SpaceShipOne, Government Zero

Michael Badnarik is getting smart in finding ways to pop himself into the spotlight (or near it). He’s applauded the SpaceShipOne launch and sent them a congratulatory letter saying:

It is my hope to attend a subsequent launch of SpaceShipOne — perhaps at the second “X-prize” flight — and if possible to shake your hand and extend these congratulations personally.

It would be extremely timely and would highlight the libertarian stance of private business over government (and the press could snap some photos of him shaking hands). He’ll need to get on the ball and clear a day off his schedule though because that’s going to be very very soon. According to the X-Prize rules, “The flight vehicle must be flown twice within a 14-day period.”

I've published HoT along with about 300+ friends since 2002. We're all Americans who are snarky and love our country. I'm a libertarian that registered Republican because I like to win elections. That's pretty much it.
