    Adding to the mix of Rants and Giggles

    On Friday past, Jeff Flake, former embarrassment to the United States Senate from the (usually) Great State of Arizona, proved once again that anyone with a crayon can write an Op-Ed for the Washington Post.

    Flake, one-term blunder, chose to not run for re-election when his handlers realized that he couldn’t win re-election even for Street Sweeper. Sadly they realized it early in 2014, but by then he was already seated in the Senate.

    In his opinion, tossed right out there for all to ridicule, Flake comes out of obscurity to tell us he has the answer for saving “our” Grand Old Party (‘scuse me, Jeff? You might still call yourself a Republican, but you haven’t actually been one for a long, LONG, time,) by insisting that Republicans vote “country over party.”

    EX-Senator Flake, you cosmic waste of breathable air, the Republicans did just that when they voted, en masse,to resist the Democrat’s politically motivated impeachment effort; they voted FOR THE COUNTRY.

    Everybody’s gonna love the Space Force until the turf battles for missions and personnel start. Remember the fights the Army, Navy and Air Force had over nukes, missiles, heavy transport, etc.??

    ^ Yep, it’s been goin’ on since the USSF idea came up back in my day.
    Your examples can be generalized:
    • Every service already has an air force, a navy, an army, and a space force.
    • Heck, the Navy even has whole ‘nother service which has most of those things (at least the Marines are nice enough to let other services provide their space support).
