Who's Cutting the Store?

Of course the House Republicans are going after the National Science Foundation. (See here.) They have this great idea of crowd sourcing the cuts. But, here's the kicker, you can only:
  1. Select to cut what is presented on the YouCut website and
  2. You can't elect not to cut.
So I can vote for your project to be cut but I can't vote to keep your project.

I'm reminded of a Dilbert cartoon where the pointy haired boss says: "We've decided to only do those things we do best."

Alice, Wally and Dilbert cheer. Then, Alice says: "Wait! They don't know what we do best!"

  1. More anti-science stuff. The Tevatron did not get their extension and will be shutting down.
