when they get to create thier own perception of advanced scienc while hustling tax payers with continued delays while conspiring to force govt to pay for thier saffer but still cancer causing progress pausing...???no tax brakes for those skimming the revenue who dont put thier money into sequestration...but , beware, sequestration toxifies what is left of the underground water supply. but be worried becuz the natural gas throughout north america is trying to get away with allowing the water that was mixed into the natural gas to be dumped throughtout north alaska and california and other areas becuz the u.s. govt does not enforce loop hole laws to defend against th 3r dworld practices such mining and money worshiping dictates onto resources out side some ones euro/asia centric extraction of "foreign dependence" on u.s oil and gas reserves forcibly opened from offshore players who dont care about local water,air,soil,healht concerns..
