It will never fail to amaze me that America is willing to pay for an imaginary Space Force in an imaginary Space War but thinks free healthcare for all is absolute madness.

On the one hand, Space Force is a foolish idea that solves no actual problems, but on the other hand, it's a great way to transfer taxpayer money to defense contractors

When I hear the term "Space Force" I think of boys playing in a sandbox with their G.I. Joe's and model rocket ships, not a sober or coherent evaluation of the risks of military escalation in or on the final frontier.

Pence just doubled down on the need for a Space Force. This from a man who probably believes the Earth is just 6,000 years old. #ThatIsntHowYouScience

The White House says that the Space Force, a sixth branch of the U.S. military, will be created by 2020. https://t.co/GSPZlDGocZ

JFK: I want to send a man to the moon.
People: Yay! Yes!! Visionary!!!!
Trump: I want to protect America and our satellites from foreign attacks. So I’m starting Space Force.
People: He’s crazy! Mentally ill. Impeach him!!!!

Fifty years from now I hope there’s a zoo somewhere and all the Trumps are in a cage with all the Pences and people walk by and point at them and laugh and say “they’re the ones who tried to make a Space Force instead of making America a better place!”

Fuck a wall. Fuck a space force. If you really want to keep America safe, invest those funds in building the most advanced cyber security infrastructure this world has ever seen. Won't happen, though. Trump and Pence know they can't win without their little Russian daddy,

but seriously, I'm all for having a Space Force — right after we have a Healthcare For All Force, a Living Wage For All Force, an Equal Rights For All Force, a Rich Pay Their Fair Share Of Taxes Force and an All Nazis Can Fuck Straight The Fuck Out Of Our Government Force

Trump and Pence want $8 billion for the space force.
Meanwhile, Trump proposed $3.7 billion in cuts to education, $17 billion in cuts to food stamps, and $6.6 billion in cuts to housing pic.twitter.com/kURNN4GXZG

2020 when the Space Force is inevitably created and they’re recruiting:
Recruiter: “You should join the space force.”
“What do you do there?”
Recruiter: “Actually we’re not entirely sure, we just kind of opened and I think we’re going to put nukes on the moon? No idea.”

I don’t know how it’s possible, but Wilbur Ross has already embezzled $6.5 million from Space Force.

Mike Pence wants $8 billion for the Space Force. Trump previously requested $18 billion for the border wall. Because this is America. Where we'll spend $8 billion to possibly discover new beings who are different from us. And more than double that to keep them away from us.

Trump has plans for The Space Force.
— Cameron Grant (@coolghost101) August 9, 2018
If you're like me and think a Space Force that spends $8B while people are without healthcare, clean water, or roads & bridges that are safe – is ridiculous,
And/or that the GOP is trying to distract us,

Pres. Trump's dream of a new "Space Force" comes into focus as Pentagon, Vice Pres. Pence lay groundwork for potential new military service. @MarthaRaddatz reports. https://t.co/yYAc0lXqv9 pic.twitter.com/ZfadoX2Ejt

We've had the Air Force Space Command since 1982 and NASA since 1958, there is no need for the Space Force it's just another waste of tax payer's money.

Trump administration rightfully mocked for Pence’s military space force idea when our biggest threat is cyberspace and Russian interference. This is done deliberately. That SOB knows what he is doing!

Maybe before we create a sixth branch of the military to patrol space, we should take Cyber security a bit more seriously since it is more of a threat than lobbing nuclear warheads into space.

That's about 0.2% of the Pentagon's budget.
The Navy's newest aircraft carrier cost $13 billion.
No, this doesn't mean Space Force will be "cost-effective". It just means everybody thinks it's a joke. https://t.co/ipj2cXQbn0

The governments are creating a "Space Force Military" and are working with the largest private company that creates extremely high tech ?????????.
What was a prediciton I gave months ago?
A fake/staged alien invasion.
Does it still sound like a "tin hat" conspiracy?
— Moe Othman (@MrMoeOthman) August 9, 2018
The USA spends $600 billion a year on defence
So "Space Force" is nothing more than an expensive PR stunt – distraction some might say

Republicans complained about "wasting money on NASA and the shuttle" for decades. Now that the Space Force sounds militaristic it's a go. Pretty disturbing. Maybe we should use militarized language about healthcare.
Doctors offices could be disease strike teams.
