So while we're hitching rides with the rights -- China is flying high by itself is gonna do its own space station just by it's lonesome.
To the former astronaut -- sort of the last man to walk on the moon on what looks like I got its Jeanne a whole new low for us -- and -- it's.
I don't think -- -- idiotic you know -- feelings.
This country of ours pay dearly and I'm not just -- -- In dollar -- talk with the lives of some good man.
To -- to gain a leadership.
In space over the years abuse of technological leader of the world.
And I don't like what's gone on have all because it's not just what we're not doing their day -- what our plan is to not do and is saying.
In a future event planners won't know on Lou is there's been said we are not going to be a leader -- -- back through Mormon there's been some other wars that have been said.
Behind closed doors about the fact that we were gonna hang time and we're not -- -- anybody anywhere in the future of space or.
In the future and development of technology.
You know it's amazing that you're just as you predicted -- -- when I still view Minnesota fortieth anniversary of your -- walk on the moon.
How much the world has reacted to that how quickly the world has reacted to that -- usaid as the one in on states anymore.
-- we sure do so China's firing up.
Japan is firing on India's -- out I think we're one step away from Luxembourg firing up what the heck is going on here.
Well I don't know but generally the the Asian mentality China Japan.
India if you wanna include them in admitted there are patient.
They know what they're gonna do they know were they want to go they know how long it's gonna take him to get there.
And and you know what we don't do today is going to be done by someone else tomorrow on if you look -- read between the lines -- -- doing.
They're gonna eventually build it -- that twenty -- Orbiting space station about the time that BI SS is -- come back to earth give -- take around corny corny.
-- -- -- it has the space station to which were looking rides right now the -- will be.
Likely Don and out of orbit and somewhere in the Indian saved by that but but but you're you're saying that that that is the danger -- that China.
Is is just gonna take full advantage of that.
Well and don't kid yourself that plan although I don't know that.
It's been written dollar we've seen it but that plan includes gore -- and -- I think you'll see.
Along with them developing that manned space station nice I think you'll see him land unmanned vehicles.
On the -- much as we did and I as a precursor.
-- human -- going it's a natural evolution.
-- of that kind of plan are they behind where where are they behind this today yes what they're doing today we did they're 2030 years ago.
But it's what we're not doing in a future in the inertia when you do nothing.
It's pretty heavy to get back in a game in this this it scares me quite frankly it hurts.
It -- personally.
Technology -- a lot of folks is if they're gonna go back to the moon.
-- did that forty years ago been there done that conquered that let them go ahead and try to repeat that.
What are we worried about.
Columbus discovered America why go back we've been there done that you know discovery.
Is is and -- -- curiosity is the essence of human existence.
We will go human beings on this planet will go in and fortunately I think over the long hall it's going to be human beings on this planet.
That you not just one nation but in -- near term in the near future.
The Chinese see a door and and had doors partially open and and they're gonna walk through it and I.
What I see happening in this country today -- scares me to death.
I won't be around.
But we are becoming a second rate nation and across the board from space to were ever.
I got nine grandkids.
Those -- the ones that I am concerned about.
Are you concerned about these.
Everything else invasions of late that.
But that's -- our government seems to be concentrating its -- some say.
You know that's -- it should be we live in a dangerous world others say it's overstepping its of others argue that it's we're concentrating these great vast technologies to do bad things.
-- -- -- -- -- -- Where we could spend a lot of time -- -- when you relinquish your personal liberty your personal freedom.
You you give up almost every senator as I spent a lot of time in the old Soviet Union -- me.
Seventies during the Apollo thirty days I think I look I watch people I've talked to people who were willing to talk in -- -- Oklahoma my grandparents and Czechoslovakia at the time.
They didn't even have a dream they could even concede -- they asked permission that.
Moved from house to house for buying new Carter wait two years that they get married that they had no personal freedom to do.
Anything they they'd even have an opportunity.
And that's where you're headed if you want to read the tea leaves all this.
I -- Obama cares gonna tell everybody in the world every time might take a baby Jesper what I do with it and -- -- -- this.
They don't obviously I'm very very concerned I will fight and fight to the day -- -- For my personal freedom and I don't believe that I'm going to be joined by millions and millions of Americans yes we are under attack with.
