Letter: U.S. must lead in research

Did you know that the United States is no longer the global leader in research? This is largely due to funding - both government and private funding.

According to what those who took the survey say, they lack funding to expand their research operations.

What we need is adequate funding for scientific research - those working to find a cure for cancer and other diseases.

Article comment by: 60 Year Old Man

It is a tragedy that our leaders and the voters have not made R&D a major issue. It's called Wal-marting of America - everything must cost the lowest regardless if there is value or not and Tea-Party Republicanism NO, NO, NO to everything even investments in our future.

And Capt. Nice, what bothers me about you no-choice folks is you scream about giving the woman choice while sending young men and woman to die in foreign lands so your defense stocks rise.

Also, instead of taking in all the propaganda about abortion and then sprewing it out, consult a real doctor about abortion techniques.

Jimi, I'd suggest you get to know what the liberal movement is all about. Please, don't misrepresent it. To know it, is to love it.

And all those comments about you need to serve in the military to be in charge of military. I'm waiting for one of you to rail on GW and his chickenhawk administration that caused us to be tied down in two wars, our longest war, and has caused the recesssion that started in Feb, 2008 and continues to this day.

Expensive research is done, by GE for example, in countries where pro- fits are taxed highest here:Bavaria. Chances for industrial espionage against Siemens close by are good.
Wherever R&D happens - to con-
vert it into sales and profits is
still the mastermind of U.S. Inc.
The use of Cayman Island or
Geneva to minimize taxation is
legal. - WHY? Ask your Congress
man.

@ The Tea Party Is On Koch

"Money hiders come in both shades, but some are hipocrites and talk a good fight but really don't care whether the U.S. makes it or not.”
People with money in overseas banks are not hiding their money. The money is reported to the IRS on tax returns.

I am sure that you make every attempt to get the most from your own money. Anyone who doesn't is a fool. The wealthy are hit hard by the progressive tax code. The ones with funds overseas are legally investing in a manner that will preserve some of their money.

Not only do some people from both sides of the political aisle look out only for themselves with no regard to the country, but there are people on both sides of the financial spectrum who do the same.

People who choose not to acquire basic job skills. People who involve themselves in drugs and crime. People who choose to have children that they cannot afford. People who choose not to work and who game the system.

These people don’t care if the country makes it. They are participating in the destruction of the economy.

Did I make a distinction between teapublicans and liberals? Money hiders come in both shades, but some are hipocrites and talk a good fight but really don't care whether the U.S. makes it or not. They just take care of themselves and their cronnies.

"did you vote for Obama?"

Nope! However, that doesn't mean any of the other candidates were qualified either! Just being a CEO or Company President, does not qualify one in leadership unless you want to count "President" of a debate club, then maybe. At least Ron Paul served and had military personnel working under him. What did Myth or Obama have?

"As I have said in the past, without a military background, you should not be in control of anything military."

Glad to see you say that you believe obama is not qualified to be Commander In Chief. I agree with you completely.

LOL

tea party blah blah blah

"Maybe we could ask some of the chickenhawk billionaires who hid their money in the Caymans and Switzerland to invest some of that money in some Jobs for Americans!"

Lots of them are libs despite your mental impairment which makes you believe that libs don't want war (see: "Obama").

Capt. Nice, now can you tell me what qualifies Rand Paul in anyway when it comes to leadership? As I have said in the past, without a military background, you should not be in control of anything military. Remember, he's right there along side with your conservative crowd that want to reduce or take away your military benefits that were promised to you when you signed the bottom line.

@trained observor

"Gene you won't find any supporters in this community."

You know, you included yourself by saying that.

"think that global warming doesn't exist"

Verdict is still out on that. I'm still waiting for the ice age we were assurred in the 70's by "experts" would here by now.

"ignore the polluters like mining companies..."

And you never use anything in your “ordinary life” made of anything that was mined by the evil-doers?

"They seem to think that the planet has unlimited resources....”

Good thing you are here to tell us how short-sighted we are. I'm sure that when you go to the store to buy your non-GMO foods, you are not driving a car that uses non-renewable oil, and your car is made of all renewable materials, and runs on sunshine and unicorn flatulence.

And you let us all know how short-sighted we are using your wind or solar powered computer made of natural materials, not the environment harmful ones.

Thank you, Captain Planet. You're my hero.

(extreme sarcasm, off)

Being smugly critical of others while doing the same is really hypocritical.

LOL

All political parties ARE corrupt. All want more power, money and control.

Whereas you can find a conservative spouting �family values� while looking for dates in restrooms, that doesn�t affect the nation. That�s common turpitude most powerful fall into.

The liberal movement is dangerous in its cultist demands of unquestionable obedience from the masses and hateful rancor if you differ from indoctrinations or dare despair their icons.

Accusations of terrorism fall on military veterans, Tea Party and ALL are called �racist� when they disagree with Obama policies. NONE have engaged in these acts but radical liberals have.

Evolved into this type of society, there is no benefit in being innovative or productive unless it involves a vulgar anti-Christian display or falls into the media inspired prejudicial targeted De-jour for which you�ll be celebrated.

Making a good living is not O.K. unless you�re a rapper or extreme liberal.

During times like this, under leaders like this, it is best to lay low, show as little income as possible, shift to a neutral political party.

Be non-productively low income and you won�t be targeted.

It�s NOT a good time to create the cure for cancer or AIDS

Show me a politician I'll show you a crook.

My Father said that all his life...I realized a couple decades ago. He was and still is absolutely correct.

Parties mean nothing. There is not ONE politician in Washington or locally for that matter that cares if you or I lie or die. They don't care if our families starve due to lack of employment, no cares for the sick or elderly, no cares about the future of the nation.

Politicians are out for one thing. Gather as much wealth as possible for as long as they can while telling the public anything it wants to hear to keep the money flowing.

We've all been made suckers and frankly we deserve to be. We wide eyed let our politicians steal us blind.

Gene said absolutely nothing about politics nor did he even hint at politics. Yet not one comment thus far has addressed anything but blind allegiance to some political party. Who cares? He is calling for reform for the good of the country. Wake up and stop this mindless support of of ideaologies.

Article comment by: Jimi Lightfoot

We’ll see less research, inventions, disease cures and the EXCEPTIONALISM that made America the greatest country in the world, continuing the same philosophical direction.

This budding dogma is common in all authoritarian, dictatorship, communist and socialist societies.

It’s the doctrine that individual rights, identity, worth and property are secondary to the mass ideological needs, no matter how flawed the principles.

All must be humble and trite.

Where exceeding expectations breeds’ jealousy, considering the lazy and ungifted WILL become angry.

It’s false humility defined by a president feeling so magnanimous that he insultingly bows to an inferior country’s leader but refuses to honor America’s flag or anthem.

Its rich and celebrities adopting from Africa, being adopting American blacks isn’t “greathearted” enough, implying Americans have it good but alleging these Americans aren’t treated benevolently.

It’s financing foreign adoptions when these dollars could’ve funded fresh water wells and mosquito netting in numerous villages, saving thousands of children.

It’s the Soviet methodology that mandated all restaurants serve the same food. None better or different. All failing equally for “common progressive good.”

It’s where success breeds contempt, progressive is regressive, politically correct “truth” replaces historical realities and rationality.

Welcome to America 2016

untrained observer

What gets me about people like you is that you do not believe in the death penalty because it is immoral, but believe in taking a baby by snipping it's spinal cord and sticking a needle in it head to abort and kill it.
I have yet had a liberal explain that one to me!
I realize that liberalism is a sickness, but I sure wish they would keep their brainwashed opinions to themselves.

I really didn't mean Ron Paul but would accept his Son who seems to be more level headed and smarter.
I don't think even in this short period of time we would be in any of the messes our current leader has put us in if Romney were President!
I know you liberals think Romney is a dirty word but who cares as you are wrong!

isn't is odd, that the democraps always think they know better, and and are always right.
they continue to blame the repubs for everything.
last I looked, both parties were full of career politicians, and their only interest was fattening their wallet!
to blame one party for all our problems, is not accurate.

"Our brilliant voters in the last elections let a real leader go"

Let me guess! Ron Paul? He's the only one that had any "REAL" type of leadership even though he was weak everywhere else. But he probably knows what a service member is, what they do, and spell it also unlike all the other "figureheads" that were running for President.

Gene
When a country puts more faith in what a russian leader say's than in it's own leadership, how in the world is the US ever going to lead in anything.
Putin is pulling all the strings right now and obama is looking like the inexperienced community organizer that we all suspected.
Our brilliant voters in the last elections let a real leader go and voted in what we have today.
When they say uninformed voters, (I say ignorant) how right they are

Gene you won't find any supporters in this community. We have people here that don't read anything about science, think that global warming doesn't exist, think birth control is somehow "immoral", ignore the polluters like mining companies and other basic scientific-related things as these relate to ordinary life. They seem to think that the planet has unlimited resources and that GMO foods are a good idea.

Maybe you could ask Obama to get some of the 7 bill. dollars he sent to Africa and put it toward the research.
