Comment Politics and science do not mix (Score 1) 220

Obviously the "Scientists" wanted to get into the news with their little science lab project which had not much science involved with it.

Now these are the clowns getting money for research rather than manned spaceflight and the ignorant left are following right along because it is the era of Jon Stewart political thought. Make people laugh, ridicule the other side and they wont notice that our liberties are more in danger from the left than when the right was in charge. At least when the republicans were running things we had a news media that would take them to task for the decisions they made.

Instead of asking the present administration why they advocate warrantless location finding with gps enabled phones the cronies in the press are asking the administration what they think about some ignorant woman writing notes on her palm or why the president took 3 months longer deliberating on what kind of dog than his decision to provide more corporate welfare than any president before him.
