Save the rovers

It is such a shame having to leave behind the two true American heroes of the ’00s because of budget cuts: Spirit and Opportunity. These rovers survived the front battle for years now, while the Generals didn’t expect them to live more than 3 months. They sent back useful reckon information to the architects of the war. And yet, they will be left behind, casualties of another war back at home, instead of their own war, a war that they were winning.

On other news, the war in Iraq costs the public $5000 per second.

Update: NASA now plays the PR game: he said, she said…

When Muslim extremists occupy Mars, I’ll consider your plea as somehow reasonable. To kill bad guys, I’ll gladly pay my part of that $5000 each second. I spend more on iTunes…


This is the admin speaking...

Spoken like a true redneck conservative (very evident from your blog). After reading around your blog, you are exactly the type of person and ideas that I dislike. So let’s stay away from each other.

Eugenia, if you hadn’t posted a reply i would have assumed that kf was joking! I guess I just don’t realise people have such stupid ideas.

I love the term ‘Muslim extremists’ – like Roman Catholics aren’t extreme… If you aren’t religious (which im not) most religions are extreme.

“To kill bad guys” – yeh they are bad and we are good! Its that simple 🙂
