The End is Near

  1. This saddens me, and yet excites me at the same time. While I think it’s sad that we’re not leading the space exploration efforts anymore (we started it, so we should keep it going!), I really hope that the billions of dollars spent on this effort can be transferred to something more immediately necessary, such as getting us out of debt, increasing the quality of our public education system, keeping more kids off the streets and focused on a safe future, feeding and housing our homeless (basically, working toward making “homeless” an impossibility in this country), and taking care of our veterans. Among other good things.

    But then, I don’t know anything about these decisions and perhaps there are no dollars to transfer. At any rate, there are my two cents. 🙂

    1. If only it were that simple…I am more saddened by the fact that there just doesn’t seem to be any drive in this country anymore to explore new territory simply because it’s there. With no ambition or political will we will continue to fall by the wayside. This is just another symptom of the U.S. beginning it’s free fall from being the top power in the world (my opinion anyway).

      1. I tend to agree with you. With international opinion of Americans and their leadership growing increasingly negative, I think we’re on a downward spiral. We shot ourselves in the foot by trying to be everything to everyone and not supporting ourselves.
