Defense Budget Round-up

Now that the Virginia election is over and the enemedia is telling us the GOP is doomed (DOOMED! Hahaahaaa!), we can return to how Governor-elect Northam is going to fund his 4 counties (Arlington, Alexandria, Richmond and Norfolk).

First up: $700 billion for defense! The USAF, the perennial budget winner, fended off a new military service, the Space Corps. Now they have to deliver. SQUIRREL!

Better late than never, the Obama Space Policy (“Give it to the Russians, along with billions of other peoples’ cash”) is getting a new look. I did like one aspect of the Obama Space Policy: taking NASA and the USAF out of space and turning it over to commercial interests. Great Britain became great when the East India Company gave it an empire. The Royals, like NASA and the USAF, couldn’t look beyond a rose-colored mirror.

The Army, not to be outdone, is spearheading two initiatives that will change the conduct of warfare. Pinks & Greens! And, educated NCO! Doc Brown: prophet had the way of it: back to the future, baby!
