Proud members of the Vast Right Wing Conspiracy. We strongly believe in personal freedom, responsibility, and gun rights. We also believe in the 90/10 theory. That means that 10% of the people have 90% of the talent. Unfortunately, we are not in the 10% category. However, the rest of us are still better than 90% of the politicians.

Chicken Sex and Spaceflight

Midland International Airport is seeking designation as a commercial space launch site but will now have to prove that the noise will not upset the mating rituals of the lesser prairie chicken.  It was declared endangered in March and this may delay final approval of the environmental impact assessment by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.  Guess it's a good thing it wasn't the Greater Prairie Chicken.  Who knows how what priority their sex life would take?  Hopefully this won't come down to chicken sex instead of spaceflight.  Once the environmental assessment is complete the FAA will have until Sept. 15th to issue a spaceport license.  XCOR is awaiting approval and plan to launch commercial spaceflight from the Midland Spaceport.
