  1. We were supposed to be taking commercial tourist flights to the moon by now, according to the stuff they were dishing out back in the 50’s and 60’s. Probably could have, too, if we had had the guts to spend the money on Science instead of Welfare.

    Rest in peace, brave pioneer.

    Rest in peace.

    * Hand salute *

  2. David Fagg, opportunist and leftist agitator, died at the age of 18 when beaten to a pulp by a crowd of one while wielding a megaphone and speaking against the 2nd Amendment. Services will be held tomorrow for anyone that gives a shit about this loser, stick armed, piece of shit.

  3. Those were some gutsy men. It’ll be a while before we see the likes of men like him again given the current crop of sissy’s we have now days.

  4. Alan Bean, being an 8th cousin on my maternal grandmothers side of the family, RIP and we salute you. To bad the space program was eliminated.

  5. 12 men walked on the moon but they are difficult to name because Neil Armstrong did it first.

  6. Those were the days! When NASA was an organization focused on the exploration of space. Now days it concern’s itself with kissing mooooslim ass.


  7. @ Mr Pinko – I don’t go on ANY long journey on our ship without TUNA and lots of it.

    It is a great story.

    @ organ grinder- while standards may have changed, there are still many willing to take the risk. Some of theose sissy’s are on a battle field right now.

    Bean’s last mission was Skylab3.

    Gods’ speed that explorer.
