What the goddamn fuck? Ever heard of being literate or understanded?
It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; because there is not effort without error and shortcomings; but who does actually strive to do the deed; who knows the great enthusiasm, the great devotion, who spends himself in a worthy cause, who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement and who at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly. So that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat.

So I've just gotten to the point that I'm too curious to keep quiet. Please, tell me how exactly you think communism works, and how you could make communism work? As you've claimed Gothos is ignorant, I'm very very anxious to see your answer to this.

Personally I'm impressed at the amount of talking points he got into such a short space. Let's see...Rich people are job creators? Check. Rich people are unfairly maligned and victimised? Check. Big government is bad? Check. All leftists are either communists or socialists? Check. Leftists are also ignorant and/or elitist? Check.

Very nice work. He should run for President.

If you couldn't tell initially from my tone... I'm being sarcastic. I'm probably one of the more anti-communist/socialist people here. I'm just throwing barbs at the political left. Posted Image

Can a mod or admin start a left vs. right thread and transfer the related posts to it so we can get back to talking about space in this one?

Apologies RaRugged, It was hard to figure out what was happening with the all caps (generally known as shouting, in a text medium from my understanding)

Making fun of Gothos is one thing -- he's awesome, but he can take care of himself quite well I'm sure -- but what you've done to poor, innocent sarcasm in this thread...the way you've abused it so offhandedly, unashamedly...it's unforgivable.

P.S. the space program is wonderful and necessary (on topic!).

I wish Canada would spend more money on our space program... or that we had more money to spend on it.

Yeah, this is one of those things that's always bugged me. We invented the Canadarm...and what did we do with it? We gave it to the States to use.

Sadly, I doubt we will ever see a Canadian Space Program, the country just doesn't have the money and the politicians that run Canada are a study in idiocy right now.

The States were our only real hope for furthering Space exploration close-by and now that's gone (at least for now)...so I guess we turn to China as being the leader in that era now...hell they might get more done, who knows.

If we don't have money, just open space up to the private sector. Technology and innovation will probably be accomplished faster and more efficiently.

Yes, there's a entrepreneur risk, but when isn't there one?

It is open to the private sector. SpaceX to name just one, though I believe there are 3 or 4 more, I dont remember by name.
