Glad to hear it. But you're sure the exception when it comes to the conservative rule.

    And if you love capitalism, go to China - they're MUCH more capitalist than we are. The same goes for most third-world nations - money talks, BS walks, and all that.
    Like I said, if Democrats would stop hating capitalism and loving dependency Id probably be a bigger democrat then you are. But I'm not going to vote for a bunch of bleeding hearts with small brains on policy; even if it means I'm siding with a party that I disagree with 60% of the time.

    Wow, three ridiculous rightwing memes in two sentences. How do you conservatives write so much without every deviating into a single thought.

    10 out of 15 are in the top 15 homicide rate states. Just the facts.
    Another example of how rightwingers have contempt for science: misuse of statistics to support their weirdo racist sociological theories.

    Note that the top 7 are all red states. See how easy it is to play this game.

    We're all still wondering that about you. Really, give the diatribes a rest. We get it, you love to hate and you've chosen a fictional grouping (eViL rightwing teaparty conservative conspiracy of luddities) to vent your hate upon. Like fish, semi-interesting when fresh, but with time begins to smell up the place.

    No, you didn't: you're just another pretentious tea party knownothing who can't spell.

    Re-read what I posted. In fact, being you have trouble reading, maybe you should read it three or four times. Maybe, just maybe it will sink in then.

    Since when is DC, New Mexico? That's a new twist, even for a liberal.

    Four of the top ten states don't meet whatever silly point you are trying to make to begin with. You did ignore that.

    Oh well. Practice your reading skills and better luck next time.
    When teapartiers talk about reading skills, it's always like hearing Palin talk about American history. A phantasmagoria of weird ideas and knownothingism.

    Exhibit A in the tea party screed of knownothingism. Plus a little historical delusion thrown in. That always spices up a weirdo rightwing meme.

    Re: Nearly 20 Percent Of Scientists Contemplate Moving Overseas Due In Part To Seques

    A few quick points:

    1. U.S. R&D accounts for a significantly smaller share of global R&D than it did a decade earlier: nsf.gov - Key Science and Engineering Indicators 2012 Digest - US National Science Foundation (NSF)
    2. R&D is investment that is crucial to innovation.
    3. Already, research has indicated that the rate of U.S. innovation is slowing.
    4. Slower innovation means reduced competitivenes relative to the rest of the world. That translates into a smaller economy and fewer jobs than might otherwise be the case.

    If the brain drain cited at the beginning of this thread materializes, and barriers to relocation overseas have probably never been lower, it will have an unmistakable and adverse long-term impact on the United States.

    At least they will still be paying US income taxes.
