Thought I'd get an unbiased critique of science in America and our lack of the general population being clueless. Instead it was a political view (mostly left) about one party being an enemy of science. Ever think that some of the government paid scientists are not being truthful/completely in the open about some of their projects? I'm saying it has to be fair when you critique an issue. This one isn't by a long ways. Did read recently (2016) that 65% of the college graduates never have taken an "upper division" science or math class....that tells you a lot right there.
