Re: "It’s also conceivable that the Science Committee doesn’t like the Obama plan because it’s the Obama plan. This has been known to happen in the House." Zing!

How do they know they've identified 95%, if they haven't identified all of them yet?

Does it really matter that the legislator overseeing government science funding and legislation in the US has a social science degree in American Studies? Then he earned a law degree. He has no formal training in science AND he is from Texas, where is science is recognized as nothing more than a liberal plot. This is not a good combination for effective governing.

KILLER ASTEROIDS! Just what we need. More doom-saying that politicians can parlay into votes and tax hikes. It is inevitable that sometime in the future, maybe tomorrow or maybe in a billion years and regardless of what we do, the cosmos will unceremoniously and without malice, extinguish all life on planet Earth and ultimately vaporize the planet itself. Deal with it. In the meantime, it's a beautiful day and I have a 1:00 tee time and some ribeyes marinating in the fridge at home.

Come on Stribe. Let's get Paulson and Kline on the record on this. We have elections coming up. That's your job. You can do it.

Would 'Real Housewives of the Red Planet' air on a Thursday? That would be a problem, because there's already too many other good shows on Thursday. I hope the House Science Committee is looking into this.
