Please, any right-winger here, defend what happened here.

PS She got an apology. My response would have been "You can apologize for a misunderstanding. This seems to be the official policy of the US government. Admit as much or do something about it."

You might enjoy this one, Bryn. Among the 'impacts' are how we use language, not only to lie but stigmatize those who disagree with us...

Day one. Nothing unusual happened. Maybe you could relax a little? In deference to your stern, heart felt warning, please keep all informed if ya feel something hit.

81% of U.S. scientists identify as Democrats or lean to the Democratic Party

scientists tend to bitch and moan and protest and write letters, complaining about the actions and plans of the current White House and the GOPers in positions of authority related to science issues (Lamar Smith, etc.)

they do not help much with the goals of building hotels and shitting all over the environment and ensuring the financial security of the plutocracy

they must be slapped down and put in their place
