Your Tax Dollars at Work!

Joe Biden tells us if we were patriotic, we'd happily hand over our hard-earned money to the Obama administration to spend as it wishes.

Perhaps more would agree if the government made some effort to spend the fruits of Americans' labor wisely. Instead, we can always count on politicians and bureaucrats to frivolously dole out millions of dollars on outrageous expenditures that contribute nothing to the lives of the taxpayer.

Here are a couple of outrageous examples of how the government wastes your money:

NIH Funds $2.6 Million Study to Get Prostitutes in China to Drink Less


The federal government is spending $2.6 million to make sure prostitutes in China drink less on the job.

That's the goal of a five-year study, bankrolled by the National Institutes of Health, designed to help lower HIV infections among China's "female sex workers," who are referred to in the study as "FSWs."

Researchers will visit 100 houses of ill repute -- a whole hamlet of harlots -- to collect data on 700 prostitutes and 150 pimps and madams, referred to as "gatekeepers" in the study's sterile abstract.


U.S. Government Funds $400,000 Study on Gay Sex in Argentina Bars


Government researchers are spending more than $400,000 in taxpayer money to hit the bars in Argentina.

The National Institutes of Health are paying researchers to cruise six bars in Buenos Aires to find out why gay men engage in risky sexual behavior while drunk -- and just what can be done about it.


And they wonder why we balk when they demand more of our money!
