We could have been on Mars, but we had to fund Black-Run America (BRA). In minutes the space shuttle Atlantis will launch, ending 30 years of that program. As that shuttle enters into space, leaving earth behind, all the hopes and dreams of continued exploration will fade into the history books.

As Huntsville, Alabama – the city that once was home to some of NASA’s top minds- d escends into chaos at the hands of its Black population, the replicas of rockets around the town are a reminder of all that we have lost. The cacophony of Black people complaining about the failure of the racial gap in education to close is a reminder of all that we have gained.

Here, from The Huntsville Times , is a story that illustrates something insane about modern Americans:

While some astronauts are waxing nostalgic about the final flight of the space shuttle program planned for today, UAB’s resident astronaut says ending the program could be a boon for science.

Larry DeLucas, who spent two weeks in orbit on space shuttle Columbia in 1992, is optimistic about the future of commercial rockets, which he thinks can carry experiments and researchers into space more cheaply and safely than the shuttle. NASA is shuttering the shuttle after 30 years, and private companies and other countries will now carry crews and cargo to the International Space Station.

“I don’t think it’ll stop us from doing anything,” he said. “I think it’s going to be a new way to explore space.”

As he does, he’ll think of two moments he remembers most fondly from his own shuttle journey. One was when the crystals his experiments were based on finally started to grow; he was too excited to sleep that night, he said. The other was seeing Kuwait’s oil fields burn in the aftermath of the first Gulf War as he looked down at the unbordered globe backed by millions of stars.

“You know that there’s wars going on, but you look down and there’s no lines and everybody’s together,” he said. “I don’t know how to describe the feeling I had. That feeling made me realize how we’re all connected.”

Unbordered globe backed by millions of stars? No lines and everybody’s together? We’re all connected? When you look at this unbordered world from space, you can see the illumination from major metropolitan areas that show how ‘unbordered’ the world is and you get a perfect picture of human acheivement courtesy of being among those stars.

Instead of continuing to forge ahead ‘for all mankind’ and explore the heavens, we must watch as major American cities enact emergency curfews – normally reserved for wartime or natural disaster – to keep Black people from burning them down.

We could have been on Mars, but we had to fund Black-Run America. Always remember that as you look up at the stars on a dark night and see them shining back at you.

    Ret'd LAPD here. Interesting story but I hope you will cover the atrocity in Grand Rapids by a black guy, who just killed 7 people and then himself after being holed up in a house with the three people held hostage. Cookie Thornton, Omar Thornton, Lovell Mixon, Maurice Clemons, now Rodrick Shonte Dantzler. I'm hope you will post more names to jog everyone's memories.

  2. I've written a short post on that lights picture, calling it perhaps the most concise and powerful illustration of HBD.

    Hey, your resident Hispanic here again…I have to say how disappointed I am about the cuts to funding to the space program which will effectively end the quest of American space travel as a government endeavor. I grew up on “Star Trek”, “Space 1999” and other such shows and am a big fan of “Battlestar Galactic” (have seen both, prefer reimagined) so, as that little girl that dreamed, it is a hard hit to take.
    I don’t know whole lot about the real science of it, but the very idea of it has always been exciting to me. I pushed one of my kids in that direction though he has the intellect; he does not have the desire (insert sadness here). I do think, however, that opening space travel up to private companies could in fact; result in progress we have not seen before. At least I hope so. Profits are a big motivator. I wouldn’t count out space exploration/travel /finding like planets out just yet. There’s a whole lotta kids that are now adults that grew up with that dream that are now in a position to make it happen. I think they will.

    Racist garbage such as this makes me thank God that white people are a dwindling aggreived race and black people are exploding.

    White people are the cuase of all the world's problems. I ak white but I reject it in order to be a human being along with my People of Color brtheren.

    Whites are dying out (white women PREFERE non white men) and that is a good thing.

    @ SBPDL: When you write, "We could of been on Mars," you are making a grammatical error. The correct way of writing this would be this:

    "We could've been on Mars…"

    Or this:

    "We could have been on Mars…"

    Many people mistakenly use the word "of" in the contractions for "could have," "should have," and would have." Please take note.

    Thanks.

    Anyway, I still love this blog.

  6. "The 'unbordered' world from space. Why is that one continent in the middle so dark?"

    LOL! After all, it is called the "dark" continent for a reason-correct?

  7. Sigh ….. Maybe someday aliens will come and take all of the jigaboos away.

  8. Sigh … Maybe someday aliens will come and take all of the jigaboos away.

  9. I was listening to sports talk radio in Philadelphia the other day when I thought of SBPDL when one of the PC leftwing talk show hosts blurted out how if it wasn't for GWB screwing up the economy that "we" would heading to Mars soon.

  10. I was acquainted with an intelligent, educated Black man when we first landed on the moon. He didn't care, and thought it a waste of money. I think that such achievements are an intolerable reproach to lesser peoples', an in-your-face declaration of White ability that they can't match.

  11. "Could have" NOT "could of". You don't have to approve this comment, but please correct the error.

    My usual over analytic perspective was open to me recently over this, I was floored to say the least in my reaction. Any term I use to describe this travesty is still the grossest understatement of our modern times.

    A similar face slapping idea was told to me by my dad once. He told me about 2 years ago. "Food stamps is the equivalent of modern day soup and bread lines." That did it too. Wow, were screwed. Something so objective was in my face the whole time.

    Idk if BRA is to blame here so much as "seeing Kuwait's oil fields burn in the aftermath of the first Gulf War as he looked down at the unbordered globe." The arms race aided the space race, but the wars in the Middle East do not. Or as AJ&co would say, the control grid is already in place.

  17. "We could have been on Mars, but we had to fund Black-Run America."

    What a great slogan. Too bad it isn't at all true. I think, generally, the space race ended because the Soviet Union was obliterated. There's nothing like a good Commie-Cappie rivalry to get the juices flowing!

  18. Thanks for the correction on top guys. I had it right on the bottom, but was so enamored in watching the shuttle launch I tried to get this up really quick.

    Lots of news breaking today (and since I have the day off…) I've been trying to cataloging it for importance.

    It might be time for a good old fashioned, truth, justice and the America way post.

    This is really off topic. But I've just been blocked by a Detroit newspaper because I had the audacity to ask whether all seven victims gunned down by a black felon in Grand Rapids yesterday are white.

    It looks like they are other than the half breed kid who resulted from the felon and his mudshark. He also killed the mudshark's parents who were helping to raise the half breed. Then he gunned down another ex-girlfriend (mudshark), her sister, and the sister's young white daughter.

    You know this story is going to disappear fast. Yesterday, it was national news.

  20. Anon at 10:52 AM: It is good that you reject your Whiteness to join your People of Color brtheren. Don't let the door hit you in the ass when you leave.
    BTW, you're not planning on crawling back when the brothers kick your silly butt, are you? Or when the EBT card runs out? Or when the electricity is cut off? You see, if we shed the burden of useless Darks, we're not going to be welcoming useless Whites in their place.

    If ever one of your posts cried for additonal video it is this one. Please consider:

    Gives me goose bumps every time. Reminds me of my childhood days… I read and re-read the space-articles in popular science magazines until the ink came off. Then, becoming a technician on a soon-to-be-built space station seemed like a viable career option.

    Now of course the world needs not space explorers but social workers pampering crack babies. This situation is probably what the wordsmiths thought of when they coined the phrase "sad regression".

  22. Anon at 2:16: Sorry to hear about the dead, non-miscegenating Whites. The others are not our problem.

    You write: Whites are dying out (white women PREFERE non white men) and that is a good thing.

    I respond: How did that work out for those two mudsharks in Grand Rapids? Seems that THEY are the whites dying out with most of their families! You really think that's a good thing? Maybe you too can bring home a jiggy to meet mom and dad.

  24. OneSTDV,

    I tried to find the link at your page for the article on that picture (so I could link it here) but can't find it. Could you supply it in either the comments section or in a e-mail?

  25. Beef Curtains: The Soviet Union folded 20 years ago. The space shuttles have been busy until now, as have the Mars crawlers and the Hubble telescope. There may not have been a space race, since it takes two to race, but we have certainly been active. But now we're shutting it down. "We" need the money to spend on "human needs", that is, people who can't take care of themselves.

    i feel like today is really a sad day for this country. regardless of the many problems at NASA i.e lack of true vision after landing on the moon and being a political football for the right and the left. their contributions to science and discovery were absolutely worthwhile. i hope but sincerely doubt that private space companies will find effective ways to monetize space. remember this day readers of SBPDL i think it marks the technological decline of the United States.

    Certain white women may like black males but the smart ones will settle for ANYTHING BUT a dim-witted negro.
    So dumbo here is convinced whites are the most racist towards dah people of colour ( meaning blacks exclusively, of course )? You obviously haven't been around other ethnic groups to make such a foolish statement.
    You be watching too mush ove dah mainstream teevee Tyrone, wake up!

    I recently read a book called 1421, which makes a very strong case that China had the world's most advanced navy actually reached America in 1421. They had ships 20 times the size of the Nina, Pinta, and Santa Maria, which held livestock and live plants for a worldwide voyage. Unfortunately, in 1422 a series of tragedies led to the royal family completely gutting the navy and forbidding any foreign exploration. China went into isolation and gave up on exploration. In 1492 European domination of the American continent began.

    The layers of irony here are manifold. We have a black president, whom liberals would label as a leader of those disenfranchised by Columbus, overseeing the end of an era of space exploration, while China is on a once in an eon industrial revolution. Think back to this day in 20 years when China is setting up restaurants on the moon.

  29. I'd say Black men are equally as hypocritical as Strom Thurmond, decrying Black people existing while he had sex with Black women. Rev. Wright is known for his fondness for Married White women, as was Martin Luther King Jr. Albert Haynesworth says in his sexual assault trial he is not even attracted to Black women. Ice-T married a White woman. So did OJ Simpson. Tiki Barber dumped his pregnant Black wife for a White girl of 19.

    But for White women to exist, so must White men. Just as Black, and Asian, and Hispanic women need their men to exist. Without any White men there will be no White women born.

    As for the Space program, it is a shame to see it end.

  30. Paul, I'm guessing that posts are no longer moderated as we have all these dumb negros posting venom.

    Today was a glorious day for BRA the end of American dominance in space. Unemployment is up, the economy is in the shitter and the Race of Failures is running wild in the streets.
    That's the Change the DWL and pathetic negros wished for.
    As always keep your powder dry and segregation now and forever!

  31. Steve,

    I let it slip. Today I was out doing sprints, heavy weight-training and heavy bag work. Didn't even read the comments when I approved them. It's just been that kind of week.

    I know I shouldn't make predictions, but Indianapolis is going to have some horrible violence this weekend. I'm tempted to fly there tomorrow. Tempted…

    The Black Expo has started there and if last year was any indication – and based on how Blacks are Behaving in Milwaukee, Cleveland, Chicago, Mobile, Baltimore, Newark, Atlanta, etc. – it's going to be a wild weekend.

    You'll know I've completely lost it if you try and post and you don't have to have your comment approved. The weekend of the first uncontrollable Black riot, I'll do that. The comments will be open. No moderation.

    Really? Black people are literally exploding, like M80's or hand grenades? Where?

    If only they would all just explode, instead of leeching off us White taxpayers one minute, robbing, raping, maiming, and killing us White taxpayers the next, and then whining about how "oppressed" and "disenfranchised" they all are by us White taxpayers after that.

    This is more evidence that we are most definitely a nation in decline. Who would have thought that after we landed on the moon 40 years ago that American space exploration would end with a whimper? This is not the future that Robert Heinlein imagined. Even dystopian science fiction stories by Philip K. Dick or other SF writers during the seventies imagined that space travel would continue as conditions deteriorated elsewhere. I remember reading a novel by Octavia Butler (a black womean) which was set in a depressing dystopian future, but it also had news reports of man landing on Mars as a contrast to the post-apocalypse like setting on Earth. Our current situation is much more horrible. I wonder what writers like Jerry Pournelle think of our current situation.

    The irony never ends. Niggers using machines invented by whites – machines they could never even have imagined – to bash whites as the evil of the world, while holding themselves on high.

    They really, REALLY, believe that should white people cease to exist, all this funky shit we invented will just continue to magically appear for their pleasure. Like in Detroit.

    It's un-fucking-believable.

    OK….go live in any successful "people of color" society you can find anywhere on the globe. Haiti? Detroit? Zimbabwe? The point is, ther is no such thing, you effing moron. Blacks have never, in the history of the world, ever created a successful, properous society. The day when whites are no longer around will be the day the the West becomes one big Third-World shithole. By the way, one of your numerous spelling errors included the word "aggrieved."

    No, you should peacefully engage the negro rioters, and politely ask them to go home and get some rest.

    Any other dumb fucking questions?

  40. "…this makes me thank God that white people are a dwindling aggreived race and black people are exploding."

    Makes me thank God that Hispanics are doing to blacks what blacks do to everyone else.

    Only blacks are racist. There is no such thing as non-black racism.

    What happened to our imagination in this country? What happened to our ability to dream? I guess we who still have such dreams have had to give in to the bunch that used to moan "we need to take care of our problems here first." Funny, I don't think the problems will be any closer to solved ten years from now when the Chinese go to Mars instead of us.

    Obama has no imagination and no sense. How could anybody with these two gifts have gutted our space program without a qualm and even with a giggle? If I had had to do such a thing, I would have had to compose myself so as not to weep openly. The man has all the depth of a puddle.

  42. I ak white but I reject it in order to be a human being along with my People of Color brtheren.

    Who is going to pay for welfare and Section 8 when there are no whites left?

  43. Wait a sec, if there is an uncontrollable riot of any stripe, should we really be at our computers typing a comment on a blog?!

    As opposed to doing what? Traveling to the location of the riot and joining in?

  44. Helping the snipers with alibis?
