Sadly, the “War on Science” started long before Trump.
Trump has just perfected the nomination people who have the exact opposite goals as that of the organization they will be “leaded” (dismantling).
There has not been an agency that has not be affected by the “all politics, all of the time” philosophy.
EPA can barely regulate anything
FDA is wholly owned by agribusiness and the drug companies.
CDC - wholly own subsidiary of the Monsanto Corporation
NIST - So political that it needs to remove “Science” from its name - NIT
FBI - Can’t investigate anything
Department of Education - come on - Besty DeVos???
TSA - bringing the illusion of security to our airports
War Department - Peace is our Profession - Mayhem is just our hobby
Bureau of Public Roads, Langley VA. (aka the CIA) - At least it is an organization that is not controlled by politics. Instead, it controls the politicians.
