586 Days


586 days from now, at exactly 12:01pm eastern time, America will be free from the current form of tyranny that is resident in the White House. Huzzah! George and Laura, Dick and Lynne will no longer be able to foist themselves upon an unapproving (How's that 29% approval rating going by the way W?) public and we will not be forced to suffer their idiotic policies.


The genius of our political systems is that we have a chance for redemption if we make a catastrophic mistake. Thank goodness someone had the foresight to enact the 22nd amendment limiting presidents to two terms in office.


Reason 586 for wishing the Bush Administration was history: Bush Administration's war on science.


Whether it's the "decider" deciding that intelligent design should be taught in the classroom alongside evolution, or his administration's censorship of government scientist who disagree with administration policy, the Bush team doesn't like science. Unless of course it supports their agenda.


Since early 2002, Nobel Laureates and eminent scientists have voiced their concerns over the Bush administration's efforts to edit and shape scientific studies done by government scientists in an effort to control their findings. Don't like the studies on climate change? No problem, just change them!


Bush supporters, and they are out there, will tell you that Bush doesn't hate science, he just wants a fair and balanced discussion. He simply wants all sides to be heard. If someone teaches evolution, then someone should be able to teach the alternative. Only problem, the alternative is not science in the case of intelligent design. It's mythology. Now, don't get me wrong. If you want to believe the earth was created in 6 days, by all means do so. Just don't call it science.


Only 586 more days. Only 586 more days...

Dennis
