Speaking of contrasts, compare the reaction when evidence revealed the Obama administration intentional made life difficult for citizens during the government shutdown.

The point here is not to excuse Christie or his administration, only to point out the disgusting hypocrisy of the press and the Democrats. It is bad when a Republican does it, but when a Democrat does it who cares?

Update: And then there’s this: “In less than 24 hours, the three networks have devoted 17 times more coverage to a traffic scandal involving Chris Christie than they’ve allowed in the last six months to Barack Obama’s Internal Revenue Service controversy.”

Pioneer cover

From the press release: From the moment he is handed a possibility of making the first alien contact, Saunders Maxwell decides he will do it, even if doing so takes him through hell and back.

 
Unfortunately, that is exactly where that journey takes him.

The vision that Zimmerman paints of vibrant human colonies on the Moon, Mars, the asteroids, and beyond, indomitably fighting the harsh lifeless environment of space to build new societies, captures perfectly the emerging space race we see today.

He also captures in Pioneer the heart of the human spirit, willing to push forward no matter the odds, no matter the cost. It is that spirit that will make the exploration of the heavens possible, forever, into the never-ending future.

    The other contrast is how disgusted people on the right are while Democrats cheer on Obama.

    This story will have a sudden but silent death as soon as the media sees Democrat fingerprints on some emails.

    Christie’s apology press conference lasted almost as long as the lane closures. He should have ended it with “At this point in time, What difference does it make?” I wonder if the “journalists” would have suddenly become un-interested in the story if he had.
