I Read the News Today, Oh Boy

I’ve been boycotting the news (kinda) since the Mueller report came out. Every time I peek to see what’s happening, it’s the same stuff. It’s some weird cycle of stupid at the moment.
1. Trump does something outrageous
2. The media forgets about yesterday’s outrageous thing he did and reports on this one.
3. Democrats subpoena someone in the Trump administration which is promptly ignored.
4. Democrats write strongly worded letter to Trump who doesn’t read anything anyway.
5. Media asks if Trump has gone too far this time.
Rinse, repeat.

Ted Cruz: We Need a Space Force to Defend Against Space Pirates

I’m trying not to post as much about politics here but some things are just too stupid to not post:

“Pirates threaten the open seas, and the same is possible in space,” he said during his opening statements. Since “the ancient Greeks first put to sea,” Cruz argued, we’ve recognized the “necessity to protect waterborne traffic and commerce from bad actors.”

And now, he says, it’s time for the Space Force to do the same in space.

Netanyahu Vows to Put a Bible on the Moon

Using science to put superstition on the moon. Yawn.

Noting that the lander carried a digital copy of the Bible, he announced, “that’s not enough…. We’re going to send the spacecraft again, and it’s very likely it will be carrying a small [printed] Bible. I want the Bible to land on the moon, because it is written [in Psalms 8:4], ‘When I behold Your heavens, the work of Your fingers, the moon and the stars which You have established.’ The State of Israel will reach the moon.”
