Anyone remember the News story earlier last month when President Obama announced that he was slashing 100 billion dollars from the NASA budget that was to return astronauts to the moon? At that time the President said that the program was over -budget, behind schedule and he didn’t think it was important enough to fund at that level. He further went on to say other programs like science and earth observation posts were more important. Even though both President and myself, likewise an arm-chair scientist with no experience, knowledge or background training in science and engineering , agreed on this cut I was under the impression that this 100 billion dollars would be used elsewhere for some “substantial” need of the American people. What will this money be spent on you say? Well let me bring you up to date. Mr. Obama has directed NASA to find ways to spend this money in Muslim countries. One hundred billion to boost the economy and good will amongst those trying to slit our citizen’s throats.

An article written by Mark Matthews in the Orlando Sentinel on February 16th had this to say;

WASHINGTON — NASA Administrator Charlie Bolden said Tuesday that President Barack Obama has asked him to “find ways to reach out to dominantly Muslim countries” as the White House pushes the space agency to become a tool of international diplomacy.
“In addition to the nations that most of you usually hear about when you think about the International Space Station, we now have expanded our efforts to reach out to non-traditional partners,” said Bolden, speaking to a lecture hall of young engineering students.

Specifically, he talked about connecting with countries that do not have an established space program and helping them conduct science missions. He mentioned new opportunities with Indonesia, including an educational program that examines global climate change.
“We really like Indonesia because the State Department, the Department of Education [and] other agencies in the U.S. are reaching out to Indonesia as the largest Muslim nation in the world. We would love to establish partners there,” Bolden said.
As a presidential candidate, Obama espoused a space program that invited more participation from the international community and Deputy NASA Administrator Lori Garver said recently that the next time NASA lands on the moon it would be part of an international exploration effort.
This is another of those “You had better call your congressmen” to voice your opposition items. We at the Corrector hereby take back both of the positive comments about the President Obama Administration that we were able to muster this past year and hereby move him into the 100% “IDIOT” column.

  1. Thanks to President Cheney and his Crony Bush we have not only spent billios in Muslim countries for about 10 yrs. now. They even have thrown in thousands of our kids lives for their false war. Yep, you guys are a kick.

  2. Bill it says in these Nasa articles that we are partnering with these Muslim nations which is not the same as spending money for defense or militarily. Where did Bush and Cheney use government dollars to partner with Muslim business? Some private business dollars partnered with some oil companies which I also don’t like but I can’t find anything about tax dollars. Enlighten us please

    And I also agree that wrong is wrong no matter what party done did it I didn’t read this post as against all Democrats, only against Obamas bad decisions

  3. Yea Bill we know everything is all Bush’s fault. But is it now ok for Obama to do this to make things even. Always about political partys instead of being mad at someone you voted for because he can do no wrongs like the former guy did. You are the kick bill

  4. Forget who's fault is what. Did you ever stop to consider that these few three hundred and fifty some?? congress people are spending all this money and doing these wasteful things that hurt millions and millions of Americans

    Why don't the masses rise up and stop this? It is time for a new party that represents the millions instead of the chosen few
