    This is very symbolic of how far America has fallen from grace due to Obama's radical policies aimed at deconstructing the US and its Constitution. He has cancelled the Constellation program that was to take us back to the moon which would be another crowning achievement for America and its exceptionalism. These people will not vote for Obama in 2012 but will instead vote for a candidate who is patriotic stemming with American pride who wants America to be number one in space operations. What a sad day for the workers at Boeing Industries.

    Boeing today sent layoff notices to 510 employees – including 260 in Houston – involved in space shuttle work.

    The notices give 60 days advance notice of an expected job elimination. The workers’ last day would be Aug. 5, pending the completion of the final space shuttle mission, STS-135.

    Do we have really money to be sending people to the moon right now? I'm pretty sure that's not a vital service.

    The OP cited the Constitution?

    I wouild think most conservatives would consider federal funding of flying around in space to be in the unenumerated thus unconstitutional category.

    Let the Chinese do it. Then we'll steal the technology from them 20 years from now. A little turnabout.
