GOP: the party of ignorance.

Yeah, dumbasses - its much better to let oil company leaders advise the EPA than actual scientists.

The stupidity of the ultra-conservative movement in 2015 is staggering.  But remember, its the "libtards" that are a DISEASE.   :uhh

Nice job linking an article from 4 months ago that credits Salon and ThinkProgress as it's sources.

The House (no matter the majority party) always passes stupid shit like this.  It then dies in the Senate (whether the same party is in control there or not) before it has a chance of getting to the President's desk.

The assumption in that article (and that SnakeEyes is taking)  is that EPA and these scientists are some kind of kick assed brainiacs without any political objectives.

Logical Fallacy:  Appeal to Authority.
False Premise:  Republicans are against science.
Childish Subject Title:  Check.

Covers just about everything ever about a snakepoat.  Missed you son.

Now..we have our differences... I would never nominate you tard of the year.   Believe it or not.


But as they say... "If the elections were held today..."

Of course scientists have political objectives.  And the point is they are preferable to YOUR political objectives because they are actually based on falsifiable data.

It's sad that in the year 2015 that this even needs to be explained.

Scientists aren't supposed to have political objectives.  They are supposed to be all Sciency.

You don't know my political objectives.     Hell you don't even know your own party's political objective.
Hell you don't know the political objective of this bill.   You got fooled by the shiny thing.

Strawman, Check.
False premise, check.

What falsifiable data are you talking about?

Sure they would.  Their objective would be for American policy to be geared towards what is scientifically verifiable.  The fact that anyone would consider that "politically motivated" to base our policies on facts shows how stupid we are as a nation.

No.  Their data is based on whatever will get their grant renewed.
