On today's show I discuss the continuing nature of the struggle between the world's global powers, America, Russia and China. I've been discussing these facts for weeks now and that my analyses have been echoed by major news outlets and political leaders. The hallmark but not the only criteria of a global power is their ability to have a manned space program. America, although not presently and not for some years now, Russia and China are all; therefore "Global Powers" and that along with other conditions you will not hear about in other outlets are the reasons and the direction behind the recent aggressiveness of Russian and China. Then, on the show I read an insightful article from the Manhattan Declaration discussing the nature of the discourse regarding homosexual "marriage" and the fact that Christianity's opposition to it is not based in bigotry but in the desire to adhere to God's plan for life and is not likely to change. Lastly, there are two articles regarding Mexico that I shared. One deals with the sad conditions but remarkable performance on intelligence exams of a poor girl in Matamoros. And Mattel tries again with a Barbie doll that represent Mexican culture with a Barbie in mariachi attire and I like it.
Ten years after the $10 million Ansari XPRIZE opened up the age of private-sector spaceflight, two XPRIZE pioneers reflect on the past decade and look ahead to the future of innovation prizes. Tune in to hear from Robert Weiss, a Hollywood producer (“The Blues Brothers,” “The Naked Gun”) who is vice chairman and president of X Prize; and energy and space expert, Gregg Maryniak, who helped get the Ansari XPRIZE off the ground.

On today's show, the nature and importance of our space programs, its influence on our daily lives, and the importance of the prestige associated with our manned space program as it is the hallmark of a "global power." I explain in the first segment how space program affects our daily lives. Then I discuss the nature of the Constellation Program and its brilliance as being derived from the Space Shuttle system and how Obama cancelled it abruptly. I also discuss the value of the Moon for developing and testing long duration space flight and habitation and mention the several problems that have happened concerning human factors in space flight aboard both Russian and American spacecraft and how America still has more research to do concerning long duration space flight that would be necessary to go to Mars or an asteroid. It makes more sense to return to the Moon to learn those things rather than rush out to an asteroid or Mars without knowing how to do it successfully. I explain the geniuses who caused the cancellation of the Constellation program, Huntress and Holdren, and why they were wrong. Finally, I discuss the minimal reconstitution of the Constellation Program by Congress in the Space Launch System, called SLS, and its terrible slow roll from Obama and Holden and that rocket and its Orion capsule won't be launched, manned, until the early 2020's and we could be flying NOW if Constellation was left in place.
What city has more rocket scientists per capita than anyplace else in America? Huntsville, home of the Manned Space Flight Center, is also known for parks, museums, and a rich historic legacy predating the Civil War. Hear all about the one-time capital of Alabama from Charles Winters on Thursday, September 18, when he visits TRAVEL ITCH RADIO at 8p ET on iTunes and BlogTalkRadio.com.

I discuss first the importance and imperativeness of Latinos going to the polls and voting. I also discuss the distastefulness of both Wendy Davis and Greg Abbott, both running for Governor of Texas for example, from the perspective of the Latino voter and how both are unworthy. I advise you to write in your own name but you must vote! I discuss the Latino Decisions piece on the necessity of mobilizing the Latino voters in key districts. I go on to discuss an editorial about the incompetence of Obama in dealing with terrorism around the globe and especially with ISIS and I remind you that we called for war on ISIS a month ago and before you heard it anywhere else in national media. Manned space flight is the hallmark of a global power and America, Russia and China are the only "Global Powers" if that is true but America, the greatest power is now unable to launch men into space on its own. What does that say about us? It, like our foreign and economic policies, makes America appear weak and feckless. Now that we are in disagreement with Russia regarding their invasion of Ukraine and supporting war in that nation we are in the unenviable position of both arguing with them and cooperation with them on the ISS and space flight. Obama is largely to blame for these situations as he deliberately cancelled the Constellation program and has slow rolled the SLS program.
We look at a lot of scenarios for what might happen in the future -- cool technological developments, major advances in science, new evolutionary developments for humans and for other species on this planet -- but are there any future developments that we can say with any certainty will happen?
Hosts Stephen Gordon and Phil Bowermaster introduce the Inevitablity Scale, a tool for gauging whether a specific future outcome is inevitable. We will take a look at how some future events stack up when measured for inevitability:
The Next Presidential Election
The End of the World
The First Manned Flight to Mars
The Emergence of Greater-than-Human Artificial Intelligence
What can we say for sure that we know is going to happen? Tune in and explore.

Michael and Edward Hudgins (of the Atlas Society) get together that about SPACE and his new book, Space: The Free-Market Frontier. Hudgins explains government boondoggles related to space stations, space regulation, rocketry, and rocket manufacturing supply chain issues … like depending on Russian manufacturers for all sorts of equipment. He’s even done stuff with Buzz Aldrin, who walked on the moon (and memorably shouted at it with Liz Lemon).
Hudgins, who spent his childhood fascinated with Space and Astronomy, interned at Goddard Space Flight Center and got to follow the first moon landing from a major space center. Since then, Space has been a passion for him.
Hudgins put together his book with the Cato Institute, after a conference he designed on the Free Market and Space. Hudgins has been working on the free market in space and space travel for some time now.
He points to the deregulation of the air lines that lead to lower prices for consumers. Despite the deregulation of many industries and sectors, the government maintained a monopoly on space. Elon Musk, of SpaceX has revealed a manned capsule to put humans into space.
He advocates for allowing human innovation and entrepreneurship to flourish without government regulation and restriction. He encourages free, open-market solutions to space travel to make it more affordable and practical for everybody.
