The Space Force is a giant boondoggle that is another silly excuse for the government to get the US deeper into debt.

Let's call a spade a spade.


Pretty close to being right for a change.

The US Air Force already leads Military Space Operations.
I didn't know that. Is that why we have to have the Russians take us to and from the space station? Does the Air Force have the capability to launch satellites? I thought they just launched ICBMs and other nuclear armed missiles...

I saw that... The Air Force is military. If they had the capability, we could contract with them to send people to the space station and pick them up. It would be good practice.

Yes.

Air Force Space Command (AFSPC), sometimes referred to informally as "U.S. Space", involves the launching of satellites and other unmanned spacecraft into orbit and recovery, when applicable.

This was probably true in the 1970s.  The USAF Space Command has come a LONG way since then!

Thanks Chief. Obviously we don't need another new branch of the military.

Here's an article I thought was interesting. The supposedly anti-war "progressive" media/press seems to be a bunch of silly hypocrites-

All conversations on this board lead to the same direction.  Americans expressing their discontent with their government, while some praising it at the same time. Or the others not praising Trump but condemning that which would counter his ignorance and extremism.

If Americans chose a direction that made sense for the reform they so desperately need, then it would start to make sense. Instead they embrace impossible pie in the sky nonsense such as the current LP agenda that so desperately needs reworking. Or, in some cases, not addressing the falacies of the LP agenda but inferring through their presense on this board that is what the see as their salvation.

Socialist reform is in America's future. If they are lucky it will be reform to a moderate degree which is so desperately needed. Not completely descending into something more akin to communism.

How angry will the people be when the say they've had enough? As angry as the Russian people when they took up communism to pull themselves up by their bootstraps?

It depends mostly on how long the reform takes to come about. Sadly, great nations have never reformed themselves in moderated ways. It always means a lot of blood will be spilt!

Th LP is perfect as it is, Dink.  No "reworking" or reforms needed.

If the LP agenda were to be "reworked" or reformed, then the LP would become something different.

Of course, no real libertarian would want that!

Ted Cruz:

"Pirates threaten the open seas, and the same is possible in space. In this same way, I believe we, too, must now recognize the necessity of a space force to defend the nation and to protect space commerce and civil space exploration."

Space pirates.   oh dear.
