People who know nothing about scientific organizations or how they work or the journals they publish do know, based on something they've seen on YouTube, which seems to be their preferred source for authority figures, that "science" is a stench, a prostitute, and a fraud. That these are among the most prestigious scientific organizations in the world just shows how widespread this conspiracy must be.
People who make such ridiculously broad and overheated charges seem to spend their days and nights seeking news items to which they can attach the results of their deep research and bring light to the world on how things really are. What they actually reveal, regardless of the great variety of subjects on which they feel competent to speak, is that they bring only one thing to any honest discussion: nothing.

Yes, the American Association for the Advancement of Science, American Geophysical Union, American Institute of Physics, American Meteorological Society, American Physical Society, etc., are all prostitutes and money-hungry frauds who have been indisputably "debunked" to the satisfaction of the usual trigger-happy Commentariat, who give no evidence of ever having read a scientific paper appearing in a journal published by any of these organizations or could even name any of the journals without having to figure out a way to look them up.

You see, any "science" that liberals cite isn't really science, but only lies, whereas the "science" cited by conservatives is the real truth. Conservatives simply know that even though the organizations opposing the notion of climate change are almost entirely connected to right-wing "think tanks" made up of people who don't engage in actual scientific research, the following scientific organizations are lying when they conclude that deleterious climate change has been caused by human actions: American Association for the Advancement of ScienceAmerican Astronomical SocietyAmerican Chemical SocietyAmerican Geophysical UnionAmerican Institute of Biological SciencesAmerican Institute of PhysicsAmerican Meteorological SocietyAmerican Physical SocietyAmerican Statistical AssociationAustralian Academy of ScienceAustralian Bureau of MeteorologyAustralian Institute of Marine ScienceAustralian Meteorological and Oceanographic Society British Antarctic SurveyCanadian Foundation for Climate and Atmospheric SciencesCanadian Geophysical UnionCanadian Meteorological and Oceanographic SocietyChinese Academy of SciencesCommonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research OrganizationEuropean Federation of GeologistsEuropean Geosciences UnionEuropean Physical SocietyEuropean Science FoundationFederation of American ScientistsGeological Society of AmericaGeological Society of LondonInternational Arctic Science CommitteeInternational Union for Quaternary ResearchInternational Union of Geodesy and GeophysicsInternational Union of Pure and Applied PhysicsIsrael Academy of Sciences and HumanitiesNational Academy of SciencesNational Aeronautics and Space Administration National Institute of Water & Atmospheric Research, New ZealandNational Oceanic and Atmospheric AdministrationNational Research CouncilNational Science FoundationNatural Environment Research Council, UKNew York Academy of SciencesRoyal Astronomical Society, UKRoyal Meteorological Society (UK)Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and SciencesRoyal Netherlands Institute for Sea ResearchRoyal Society of CanadaRoyal Society of Chemistry, UKRoyal Society of the United KingdomRussian Academy of SciencesScience Council of JapanScripps Institution of OceanographySerbian Academy of Sciences and ArtsUnited Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate ChangeUniversity Corporation for Atmospheric ResearchWoods Hole Oceanographic InstitutionWorld Health OrganizationWorld Meteorological Organization

Last time the GOP had the White House and Congress, it started two wars and rammed through a major new entitlement program. They showed no interest in fiscal responsibility, relying on a completely discredited notion that keeping taxes low on the wealthy will magically lead to so much increased government revenue that everything will work out just fine. Deficits only began to matter when a Democrat became President and suggested that increased government spending could help ease the deep recession that GOP magical thinking helped to cause and did nothing to help with.
It's hysterically funny that someone could actually believe the GOP has the slightest interest in educating voters about fiscal matters when it's entire fate is bound up with misleading them, as in the various budget proposals floated by the likes of Paul Ryan.
Complaints about "identity politics" can be translated into "anyone who isn't a White Christian heterosexual male but wants to be included in the nation's politics is demanding special treatment." And expecting the GOP to leave the bedroom out of it ignores the bedrock GOP fear of "homosexual lifestyle issues."

On Selfish Selfies
Repetition of discredited Fox "news" garbage about "actual no-go zones," which has now become an article of faith among those who like to scare themselves, and hope to scare others, that nations like "traditional" France will become intolerant islamic states.
And as for the economic issues, France has done better than England in recovering from the recession, in spite of the latter's recent percentage improvement, which results from its starting from a lower baseline caused by the punishing and self-defeating austerity measures beloved by those who like to bash social welfare programs. The latter types will also dismiss the linked chart because it was posted by someone who actually offers facts and data that conflict with their own fact-free ideological posturing http://krugman.blogs.nytimes.com/2015...

Anyone who thinks he's deeply upsetting his political opponents by using "Barry Soetoro" to refer to Pres. Obama is only showing how deaf he is to the sound of his own stupidity.

Right-wing Texas judge's soon-to-be-overturned immigration ruling gives SB troll a chance to show how clever he thinks he is by referring to President Obama as Barry Soetoro and repeat his imbecilic claim that illegal immigrants hate America.

Bots, I didn't accuse you of being a racist or elitist; I referred to your statement that you were willing to be called one in light of your view that only rich, well-educated people be allowed into this country.
I also never said that the US belongs to anyone other than it's citizens; I did suggest that this includes people not as willing as you are to deport the Statue of Liberty.
If proving one's reading comprehension were a requirement for citizenship, you would be in serious trouble.

When you say "our" country, Bots, you seem not to realize that this country doesn't belong exclusively to you and people like the reliably quick-triggered but witless JJ. Others have a different view of what the US represents. In particular, it's fortunate that my grandparents made it ashore before you or someone with an equally proud willingness to be considered an elitist and a racist sent them back for being insufficiently rich and educated; and speaking of sending things back, you really should start a campaign to return the Statue of Liberty.
