WI Assembly Speaker doesn't want anymore pointy-head science

Though he runs a popcorn business that has benefited from centuries of agricultural science, State Assembly Speaker Robin Vos - - in his own words - - wants a UW system that functions more like an arm of the corporate class that pays for his party's campaigns:
“Of course I want research, but I want to have research done in a way that focuses on growing our economy, not on ancient mating habits of whatever,” said Vos. “So we want to try to have priorities that are focused on growing our economy.”
That his business is named RoJo Popcorn - - sharing a moniker with our esteemed senior US Senator who has his own contempt for egghead science - - suggests that there is Intelligent Design.

At least when it comes to GOP synchronicity.

Wow, an instance where they are not interested in the private sex life of someone.

Maybe Robin Vos can go bury his square head in the sand (quicksand, perhaps), since he does not realize that business should not control science. If Vos gets his way, we could change UW's name to the Corporate University of Wisconsin. Maybe soon thereafter people will realize that we no longer live in the United States of America. We have become the Corporate States of America, fully anointed by god herself. Vos, you ARE a dinosaur.
