Missing The Message

Missing The Message

Now that the Nobel Prizewinning President Barack Obama—who campaigned for the White House on fervent opposition to two wars—is leading the United States into a third conflict involving the “Religion of Peace,” perhaps this isn’t the best time to bring this up.  However, timing has never been my strong suit.

While the U.S. started lobbing cruise missiles into Libya over the weekend, another story, one which didn’t involve the Obama Administration campaigning for the Nobel Prize for Duplicity, broke across the newswires:

For the first time in human history an object sent from the third rock from the sun has entered orbit around the first rock from the sun.  The MErcury Surface, Space ENvironment, GEochemistry and Ranging (MESSENGER) probe, which departed these climes in 2004, signaled its successful orbital insertion around the planet Mercury. 

mercurysunThis is Mercury as viewed from the Earth.  Actually, this is the Sun, with Mercury in transit across its face (it’s the TINY round dot in the lower middle-right of the image.)

If nothing else, that image ought to give you a sense of humility; a glimpse of the idea that on a cosmic scale, we are smaller than the higher-order thinking section of Lawrence O’Donnell’s brain.

MESSENGER cost $280 million.  Should it have been proposed for these tight economic times I suspect it would have disappeared from the budget as quickly as a box of Ho Hos® disappears from Rosie O’Donnell’s kitchen.  But consider this: I’m glad we went. 

While it is fair to suggest that a mission to Mercury may not solve the crises of the world, I would posit that MESSENGER, like much of the space program, serves a metaphysical purpose.

The space program reminds us of limitlessness.  Seven centuries ago civilization was barely aware of the world outside its own door.  In some cases, even guessing at the unseen could result in ridicule, arrest, or even earthly perdition.  But some were undeterred, and the Age of Exploration bore out their dreams to the great benefit of the same world which questioned their goals.  As recently as 1969, when Neil Armstrong took those fateful first steps, Man was still reaching beyond his grasp. 

From Polo to Galileo to Aldrin, the real explorers delivered human “firsts” on an eternal scale.  And while MESSENGER was expensive, it’s another first which is worth celebrating. 

In the age of the media-invented superstars, in which Paris Hilton and Barack Obama can climb to Olympian heights on the backs of—not to mention in the rightful place of—the more talented, the more qualified and/or the more deserving; moments like MESSENGER hearken back to those heady days of the Age of Exploration, when accomplishment meant more than sound bites and photo-ops.  Missions like MESSENGER remind us all of the big dreams which carried humanity through far darker times.  There are no “K-Feds” in the heavens.  “Jersey Shore” isn’t on; and “The Situation” and the gang couldn’t fix their hair in zero-gee.

Out THERE, Hollywood blowhards can’t lecture us on our lack of compassion while they teeter around on the red carpet dressed in clothing which could feed a family for a year.  Oliver Stone and Sean Penn can’t vomit their venomous vitriol out there—there’s no air.  Al Gore’s junk science sideshow wouldn’t last amidst the real warmth of the solar wind.

And while the effort “to strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield” is enormously expensive, so is the Department of Education; and I don’t remember anyone saying “When I grow up, I want to be a layabout union thug.”  Of course, I don’t remember anyone saying “I want to be a mouth-breathing parasite who’s famous for being famous,” but “Snooki” got a book published, meaning she has admirers.

During his State of the Union speech in January, Obama said “we do big things.”  Actually, Mr. President, we do an astronomical number of small things, and occasional medium-sized things. And we don’t do most of them particularly well. But we can.

I believe we can return the triumph of the human spirit to the American vocabulary. I believe that while exploration can sometimes be irrational, discovery is ALWAYS magical.  At the very least, let’s return to our children the sense of wonder that comes from dreaming big and doing bigger. 

Call it “the audacity of hope.”  Actually, don’t call it that.  That sounds like some hackneyed Democrat campaign slogan. 

At the very least, let’s remind them there are greater aspirations than being a community organizer.

    i think he is leading to another crisis we dont need more problems for hells sake pull them out of there who is running this country un or us?

      Barack Obama doesn’t qualify to be a President of United State of America because he doesn’t have any experience or knowledge in economy and politics. Obama is illegal and an affirmative action president. Obama was elected to universal Hosannas because he is black. It wasn’t a secret.

      We’ve been using affirmative action to hire and promote teachers and cops and to popularize movie stars and media heroes. We’ve had a generation of affirmative action agitprop, 24/7/365.

      Obama will go down as the worst US president in the history. He has no clue how to govern or how to conduct a foreign policy. I’m sorry that our political parties are so corrupt that we don’t have any real candidates to vote for.

      Obama is taking our poor debt ridden leaderless nation to the war against a nation that doesn’t threaten us? Why? Because he looked fooling saying Gadaffi had to go, and Gadaffi didn’t go? How many lives will be lost? How many hundreds of billions will Obama adventure cost? How will we get out? Should Congress have to approve this matter?

        “Barack Obama doesn’t qualify to be a President of United State of America because he doesn’t have any experience or knowledge in economy and politics”.

        The constitution does not require Knowledge of economics to be president. It does, however, require them to be a natual born citizen. That is what disqualivies Obama and that is why he should be removed.

        He is not the first black president. He is the first HALF BLACK president.

        If we can elect Herman Cain in 2012 then we will have the first black president.

        • http://MSN.com Alice

          I disagree about it. Obama is a first black, mulatto president. Many African Americans has some European ancestors in them. It can easy proof by checking their DNA genes. Often they are mix, mulattos and they also look different than Africans.

          • http://Illinois'17th Old Henry

            Black is black. You either are, or you are not. Little Barry is half black at best.

          • JUKEBOX

            Black/Mulatto is a redundant statement. Look up the definition of Mulatto in the dictionary. He is a liar to call himself “BLACK”, and he damn sure doesn’t look like any of his Kenyan relatives or his Caucasian relatives. He reminds me of a “JACKALOPE”

        Really???… Really!!! Well, if the foo-bird wits, share it.
        That’s brilliant!
        Where was he sent him from? Can we return him? Put a big red bow on his head and flaming candles in each hand and take him back to the temp office?? what?

        • JUKEBOX

          Watching a movie on HBO the other night called “McGruber”, there was a scene where this guy runs around naked with a stalk of celery stuck in his butt, I could readily imagine Obama doing something like with his “GOOD BUDDY RAHM”.

          • Carlucci

            I was at a Red Box kiosk the other day and saw that “McGruber” was one of the choices. Sounds kind of funny. I guess I’ll rent it the next time I go.

      • Void1972

        Well, one good thing about Obama being elected is we will never have to worry about having another black,inexperienced,anti-American communist from the most corrupt state in the union elected again!
        If you just look at our world and ask yourself, how many thriving nations on our planet are run by blacks? You find the answer is none.

        We deserve the horror that is comming to America because we the people created it! We have fallen prey to our own greed and stupidity. We watch sick, demented TV shows and worthless, fixed sporting events while America is burning. The time we waste with useless activities is why we are in our current and final demise.
        We the people should have started a revolution after our elected officials, wall street, banks and the fed reserve raped us of our country and our future. We the people should have marched on Washington and demanded justice for the trillions that were robbed from us and our childrens children.
        No, we couldnt miss American idol or the jersey shore.
        Well folks, i hope your prepared for what we are about to reap, because it’s not going to be pretty.
        God Bless and help those who trust in him, and God Bless America and those who fight for her!!!

        • Carlucci

          Yes, and have you ever noticed that all of the warlords are black in the African nations? They steal their fellow citizens blind. And now, their cousin Obama has clearly declared war upon the American people.

          I remember visiting Jamaica back in 1978 and was astounded at how poor the people were. It was a typical third world country. Yet, the tourism was a huge cash cow. Made no sense until I realized who was governing the nation. Went back there in 1999 because my husband had never been there and wanted to go. I thought surely things would have changed for the better, but NO – !! It was worse. Ovomit is trying to do the same thing here. I guess that’s all those people know how to do…

          • Michael J.

            Carlucci,
            You touched on somethinga little off subject, but worth bringing up.

            “Yes, and have you ever noticed that all of the warlords are black in the African nations? They steal their fellow citizens blind”

            Human bondage has been practiced for millenium. But the African slave trade in proportions seen several hundred years ago would have not been possible if it were not for African Warlords willing to sell their own people into slavery in such large numbers.

        • Michael J.

          Void1972,
          You are right about where we are headed and the fact that it is a result of our own greed and wicked lust.
          But you should also realize the end you prophesize did not evolve without the help of anti-capitalist communist who have been slowing nudging us, manipulating us for at least one hundred years. Marx and Engels Communist Manifesto written in 1859 reads more accurately in describing now-day social mindsets and current events than a book of Nostradamus Quatrains. The founders of the Frankfurt School in 1920′s Germany took up the Marxist banner with the creation of “Political Correctness”. Saul Alinsky was spawned by The Frankfurt School shortly after they moved to Columbia University, New York City in the 1930′s. Cloward & Piven came from Columbia University as did Hillary Clinton in an ongoing procession that to this day resembles a Detroit assembly line punching out a seemingly endless line of devout communist.

          So although we have been weak and complacent, we are also the victims of generational communist cohercion that most people have only recently become aware of.

          The initial part of fixing any problem is to first be aware of it. This situation didn’t arise overnight and it won’t be fixed by tomorrow.

          • Void1972

            Michael,
            You are correct! The Communist, or Bund Der Grettchen, was created in the early 1800s by the Rothchilds and other Jewish families that wanted to take control of all people through total world currency control. We are finally at that point and our world will never be the same.
            These so called Jews use the Religion for protection reasons only, and can carry out the most evil crimes in the name of God. They worship a different God then us Gold, Oil, Diamonds, GOD. But their true God is satan.
            Please find the book “To Eliminate The Opiate” by a Rabbi Marvin Antleman. This was written in the early 1970s and the facts, names and dates are astounding.
            Hope you fare well in the comming days and please try to prepare yourself and your family for the comming crisis. Good luck!

          • Michael J.

            Void1972,
            Thanks for the info, I was un-aware of Rabbi Antelman. I was impressed with his depth of knowledge when I listened briefly to a radio interview where talks about secret societies and current events.

            As for preparedness, two years provisions is my goal and includes heirloom seeds, artesian well, defensive implements, alternate energy sources, medical books and other how-to literature. (internet days may be numbered)

            Best of luck to you and yours.

            He, as in Barry Soetoro, is giving them as in the NEW MARXIST Leader of Brazil rights to drill for OIL in the GULF of MEXICO on American turf no less, (mind you we can’t drill) but they can.

            As well we the American TAX payers will be not only be paying for them to drill it, but to pump it, and then we will get the JOY of paying for it too!

            Oh just such a great guy that Barry Soetoro is. I bet he gets lots of Votes come 2012.

    “Barack Obama—who campaigned for the White House on fervent opposition to two wars” Wrong. Obama did not campaign on opposition to the war in Afghanistan. Rather he wanted to emphasize this battle which he has done with a somewhat successful surge while winding down military operations in Iraq. Civil wars are tough to fight. We don’t know the opposition in Libya.

    • Al Sieber

If we are going to get our Republic back, we’ll have to take it back. Our country and our might is being used by elitist to further their plan for world domination through beating up the petty dictators and placing their puppets in place. We have no business in Libya or anyother country but as long as our dumbed down citizens believe that it is a “peace keeping” mission, they are fine with it. who cares if it costs us another trillion dollars and half of our youth.

            Spitfire, We all need to know that there are liberals willing to die for what they believe in as well as conservatives who feel the same and there won’t be any sign on their chest proclaiming their affiliation. There won’t be any uniforms to distinguish who is who and you will be looking at old friends through you sights, maybe even family members. That’s how it was in the first civil war.

            And I agree about the liberals. Most believe that the military will fight for them as long as they have a liberal President. After all, the President is CIC. That means the military must obey his orders to shoot all the civilians, right? I’ve had some of these liberals tell me so.

          • Kate8

            Old Henry – Sadly, some of the younger ones will, as they don’t really know what this country has been about. And there are the foreign nationals in our military who will, too.

            I heard the numbers of military who will defend the citizenry are about 50/50. (BTW, I have some military in my family).

    Some refreshing thoughts Ben.
    As far as Obama’s reasons to get involved in this new war…it’s very plain to me. He thinks it’s an easy win….and that will make him look like a hero. Once again….the cost has not been weighed….it’s the political outcome and image he’s concerned about.
    And as far as the U.N. goes….if they’re so all-fired concerned about the safety of a small group of people fighting against a bigger, stronger, well financed, fanatical government….why aren’t they over in Israel firing rockets back at the Palistinian terrorists.

    • Ellen1

      Where was the intervention in Rwanda and other African nations? Their “humanitarian” motivations ring VERY hollow and reek of self-aggrandisement and lust for power. Absolutely right about Israel.

      • Jay

        This may sound crazy, but I think Rowanda may have been a form of depopulation policy. It seems strangely odd that absolutely no one interfered until it was over. Where was the UN.
        Casualties: 900 thousand. Strictly a theory.

        • Kate8

          Jay – Especially since it was primarily the Christian population that was being targeted.

          I met a young woman who escaped Rowanda during that time. Horrible.

          • Jay

            Kate8, horrible indeed! Film footages of the massacre shook me to the core. Can’t imagine what is was like for the survivors.

      • Vigilant

        Rwanda, like Kosovo, were the shame of Bill Clinton. No national security threat in Rwanda, so Clinton let the killing go on. No national security threat in Kosovo either, but he needed to divert attention from Monica Lewinsky.

        • Kate8

          In Kosovo, he (the leader – can’t spell his name – M) was trying to protect his Christian population from the invading Muslims. Clinton aided the Muslims against him.

          It’s Christianity they are intent on wiping out. We are next.

          • Jay

            Kate8, closer to the truth, its true Christianity they are trying to wipe out. Their plan is to set up their pseudo Christianity with the man of perdition as messiah.

        • Biff

          The UN did intercede in Rwanda with UNAMIR (United Nations Assistance Mission for Rwanda), but the response was half-hearted at best. A Canadian general was in charge of an ill-equipped and under-manned multi-national force of 2000 soldiers. This general made a request for a total force of 5000 well-equipped soldiers to stop the genocide, but the UN refused due in part to a new directive by then President Clinton. Additionally, Belgium, France, Britain, Austria, Holland, Germany and other European countries left Rwanda and the original mission was reduced to a contingent of five countries. What was left of UNAMIR is credited with saving the lives of approximately 30,000 people or about one person for every 30 people who died in the genocide.

          The Rwanda genocide was about ethnicity and it was never about Christianity as both the Hutu and Tutsi populations were predominantly Catholic.

    • JUKEBOX

      It’s because Israel is not corrupt enough to serve on any UN council.

    • 45caliber

      SteveB:

      The cost is not something for any politician to worry about. After all, they aren’t risking their own lives, they can make sure none of their families get into danger, and they aren’t worried about the monitary cost since the taxpayers will have to cover that.

      An economic professor many years ago told my class that war was the best way to stabilize an economy. You produce massive amounts of goods to export (ammunition, bombs, etc.) and they are used immediately so you have to produce more. It is better than common commerce since most goods you make to export take some time to use up.

      • DaveH

        There is only one advantage to war (for the economy) and that is the motivational effect on the citizens. But the disadvantages are wasting resources (oil, steel, explosive chemicals, etc.) and human lives.
        We could find much better ways to motivate people than starting wars. One in particular is simply getting back to the kind of Freedom and respect for property rights that our country had a couple of hundred years ago. People getting to profit and spend the rewards from their own labor and ingenuity is the greatest motivator of all. We’ve lost that with the Government spending 40% of our Gross Domestic Profit.

        • 45caliber

          War doesn’t necessarily motivate citizens (although they usually lose if they aren’t motivated.) But it does get everyone’s attention on the war instead of on something like the economy that the politicians don’t want you to notice. Or on their spending habits.

        Yes that’s true up to a point. You still have to pay the workers and factories that produce the arms. We are broke. For that scenario to work the US would have to either print more money, inflation, or cut expendetures in the Social-Welfare sector.

    Some polls show that 70% of the American People support this war in Libya. Pres.Obama is using this for his own purposes to get re-elected.

    The real problem with exploring space or developing new technology is the government. Consider: if we could move to Mars or another system, we could escape the government’s control here. So there are blocks. Some of the biggest are safety and environment.

    “So you want to produce this method of creating energy. Tell me, what problems have you had in the operation of this power station? What? You mean you haven’t operated one yet? Then we can’t give you permission to build one to test since you don’t have the necessary operating safety information.”

Now justice be done I have to give him credit for only one thing, He did lift the ban on stem cell research enough that the information is coming out of the woodwork on progress made. I like that, I have a desperate need. I read an email from a lady that claimed her son was in an accident- I think she said car accident. I hope she reads this. Or maybe someone else in need might. I read that last week Good shepherd hospital in Atlanta did a stem cell implant on quadra or paraplegics. Now we wait to see. If I were this lady I would get to know Good Shepherd very well.

        During WWII, Germany did a huge research project on cold. They wanted to know how to revive someone who was partially frozen, etc. They also wanted to see if reducing someone’s temperature after a major trauma would give them better ability to save lives.

        Unfortunately they conducted the research with prisoners and killed a lot of them. So after the war, the US was insturmental in getting all the research canned because it wouldn’t be right to use it to save lives since people had died acquiring it.

        Stem cell research is bad from some people’s point of view for the same reasoning.

      I like your anaology of the power station. However, I would caution you about assuming that ther will be a “Star Trek” type mentality of colonizing space (and specifically Mars). To think that people could be sent there to start a colony and forge their own society is a little naive. The government would have reams of protocols and procedures (and you think the healthcare bill was long)that anyone colonizing space would have to adhere to. THe point is that the government would micro-micromanage any type of endeavor into space colonization.

        You are right. In fact, the reason we are using Russia’s international space station instead of building our own (even though most of the ISS construction has been paid for by us) is because of lawyers.

        Some lawyer about forty years ago noted that NASA was forging ahead without any lawyer input. So some firm sued the government. Their argument was that if we put a station into orbit, EVERY country it orbitted has equal rights at no charge to anything found or developed there. If we created a space business, they got their share of the profits for nothing.

        It wasn’t because they were really concerned about the fairness of anything – they simply wanted to insure that NASA had to have a law staff to sign off on everything done in space.

    • Bear

      It will cost us in dollars and in lives. Remember when Lyndon B. Johnson said, “war is good for the economy and it decreases surplus populatiuon?” Yes, he did say that and as unpopular as it was for his image when it got out, it does both of those things. That is reality. Only, it decreases OUR population when we don’t want it to. We need to decrease THEIR population, not ours. This is where unmanned drones come in and the war technology we have been developing. Some politicians want to decrease the defense budget. This is the budget that has created these unmanned weapons that allow us the advantage of taking out the enemy without risk of life to our troops. These weapons mean less of our kids being sent in harms way. Makes me think of President Harry S. Truman and his ultimate decision to drop the big ones on Nagasaki and Hiroshima. It was a decision that not many could make, but in the end……..well, we’ll never know how many more lives were saved on both sides by his decision. God rest his soul and bless him for putting an end to that war.

      • 45caliber

        Bear:

        But it isn’t FAIR if it decreases only their population! One of our Congressmen said so. He stated that it wasn’t fair to Iraq that we had only a few thousand casualties (I hate that word since it hides the real meaning) and they had over a hundred thousand casualties. He wanted us to fight all future wars with no better equipment than our enemies and with the same number of casualties to make it fair.

        The real cost of the present wars is not the war – it is the rebuilding afterwards – something that I feel we should never do.

        And it does help our economy. After all, it is an export so it puts a lot of otherwise unneeded people to work and all goods (ammo, bombs, etc) are used up immediately requiring more of them.

      • DaveH

        You know, Bear, if they were used only against people that are actually attacking our country, I would agree. But the reality is that we are over in somebody else’s country cherry-picking sides with no trials, no chance for the victims to clear themselves, and shooting them from thousands of feet away. This flies in the face of our supposed “innocent until proven guilty” philosophy.
        I know. Somebody will say “but this is war”. Really? Has Congress approved? War is just a word used by leaders who want to justify their random killing of other human beings.

        • 45caliber

          DaveH! I thought better of you than that. What makes you think that we MUST have trials to go to war? We shouldn’t even have them after we go to war! Take WWII for instance. We captured a LOT of Germans and they captured a lot of us. Our boys were almost starved. We fed our prisoners. But did we try any of them?

          Only a few were tried for crimes related to the concentration camps. It wasn’t a crime to go to war and isn’t today. Prisoners of war means simply that we captured some enemy soldiers that were shooting at us. We keep them until either the war is over or we trade them to the enemy for some of our own. No trials. No laws were broken.

          Now anyone who is NOT in uniform is not covered by these rules. Not even in the Geneva Convention. They are considered murderers, terrorists, saboutors, assassins, etc. and may be dealt with by law. Or they may simply be shot.

          Does this make sense?

          • 45caliber

            I do agree that we are there illegaly since Congress has not voted for the war. But again, shooting them from a distance is only good sense.

          • DaveH

            The only justifiable reason for taking the life of another is in self-defense. We can’t claim self-defense because we are over in somebody else’s country who hasn’t attacked us.
            I don’t care how big your gang is, murder is murder.

    Mr. Crystal,

    Good article. It brought back memories of the “Space Age” in which I grew up in the 50s and 60s. We did, indded, have a can do spirit.

    I think that spirit is still present in the majority of Americasn, but it seems to be in a hibernation mode. If we as a nation ever get some true leadership with a vision of what our great nation is, and can be, it will spring to life with a vengance.

    I was curious about the reason for the mission to Mercury. What do they hope to accomplish?

    • 45caliber

      The real problem with a “can-do” spirit today is government regulations. For instance, supposed you invent the better mousetrap. You want to build and sell them. First you have to hire a safety expert to make sure that everything you do is per government requirements. Then you have to hire an enviornmental expert to make sure that your mousetrap and the factory doesn’t harm anything. Then you have to hire a RCRA expert – and the things go on. Just to start building the mousetraps, even if you plan to do it in a garage, will cost you thousands of dollars.

      I once heard that MSHA inspectors in Arizona inspected a small hard rock mine that a single prospector was working. The mine started in the side of a mountain and went straight in following a gold vein. The miner would go down to the rock face, hand drill some blasting holes, insert the dynamite, run a wire back to the outside of the mine, and blast. Then he’d wait a day for the dust to settle and go back in to remove the broken rock. He would then grind it in a small ball mill and recover the gold. He made perhaps $1000 a week.

      MSHA insisted that he had to hire a full time employee to remain outside the mine in continual radio contact with the miner. Further, he had to wear a hard hat (in case some rock might fall from the ceiling – remember, I said this was a hard rock mine), had to have radios, had to have sniffers, had to have some method to prevent anyone else from detonating the dynamite before he was ready (hire someone to watch the first someone to make sure he didn’t try to set it off), etc.

      By the time they finished, the miner would have to pay out about $75,000 a year in wages and make one time perchases of up to $200,000 – for a gold vein that provided him with about $50,000 a year.

      So he went out of business. That’s what happened to his “Can-do” spirit.

And if they have the right to do that, they also have to right to proctect you from yourself by telling you where to work, where to live, and whom to marry.

          • DaveH

            Hell yes, 45. I complained about the seat belt laws. A lot. Remember, I am Libertarian. Government has no right in protecting us from ourselves. And once we let them get their foot in that door (as with seat belts, vice crime, drugs, etc.) there is no end to their meddling.

            I’ll tell you a story. My teenaged daughter (16) was living with me and my girlfriend. I had told my daughter that I couldn’t really be a father as I was working far away from home (my girlfriend didn’t want the responsibility), and I could only get home on the weekends. I told my daughter that I considered her to be an adult and the only rules were that she had to pay for her own mistakes. She got into plenty of trouble, but unlike other teens she had no parent to rebel against so she learned quickly from her mistakes.
            One time she got arrested for marijuana so I had to attend an all-day learning session with her on the weekend. The psychologist in charge was going around the room asking the various law-breakers about their situations. When it came my turn, the psychologist asked me what I thought about her actions. I said “I was mad”. She asked “About your daughter’s behavior?”. I said “No, I was mad because the cops came into my home without a warrant, and arrested my daughter without informing her of her rights”. I asked “How can you expect the citizens to want to obey the rules when Government officials don’t obey the rules?”. My daughter was horrified, lol, and the room became pretty quiet. As you might imagine, I’m pretty outspoken.
            My daughter, by the way, has become so domesticated that I worry about her putting too much pressure on herself to be a perfect mom.
            Freedom works.

            I complained about the seat belt laws because they always wrinkled my clothing (back then I wore a lot of silk, 100% cotton, and linen clothing to work). I got in the car looking as fresh as a daisy, and emerged looking totally rumpled.

        The MSHA is a branch of OSHA and OSHA does not have authority over businesses with 10 or less employees. So, I am not sure about the story you realted as I do not think that the MSHA would have the authority to regulate a one man operation.

        • 45caliber

          MSHA is Mining. They have authority over ANY mine, regardless of the number of workers. Further, they have ability to arrest that OSHA does not. I worked at an alumina plant for 12 years. Since we were dealing with ore (bauxite) we fell under MSHA instead of OSHA. The rules are tighter too.

      Though I do not know the particular objectives of this space craft, it is always useful to explore the unknown. For example, Mercury has surface temperatures that can only be simulated on earth. How does this impact rock formations? Chemical composition? How does the spacecraft itself perform being in close orbit to the sun? Has the shielding design been effective? The questions and answers go on and on. Extrpolate technology and you can appreciate the need to know answers about the unknown. This is the point of Ben’s article.

        Ikar,the validity of space exploration is tedious at best.We are speaking of an evironment so hostile to human beings,that one tiny mistake costs a life.The actual exploration and colonization of space,is necessarily a world wide endeavor.Without everyone pitching in their trillions,it just will not be feasible.Small incursions to near earth space do not an exploration make.Considering the price tag of these incursions,how are we to move out into space a planet away?The environmental difficulties alone make it next to impossible to colonize anywhere that is not very near earth.The logistical measures alone would make it very unlikely that it will happen anytime soon.It is said that in space…no one can hear you scream.No one can easily and quickly come to your aid if there are mechanical difficulties either.In space no tow trucks are on call.

Listing to Onumnutts reading the telepromptor and with all the UMs, UHs and DUHs, makes George Bush sound like aeducated person. Onumnutts sounds like a frshman high school kid giving a speech on something he knows nothing about. Onumnutts relatives can be found clicking their tongues to communicate and going native and skinning lizards. Technology is doing double flips while swinging on vines.

    Ben Crystal,
    While I agree that space is fascinating, if we want to win the public over to our side of less Government (much less), then we need to be more consistent. I see nowhere in the Constitution where Government has the power to spend the citizens money on Space Exploration. Those who want to explore space should donate their own money to the effort. Private companies would spend that money more efficiently, and their customers would be voluntary participants.

      I’d rather spend it on space research than anything else they can come up with. Space exploration is the ONLY thing the government has spent money on that has paid its way. Where do you think EKG’s and so on came from? Even if we never got another ship off the ground, the research is very useful. There are literally hundreds of things that were born here that we accept today, such as home computers. Let’s not cut it off just yet, huh?

      • DaveH

        I’m not disputing the benefits of space exploration, 45. I’m disputing the Government’s right to take the money from the many to support the desires of the few.

    People continue to prove just how stupid you all are. Obama is only following the laws and treaties that has been set by the US and the UN. You must know that the US played a big and vital role in creating the UN. It is too bad that no one can forsee the future. The US helped created the monster (UN) now the monster is calling the shots. So stupid is as stupid does. The UN don’t trust American to head the UN. Now meditate on that.

    • DaveH

      I don’t know why you are calling us names, Misguided (you are), when probably most of us don’t want to be in the UN. Myself for sure, at least.

      misguided, the UN no longer functions according to the purpose it was established for, and because of that, we wish to no longer be a member. Nothing stupid about that! What is stupid, is not distancing ourself from the UN because it no longer functions according to its original purpose. What was the original purpose for establishing the United Nations?

      The purpose of the United Nations was to bring all nations of the world together to work for peace and development, based on the principles of justice, human dignity and the well-being of all people. It affords the opportunity for countries to balance global interdependence and national interests when addressing international problems.

      misguided, do you think this still applies?

    Lets go back into space ( not the one between the ears ) and find the missing link.

    The current Government has sent about 25 messages out and they contradict each other. So far as I see, they have a current over-run of $1.6 Trillion Dollars that is due to be paid before April 2, 2011. And of course the National Debt of $14.22 Trillion Dollars which has an Interest cost of about $225 Million Dollars each year.

    The Government can’t pay all this and it’s options are very limited. So look for a serious problem soon.

    • Raggs

      Yeah that will be the next “crisis” obama creates in order to gain even further power over his sheeple…. Don’t step in the poop!

    Where the hell are the Arab nations? Wasn’t it the Arab League that wanted a no-fly zone in the first place? Why don’t the Arab/Muslim nations take care of this? There are Arab countries with jet fighters why don’t they step up? They can take over in Iraq and Afghanistan too.

    The people who run the Nobel Peace Prize, left of center that they
    are thought by giving Obama the honor and the million dollars,
    that this would be a great investment on their part. They thought
    they could rape the good old USA of every thing that we stood for.
    The Nobel use to mean something,however, over the years it has
    cheapened itself to the point, it is nothing but a tool for
    the far left. They can keep the prize, because it means nothing.
    Give it to their other Socialists buddies, we got our own award for Obama,>>>>>>> NO THANKS >>>>>>>>>

  • AustinAndy

    A couple of thoughts on the space program and President Obama. His administration had decided that we should not go to the moon or to Mars; instead, we should land a manned rocket on an asteroid because its cool. Get back to me when you see measurable progress on that. And NASA’s mission has changed from exploration of space into a Muslim outreach program. Didn’t see that one coming, did you?

    Like everything else constructive that he “touches”, our President manages to find a way to destroy it. What a guy!

    NOT!!!!

    I WISH the previous message was an April Fool’s joke, but unfortunately it is not.
