Today the time-travelling android, Mike Pence, gave a press conference outlining the federal governments plan to implement the long-awaited Space Force. And to many people behest, it's happening a whole lot sooner than many expected.
By 2020, Pence said the government will start allocating resources and money to build the world's very first Space Force. I mean, it couldn't be too hard to train 50,000 18 year-olds how to be astronauts right? Regardless of your opinions on the matter or war in general, having a Space Force is undoubtedly cool and heck you never know we might have to face space ISIS one day.

Space Force all the way!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) August 9, 2018
It will never fail to amaze me that America is willing to pay for an imaginary Space Force in an imaginary Space War but thinks free healthcare for all is absolute madness.— Emma Kennedy (@EmmaKennedy) August 9, 2018
On the one hand, Space Force is a foolish idea that solves no actual problems, but on the other hand, it's a great way to transfer taxpayer money to defense contractors— Spencer Ackerman (@attackerman) August 9, 2018

Before we add more branches like the Space Force, can we fix the Department of Veterans Affairs?— Red T Raccoon (@RedTRaccoon) August 9, 2018
