You’re right. Let’s hope it starts to catch on with or without the mainstream media.
The Goreworshippers loved throwing “denier” at us. I hope we get mileage out of “alarmist.”
Please God, that we wake up and stop this redistribution scam dead in it’s tracks.
Or simple keep their jobs. As Eisenhower warned in 1960, Government funding of science is likely to produce bad science produced only in the interest of growing government.
It took 50 years, but we are there.
