OBAMA: NASA TO REACH OUT TO MUSLIMS

Obama is keeping his promise. He IS changing this God Damned America!! Yipee!

"In a far-reaching restatement of goals for the nation’s space agency, NASA administrator Charles Bolden says President Obama has ordered him to pursue three new objectives: to “re-inspire children” to study science and math, to “expand our international relationships,” and to “reach out to the Muslim world.” Of those three goals, Bolden said in a recent interview with al-Jazeera, the mission to reach out to Muslims is “perhaps foremost,” because it will help Islamic nations “feel good” about their scientific accomplishments.

“NASA is not only a space exploration agency,” Bolden concluded, “but also an earth improvement agency.”

Orlando Sentinel:

"......Obama “will direct NASA to concentrate on Earth-science projects – principally, researching and monitoring climate change…”

Joe Bell, writing for the North Star National:

"Perhaps Obama should put NASA in charge of next year’s Earth Day celebration. Yes, good people want to make the world a better place but different agencies have different objectives and NASA has been thrown off its primary mission.

Obama’s NASA assignment is consistent with his worldview that America must stop sending a message of competition abroad, open the Peter, Paul and Mary songbook and invite friends and foes to meet at the campfire for a hootenanny. That attitude may gain traction at summer camp but in the world of international affairs such displays of gullibility unfortunately make one appear weak, incapable and inexperienced."

I think all he's saying is that muslims should get more involved with science and cosmology. This is a good thing for all of us.

If we can teach muslims about astrophysics and evolution, hopefully they'll stop believing in their silly fairy tales and become sane and productive members of society.

A proper education is the best and possibly only way to cure Islam.

I am assuming the above is a joke, much of our modern mathematics comes from Arabic roots. But making Islamic nation relations one of a three-legged mission from Obama to his NASA administrator is dumb and has nothing to do with the agency's raison d'être.

You forget that the guy is damn near half MUSLIM HIMSELF, of course he is gonna reach out to them and play the great diplomatic one and go boldly where no cracka president has gone before. It's just a trifling shame he doesn't understand that redirecting the mission and objectives of a historical-and importantant agency like NASA is a foolish move and one I would expect a first or second grader to make if given the task of running the day to day operations of our entire country.

Great, now we'll give Islamic terrorists the knowledge they need to build rockets, and to maybe even go all Jihadi on the Moon.
