Trump wants a Space Force, but Pentagon has different idea

President Donald Trump wants a Space Force, a new military service he says is needed to ensure American dominance in space. But the idea is gaining little traction at the Pentagon, where the president's defense chief, Jim Mattis, says it would add burdensome bureaucracy and unwanted costs.

Maybe if we got rid of some cemetaries and golf courses, we could turn them into OPEN Space, like for trees and sancuaries for abandoned animals, give back some of that land we took from the animals, and give kids and adults parks to play or walk or ride bikes in, take in some fresh air and get off them space phones.

The planet Arus has no moon but if they are strong warriors, they may also take up arms against Emperor Daibazaal.

He should have no trouble recruiting for his 'space force' since he has so many space cadets in the white house.

Yeah why waste money on junk like defense against EMP when so many Democrats need a handout.

The United States already has EMP capabilities. So really, the United States is the threat.

Second, its the Democrats who usually study the hard stuff like science. So a space force would be a big employer of all those Democrats who have the unmitigated gall to study and apply science.

And since this Administration isnít too keen on science, seems like a strange contradiction to Trumpís Evangelical base of supporters.

The only science Democrats practice is junk science.

JFK would spit on you and he was the last great Democrat president.

What EMP defense do the nasty Americans have Mr. Science Guy?

An exploration into your head would reveal Footless Halls of Air.

I loved JFK and everything he stood for, everything he said, and sacrificed my youth in a jungle hellhole because he said ask not what your country can do for you.

A few thousand million taxpayers dollar's.
The money NASA spends on experiments with needless things could build several border walls.
