Your Tax Dollars At Work

Remember when Obama went through the budget line by line? For example, he cut $1 million dollars to an educational fund which handed out scholarships and promoted math and science education. Claimed they were being "inefficient".

Well, it seems like he may have missed one or two other items-

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.

Though public health officials say that HIV/AIDS rates are higher in Washington, D.C., than in some parts of West Africa, U.S. government funds are going to help curb dangerous liaisons in Argentina's capital.

Bad enough they're paying to cruise gay bars- worse that they're doing the research in Argentina. You'd think that, just maybe, that particular area would be the concern of, oh I don't know, the Argentinian government perhaps?

It's a good thing that America isn't suffering a tremendous economic crisis with unemployment at a 26-year-high of 8.9% while taxpayers' money is wasted on a risky-gay-sex study in another nation...oh, wait....
