The Republican Committee on Science
So I’ve been reading Science lately, and holy shit am I scared of what the Republicans are going to do to science. It’s really funny that they want to raise the defense budget to promote America’s position in the world, while cutting back on being the leaders in the field. Also that they would rather cut social programs than tax people, even while wanting a more moral America.
I hope Americans can get their heads out of their asses long enough to realize what failing to support the sciences–especially when it comes to improving quality of life and treating disease–means. On the other hand, we have the wonderful media to jack that up, too. :/
