LETTERS FROM OUR FANS


Below are two emails that were sitting in my inbox this morning. It appears that our space week activities are stirring the opposition up a bit.

Subject: To the cult leader Bruce Gagnon and his kool-aid drinking followers at GNAW N PIS

Your anti-space rant posted at op-ed news and the activities of the Global Network Against Weapons and Nuclear Power In Space (GNAW N PIS) has not gone unnoticed. The pro-space enthusiasts and members of the National Space Society and the Mars Society and other pro-space organizations, will not take your slanderous accusations and propaganda anymore. We have read your lies about us being corporate toadies and tools for the so-called military industrial complex and we are not ignorant of your neo-Luddite, anti-space crusade to force those of us enlightened enough to see man's future in the stars to wallow in the mud with the rest of the socialist hippy gutter trash that compose the membership of GNAW N PIS. You haven't won recruits to your movement, you have only enemies and a world of hurt. And putting a stop on your steaming pile of bullshit will be a service to mankind. Neo-Luddite like you deserves nothing less than to rot in a third world hellhole of poverty deprived of the benefits of the techology you claim to hate so much.

PS. Since you hate mixing space and capitalism, I suggest you stop making use of the following as they are the product of the evil space capitalists:

Integrated circuitsAdvance weather prediction systemsLight-Emitting Diodes (LEDs) (2005)Infrared Ear Thermometers (1991)DeBakey's Ventricular Assist Device (VAD) (2002)Artificial Limbs (2005)Aircraft Anti-Icing Systems (2007)Highway Safety Grooving (1985)Improved Radial Tires (1976)Chemical Detection (2007)Video Enhancing and Analysis Systems (2001)Land Mine Removal (2000)Fire-Resistant Reinforcement (2006)Firefighting Equipment (1976 onwards)Temper Foam (1976-2005)Enriched Baby Food (1996, 2008)Portable Cordless Vacuums (1981)Freeze Drying Technology (1976, 1994)Water Purification (1995, 2006)Solar Energy (2005)Pollution Remediation (1994, 2006)Better Virtual Software (2005)Structural Analysis (1976-1998)Internet-Connected Ovens (2005)Powdered Lubricants (2005)Improved Mine Safety (1978-2008)Food Safety Systems (1991)

Failure to do so only proves the inherit hypocrisy of GNAW N PIS.

You people are fools.

Expanding into space is mankind's only path.

You are obstacles to progress and luddites.

Kindly step aside and fade into obscurity the world has no need for you, your ideals are meaningless for in the end humanity exists to consume and expand, that is the purpose of life, to grow.
