Gingrich on the Future of the Moon:

I couldn’t resist blogging about what GOP Candidate Newt Gingrich claims he will do by the end of his second Presidential term. He says that he would “have a colony on the moon.” No really. He claimed himself as the leader of the “Moon Land Ordinance,” meaning that when the population of our “moon colony” reaches 13,000 people, it could apply for statehood. Of course, this moon colony wouldn’t be for leisure! It would be used for farming, manufacturing and crime fighting. I am still in disbelief. 

Newt Gingrich has previously commented on “reckless spending” done by the Obama Administration. But I wonder if he knows that the average cost of a NASA launch mission is $450 MILLION! And that’s after it takes $1.7 BILLION to build a shuttle. 

I would rather hear him talk about his specific plans for our economy, the education system or our healthcare system. But no… He’s gaining support by promising a colony on the moon. I’m speechless.
