Making people feel good about themselves is a human right, no matter what the cost to others. Especially people who would other wise blow themselves and others to pieces for no apparent reason (other than to make themselves feel good about themselves).
This all makes such perfect sense. It doesn't take rocket science to figger it out.
I certainly hope that hero space turtle Mahmoud does not replace hero space dog Laika in the hearts of The People! Space turtle is great achievement for our Middle Eastern brethren, but one cannot replace such an icon as Laika so easily.
I don't believe this! That's an exact replica of our supposedly top secret replacement for the Space Shuttle. Comrades, we have a spy in our midst.
What a pity - Comrade Whoopie stole MY comment.
Laika the Space Dog
Looks at our glorious
pubic public skools, for exampleage. Nothing is fenir finer than the job our union skool instructers do than make us the wee ones, feel good abouth their akomplishments. We must do the smae for our Mooslicms comradics.
This is a Current Truth Mandate ™ !
PARISH SUCH A THOUGHT, Proletariat Peabody. Laika is of correctiveness! No order of Testudines (please note, that the word is not testicles!) of terrestrial, freshwater, and marine reptiles that have a toothless horny beak and a shell of bony dermal plates usually covered with horny shields enclosing the trunk and into which the head, limbs, and tail usually may be withdrawn could ever replace the People Laika!!
Mrs Al Czarweary
In factualities , I must call PETA for such cruel treatments of turtles.
Ahhhh, it does my doggy heart good to see that Laika will remain forever our #1 glorious space hero! Being of the Canis variety myself, although a much lesser, proletariat breed, of course, I never want to see our dear Laika demoted in the hearts of The People. Long live Laika and the Motherland!!
I was merely attempting to follow Dear Leader's request that we uplift our Muslim brethren, and 'hero' turtle Mahmoud seemed as good a reason as any. When your culture's last major contribution to world culture was
homicide bombing honor killing female subjugation the number zero, you need all the help you can get.

No, no, no! Do you comrades have no sense of history? The world is supported on the backs of three giant elephants, which stand on the back of an enormous turtle which swims in the ocean of the universe.
This is the turtle that the Iranians have launched into space. Considering it's the turtle that the world stands on, launching it into space is as good an item of creative thinking as spending money to save money to get worse health care.
See how this works?
Comrade Theo, I thought the world was held by FOUR elephants standing atop the Great A'Tuin?
But I digress. And switch to an out of karakter moment.
WHY IN THE NAME OF ALL THAT IS F-ING UNHOLY SHOULD A US GOVERNMENT AGENCY TRY TO MAKE MUSLIMS NATIONS "FEEL GOOD" ABOUT THEIR "HISTORIC CONTRIBUTIONS"? IS OBAMA OUT OF HIS MIND? NOT ONLY IS THAT THE MOST CONDESCENDING THING I'VE HEARD IN A LONG TIME, IT IS THE STUPIDEST.
Ack. Seriously. I don't know what's worse. The notion that the Arab world is some poor oppressed group that needs a powerful nation to stroke it's ego and make it feel good about itself, or that the fucking progs think it's a good idea to go out and abase ourselves before them and apologize for throwing rockets into space while they still hump camels and kill people for not praying the right way.
It's the great Obama that holds up the world.
I DENOUNCE ALL OF YOU!
Don't foprget the Fifth Elephant, Colonel. Had it not been for it, the Low King wouldn't be sitting on a gold mine (so long as the BCB concentrations aren't too high).
Mmmm good point, but that is why you are in fact the Brain-In-The-Jar.
It's high time Mooslims were recognized for all of their accomplishments. Mrs. Al Czarweary's idea to send Akmedkillajoo into space is an excellent one, especially, if Laika wouldn't mind sharing the limelight with the longest orbiting Mooslim in the history of the Mooslim world. Bon Voyage, Akmedkillajoo!
Beavis, I have a tear, I am so thrilled. Finally, Mooslimics in space, where they belong. Now to send dear Comrade Ackmoodillyjihads up with them, would be the highest of accomplishments for dearest Leader.
I am so touched I am fighting back a tear.
Mrs Al Czarweary
We must all sing praise to our dear Leader who has brought more "change" to Amerika than we could have envisioned. Mooslimics on the Moon, just where they belong. Now they can blow themselves up with contented pride as they praise their
bloody god., Allaho Aalyakba Jihadakbar?
I don't know what it means because I didn't do it. It doesn't have ThePeoplesCube.com stamp on it.
Just yesterday we spoke with General Secretary about making an image involving National Aeronautics' Submission to Allah, but I was too busy doing other things and forgot about it. And this morning I received this image in the mail, uncredited - as if someone had overheard our conversation. I think it's great. It's well-done and it also saves me time since now I don't have to make it myself.
Perhaps I wasn't clear enough when I wrote about "update through this morning's subspace communication" above. That usually happens when I don't start my sentences with "Let me be absolutely clear." I should say that more often - look how well it works for Obama: he is being more absolutely clear than ever, and we finally can understand him.
And if I'm still being unclear, it's Bush's fault.
ah ha, what a great, well thought out thought - "let me perfectly clear" is the best way to muddle up the factoids and cause deep distraction. Very sly! Thanks to
Allahha Aliha ha, whatever.. and Neil Armstrong!
Comrade Red Square; I find that when one says "Let me be absolutely clear" they are even clearer when holding a Makarov in their hand.
"O M G, I've never heard it called that!! (say what? it's a gun? nah, he was talking about . . . oh really???)"
Silly Frau, everyone knows a Makarov is a Russian fish.
No here is a question that we need an urgent Fatwa on.
When you are in space, which way is Mecca? How do you determine your Qibla?How do you know which way to pray?
I should not be telling you this as it comes from the highest levels of the Party, but it has been discussed that NASA will be returning to the moon!
Yes we will send a few Party elite back to the moon to retrieve the evil kapitalist American Flags that pollute the Moon's pristine surface.
In their place they will leave proper Party approved flags (U.N., Soviet, etc).
Maybe a big hammer and sickle that can be seen from Earth? That would indeed be glorious....
Obamugabe, since Mecca is on Earth, you would pray facing the Earth. Which would be very pleasing to Gaia.
Comrade Neotrotsky, I am so impressed with the quickness of the Obama Reaching Out to Mooslimics Agenda by NASA. Their own TV show make many mooslims feel much better about themselves.
Jihad for Change for All ™ .
Since our Mooslimic comrades pray bent over with their moon facing the moon (I make a wee joke) I would think which ever way they faced, would be mooning their god. Is that not correct?
And I am most assured, their loving kind god,
Alloaha Allajihad.... whatever, will accept whatever bending and facing they do.
Obama NEVER said that NASA should be focused on Muslims. He meant to say that the NSA should be focused on Muslims. It was merely a typo in the teleprompter.
Move along, comrades. Nothing to see here.
NASA at the Crossroads
(From various Internet Articles)
NASA has seen some tough times, but now in 2010, with almost all NASA future work unfunded and effectively canceled, it was time to find a more forward looking and cooperative financier then the U.S. Government. Hearing that banks in Muslim countries are unable to charge interest because of Sharia Law, it appeared the ideal place to go for funding for the future space programs.
First of course the Muslim Countries need to be made to feel an important part of the program and therefore responsible for helping fund it. Hence the new NASA Space Outreach to Muslim countries which do not yet have a space program (other than the nuclear tipped ones).
Friendly Charlie B. got the assignment to glad hand the perspective donors and feel out their wallets when they are distracted. However great plans at the beginning always appear earth-shakingly brilliant, but as the details begin to surface, many overlooked problems must be handled and solved, such as how to get non-Islamic woman astronauts into the Burqa Spacesuits.
And so with great trepidation NASA lunges forward in the greatest gamble in all of funding-land. Never since the days of manned pre-orbital flights, re-entries and the moon landings has NASA entered into such uncertain missions. But wait – don’t the Russians offer space flights to individuals who can pay the price? They sure do.
So friendly Charlie figured a way out of his dilemma. He hired Russian space flight salesmen to go with him to Muslim land, and ended up fully funding NASA all the way through a Muslim Mission to Mars. So all’s well that ends well, and Charlie B is being talked about running for president in 2012, since Mr. O will have previously moved up to higher office.
Obamugabe, in China they refer to mooslims as "asslifters." The idea being that they aren't actually bowing to Mecca in the East, but rather raising their asses to the devil in the West.
Of course we know who the devil in the West really is...America
ummm, "asslifters". Are you sure that is not the procedure lovely Michelle had?
Kommisar of Fatwas
Father Prog Theocritus
Comrades, you have failed utterly to appreciate the reason that Barry O has scrapped a second landing on the moon.
He doesn't want to endanger the breeding grounds of the moonbats.
We can't disturb nesting shit birds, spawning catfish bait, or rodents in heat. How much less important are they than the moonbat?
See how simple it is?
Do you mean Charles BolDEN?
I stand corrected. However I believe humor is the weapon that can best be used against the enemy at hand, and satire is one of its highest levels, and you all are using it very effectively. But I'm 78 years old and probably can't even make it to next Monday, let alone next Tuesday.
“Laughter is the most frightening weapon: laughter can destroy anything, even murder.”
Father Prog Theocritus
David Axelrod has come out with the opinion that laughter should not be permitted except at safe subjects. In other words, there will be no laughter, but sneering at anything which is non-prog is not laughing. That's social criticism and part of the essential fabric of the Progressive World of Next Tuesday.
OK all you progs, I understand, but you can never become as progressive as the Great Stalin, he was so progressive that he killed his enemies while they were still his friends.
Quite so PaleoPalinite...
Q: Is it true that the Soviet Union is the most progressive country in the world?
A: Of course! The life was already better yesterday than it's going to be tomorrow!
And I'm afraid Comrade Whoopie, here too, if we are not successful in stopping certain progress.
Father Prog Theocritus
Hmm. Yes. Killing your enemies while they're still your friends. How did I miss this? Of course it could be because I have no friends. I am the fountain of human kindness--I even refuse to step on a cockroach although a fetus isn't safe around me--but still for some reason people just don't like me.
I don't know why. I only turn them in for their own benefit. I never talk about them except when it's going to help them. And I never steal anything which they could use less well than I do.
Remember Bill Clinton telling us that he could spend our money better than we can? It's that sort of thing.
I understand where you are coming from Commissar Theocritus, and believe me Bill Clinton feels your pain.
It seems most progressives start out working for the common good and end up collecting the common goodies.
Father Prog Theocritus
I quite agree that Allah ought to be able to understand anything; in fact a current Muslim
mouth-breatherscholar wrote a book which stated that trying to figure out say physics was absurd because Allah interfered decisively with everything all the time so why bother?
But then Allah didn't take down the WTC, did he, without help?
However when I was growing up in the Church of Christ, it was a common belief that God didn't hear our prayers unless we finished them with, "In Jesus' name, Amen." Without the Jesus bit God was deaf. That is still the regnant theology.
Ah yes Theo, the holy conundrum: God can not be both omniscient and omnipotent. If he's all knowing, then he knows the eventual outcome which means he can't change it. If he's all powerful then what's the point of knowing the eventual outcome because it's subject to change anytime he wants.
Likewise, if God is good why does he allow evil to exist? Either God is wicked or he lacks the power to put an end to evil. One disqualifies him as good, the other disqualifies him as omnipotent.
Theologists have struggled over these questions for ages.
I guess the main question is whether you struggle over these questions freely and without fear, or do you get your head cut off for this.
Father Prog Theocritus
Red, it took a lot of doing for me not to get my head cut off over refusing to go to church when I was 16 or 17. I'd sit as far from the preacher as possible and instantly go to sleep. Wouldn't stand, pray, sing, or talk. Sulk. Intolerable I'm sure. But it worked.
I've been going to hell forever and I was, without exaggeration, the best-behaved, and highest-achiever in this small town. All from the religion that was poured into me. I literally didn't get over that until I came out of the closet to the world at 51. I'm not making this up.
All those theological questions are moot points in the glorious Amэяican Utopia the Dэaя Lэadэя is striving to
muscle in establish, given that, in Scientific Socialism there is no room for theists and worshipers of God (whatever His name is).
So, do not worry Commisar Theocritus, we shall euthanize all the members of the Church of Christ, as well as most members of all other churches and mosques, once we are done completely bringing the American Republic down.
Turning the attentions of NASA from going to the Moon, or Mars, to worshiping the Moon, and Islamic Theology, is not an effort in aggrandizing the religion of the 7th Century pedophile prophet, but of keeping NASA and the USA from developing new technologies that can be used to slow down the progress of Scientific Socialism.
I give up Oh great leader Red Square, your stinging rebuke, well illustrated, was felt upon my sagging shoulders. But please keep up your site and I will continue to enjoy, even though I don’t usually partake. Also I admire your grasp of the world and especially the state of our state, when you do your prog-off bit.
Here is my exit line for the time being: Some conservatives are claiming the “emperor has no clothes” but they should realize they have completely missed the boat. The emperor has tons of clothes, which he is always decked out in, including $1,000 sneakers. The real problem is not that the emperor has no clothes, but that the cash-cow has no tits left.
And P.S., since you guys started talking religion I leave you with a few short ideas, since my aged position can be described as: We are all going down the same track, it is just that some of us are closer to the terminal than others.
Religion: no one can commuicate about religion unless one defines his terms. One can define God as the creator of the Universe and the Universe as everything, known and unknown, and maybe some unknowable by us in the physcial part of the universe. Our Founders probably had it right that God created man to be free. But the evidence is that God does not micromanage the physical world and bad things do happen to good people. But the most important lesson is that being born free does not come with any further guarantees, one must fight to stay free.
In our physical part of the universe nothing happens without a difference in time. However there is the possibility that a part of the universe has no time dimension at all. This may be where the non-physical part of us, which can be defined as our soul, goes after our body and brain dies and rots. It could be that the soul, which we can also call our mind, is anchored to our physical body by the brain, and at death the soul/mind is released while the brain becomes worm food.
This means our mind is likely more than the sum of the parts of the brain and may even be able to participate in extra-sensory communication, just as that lady with the tea leaves and funny cards says. Isn’t that possibility fun to think about?
And finally since the universe is likely full of unknowns, and unknowns were supposed to be invented by the Arab Muslims, be it known that the Muslim leaders who recruit suicide terrorists are playing a giant joke on them. There is no way all the physical bodies that die can be transported to some place up in the clouds, eating feasts and having sex, etc. There is no sex or feasts in heaven because without a physical body there is no need, nor even a capability. Can you imagine what would happen to all the nice white clouds if every person who ever went to heaven ate and took a crap up there every day?
Too bad guys, you terrorists who wanted sex in heaven but didn’t use your equipment on earth, you lost your only chance, and we have the last laugh!
(I hope to get my blog up before the end of this year, my URL will be TheInterestingTimes.com).
Father Prog Theocritus
Without question there is some sort of extra-sensory perception; my mother twice knew that something had happened to me and either called or showed up, completely and totally atypically. But there is nothing that I've seen which violates the dimension of time (although it's physically possible to travel back in time, I'm told).
But that means that we don't know how to measure it yet, just as we don't know how to do many things. We have an understanding say of cancer but it's by no means complete. If it were it would be conquered. It's not like interstellar travel, where we are not even without shouting distance of the technology.
I have seen no evidence of a soul. I'm not averse to it, but I just haven't seen it.
