America’s Space Program: The Downfall of NASA

“You cannot soar like an eagle, if you are on the ground pecking with the chickens.”
Joel Osteen
The day after the Fourth of July, a bombshell was dropped on America. THIS BOMBSHELL IS CONCERNED WITH AMERICA’S VERY FUTURE. This threat is not the economy, or the massive debt Obama has built, scary as that is. It is not about the dismal outlook for jobs, the ongoing mortgage problems, and unregulated big business. It is not the Obama Health Care foisted on America in spite of its unpopularity. It is not the oil spill in the gulf, although this spill affects all of America. It is not even the massive, world-wide threat of Jihadist Terrorists.

So what is America’s #1 threat? It is the President himself, Barrack Hussein Obama. With every move he makes, with every speech he gives, with every law he wants or gets passed, with his ongoing diplomatic Anti-American policies, with every new ultra-liberal appointee he makes for judges, czars, and his cabinet, he weakens America.

The news this morning, July 6, 2010, hit me right in the solar plexus. The press announced that the President has given the NASA Chief, Charles Bolden, his three most important directives. They are all earthbound goals; no more soaring for NASA:
•Inspire America’s youth to be interested in math and science again.
•Reach out internationally and get other countries cooperating with America’s
NASA Program.
•The Prime Directive: Involve the Muslim World in our space program to make
them feel better about their long history in the fields of math, science, and
even in influencing America’s space program.

Obama had already shut down any NASA objectives to leave the earth’s atmosphere. He has gutted our glorious space program, and added to America’s unemployment rate with lost jobs, not only at NASA, but also at thousands of related support businesses that have helped NASA with its missions. This pulling of NASA’s long-range plans to get a man to Mars is unbelievable and heart-wrenching. With this gutting, Obama already has caused a major brain-drain at NASA and started looming lay-offs. NASA, already discouraged and dejected, has been further demoralized by these three directives. America’s once proud space program that soared higher than the eagles has been grounded and its future is to be on the ground pecking around with the chickens.

These three directives will further weaken America, will help turn America into a third rate country. And, I believe, this is exactly what Obama desires. He wants America to become weaker and weaker. It is seen in nearly everything he does and with almost every utterance out of his mouth.

This emasculation of NASA is just another example of Obama’s zeal to pull America down. He has embarked on an obvious pattern right from the start of his presidency of destroying America’s greatness. He is doing this deliberately (or possibly subconsciously) because he obviously does not believe there is anything special about America, nor does he think America is a good country.

According to Gene Cernan, former astronaut who walked on the moon, Obama has blown away America’s future in space. Cernan says our space program is in serious, serious trouble. Going back fifty years to JFK’s era, he and every president since has wanted to win the battle between tyranny and freedom. This is why America’s space program was started, why it was supported, why Americans wanted desperately for us to win for freedom, why our country actually became #1 in the space program, and why America got to the moon first. These statements have been true until now.

Enter Obama! The NASA of today, groveling down with the chickens pecking in the dirt, has had their wings so clipped by Obama that NASA may never SOAR again. NASA has been demoted to a mere public relations organization, a dangerous one at that, reaching out to our enemies so that — why? — to make Muslims proud of their background. I ask, what is wrong about reaching out to America’s youth and making them proud of America again? Does anyone honestly believe that any young person worth his or her salt is going to look at today’s NASA and find inspiration to study math and science? There is nothing left to admire. There is no greatness, no challenges, no bravery, no feats of daring left for our youth to be inspired by.

Unless the American people wake up and smell the coffee and put a stop to Obama’s obvious agenda to weaken America and make the USA a third-rate country, Obama will succeed. This is why, in my opinion, Obama is America’s Public Enemy #1. This why I say Obama is the biggest threat to America’s future.

FOR FIFTY YEARS, OUR SPACE PROGRAM HAS INSPIRED AMERICA’S YOUNG PEOPLE TO WANT TO BE BETTER, TO GET EDUCATIONS, TO LEARN MORE ABOUT MATH AND SCIENCE, TO WANT TO SOAR WITH THE EAGLES. NASA has stood for the best America has. IT IS AMERICA’S CROWNING ACCOMPLISHMENT, SHOWCASING AMERICA’S GREATNESS TO US AND TO THE WORLD.

If this change in NASA’s direction from flying to the outer reaches of mankind’s imagination to the puny earthbound NASA doing PR stunts for Obama alarms you as much as it does me, get involved. Contact your elected officials, write letters, protest, join tea party groups, let your voices be heard. It is imperative for us to learn about our political candidates and their stands on this issue. We need to turn out in mass to vote in November. OTHERWISE, IN MY OPINION, AMERICA IS DOOMED TO MEDIOCRITY OR WORSE, FAILURE TO KEEP OUR FREEDOMS. IT IS UP TO YOU AND ME — THE FOLKS WHO CARE — TO SAVE AMERICA!
