  • We don't need to to rely on the Daily Shoe to get this information. It is just common sense. Face it Sarah Palin is an idiot. Why do you keep trying to defend her. You will have to give up one day. The more she talks, the more stupid things flow out of her mouth.

  • It helped. The race for space with the US contributed to it, because the USSR had an unsustainable economic model--communism.

  • Actually, Reagan pushed the space race to help push the collapse of the USSR. He know they could not afford it and would collapse. I didn't watch the video because I knew it would be progressive BS.

  • I knew someone would defend Sarah Palin - someone always does, no matter how ridiculous the statement!

  • Why do you keep trying to defend her.

    ***
    Defend who?! I didn't look at the link. Is that what it was about? SARAH PALIN?!?! LMAO!! You just CAN'T stop talking about her, can you?!?! I don;t even THINK about her, unless I'm on this site and a LIBERAL posts a question about or in reference to her!!

    You really should talk to a professional about that issue!! :o)
