Innovation Killaz

Big changes at Darpa - decreased IT funding to universities, a focus on near-term results (deliverables), and more classified projects.

Hopefully you know about the huge impact Darpa's had on seeding the most culturally and economically revolutionary technologies of the last 50 years or so.

So, let me get this straight: we're cutting investment in the source of our accelerating productivity? Wow, this really is the stupidest thing possible, in all the universes of possible stupid things, to do.

The drooling mindless idiot yokels who've got their hand on the rudder of our country are piloting us straight into the 3rd world. Words cannot express my contempt for a government which finds innumerable ways to, quite literally, screw Americans (and the very ideals that are America).
