Sequester Junk

This morning I read an article in our illustrious state newspaper The Oklahoman lamenting what the sequester would do to medical research at OU Health Science Center in OKC. Funny, this paper has been banging the small government drum, backs tea party candidates, never met a right winger they didn't like and generally would like to see the middle class dead.

Rep. Lankford and others tell voters that the sequester will not hurt them and the pain of it is overblown. Now that people are seeing it impact them, they are beginning to ask questions. I heard a lady yesterday in the grocery store say "I just want the money shut off to welfare mothers in Detroit not Tinker Air Force base where my son works". Well...start paying attention, get some education and you might be able to figure out you are being manipulated by right wing media, republicans and the tea party. All of the above being controlled by rich white guys who don't give a damn about you, your kids, your parents, your job nothing. They only care about getting richer at our expense.

I do not understand the fear of science. OU Health Science researchers are doing cutting edge work on diabetes, Parkinson's and other horrible diseases. We are slowly killing all independent thought including research. This from a state who has a Senator who believes global warming is a myth.

We are quickly becoming a country full of functional idiots.
