Rep. Lamar Smith (R-TX) is such a piece of shit.

Okay, how was this Lamar Smith character not torn from his thrown after that SOPA crap?

The people closely associated with the namesake of female canines are suffering from a nondescript form of lunacy.

Why on Earth would you want to rid the field of peer review, and deny the opportunity of independent experts to verify your findings & review the research that led you there, unless you wanted to sell something that either didn't work for, or was actually detrimental to, the buyers?

I can kind of see what he's trying to do. Job creation is an important part of an economy and new jobs often come from new scientific endeavours, but modifying the peer review process is not the best way to do this. Without peer review, things might actually get worse as investors waste money on unproven sciences.

Because under his bill, if someone can show that a "research project" about Creationism would create jobs, (the man is from the Bible Belt), and fund a Creationism Museum, they could not be stopped, and his committee could appropriate money for that bullshit.

That is a disturbing possibility.

What shocks me is that there are still people who will stand there with a straight face and claim that congress exists to serve the populace. Dodgy

You will be hard pressed to find those that will say that the congress is currently serving the people, as the statistics show. The Republican party is for the rich, and the Democratic party is populist. You'd have to be a complete dolt to believe that the purpose of congress is to do so, and moreover, to abandon such a novelty simply because we let it fall into disrepair in the first place. I find that people who simply throw in the towel concerning government, and go with the notion that living without one is entirely sustainable, not only are an instrument in fulfilling their own prophecy, but are also incredibly ignorant of humanity's evolutionary past.
