As philosopher and astrophysicist Yogi Berra once said, "The future ain't what it used to be."
NASA, which used to do interesting things like, oh, building rockets and putting men on the freaking moon has seen a significant change in its goals and activities under Barack Hussein Obama.
Back in 2010, it was revealed that the president told the new head of NASA that their "foremost mission" was outreach to Muslims "to help them feel good about their historic contribution to science and math and engineering." Not to mention their tremendous advances in kinetic building demolition.
But now, the government has bizarrely asked NASA to determine what could possibly cause the complete and utter distruction of our civilization, wink-wink nudge-nudge, and after spending a vast amount of terrestrial taxpayer dollars, the alleged space agency has come up with an answer: not an asteroid strike, not a massive solar flare, not even an invasion of googly-eyed aliens (from space, that is, as opposed to the googly-eyed aliens who already mow our lawns).
Nope, the big intergalactic menace turns out to be income inequality and inefficient use of our natural resources!
Frankly, Hope n' Change is more than a little confused about what any of this has to do with NASA. The president could be ordering them to invent a satellite capable of finding missing jets, or tracking incoming Russian missiles. But nooOOoooo.
NASA is now only in the business of advancing Barack Obama's political pronouncements and goals. Next, they'll probably claim that they've found evidence that the universe was formed when God said "Yes We Can."
NASA is now utterly incapable of putting a man on the moon, but our government shows no limitation in its ability (and willingness) to moon the rest of us.
