John Kennedy , a Democrat , said , we will land a man on the moon and we will do it within a decade . We will do it not because it will be easy but
because it will be hard . Science , research and discovery went into overdrive and more technological achievements were made within that decade than
at any other time in human history . Between NASA , prime contractors , sub-contractors , researchers , suppliers , from high school to college
science teachers 13 million people went to work directly or non-directly to put those men on the moon with good paying jobs .
Now comes Obama in the exact right time in history for any kind of space shot to employ millions and improve the condition . Instead , he squanders
the money . Hundreds of billions of stimulus dollars with absolutely no plan . He gave the Democratic congress blank paper and told them to spend
money so we got tunnels for turtles to walk under highways and research into how to grow better grapes for Pelosi . A small man with absolutely no
forward vision and he just announced in the budget that community organizers and groups are about to receive 500 million dollars .
You don't have to believe in space exploration but just about every technology we enjoy today came directly from NASA research and if you believe in
employment , the the NASA programs put 13 million to work while Obama can't point to one full time job created with hundreds of billions spent except
the hiring of totally un-needed federal workers , mostly in the EPA and Department of Justice . Obama missed his space shot when the Democrats
controlled both houses and he could have put millions to work building rapid transit , high speed rail and re-building the infrastructure of the
country . Instead , most of the last of NASA employees get laid off and the other part of the story is the service industries . For every NASA
employee it takes at least 3 employees to service NASA in private business .
We got more out of NASA than was ever spent and had more spent by Obama than will ever be delivered .
