At this point are any of you really shocked? When is Obama going to order NASA to outreach to predominately Catholic, Muslim, Hindu countries since he is focusing on religion?

Does that mean we will have the Iranian space program as advisors?
The only way for NASA to reach out to those countries would be nuke them from orbit. Its the only way to be sure.

Reminds me of the old Star Trek joke.

Why are there no Arabs on board the Enterprise?

Sir, it’s the future.

Why not see how long a Muslim can live in space without oxygen? That might be interesting.

Shouldn’t NASA be reaching out to other worlds, rather than being the diplomatic equivalent of a pony ride? If scientists in other countries want to do research with NASA, let them present a proposal and have them do research. If they want a thrill ride, let them go to Disney World.

How about we include two or three Muzzies on the next Shuttle mission, and neglect to inspect their baggage.

Obama has canceled a mission to the moon which has no air to breathe, hundreds of degrees during the day and hundreds below zero at night. Instead NASA will have to reach out to Muslim countries, which have an even more hostile environment than the moon.

He’s using NASA as a propaganda arm to support his goofy AGW stance.

It will probably also have the benefit of funneling high technology to hostile foreign regimes or more of his union cronies.

But wait! You haven't heard the entire joke yet!

Hillary Clinton
Remarks at the U.S.-Islamic World Forum
Doha, Qatar
February 14, 2010

President Obama and I believe that education and innovation are the currency of this century. That's why he announced a new era of engagement with Muslim communities to expand educational opportunities, support entrepreneurs, and promote advances in science and technology.

Our goal is to identify excellent ideas and successful projects in Muslim communities and then invest in them, help to scale them up, and to connect innovators and entrepreneurs, so that they can support and enhance each other's work.

We are creating a Global Technology and Innovation Fund, which we will launch this spring, that will provide hundreds of millions of dollars in capital to small and medium-sized businesses throughout the Middle East, Asia, and Africa . . .

We have to continue to expand and strengthen outreach to students. And that is why we have increased funding for educational exchange programs for Muslim students. NASA, our space program, has partnered with the Arab Youth Venture Foundation in Dubai to give Arab and American engineering students the chance to work together on NASA missions.

It's part of his ‘redistribution’ conduit - using our tax monies to funnel our money to the Muslims - This is will cost thousands of Americans their jobs.

It's been his goal for decades. This is a tenet of the Black Liberation Churches - one of which he sat in for 20 years.

It's a movement he telegraphed loud and clear during the campaign - but he got elected anyway.

Why is there anyone in this country who should be shocked or surprised?

He has taken the crown jewel of American technology and single handedly destroyed it. We’ve always had domestic problems and somehow managed to remain superior to all with our manned space program. This is very sad and 2012 can’t come soon enough.

and THAT. folks, is the ultimate and irretrievable “redistribution” of money out of OUR pockets to the mooseSlimes around the world - while, at the same time, giving them all the technology needed to further their goal of reinstating the Caliphate - and eliminating all us Infidels.

This is getting more frightening every day.
