I get that the US wants to protect their satellites and I can understand that there's historically been creative flourish when it comes to naming said agencies/weapons/plans.
But I keep picturing battles in space like in Moonraker when I hear these ridiculous titles. And Pence delivers speeches on the subject like some B-grade actor from Mars Attacks.
We all verped in our mouths when Homeland Security was formed.
And why in the hell would anyone assign a name like warp speed to vaccine development, it gives the mouth breathing psycho anti vaxxers one more thing to drool over.
We live in weird fucking times.
