'Idiotic' 'Wasteful' 'Ridiculous': Describing Outerspace as Crowded and Dangerous, Mike Pence Uses His Serious Face to Make Case for Space Force

Jon Queally, staff writer

U.S. Vice President Mike Pence strapped on his most earnest "serious face" on Thursday as he made the argument about why the U.S. military must come to dominate outer space with its military – an idea that has been panned with a stream of derisive adjectives that could quite possibly stretch to Mars and back.

"What was once peaceful and uncontested is now crowded and adversarial," said Pence of space during his speech at the Pentagon.

I absolutely refuse to take anyone seriously who sleeps with their Mother.

d**do to make the case for war in space too. We bomb children in school buses. We bomb hospitals. We bomb weddings and always double tap to get the rescue effort unless they are white helmets. Onward xhristain solders marching as to war.

Pense you are such a dumb shit. We do not have a space effort. We no longer make rockets or engines to get into space. We buy them from Russia who now says they will stop selling them because of our sanctions. So good job Pence we are stuck on the ground without engines and those that can reach space can drop hammers on us or any old space junk and America which does not make anything anymore can run around screaming the sky is falling.

As long as Marvin the Martian lives, we desperately need a Space Farce!


#5

How can we have a Space Force when we have to bum a ride
from the Russians to get Americans to the ISS?


#6

Well here we are, 7.5 billion humans on a planet that might be able to support one billion at a reasonable level of living standard. We are headed toward 10 billion by 2050. Simple mathematics shows that we will be hundreds of billions at some point, and we are going to need a space force so that we can move to Mars and other unknown objects in the Universe. Since it is impossible for our hunter-gatherer primate brain to solve problems on Earth, we need a Space Force to force us into space. We can then terraform Mars since we can’t terraform Earth and we can make Mars safe for the Uber Capitalists. Mike Pence is a genius, he knows that the Lord wants us to populate the Universe. And he has a wonderful source of new space soldiers. He can draft all the unwanted children at birth. Just how is it that a nation of 300 billion hunter-gathers has appointed such genius level primates to represent them; but then we have had King George, Napoleon, Hitler and Genghis Kahn, what can we expect?

Are we living in a cartoon-----is this the 1950’s------will aliens be landing on the White House lawn??? The US wants to “dominate” space???NO! Where is the discussion as a society if we even want to go in this direction–the same could be said of driverless cars. But don’t be fooled this space shit is all about surveillance.


#8

Morally bankrupt idiocy.


#9

Jesus fucking Christ!!!
(some) one flew over the cuckoo’s nest. And, now, he is hovering over the White House lawn.


#10

We all know crooks, criminals and scam artists when we see them –
and Pence and Trump are at the top of the list —

Seems “god” has directed Pence to be a liar and thief.


#11

PSYCHOTICALLY STUPID. You can fill one missile with ball bearings, launch it into orbit, explode it, and take down everything up there now.


#12

Oh I’m sorry Mr. Pence, but I read that Netanyahu wants to build a base on the moon. Sorry-----we know how you defer to him.

Oh well, hey I have an idea, maybe Mr. Netanyahu will let The Donald name it…let’s see… hmmmm oh yes, that Gipper president, he loved the Star Wars idea----so let’s name it Moon Camp Ronald RAY GUN. : )


#13

taxpayer $ to private corporations - just imagine how slick the pipeline could get. Trump is already autoerotic on the topic. and the offshoots - endless vacuums from your pocket to theirs.


#14

“Space Force all the way!”

I’m for that, if “all the way” is a very, very, long way, and all of Space Force’s proponents, now known or to be known, go “All the way” with it.


#15

Our only chance is to leave a trail of $100 dollar bills to Daytona and shuffle the entire Trump Circus onto a probe to steal the oil from the Sand Negroes From Space!! It is soooooooooo incredibly stupid and god know how much money after 30 percent of corporate taxes were given back to the one percent and these illiterate psychopaths are demanding food stamp and Medicaid recipients now have to work to eat or see a doctor.
Dante said the hypocrites will toil in their own feces up to their eyes in the Second Gap of the Eight Circles of Hell. Dante was a funny guy! Take some shorts Republicans, it’s gonna be hot, sizzling! Live from the corner of Mo and Ron, Sand Negroes From Space are orbiting White America and taunting the dumbest crackers to ever suck an egg. Stay tuned. It can only get worse.


#16

The military are already in space spending vast amounts of money. Money thats secret and part of the black budget. All this does is put an official face on a special programme thats probably already happening.


#17

I thought we settled the issue of using space for star war games back in the '60s when our government first released a proposal to build a laser-based machine to shoot down other satellites in space. I am under the impression that this issue was taken up with the United Nations and all governments agreed that space belonged to everyone and was to be kept free of star war satellites…similar to Antarctica which is to be open to all nations where weapons of war are banned. At any rate, we need to honor the dictum that space is to be kept free of weapons of war.


#18

But HILLARY WOULD HAVE BEEN WORSE!!!


#21

Sooooo…this is yet another promise we’re breaking? When did we rescind our participation in the Space Treaty???
