It’s a pretty cool time to be alive when a private citizen can hitch a ride to space on a giant penis. Seriously!
On a serious note: Congrats to Jeff Bezos and crew of the #BlueOrigin. Well done.

Forget about what you think of Bezos. This is a good day for space flight. We need competition, private investment, and business models that make it sustainable. The breakthroughs private space entrepreneurs are making will benefit everyone. https://t.co/VsWaDSNpca

And when something as interesting as this happens, you know you can count on a liberal to crap all over it. Take it away, Massachusetts progressive Democrat and Assistant U.S. House Speaker Katherine Clark:
You don’t have to be a rocket scientist to know it’s time for billionaires to pay their fair share. https://t.co/fozG8FVVvh
— Katherine Clark (@RepKClark) July 20, 2021
Congratulations, Katherine, on being as insufferable as Robert Reich:
No one needs Bezos to launch rockets into outer space. We need him to pay his fair share of taxes so people can thrive here on Earth.

You definitely don’t need to be a rocket scientist to know that Democrats are literally incapable of turning it off for one damn second.

You know, it’s okay to celebrate human achievements without imposing the stink of government on it ten seconds after it happens. https://t.co/XmCrsEPWYp

Oh. Here we f’n go. Can’t we just appreciate something amazing for a minute?!?

We can. The Left can’t.

“Look kids… stop it with your crazy dreams about space. We have have social justice to do here on earth. Exploring is only ok when the government does it.”
Hating people that reach for the stars is a hell of way to look at life.

It shouldn’t be this difficult.

Because our governments are incapable of investing in future-looking science, it falls on rich people to reignite the great human space race for the 21st century. Don't try to stifle human achievement.
