If you want to get paid for doing something stupid, just turn to the U.S. government. The U.S. government is paying researchers to play video games, it is paying researchers to study the effects of cocaine on Japanese quail and it has spent millions of dollars to train Chinese prostitutes to drink responsibly. The amount of money that the government wastes is absolutely horrifying. Do you remember all of that political wrangling over the debt ceiling deal last year? Do you remember how our politicians told us that there were cutting spending as much as they possibly could? Well, it was all a giant lie. As you will see below, the U.S. government is spending money on some of the most stupid things imaginable. What makes all of this even worse is that we are going into enormous amounts of debt in order to pay for all of this. We are borrowing billions of dollars a day in order to pay for stupid stuff that no government on earth should ever be paying for. Trust me, you are going to find it hard to believe some of the stuff in this list. It is almost inconceivable what our politicians are doing with our tax dollars.
The following are 30 incredibly stupid things that the federal government is spending money on
Linky no worky
Something wrong with the link.
No working link to story.
This is the type of message that the Tea Party PAC’s should be sending out and putting on radio and TV till 2014...then 40 more tired old congress people will be GONE!!
Why don’t you post the article instead of just posting a blog link?
There is a program to confidentially mail free condoms to pre-teens. Good lord.
The link worked for me but it’s dated March 1, 2012. It’s a year old.
speaking of idiots... the bozo-in-chief was complaining about the sequester saying he had no control over the spending cuts- that they had to cut everything, not just fat, bloated federal programs that have served their usefulness...
WHICH federal programs are fat and bloated and have served their purpose was he talking about?
You can cut those any time, Obozo!!!!
Ping to comments.
How much more stupid can it be than to pay able bodied men and woman to do nothing?
It is just immoral beyond reason to take money from productive people and use that money to pay other people to do nothing.
Is Malia Obama’s spring break vacation one of those, or is it the 31st? $115,500 plus paid for by taxpayers. Ground transportation: $23,964.81 Lodging: $21,682.92 Airfare: $47,767.34 Vouchers: $21,636.14 (not itemized) Support Charges: $449.66 (travel for one from Mexico City to Oaxaca, not itemized). It’s bad enough we’re wasting money on Moochelle, but now his kids?
Thanks for the working link.
Thanks for the working link.
