Bush to seek manned flights to Moon, Mars
"We're running out of room for detainees at Guantanamo Bay," he explained. He promised to pay for the new programs through more tax cuts and wars. He said that his program wouldn't be as expensive as Apollo, since all of the scientists and engineers will be graduates of faith-based education. "If they believe hard enough, we'll get there." The first contract in the program was awarded last week: $200 billion for Halliburton for building barracks and dining halls on Mars. Bush added: "We choose to go to the Moon and Mars, not because it is easy, but because it is an enormous opportunity to give taxpayer money to campaign contributors. Almost as good as war."
