#1313: NASA needs to learn English.

Apparently, to NASA, the "outer solar system" is 200,000 miles above the surface of the Earth.

NASA Launches IBEX Mission to Outer Solar System.

Don't get me wrong, this is interesting research, but the damn satellite isn't going anywhere near the outer solar system, so calling this a "mission TO the outer solar system" is just a wee bit disingenuous.

It is a mission which will study the outer solar system, but it's not a mission to the outer solar system. Because, y'know, in order for it to be a mission to the outer solar system it would actually have to go there. Which it isn't doing. In fact, it's not even going outside the Moon's orbit.

Screwed-up kids. The article talks about a book called Queering Elementary Education. The book has been heartily endorsed by Bill Ayers. It contains pro-pedophilia statements.

The book has writings in it by Kevin Jennings, who is Barak Hussein Obama's LGBT fundraising co-chair. (LGBT="Lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgendered".) Jennings wrote this:
Toward the end of my first year, during the spring of 1988, Brewster appeared in my office in the tow of one of my advisees ... to whom I had been "out" for a long time. "Brewster has something he needs to talk with you about," she intoned ominously. ... On a hunch, I suddenly asked, "What's his name?" Brewster's eyes widened briefly, and then out spilled a story about his involvement with an older man he had met in Boston. I listened, sympathized, offered advice. He left my office with a smile on his face. ... ("One Teacher in 10: Gay and Lesbian Educators tell their Stories," Alyson Publications, 1994.)
The writer of the article, Linda Harvey, points out that what Jennings did not do is what any reasonable adult would do in that situation: call the kid's parents and the police, because some "older man" in Boston had committed a felony.

No, instead Mr. Jennings cheerfully covered for his fellow homosexual. I'm not a lawyer, but that might just make him an accessory to the crime.

Look: when homosexual activists tell you they are not about "recruitment", they are lying.

I'm saying this now because once we live in the ObamaNation it'll be illegal to say it.

    Flopped for about 20 min, had some ibuprofen and a shower; now I feel halfway functional. At least enough to eat dinner. Typing no longer hurts. This…

    He's right, this is their perennial response. "If we can't have abortions, then the men have to be sterilized." The theory is that the men must be…
