THE MARCH AGAINST SCIENCE

On April 22, 2017, liberals took to the streets to 'March For Science'. As usual, they demonstrated their fitness to walk and to carry large cardboard signs. Only I'd say, this was actually a march against skepticism, against any voices that disagreed with them, against even scientists whose results differed from the 'consensus' that now takes the place of scientific proof. And with all the bluster and verbiage were underlying threats against those who would hold an opinion they disagreed with. Freedom of speech is limited to them, don't you know.

The whole thing, of course, is ridiculous. I don't know who is against science. Science has brought us marvelous things: cellphones, TVs, automobiles, computers, antibiotics, electricity, you name it, we are led by science. The smug thought that there is anyone against science and that we must somehow stand up for it verges on the insane.


But skepticism, ah, that is something else. We will agree with the marchers, we will accept their verdicts, we will not threaten their views. Or else.


Skepticism, however IS the foundation of science. In 1615, Galileo Galilei was tried for heresy by the Roman Inquisition for believing that the earth revolved around the sun. Girolamo Fracastoro in 1546 proposed his germ theory and was greeted with disdain. In 1982, the American biochemist and neurologist Stanley Prusiner proposed that prions were responsible for Mad Cow Disease and was met with anger and disbelief. Everywhere you look, the 'consensus' has often been shown to be wrong, wrong, wrong.


Back in 1968, biologist Paul Ehrlich, peddling neo-Malthusian theory, said overpopulation would soon destroy mankind; over ten years ago, former Vice President Al Gore told us we only had 10 years to save the planet from global warming; oh, and back in the 70s, we were told to prepare for the coming Ice Age. Yet we are still here. All of us.


So go the marchers, following the Pied Piper consensus of Leftist politics whose bidding they are really doing. Politics is science, science is politics. There IS climate change/global warming because they say so. Overpopulation is right around the corner because they say so. Obey their thinking because they say so.


By denying the skeptical, the 'March for Science' was really a 'March Against Science'.

SANTA FE THE GREEDY

If you've ever needed a reason to avoid Santa Fe, New Mexico, you now have a pretty good one.

Thanks to the genius of Mayor Javier Gonzales and the dwarves on the city council, they want to pass a sugar tax that would not only raise the cost of soda drinks you order at a restaurant or fast food drive-up but would, according to a newspaper ad now running from the organization "Better Way For Santa Fe & Pre-K", raise a gallon of juice drink from $1.59 to $4.06; a 12-pack of soda would be upped from $4.49 to $7.37; and a canister of lemonade mix would rise astoundingly from $6.98 to $28.74.

Purported to be an outgrowth of their 'concern' for public health and to fund more useless programs for the 'children', it's really just another behind-the-back tax to further feed the ever-expanding hog of government they've created in that ultra-liberal city. Of course, the picture of Santa Fe liberals going to the polls to further screw themselves is a laughable sight indeed, but for those who just want to quench their thirst and sweet tooth without the demands of money-gut politicians it will make a trip outside the City Indifferent to buy soft drinks a necessity.

There will be a special election vote this May 2 but, whether it is defeated or not, government-government-government is all these liberal Communistic political weasels ever have on their mind.

ADDENDUM: On May 2, 2017, the measure was defeated: 11,533 against the tax and 8,382 in favor of it. Which all goes to show that you can lead a Horse to water but you can't make it shoot itself in the foot.
