Space Force? Seriously?
My grasp of reality is sometimes in doubt, but is our president serious about establishing a Space Force? Really? Space Force? Did no one tell him about Reagan’s defunct Star Wars proposal?
I laughed when I first heard him announce it. Then I read somewhere that our military leaders are actually drawing up some plans for it. I guess when the commander-in-chief (now there’s a scary thought!) says we’re going to do something, everybody else has to jump.
I also have a tenuous grasp of math and economics. But how can you make huge cuts in the taxes paid by our wealthiest citizens and corporations, and then turn right around and ask for billions or trillions to build a Space Force? Not to mention the still unfunded border wall.
Reduce the government’s income while at the same time demanding massive new expenditures? I can’t speak for others, but my budget sure doesn’t work that way.
