Antartica.
 
Want to go to Mars? Try living in Antarctica first: http://go.nasa.gov/2cXP70K

One of the best ways to prepare astronauts to cope with several months of isolation, confinement, and living in an extreme environment is by observing them for several months in cold and isolation of Antarctica.

Praise to David Brin who is #keepingtrack
 
Stunning hypocrisy! It starts with the lie that Democrats are bad at defense. Both Bushes - both - left the US Army in a shambles, with ZERO major units rated Fully Combat Ready, and W left nearly all reserve units so shattered that some spoke of disbanding them. In diametric contrast, by the end of both the Obama and Clinton Administrations the Army and reserves were repaired and all major units were rated FCR. All of them. And technological upgrades are taking place at an unparalleled rate.

Oh, and casualty rates and costs of war were far far lower across Obama/Clinton than both Bushes. Same with quagmires. See the stark difference as I laid it out here: http://davidbrin.blogspot.com/2012/10/how-democrats-and-republicans-wage-war.html

So Trump is flat out utterly and spectacularly lying. What else is new? Confederates do not care about facts, but assertions!

Now he wants to eliminate the sequester limits on military spending? Ho Ha? WHO PLACED THOSE LIMITS? The traitor-confederate party. The GOP.
Donald Trump laid out plans to jettison current defense-spending caps and embark on a military buildup that includes big outlays for ships, planes and troops, as well as bolstering the nation’s missile-defense systems.

The upper middle has doubled in size. #professionalmanagerial
A new report by the Urban Institute depicts a growing upper middle class. Is this growth at the expense of the middle class?
