AMSAT needs to form a union, overpay it's employees, then the leadership can tell the US government that if we don't get a massive infusion of taxpayer dollars that AMSAT will have to file for bankruptcy, therefore putting all of those high paid union employees out of a job, and as a side bar we can tell them that we are doing solar panel research as well.
Hell with the way this president likes to throw money away, I figure we'll have over $500,000,000.00 by election day(isn't that what they gave that solar cell company a few months ago?)
You boy's at HQ gotta think outside the box! we could put transponder on the moon with that kinda cash!
I think I'll go listen to some telemetry to soothe my jangled nerves!
See how easy that was to solve!
