Out of the Blue

The cold snap hereabouts is getting worse, rather than better, with the temps frequently below zero when the wind chill is taken into account. Seems like this going to be the case all weekend, and there is snow in the forecast for later on top of all this, so I am determined to pick up some meat and crank out some chili as a way of adding a little internal fire to our efforts at staying warm. On the other hand, the doggies are in heaven, and spending a ridiculous amount of time in the backyard... Hudson the wonder dog in particular slows down a lot in the summer, and the colder it gets, the happier she is, and this recent freeze has her acting like a puppy.

So no, you can't convince me that that there's the need to spend even 1 penny of tax dollars on research science.

It's a good thing for our sake (and yours even though you don't know it) that you have no choice in the matter.

Both the private sector and the government research incubate each other, we could go back and forth on cause and effect all day. They both have very positive effects on society as a whole and that's why I'm glad people with some vision are making the decisions. I don't personally care for the majority of the arts funding but I recognize their influence on society and our subsequent benefit. I don't like how every penny of my tax money is spent but I don't sit there and miser it either, some things are just necessary.

If you think it's necessary than you pay for it. Stop putting your hand in my pocket.
