Posted on 06/06/2013 5:14:02 AM PDT by IbJensen
(CNSNews.com) The National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH), a division of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), spent $823,200 of economic stimulus funds in 2009 on a study by a UCLA research team to teach uncircumcised African men how to wash their genitals after having sex.
The genitalia-washing program is part of a larger $12-million UCLA study examining how to better encourage Africans to undergo voluntary HIV testing and counseling however, only the penis-washing study received money from the 2009 economic stimulus law. The washing portion of the study is set to end in 2011.
NIH Announces the Availability of Recovery Act Funds for Competitive Revision Applications, the grant abstract states. We propose to evaluate the feasibility of a post-coital genital hygiene study among men unwilling to be circumcised in Orange Farm, South Africa.
Because AIDS researchers have been unsuccessful in convincing most adult African men to undergo circumcision, the UCLA study proposes to determine whether researchers can develop an after-sex genitalia-washing regimen that they can then convince uncircumcised African men to follow.
The aim of the proposed feasibility study is to evaluate the feasibility and acceptability of a post-coital male genital hygiene procedure, which participants will be asked to practice immediately post-coitus or at least 12 hours after, reads the abstract.
Entitled Community-Based HIV VCT: South Africa, the name of the broader umbrella project, the program plans to test how well received the penis-washing regimen is among South African men.
If most of the men in the study wash their genitals after sex, are willing to do so after the study ends, and report that their partners accept the regimen, the researchers will develop another study to see if the penile cleansing procedure actually works to prevent HIV infections.
If we find that men are able to practice consistent washing practices after sex, we will plan to test whether this might protect men from becoming HIV infected in a later study, the grant says.
The studys lead investigator Dr. Thomas J. Coates was the fourth highest-funded researcher in the country in 2002 and is currently conducting HIV research on three continents.
CNSNews.com asked both Coates and NIMH the following question: The Census Bureau says the median household income in the United States is $52,000. How would you explain to the average American mom and dad -- who make $52,000 per year -- that taxing them to pay for this grant was justified?
Coates, who was unavailable for comment, directed CNSNews.com to ask grant-related questions of his assistant, Darya Freedman, who did not respond.
The NIMH also declined to respond to CNSNews.coms question.
Incompetento and her legions aren't qualified or contented to just 'feel' guy's 'junk' at airports. We can only attempt to comprehend their excitement at monitoring all those 'dirty dongs'. What a way to get their jollies off while ripping taxpayers off while doing it. Yes, this is 'unbelievable', but it's in Obama's America and strictly conforms to his vision of hope and change.
I’m at a loss for words...
Liberals can’t find even one program they would cut. I literally found a trillion dollars per year that I would cut with no pain. Stimulus for foreign genitals is one of many wasteful programs we can do without.
Who better to tell others how to wash their genitalia than a bunch of lying, thieving, arrogant American d*cks?
Just saying. It sounds like the Obama Administration finally found something it does well.
“Stimulus for foreign genitals...”
That works on soooo many levels.
Sounds like a job for some poor out-of-work homosexual men.....
Right. They’d clean up those genitals and enjoy their work. Wouldn’t even have to pay them.
I'm not, but if I use the words that I want to use, my post will be deleted.
The US taxpayers get hosed after the IRS screws them.
I know how you feel. Everyday there are multiple stories that make me want to go on a rant that would make Richard Pryor blush.
Could this be an explanation for many of nobama’s foreign trips? Maybe he was the “prime investigator” so to speak as he showed individuals how to do this.
Well, that is good news that all of the peckers in Africa are now clean. Wow, now we can all go back to work and stop going to the welfare offices and ask for help.
And it doesn't feel good and we don't even get a kiss!

Must they be taught EVERTHING? You’d think they’d wonder why their penises stunk to high heaven and tiched all the time. A little common sense might help. Might explain why they’re still living in thatched huts in the 21st century though...
Someone needs to go to jail for misappropriation of taxpayer money!
A snide remark from your gym coach about “keep it clean or it will fall off” worked well enough in my day.
How far the mighty have fallen. Barky slipped out the back door before the cuffs could be slipped on him. Here he is with a new identity and family.
And in addition to spending taxpayer money to teach Aficans how to wash their privates, we’re importing masses of Somalis who don’t know what a toilet is and don’t know how to wash their hands or brush their teeth.
I guess we don’t want all that talent going to waste and just have to have them over here to culturally enrich us in the name of “diversity.”
Marco Rubio—can you hear me?
The shady "Barack H Obama Foundation? was created hy half-brother Malik---in honor of their father--which was fast-tracked for tax-exemption by the IRS.
The tax-free Obama foundation, fast-tracked by Lois Lerner for IRS tax-exempt status, is based at a Virginia UPS store, according to its website. The organizations IRS filings list another Virginia address that is actually a drug rehab center where the foundation does not appear ever to have been based.
As first reported by The Daily Caller, the foundation was speedily approved for IRS exemption by Lois Lerner, the self-same IRS senior official at the center of the targeting of conservative organizations that have waited over two years to receive tax exempt status. The IRS thoughtfully gave Obama Foundation retroactive fund-raising status.......which it stupidly never applied for.
The tax-exempt Barack H. Obama Foundation is run by Abongo Roy Malik Obama, the half-brother of Barack Obama.
The foundations mission statement is to provide people everywhere with resources to uplift their welfare and living standards in memory of dad--- Barack H. Obama: in the region of his birth, Kenya, and beyond. Its guiding principle is the inherent belief that no one can truly enjoy the riches he has reaped if his neighbor suffers....."We seek to elevate the human condition so that everyone can live in dignity and truly enjoy having one another as neighbors.
(same old, same old sap-happy do-goodniks)
Despite raising more than $250,000, the alleged charity doesnt seem to have done much. Its website claims the organization has built a madrassa and was building an imams house as well as some proposed latrines. But there is no other evidence that the nonprofit was working to mitigate social-shortcomings in areas of education and literacy, health and well-being, poverty, and lack of community infrastructure in such basic needs such as water, electricity, shelter and sustenance, as the site says.
Alton Ray Baysden, a former Dept of State employee, allegedly a registered Republican, who helped start the Barack H Obama foundation, declined to comment before seeing copies of a reporters passport and govt ID, along with a description of the articles motivation and slant.
Repeated reporters' phone calls went to the organizations voicemail and were not returned.
OBAMA GIVES 50 MILLION DOLLARS IN AID TO KENYA;
O'S KENYAN HALF-BROTHER READY TO CASH IN---
VIA THE TAX-EXEMPT DO-GOOD "OBAMA FOUNDATION"
The tax-exempt charity named in honor of their Dad,
is supposedly run by President Barack Obamas half-
brother Malik who spends most of his time in Kenya
with his 12 wives.
Obama's half- brother Malik holds up photo of Obama in Muslim
dress taken on a trip to Kenya when Ohaha was about 23-24 yo.
Obama is exporting thousands of these tax-paid ***-washers attached to power hoses.
Apparently so and continue to reiterate the teachings time and time and time and time again. We're still teaching them how to dig a water well to have water to wash their AIDS spreading organs. Decade after decade after decade of this "tool is called a shovel and it can dig a hole to water."
The great underlying question I have is “Why do we care if africans die of aids (or whatever)?” What possible state interest is served by this? I can’t come up with one.
If people are concerned about sticky african privates they can use their own charitable contributions to address the issue.
If these africans are a threat to us, we should respond promptly (Kill them all). If they are not a threat to us they can safely be ignored.
(BTW, lest someone think I’m racist, I feel exactly the same for almost every group of foreigners: mexicans and other latinos, eastern europeans, arabs etc. If they are a threa, kill them, else ignore them.)
We had it solved for much, much less!
This evil administration is always concerned with programs that are dirty. It is the administration of homosexuals and other assorted perverts who make a career out of destroying our nation and our lives.
Americans are struggling to support kids, pay off college debt, and help parents out... Our fools in Washington want to take more from Americans so they can ‘feel’
the grandiosity of ‘giving’.
If our Washington blowhards want to ‘give’ they should reach into their own pocket and pull out their own damn wallet.
