She doesn't look exactly thrilled about that state of affairs, either.

Of course, that might increase its popularity with other groups.

What's not to love about a complete body-covering white uniform that hides your face with just peep-holes while you threaten and blast people?!

Has anyone thought to take a bunch of old 50s/60s sci-fi/space movies, edit together a bunch of scenes with men in space suits/outer space, and show it to Trump. We can tell him "See? There is a real life documentary about your space force, with real live footage of your brave space force soldiers in action.

Trump is rather dumb, and he'd probably be too lazy to read anything telling him that the space force didn't exist. And he wouldn't believe anything printed in the mainstream media because its all "fake news".

How long has it been since he mentioned Space Force? A couple of weeks? Has he mentioned it since?

See? He's forgotten he said it already and moved on to the next opportunity to be a ****-stirrer as a distraction from being *********** lazy and not actually doing the job of president.

It's also called "successfully making great progress at standing still, and doing a full report on same."

Actually, I can see the Pentagon using this as yet another "project" to acquire taxpayer funds to fritter away on all that silly stuff they do like paying their soldiers, sailors and airmen, and ensuring they don't have cut-rate armour in their Humvees like in Iraq.

There was a comic book in which a government agency persuaded an anti-superhuman Congressman to approve funding to construct a super-prison on Mars. By an amazing coincidence, many of the prison's facilities could also double as advanced research labs during the construction process.

I really, really hope they get to have a catchy song. Something like (but impossible to be as awesome as)...

Beyond
The rim of the star-light
My love
Is wand’ring in star-flight
I know
He’ll find in star-clustered reaches
Love,
Strange love a star woman teaches.
I know
His journey ends never
His star trek
Will go on forever.
But tell him
While he wanders his starry sea
Remember, remember me.

Spaaaaace Force (pew... pew pew) may have just gotten a boost (sorry).

Fox News just **** a brick that a meteorite strike in Greenland last week, missing a cold war early warning installation by 43km (scared 'em I guess, but didn't Donnie say the Russians weren't targeting us anymore?)... was not announced/cried over/screamed about by the Air Force. Not sure either why they would or what they were supposed to do about it.
NASA, of course, announced it.
Now we wait and see.

As far as I know, Greenland is governed/owned by Denmark, not the USA. One of those peace-loving, one-payer health, commie countries in the EU. Fox should have been pleased.

How about;

A million suns shine down
But I see only one
When I think I'm over you
I find I've just begun
The years move faster than the days
There's no warmth in the light
How I miss those desert skies
Your cool touch in the night

And the other branches of the Armed Services don't like this very much.,,the Air Force in particular which sees it as a major invasion of their turf.

Forgot about another gem from that Daily Show piece...
(paraphrased)
"NASA isn't telling us the truth. SPACE FORCE would be his (Trump's) guys, so they'll tell us what's really going on."

Yeah LOL, wait... what, huh?
This ain't "JayWalking" with just the folk who recognize pics of Brittany Spears but not RB Ginsburg. This is much, much less amusing.

(Okay... the "cloud, uh computer" bit was funny. And the "logic" at the very end as well. )

Pence is trying a rather amusing diversionary tactic because Donny is circling the filthy drain of the Russia probe as the swamp drains...into the White House.

wiki. In 2008 Greenland's citizens approved the Greenlandic self-government referendum with a 75% vote in favor of a higher degree of independence.
