What the Trump Defense Budget Gets Wrong About the Future of War

The massive 2021 Department of Defense budget that the White House sent to Congress clocks in at $740.5 billion, with $705.4 billion earmarked for the Pentagon – the remainder to the Department of Energy and other government agencies for national security projects. As always, the preparation of the request to Congress was a long and tortuous project, spearheaded by the Secretary of Defense and his team through an interminable series of reviews. Each of the services fought hard for its share...

Another new baker

Another new baker Submitted by RedT on February 11, 2020 - 6:12am. Do not consider myself to be anywhere near a baker, but one who loves sourdough bread. I've always enjoyed the tang and texture of San Francisco sourdough bread. There is one store here in our neighborhood that has sourdough bread, however the price has slowly crept up to $4 for a 14-oz loaf! This old timer felt that price was too much, so set about making his own. As a retired aircraft mechanic, I had a lot to...

White House requests $15 billion to establish Space Force

The Space Force will be taking one giant leap towards reality if the Department of Defense’s proposed budget and operations go through. $15 billion is requested, which would fund a number of missions and help establish the more than 10,000 personnel expected to join the new military branch over the next year. Estimates for how much it would cost to really establish the Space Force have varied widely, due in some part to the original haziness of the vision, but also because even had that vision b...
