"Whitey's On The Moon"
Space programs have given us some really great technology. But so did Steve Jobs. Sorry Newt, that space colony of yours is going to add to the deficit.
With all the problems we have in this country, and all the whining about "big government," this is Newt's big idea. His fear is that the Chinese will take over the moon before we can. But the Chinese have no official moon program. Chinese space program - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
An example Gingrich used was Lindbergh and his transatlantic prize of $25,000. There actually was a $10,000,000 prize that was won for suborbital space flight. Ansari X Prize - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The winner's included Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen, the investment cost over $100,000,000. Over $100,000,000 to have commercial galactic travel. So we can spread our pollution all over the cosmos.
I believe Newt is batshit crazy. Did he even suggest that we invest in green energy research? Or is he content to watch the polar ice caps melt? Why aren't we making this planet our priority? Why is there no conversation about pollution or green house gas, a/k/a "climate change"? And could we please, please, get a US train system that we could be proud of and save a buttload of energy? And what about people working at home and not commuting anymore, saving even more energy, I can't wait for all that "trickle down" goodness to be showered upon us. Oh, wait, there aren't any jobs. And there are still people that don't have internet access right here, in this country. There goes that idea. Bummer.
Everyone should have a computer and internet access.
What if the government started a work program to have every household hooked up to the internet? Oh that darn defecit!
If it wasn't for the fact that I look at these debates as a comedy show, I would be really worried. These idiots don't stand a chance against President Obama, with their hare-brained schemes. I really hope Newt wins the nomination. I swear, I think he's on something. He gives a whole new meaning to "sky high."
