NASA's Mission: Improve Ties With Muslims

OK, this takes the cake for the most maddening story of the day. NASA's new administrator, appointed by Soetoro, has told Al-Jazeera that their new mission is to improve ties to the Muslim world. Not to develop a replacement for the Space Shuttle, not to return to the moon or to send men to Mars, nor to search for life in our solar system or outside of it.

"When I became the NASA administrator -- or before I became the NASA administrator -- he charged me with three things. One was he wanted me to help re-inspire children to want to get into science and math, he wanted me to expand our international relationships, and third, and perhaps foremost, he wanted me to find a way to reach out to the Muslim world and engage much more with dominantly Muslim nations to help them feel good about their historic contribution to science ... and math and engineering," Bolden said in the interview.

I have a message for the "Muslim world:" F' you! As soon as the "Muslim world" decides to let their women out of their slave garb, promote free speech and freedom of religion, and stop blowing themselves up with car bombs, may I'll be more receptive. Until them, I don't want any "contributions" from the wonderful people of the Middle East, and I certainly don't want any more Muslims of the radical, throwback type to be allowed in this country. Here's an idea for stimulus, Mr. Soetoro -- educate and employ Americans to be the next generation of scientists and engineers we need for NASA. There is no reason to look to the Middle East for imports, unless of course you want to save on NASA's expenditure for toilet paper.
