The people’s betrayal

The noted abuse by the IRS against the Tea Party is not the only example of such abuse to suppress those with other ideals that do not support an agenda.

Max Armstrong of Farm Progress America spoke of the EPA charging conservative think tanks and others and not charging environmental groups for “Freedom of Information” papers. U.S. Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, and other senators have made note of this.

The EPA has an agenda to control any practice they choose. They frequently have supported, cited and used data that has been done with the objective of promoting an agenda and ignoring data and facts that do not support or that oppose that agenda.

This practice is something with which scientists (and others) must not indulge. Data and facts, both in support of and opposing a theory, must be considered and be given equal weight. To do otherwise is fraud, and only convinces those who do not think or who want to jump the protest bandwagon of the uneducated who support the false agenda. Some of the propaganda we hear on the anthropologically-caused global warming or climate change agenda is of this questionable nature.

Some of the news shows, such as Bill Moyers, interview people who support one agenda and ignore or even ridicule those who oppose that agenda. Moyers’ show on gun control is an example of this.
