Much ado about nothing really. There were no real announcements as it happened later in the day, so there was no real contribution to the press briefing. So they met, which I guess could be considered a good thing, but I want to touch on what Pelosi said.
Nancy Pelosi is an idiot. Oh, I'm sorry, was that not politically correct? Too bad. Stupid is as stupid does, or as stupid says. As the above article quotes her, “I have not been a big fan of manned expeditions to outer space, in terms of safety and cost.” This woman has absolutely NO fraggin' clue what space means to the advancement to humanity. She only cares about the advancement of herself.
She's happy to spend billions on a socialized medical system, which throughout history has been shown to be a huge mistake for the future condition of the people it's supposed to help, which in and of itself incurs major cost and safety risk, but she's willing to cast aside human space exploration using the excuse of cost and safety. What a hypocrite.
Without human exploration of space, we would not have achieved MANY of the major technological advancements that help people every day. Many medical advancements are a direct result of human space exploration, including medical systems, technologies and even biological analysis. The lessons learned from putting people in space directly affects how we diagnose and treat people here on Earth, and this moron Senator doesn't have the foggiest clue, nor do I think she cares about that fact.
It's FACT! Not trumped up B.S. It's FACT! For the life of me, I cannot fathom why the people of California constantly elect such a myopic dolt, unless many of them truly share the same perspective. If that's the case, I do hope California falls into the ocean. It's obvious she doesn't have any significant care for the future of this country, unless that future means more power for her, her party and government in general.
Nancy Pelosi, you're a bonehead. You don't have a clue, you never have and I venture to say that you never will. Fortunately you have not managed to take away free speech (yet), so I proudly sit here and say this, and I'd gladly say it right to your face. Human space exploration is not only beneficial, but necessary for the survival of the human race.
Space can solve many of the key issues we're facing today, such as the economy, employment, education, environment, energy, international relations and more!
It's about time "We the People" start to put people in Washington D.C. who understand this fact and look to make America a space faring nation.
It's about time "We the People" push and demand that our growth is not based on banking, investments and "invisible money" bubbles that can/will pop, but that it's based on solid production, true advancement and sustainable growth.
It's about time that "We the People" strike now, strike often, and strike true with our message, our votes and our demands.
It's about time that "We the People" start acting like "We the People" and do what is right for the future our our children and generations to come.
Let's get it done!
