Why do they continue to think that more than the 24 board members and about thirty people like jazz? Wait, what? It’s all about them big ass paychecks the board members get that’s why.

Amazing the USDA story continues to have legs. Just another indication that the media has bought the union, liberal, democrat story that "TRUMP IS DESTROYING SCIENCE". Just like the terms "racist", "xenophobic", "anti-Semite", "misogynist", "anti-dentite" (you had to see the Seinfeld episode) persecution, they need to come up with a better term for someone that discriminates against scientists specifically to describe Trump. Ideas?
