President Obama's 'Mission to the Moon'

"That's One Small Step for [a] Man..."

"...One Giant Leap for Mankind." -- Neil Armstrong

In my youth, President John Kennedy laid out the original challenge to put a man on the Moon and return him safely to Earth. Thus was born the mission of NASA. In one short decade, men walked on another heavenly body for the first time. The priority of keeping pace with a hostile Soviet Union was brilliantly carried out by a civilian agency in a peaceful mission.

Today another 'race to the Moon' threatens the financial foundations of the nation that put a man on the Moon. My friend Jamie Waltz elaborates in his video: Moon Stacking President. As you watch the presentation, keep these facts in mind: The Average Distance to the Moon is 218,857 Miles. The Thickness of a One Dollar Bill is .0043 Inches.[1.]
