Douglas Sczygelski is a human being who lives on Earth. He was fired from his job with the U.S. Customs and Border Protection agency because of his non-violent, perfectly legal political beliefs, which he never discussed at work. Not one single co-worker ever filed a complaint against him, and neither did any member of the general public. Nobody ever accused him of being rude or unfair on the job. Yet he was fired, because liberals don't like his views. Firing him was illegal, because Title 5, section 7323(c) of the federal statutes states that federal civil servants have the right to express their views about "political subjects," but the Obama administration refuses to obey the law. You can write to him at: 1130 West Owens Avenue, Suite 102, Bismarck, ND 58501.
Scientists will soon know so much about biochemistry that it will be possible for any fairly smart college student with some fairly cheap equipment to create deadly new viruses. This will make it possible for terrorists to kill billions of people.
The author was a federal civil servant who was fired solely because he expressed political views, while off-duty and not in the workplace, that liberals dislike. Firing him was illegal, but the federal courts don't have jurisdiction to enforce that particular civil service laws, and the Obama administration refuses to reinstate him and refuses to explain why it is refusing to do so.
Scientists who should be leading a great crusade against global warming, such as Richard Dawkins, Stephen Hawking, Steven Weinberg, Edward O. Wilson, and Neil deGrasse Tyson, are instead doing nothing. Retired politicians, such as Al Gore, Gary Hart and Michael Dukakis, could also be doing a lot more. This apathy is inexplicable.
