Did you really think the Obama Administration cared about national defense.  They are a cartoon administration, literally!

“Further, DARPA paid nearly $100,000 for a strategy planning workshop on the 100 Year Starship project last year included an interesting discussion involving the Klingons, a fictional alien species who were villains and then later allies of humanity in the Star Trek series. The session entitled “Did Jesus die for Klingons too?” featured philosophy professor Christian Weidemann of Germany’s Ruhr-University Bochum who pondered the theological conflict to Christianity if intelligent life was found on other planets.”

Barack, San Fran Nan and Harry believe TV is for real!  Sick people—with our money.

DoD Spends $100,000 Studying Whether Jesus Died for Klingons

by Jaci Greggs, Breitbart,  12/5/12

Senator Tom Coburn’s (R-OK) latest report on spending by the Department of Defense shows, among other things, defense spending used for lecture series involving fictional alien species.

“Did Jesus Die for Klingons too?” was just one session at a recent workshop funded by the Defense Advances Research Projects Agency:

Further, DARPA paid nearly $100,000 for a strategy planning workshop on the 100 Year Starship project last year included an interesting discussion involving the Klingons, a fictional alien species who were villains and then later allies of humanity in the Star Trek series. The session entitled “Did Jesus die for Klingons too?” featured philosophy professor Christian Weidemann of Germany’s Ruhr-University Bochum who pondered the theological conflict to Christianity if intelligent life was found on other planets.

At another DoD-funded gathering, the brainstorming sessions covered topics such as how to make deep space travel most efficient, how scientists would go about creating a “warp bubble,” and whether or not humans would need to wear clothing during space travel. This event even featured actors from the famous “Star Trek” TV series as special guests.

This was in conjunction with the 100 Year Starship project, the goal of which is to “foster a rebirth of a sense of wonder” to “make interstellar space travel practicable and feasible.” So far, the 100 Year Project has consumed more than $1 million.

One of the few parts of the U.S. government that doesn’t suck. Unlike most other branches and services in the government, the Department of Defense doesn’t bitch about politics and instead concentrates on kicking ass. We owe to them the awesomeness that is the Army and Marine Corps.
