Well there it is. It is pretty much a carbon copy of the US Mars Mission - or at least the sky crane portion of it is. Their rover appears to be a rip off of the American counterparts. Nothing surprising there. The clippers can copy and emulate, but their cultural mindset still punishes and discourages the innovators and the 'out of the box' thinkers.
My first political argument with Mom was when I was six or seven - and I was hopping mad and spitting nails because those fuggin Americans had just mothballed the Apollo program. Were they friggin nuts?!?! Mom said that the program cost millions of dollars that would better be spent here on earth. At the time, this monkey on the bongos was putting the debate to poetry, rhythm and rhyme:
"So you cancel the space program so this monkey on the bongos can pay his bills?" I said incredulously. I wasn't a racist in those days, jokes abounded about monkeys on the bongos regardless of their colour. It was a thing at the time too... I had friends with bongos. But mom was aware of the racial overtones and told me to stop talking like that. "Why is it that he can't pay his bills but you can, then?" I asked. Mom explained that those shitty Americans treated their blacks like dirt - and flounced off in a huff, grumbling that I would understand when I was older. Pop, I knew, would explain it right as he usually did. "Don't argue with your mother," he said in that special tone that meant, "I don't get it either, but it's not worth fighting about..."
And of course today, every time ya turn around the blacks are chimping out and looting, burning and assaulting people because RACISM!!!! How many billions have been flushed down those guys in 50 years? NASA is a friggin joke compared to their glory days, the Chinks will have space based commercial commerce going whilst I struggle to pay my bills...and blacks still live in poverty and squalor despite the billions doled out to them. I heard that the big universities and colleges are starting to dispense with advanced mathematics and STEM courses because blacks can't compete in them and that's because everyone is racist.
You can only blame the blacks up to a point. We cave in to shitty liberal women and their soys when we shouldn't. But now...maybe some things ARE worth fighting about, and maybe bending over and pulling down your pants to keep the peace isn't worth it anymore? We are committing cultural suicide with this so that we don't have to fight with lunatics and idiots that want to feel good about themselves and never will.
And then maybe Pop is right too. How do you fight lunacy like this without baseball bats, brass knuckles and guns? Because short of those, these idiots are not going to go back into their cages and closets willingly. Maybe it's just best to let the chinks take care of it for us when when the loons pull the roof down and we get conquered by the clippers.
Once our Chinese overlords take over and the blacks are shipped off to the work camps and organ farms, maybe I will make my way in the new Chinese bars as a penniless poet banging on the bongos and spouting bad verse.
