But muh Blue Wave!!!

 

http://www.tampabay.com/florida-politics/buzz/2018/06/18/as-bill-nelson-fights-for-political-life-against-rick-scott-concerns-grow-among-democrats/

 

Democrats in Washington and Florida aren't laughing. They are increasingly nervous as Scott and Republican allies have unleashed a flood of money into TV and online ads — roughly $20 million so far, more than Nelson's 2012 opponent spent on the entire campaign — and maintain a superior organization that spares no opportunity.

 

...

 

Democrats generally have the advantage of running in a midterm election that historically favors the party not controlling the White House — incumbents like Nelson do especially well — and President Donald Trump continues to motivate the Democratic base. But the narrow path for Democrats to reclaim the Senate runs is challenged by states that Trump won, including Florida.

Nelson is suddenly one of the party's five most vulnerable members in the country, and the nation's third-largest state is by far the most expensive state of those five. A victory for Nelson will be extremely costly and could drain resources from Democrats elsewhere.

 

...

 

 

So the logical conclusion is that @Oedipus Wreckx-n-Effect will buy a broken down Sen. Nelson after the campaign, jab in a small block V8, and beef up the suspension and steering and take it out to the track.

God Emperor Trump announces creation of Space marines

 

http://thehill.com/policy/defense/392799-trump-directs-pentagon-to-create-space-force

 

“I’m hereby directing the Department of Defense and Pentagon to immediately begin the process necessary to establish a space force as the sixth branch of the armed forces. That’s a big statement. We are going to have the Air Force and we are going to have the Space Force, separate but equal.”

 

Thus fulfilling the promise to make memes great again.

Our master Dark Lord Putin created Air and Space force (VKS) as one powerfull fist, not separating them into 2. Before than we had separate Space forces.

CLARIFYING: Since a couple of people have responded in ways that make me think they read this as a moral statement, I'd like to clarify that the below is all game talk. I am talking about how this might affect the two sides in their political contest, not who's right and who's wrong.

 

Hrm, I would have thought Adams of all people would have seen the bad optics here.

Frankly, I think this is where the Democrats are politically strongest right now. It's not much, but it's... Something.

On a technical level, I agree that if you're stopping people at the border, and you're not holding children accountable for their parents' crimes, then yeah, separations will be a part of that. But the optics of crying children inside cages like you'd see at the dog shelter are unbelievably bad.

Setting aside that the photos of crying kids in cages are from years ago and that almost all of the kids in custody were either unaccompanied or came with strangers.

 

I will give Democrats and the media credit for how successful they have been at pushing such an open lie.

If you'd like to throw some knowledge my way, I wouldn't turn it down. Maybe you're right.

Strongly disagree.

Refugees and immigrants are sympathetic figures when they are few in number and when they come from unavoidable circumstances.

 

Anyone who hates Trump is going to wail about this, obviously.  But this approach unavoidably draws attention to the real conditions of the US/Mexico border.

 

Anyone who digs a little is going to find out that these people had children with them because they were trying to game the system.  And that this new policy was enacted because there was a seasonal increase in border-crossing, which had happened before because it's driven by the availability of agricultural work.

 

In short, any sort of concerted attention on the issue will get some number of people to look deeper into the situation.

 

I don't expect anyone with a greater understanding of the illegal immigration issue in the US to necessarily agree with Trump's policies on it, but I do expect them to regard the Democrat's framing of it as extremely incomplete and disingenuous.

Maybe. That seems like higher-order thinking than most people usually practice, to me.

How about the Media and Democrats making a big deal about a policy that has been in place for decades, the day the report about the biggest scandal in government history comes out, to keep said report out of the spotlight.  The Media and Democrats are lying and ginning this up to cover up the FBI Scandal, and the dumb ass media is playing along.  We all know, when you arrest someone, their kids get taken away, everywhere in the US. Granted they are given back to another legal guardian, if one is available, or go into the foster system. These kids, some of whom are being smuggled in by traffickers posing as family members, are only held for 20 to 40 days while a legal relative is looked for, and or they are handed over to DHS if they can't. They receive top-notch medical and dental care while in custody.  

 

No this is all about the left and the media covering up the FBI and DOJ trying to stop a validly elected candidate taking office. 

 

This is just the left using these kids, like they used the DACA kids, the school shooter kids and everyone else they've tried to use as a club against Trump.

I mean... I agree with all that, but I still think this looks bad for Trump and might affect his appeal. At least, it has a better chance than anything else the Democrats have.

Yeah, but they will fuck that up too, the Reps already have a law in the works, to keep families together, Ted Cruise I think is doing it, and of course just like on DACA, when offered a good deal they will refuse, and then Trump can spin it and smear the shit right back on the Dems like he did with DACA. 

 

The Pelosi bill is an abortion that would make it so no feds could separate kids from parents. On top of that, her nasty old hag ass jumping on this, as if it was the soul of a Baby she could consume to keep her unholy deal with the devil going, will hurt support for the issue. Hell, Hillary, who said ship the fucking kids back where they came from, is now on this to attack Trump.

Reading the previous 24 hours of comments, the clear answer is for God Emperor Trump to train these refugee kids as the cadre of his new Space Marine force.

Sounds like the original Janissaries

      Colonization Of The Solar System

       
      This thread is for discussing the colonization of the solar system, mainly focusing on Mars and the Moon since they are the most relevant. 
      Main topics include transportation, industry, agriculture, economics, civil engineering,  energy production and distribution, habitation, ethics and politics. 
       
       
       
       
      First order of business, our glories tech messiah Elon Musk has set his eyes on Mars:
      Reason stated? Because being a interplanetary species beats being a single planetary species. 
       
      How does he plan to do this?
      By sending two cargo ships by 2022 to Mars for surveying and building  basic infrastructure, then two years later in 2024 sending 4 ships, two cargo ships and two crewed ships to start the colonization. First thing would be to build fuel refineries and expanding infrastructure to support more ships, then starting to mine and build industry. 
       
      This could mark a new era in human history, a second colonization era, this time without the genocides. The economic potentials are incredible, a single asteroid could easily support the entire earths gold, silver and platinum production for a decade. The moon holds a lot of valuable Helium 3, which right now is worth 12 000 dollars per kilogram! Helium is a excellent material for nuclear reactors. 
       
       
       

       
       
      Speaking about the moon, several companies have set their eyes on the moon, and for good reason.
      In my opinion,  the moon has the possibility of becoming a mayor trade hub for the solar system.  Why is this? Simply put, the earth has a few pesky things called gravity, atmosphere and environmentalists. This makes launching rockets off the moon much cheaper. The moon could even have a space elevator with current technology!  If we consider Elon Musk's plan to travel to Mars, then the Moon should be able to supply cheaper fuel and spaceship parts to space, to then be sent to Mars. The Moon is also rich in minerals that have not sunk to the core yet, and also has a huge amount of rare earth metals, which demands are rapidly increasing. Simply put, the Moon would end up as a large exporter to both the earth and potentially Mars. Importing from earth would almost always be more expensive compared to a industrialized Moon. 
       
      Now how would we go about colonizing the moon? Honestly, in concept it is quite simple.When considering locations, the South pole seems like the best candidate. This is because of it's constant sun spots, which could give 24 hour solar power to the colony and give constant sunlight to plants without huge power usage. The south pole also contain dark spots which contains large amount of frozen water, which would be used to sustain the agriculture and to make rocket fuel. It is true that the equator has the largest amounts of Helium 3 and the best location for rocket launches. However, with the lack of constant sunlight and frequent solar winds and meteor impacts, makes to unsuited for initial colonization. If the SpaceX's BFR successes, then it would be the main means of transporting materials to the moon until infrastructure is properly developed. Later a heavy lifter would replace it when transporting goods to and from the lunar surface, and specialized cargo ship for trans portion between the Moon, Earth and Mars. A space elevator would reduce prices further in the future.  Most likely, a trade station would be set up in CIS lunar space and Earth orbit which would house large fuel tanks and be able to hold the cargo from  cargo ships and heavy lifters. Sun ports would be designated depending on their amount of sunlight. Year around sunlight spots would be dedicated to solar panels and agriculture. Varying sun spots would be used for storage, landing pads and in general everything. Dark spots would be designated to mining to extract its valuable water. Power production would be inistially almost purely solar, with some back up and smoothing out generators. Later nuclear reactors would take over, but serve as a secondary backup energy source. 
       
       
      The plan:
      If we can assume the BFR is a success, then we have roughly 150 ton of payload to work with per spaceship. The first spaceship would contain a satellite to survey colonization spot. Everything would be robotic at first. Several robots capable of building a LZ for future ships,  mining of the lunar surface for making solar panels for energy production, then mining and refinement for fuel for future expeditions. The lunar colony would be based underground, room and pillar mining would be used to cheaply create room that is also shielded from radiation and surface hazards. Copying the mighty tech priest, a second ship would come with people and more equipment. With this more large scale mining and ore refinement would be started. Eventually beginning to manufacturing their own goods. Routinely BFRs would supply the colony with special equipment like electronics, special minerals and advanced equipment and food until the agricultural sector can support the colony.  The colony would start to export Helium 3 and rocket fuel, as well as spacecraft parts and scientific materials. Eventually becoming self sustaining, it would stop importing food and equipment, manufacturing it all themselves to save costs. 
       
      I am not the best in agriculture, so if some knowledge people could teach us here about closed loop farming, or some way of cultivating the lunar soil. Feel free to do so.
       
       
      Mining:
      I found a article here about the composition of the lunar soil and the use for it's main components:

      In short, the moon has large amounts of oxygen, silicon, aluminum, calcium, iron, magnesium and titanium in it's soil.
      How do we refine them? By doing this.
       
      Aluminum could be used for most kinds of wiring to requiring high conductivity to density ratio. Meaning power lines, building cables and such. Aluminum is not very suited for building structures on the surface because of the varying temperatures causing it to expand and contract. Iron or steel is better suited here. Aluminum could however be used in underground structures where temperatures are more stable.  Aluminum would also most likely end up as the main lunar rocket fuel. Yes, aluminum as rocket fuel. Just look at things like ALICE, or Aluminum-oxygen. Aluminum-oxygen would probably win out since ALICE uses water, which would be prioritized for the BFRs, since I am pretty sure they are not multi-fuel. 
       More on aluminum rocket fuel here:

      Believe it or not, but calcium is actually a excellent conductor, about 12% better than copper. So why do we not use it on earth? Because it has a tendency to spontaneously combust in the atmosphere. In a vacuum however, this does not pose a problem. I does however need to be coated in a material so it does not deteriorate. This makes it suited for "outdoor" products and compact electrical systems like electric motors. Yes, a calcium electric motor.
