Jonathan Foley let’s be honest you’re 10% scientist and 90% lefty statist

A real scientist wouldn’t be so hyperbolic as to use the phrase War on Science eight times in this ranty little article.

You cite no evidence that the current administration is against science. The most inspirational line of Trump’s inauguration speech was

“We stand at the birth of a new millennium, ready to unlock the mysteries of space, to free the earth from the miseries of disease and to harness the energies, industries and technologies of tomorrow. “

Many people in academia are deathly afraid that the federal government is going to cut their funding. That would be a good thing.

The free market always produces the most innovation. The government always perpetuates mediocrity. When was the last time that a great invention or cure for disease was produced by this grotesque marriage of academia and big government?

I pray Trump kills the funding to all these parasitical academic institutions. You guys would have to get real jobs. We’d see a true renaissance of science and discovery.

I took a quick gander at your other articles and the air is obviously very thin at the soaring heights where you’re perched there in your ivory tower… I hope you’ll come back down to reality and actually do some real science.
