HR 2617: To establish Apollo Lunar Landing Sites National Park on the Moon

[These people are not living on planet earth. Not only is the proposing of such a bill ridiculous, but also because definitive proof of man ever having set foot on the moon is still lacking.]

Dems pitch national park on the moon
By Pete Kasperowicz - 07/09/13 11:45 AM ET

Two House Democrats have proposed legislation that would establish a national historical park on the surface of the moon to mark where the Apollo missions landed between 1969 and 1972.

The bill from Reps. Donna Edwards (D-Md.) and Eddie Bernice Johnson (D-Texas) would create the Apollo Lunar Landing Sites National Historical Park. The park would be comprised of all artifacts left on the surface of the moon from the Apollo 11 through 17 missions.

The bill says these sites need to be protected because of the anticipated increase in commercial moon landings in the future.

Whoever submitted this bill should be immediately recalled by his and her constituency for wasteful inaction of time on the people's dime.

Interesting derivation of the word "lunacy." Thanks.

"From the Earth to the Moon" is a humorous science fantasy novel by Jules Verne and is one of the earliest entries in that genre.

Democratic 2013 NASA Authorization Bill Calls for $18.1 Billion, Commitment to Human Landing on Mars

Updated: 08-Jul-2013 09:23 PM

As promised, Rep. Donna Edwards (D-MD) introduced a Democratic version of a 2013 NASA authorization bill today. The bill would authorize NASA funding at $18.1 billion, higher than President Obama's FY2014 request of $17.7 billion and much higher than the $16.9 billion in the Republican version of the bill.

Edwards announced this morning that she would introduce a bold and audacious bill that clearly sets the vision for NASA as landing humans on the surface of Mars in 2030. Highlights of the bill, H.R. 2616, as listed in an emailed Democratic committee press release, include the following:

· Preserving NASA’s purchasing power relative to FY2012 enacted levels by authorizing $18.1 billion;

· Providing a clear goal of a crewed mission to the surface of Mars and requiring a roadmap that identifies intermediate destinations and activities which contribute to enabling achievement of that goal;

· Recognizing the Space Launch System (SLS) and Orion crew vehicle as the highest priorities for carrying out the Mars goal;

· Providing robust funding for commercial crew system development of $700 million per year;

Mars Ride Ticket: Breach of Contract Clause. $18 B refundable.

Earth Mars Ride Ticket: $5 $18 billion.

This ticket is only good for departure from United States of America, Earth with arrival upon Mars. Non-stop. One way. If no ticketed passenger arrives on the Moon planet Mars before the end of the decade (December, 1969) the next couple of decades (estimate currently 2030) bearer (tax payer) will receive full cash refund (inflation adjusted).

This ticket is not a receipt. $5 $18 billion funding is exclusively for manned space travel as stipulated above.

HOLY LAND EXCURSION, San Francisco Alta California, August 18, 1867

These people drank wine and made merry, last night, until I was ready to go; then they wept, and presented me with the following beautiful memorial, wrought upon parchment:

    MR. MARK TWAIN. (Donation Receipt)

    To Mrs. O'Shaughnessy and 9 children.

    To washing, which the same has not been paid for - $18 45

    To Hope Restaurant for sustenance - 68 25

    To subscription to dinner for benefit of Orphan's Fund,

    50 cents, and to difference between subscription and

    amount of dinner consumed by subscriber - 6 30

    Several more items of this nature were in the memorial, and also a nice blank place for "RECEIVED PAYMENT." The blank mars the beauty of the thing to some extent, but still I suppose it will answer the way it is. Usually, blanks are unsightly because they are so meaningless, but this one is full of expression.

I can give you a specimen of our passengers, if you like, but I am glad to say he is the only specimen of the kind on the list at least he is the only one left now. When he heard that General Sherman was going to remain in the States, he howled fearfully. Indeed, he almost shed tears. He said:

"There, I just thought so, all along. I just knew how it would be. I tell you the trip has lost all its charms! I wouldn't give two straws to go now. I had rather have lost my right arm than that this should have happened."

This fellow had tried to stipulate that his wife should be introduced to Miss Sherman early, and have a seat next her at table, and that he should be permitted to sit next the General himself! And next, I suppose this flunkey would have waited to hold the General's hat while he washed his teeth. General Sherman ought to congratulate himself upon his escape from five months' worship by this bred-and-born slave. If that man goes in the ship and you hear that somebody has fallen overboard in a dark and mysterious manner, some night, you can calculate that it is he.

Another passenger - a solemn, unsmiling, sanctimonious old iceberg that looked like he was waiting for a vacancy in the Trinity, as Henry Clapp said of Rev. Dr. Osgood - walked in the other day and stood around for some time, and finally said he had forgotten, when he took passage, to inquire if the excursion would come to a halt on Sundays. Captain Duncan replied that he hardly expected to anchor the ship in the middle of the Atlantic, but that on shore everybody would be free - no restrictions - free to travel on Sunday or not, just as they saw fit; and he had no doubt that some would do one and some the other. The questioner did not groan audibly, but I think he did inwardly. Then he said it would be well for people to calculate their chances before doing wrong; that he had always got into trouble when he traveled on the Sabbath, and that he should do so no more when he could avoid it; that he lately traveled with a man in Illinois who would not lay by on Sunday because he could not afford the time, but he himself laid by and still beat the sinner and got to the end of the journey first.

Now I respected that man's repugnance to violating the Sabbath until he betrayed that he would violate it in a minute if he were not afraid the lightning would strike him, or something else would happen to him, and then I lost my reverence for him. I thought I perceived that he was not good and holy, but only sagacious, and so I turned the key on my valise and moved it out of his reach. I shall have to keep an eye on that fellow.
