The Prez wants to shut down NASA thereby saving a whole bunch of money that he can spend on something else. STOP! Don't spend it. Isn't there a way to have your cake and eat it too?
How about letting private enterprise take over? A consortium or conglomerate could generate funds to integrate their present staffs of space guys and girls, hire the NASA employees who already know what they are doing and have at it.
Frankly, I don't know enough about any potential money making aspects of a project such as sending man to the moon and beyond, but we have always had dreamers and adventurers who are willing to invest in the future. People like JFK maybe. Most of us are probably more like Obama than we'd like to admit--you know, kinda timid and wimpy on taking chances, but methinks it is exciting enough for me to watch someone else successfully climb the tallest mountains and marvel at some of the things others do and most of us just might dream about.
Speaking of the President, has it occurred to anyone else that he seems to be manifesting the traits of ADD? Lately he has been jumping from place to place and subject to subject and as Judge Judy is fond of saying, "You don't have to have a good memory if you tell the truth." Says one thing to one group and the opposite to another group. Can't tell the players without a program anymore.
Another Friday evening has come and gone,
so have a good weekend--
