    It’s called NASA today, Regan called it Star Wars, no worries because aliens will see our president and determine there is no intelligent life here on earth and fly right on by.

    It’s a way to spend tons of money and grow government, exactly what the conservatives have been doing forever.

    Layers of bureaucracy help to funnel money. It's not like we do don't have close to 15k members of our armed service dedicated to something like this already, not counting NASA, but when you are two years into your presidency and still campaigning and holding rallies you absolutely need something to rile up the mouthbreathers, Space Force! It's nothing more than hot air, smoke and mirrors to detract from real pressing issues.

    I love that President Trump is living rent free in the White House and Germs head.

    Neil de Grasse Tyson begs to differ and it is a lot more than launching satellites. Take your hatred for Trump blinders off Germ.

    Gentlemen we can’t afford the Army Forces we have now.

    Get the budget balanced and then let’s talk about expanding the miltary to space.

    Sota take your head out of trumps ass so you can see better;)

    Don’t you have to spend money to save money? I think that’s how it works.

    I don't recall Germ being so deficit conscious before Trumps election. First he was throwing a hissy fit about space force then point out smart people who think it is a good idea then he deflects and is concerned about the deficit. It is called emotional maturity and in this case it is lacking.

    Listen if you don't understand the need to defend satellites and assets in space and run specialized missions as well you are naive. NASA is NOT a military organization not set up to operate in that manner.

    Sota I do understand. That being said, we are turning into one F'ed up world. Guarding crap in space is an extension of crazy human aggression. That is why O said goodness man. I'm naive bc I think we can do a whole lot better being better to one another.

    I agree but it is a different issue all together.

    I just want to fly all over the universe on someone elses' dime, saving the galaxy and and getting extraterrestrial strange.

    Pretty sure it would play out something like this:

    minus the bleach blond hair, b/c that'd be :dan:.
    I've put a lot of thought in this. Space Force is going to be great. Huuuuge.

    And that is why the Air Force has a group called Space Command. The navy also has a department with a similar mission. Now, just how is a person deployed in orbit going to defend against a satellite hunter missile? I am willing to bet that there is already a rapid response plan for an attack on our birds out there. One nuke detonated in orbit is going to make everyone blind until the new birds are launched.

    People who walk into the exit doors in crowded stores. Hello people. Enter and exit doors.

    I had entire families walking into me as I exited stores with crap in my hands and of course I usually move. After three to four times yesterday I stopped moving. The last family of 8 was great. I walked right at that and didn't concede one inch as I exited from the doors marked exit.

    Big box stores that have one entry point on the opposite side away from the cash registers; and one exit only at the register side -when 9x out of 10 what I need is over on the register side. I went in to the exit of Lowes the other day for something and this jack wagon coming out wanted to walk right at me.
