The Final Landing of the USS Enterprise

USS enterprise landingThe experience of watching the space shuttle Enterprise circle New York City on its way to JFK Airport can be described in many different ways.  One of the words viewers most frequently used about the sight was “bittersweet”.  As Enterprise piggybacked its way on a 747 to its final landing, Americans turned out in large numbers to view the flight. The predominant mood was nostalgia.

Originally named the Constitution, the first space shuttle was re-named Enterprise, thanks largely to a huge write in campaign by fans of the enormously popular sci-fi TV show Star Trek. Gene Roddenberry’s forward thinking, imaginative story lines and precedent-setting casting inspired many to dream of an expansive, high-tech future where virtually anything was possible.  Even flights around the galaxy, seeking out new life and new civilizations.

How ironic that the final flight of the Enterprise would take place when a people, so capable of great achievement, have no concrete plans to continue manned journeys into the final frontier.

The situation is very reminiscent of Stark Trek episodes, where Captain Kirk, Mister Spock and Doctor McCoy encounter civilizations enjoying the advantages and pleasures of a high-tech world left behind by their extremely knowledgeable, highly advanced ancestors.  The problem was, their ancestors had evolved to such a level that the equipment they left behind took so long to break down that anybody with the knowledge to design, build or even fix the machines had long since passed.  Fortunately for those lost civilizations, the brave crew of the USS Enterprise was there to come to the rescue.  One might venture to guess that had the crew of the USS Enterprise been around to bail them out, civilizations in earth’s own history might have been saved.  Had the knowledge, skill, ambition and drive of those who built civilizations in Greece, Persia, Egypt and Rome not been allowed to erode, the Dark Ages might never have happened.  But, the USS Enterprise was not there to save them.

The USS Enterprise.  Ponder that for a moment.  That’s not much different from U.S. free enterprise, is it?

America should take note.  With “progressives” evidently intent on destroying America’s free enterprise system and culture; replacing them with big government crony-socialism awash in a culture of corruption, America’s civilization teeters on the brink of erosion, decline and eventual collapse.  Oh sure, people who call themselves Americans will continue to live on the same piece of land.  Even the name of the country will probably remain intact.  But what makes America exceptional will be lost.  How much longer can America’s economy and culture withstand the full bore onslaught of big government power grabs, unaffordable debt and deficit spending, cultural over-reach, intentional misinformation, false accusations and outright lies being unrelentingly foisted upon them, with malice of forethought, by the institutionalized “progressive” left?

These anti-America forces, funded by the likes of George Soros and his ilk, enjoy “intellectual cover” from aging counter-culture hippie-freak college professors.  The beat-down muscle and numbers needed to enforce their agenda are found in the big unions.  The big Hollywood movie message machine, along with the “mainstream news” media work overtime to indoctrinate the unsuspecting masses, while symbolic, useful pawns like occupy Wall Street are fully and openly embraced by the highest ranking members of the “progressive” Democratic Party.

The institutionalized “progressive” left is relentless, determined, well funded, organized and extremely aggressive.  Their views of America are not fondly nostalgic.  Some may have even cheered the final flight of the Enterprise with the same glee that 9/11 was celebrated by Islamo-fascists in the Middle East.  And for reasons that are not dissimilar.  Some may have toasted the final flight of the Enterprise as an enduring, meaningful symbol of the decline of American civilization. Their goal is to bring about, by whatever means necessary, an end to what President Abraham Lincoln called “the last best hope for man on earth”.

And the crew of the USS Enterprise isn’t here to bail America out.

    You’re a loony, paranoid idiot, and this is as bad as op-ed writing gets. Are you aware that just SAYING STUFF doesn’t make it so? You have to actually BACK UP what you’re saying for it to be worth anything? Your claim is that progressives want to bring about the last best hope for man on earth…Why? Where’s this coming from? How are they going to do that? And why would they? Why would they toast the final flight of the Enterprise?

    You can’t just attribute shit to people you don’t like. I mean, you can, but it’s idiotic writing and really rather shitty. Observe:

    Michael Fell may be a child molester.

    How’s that feel?

    Methinks thou doth protest too much.

    I’m not concerned with your false insinuation that I’m a child molester. I’m not one. I know that. People who know me know that. God knows that.

    You, however, must resort to ad hominem attacks and emotional rants in protest. Why? If what was said in the article isn’t true, why protest? Could it be . . . guilty conscience?

    You’re going to continue screaming bloody murder because you know what was said is true, and the last thing you want if for people to know the truth. The truth is your enemy and you’ll keep on fighting the truth. To that end, you will be deterred by nothing.

    Intentional misinformation, false accusations and outright lies from the left are 100% expected and totally predictable.

    Seriously, how dumb are you? My point had nothing to do with you being a child molester and everything to do with how reckless and empty-headed it is to just say stuff without any evidence of it. Do you really not comprehend that?

    >>You, however, must resort to ad hominem attacks and emotional rants in protest. Why? If what was said in the article isn’t true, why protest? Could it be . . . guilty conscience?

    Huh? That is absolutely the worst logic I’ve ever heard. You make up a bunch of speculations off the top of your head and don’t back it up with anything, and when someone calls you out on what awful journalism that is, you say “Well, since you’re protesting, it must be true”?? Honestly, seriously, that’s just about the most boneheaded thing I’ve ever seen on these pages, and WOW, is that saying something.

    But okay, I’ll answer: Why protest? BECAUSE IT’S WRONG. Happy now?

    By your logic, the fact that you denied being a child molester just now means you must be a child molester.

    Do you see what’s wrong with your logic yet?

    >>You’re going to continue screaming bloody murder because you know what was said is true, and the last thing you want if for people to know the truth. The truth is your enemy and you’ll keep on fighting the truth. To that end, you will be deterred by nothing.

    You’re an idiot. No one is “screaming bloody murder.” I’m telling you that speculating on shit without any evidence of it is crappy journalism. “Liberals probably cheered on the last flight of the Enterprise because they’re evil un-Americans” is a big pile of shit.

    You have zero cred. It’s that simple. The fact that this website allows such stupid garbage to be posted speaks worlds about how awful it is. Basically, no one here gives a shit about credibility or evidence or logic or anything other than “I hate liberals, I hate Obama.” That you all think you’re writers, that you all think you’re good at this, that you all think you have talent and integrity and thoughts worth sharing aloud is just fucking sad.

    You really should tell your script writers at Media Matters that they’re in desperate need of fresh material.

    I’m sorry it’s neither fresh nor newsworthy that you’re a fucking idiot, but it’s hardly my fault either.
