Dennis Hope Will Sell You A Plot Of Land On The Moon. Jubbling Helps Pick Its First President.

MoonShop's Dennis Hope with his moon lots for sale.Dennis Hope has been selling $24.00 plots of land on the moon for 30+ years. To date, Mr. Hope’s MoonShop has sold just under 600 million acres of moon properties and he has approx 9.4 billion acres left to sell. How is he selling property on the moon? According to Mr. Hope, he’s found a loophole in the Outer Space Treaty of 1967 and he filed a claim on it. Here’s a NY Times video on Dennis Hope:

Of course a moon colony is going to need a leader and we’ve got just the person – Northwest Ordinance for Space advocate Newt Gingrich.
New Gingrich - first President of Moonsylvania.
Mr. Gingrich is qualified and a nice bonus is that he’ll push for statehood once the moon’s population reaches 13,000. Be sure to give Governor Gingrich time; he might complain a little at the start about wanting to come back to earth and that he’s a changed man but he’s done that before and eventually, he’ll come around to moon life.

So how does buying land on the moon fit with Jubbling? It’s a reminder of how important it is to take care of the planet we actually live on and it’s a reminder that we need to reduce the amount of money we waste on bad ideas. [Gizmodo]


We Liked Newt Gingrich’s Moon Colony Idea More Than This One

Newt GingrichFrom the Huffington Post:

In a column in the conservative blog Human Events Wednesday, the former House speaker urged the approval of the Keystone XL pipeline project, the expansion of domestic oil and gas drilling, and the elimination of the Environmental Protection Agency, in order to help drive gas prices down to $2.50 per gallon.

Yes, the moon colony is looking better and better.


Newt Gingrich: All Giddy About His Moon Colony Idea. Saving Planet Earth… Not As Much.

Newt Gingrich on the moon.Let the crazy begin! Newt Gingrich, stumping for votes near Cape Canaveral Florida yesterday, let his space-reliant audience know that he’d like to establish a colony on the moon sometime during his first and second term as US President. Early in his career, he even introduced the “Northwest Ordinance for space” which would allow the moon to qualify for statehood once it reached 13,000 residents. Here’s Newt’s answer as to why he’d like to develop the moon:

I think there are a lot of different things you’d want to learn: How to live in low gravity. How to create certain capabilities that lead beyond the moon. How to develop assets that the moon has. How to do manufacturing in low-gravity environments.

Personally, I wish we’d get things right on this planet before we look to colonize others. So Newt, could you start by renouncing your renouncement of the pro-environment commercial you made with Nancy Pelosi? You and Nancy seemed to be in such agreement on the effects of climate change that I thought you were going to kiss at the end of the video. And for your sequel to 2007’s “A Contract With Earth” that’s coming out after the election? Maybe you should re-add the chapter by Christian climate scientist Katherine Hayhoe that attributes man-made forces as a cause for global warming. The geeky scientist in you knows it’s going on but the politician refuses to let you come out of the closet.

And if you do all of these things, I promise I will consider your somewhat batshit-crazy idea to colonize the moon if you become our President. Otherwise, I’m supporting the idea put forth by Mr. Show with Bob and David 15+ years before you on what we need to do with the moon. [Washington Post][youtube width=”425″ height=”319″][/youtube]
