lmao wut? How is the Crew Dragon more expensive at $55 million versus the $80+ mil the Russians were charging? Also remember (because Rogozin conveniently didn't) that the market price is not the same as the internal costs. The Crew Dragon is almost definitely cheaper than the Soyuz for the simple reason that it is reusable.
Lastly, the Dragon spacecraft comes with a reusable rocket. The Soyuz is less a Kalashnikov and more of a Mosin Nagant.
It's called the Secret Service because it was the only law enforcement agency at the time of its creation not to have a pre-defined role. The naming was intentionally vague to allow the agency the bureaucratic mandate to do whatever Congress needed it to do without having to create a dozen individually defined agencies. This is why they're in charge of things as diverse as dignitary protection and financial crimes. It was never actually meant to be a secret of any kind.
In case you were curious like I was.
How is that sexist? I'm pretty sure all of NASA's female astronauts think they're just as qualified to go to the Moon as their male colleagues. Might as well cross "first female on the Moon" off the milestone list since we have no other real mission goals except to feel good about American potential again.
Though I agree with your sardonic sentiment, the Second Amendment does clearly state "regulated militia" so yes, the FAA could in fact ban these in the same way you can't own a nuclear bomb or automatic firearms made after 1986. So long as you don't ban all firearms in general or create regulations that essentially prevents individuals from owning firearms you're allowed to regulate to a largely undefined and mercurial extent (2008's DC vs. Heller) but IANAL.

Read: a worthless credit monitoring service you already got for free from any number of data breaches you've been previously exposed to. The lawyers, regulators, and auditors all get their hush money whilst society moves on to the next data breach learning nothing.
Much like our other daily occurrence: mass shootings.
What's high end about the Pixel 2 other than the camera? No headphone jack, the same Qualcomm processor, the same NAND memory, the same Gorilla Glass, the same LTE modem, and the same OS as every other Android phone. The Nexus 5 had high end specs for midrange price. It was the whole point of the Nexus line. The corners were cut with build quality -- and the build quality of the Pixel 2 is a joke (awful screen, terrible industrial design, QA issues). So is the Pixel 2's camera worth several hundred more than the exact same phone made in China minus the imaging processing?
If you kept reading the article you'd come out less like a moron.
Wtf? No, that just creates more urgency that THE NUKE WE TALKED ABOUT ON THE NEWS IS FINALLY HERE AND IT'S LANDING NOW SEEK SHELTER THIS IS NOT A DRILL. Now imagine that endlessly repeating, hijacking everyone's phones with loud sounds and vibrations for 38 agonizing minutes. That'll solve the panic!
