Focus on the Future - Space
AMERICAN PIE GOOD FOR USA & GLOBAL ECONOMY!
American Pie is now for American Propelling-Inspiring-Evolving the humanoid species in space!
There is a need to begin sharing life in a new more evolved way! We are literally years behind where we should be regarding humanoids in space!
We the humanoid sentient intelligent being species are here to explore this Universe, Multiverse, Metaverse, Xenoverse, and Omniverse!
In order for us the people of this planet to understand the next phase of our evolution, we must understand where the future survival of our species will be found. We are to shift and uplift our human evolution into that of being what we were created for in the first place!
We are all going to return to space from where we came! That is the something wonderful is going to happen that we have all heard about growing up! That is the plan for our species!
Those who are in tune with their human evolution will begin realizing we have been sharing the knowledge of those who from the heavens came and there have been many sightings of extraterrestrial spacecraft by many humanoids around this planet. This was to propel, inspire, and encourage our species to become motivated to focus on the next step in our specific evolution. We are to learn to become a part of a much higher level of existence meaning we shall learn to finally take our species into space exploration.
It is much as if we have learned in the last century to reverse engineer alien spacecraft and to learn how we can share in the technology for our future advancement.
Our children need to be encouraged to understand more than our entire species presently does and they will! They are coming to this planet and soon! They will be arriving next year! It is already upon us and we must begin planning now for the Ascension Age!
The Ascension Age is about the shift and uplift of our entire species to be propelled into space. We shall begin the initiative to understand what the old cliché term American Pie really means. It will take on a new meaning to the world if we are to be the leaders in the space race on this planet.
We will now know that American’s were the first to land on the moon for a reason. We will need to have more of our humanoid species with intelligence and knowledge to leave this planet and begin offering their wisdom and skills in space.
We will have to amp up our desires and ambitions to include educating our children around the world with the science, technology, engineering, and math skills to improve not only their quality of life but also the entire species. It will become what is for the greater good of the planet and species.
We must share in the future! We are all going to have to FOCUS on the FUTURE!

President Obama is expected to announce two major developments today at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida that could take the nation's space program to another level.
The first is the development of a new "heavy lift rocket" that will be used to lift future deep-space craft and is supposed to "push the boundaries" ofU.S. exploration in space with the ultimate goal of sending American astronauts to Mars.
The second is the re-structuring of the Orion crew capsule, with a simpler design focused on crew emergency escape from the international space station. Administration officials say this renovation will lay "the foundation for future exploration spacecraft."
These expected announcements come on the heels of other major steps the administration has taken to revamp the nation's space program, including a $6 billion funding increase for the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, and a plan to redirect resources within the space agency and put an end to programs that administration officials say are years behind schedule and millions of dollars over budget.
Critics say NASA is being dramatically scaled back and tens of thousands of jobs are expected to be lost.
The administration insists that this plan is actually going to create 2,500 more jobs in the Florida Space Coast by 2012 and 10,000 over the next decade. The new jobs will come from the development of the commercial space industry and a plan to modernize the Kennedy Space Center.
In addition, the administration says it will launch a $40 million multi-agency initiative to help the Space Coast transform its economy.
White House officials say the bulk of the job losses have been triggered by the decision by the previous Bush administration to cancel the shuttle program in 2004, and that the new jobs created will not replace all those lost shuttle jobs.
However, they say the new program will put the space program on a better trajectory, with more money for NASA, more jobs for the country, more innovation, and more astronaut time in space, more rockets launching sooner and a fundamentally more ambitious and sustainable space program.
Buzz Aldrin Backs Obama Space Plans
Neil Armstrong, the famed astronaut and first moon-walker, has been vocal in his criticism of the new plans for NASA, but the White House is trumpeting their own American heroes -- the first American woman in space, Sally Ride, and the second person to walk on the moon, Buzz Aldrin.
Ride put her stamp of approval on the president's plan, saying Thursday in a statement that his "bold strategic shift" will "excite and energize the next generation."
"It reinvigorates NASA's long-neglected technology program and focuses it on technologies necessary for human exploration," Ride said. "It shifts our focus from the Moon and frees us to chart a path for human exploration into the solar system. It propels astronauts further, faster -- and to a variety of new destinations."
Aldrin issued a statement Wednesday also praising the administration's announcements.
"The President's program will help us be in this endeavor for the long haul and will allow us to again push our boundaries to achieve new and challenging things beyond Earth. I believe that this is the right program at the right time, and I hope that NASA and our dedicated space community will embrace this new direction as much as I do," Aldrin said in the statement.
White House officials say that NASA Administrator Charles Bolden is reaching out to Neil Armstrong. In the meantime, the administration will be convening a task force that will present an economic plan for the Florida space industry to the president within the next 120 days.
"As an Apollo astronaut, I know full well the importance of always exploring new frontiers and tackling new challenges as we explore space. The simple truth is that we have already been to the Moon -- some 40 years ago," Aldrin said.
"What this nation needs in order to maintain its position as the 21st century leader in space exploration is a near-term focus on lowering the cost of access to space and on developing key, cutting-edge technologies that will take us further and faster -- while expanding our opportunities for exploration along the way," he said.

Donald Trump -- or companies that bear his name - have declared bankruptcy four times.
Trump has built an American empire from Las Vegas to New York with towering hotels and sparkling casinos. Forbes estimates he is worth $2.7 billion. However, not all of Trump's business ventures have been constant moneymakers. In 1991, 1992, 2004, and again in 2009, Trump branded companies or properties have sought Chapter 11 protection.
"I've used the laws of this country to pare debt. ... We will have the company. We will throw it into a chapter. We will negotiate with the banks. We will make a fantastic deal. You know, it is like on 'The Apprentice.' It is not personal. It's just business," Trump told ABC's George Stephanopoulos last Thursday.
A business declaring bankruptcy is nothing new in corporate America, where bankruptcy is often sugarcoated as "restructuring debt." Nevertheless, it might seem alarming to everyday Americans who cannot get a bank to restructure their home loans. If you want to get Donald Trump hot under the collar, accuse him of declaring bankruptcy.

Doug Heller, the executive director of Consumer Watchdog, said Trump is the "most egregious, almost comical example" of the disparity between what the average American faces when going through bankruptcy and the "ease with which the very rich can move in and out of bankruptcy."
"Under the American bankruptcy laws, if you end up in bankruptcy because you're struggling with divorce or medical payments or a sudden change of income, it's a disaster. If you fail miserably with huge dollars involved then you just need some accountants to rework your books," Heller said.
The multi-billionaire touts his huge net worth and big business experience as qualifications for his possible presidential run. Trump recently bragged that he has "a much bigger net worth" than Mitt Romney, who he said is "basically a small business guy."
"I'm a much bigger businessman. … I mean, my net worth is many, many, many times Mitt Romney's," Trump said.
The big business man has wrangled with big debt in the past 20 years. Trump's first visit to bankruptcy court was in 1991, when his Atlantic City casino, the Taj Mahal, was buried under a mountain of debt. The Taj carried a $1 billion price tag and was financed by junk bonds carrying a staggering 14 percent interest rate. As construction completed, the economy slumped, as did the Atlantic City gambling scene, soon plunging Trump into $3.4 billion of debt.
