    This board is for debate which, without partisans, would have little content.

    How about this , Hack?Barack Obama: Nasa must try to make Muslims 'feel good' - Telegraph

    or this? White House, NASA, Defend Comments About NASA Outreach to Muslim World Criticized by Conservatives - ABC News

    Please learn to read properly, investigate, and then comment. Perhaps you might also consider where NASA has gone under Obama. Now its just another government bureaucracy.
    I never said right wing CON hacks couldn't or shouldn't post.... just callin' it as I see it!

    CONs have to short term memory loss to complain about such silly crap. Our nation was once famous for outreach, now partisan CONs decry it.

    For the record the outreach isn't giving anything away, since we have many economic ties with the Muslim world, why not invite a few very select scentists come and partner with NASA? Problem with CONs seems to be they paint everyone with a broad brush- well everyone but themselves, there they can find more layers to CONdom than an onion...

    But leaving the CON nonsense behind the best and brightest minds the USofA could produce and import failed numerous times trying to produce a rocket that could clear the launch pad. Poor policies, designs and testing killed 3 astronauts in Apollo 1 and damn near did in Apollo 13.

    Yet CONs are right in there declaring just how great that program was (especialy when using it to decry the current state of affairs in NASA- though they also decry NASA as too 'governminty' and bringing the private sector into space exploration)

    Fact is it is waaaaay too early to declare the ACA a failure- well unless you are trying to run a CON game....

    Hey, 6 is a lucky number. At least in China. Not as lucky as 8, but close enough. An auspicious beginning.

    Now, if the damn site would actually work, who knows what could happen. Imagine that 666 people would enroll on the first day. A small but real possibility, with most ominous and macabre repercussions.

    Hats off to Field-Marshal of Healthy Human Servants (or whatever she is supposed to be) Kathleen Sebelius for sacrificing her reputation to avert such catastrophe.
    Cmon now.....she said she was sorry. That's suppose to make everything all Right. She is human and makes mistakes. So just take the apology and forgetboutit. As she refuses to take the gag order off the techies and refuses to put herself off into the exchange.

    For the younger folks a viewing of the movie "The Right Stuff" would be far more informative than partisan pronouncements. I read the book but the movie quicker. To use NP's yardstick of first day achievements we should have never put a man in space as many of the first attempts to build a rocket capable of true space exploration were dismal failures. many rockets couldn't even clear the launch tower. The policies for the Apollo program killed three astronauts as the pure oxygen capsule with poor escape procedures, and flaws in the early capsule design doomed the crew of Apollo 1.

    To be of the Wrong Stuff and quickly drop a program because it wasn't a huge success is what wimps and frenchies do.

    CONs are a queer sort of folk. So rigid to see some things through to the bitter end but so quick to abandon others before the new has been knocked off of it.

    Good thing this current batch of CONs were not incharge of NASA as we strove to find the Right Stuff.....
    The Right Stuff was an excellent movie and showed an America that no longer exists, sadly. One where we tried to achieve greatness, not false equality in outcomes. Where hard work and tenacity lead to an achievement that has helped make our world what it is today.

    But here's the thing, Obamacare is the destruction of Liberty, the enslavement of people to the demands of an overbaring Government. NASA in the 60's was about achievement. You're attempt to draw parallels fails miserably.

    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Conservatives are for voluntary outreach, not enforced wealth distribution. Conservatives are for personal responsibility not nanny-state dictates.

    So I can't log on, and my insurance dropped me, and when I finally can log on, I can't use my doctor, and what do you know, my hospital opted out of the program, too.

    Can't wait to go the free clinic!

    You forgot that once you DO sign up, you get higher deductibles, coverages you don't want or need, higher out of pocket costs, but hey, you can get a free mammogram! Just make your appointment 9 months in advance and don't miss it!

    Many Trump supporters have lots of problems, and those deplorables are bringing those problems to us. They’re racists. They’re misogynists. They’re islamophobic. They're xenophobes and homophobes. And some, I assume, are good people.
