One Giant Leap for Mohammed

NASA Administrator Charles Bolden has revealed that the "foremost" mission Barack Hussein Obama wants him to accomplish is to improve relations with the Muslim world.

Speaking to Al Jazeera on the one year anniversary of the president's trip to Cairo to praise Islam, Bolden said that the president charged him with several tasks...the
foremost of which was "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."

The president seems to be forgetting that the culture's
last historic contribution to aviation science was the discovery of how to fly to New York using only boxcutters.

But aside from that,
what kind of madness is going on in the Whitehouse? Why would the president even mention esteem-building for Muslims to NASA's Administrator...let alone make it his top priority?!

This strikes us as being "one small step" too far.
Much too far.

It's okay. They're using Moon Rocks.

I am trying to make the connection between NASA and reaching out to the Muslim world. I guess I am wrong here I though NASA is a space program, not an outreach program. Oh! Wait a minute, NASA can make a Science Fiction movie about peaceful Muslims from space. That has to be it.

This is just too much.

As conspiracy theorist after conspiracy theorist has asserted: Obama is a plant by "someone other", the election was bought and paid for (by Soros), and he's engaged only in puppeting for this powerful, Islamic/socialist/communist group.

Now, I generally do not tend to conspiracy theory, but mon Dieu! he sure plays that particular part well. Obama is clearly someone's ventriloquist dummy. Granted, no-one has a hand up his ass (that we can see, anyway), but, in a similar fashion, he is controlled by the omnipresent teleprompters.

The USA, regardless of what any idiot says to the contrary, was built upon Christian ideals. Read the constitutions of ANY of the fifty states, let alone the country, and you can see evidence of that. Yet CMOTUS (Charlie McCarthy Of The United States) goes on about not being so, and goes on about the "peaceful muslims" (Yeah, I'm sure there are some, but it's awfully damned hard to tell since they are to taught to smile in the face of their enemies). He and Thuh Missus have each slipped regarding his "muslim faith".

"America is the greatest country in the world... I hope you'll join with me as we try to change it."

Obama's policies are deepening a depression, and has the entire financial system teetering on the precipice of total collapse through artificial props rather than allowing the market to self-correct. Good, formerly sound companies are collapsing while companies that should long ago have been shuttered or restructured live on.

"America is the greatest country in the world... I hope you'll join with me as we try to change it."

Obama promised to "spread the wealth around a little" to those idiotic enough to think that such a Utopian concept could ever come to pass. His actions to date have not spread any wealth, but have DESTROYED wealth. Small business is cutting jobs to avoid the burdens of Obama's new policies. Others have closed their doors. Doctors are bailing out of the industry, eliminating jobs for receptionists, office nurses, and other allied fields. Wealth isn't being "spread around a little". It is being destroyed wholesale.

"America is the greatest country in the world... I hope you'll join with me as we try to change it."

And, speaking of healthcare, let's whack it for everyone - "level the playing field", as he so oft parrots from the varied podiums he squawks from. So, by his policies, EVERYONE will get shitty healthcare because, aside from the Gummint not being able to AFFORD it, no-one in their right mind would enter the industry! Work those hours for paltry pay? Shoot, no! Become a lawyer instead - get rich off of SUING the healthcare industry! Duh!

"America is the greatest country in the world... I hope you'll join with me as we try to change it."

An oil rig blows up (the conspiracy theorists say it was rigged to do so), and CMOTUS drags his feet hoping to "let no crisis go to waste" in order to ram another economically devastating tax onto the American people - even though oil washing up on beaches has no bearing whatsoever on the atmospheric CO2 Cap-n-Tax is supposed to save all us CO2-exhaling organisms from.

"America is the greatest country in the world... I hope you'll join with me as we try to change it."

I, for one, have had enough. If these people are still in office after November, I don't know what I will do with myself...

Sorry. Frustration level has simply peaked off of this one.

IIRC (and I may not) 'arabic numerals' predate Islam.
Frequently, "Muslim Scholars" are credited with the discovery of "0" as a place holder / inflection point (b/n positive and negative numbers). But a quick google gets us "The oldest known text to use a decimal place-value system, including a zero, is the Jain text from India entitled the Lokavibhâga, dated 458 AD." (Wiki) "Arab merchants brought the zero they found in India to the West." (Scientific American)
So, Hey, all you "Muslim Scholars" - thanks for NOTHING...

This news item should win some kind of prize for most "ridiculous". Obama's approval rating should be hovering right about "ZERO" right now.

The second runner up is the news headline that Mexico gets to help be involved in the government lawsuit against Arizona....Actually sounds like NASA just might get involved too, seeing as how Muslims have been accused of sneaking over the Mexican border....

Emmentaler- Outstanding post, and we understand your frustration level moving into the red zone. That's why we went with the "exploding head" theme in today's cartoon; at a certain point it seems the only reasonable option.

Pete- the use of a zero as a placeholder strikes us as an apt metaphor for Obama's presidency. It even works mathematically, because anything you multiply times this particular zero turns into zero itself - like healthcare, jobs, and the economy.

Suzy- You're probably right; NASA will soon be repurposing the Space Shuttles to smuggle illegals over the Mexican border. We'll know for sure when Obama assigns NASA a new "Coyote Czar."

You'll pardon me if I share one of my photoshops on the issue, I firmly believe watching this administration choke on their picnic hot dogs could be a Pay-Per-View event.


Stilton Jarlsberg said...

Buzz- great picture! Readers, follow the link to Friendly Tavern to get a look at NASA's new spacesuits.

Only wish that the photo used was not the STS-51L crew that died in the Challenger disaster.....

Anonymous said...

Imagine what would happen if the 9/11 terrorists had space shuttles instead of airplanes...

Just "reachin' out to the Muslim world." By the way, why is it always referred to as the Muslim _world_? That's a bit presumptuous.

Stilton Jarlsberg said...

Anonymous (two above)- Ouch, we hadn't caught that the picture was the Challenger crew, and are sure it was unintentional.

pryorguy said...

America IS still the greatest country in the world...I wish he would get out the way as we try to change it BACK ! Maybe just stay out on the golf course huh.

At what point are people going to wake up to what this treasonous ba$tard is doing to our country?
