    Therefore Space Force makes a lot of sense. In truth we already have a Space Force we just have never referred to it as such. It's probably time we started separating it from the other branches of military so it has a better focus.
    I've always liked the idea of space marines.

    We agree...yes they are already stealing....and now we want them to steal more, for our own good?

    I can't wait till Jesus comes back....Ive had it!
    If any of my views seem to be strange or new to you, it is to be hoped that you will not close your mind to them, but will emulate the noble Bereans, and not only read and study the chapters would discuss, but will also search the Scriptures to see whether these things be so.

    I think we all agree the government spends way too much. But that's another topic.

    Furthermore.... if an idea happens to be a wise expenditure don't dump it merely because you waste money elsewhere.

    I can't tell you how many books I've read with space marines in them, and that go into detail about how their marines originated with America's Marines.

    Because where do you think that money comes from? YOU AND ME! Theft is theft, and the government taking money from you and me to pay someone who isn't going to be grateful for it anyways is even worse. I'd much rather have my tax money go to the military budget.

    It would also fix our immigration problem, but that's a topic for another time that would derail the thread if discussed here.

    Wait a minute, you were fine with taxes if they were going to be used for space toys!

    Because it's well within the government's right to use my tax money (even though they tax far too much) for defence of the nation.

    As I've stated elsewhere (especially in my "An Advocation of Government" thread), the government has only two roles. Anything more than those two roles, and the government starts becoming inefficient.

    Those two roles are infrastructure, and criminal justice (which includes the military).

    Agree about not derailing the thread, I'll just say I absolutely and totally disagree with you and leave it at that.

    As Ian Malcolm said,

    "Yeah, but your scientists were so preoccupied with whether or not they could that they didn't stop to think if they should."
    If any of my views seem to be strange or new to you, it is to be hoped that you will not close your mind to them, but will emulate the noble Bereans, and not only read and study the chapters would discuss, but will also search the Scriptures to see whether these things be so.

    All I know right now is I am very uneasy about such a thing as this.

    I mean I can just see it, trying to blow Jesus out of the sky. (of course no one can do that)

    All in the name of "protecting the people."

    Yes it is an extreme example.

    And another fact of life is bad things happen even with the best of intentions.

    looking over this again, I didn't see an answer to my question.

    So if I say no to this and they use my money for this totally inappropriate stunt, then I can say they are stealing?
