Military Industrial Complex?

Ok, that's a shadow of it's former self from the Ike years.

Ike warned about the Scientific-Corruption/Public-Funding Complex.  And that is going gangbusters.  Or was before the bottom fell out of the AGW stuff when all that fraud at NASA/NOAA/CRU came to light over the last few years.

"The prospect of domination of the nation’s scholars by Federal employment, project allocations, and the power of money is ever present and is gravely to be regarded.
Yet, in holding scientific research and discovery in respect, as we should, we must also be alert to the equal and opposite danger that public policy could itself become the captive of a scientific technological elite."

I always hear about the Military Industrial part of that speech, but they never highlight the bit that is the rice bowl of our Liberal University System.  An occasional reminder is warranted.

Now invent me my Gauss Pistol, Scientists!  I want a $800 price point and for it to be comfortable to carry CCW
