Chinese Rover Lands on Dark Side of the Moon
If it wasn’t for the Civil Rights Movement, Whitey would have probably built a moonbase by now, landed on Mars and be going to work in flying cars. Instead, the Chinese are on the moon:
“BEIJING — Hours after a space probe from China made humanity’s first landing on the far side of the moon, sending images of its surroundings back to Earth, the spacecraft deployed a rover on Thursday to take still more photographs and scan the surface of terrain never before traversed.
The rover, weighing 300 pounds, rolled off a ramp on the lander at 10:22 p.m. Beijing time, laying deep tracks in the moon’s soft soil, its solar panels spread like wings, according to a photograph released to state media. The rover is now programmed to roam across a barren vista toward a distinct crater. …”
Meanwhile, Elizabeth Warren who is running against Trump in 2020 recently announced that she is donating her Senate salary to HIAS to resettle more refugees in the United States:
“WASHINGTON (JTA) — Days after launching a bid for the Democratic presidential nomination, Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren pledged her salary to HIAS, the Jewish immigration advocacy group, as long as the government is shut down.
“Over 7,000 people in Massachusetts have been sent home or are working without pay during the #TrumpShutdown,” Warren said Tuesday, New Year’s Day, on Twitter. “Until @realDonaldTrump re-opens the government, I’m donating my salary to @HIASrefugees, a nonprofit that helps refugees and makes our country stronger in the process.” …”
The US government is currently in a partial shutdown over a mere $5 billion dollars to build a border wall as another caravan of 15,000 people prepare to leave Honduras. Look at our absurd country which is swimming in trillions of dollars of debt and has lost the ability to send astronauts to the International Space Station. Then look at what China is doing both on earth and the moon.
Is the China the bad guy because “muh democracy” – the Chinese are the happiest people on earth – or do we live under an utterly dysfunctional system governed by a worthless elite?
