In watching the European Space Agency successfully land a satellite on a comet today, I feel so ashamed of this country of mine. This is the kind of daring space mission NASA wouldn't blink an eye at before trying. Now, we can't even launch a cargo ship without the rocket's refurbished Russian engines exploding.
Sure we helped them by letting them use our deep space radio antenna system, but in earlier days we were the whole enchilada, the entire mission would have been American. We stand and watch now.
Sadly, it looks like all the United States is good for anymore is borrowing money from the Chinese to reinforce the Welfare state we've made out of America.
How pathetic we have become.
