2. Is it treason?

I ask, is it a minor form of treason for the Chairman of the House Committee on Science, Space and Technology to sponsor a bill called the "High Quality Research Act" while knowing full well that the wording invalidates scientific methodology and hampers knowledge and technology and basically guarantees we can't reach space?
One would expect from the title "House Committee on Science, Space, and Technology", a group which was in favor of science, space and technology, but apparently not. I urge the members to check the definitions of "oversight" and "suppress", there might be a mix up.
Lamar S Smith of the 21st district Texas, seems like a person who would understand scientific methodology, given the high caliber of his education (Granted, the Southern Methodist University now holds the George W. Bush Library; calling into question the price of the school's moral code as well as their definition of the word library). His past committee seats on Justice, Ethics, and Budget should have given him a understanding of fair play, truth, and the fact that addressing a .2 % of a budget in order to balance said budget is mental masturbation (and unexciting masturbation at that, be careful your hand doesn't go to sleep). The wording of the bill indicates at least a passing knowledge of "peer review" and "research duplication", so personal ignorance seems unlikely.
Occam's razor (the simplest explanation which agrees with all the facts) insists the the right Honorable Representative Lamar S. Smith, isn't. Isn't right, honorable, or representing his constituents; merely big business interests.
At least thats how it seems to me.

3. It's not that the Koch brothers cannot buy enough scientists to do the job under the current

methodology (they can), its just that they don't want to. BP has made MAJOR donations to the Marine Biology Depts of many major universities, including universities without a previously existing Marine science department to create one that will support their views that the Gulf is ok. They have scientists crawling all over each other for that money. Hell, Bp buys up whatever they need to. They have bought up EVERY documentary on the spill before they are released so that the World will not know the truth!

4. So much for the "new" rebranded Republican Party
