The United States of Asininity: A Law Requiring Political Approval of Scientific Publications

Congressman Lamar Smith of Texas has submitted a draft bill titled the High Quality Research Act which would in effect add a politician into scientific studies.
(NaturalNews) The bill says that any research done using federal funds (which is the majority of research done in the United States) must have its results and finding approved by the Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation of the Senate and the Committee on Science, Space, and Technology of the House of Representatives. If the findings are not agreed to, the research is taken from the researchers and disposed of by Congress as it sees fit.
Congressman Lamar Smith is a horse's arse intent on (a) making the United States a laughing stock, and (b) allowing the likes of Al Gore to dictate the "findings" of all US research on climate science and every other thing the US Government wishes to lie to you about.

The US is fast catching up to where the Soviets left off in tyrannizing over and lying to their people.

But the EU still holds the lead in bullshit bureaucracy with the the Plant Reproductive Material Law:
(NaturalNews) A new law proposed by the European Commission would make it illegal to "grow, reproduce or trade" any vegetable seeds that have not been "tested, approved and accepted" by a new EU bureaucracy named the "EU Plant Variety Agency."

It's called the Plant Reproductive Material Law, and it attempts to put the government in charge of virtually all plants and seeds. Home gardeners who grow their own plants from non-regulated seeds would be considered criminals under this law.
