Basic research is no good for the general public

Who knew that the majority of the funding for research comes from earmarks?  I had no idea.  This is the same speech where she outlined the reallocation of funds to help special needs children – like her own.  Not that I blame her for wanting to help her family and use her position to do that, but I wish she knew there is a ton of research going on in the fruit fly that is aimed at autism.

  1. I also wanted to point out how Biden is just as much of a tool as Palin. Biden claims to have Jesus in his corner when it comes to raising taxes on those that make over 250k to spread the wealth. He calls raising taxes on the rich as “patriotic” and he goes onto say, “Catholic social doctrine as I was taught it is, you take care of people who need the help the most.”

    I would also like to point out that most theologians have stated that biblical taxes were around 10%… not the nearly 40% that Obama-Biden want to raise it to.
