Go, jump on a trampoline: Russian deputy PM tells American astronauts following U.S. sanctions
Tech Times ^ | 5/1/14 | James Maynard

Dmitry Rogozin, the Russian deputy prime minister, told the United States they could "jump on a trampoline" to get to space.

Since the end of the Space Shuttle program in 2011, the United States has lacked any domestic means of sending humans to orbit. NASA has sent astronauts to the International Space Station (ISS) aboard Russian spacecraft since that time.

NASA may not be able to launch an astronaut into space, but at least they make Muslims feel good about themselves.

Bizarro world.

Agree to a point. There were many voting irregularities in key states like Fla and Ohio

I agree to a point, but was it enough to change the outcome, or are Americans getting what they voted for?

I’m just waiting to hear from the administration and their propagandists in the mainstream media about what a triumph this is for the American space program. Trampolines are the finest possible form of space travel, and our trampoline program is “working”.

The debate over the efficacy of using trampolines to get our astronauts into orbit is over.

The NEA has been educating the majority of Americans for many decades. Brainwashed heads full of mush, without a clue, voted for zer0.

More truth to your graphic than most realize.

To me, Obozo has been a groomed Communist Russian agent from way back via the Saudis.

Red grandparents, the influence of Frank Marshall Davis in more ways than one apparently, sponsorship of Bill Ayres, the cover provided by the radical Jeremiah Wright, and his supersonic ascent from Chicago community organizer to President of the United States in about 15 years all point to that.

The flexibility comment all but confirmed that also.

The two spys in that show were more enamored with capitalism than either of the two commies you picture.

Btw I love that show. Ollie North helped write some of the last few episodes.

Good, America shouldn’t have to hitch a ride with a second rate power. It is treasonous that we loss that ability and don’t have our own space capability.

NASA officials are saying they do not expect Moscow to cut off launch services for America, since Washington pays Moscow $60 million per astronaut send to the ISS.

I guess we will find out who is bluffing and who is not.

There are 2 Americans currently aboard the ISS.

This was all planned from the moment when Obama nixed our next generation space transport system. Everything is falling nicely into place for these xxxxxxxx.

And the show has written Ollie in (as a SEAL) loosely involving the Contras in most recent episodes. The show has the SEAL having been partially turned. I am not saying North was turned in any way.

Ollie wrote it he wasn’t in it. The seal was a faggot and so the KGB agents were blackmailing him.

Americans: This is kind of a lame end to the great Apollo program. But at least we aren't begging for ride.

Soviets: Just you wait. We have surprise for you later. He's in American college now.

They knew what they voted for. The flukes voted for free abortions and birth control. The homosexuals voted to legitimize their lifestyles. The unions voted for a government to cover for them while plundered the economy. And the EBT crowd voted for more bennies.

The school system and MSM are symptoms of a greater problem, namely the leftward swinging attitudes of Americans who are increasingly deciding to vote themselves other people's money.

It is the education system that primed the way by brainwashing these pukes into voting for Marxists

You honestly think this shift leftwards can be attributed solely to "the education system"? Or could it be the other way around, with the country's shift to the left causing more lefties in the education system?

I'll agree there has been leftist infiltration in that and the MSM, but they were lefties before they infiltrated the NEA and MSM.

More like Americans are abandoning the true God, and instead choosing the nanny state as their god.
