From The Orlando Sentinel: That has prompted NASA to advertise a long list of KSC facilities and equipment as available for use, lease or, in some cases, outright purchase by the right business. Among them: Launch Pad 39A, where shuttles were launched; space in the Vehicle Assembly Building, the iconic 526-foot-tall structure first used to assemble Saturn V-Apollo rockets; the Orbiter Processing Facilities, essentially huge garages where the shuttles were maintained; Hangar N and its high-tech test equipment; the launch-control center; and various other buildings and chunks of undeveloped property. A lot of the stuff needs to be transferred by the end of 2013, when federal maintenance money will run out. When it does, machinery will start to rust, and buildings will deteriorate in the harsh coastal-marsh environment of Cape Canaveral.

Here we are seeing American's proud history just disappear before our eyes. It's a shame.

Remember, NASA's mission now is to just makes Muslims feel good about themselves.

Somehow, surrendering space to China must do this.

For the record, I'm not totally against privatizing much of NASA. I beleive the private sector can do better and cheaper if given the opportunity.

But NASA's budget was around 20 billion per year (I think). That's a.drop in the bucket compared to EBT and welfare costs. At least we got to see something for our money. What are we getting in return for welfare? More babies. More welfare

The Bolshevik stated prior to the morons voting him in the 1st time that he wouldn't weaponize space.

Sounds like they are just selling off old/unused stuff.....

They are still building new stuff....

The Future of NASA? Once Again, Obama Says Nothing
http://tierneylab.blogs.nytimes.com/2009...a-says-nothing/

Instead, the agency is doing everything but. It’s been drifting, delaying and courting upstart aerospace companies to build what’s already been built, ignoring the days when America was clearly No. 1.

I can't provide you a link, but I can provide you with first hand knowledge..... The company I work for has been contracted for some of the system schematics, engineering checks, and system process testing for a new launch pad/system on the coast of Virginia.

I could have gone to the site, but had already been working in Virginia for 7 months and was ready to be back in Tennessee.... this was a year ago.

Why when there is no money would they build new in Virginia what they already have in Florida.

NASA is tearing down Langley Research Center's 16-foot transonic wind tunnel. It's quite a storied place, having tested everything from the F-14 Tomcat to the space shuttle.

I don't think they were building new in Virginia what they have in Florida....

With the economy in the tank, funding being cut, and who knows what on the horizon.... testing has slowed way down, I can say that with first hand experience as well.... There are other wind tunnels and testing facilities, most likely with newer technology, maybe they are just trimming the fat so to speak....

The OBAMA-nation is going to be trimming the fat so to speak....in every technology America is the world leader in. We will lose all new weapons systems that the country is working on and this new Defense Department man will be OBAMAs hatchet man with the military cuts. He will cut every branch of the military by half and that means scrapping half the few Navy ships we have now.

Is the government giving out free cell phones?
Yes. This part is true. They fund low end cell phones plans, and offset some of the cost of landline phones. The programs that authorize the phone distribution program are called Lifeline Assistance and Lifeline Link-Up. Lifeline Assistance helps pay monthly phone bills and Lifeline Link-Up helps pay the initial outlay for the phone and installation. The two programs are often lumped together and simply called Lifeline.

These Lifeline cell phones are delivered through relatively new, government-approved cell phone companies like Safelink Wireless, Assurance Wireless and Reachout Wireless, among others. These companies were spun of off larger prepaid cell phone companies to specialize in the Lifeline program.

Obama Advisor: Hagel Will Bring ‘Huge Cuts’ to the Military

In today’s New York Times, David Brooks argues persuasively that Chuck Hagel has been nominated to help Barack Obama dramatically cut defense spending.

Chuck Hagel has been nominated to supervise the beginning of this generation-long process of defense cutbacks. If a Democratic president is going to slash defense, he probably wants a Republican at the Pentagon to give him political cover, and he probably wants a decorated war hero to boot.

All the charges about Hagel’s views on Israel or Iran are secondary. The real question is, how will he begin this long cutting process? How will he balance modernizing the military and paying current personnel? How will he recalibrate American defense strategy with, say, 455,000 fewer service members?

How, in short, will Hagel supervise the beginning of America’s military decline? If members of Congress don’t want America to decline militarily, well, they have no one to blame but the voters and themselves.
