Strategic Future of the United States

Given the rapid and continuing evolution of orbital rockets and space craft, it is clear that the United States needs to take steps to ensure the freedom of near-Earth space and to protect the property and territory of the United States.

The first fact that must be dealt with is: "He who controls the orbitals, controls the planet." Any entity that controls the orbitals of a planet may prevent anyone else from reaching while using KEWs to destroy their surface assets and rail guns to destroy any assets in orbitThe ability to do this exists at this moment.

The first thing you need is a cheap, effective and reliable rocket boosterReusability is a cherry on topThe Falcon 9 from Space X is the obvious answerNo development costs...the production line is up and running.

Next you need an orbital craftMy suggestion would be the Dreamchaser, by Sierra NevadaThe X-37 by Boeing would work as wellUse them as dronesThe X-37 has already proven it can stay in space for extended periods of timeArm them with electromagnetic railguns and kinetic energy weaponsI believe the Navy has already done the groundwork on the railguns, and the Air Force has several weapons that could easily be converted to KEW dispensers.

This fleet would allow us to retire our entire strategic forceOrbital KEWs are better in every way, including much cleanerIt would allow us to project force world wide without using expensive targets like our CVNsOur Navy could be converted to commerce and coastal protectionThe Air Force would concentrate on air space control and ground support(You could probably even give it back to the Army, like the Navy and marines relationship)

The fleet would allow us to protect our orbital assets and those of our alliesIt is well established that the Chinese are developing anti-satellite capabilities.

Lastly it would allow us to protect the United States from attack from orbitThere is little doubt that if Russia or China possessed to capabilities today that we do, they would be seeking to seize control of the orbitals, and prevent anyone else from developing a similar ability.

Judicial Review

The creation of judicial review was a total scam by Marshall.

Marshall was the Secretary of State under Adams from June 30, 1800 until March 4, 1801 when the Jefferson administration took office.

Marshall was approved by the Senate to be the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court on January 27, 1801He began acting as the Chief Justice on February 4, 1801.

So for a month he was both the Secretary of State and the Chief Justice.

During this month Marbury was appointed as a Justice of the Peace for the District of ColumbiaIt was Marshall's job as Secretary of State to deliver Marbury's commission to him...but somehow he forgot to do so, and Madison refused to do so when he replaced Marshall as Secretary of State.

Thus the controversy that led to the case of Marbury V Madison which allowed Marshall to create judicial review in such a way that no one would challenge him, was created by Marshall (on purpose?) while he was simultaneously Chief Justice and Secretary of State.

Could you imagine this happening today?

How to Improve Life for Black People in America

Part of my campaign platform if I was running for president:

1) Change the welfare laws to reward families with both parents instead of punishing them.

2) School choice...vouchers and charter schoolsMajor emphasis on vocational tech rather than "everyone will go to college".

3) Restore the role of faith...reach out to Black churches and have them do outreach in the innercitiesCreate a modified version of the Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts (and brownies and Girl Scouts) that focuses on morals and urban rather than rural skillsGet companies to fund this rather than pay off Sharpton, Jackson et al.

4) Push back against the thug culture that is glorified by popular mediaDare to be uncool.

5) End illegal immigration, and encourage illegal aliens to self deport, by making it impossible to work, and difficult to livetax any remittances to Mexico at a rate of 25% increase that by 10% every five years.We have no obligation towards illegal immigrants, legal or moralI would propose changing our immigration and citizenship laws to mirror Mexico's....not because I would actually do it, but to put the hypocrisy of Mexico in the open.

6) Teach our children restraint, self discipline and delayed gratificationProtect the lives of the unborn, and restrict abortion to the small number of cases in which the woman's life truly is at physical risk.

7) Get the police out of their cars and walking a beatMore local police sub stations.

Star Trek - The Original Series Season 1 Episode 1: The Man Trap

Star date 1513.1

They use the transporter right away. The sacrificial red shirt is actually wearing a blue shirt. McCoy's first "He's dead Jim", only I didn't hear the "he's". Uhura flirting with Spock. Pistol style phasers. Salt monster who shape shifts.

Star date 1513.4

Another 2 sacrificial red shirts..only one's wearing a blue shirt and the other a gold shirt We get a "He's dead", no 'Jim" this time. Hmm...why couldn't they tell one of them was an alien when they beamed back up? The first appearances of Yeoman Rand and Sulu. Another dead guy, this one on the ship and wearing some weird uniform.

Star date 1513.8

They're using the communicators like flip phones. Apparently something happens between now and star date 1513 that wipes out the buffalo. First mention of warp speed.

2 "he's dead Jim"s (sort of)

4 dead crewmen

Richard Nixon

Could someone remind me again why the Democrats hate Nixon so much, and why he was so evil? Hell if he had a "D" after his name instead of an "R", the Democrats would be trying to get his face on Mt. Rushmore.

Nixon normalized relations with Communist China. Surely the Democrats were/are happy about that.

Nixon ended the Vietnam War and the draft. Surely the Democrats were/are happy about that.

Nixon began detente with the Soviet Union, and signed the first strategic arms limitation treaty with them. Surely the Democrats were/are happy about that.

Nixon imposed wage and price controls on the U.S. economy. Surely the Democrats were/are happy about that.

Nixon took us off the gold standard. Surely the Democrats were/are happy about that.

Nixon created the Environmental Protection Agency. Surely the Democrats were/are happy about that.
