Contrary to what's written here, saying there's no problem when in deed it very well could be a problem in the near future and should definitely be addressed. The administration is also consideringinvoking a 1950 law used in war time to nationalize industries in the name of national security, according to multiple officials familiar with the deliberations.

the agency needs to evolve and embrace the options outside the gate instead of the not invented here mentality dictating in house for everything
If the Trump-Pence team pushes it, Falcon Heavy rockets could have more than 100 launches through 2024. The New Glenn, which will lift almost as much as the Falcon Heavy and will be rated to carry humans from Day One, could add another 20 flights between 2020 and 2024.

Together, these approximately 120 heavy commercial flights would lift as much payload as 60 of NASA’s Space Launch System (SLS) flights. However, there will be at most four SLS flights by end of 2024, according to current plans. Each reusable commercial flight will also cost less than $100 million, while SLS flights will cost $700 million to $1 billion per launch.
Even 4 SLS by 2024 is probably overly optimistic

Accidental Art -- Fort Collins, Colorado
"In every landscape reside jewels of abstract art waiting to be discovered."
-- Melissa Brown

Dew droplets on a tiny spiderweb on a cool, foggy morning in northern Colorado... I thought this looked like some sort of magical fairy harp. :-)

The cruelest place on earth

The Danakil Depression (aka “The cruelest place on earth”) sits deep in the northern deserts of Ethiopia, and averages the hottest place on the planet. Venturing here is extremely difficult and quite dangerous, requiring multiple 4WDs (in case one fails) and a convoy of armed Militia for protection. Those who brave the harsh conditions are rewarded with a landscape that looks more like Mars, than Earth…

What Caused Trump the Politician?

You can blame many organizations, people and trends for helping to create President Trump. But one, key factor is the "Too Big to Jail" lack of accountability for business crimes.

Trump was fined -- twice- for laundering dirty money. $477,700 first, then $10 Million for violations that went on for over a decade. Yet despite the repeated crimes no one at the Trump Organization was charged. That's business as usual for the government in dealing with financial crimes. And the result is that committing crimes is profitable, since the fines are less than the income, they're simply a cost of doing business. It's as if police saw a getaway car for a bank robbery and gave the car a parking ticket.

I won't list all the crimes that Trump Organization has been involved in. The list would be too long this kind of post. But if criminal charges had been leveled against the main perpetrator, America wouldn't be where it is today.
