With the launch of the last Space Shuttle mission this morning the United States has given up the future. Thanks to the Luddite Republican idiots combined with those who should have been “shot in the face” rather than “ran for office” (William Proxmire D, Wisconsin) we have sacrificed the future to make sure we have cash for welfare and faith-based charities.
If you vote a party line, you are also one of those who killed my country, and I wish you only the worst.
To the inheritors of space and the future, the citizens of China and India, I hope you are smarter about not giving up the future for the present. Based on your self-serving leadership and lack of humanity/archaic caste based systems I suspect you will do far worse. I do have hope though!
