Within my six decades on the planet, I’ve watched the US go from the greatest Science and Technology country (moon landing, etc.) to an also ran. China and other countries will leapfrog the US in renewable energy, and STEM fields before I turn into cosmic dust within the next quarter century. Banning scientists and researchers due to their religion isn’t helping either, and you can bet China, India and Russia are actively recruiting the world’s best and brightest while the US continues to lag behind.
That’s okay, though, because America discovered the truth about chemtrails, vaccines and the flat earth first!
