I remember when I was a little boy, we did a moon launch and put a whole bunch of astronauts on the moon. Then we put up the Skylab space station and landed probes on Mars and sent Voyager out to space to fly past lots of planets and had the space shuttle program and launched telescopes and helped build the International Space Station.
Now, we ain’t put a man on the moon in 40 years and retired the space shuttles and don’t have anything to replace them with and have to pay the Russkies if we want to put men on the ISS.

It seems like politicians decided that it was more important for your tax dollars to pay for Gay Pride marches and sex change operations and educating illegal aliens and making sure those same wetback criminals got free medical care and foodstamps and giving free housing to Obama’s relatives and not making minorities get jobs and paying to arm the Arabs so that they could kill us and paying to arm the Jews so that they could fight the Arabs and protecting South American drug Lords so they could kill our kids with their products and then paying for drug rehab and “just say no” campaigns and giving free birth control to kids who got pregnant anyway and keeping thousands of people alive on death row because it ain’t politically correct to kill these murderers and rapists and voting themselves lots of raises and great health care (while not taking the same health care program they forced on us).
If’n you want to see our rockets flying again and watch our boys walk on Mars some day, I’d vote out the incumbents and find some folks who want to see progress instead of social programs.
Today’s Observation From Throckmorton P. Turdblossom: If the political correctness we got now existed in 1969, the Apollo 11 crew would have had one white, one black, one hispanic, one Oriental, one native American, half women, some gays, a convicted felon, a recovering alchoholic, a fat lady, a flat chested woman, a dwarf, and someone from every special interest group. They wouldn’t have had enough room for a pilot! There would have been so many people on board that they never would have lifted off with the weight. Don’t even imagine the fight they would have had to see who would have walked on the moon first!
