What is "Spaceport America" but a Political Classhole Slush-Fund? Facebook always yields instances of the Political Classholes getting caught with their pants down and their hands in the cookie jar — Peter St. Cyr Tuesday, November 24, 2020 at 10:32 AM https://facebook.com/Peter505/posts/10221476581518762 An Independent audit confirms serious operational and management problems at Spaceport America. I repeatedly told embattled Director Dan Hicks he could not write his own public records law. This facility was constructed with taxpayer money and needs to be transparent to avoid these kinds of problems in the future.

Wasn't Virgin Galactic the "anchor tenant" for whom Reichsgovernor Richardson built this particular elephante blanco? From SpaceNews — Virgin Galactic declares Spaceport America ready for SpaceShipTwo, by Jeff Foust, 15 August 2019 — Virgin Galactic didn't give a date for when it expects SpaceShipTwo to arrive at the spaceport — WhiteKnightTwo will return to Mojave to fly it to New Mexico — but that when it arrives the company will start with a couple of glide flights to test those upgraded flight controls and to get familiar with the airspace. Once those are done, "we'll be ready for rocket-powered flights," he said. While there is no set number of powered test flights planned before SpaceShipTwo is ready for commercial operations, Moses noted there are currently eight hybrid rocket motors stockpiled at the spaceport. Two other SpaceShipTwo vehicles are under construction in Mojave. Moses said the first of those two should be ready to begin flight tests in 2020.

Considering Virgin Galactic's pre-COVID glacial pace of operations where "Spaceport America" is concerned, on top of the Beer Bug-inspired shutdown mania, it's probably safe to say that 2020 is a write-off at this point. But there's always 2021, right? Go ahead and feel free to make that bet. But hey, at least "Spaceport America" has a nice new lounge that Governess Chipmunk can use to host one of her COVID-non-compliant parties — [https://facebook.com/RPBCVictory/posts/2762282564045718 -- MWB] For what it's worth, that State Auditor's report that St. Cyr linked to above is great fun, if you get your kicks by reading about some of the ways that the Political Classholes have fun at our expense. https://wp.me/pnsSi-2Pg / https://wp.me/p12LUf-hi

Messing About with Article II, Section 6 A few weeks ago, Albuquerque City Councilor Diane Gibson has gotten herself some no-charge campaign advertising, courtesy of the lamestream snoozemedia [1], on account of her calling for a State-level Constitutional Amendment to change Article II, Section 6 of the Constitution of the State of New Mexico from its current text: No law shall abridge the right of the citizen to keep and bear arms for security and defense, for lawful hunting and recreational use and for other lawful purposes, but nothing herein shall be held to permit the carrying of concealed weapons. No municipality or county shall regulate, in any way, an incident of the right to keep and bear arms. -- to something that gives municipal and county governments more leeway to enact victim disarmament statutes: No law shall abridge the right of the citizen to keep and bear arms for security and defense, for lawful hunting and recreational use and for other lawful purposes, but nothing herein shall be held to permit the carrying of concealed weapons. Considering that the sorts of victim disarmament statutes desired by Gibson and her hoplophobic cronies only disarm those who need to own and carry weapons the most -- the five-foot, hundred-pound woman who's being stalked by her crazed six-foot, two-hundred-pound ex-boyfriend -- and don't actually disarm the criminal and terrorist types one bit, those of us who support and exercise the individual, civil, Constitutional, human right to own and carry weapons for ".... for security and defense, for lawful hunting and recreational use and for other lawful purposes ...." would prefer that IF Article II, Section 6 must be amended, that it should read like this afterwards: No law shall abridge the right of the citizen to keep and bear arms for security and defense, for lawful hunting and recreational use and for other lawful purposes. No municipality or county shall regulate, in any way, an incident of the right to keep and bear arms.
