    All those E.T. hottie women, when they got with Kirk alone,
    never had to worry he would grab them by their neutral zone!
    They assented to his charms. He would then transport away,
    never having paid a credit, nor required an NDA.

    Note, 'Space Command' has existed since the 90s (it's an Air Force division), and was long seen as a betrayal by the USA for militarizing space. Trump's 'Space Force' is... well, no one knows.

    There's already a Space Command, its under the office of the Air Force. Tyson and Stephen spoke about t several episodes ago (see the Rover Episode). Why is this news, are they making the USSC its own thing like when the Air Force became its own thing after being under the office of the Army.

    It's actually the USAF Space Command, and we've had it for a long time. You can look it up.
    As Neil deGrasse Tyson pointed out, it does some of the space stuff we need that we might transfer to the _Space Force_ umbrella.
    Though, I think _Space Command_ sounds way cooler. Maybe Trump does too.

    Before commenting, please review how the United States military works the warfighting function and the organize, train, and equip function. The service (aka the US Space Force) provides the personnel and training while US Space Command does the actual warfighting. Has been in the US Code since the early 80s. Look up the Unified Command structure. I am not justifying the insanity of this administration, but educate yourselves on the issue before commenting.

    Exactly. All this news on the border wall hold out, the troop withdrawl, etc. are all detracting from the fact that the Trump charity organization was nothing but a sham. Trump does this all the time, when something personal comes up he makes some type of headline grabbing act to deflect our attention.
