PayPal lets you make payments in space or on other planets and space stations: Space commerce plans are underway. As far as space and time, check out the article, “PayPal Galactic Gets a Jumpstart on Space Currency.” Apparently, you will in a number of years, be able to make payments from outer space or on other worlds. Check out the June 30, 2013 article, “PayPal teams up with SETI to launch PayPal Galactic (a Space Bank).”
PayPal will be pushing payments from our world to the next, and beyond. According to PayPal, space commerce is necessary so that astronauts can pay for their bills on Earth and entertainment, such as downloading via the Internet, music and e-books, while in Space.
The Internet is becoming space-wide. You can check out the website of the the Space Tourism Society, who will also work on the project. Plans from builders of hotels look forward to the first space hotels that probably will be operational in the next five to ten years. So you need a way to pay your bills from space. And PayPal is the first to make sure that payment system will be in place when you need it.
Astronaut and author Buzz Aldrin, will attend PayPal Galactic’s launch on Thursday afternoon at the SETI Institute in California
In the next few years, the various tours of Mars, the moon, even space tourism industries that only orbit the Earth or moon need to have the tourists in space and the astronauts the comforts from home such as being able to pay bills online from space or from other worlds.
Space tourists and astronauts will need a way to move their money around or help someone on Earth. In a few years, humans may be traveling to or perhaps colonizing Mars to turn it green. Or, even tourists anywhere in space will need Internet access to transact business, help others, or make payments.
That’s one reason why PayPal Galactic is stepping up to the plate first. The question now is can Pay Pal Galactic also be used for payments or other transactions while still on Earth? And eventually will offices be established on other worlds or on orbiting space stations?

When news becomes a matter of interpretation
The first atheist monument allowed on government property in the USA now stands as a monument to non-belief right next to a granite slab engraved with the Ten Commandments in front of the rural Bradford County courthouse in northern Florida.
How it got there started with American Atheists suing to have the slab with the Ten Commandments removed from government property from where it stands on the lawn of the courthouse. The slab with the Ten Commandments stands in the lawn’s “free-speech” zone.
During the mediation part of the lawsuit case, the atheist group learned it could put up its own monument to non-belief so that there would be two slabs next to one another with different messages since the lawn is a free-speech zone. A group called the Community Men’s Fellowship erected The Ten Commandments slab on the courthouse lawn. The goal is to understand that the courthouse lawn has room for the both points of view, since there’s enough space in the free speech areas for both messages.
First Atheist monument allowed on government property stands next to Ten Commandments granite slab on courthouse lawn’s free speech area
Looking at the 10 Commandments slab, most viewers would realize that what it says is mostly what’s in federal and state laws, for the most part, and on the lawn of a courthouse. Commandments such as no killing, no stealing, respecting one’s parents, not cheating on one’s partner, not coveting your neighbor’s property (thoughts of theft meditation) or wife, are acts that get a person into courthouses if those rules re broken, since most of the moral Commandments turn out to be laws as well as moral values.
The Commandments have more to do with how to live and get along with people without trying to take away their life savings, property, loved ones, or health than they relate to what happens in the afterlife, contacts with ghosts, or who you get reincarnated as, all of which are subject to the imagination or interpretation of societies in different ways around the globe. The moral of this story is that there’s room for more than one belief on the courthouse ground in the free-speech area.
Some of the Ten Commandments may be anti-art student when it comes to portrait painting, doll making, crafting faces on humanoid-like robots, or figure human or animal sculpture, according to the King James Version of the Bible
1) Thou shalt have no other gods before me.
2) Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth: Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me; And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments.
This Commandment teaches the skills of respecting the names used in other people’s religions, like don’t disrespect the prophets of other people’s religions because other people in many lands have different names in different languages for their prophets, ancestors, or deities. It also implies that Congress shall make no foreign laws legal in the USA for all the people, and separation of house of worship and state
3) Thou shalt not take the name of the LORD thy God in vain; for the LORD will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain.
This commandment allows business days to be Monday through Friday in the USA, such as when transferring money between banks
4) Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy. Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work: But the seventh day is the sabbath of the LORD thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates: For in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the LORD blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it.
This Commandment at least allows parents to call the police and have their children held in juvenile detention centers if their kids begin to act out and threaten to harm themselves or other people, including the parents or siblings….Needed that law to be obeyed when Cain and Abel didn’t agree to disagree.
5) Honor thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee.
6) Thou shalt not kill.
7) Thou shalt not commit adultery.
8) Thou shalt not steal.
This Commandment under the law is known as perjury
9) Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbor.
And this Commandment comes in handy for protection with landlords, property managers, or banks when it comes to foreclosure and tenant eviction as well as falls under the state and federal laws of theft premeditation
10) Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor’s house, thou shalt not covet thy neighbor’s wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his ***, nor any thing that is thy neighbor’s.
Why are men and women in the public eye viewed differently when it comes to age
For people approaching 70 or way past that age, you’re not too old to run for office, but you may be too smart to run for office. Hillary Rodham Clinton will be 69 by Election Day 2016. That’s the same age Ronald Regan reached when first elected in 1980, yet those who appeal to motivate young voters say she’s old and tired.
It seems when a woman reaches 70, the media rants use words such as old and tired, but when a man of the same age runs for various offices, he’s experienced with the wisdom of age. See, “Should There Be An Age Limit To Run For Office? – HuffPost Live.” And you may wish to check out, “No, Hillary Clinton is not too old to be president – Salon.com.” See, “At 69, will Hillary Clinton be too old to run for president in 2016 – Quora.”
Interestingly, when a man is too old to run for office, the news headline may say he’s too smart to run for office. But when a woman wants to run for office and the headlines say she’s too old, often they don’t add the words, “too smart.” It seems the only older runners that get kudos in the news are those who actually are physically running as in marathons, where older runners run for fitness rather than for office. See, “Older runners | Running for Fitness.”
When women run for office, it’s often: “You can fool Mother Nature, but you can’t fool Father Time”
How many politicians would trade the energy of youth for the wisdom of age and still style themselves as fit with “vim and vigor?” Age is not only a matter of being in the eye of the beholder, a matter of interpretation, but also is viewed differently in the media if the person running for office is male or female. See, “How Old Is Too Old? : Blog Of The Nation: NPR.”
Check out, “Senator Frank Lautenberg Is Too Old to Run for Reelection.” See, “Win your next campaign – NGP VAN – ngpvan.com.” Apparently, age and office is open to interpretation. The young may see the old as experienced or as tired. The old may see their peers as experienced, distinguished, and sharers of wisdom. The young may look first at energy, freshness and charisma. People often are viewed like celery, if it snaps when bent, it’s fresh and has buzz appeal. If it bends, the energy and electricity are either spent, on holiday, or somewhere else in time. Maybe it’s time for space tourism business for anyone, regardless of age.
