http://news.yahoo.com/s/nm/20050708/sc_nm/economy_usa_science_dc I know the above article deals with offshoreing and markets going over seas but is our American culture also making it uncomfortable for science. Are the politics bullying science into a static position and even reversal. That concerns me because I see the majority of Scientist who do not give a flip about politics and just want to conduct good science. I see agendas and major p.r. campaigns mixed with politics that are meant to destroy good science The scientist for the most part do not play hard ball politics will they just pick up and go else where. Scientist though highly intelligent mixed with percieved arrogance just want to do good work and seem to me innocent, and are not into politics, religion, or even destroying religion. In a nutshell why are we demonizing Science? what say you. I for one do not want to see our country go backwards and make science and scientist the bad guy because they are not. imho so I ask the question is Science static or in decline in the United States.
