Muslims' self-esteem hit hard by shutdown
Of NASA's 18,000 employees, 17,500 were deemed non-essential and were furloughed during the shutdown. The remaining 500 work on the Space Station project keeping astronauts alive.....I'd say that was essential.
What did the rest do, work on Obama's Muslim Outreach Program to make Muslims feel good about their entirely imaginary historical contributions to math, science, medicine, literature, the arts, philosophy, technology, architecture, engineering, etc.? Muslims' self-esteem must be suffering now that no NASA personnel are available to lie to them about their usefulness to the world.
I think we can do without those 17,000 people on the payroll. In the embarrassing absence of a flight program, NASA has but three jobs to do in my opinion, 500 for keeping people alive on the ISS, 75 for running the Space Camp in Huntsville, and like 6 or 7 for keeping an eye out for aliens.....so that's 582 people that are doing anything worthwhile over at NASA these days.
