    Knownothingism is the goal of conservatism and science is a threat to that.
    They are responding snarkily to a snarky OP. I doubt most of them are serious.

    Scientists and medical researchers are feckless welfare queens in teapartybizarroworld. Thanks for deviating into an honest post.
    What are you talking about? We should take from the welfare queens to pay the producers of innovation. I completely wholeheartedly agree with you.

    Just so you know, Currie, Edison and Ford were all working with materials that could be purchased at local mom and pop stores in the 19th century. Try getting your hands on what scientists use in a lab today at 19th century prices. Science is extremely expensive today. An MRI machine can set you back a cool 150K. A seismograph? $6-7K. A balancing machine? $10K. Yeah, you go on believing that 19th century scientists could have carried out their work at today's prices.

    What are you talking about? I just called them producers of innovation. Why do you keep letting your love of welfare queens get in the way of funding the vital research that has kept this country at the forefront of innovation?

    One of the elements of conservatism is hatred of education and intellectuals in particular. Thinking people are a threat to tea party ideology.
    Conservatives are against education, sense when, it is the democrats that are against education and allow the no teach teacher unions teach our kids into stupidly. Every hear of the voucher system to get our kids out from under the no teach teachers unions. Yes that is a republican idea to get our kids a good education that you progressives hate, because our kids will lean something rather than be dependent on the government dole that you progressives want everyone to be on. Dependent on a Government headed by a stupid Obama that has no clue about anything. Talk about an idiot.

    Good one, I learned that from a union teacher who could not teach. Now do you get my point? I didn't think so.
