MOON

I am so tired of explaining this but it’s back in the news after Israel failed in landing an UNMANNED spacecraft on the moon this week.  I get ridiculed all the time I bring this up but I will NEVER trust our government.  We are told what we NEED to hear and are conditioned NOT to question what they tell us.  When is the last time that government got involved and it was good?  Part of my mantra is “trust is earned; not handed out.”  What has our government done to insure your trust?  Let me save you the effort…..NOTHING!  It’s a cesspool of corruption and self entitlements.  Look at everything the government has it’s hands on:  IRS, Social Security, Medicare, etc.  Fail…Fail….Fail.

Let’s look at facts:  Space Shuttle 135 missions to ORBIT the earth.  Shuttles Challenger and Columbia were destroyed during their mission and we lost fourteen astronauts.  The Apollo missions resulted in (sic) six moon landings between 1969-1972.  Now we wanna go back?  The moon race in the 60’s was a race between America and Russia.  We were in a cold war and needed a jolt of nationalism.  Why not go to the moon?  Have you ever been to a space museum and seen the capsule our astronauts returned to orbit in?  I’d feel safer in an AMC Pacer crashing into a pole.  Let’s look at this story in more detail.  This shitty capsule traveled 238,900 miles from the moon and then just drops in the ocean within miles of the awaiting Navy ship?  Is this a ten year old explaining who ate the last piece of cake to his mother?  It doesn’t sink.  It doesn’t burn up.  Astronauts are not impaled upon a remote control stick from an Atari that acted as their compass into the aforementioned ocean?  What the hell is going on here?  This makes absolutely no sense but I, the one that is calling bullshit, am looked upon as a nutball.  I just wanna understand why we need to go back if we have been there before.  Perhaps we never were there?  That makes a lot more sense than what our government has been telling us since 1969.  If you need me…..I’ll be in my bunker.  Thanks for reading.
