    Has anyone considered these are the 20 percent of "scientists" who are not good enough in their fields to get the grants the other 80 percent are getting? My neice is an archaeologist and she seems to have no problem getting grant money.

    In the USC - what does this mean? Does it say Uncle Sam can take the ideas the scientists came up with?

    But you are right of course, I would be happy to cut the food stamps program and restrict the qualifications for the disability program in order to pay these scientists. How are you always so smart?

    The right wing's war on intellects is coming full circle.

    All of the innovators are leaving.

    They will be better off in the end. The place is a dead-zone.

    The innovators aren't the ones getting grant money - venture capitalists got them covered big time.

    My point is that the U.S. used to be the bastion of science and technology. Now we are alienating the very lifeblood that immigrated here to build our nation.

    The hatred for intellectuals is growing sharply.
