Perfect time for the Governor of New Mexico to veto the GRT bill.

Everyone knows this is how the GRT is used, why is this a surprise? This is New Mexico after all land of corruption.

Consider that it is a perfect storm, with a home grown lab Director and like-minded politicians running the show. Just don't forget that LANL exists solely for the enrichment of the local community, and for no other reason whatsoever.

Right. That's what everyone in Washington thinks. Plus everyone in Russia and China. Plus everyone in academia who try to match LANL's data. Plus the military, who depend on LANL for NW issues and results. But keep on with your mindless drivel it is entertaining!

Those days are long long gone. It is about free money now and has been since 2005.

If you think everything changed at LANL in 2006 (not 2005), you're very confused. It didn't. The entire budget for managing the lab PLUS the additional GRT the lab had to pay took up about 7% more of LANL's budget in 2006. 93% of the budget stayed the same.

The lab most certainly does NOT exist "solely for the enrichment of the local community", that's a gross exaggeration. 93% of LANL's budget was spent on the same things post-2006 as pre-2006. Of the 7%, less than 1/3 of it made it into the local communities, that's about 2% of LANL's budget.

It's fair to argue that the 2% was wasted, and much of it was wasted, but don't try to turn a 2% issue into a 100% issue. This kind of gross exaggeration just makes you sound like a fool.

Nothing new. The "it's all about the money" guy has sounded like a fool from the start. Zero brain cells, and dollar signs instead of eyeballs. Yeah, just like the cartoon.

Not to mention the budget increases that have generally overwhelmed the 7% issue. Most LANL programs have more cash than they can spend. (not sure they want people to know that though)....
