    A great reminder of another significant Obama accomplishment... shutting down our previous world-leading Space Program by essentially neutering NASA by defunding it and consequently forcing America to become dependent on a non-ally (Russia) as the only means of getting to the international Space Station. That was a big technological step backwards for the USA and for the world in general.

    The only reason given for ending our once-proud Space Program was to create additional funding for more social programs... as if any more were (are) needed. We've already gone overboard in our current administration's agenda toward socialism... more-so than at any time in the last century and perhaps even in the entire history of our country.

    For the first time since the Cold War with the Soviet Union was at it's hottest, I sincerely fear for our country's future.
