Here we go again. The conservatives (read Republicans) are taking a beating again.

Despite all the talk of a "war on science" being waged by political conservatives and Republican politicians - to match their supposed wars on women, men, the young, and the old, no doubt - North Carolina now features a shrill and relentless rhetorical war on social science by political...
