.

“Fly dlice” is a reference to the name of the space vehicle, “Dlice”.
