He froze NASA's budget on conferences.  So my annual trip to Daytona Beach to the NASA Program Management conference has been canceled.    

I was really really looking forward to that trip.

We should redirect all of the money that goes to welfare handouts to NASA. That would be awesome.

Whitey on the Moon

A rat done bit my sister Nell.
(with Whitey on the moon)
Her face and arms began to swell.
(and Whitey's on the moon)
I can't pay no doctor bill.
(but Whitey's on the moon)
Ten years from now I'll be payin' still.
(while Whitey's on the moon)
The man jus' upped my rent las' night.
('cause Whitey's on the moon)
No hot water, no toilets, no lights.
(but Whitey's on the moon)
I wonder why he's uppin' me?
('cause Whitey's on the moon?)
I wuz already payin' 'im fifty a week.
(with Whitey on the moon)
Taxes takin' my whole damn check,
Junkies makin' me a nervous wreck,
The price of food is goin' up,
An' as if all that shit wuzn't enough:
A rat done bit my sister Nell.
(with Whitey on the moon)
Her face an' arm began to swell.
(but Whitey's on the moon)
Was all that money I made las' year
(for Whitey on the moon?)
How come there ain't no money here?
(Hmm! Whitey's on the moon)
Y'know I jus' 'bout had my fill
(of Whitey on the moon)
I think I'll sen' these doctor bills,
Airmail special
(to Whitey on the moon)

I'm a huge supporter of the space program, and it pisses me off that it's getting less and less funding.  Meanwhile, we're apparently 'happy' to bail out banks and automakers....

Scenery? Dunno actually... I think flying people somewhere when we can do video conferences is really stupid.  NASA is cool and all but it's to wasteful, sorry to say to the OP but I'm not all that sad about what happened and for once Bush did something useful, now if only he did stuff like this much more often.

Fucking crybaby.  

NASA's got all that high tech shit and you're bitching cuz you can't go to a conference?

1. DB is close to Kennedy, where a lot of the people come from, so it is a short travel distance.  The conference alternates with Galveston, TX, which is close Johnson space center, another Center where a lot of people come from. As to reduce travel costs!

2. It is a conference of 3000+ people. How the ever loving hell would YOU set that up in a teleconference?  It is about 8 hours a day for 2 days with multiple separate 1 hour classes holding about 100 people each. You guys don't have a clue what the fuck you are talking about.

My company does the logistical work of producing the conference, as well as man a vendor booth..of which registration costs offset a lot of the conference cost to the taxpayer.

We have a full time NASA web developer sitting in the cube next to mine. We are looking for a general programmer, not specific to NASA websites as we have that covered. But we have other .gov websites we manage too.  You would have to be in Northern Virginia.

We have a friend who hates Pres. Reagan.  Her dad worked for the FAA as a high-level administrator (GM-15 or SES).   Under Carter the FAA had a convention every year at Disneyworld.  Families stayed at the Contemporary or Polynesian Resort, at Federal government (taxpayers) expense.  These days those rooms go for around $400/night, so they were pretty expensive even in 1980.  When Ronald Reagan got elected, he cancelled all these government boondoggles and from then on the annual meeting was in Crystal City, VA.
