US Space Program Coming To a Sad End

I never would have believed this would be true 30 or 40 years ago... but sadly it is so. This brings us to the quote of the week. Unbelievable... yet the government is spending trillions on trinkets and asphalt and bailing out car companies and fixing a medical system that doesn't need their kind of fixing.

"America's manned space program is in shambles.

Fourteen months from today, for the first time since 1962, the U.S. will be incapable not just of sending a man to the moon but of sending anyone into Earth orbit.
We'll be totally grounded. We'll have to beg a ride from the Russians or perhaps even the Chinese." - Charles Krauthammer
