No Longer Shooting for the Moon

I’m sure like many of you, my parents always told me to aim for the stars.  I was told to reach for the moon.  Thanks to President Obama and the cancellation of the space program (to be fair, he only cancelled the shuttle program in favor of a better system) we can no longer do that.

And that’s a shame, because I had high hopes of seeing the final frontier.  I suppose I’ll have to be satisfied with exploring Earth now (you could go for a swim in the Marianas Trench).

Great, it’s not like we haven’t already been everywhere and ruined everything (hey, people still discover new species in the rain forests).  I mean, we’re chopping down trees for paper mills, drilling for oil anywhere we can find it (did you see Lucy Lawless was arrested for protesting (well, technically burglary) Shell’s drilling in the Arctic?  There’s no greater opponent than Xena, Warrior Princess…except Chuck Norris), and causing global warming by driving around our gas-guzzling cars.  I’m looking at you, Hummer drivers.

Then again, maybe it’s a good thing we are no longer seeking to expand beyond our planet. After all, we’ve left so much trash here and in orbit, we’re probably only interested in the moon as a junkyard.  (At least it would get rid of the floating garbage barges…?)  But, then, we’d still have a goal.  We’d still have something to hope for.

As it is, our my only goal is to win the lottery, quit my job, and become part of the 1%.  Then I can truly live the American dream (they say the American dream is dead).  I’ll show everyone that we true Americans still fight for the same dream as the border jumping illegal immigrants.  We all want lower taxes, more money, less work, and hotter better maids.

Now, if you’ll excuse me, it’s time for my nap siesta.  Who says we can’t learn anything from our neighbors south of the border?  (Yes, you’re truly a global citizen.)
