I received an e-mail from Glenda today about the ‘Pork Awards.’ Ron Paul awards these to the worst cases of things the Government spends money on. It is well known that we do spend money on what most common folk call Stupid things like:
Studied if you’ll eat ground-up bugs (NIH & NIFA) ….…....... $1,327,781.72
Why stress makes hair turn grey (NIH) .......................... $36,831,620.00
Eastern Mediterranean youth to stop smoking hookah) .... $1,471,617.00
Used cancer research money to create a “smart toilet” (NIH) ...... $6,973,057.00
Tried to get adults to stop watching so much TV (NIH) ..... $1,246,507.00
Tested if hot tubbing can lower stress (NIH) ….........…… $2,004,704.00
Develops a master’s degree in research ethics in Myanmar (NIH) .. $968,932.00
Spent billions in Afghanistan on counter narcotics efforts ….... $8,620,000,000.00
Spends millions to help deal with truant Filipino youth (USAID) ... $37,500,000.00
Teaches English to rural unemployed Romanians (State) .................... $25,000.00
That is just a sample…
The administration whether Red or Blue makes no difference, the crazy spending goes on and on and on.
Did you know that our Pentagon actually has a plan in place in case we are attacked by Zombies? TRUE! We cover many bases, LOL.
Some of us believe in a Second Coming, but the Pentagon has no plan of action when that happens. ;-)
Did you know the giving of our richest people in the USA is increasing? They give many Billions to charities, causes and the poor? The latest studies show we little guys are donating less over all to charities, showing we are getting tighter or we have less disposable income (Those are my opinions) Personally I think we have increased our giving especially with church and tipping some of the harried clerks, waiters and waitresses.
Did you see the interview between the financial advisor and the beer drinker?
Advisor, “I see here you drink from 3-5 beers each evening. That is probably about $5 a night, plus probably $.50 to travel & electric to keep it cool. Did you realize that is over 40,000$ in 20 years, you could own a small plane if you didn’t drink beer!”
Drinker, “Do you drink beer?”
Interviewer, “Of course not?”
Drinker, “Where is your airplane?”
Some logic doesn’t hold water. LOL
I love this blogging world….
PS: The sounds of water and beer! If you have a minute you will be amazed.
