Obama's Plans For NASA

Soon our only access to space will be by hitching rides in archaic Soyuz spacecraft like the one above, which careened to earth 400 miles off target.

I've ranted about it before, but it bears repeating - Obama will effectively destroy the manned space program. This artcle from American Thinker describes how.
As the legend goes, when the Spanish conquistador Hernando Cortez landed in what is now Mexico in 1519, he ordered the boats that brought him and his men there to be burned. Obama seems to have something similar planned for NASA.
Obama's plans are essentially to gut NASA to help fund his plan to federalize pre-school. Obama sees the federal government as the solution to all problems, so it's important that children are indoctrinated to this view as early as possible. We wouldn't want any kids to grow up believing in self-reliance and personal responsibility now, would we?

I think that spirit of self reliance is dying with each generation. It's being destroyed by the socialists and commies running our academic institutions and media. "Problem X is getting worse, the government needs to do something." Yes, let's pour more money into something that has already proven to be a complete and utter failure. The Dept. of Education is a shining example of waste and futility.
