    but when they've infested the legislature I give it a bit more effort. Hopefully some of the Baja community will catch this and sound off to their reps in the state senate, as I did.

        That problem is that people have been programmed by their religions to deny that little thing scientists call proof. What complicates things is the demagogues that use religion and conservatism to continue and condone an authoritarianism that inherently is antagonistic towards progress and the forward movement of society and scientific knowledge.

          that says "Before lawmakers can discuss the pros and cons of evolution they should read On the Origin of Species." I bet they think it's about humans descending from monkeys. I'd like to see their reactions to descriptions of petal shapes on islands compared to the mainland, not to mention the excitement and controversial subject of insect differences.

          Sheesh!

          Republicans want to make government small enough to fit in your vagina..
