Yes, and little was learned from sending animals into space. One of the Russian scientists said a few years ago that he regretted sending the dog into space. The poor thing died within a few hours from overheating. For what? Nothing.


THey retrieved the capsule with the monkey still alive. What is the problem?

nohone, please note it was uncommented on when the hate was directed at bush, but as soon as you mention the messiah, obama, that you get dumped on.

rfirth, why is comparing bush to a monkey OK and not OK to criticize o'bama? is it because he is white and o'bama is only half white? both of them are illegal immigrants anyway, at least from my point of view. my family is in part native american and we never gave you permission to be here. like yours, our immigration system and border control stank & we gave you amnesty. look how that worked out for us.

more on topic, i did not hear any mention of prez. mymoody imadinnerjacket being missing long enough to have been up in space. (he's white, so it's OK to dis him, innit?)

raze, PETA have been trying to find a way to stealthily dispose of the 98% of pets they say they are going to rehome, and then actually kill them in the van as they pull away from the donative family that thinks the pet circumstance prevents them from keeping will find a new loving family. they have been dumping the carcasses in skips behind stores w/o permission, but it's inconvenient when they get caught. space is a great disposal location if they can get the cost down.


Wow! :omg: Take a chill pill, I was joking. :rolleyes:

They claim they did. The Russians claimed that the dog they sent into space was euthanized before oxygen ran out several days later. The truth is that the dog died from overheating within hours. Iran isn't likely to report failure if they can help it.

If they were successful? Good for them. I didn't say there was necessarily a problem.

Wait, so someone compares Bush to a monkey, I turn the tables and say if we were to compare Obama to a monkey that would be racist, I am the one showing "hate?" How truly pathetic. While the last line I wrote was a joke - how Obama is worshipped and don't you dare say anything negative about him - what you wrote shows how true it really is. Attack anyone who does not "goose step" with the Democrat party line, while repeating exactly what is written/said about anyone who sits on the other side of the isle towards a Democrat, and you are a racist hater.

I know how it works. Try to shut down free speech when I use the very words (or in this case, a comment on a picture) that people speak/write about one person, and turn it towards another by calling everything that does not glorify Obama racist. Problem is, I don't play that game. So whine and claim I am racist all you want. It shows even more how intolerant you really are.

You guys. It's simple. Be reasonable. I'm on your side, but you're too blind to see that. This is just a special case. I'm not saying you can't criticize Obama. Go ahead. I'm not going to call you racist for criticizing Obama. Nobody is. Stop saying people call Republicans racist solely because they are criticizing Obama. It's not true and you're wasting your time. Seriously. Chill out. I never called you racist. I have a sense of humor. I can laugh at a good Obama joke.

Comparing Bush to a monkey isn't racist. But comparing Obama to a monkey is. Why? Think about it. Why is it funny to call Bush a monkey? Because that picture is funny, and some people think he's stupid. I'm not saying I agree with it. But it doesn't go any deeper than that. Now, why is it racist to call Obama a monkey? I'm not going to spell it out to you. Perhaps you should look up the term "porch monkey". Calling any person of African descent a monkey is incredibly racist. It has a different connotation. That's why.

It's like doing blackface. You just don't do it. And it really has nothing to do with Obama or his affiliation with the Democratic party.

Congrats on injecting Obama hate into an innocent thread.

I think you know why calling Obama a monkey is racist, and that calling ANYONE Hitler is ignorant and wrong.


if you post images of Bush as monkey then posting Images of Obama as a monkey is fair game. You don't get to post something offensive and then hide behind race.

Hey, that is racist. Oh, wait, it is Bush. It is OK if we compare him to Hitler, a monkey, or whatever you wish, as long as you don't say anything bad about the most glorious Obama, PBUH.


It's not racist to compare Bush to a monkey - it may be elitist, it may be offensive but it's not racist, as it is based on his intelligence and not his racial heritage. Whereas saying "Peace Be Upon Him" is racist, because the accusation that Obama is a Muslim is based upon his racial heritage.

Getting back on topic, it's interesting that Iran and North Korea have both advanced their space programmes at a similar pace. That indicates assistant from an existing player in the field, like Russia or China. Then again, why should South Korea's satellite launch be acceptable yet North Korea and Iran's be unacceptable? Neither have shown any signs of aggression, unlike the US which has toppled government after government.

except arming insurrgents. and you least of all don't get to call for us to get "back on topic" when you're the one who derailed the topic to begin with with your racist bull crap. And it was racist to show Bush being compared to a monkey believing the race of your 'your guy' would some how make him immune to similiar depictions. Us republicans endured eight years of these insults comparing him to a monkey and to hitler. It's your guys turn in the hot seat and we won't allow him to get cover from his race. 'Do unto others'; pay back is a bitch.
