    - The goal of this project is to get off this god-forsaken rock.

    This is not a joke. I'm going to do the paperwork and hire an artist to make a logo.

    I am equally in favor for off-earth and augmented-reality initiatives

    both will allow me to continue hiding from the real world, so go nuts

    Rest assured, we will not be lining the wallets of directors with moon goo proceeds. You are, however, allowed to keep whatever loot you find, no matter how you acquired it!

    The space force will prob get down voted by the republicans and the opposition due to costs or some bs like that.
    I dont think the goverments these days like to build cool stuff anymore like the spaceshuttle.

    I would totally pay to fund a kickstarter-ish space project just for lolz and awesome.
    Hack the planet kind of awesome, I think in the end its about the people coming teaming up and pooling their resources.
    Sadly im not a stockbroker millionare or so but i would easily sacrifice a 100 dollars or so to build a solar system coms network or throw out the building blocks for a drones and 3d printers colony on mars or some crazy stuff like that.

    Worthwhile projects, but we need to do lots of research before that can happen. That's what my org would be for: doing research and giving grants to further our ability to travel the cosmos. Maybe I should form it as a foundation?

    In any case, I'll take its discussion to the NASA thread.

    Chilling outlook of what may happen/direction of the US under the Orange and his buddies especially after Sessions used the scriptures to justify children separation. The same scriptures were used to justify slavery back then, how fucking crazy are those guys.
    Long read but worth it:

    When i read it, The Handmaiden's Tale instantly crossed my mind and how close the US is becoming what should be fiction.

    I just got back
    From the border
    And what I saw
    Made me know for sure
    We're out of order

    I had a dream
    About New Orleans
    The Government cared
    Fixed the damage there
    Down in New Orleans

    If you're dumb
    There's a life for livin'
    But the people there
    They just don't care
    Livin' their life
    Like a millionaire
    Down on the border

    You'll never deal
    With old Iran
    Israel frowned
    Tore the treaty down
    In old Iran

    Instead I will go
    To Singapore
    The people there
    Don't mock your hair
    In Singapore

    On their streets
    There's a life of plenty
    But they'll never know
    About the freedom show
    They're livin'
    In darkness years ago
    Down on the border

    They built a wall at the border
    Not to keep us out
    But to leave no doubt
    They're out of order, hey

    And all the people
    Who are trapped within
    Serve to show
    Just how far we'll go
    And how dumb we've been

    At the top
    Life looks so easy
    But they'll never know
    What they'll never know
    They're much too busy
    Countin' all their dough
    From the border
    From the border

    Down on the border
    Down on the border
    Down on the border
    Down on the border
    Down on the border
    Down on the border
    Down on the border

    They should hurry........at the speed the U.S. is apparently becoming Nazi Germany Meets the Spanish Inquisition Meets the Handmaids Tale Meets Dystopian Phillip K. Dick Dark Future, they'll clearly need to protect themselves from the U.S. before the inevitable holy fascist cyberpunk capitalist crusader invasion.

    Separation of a child from a parent is child abuse.

    Yeah there's clearly nothing wrong with the current hard right turn being taken by America because it isn't affecting you.

    I know the first thing that comes to mind when discussing the hard topic of enforcement policy for the treatment of innocent undocumented potential American asylum seekers, is to think about how amazing and awesome a hand-selected group of nine legal immigrants are.

    Every one of those people down at the border could (and probably will) be our next Great American. How can Trump not know this and welcome them in with open arms?

    Not sure what you mean, clearly there is everything wrong with the U.S. these days, as our government is taken over by the very hard far right Nazi-Christian-Racist-Hate Mongers of the far right immigrant-hating child abusing Nazi right.

    These Trumpcentration Camps must be stopped.
