The DUmmies really, really wanted to be astronauts

Bozo Bezos is far past his 15 minutes


All hat and not only no cattle, no orbit in space.
Like claiming he had sex after his first maturbation.
Jeffrey Jerk hardly merits a presser


"I never liked space anyway! Who needs it? Not me!"

I wondered why they were so angry about rich people taking what amounts to very high plane rides for a few minutes, then it occurred to me that about 3/4 of DUmmies are at least 70 and were adults when space exploration was at the forefront of the culture.
I think that's the explanation: they wanted to be astronauts. Now that they're home-bound, infirm losers, it chaps them that someone can pull together enough funds to get on a special airplane and fly really high.

As I have said before, however, another issue is that only tax dollars are permitted in space:

4. Branson is way cooler than Bezos!

Better uniforms, too.

Instead of billionaires, I wish it were united world governments propelling us to space, but I'll take what I can get.



Consider also that Bezos and Branson have done pretty much the exact opposite of DUmmy canon. Rather than stay home, cash government checks, and whine on the internet, these two dudes took their own dough and not only left home, but went as far away as is practical. Suck it, DUmmies.
I am not a fan of Donald Trump, but I trust his advisors to steer this country in a more prosperous direction than the Dem monkeys pulling Biden's strings. Is that clear enough?

If you needed more evidence that the left's political views are their religion, look no further.

Okay, pseudo-religion.

They are bent all out of shape because they have convinced themselves that someone raking in billions annually pays absolutely no taxes, hence the reason said billionaire needs to die... or something.
The level of stupid among them is really astounding. The feed off each other in a self-induced chain-reaction of hate combined with self-loathing

my wife is always commenting about this... "why is it that everything men design is shaped like a *ick?"
even when I arranged the stone barriers on the side of the house, the first thing she said was "it looks like a *ick".
I tell her she is the one who is obsessed, not the men. 
she doesn't even bother hitting me anymore

Yes, which just goes to show you how stupid Bezos truly is if he thinks he can buy their love.

Wrong on both counts, Jeffrey.

the obvious answer is because we can. 

The practical answer in space flight is aerodynamics, but Musk did a better job at making his Falcon Heavy look less dicklike while adhering to aerodynamic design basics...

Oh, don't be silly.

Of course DUmp Monkies have convictions. It's what prevents most of them from owning firearms.

The only way a DUmbass will get into space will be chemically induced by illegal substances.

It's interesting watching the DUmmies who claim to be super-educated stating that these flights serve no scientific purpose.  MineralMan and Magistrate have been leading the charge.  Apparently neither of these pompous windbags understand that pushing on engineering boundaries is how technology grows.  They also don't appear to understand how much money is spent on R&D (both publicly and privately) that is determined to be unfeasible, but the results of these endeavors are often utilized in other research.  DUmmies discussing any complex system (engineering, economic, political, etc.) is both hilarious and sad.  Hilarious to watch them try to figure out things that are way beyond their intellectual capacity, but sad that, when one of them comes up with the least stupid solution, the others will readily agree regardless of how ignorant they are of the subject.

Because the heavens were meant to be penetrated.

That's why the engines are called thrusters.

Agreed. For people who claim to be 'progressive', they're not very... progressive?
