On September 27th, Republican Congressman Paul Broun made a speech at a sportsman's banquet at the Liberty Baptist Church in Hartwell, Georgia. We can only assume Mr. Broun was pandering to the base and had no intentions of making his views known to the outside world. However, his ridiculous comments were reported all over the world last week. He said, “All that stuff I was taught about evolution and embryology and Big Bang theory, all that is lies straight from the pit of hell. And it's lies to try to keep me and all the folks who are taught that from understanding that they need a Savior." Broun also said that the Earth is only 9,000 years old and was created by God in six days.
~ Evolution, Embryology, & Big Bang are "lies from the pit of hell."
What’s even more outrageous, this damned fool sits on the United States House Committee on Science, Space and Technology. On the committee, he is joined by Republican Representative Todd Akin from Missouri, who also recently gained international infamy after he claimed that women who are “legitimately raped” cannot get pregnant – implying that women who are date-raped are not really raped. Of course, his comments are total rubbish with zero support from science, click here. Both these men have made America a laughing stock around the world. However, they and their fundamentalist backers are devious, often advocating nonsense such as Intelligent Design and anti-abortion quackery posing as legitimate science.
~ The Republican Party has been hijacked by anti-science nuts.
Even in a democracy, it makes no sense to appoint onto committees politicians whose sole agenda is to undermined and destroy the mission of that very same committee! That's letting the fox guard the hen house. However, Mr. Broun is a former medical doctor and Mr. Akin holds a Bachelor of Science degree in engineering. Are they really knuckle-dragging idiots, or are they just scamming their own constituents for votes? We'll never know. But either way, this can’t possibly be good for society or democracy. The radical Tea Party movement has damaged the Republican Party and America – perhaps irreparably – by touting morons and dogma on one hand, and by making liars and fakers out of the moderates on the other. What you end up with is a destabilized and gridlocked nation paralyzed by fanaticism and dishonesty. Case in point: Republican candidate for the presidency, Mitt Romney.

UPDATE: "Global Warming A Total Fraud": GOP Rep.
~ What – or who – is really the total fraud here?
(August 13, 2013) Representative Dana Rohrabacher of California is another moron who sits on the United States House Committee on Science, Space and Technology; he's the vice chairman of this committee, and it seems his goal in life is to destroy science, space, technology, and the truth. That's like hiring a pyromaniac to be the chief of the fire department. On August 8th, he was taped at a town hall meeting calling Climate Change a total fraud that would lead to a one-world government. But he has made many other really idiotic comments before, like saying Global Warming is caused by dinosaur fart.
