I don’t care who comes out on top as long as it is the states and not THE STATE.

We’re not all crybabies up here OB! And Pube, before that we were the United STATES,as in separate NATIONS .This is what is meant by “states rights”and a “republic”. Using that logic,which is actually in the constitution by the way, it would be the north “central federal gov’t” that was treasonous to the costitutional rights of the SEPARATE STATES. We are now one state with no real identity at all and nothing real to unite on.
Rockets are built in-house in Hawthorne and the supplier base includes almost all of the continental US. They're building a family of rockets from the ground up with a pretty fast development cycle so it's disheartening but not altogether too surprising they're running into failures.
I'm a fan of SpaceX if for nothing else than that they kicked United Launch Alliance (ULA) in the butt to get their act together. ULA is a joint venture between Lockheed Martin and Boeing, two of the biggest names in defense AND in aerospace independent of defense, and they've been sitting on their butts without an inch of innovation, leaving national security payloads dependent on Russian rocket engines. And now, ULA is pushing for a change in the laws to allow the purchase of a few more Russian engines to be able to conduct launches until about 2020 to guarantee a stream of revenue in order to fund development of their Vulcan rocket. What BS. I think Lockheed and Boeing can find a little spare change to cover the gas to get there.
Doing fine, son, until you let your emotions get the better of you. Do a bit more research. National Security Payloads are mostly what we referred to th the "Business" as Battlestar Galacticas are launched with the ULA Delta IV. As for Boeing and LockMart "finding money for the gas" They and their stockholders aren't in business to subsidise the US government.
Never thought I would see the day I would be defending Boeing and LockMart!
Actually possible to trace US history of blowing up rockets back to end of WWII. We ended up with the politicians from the German V2 program while the USSR captured the engineers.
I was definitely posting whilst upset. I just about lost it when I found out that ULA asked for a change in the law because they didn't have a guaranteed revenue without the RD-180's, which I thought was rich. I wouldn't ask for free rockets, but they can afford to develop the Vulcan. I don't blame them for a logical business decision, but I'm also not happy about the tax dollars they're so good at getting.
I've defended the F-35 before. It's defensible in some or even many areas, but I hate defending that thing. I think I may know how you feel.

That would be most repubs if he gets the nomination. We really need a conservative party to go against the progs.

Are American flag shirts somehow more dangerous than other shirts? That argument is bunk.

I think it’s a great idea… To be included in the convention of states along with term limits and tax reform etc.
