Space Force. 

"I am hereby directing the Department of Defense and Pentagon to immediately begin the process necessary to establish a space force as the sixth branch of the armed forces," Trump said during a meeting of the National Space Council.

"Our destiny beyond the Earth is not only a matter of national identity but a matter of national security," Trump said.

Man, and as part of my "going through the Bond movies" thing I have going on right now, I watched Moonraker just the other night, what with Drax's giant space fortress and that gunfight with laser guns and all that shit. MAKE ALL OF THAT HAPPEN!

I do not disagree with this (yet, don't know everything), and I am all for space exploration and scientific advancement...

 

However, can you imagine what this will do to the defense budget?

LOL. 

I saw this and just laughed my ass off. 

This is not happening without an act of of Congress to authorize the money. But, fuck it, details.

Oh yeah. He does it to distract and make waves. He has mentioned this several times and each time I just laugh. 

I find it funny and will believe it when the DOD starts to issue guidance  and requests in their budget requests. 

I'm sure the Air Force is like, "oh come on!"

Hey, it worked for Reagan!

But for goodness sake, PLEASE don't spend any more on defense.  I have no problem if they figure out how to divert a 1/4 of what they currently spend to reigniting our space program.  A lot of good, valuable tech came out of NASA - a rare, positive ROI for gubmit spending.

He’s only announcing this today to distract everyone from the border patrol criticisms.

If libs are good for one thing, it’s completely filling my Facebook timeline with merciless amounts of THE SAME FUCKING NEWS STORY over and over again. And then move on to the next one the next day.

Bill Maher and the other clowns are really pushing fear and paranoia that Trump is going to become a dictator and is going to cancel elections.  He had George Will on trying to educate him, and George Will was probably remembering why he ignored Maher's request to come on for 25 years.

So clearly we need to start teaching civics and the constitution again, and do a much better job of it.

LOL, it's almost the identical playbook to climate alarmism: "IF YOU DON'T STOP TRUMP NOW, IT MAY ALREADY BE TOO LATE!!!!!!!"

Even when boogie is not supposed to be rattled, he gets rattled.  


This will 100% not happen and if we were being realistic this would just be taken on by the AF most likely.

What are commonly referred to on here as "libtards" are really no different than many posters.  They are right wingers (by a margin of about 90%), they spend most threads slobbering over each other's comments, they illustrate confirmation bias at an elementary school level, and they insult those who disagree.

While I think most of us here would like the government to be more fiscally responsible and sensible, I'd say that most of us are socially liberal at the same time. I think where most of us scoff is the progressive/regressive agenda concerning culture. A few die hard righties and lefties, but for the most part, most of us are middle of the road IMO

He is a prime example of somebody who let Trump break his/her brain.  It's hilarious he doesn't see the irony in his post, when you consider the majority of his posts.
