When You See What The Government Spent a Quarter of a Million Dollars Studying, It’ll Make You Weep

Beyond ridiculous.

Published

It’s no secret that the government’s super power is finding creative new ways to waste our tax dollars, but sometimes, the way they use our hard earned money — which they gleefully deduct from our checks before we even see it — is so stupid, so immoral, and so egregiously ridiculous that it simply blows the mind.

A new report has revealed that the U.S. government has used up a quarter of a million dollars on a study to find out if people like having sex with condoms.

Yes, this is for real.

According to a report from the National Institutes of Health, a grant for $347,176 dollars (and counting) went to the University of Wisconsin-Madison for a project that studies different types of contraception, their rates of use, and couples’ satisfaction with their preferred method of birth control over the course of a year. The study is supposed to provide results that will help manufacturers better market those contraceptives couples don’t mind using in order to promote childlessness.

“High rates of contraceptive dissatisfaction, switching, and discontinuation in the U.S. demand new approaches to contraceptive acceptability and promotion,” the project’s grant says. “Behavioral models of contraceptive use have failed to address sexuality, even though contraception is designed for sexual activity.”

“The proposal catalyzes a patient-centered approach to contraception that has the potential to improve women’s experiences with their methods,” the grant continues, according to WFB. “Research from this program could ultimately be used to help match women with the method(s) they will find the most sexually acceptable—methods they will like and use—thereby helping women fully realize the social, economic, and health benefits of contraception.”

In other words, the University would ultimately like to make the argument that childlessness has plenty of “social, economic, and health benefits,” but researchers — and “reproductive health experts” — are concerned that people simply give up on birth control and have children not because they want to surround themselves with a loving family, but because it’s just not fun to have sex with a condom on.

This is the sort of thing that makes you want to yank your hair out, as it is simply beyond human comprehension why anyone in their right mind would sign off on the usage of tax dollars for something this stupid.

It’s obscene, absurd, and everything in between.

This is why, if we’re going to leave the whole income tax thing in the Constitution — we shouldn’t by the way, as it’s morally wrong to take someone’s hard earned money — we the people paying taxes, should have some sort of say in how they are spent. Apparently those we elect to office aren’t bright enough to do the job right, so it should be up to us to figure it out.

Huckabee Goes NUCLEAR After April Ryan Calls for Sarah Sanders’ Head to Be Lopped Off

That escalated QUICKLY!

CNN’s April Ryan has been a Democrat Party activist since Donald Trump became president. Her outbursts during White House Press Conferences have become a thing of legend – right up there with fellow CNN reporter Jim Acosta’s. Now, tensions have escalated in a big way after Ryan called for Sarah Sanders’ head to be “lopped off.” This is considered journalism to many members of the media in 2019. Sarah’s dad, former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee, took umbrage with April’s words. Then, it became a Twitter war… Appearing Thursday on CNN’s Outfront, Ryan, who also serves as a political analyst for the network, claimed Sanders had no “credibility left” after special counsel Robert Mueller’s report was released. Ryan noted, “She outright lied, and the people, the American people, can’t trust her. They can’t trust what’s said from the president’s mouthpiece, spokesperson, from the people’s house.” She added, “When there is a lack of credibility there, you have to start and start lopping the heads off. It’s ‘Fire Me Thursday’ or ‘Fire Me Good Friday.’ She needs to go.” Enter Huckabee: So liberals—is this okay?Does CNN have the integrity to deal w/ this incitement to murder?

PIGS ARE FLYING! CNN Savagely Tears Obama Apart After Revelations of Mueller Report

Even a broken clock…

John Salvatore

Donald Trump was exonerated once and for all when Attorney General Bill Barr made it clear there was zero collusion with Russia during the 2016 presidential campaign. Barack Obama, on the other hand, won’t come out completely unscathed. And this is coming from CNN – a vehement defender of 44 and his legacy. Check this out… From CNN: The partisan warfare over the Mueller report will rage, but one thing cannot be denied: Former President Barack Obama looks just plain bad. On his watch, the Russians meddled in our democracy while his administration did nothing about it. The Mueller report flatly states that Russia began interfering in American democracy in 2014. Over the next couple of years, the effort blossomed into a robust attempt to interfere in our 2016 presidential election. The Obama administration knew this was going on and yet did nothing. In 2016, Obama’s National Security Adviser Susan Rice told her staff to “stand down” and “knock it off” as they drew up plans to “strike back” against the Russians, according to an account from Michael Isikoff and David Corn in their book “Russian Roulette: The Inside Story of Putin’s War on America and the Election of Donald Trump”. Why did Obama go soft on Russia? My opinion is that it was because he was singularly focused on the nuclear deal with Iran. Obama wanted Putin in the deal, and to stand up to him on election interference would have, in Obama’s estimation, upset that negotiation. This turned out to be a disastrous policy decision. While speaking with White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney, CNN’s Jake Tapper literally said his network made no errors when it came to reporting on alleged Russia collusion. That’s like Stacey Abrams saying she is the rightfully elected governor of Georgia. It’s…
