To keep on par with Republicans wanting to ignore all things science-related, Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) will be named chair of the Subcommittee on Space, Science and Competitiveness, where he will oversee NASA and science programs.
He’s delighted with his new role and is prepared to bring the gospel into the way he runs things.
In a statement to Free Wood Post, Cruz said:
“This is really my chance to change things around here. Enough of this climate science junk. God is in control, and if he didn’t want us to destroy the planet he would’ve sent a plague or flood or something.
And as far as NASA goes, no more wasteful spending! We don’t need to explore space. We don’t need NASA, because God only created the Earth. It says so right there in the Bible — God created the Heavens and the Earth.
We need to focus on things right here on this planet like oil, keeping health care from people, and avoiding the needy. Just like the Bible says to.
We need to give all that NASA money to the already wealthy. They seem to really know what to do with it.
I’m excited for my new role and can’t wait to get down to business.”
We here at Free Wood Post don’t think Senator Cruz understands the ongoing importance of NASA and how they have brought about some of the most important innovations ever made.
Hopefully, someone will talk some sense into him.
