Back on August 9 I found some nutty fairy tale about cutting-edge medical research allegedly happening in the United Kingdom allegedly financed by the National Health Service. In the real world, everyone knows that innovation can’t happen in the presence of socialism, so obviously the story was false. And now The Washington Post is publishing another obviously fraudulent story about some big government boondoggle called the National Institutes for Health, a little island of socialism right here in the United States, that they want us to believe is somehow responsible for innovation:
For more than five decades, scientist Thomas Waldmann’s cutting-edge research at the National Institutes of Health has resulted in significant advances in the treatment of patients with cancer, AIDS and multiple sclerosis, including new therapies for previously fatal forms of T-cell leukemia and Hodgkin’s lymphoma. […] Like many accomplished federal employees, Waldmann could have sought private-sector employment, but his dedication to public science kept him at NIH.
Next thing you know they’re going to be trying to have us believe that big government invented a way for people to fly to the Moon and walk around!
