Just when you think that the wastefulness of the U.S. government can’t get any worse they go out and spend money on some really bizarre things. Now it has come out that the U.S. government is spending $2.6 million U.S. tax dollars to train Chinese prostitutes to drink responsibly on the job.
Yes, you read that correctly.
The National Institute of Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism, which is a part of the National Institutes of Health is spending $2.6 million tax dollars to study the drinking habits of Chinese prostitutes. Apparently the scientist running the project believes that there is a legitimate governmental interest being served by this study, but this is just ridiculous.
There are people losing their homes and sleeping in their cars and living in tent cities in America tonight, and the U.S. government is spending money to train Chinese prostitutes how to drink responsibly?
A whole lot of people deserve to be fired over this.
But unfortunately this is not an isolated incident. The reality is that the U.S. government is wasting money at an unprecedented pace.
