Completely and entirely false. The private sector cannot afford to gamble on the kind of cutting edge research done in the public sector, nor can the private sector afford to have the long development cycles of the public sector (which are often necessary when doing groundbreaking work) - which is why the private companies fund work done at Universities and Laboratories.

I have good friends who were in the private sector. They make a lot more money, but, for them, the research is typically less interesting.

Please don't forget GPS coming out of the DoD.

Or the fact that a great deal of the success we owe in producing and maintaing a cheap, abundant food source can be laid at the feet of the USDA and Land Grant University System.

Private industry is often antithetical to true innovation. The onus isn't on what's best, but what makes the most money.

I'm rubbing my eyes and staring at my monitor intently, trying to believe what I'm seeing, that anyone could interpret it that way. Miller had a _complete meltdown_ on Hardball.
