"Vital For Possibility of Earth-like Alien Life"
A lot of assumptions there.
Semantics. The Korean War was not a "police action." Neither was the Vietnam War. Funny how both of those have "war" in the name. Both, BTW, had congressional approval.
The implication of the statement: "US wars with Congressional approval since 1945: 0" is false by the common sense understanding of the word "war". That it is defensible only by a technical legal definition of "war" that does not, in fact, include real, actual wars means that such defenses are picking nits to win debate class, not proffering an actual point.
If you want to talk about whether formal declarations of war should precede any military action, that's a different discussion. The GP intimated that all US military conflicts were done unilaterally by the executive, without consultation of the legislature, and that is demonstrably false.
13, actually. But please, continue with your rant.
Does your webmaster do all your coding, as well?
I think we can squeeze one more "way too high" reply. Any takers?
Send him truckloads of unsold "Panama" single cassettes.
Back then, though, the drop-dead date was usually the modern retirement age; so yeah, it could be pushed back a little bit.
They'll never pass up an opportunity to squeeze more money to fund pet projects back home. Hell, they're already talking about tapping the untouched potential of my 401(k).
In laymen's terms, they've found a way to upding the samoflanges by a full quarter millithingy while preserving the quantum resonance of the flux capacitor. Theoretically this could mean you get an extra bar on your WLAN while sitting in the dining room. Could be the biggest thing since token rings.
You're not giving us enough credit. We pioneered the nuclear technology that enables these craft to run for decades, and we've been improving that tech ever since. For instance, New Horizons runs on a third of the plutonium of Cassini-Huygens. We got a jump-start in rocketry, yes. All great men stand on the shoulders of giants. Our advances in computing and nuclear power are themselves a giant the rest of the world's space programs may stand on.

Dude. I don't wanna see what happens when one of those guys gets steamrolled by 300 pound refrigerator in a jetpack. Because that's what it's going to be like.
Ok, I lied; I do want to see what happens.
