Physicists, Reitze’s gonna eat you out of house and home!

April 2, 2019

If you still have not figured out what the David Reitze phenomenon means for your family dinner table, check out this report.

President Trump has asked for one billion dollar budget cut for NSF. Agency Director France Cordova is OK with this. She is seeing to it that LIGO funding will not be affected (LIGO is one of her Big Ten):

Despite having $1 billion less to work with, Córdova found room to push ahead with a major new cross-disciplinary initiative, called NSF’s 10 Big Ideas. She’s seeking a total investment of $357 million in the multifaceted effort, up $75 million—some 26%—over projected spending this year.

So Reitze can run his fraud empire outside any accountability, get all the money he cares to ask for, and then has secured future funds should the budget axe fall. It seems he may even get an increase if he wants, amid this deep cut.

So where is the billion dollar cut coming from?

If you depend on NSF funds for you livelihood, your kids may have to leave the dinner table hungry, and cry themselves to sleep.
