Well, of course! The U.S. has only existed since 1776.

Russians were doing it long before then. How do you think there got to be so many of 'em?

Sure as shootin' wasn't immigration.

Getting it up there is relatively easy. Getting back down in one piece is the hard part.

It is certainly time that space travel expands beyond the realm of government owned ships.

Yep, it's time for a move into that great sphere of cost-plus contracts!

It perpetually amazes me that some people are so stupid that they call a company with one customer, the government, for either their entire existence or for a product or service line "private enterprise." And yet these same people call the government paying private companies to build roads "the government building roads."

Weird.

Space X has reduced the cost of getting shit into space by quite a bit.

Lockheed Martin ain’t to happy with Musk and his return to earth booster rockets.

I'm not seeing a need for government involvement at all except for buying space on a ship just like they do with ocean going ships. ight be a tad early but it will come. Wither way it is still less expensive than having government employees doing the work.

Yup, no contractor has ever ripped off the government. Those $500 screw drivers are worth every penny.

Shit.....go ahead, I deserve it.

Yep like pipelines (opposite the Liberal trans mountain though) private companies build the pipeline and Energy companies pay for capacity to use it. Cheaper in the long run for installation and maintenance of the facility, and no liability if something goes wrong.

Nope, turns out that you recognized your peril at the last moment, and in a phenomenally athletic move, rescued yourself!

Well done!

$500 screwdrivers and $1500 toilet seats came in handy for bombing Baghdad without being seen on radar.

I'm sure theyll be handy again.

You're hilarious. You should head to the big city (Nanaimo) and do open mic night at the Cambie.

$400 0f that is kickbacks to get the contract. The rest just barely covers the cost of making the product and dealing with the paperwork.
