Following the ratification of Sen. John Thune (R-S.D.) as chair of the Senate Commerce, Science and Transportation Committtee last week, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) was named chair of the Subcommittee on Space, Science and Competitiveness, where he will oversee NASA and science programs.


(Didn't find this in the search, and I can't believe it isn't here somewhere, so if it isn't please link me in the thread so I can comment there.)

I weep for our country, not because of partisan crap, but because this man is admittedly anti-science.

Doubt anything will change under him. All we ever hear from Nasa is "This could indicate microbial life." or "Scientists estimate within a decade humanity will finally go to the stars."

That's exactly why he was appointed. He'll be sure of following the conservative's script and quashing any research showing that the earth is more than 5,000 years old and Christ wasn't riding around on the back of a dinosaur.

NASA should refocus their efforts to find intelligent life in congress.

I see this as a Conservative trend back to Fundamentalist Christian doctrine in government in general.

Look at Teds background....especially his dad.

“The EPA is the single most agency for thwarting economic growth in this country.”


That's a pretty frightening line from your source.

How nuts.

It does bring this quote by Sinclair Lewis to mind imo....




"When fascism comes to America, it will be wrapped in the flag and carrying a cross."

Facism already came to America...it was wrapped in lies and sporting fake degrees from Columbia.

I don't see how Ted could do anything but make life better for Americans.

Exactly. You never know. We ended up with Obama and no one can say with 100% certainty where he was born....

Being born in another country didn't stop Obama!

Just saying!

I was going to make a veiled analogy to birthers supporting Ted Cruz, but I thought it was in bad taste because there still can't be people that believe that crap.

I wish I were more stunned than I am.

Well seeing as how Bush made life miserable for Americans then Obama made it worse, I can only see the next President going in one direction. Though by all means, continue to support a Republican or Democrat. I'm sure that will get the change you are looking for... *eyeroll*

Conservative and/or fundamentalist fear over a changing world that doesn't turn backwards to a time where you could ignore what made you uncomfortable gumming up the works? Noooo waaaaayyyy.
