China has become the first nation to land a spacecraft on the dark side of the moon.

The lander has placed a moon rover on the surface and has already broadcast the first images of the dark side of the moon, from the ground. The Chinese launched a satellite earlier in the year so the lander could send signals back to the earth.

This is the second craft the Chinese have landed on the moon and they have plans to land another craft soon, which will return samples to the earth. Also, the Chinese plan to use either this lander or the next one scheduled to land on the moon later this year, to search the further reaches of outer space, because the far side of the moon has less electronic "noise" that interferes with clear reception.

America is too busy fighting enemies we created to go to the moon again. We are going the other direction instead, to Hell in a handbasket.

Dare we say China is much more in touch with life than our politicians as well as the people of the United States? I hate to say this, but I somehow think that Trump mirrors the general population.

Burl, it's about time a US prez "mirrors the general population!" EVERY predecessor has mirrored the self interest of the power elite.


According to opinion polls:


Americans don't like our immigration policy. Neither do I nor Trump!

Americans don't like our "free" trade policies. Neither do I nor Trump!

Americans want us to stop creating enemies to feed our war fund. So do I and Trump! I applaud his pulling out of Syria and declaring it's time to focus on America's needs. AMEN!!


Trump is not a politician, which we should all appreciate! He's not a member of the corpocracy's evil power elite, about which I am just about finished writing what I swear will be, at my age, my last Damn book!

Imagine if instead of going to iraq and Afghanistan we had gone to the moon, mars, built a bigger space station. Yet . here we are, getting ready to shut down the space station. Trump supporters want to take us back to living in caves.

My simple but incredibly important addition to this topic is that climate change is the enemy of Homo sapiens, brought upon us by our very own damn selves. My sequel to that is that we should for once and presumably for all behave as that species, that single species on that single most valuable planet called Earth? And if all the countries recognized or should I say accepted the truth of what we see on a daily basis if not hourly basis, we should damn well recognize that this is our single most critical enemy come upon by ourselves. Not intentionally, for the most part because there are people pushing for money over sanity humans, and the planet, which I well realize , due to ignorance. But shouldn't this be the major cause for all humans to get together and put it as our number one priority, forgetting about cost in any form of freaking economics, other than perhaps Natural Capitalism or a A Hydrogen Economy? I'm sure there other related and cleary articulated ideas. A Sacred Economy comes to mind as does Energy for Survial.

Forget about cost? OMG! That'll never fly! Have you been keeping up with the budget wrangling? They've trotted out all the usual regrets and reasons why we must do this and not that. It's kabuki theater cleverly designed by the uber-capitalists to control and direct government spending to produce debt slavery and exponentially growing "national debt".

TRUTH: In a fiat money system government spending is not a zero-sum game. The source of government spending is unlimited, and taxes do not pay for anything. "We" can afford whatever the price of humanity's survival is. "National debt" is a convenient fiction.

So, why did China need to land a spacecraft on a classic album in the first place?

Next thing ya know, Pompeo will want to bomb Led Zepplin IV, Brain Salad Surgery, or Highway to Hell.

Because they are so unimaginative that they can't think of better things to do with the money. Kind of like us.

The "dark side" of the moon is a misnomer and is not dark at all. In fact it is actually the "far side" as distinct from the "near side" that we see from earth. Anyway congratulations to the Chinese for landing there and may their potato crops be bountiful.

Republicans/Reagan Democrats never imagined the unpatriotic, immoral, unethical Ronald Reagan administration misguided domestic/foreign policies would lay the foundation to enable the PRC/CCP to now threaten the US economic/military interests and Taiwan. Western countries sold the rope to China that will hang them in exchange for short-term profits.

The US spent billions of $'s supporting Reagan "Freedom Fighter's" now costing the country trillions of $'s and scores of US soldiers killed,maimed and committing suicide in the farce War of Terror. Monies better spent on infrastructure, space exploration, social welfare than "Terrorizing" the world.

China has lifted tens-of-millions out of poverty while the US has enslaved billions to the Rothschild/Rockefeller Federal Reserve $. China's BRI will bring economic opportunity to those it reaches and once in place will deny the US to its exports and markets.

Small-greedy minds have been deciding America's policies far too long and will be the country's downfall, while China's rise will be complete in another couple of decades; if humanity has that long.
