For a short time, when I was a young child, I wanted to be an astronaut. I was inspired by men like John Glenn, Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin and others. There was something awe inspiring about the National Aeronautics and Space Administration.
When I was a child, NASA was responsible for the nation’s civilian space program and aeronautics and aerospace research. Times sure have changed…
When I became the NASA administrator, [Obama] charged me with three things,” NASA head Charles Bolden said in a recent interview with the Middle Eastern news network al-Jazeera. “One, he wanted me to help re-inspire children to want to get into science and math; he wanted me to expand our international relationships; and third, and perhaps foremost, 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, math, and engineering.”
When I first read this, I thought maybe it was an article from The Onion, but seeing Byron York’s name on the byline convinced me otherwise.
Do you remember 2008? Do you remember when people made the assertion that Barack Obama was not a Christian, and was indeed Muslim?
Isn’t it a little bit more than coincidental that President Barack Obama, who was born to a Muslim man, who attended a Muslim school for a short time in Indonesia, and whose own middle name is Hussein would insist on reaching “out to the Muslim world and engage much more with dominantly Muslim nations to help them feel good about their historic contribution to science, math, and engineering”?
NASA’s original purpose was to get us into space, and to keep us there. Under the direction of non awe inspiring space cadet President Obama, it’s evident he is changing NASA’s mission which is apparently the New Arabic Sensitivity Administration.
There are a couple of famous sayings. “Actions speak louder than words”, and “Judge people by their actions, not their words”. President Obama, you have been duly judged.
