listen buddy what part of space unicorn dont u understand
Obama’s dream of space travel is unbelievably kickass. A good cartoon.
I’m sorry but WHAT THE FUCK ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT?
The white house has cut NASA funding so many times, I’m surprised this country has any rocket scientists left. He scrapped a manned mission to the moon, and has cancelled the Constellation program, the Ares 1 and Ares V rockets, and the Orion spacecraft, wasting the nearly $10 billion that were put into those programs.
He keeps saying that he wants to increase NASA’s budget, but he gives minuscule gains at terrible prices. He says we’ll have a manned mission to an asteroid by the 2030’s; the president of the Mars Society says that if he hadn’t scrapped the Ares program, we’d have one by 2016.
He has been criticized for destroying space exploration by Neil Armstrong, Jim Lovell, and Eugene Cernan, and I think they know a thing or two about space and why we need to explore it (hint: they commanded Apollo missions).
Even Bill Nye has lambasted the president for his policies. Remember this video? I sure do. I think it’s one of the greatest things Bill Nye has ever done, and I’ve idolized him as a scientist for nearly 20 years.
The point is: the president has some how found a way to technically increase the budget for NASA, and manage to get nothing done. I don’t even know what NASA is working on these days because basically all of their amazing the world-changing programs are gone. And so I have no idea what this comic is trying to say.
*edit* I realize now that it’s from 2010, but I still think this is a good post to make because a lot of people don’t know the current status of our space program.
never not put home again garden grove on repeat for 20 minutes whenever it comes up in the playlist
Last Wednesday, I sat in a House hearing and listened to Republicans describe Obama exercising “unparalleled use of executive power” and operating an “uber-presidency.” They accused him of acting like a “king” and a “monarch,” of making the United States like a “dictatorship” or a “totalitarian government” by exercising “imperial” and “magisterial power.”
But after events in Ukraine, this very tyrant was said to be so weak that it’s “shocking…”
In theory, it is possible for Obama to rule domestic politics with an iron fist and yet play the 98-pound weakling in foreign affairs. But it doesn’t make a lot of sense that one person would vacillate between those two extremes. A better explanation is Obama’s critics are so convinced that he is wrong about everything that they haven’t paused to consider the consistency of their accusations.
Do I agree with everything Obama does? No - but here’s the thing. The right’s trumped up smears and ridiculous hyperbole always seem to fall into the realm of overblown name calling and conspiracy theories that have no basis in reality.
With every passing day I find it more and more difficult to take the GOP seriously, it’s like they have so much spite they will latch on to anything they can that will paint the president in a bad light, true or not and outright oppose anything he says or does - it’s gotten outright cringe-worthy.
