    Yep,

    We would be better off pulling out of the middle east and funding science and technology. Our military power is only because of our advantage.

    End of story.

    China is catching up.

    The libertarians do love their false equivalence fallacies and crazy strawmen. It's how they shill for the GOP while pretending they're not shilling for the GOP.

    Tell us, are the Democrats casting out anyone who isn't an antivaxxer, like the Republicans are casting out anyone who isn't a denialist? Yeah, the two sides are exactly alike.

    Government should not be paying for science, but if they do, government should own the patents that come out of the research.

    Well done --- as usual by the Reason staff.. I popped some GMO popcorn into my nuclear powered microwave to enjoy while I watched this..

    Isn't it also the progressive left that has the hots for such frauds as homeopathic remedies and crystal worship???

    We will fund science and technology as long as we wish to have the number one military on this planet.

    I love believers like Bloomberg. I heard his diatribe about climate change and hurricanes and I still haven't stopped laughing.
