SPACE FORCE!? The motherfucker is starting SPACE FORCE!? Flint still doesn’t have clean water, Puerto Rico still doesn’t have power, and we’re starting FUCKING SPACE FORCE!?

Instead of a space force can we just get healthcare??

Money for medicare for all? NOPE.
Money to get clean water in Flint? NOPE.
Money for education? NOPE.
Money to stop global warming? NOPE.
Money for a “space force” to combat a nonexistent threat? You bet your sweet ass.

And that my friends is everything wrong with the US.

Here’s what I have to say about Trump’s Space Force:

He’s separating children from families and putting the children in prisons, cages and tents.

That’s the story. Just like the thousands of dead in Puerto Rico is the story. Fuck Space Force.

Of course, as author Belén Fernández recently argued, the U.S. government has consistently prioritized “the health of the arms industry over the health of the humans that are allegedly being defended from ubiquitous foreign nemeses, only to languish in sickness and poverty at home.”

She further posited that “Trump’s latest mission to convert outer space into a proper ‘war-fighting domain’ would seem to fit in rather nicely with mankind’s valiant quest to destroy itself.”
