Culture Wars ← Previous post Next post → Comments Petercat Apr 24 2017 at 8:49 pm Now that’s a great twofer! A (kinda) man on mars. Obama as far away as we can send him, permanently! RegT Apr 26 2017 at 8:52 pm As a halfrican, perhaps he could simply be sent halfway there? Sort of a solar-system time capsule? I’d certainly pitch in so that Michaelle could be sent with him. epilitimus Apr 24 2017 at 8:55 pm Good in the short term. In the long term though not a good idea to crap where you may one day eat. Why would we want to spread the virus of socialism/progressivism to yet another world? (sigh) guess I’ll just have to build my asteroid base to escape the contamination. Malatrope Apr 25 2017 at 12:06 am The contamination would be limited to at most a mile of the landing spot. Or smear, such as it were. epilitimus Apr 25 2017 at 12:13 am Viruses don’t die (at least not that one) They just go dormant. Old Codger Apr 25 2017 at 4:55 am I’ve always wondered how something which isn’t really alive can die? Does that mean Obozo is immortal? Bill G Apr 25 2017 at 6:28 am His ideas and ideology are immortal, although logic should have killed them long ago. And yet people keep ignoring Venezuela and supporting Bern-out. doc Apr 25 2017 at 9:40 am No, the better term would be “undead” Bill G Apr 24 2017 at 9:01 pm A very artistic deal, indeed. formwiz Apr 24 2017 at 9:07 pm If you think Americans were united for that worthy cause, you should have heard all the whining from the Lefties about why that money wasn’t being spent on the poor and blacks. But I do like the idea of President Pissy the first lesbian on Mars. Merle Apr 24 2017 at 9:19 pm Will there be room for more passengers? 🙂 Deplorable B Woodman Apr 24 2017 at 10:56 pm Pee-lousi, UpChuck Shroomer, “Maverick” (gigglesnort!!) McPain (if he survives the liftoff), Mummified Mitch, etc, etc. So many “volunteers”, so little……uhhhh…..so much……space. And as for “fouling the future nest” with socialism, who says they’ll survive that long? Just consider them as future fertilizer. Old Codger Apr 25 2017 at 5:01 am I’d be happy if it was just him and Hildabeast aboard. I suspect Willy Jeff would be, too. MasterDiver Apr 25 2017 at 6:48 am “The cowards never left home, the weak died along the way….” Zar Belk! JTC Apr 25 2017 at 10:21 am Nooooo! Do NOT let McCain’t on board that craft, he will fuck up the systems, bail out to save his own sorry ass, and ditch the rocket right back on our heads spreading pestilence and deadly disease over us all. I mean can’t we learn from his history so as not to repeat it? Maverick’s ass. Deplorable B Woodman Apr 25 2017 at 7:21 pm Put ’em all into cold sleep before autopilot launch. NotYetInACamp Apr 24 2017 at 9:31 pm Ya! Ya! Ya! That would really fulfill Obama’s stated goal for NASA and his directive to the head of NASA to extend Muslim self esteem. First Muslim on Mars. Interventor Apr 24 2017 at 10:30 pm Surely, Manchelle can go, too. John Apr 25 2017 at 3:24 pm There are quicker and far less expensive ways to get a Muslim to heaven. JTC Apr 25 2017 at 4:05 pm Yep, got a good supply of these right there in Texas… http://www.msn.com/en-us/news/world/wild-boars-overrun-islamic-state-position-kill-3-militants/ar-BBAmjUs?li=BBnb7Kz&ocid=mailsignout Muzzies, Mexxies, Progs and RINOs, they will take care of them all and not leave a sign, except maybe for some pig shit…especially apropos for the muzzies, yes? silvergreycat Apr 24 2017 at 9:50 pm Mr. Trump can work with Mars One, disregarding a fatwa while doing so, about getting Mr. Obama on board… http://www.mars-one.com/news/press-releases/mars-ones-response-to-the-fatwa-issued-by-the-general-authority-of-islamic NotYetInACamp Apr 25 2017 at 9:08 pm If contact then death or burial with pig eliminates them from the Great Deceiver’s paradise, then how so much more first being passed through a pig’s digestive system? It is a mental virus. Sharia Law is the evil coding. Pamela Apr 24 2017 at 10:09 pm Trump cannot send the O’Brat up there no matter how tempting it sounds. We do not need the O’Brat growing vegetables or WEED to claim Mars and rule it as Emperor O’Brat. Stephanie Osborn Apr 24 2017 at 10:23 pm The Martian soil, according to our rovers, is toxic. It has high concentrations of perchlorate salts (as, most likely, does the “salt” slurry water that has been discovered remotely). Contrary to what Hollywood and the media depict, we don’t even know if plants can grow in real Martian soil, and we don’t know if they’d be edible if they could. There have been some attempts to try to recreate the soil in the lab and grow stuff in it, but we don’t know for sure if we’ve replicated it closely enough. This sort of thing is why I have been saying for years that the popular notion of going straight to Mars to build a colony, with no advance prep or boots-on-the-ground exploration, is just asking for Roanoke II. NotYetInACamp Apr 24 2017 at 10:35 pm Joining epilitimus on asteroids is sounding better. epilitimus Apr 25 2017 at 12:02 am All are welcome provided: 1) you don’t whine and 2) you don’t expect anyone to take care of you. NotYetInACamp Apr 25 2017 at 12:43 am I was thinking about setting up my own asteroid base. Then I would be responsible for myself and set it up for others to join me. Thanks for the offer. I might visit for a short spell to swap construction ideas. Strength in separate numbers and all that. Bill G Apr 25 2017 at 6:32 am Like a Rolling Stone. (The Stone Family, not the rock group.) Pamela Apr 24 2017 at 11:25 pm I’d rather see him either on Mercury or one of the gas giants. Vince Apr 25 2017 at 12:06 am He might inflate one of the gas giants though. silvergreycat Apr 25 2017 at 1:26 am How about Venus… https://solarsystem.nasa.gov/planets/venus/indepth RegT Apr 26 2017 at 9:02 pm Just be sure to keep him away from Uranus. Deplorable B Woodman Apr 24 2017 at 11:44 pm That’s all right. Just send muzzies up to Mars to explore, somewhat like invading armies (koff! Islam! koff!) use prisoners to walk ahead to find the hidden mines, ambushes, and booby traps. That “boots on the ground” enough for you? Halley Apr 25 2017 at 1:54 am Following Curiosity as an avid amateur, my impression has been that Mars must have been a very watery planet in its distant past, and that water = life (or former life), but maybe that’s way optimistic…? KenH Apr 24 2017 at 10:14 pm Sure he can; do it, like some of the original ideas for one-way to the moon — work out getting the guys back later. Except, BOINGO, is a one-way flight. AND, like that Solomon Epstein guy in the Expanse, accidentally on purpose, MISS the orbit, jam the gas on, and aim for deep space…. Malatrope Apr 25 2017 at 12:09 am Work the orbit just right and it wouldn’t take much fuel at all to miss Mars and spend eternity going ’round and ’round, passing the Earth every few years. We could point up at night and explain to our grandchildren that this is what they can expect if they grow up to be schmucks… Delilah T. Apr 24 2017 at 10:14 pm No return trip. Heh. Some of the colonists in the New World were deported from England because they could not stop being petty criminals. Read Moll Flanders. Defoe was only reporting what he knew about. Moll represented many women. And then there was Botany Bay. Although it does seem attractive to send the useless twits who want to rid the world of the ‘stain of humans’, I think they are prime candidates to go first. One way ticket. Unfortunately, Menkar (Alpha Ceti) is not a good candidate as it has used up its hydrogen and is coming to the end of its starry life in the Whale. (Alpha Ceti was the actor for Ceti Alpha in the Wrath of Khan, in case you’ve forgotten.) Anyway, someone has to start going, so it might as well be the biggest troublemakers, right? Right? NotYetInACamp Apr 24 2017 at 10:27 pm And then Obama really CAN BE the First MOM – Muslim on Mars. All of them claim to have a superior culture. let’s not let that culture’ goats do something like they did when the Muslims firat broke out of the Saudi peninsula and ate all the North African Christians farm crops when the superior Muslims put their average 60 goats per family in the farmer dhimini inferior Christians fields to feed the goats. There is a large identifiable silt layer deposited in the Mediterranean Sea off South Africa where the farm topsoil of North Africa washed into the sea after the Muslim owned goats ate all of everything in the Christian’s farm fields. Talk about Muslim’s self esteem growing. Those were some fat Muslim goats grown back then. NotYetInACamp Apr 24 2017 at 10:32 pm Pardon mi. off North Africa. i was thinking about the damage the Muslims did to Western Civilization’s and Christianity’s bread basket of Egypt that was damaged and taken from Christendom by that Muslim jihad outbreak. The Nile is South of the Mediterranean. Mental brain poof. Those early Muslim victories helped bring about staggered Dark Ages in different parts of Europe and in Western Civilization. epilitimus Apr 25 2017 at 12:10 am https://twitter.com/PrisonPlanet/status/856496741000065024 According to the progs we are supposed to feed them, house them, educate them, keep them healthy, and protect them. Sounds an awful lot like a pet to me. And that is a pet I would absolutely give up to keep a Muslim neighbor happy. My dogs? Are you insane? NotYetInACamp Apr 25 2017 at 12:35 am If I got a Muslim neighbor, I would have to get dogs again. Right now i will not take that responsibility. Dogs can tell friend from foe very well. My family and tribe has been attacked by Muslims for over 600 years. I know who my foe is. Reality is Reality. Islam is Islam. So far we have survived and kicked them out. I really ought to visit the tribe someday soon. This entire tweet and comments almost entices me to get Twitter for the first time ever. More tracks in the cosmos of the ether. The tweet writer authors some good educated stuff, and amusing stuff, and more. Kudos. Deplorable B Woodman Apr 25 2017 at 12:46 am NYIAC, “A is A”. Sound familiar? JTC Apr 24 2017 at 10:55 pm Why does this toon have me thinking of this? BANG! ZOOOOM! To da moon, Alice! Deplorable B Woodman Apr 24 2017 at 11:02 pm Chris, next time, a spew alert, if you please? I’m just glad I had nothing liquid about me when I read the third panel. That one’s a real guffaw. JTC Apr 24 2017 at 11:08 pm ABORT! https://www.nytimes.com/2017/04/24/science/peggy-whitson-nasa-trump.html?_r=0 Can’t pollute the astro-firma before Peggy gets there… Let DT Ralph just deep-space BO Alice…that’d be a one-way ticket for sure. epilitimus Apr 24 2017 at 11:59 pm How about this. We send him (and selected others) in the other direction, to the near orbit solar observatoryresort. Of course we’ll have to get the money from congress to build it, but trust us, if you go it’ll be there when you arrive, and if it isn’t we’ll let you come back…:P And we don’t need to mention that due to budget cuts we could only afford enough fuel for the “inward” half of the trip. NotYetInACamp Apr 25 2017 at 2:46 pm Nice place. Very hot. Easy to miss orbit. Then much hotter. Pamela Apr 25 2017 at 12:22 am I don’t think we need to be footing the bills for any more vacations for Barry, especially off planet tours. silvergreycat Apr 25 2017 at 1:13 am Agreed. He’ll have enough money… http://thehill.com/homenews/news/330337-obama-to-net-400k-for-wall-street-speech-report pyrodice Apr 25 2017 at 12:47 am And upon the flag shall be printed “No refunds” TomZ Apr 25 2017 at 1:57 am TANSTAAFL MasterDiver Apr 25 2017 at 6:54 am Zar Belk! Halley Apr 25 2017 at 1:57 am Democrats already live on Planet Sparkly Unicorn, so if they can be sent anywhere it’s to the woodshed for a good spanking. cmblake6 Apr 25 2017 at 2:19 am “Return trip?” indeed. MasterDiver Apr 25 2017 at 6:56 am All they have to do is build the ship, refine the fuel, produce the supplies…ahhh….., Never Mind…. Zar Belk! Old Codger Apr 25 2017 at 4:50 am My question is, “But is Mars far enough away?” I wouldn’t mind Obozo being the first man to set foot on Pluto . . . . . . .BAREFOOT! Old Codger Apr 25 2017 at 5:03 am Chris, I wanted you to know that I bought Van Stry’s “Days of Future Past part one” and Heseltine’s “The Future Rhymes”. Reading “Past” now. Odd beginning. I’ll let you and the gang know how I like it after I’m done. John D. Egbert Apr 25 2017 at 10:20 am Bought “The Future Rhymes” shortly after the ad first popped. Interesting, fun read — you should enjoy it. Did the same for “Days of Future Past, Part 1;” just haven’t gotten around to it yet, but it’s in the queue. WayneM Apr 25 2017 at 7:52 am Cost/benefit analysis seems to indicate a Mars trip for 0bama would be a prudent investment. Norm Apr 25 2017 at 9:57 am Ten or twelve years ago, maybe. Now … ? WayneM Apr 25 2017 at 10:53 pm He’s still around racebaiting and pushing the globalist prog agenda. Polly Cy Apr 25 2017 at 10:57 am Not sure which Chris I love best: Profound Chris, Provocative Chris, Rabble-rouser Chris, Red meat Chris, Bear-baiter Chris, or this one: Doggone Hilarious Chris. I do know I like being able to share the strip occasionally with some of my older conservative but straight-laced friends and family. Anyway, I particularly liked the way a couple airline names, “American” and “United” were worked in. Maybe they’ll supply the cabin crew for the trip. Love the image of Obama spending a couple years being waited on by flight attendants from the airlines. Pamela Apr 25 2017 at 6:31 pm The Man is multi-faceted, and probably nibbles earlobes really well along with the rest of his attributes.
