Mars Challenge

The Mars Challenge


Occidental Dissent is responding to the Mars challenge.

This thread will be updated as we search for diversity cuts that could otherwise be allocated toward building a spaceship to send White people to Mars.

Neil Armstrong says that only $10 billion dollars has been invested in the Constellation space program over the past five years.

How much taxpayer money has been squandered on shit like Historically Black Colleges and Universities, TANF welfare, and EBT cards for African-Americans? We already know from our preliminary investigations into this topic that it utterly dwarfs NASA Constellation spending.

Here we go:

(1) California’s 2009 spending on the criminal justice system for Hispanics and African-Americans$22.8 billion dollars.

(2) Virginia’s 2009 spending on EBT cards for African-Americans$487.5 million dollars.

(3) Virginia’s 2008 spending on TANF welfare for African-Americans$1 billion dollars.

(4) Virginia’s 2009 spending on corrections facilities for African-Americans$652.7 million dollars.

(5) Alabama’s 2009 spending on EBT cards for African-Americans$53.6 million dollars.

You know, we could easily stop right here, having found over $25 billion dollars in three states, over a one year period, on a handful of programs for Hispanics and African-Americans.

SBPDL is going to get a real kick out of this. These numbers come from the Department of Education website whose motto is “Strengthening Education for All (Non-White) Americans.”

(6) Minority Science and Engineering Improvement – $8.6 million dollars in 2008, $8.6 million dollars in 2009, $9 million dollars in 2010.

(7) Strengthening Historically Black Colleges and Universities – $323 million dollars in 2008, $323 million dollars in 2009, $250 million dollars in 2010.

(8) Strengthening Historically Black Graduate Institutions – $56.9 million in 2008, $58.5 million in 2009, $61.4 million in 2010.

(9) Strengthening Predominantly Black Institutions – $15 million in 2008, $15 million in 2009.

(10) Master’s Degree Programs at HBCUs and PBIs – $11.5 million in 2009, $11.5 million in 2010.

(11) Strengthening Asian American and Native American Pacific Islander-serving Institutions – $5 million in 2008, $7.5 million in 2009, $2.6 million in 2010.

(12) Strengthening Native American-serving nontribal institutions – $5 million in 2008, $5 million in 2009, $2.6 million in 2010.

(13) Strengthening Alaska Native and Native Hawaiian-serving Institutions – $26.6 million in 2008, $26.6 million in 2009, $12.2 million in 2010.

(14) Strengthening Tribally Controlled Colleges and Universities and Institutions: $131.3 in 2008, 133.2 million in 2009, $108.3 million in 2010.

(15) Developing Hispanic-serving Institutions – $93.3 million in 2008, $93.3 million in 2009, $97.9 million in 2010.

The Developing Hispanic-serving Institutions program funds competitive grants to expand and enhance the academic quality, institutional management, fiscal stability, and self-sufficiency of colleges and universities that enroll large percentages of Hispanic students.

(16) Developing HSI STEM and Articulation programs (mandatory) – $100 million in 2008, $100 million in 2009.

The HSI STEM and Articulation Program was designed to increase the number of Hispanic and other low income students earning degrees in fields of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) and to develop model transfer and articulation agreements between the 2-year and 4-year HSIs in such fields. Mandatory funding was provided only for fiscal years 2008 and 2009 for this program.

(17) Promoting Postbaccalaureate Opportunities
for Hispanic Americans (mandatory)
– $11.52 million in 2009, $11.52 million in 2010.

The Promoting Postbaccalaureate Opportunities for Hispanic Americans program provides mandatory funding to eligible HSIs that offer a postbaccalaureate certificate or postbaccalaureate degree-granting program. The program is designed to help Hispanic Americans gain entry into and succeed in graduate study, a level of education in which they are underrepresented. Mandatory funding is provided for 5 years beginning in fiscal year 2009.

(18) Thurgood Marshall Legal Education Opportunity Scholarships – $2.9 million in 2008, $3.0 million in 2009, $3.0 million in 2010.

Thurgood Marshall Legal Educational Opportunity program provides low-income, minority, or disadvantaged secondary school and college students with the information, preparation, and financial assistance needed to gain access to and complete law school study and admission to law practice. The 2010 request would provide support, including financial assistance, to over 160 Thurgood Marshall Fellows and allow over 1,000 participants to attend mid-year seminars and other educational activities.

(19) Graduate Assistance in Areas
of National Need (GAANN) Scholarships
– $29.5 million in 2008, $31 million in 2009, $31 million in 2010.

GAANN provides fellowships, through competitive grants to postsecondary institutions, to graduate students with superior ability and high financial need studying in areas of national need. Participating graduate schools must provide assurances that they will seek talented students from traditionally underrepresented backgrounds. The 2010 request would provide support for 700 fellowships.

(20) Underground Railroad Program – $1.9 in 2008, $1.9 in 2009, $1.9 million in 2010.

This program provides discretionary grants to one or more non-profit educational organizations that house, display, interpret, and communicate information regarding artifacts and other materials relating to the history of the Underground Railroad, including the lessons to be drawn from such history. The 2010 request would support 2 new grants.

How much federal money do you suppose the Obama administration requested Congress to set aside to be specifically allocated for “strengthening European-American institutions” or “European-American scholarships” or teaching White students about their own history?

Yeah, that’s right: IT WAS ZERO. In Black Run America, there are no European-American institutions or scholarship programs funded by the federal government.

Who do you suppose paid for all these lucrative racial set asides for privileged resentment groups? White taxpayers.

We had to give up going to Mars to waste even more taxpayer dollars on EBT cards for African-Americans and “Strengthening Historically Black Colleges and Universities.”

Update: Another layer of hilarity can be seen in the programs FY 2010 programs the Obama administration recommended to be cut.

These include “Character Education” (which teaches students about the value of citizenship and civic virtue) and $245 million on “Safe and Drug-Free Schools and Communities State Grants” (which is supposed to create and maintain drug-free, safe, and orderly environments for learning in and around schools).

Why the hell would anyone need NASA space shuttles or character education in the Obamanation? No one is judged by “the content of their character” these days. We can spend more money on Section 8 housing vouchers, “Strengthening Black Institutions,” and EBT cards for African-Americans.

Citizenship is worthless in this society anyway when the Obama administrations wants to give illegal aliens in-state tuition under the DREAM Act.

Update II: I’ve been probing the Obama administration FY 2012 budget and have already found some interesting stuff.

From the National Science Foundation:

Broadens Participation of Those Studying Science and Technology.

Science and technology skills are increasingly critical to getting high wage jobs. To broaden access to science and technology educational opportunities, the Administration proposes $20 million for an overarching, comprehensive science and technology workforce program to engage undergraduates from historically unrepresented groups in these fields, including students at Hispanic-serving institutions. In addition, this effort will support initiatives to better retain these students through their entry into the high-tech workforce.

The Obama administration wants to spend $20 million dollars on “a comprehensive science and technology workforce program” to find African-American and Hispanic scientists and to ease their entry “into the high-tech workforce.”

In Detroit, 47 percent of the population is illiterate and 21.7 percent of students graduate from high school. The President of the Detroit School Board is illiterate. The Mayor of Detroit will give police officers a free house and $150,000 in renovation money to live there.

Because of Hispanics, California has the worst educated workforce in America and 44.2 percent of students graduate from high school in Los Angeles.

From the Justice Department:

The Budget also proposes an increase for the Community
Relations Service to fight hate crimes.

We have to throw away more money to fight “hate crimes.” The overwhelming majority of “hate crimes” are stupid property crimes like painting a swastika on a wall or something silly like that.

From the Department of Education:

A new $40 million “competitive grant” to expand teacher education programs at “minority serving institutions” in order to prepare “a diverse teaching workforce.

  1. Going to Mars? What is actually going on is that an idea has been injected into “Conservative” circles and now kindled into a flame. That idea is that it is now “stupid” and without utility for man to be in space. I have heard and read this many times now over the last couple of years from “Conservative” right wing types. In my own family even. My uncle, a lifelong staunch right wing conservative and who was enthusiastic about science and a long time science fiction reader who frequently talked about space travel and all that while I was growing up now talks a totally different talk. I noticed this startling change that seemed to happen almost overnight, then I started noticing this mentality was being propagated in some “Right Wing Conservative” magazines and editorialized by “neoconservative” writers.

    I have long stated that psychology and not the usual disciplines that so many “politically” orientated hassle over is the key to understanding AND REVERSING the thinking of our people. Just like my uncle and many others demonstrate concerning spaceflight, over 90 percent of people are totally actuated by propaganda. They can turn on a dime if their authority sources begin propagating a new line of thought.

    Monkey see, monkey do.


    There are some interesting theories concerning Mars that were once ridiculed by establishment science but are most likely correct now that far more is known about the role of electromagnetism and plasma physics in cosmology and celestial mechanics. It may have been that for several centuries up till about 3,000 years ago, the orbit of Mars intercepted that of Earth’s and for 50 year periods Mars was visible and hung stationary in the sky above India appearing about 10 to 15 times the size of the full moon.

    There is more about this and why it was so.

  2. Not that I want to invest money in black communities anyway, but no objective businessman would ever invest in Africans, other than to have access to natural resources on the African continent. The land is more useful than the people. The people are actually a barrier.

    Not only are they hostile to Whites as a group, some individual exceptions, but there is little to no return for the money invested.

    Why should we advance the interests and prop up a hostile, alien race? White guilt? That’s not a good reason, despite what Tim Wise says.

  3. At this point with White nations occupied by the third world and ruled by an Asiatic elite I don’t want to further the space program. Do we really want niggers on Mars? Let’s not pollute another planet. We need to get our house in order first.

  4. Great article.

    ‘The cost of color’ is much greater than most people realize. I view it as not only a loss of the resources wasted, but also the loss of all the benefits that those resources could have provided.

    Space exploration is a perfect example. Also, medical research, new technology, infrastructure, etc.

    Where we are now, compared to where we could be development and technology wise, if we had not wasted so much time, money, and other resources on subsidizing this garbage is a scary thought.

  5. There seems to be general concession to the fact that blacks are incapable of self-reliance and MUST be “propped up” through various programs and initiatives.

    The irony: When colored people succeed in destroying the White infrastructure, they will destroy themselves as well.

    The frustration: Black folks in particular are unwilling (maybe unable) to recognize the vital role White people play in their own survival. That self-delusion will be their (and our) end.

  6. Very true.

    Suppose you burned 25 percent of the money you make every month in a bonfire in your backyard. That is the equivalent of investing $20 million dollars in tracking down the black and Hispanic scientists who are oppressed by “racism.”

    You are not only out of 25 percent of your income. You are also out of all the things that income could have been invested in to increase the net worth of your household. Even if you had just blown the money, you would have created jobs for people in your own community.

    When illegal aliens send remittances home to Mexico and Guatemala, they create jobs in foreign countries instead of jobs in America.

  7. What is the loss we’ve taken by allowing the Darks to destroy our schools? Not just the money wasted on what amounts to day care for Blacks and Hispanics, but the millions of White kids who have learned nothing in the classes they’ve been forced to share with their inferiors?

  8. I don’t see America ever going to the Moon again. It’s jumped the shark, so to speak, as a civilization. I fear for my children’s future here, I really do. Who do I blame? Not minorities, but dumb white Marxists (liberals), the 60’s generation, and the so-called “Greatest Generation”, who let the 60’s generation destroy us as a people. I used to idolize the WWII generation, but quiet frankly, I look and Europe, especially Britian and have to wonder if they would have been better off losing.

  9. The jew Carl Sagan opposed manned space exploration right from the start. Naturally he was one of NASA’s media spokesmen during the triumphant Apollo era.

  10. The way things are going, “first contact” will be when an alien civlization comes to us, not the other way around. Furthermore, when they find out why we stayed out of space, so many of them will laugh themselves to death, that we’ll be dragged before the Interstellar Court of Justice, accused of genocide…

  11. I find myself rooting for the invading aliens in movies like Skyline and Battle: Los Angeles.

    I was clapping when in Skyline the aliens started vacuuming up the people in LA and that degenerate, miscegenous nigger got what he deserved. That’s some really great alien technology, better than a neutron bomb.

  12. Head Start is another program that can be cut to save money. A 40 year boondoggle leftover from the Johnson Era to squander resources on dummies.

  13. I think the WN cause has stalled to the point that little it says resonates with anyone anymore. As a result, the white public has come to accept the image of a black stud in space boots riding a rocket bareback to Mars while laughing at all the white losers left behind.
