Age Of Ignorance

Two posts by Jonathan Adler are worth noting. The first points out that there is nothing especially “Republican” about the supposed “Republican war on science”; Democrats are just as willing–if not more so–to wage war on science as well. Of course, we were assured during the Bush Administration that only Republicans hate scientists and that the supposed persecution of science would end with the advent of a Democratic President. So much for those dreams.

Add to the Democratic war on science the fact that bills don’t get read before they get voted on, and it will come as no surprise that bad legislation gets passed.

Need I mention that there is nothing “reality-based” about any of these shenanigans?
