“Facts? We don’t need no stinking…facts…”
WASHINGTON — The Bush administration is clamping down on scientists at the U.S. Geological Survey, the latest agency subjected to controls on research that might go against official policy.
New rules require screening of all facts and interpretations by agency scientists who study everything from caribou mating to global warming. The rules apply to all scientific papers and other public documents, even minor reports or prepared talks, according to documents obtained by The Associated Press.
You almost have to admire the nerve of an administration that decides that any proven fact that disagrees with their big business/theocratic plan can’t be uttered.
Almost, until you snap to and realize that this is how a fascist government operates.
