Bush, U.S.A.: Masters of the Universe!

News today that President Bush is changing the direction of America's space policy to focus more on national defense. According to the Post article, his plan "asserts a right to deny access to space to anyone 'hostile to U.S. interests.'"

Whose flag is this, bitch?

So we own space now. Huzzah! I think this change in policy is long overdue. Fuck the cooperative spirit of the
International Space Station. Fuck it in the ear! And fuck these high-fallutin notions of "exploration" and "science." You heard the president, all you snot-nosed nerds out there. And Lance Bass, if you think your homo ass still has a shot at a space flight, think again, boy. We don't need your kind in space -- access denied!

The U.S. absolutely has the right to cut space of from anyone we deem hostile to us. Why? Because SHUT THE HELL UP, that's why! That's OUR empty expanse up there. Savvy? And I see absolutely no downside to this. In fact, let's take it a step further. Let's deny North Korea access to oxygen. Don't let us catch you North Koreans breathing down there, or else we're talking sanctions, or at least a sternly worded statement with your name on it, punks! I also think we should deny access to the ocean -- you know, just because. Space may be the final frontier for war and crap, but it's the first frontier for yet another bold new stroke of Bush administration policy. And I welcome it.
