    This is an op-ed piece, but I agree with the sentiment. There's no reason to charge for already funded research. It's looking like people pushing for this bill want to generate more revenue and protect the revenue of other non-free scientific journals.

    To get an idea of what NIH has been doing since 2009, check out PLoS:

    The Global Corporatocracy is not Playing, well organized and going for Blood!

    1 EU and AU mandates to push GM seeds, and produce

    2 Codex Alimentarius, and the hiding of what may be free energy or zero point energy devices.

    3 The battle against cancer wholistic alternative treatments that work, is well documented and they make legislature to ban chelation and ozone therapies

    4 The battle against ibogaine a natural substance that cures practically all chemical addictions, has kept that suplement illegal.
