Funding Important Stuff

Toejam sent me this.

(CNSnews.com) - The National Science Foundation (NSF) has awarded a $384,949 grant to Yale University for a study on “Sexual Conflict, Social Behavior and the Evolution of Waterfowl Genitalia”, according to the recovery.gov website.

The grant description says,“The project examines how reproductive morphology covaries with season, age, and social environment in a diverse sample of duck species that differ in ecology, territoriality and breeding system."

So lemme get this straight. We can't afford $74K a week to let schoolchildren visit the White House, which is a house that we taxpayers own and let the Obunglers stay in rent free, but we can afford to blow $385K to study the sex life of ducks. And Obeauzeau and the Dimocrats have the unmitigated gall to tell us they cannot find anything in the budget to cut. This was part of the $800 billion Porklulus that Oblunder and the Dimocrats passed back in 2009 to keep unemployment under 8%. How did that work out. $385K to study duck penises.

Yannow, if we really had an unbiased media in this country they would be all over bullshit like this, but since the media is the propaganda arm of the Dimocrat Party they don't bother to cover wasteful and useless spending like this.

What about the million and a half they spent studying why lesbians are fat?

Hell, everybody knows lesbians are fat because all they do is eat, eat, eat.

Well, ducks have some damn impressive equipment:

If their research leads to a medical breakthrough that will give me wedding tackle that's over half the length of my entire body, it will be money well spent ...

Unless it shrinks the rest of me to fourteen inches tall!

All these kinds of research projects are welfare for PhDs. They can't make a living in the private sector so they they write grant applications for this nutty research. When they get the grant approved, they use it to get employed by some university.

You would think that no research ever took place before the government started funding it. The truth is that some of the most important advances took place when research was wholly funded in the private sector.

So Dad, I see you received a grant from the govt. What was the grant for?

ans: The study of Duck Dicks!

They could have saved money by wrapping two research grants into one.

Because you know, this will lead to a study of LGBT ducks.

Nearly $400K to study fucking ducks? Couldn't they just slip some animal loving perv a fiver and hand him a clipboard and a pair of binoculars?

This absurdity is about the same as The Komrade Marxist Liar-in-Chief flying to Israel (at $180,000.00 per hour for Air Force One, not to mention all the support and protections planes that are required) just to make utterly stupid speeches to the Israelis about the "poor, picked on Palestinians".

It is a wonder that Israel hasn't run him out of their country on a rail.

Hopefully, Scottiebill, they'll at least burn the friggin' tree that he "planted".
