When Trump created another military branch - the US Space Force - eyeballs in the Pentagon rolled.
What the hell do we need a space force for members throughout the military and Congress wondered?
There was never a satisfactory explanation other than Diaper Don likes military uniforms and he wanted to see new one's made up under his supervision.
The draft dodging cretin wanted to create his own military for reasons psychiatrists are still puzzling over.
The Space Force unveiled a rank structure Friday for it's officers and enlisted personnel, and guess what?
The rank structure is the same as the Air Force rank structure. Raise your hand if you're surprised.
The Space Force's stated mission is to defend machinery and commerce in the vastness of space.
It's also reasonable to suggest that the newly minted space force will be our first line of defense in the case of an alien invasion.
It's a nice thought, but in reality any advanced species that decides to visit our planet - for whatever reasons - is sure to vaporize our fledgling star fleet.
I'm just going to come out and say it...the idea of a Space Force is ridiculous and everyone but Trump knew it and knows it today.
I'd be embarrassed walking around with a uniform that had a patch that was ripped off from Star Trek uniforms.
The Space Force also recently revealed their latest motto; "Going Where Everyone Else Has Gone Before."
It's back-up motto is "Semper Supra," which means "Always Above."
Prior to that, under Trump, the motto was "Oderint dum metuant," which means "Let them hate so long as they fear."
I guess we're stuck with this new useless appendage to our military structure.
The new space force will be so busy dodging tons of space trash that I doubt they'll have much time to protect satellites.
