preventing idiotic congrescritters from getting in the way
feel free to tag me in any post where this ever happens through the process we discussed above (a scientist gets elected to an important position, lands on the appropriations committee, prevents a decline in science funding OR introduces a pro-science bill that passes and wouldn't have passed except for his presence OR etc etc etc
I'm not judging you for being disappointed in flags. What bothers me is that you turn a solid reason for being disappointed into "your attitude is shit" which promotes nothing but reciprocal aggression because it's mere trashtalk, and this isn't the place for that.
Because it offers no possible solution, no support or encouragement, no real reasoning, it's just a "fuck you" in a few more words than that. Sorry I was much more up front with what I was trying to say?
