I am very happy to see this is the topic of the meetup. I know a lot of people working with NASA are losing their jobs already, and are very upset about Obama's arrogant decision to write off America's manned presence in space. I am very active with groups, such as the Kesha Rogers for Congress campaign (TX-22) in lobbying and organizing to force a reversal this decision, puttin forward a science-driver proposal to colonize the Moon and Mars.
As part of this, I was invited to join another forum, which I will pass on to you all. The address is www.savenasa.ning.com
and it has people from all over the USA and also the world. It's not very active yet, but I'm actually putting together a meetup through that group, which is posted here: http://savenasa.ning.com/forum/topics/we-need-a-plan-of-action?xg_source=activity
I don't mean to basely preempt or undermine our meetup by posting this one, but I just wanted to put this on the table since it is happening anyway, and I realize this group here has some real potential. It's a lunch meetup at the Fuddrucker's across the street from JSC, this Wednesday, the 31st of March from noon to 1pm.

Disclaimer: Any opinions on this site/meetup or from myself are entirely my own as a private citizen and do not imply any corporate or governmental endorsement. I am interested in promoting real science not discussing politics, religion (or UFOs or other fringe 'sciences')...so for example SETI is a welcome topic, but Alien Abductions are not! (I'm sure theres an alien abduction group y'all can join for that :)
