IL-11: Congressman Bill Foster Recognized for Physics Achievement of Particle Accelerators — 8 Comments

  1. The man has been out of the physics game and serving in Congress since 2008, so it seems kind of weird that they’re just getting around to giving him this prize now.

    The cynic in me thinks that perhaps a left-wing scientific group is trying to help out a liberal Congressman who might be a little bit vulnerable due to redistricting.

  2. Billy Bob,

    Fair enough, but I ask you to go back 20 years to the movie A Beautiful Mind, and how many decades passed when Russell Crowe’s character first thought and wrote about his economic theory, and when he finally received the Nobel Prize for economics?

  3. The APS is a notorious left-wing organization.

    They tolerate no dissent on the subject of man made climate change.

    Many prominent scientists, including a Nobel Prize winning physicist, have resigned their memberships over this issue.

  4. Foster is a pea brained twit. He should be shipped to the taliban.

  5. I watched that movie over Thanksgiving Lopez.

    Movies are not reality even though this one was based on a true story and quite good.

    Reality is the Nobel Prize being awarded to the New York Times for reporting on Trump/Russia collusion and Obama getting it just for being anointed into the Presidency is a joke.

    It’s a liberal organization.

    Trump deserves one for peace in the Middle East and not getting us into another war.

    Who’s first to test the turnip?

    Xi in Taiwan or Putin in Ukraine.

    Nevermind, they both own the turnip through that genius crack addict Picasso idiot son of his.

    If you shop at Walmart I wouldn’t never give them another dime.

    The CEO is anti_Trump and colluded with Hunter on the steal in 2020.

    I won’t post the recorded call from crack boy’s laptop.

    Don’t use Google if you want to find it.

    As I’ve said before > CLOWN SHOW.

  6. **Reality is the Nobel Prize being awarded to the New York Times for reporting on Trump/Russia collusion**

    When did the NY Times win a Nobel Prize?

  7. Jt is a hater and a a prug. Its obvious.

    Foster is smart.

    JT isn’t.

    Nuff said.

  8. There you go Shake.

    You have a new troll friend in Townships.

    You 2 should get together and have coffee.
