Back in August, I was under the impression that the Space Force was just a crazy rumor cooked up by the editors of The Onion. Sadly, the idea is as serious as a heart attack, and it was still alive in November:
Here's a key sentence from the article listed above:
Mr. Trump, Vice President Mike Pence and other White House officials have been leading the charge, arguing that the U.S. cannot fall behind rivals such as China in preparing for space warfare.
This morning, the remaining members of Pink Floyd must be smiling, because the Chinese just landed a lunar rover on "the far side of the moon".
The Chinese claim that their space program is for peaceful purposes, but Trump doesn't believe them. How long do you think it will take before he starts tweeting about the Space Force again?
Since the Democrats took control of the House again this morning, I'm of the opinion that the Space Force is even less likely to get approved than the $5 billion that Trump wants for his wall. Incidentally, if you've got a good sense of humor, you may appreciate the fact that a woman named Charlotte Clymer has started a GoFundMe campaign for ladders, and it raised $127,000 in 4 days.
