1. And Newt thinks there are better ways to transport the family dog
than putting him in a cage on the roof of a station wagon.

2. Mirrors in space;
To collect solar energy has been a mainstay of Sci-Fi for decades. Colonies on the Moon needs to be a priority, for any reason, promoted by any person. The stated reason for Newt's endorsement of this idea is for mining of rare metals. If you've been keeping track of recent news, you'd know that China, with so much of these rare metals within it's sphere of control, has effectively cut off exporting the same. This could lead to a situation that is reminiscent of Japan's stated reason for it's entry into WWII; it's inability to import ores and other minerals necessary to keep its economy strong.

But one favorable aspect of Newt's platform does not counter 1,000 crazy and detrimental other policies.

4. Why do they still call him "Speaker"...
He's a fuckin ex fox news hack who got fired from congress for ethics violations,
and fined 300 Grand, Just like they refer to Palin as "Governor" Do you think they
call Anthony Weiner "Congressman" ?
