Default 01/01/13 the largest tax increase in history

With the president saying everyone should pay their far share and crap like the GSA spending scandal, solyendra, etc. If things don't change we will be in for a huge tax increase in the new year.

With all that in mind the link below is a list of 30 programs our tax and borrowed dollars were wasted on. Enjoy and take a baby asprin.

Yes, but they have the effing nerve to take more of our money. I posted that more because of principle rather than budget concerns.

A day of reckoning MUST come; we will all be on the hook for higher taxes and for a while to pay off our current tab, much less what odumbocare may cost us if it goes into full effect. If they start planned and targeted spending cuts now with gradual increases in taxes on those who currently pay little or nothing (most of us) they might be able to turn this shatstorm around by the end of my days.

#1 The U.S. government is spending $750,000 on a new soccer field for detainees held at Guantanamo Bay.

Their terrorists and criminals, why the hell should they get a soccer field?

#2 The Obama administration plans to spend between 16 and 20 million dollars helping students from Indonesia get master’s degrees.

How about helping people here get master degrees? It's our money, and should be used for us.

#3 If you can believe it, the U.S. government has spent $175,587 “to determine if cocaine makes Japanese quail engage in sexually risky behavior”.

WTF? Words cannot describe how stupid that is.

#4 The U.S. government spent $200,000 on “a tattoo removal program” in Mission Hills, California.

What does that have to do with anything? If you don't want the tattoo, you shouldn't have gotten it in the first place. MORONS

#5 The federal government has shelled out $3 million to researchers at the University of California at Irvine to fund their research on video games such as World of Warcraft. Wouldn’t we all love to have a “research job” like that?

That is fine for the private sector to pay for, but why the hell should the Governemnt pay for any research for video games?

#6 The Department of Health and Human Services plans to spend $500 million on a program that will, among other things, seek to solve the problem of 5-year-old children that “can’t sit still” in a kindergarten classroom.

It's called Ritalin you dumbasses.

#7 Fannie Mae is about to ask the federal government for another $4.6 billion bailout, and it will almost certainly get it.

If a business can't keep from going under, they shouldn't be in business.

#8 The federal government once spent 30 million dollars on a program that was designed to help Pakistani farmers produce more mangos.

Yay, help the terroists grow mangos (said as sarcastically as possible)

#9 The U.S. Department of Agriculture once gave researchers at the University of New Hampshire $700,000 to study methane gas emissions from dairy cows.

WTF? They actually spent that much to study farts? IDIOTS!!!

#10 According to USA Today, 13 different government agencies “fund 209 different science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) education programs — and 173 of those programs overlap with at least one other program.”

It's funny how smart people can be so stupid.

#11 A total of $615,000 was given to the University of California at Santa Cruz to digitize photos, T-shirts and concert tickets belonging to the Grateful Dead.

What the hell does that have to do with anything? That makes no sence at all.

#12 China lends us more money than any other foreign nation, but that didn’t stop our government from spending 17.8 million dollars on social and environmental programs for China.

How about we STOP BORROWING MONEY FROM COMMUNISTS, and QUIT GIVING THEM MONEY TOO!!!

#13 The U.S. government once spent 2.6 million dollars to train Chinese prostitutes to drink responsibly.

I don't think whores care if the drink too much seeing how they already have no respect for their bodies. Just saying.

#14 One professor at Stanford University was given $239,100 to study how Americans use the Internet to find love.

Great, do you want to study how we use it to make love to? (lol, that one cracked me up. )

#15 The U.S. Postal Service spent $13,500 on a single dinner at Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse.

The USPS can't even understand what FRAGILE means, why do they deserve that?

#16 The National Science Foundation once spent $216,000 to study whether or not politicians “gain or lose support by taking ambiguous positions”.

I could have done that for free you morons.

#17 A total of $1.8 million was spent on a “museum of neon signs” in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Thats just plain stupid.

#18 The federal government spends 25 billion dollars a year maintaining federal buildings that are either unused or totally vacant.

Why the hell would they do that? Either use the building, or sell it.

#19 U.S. farmers are given a total of $2 billion each year for not farming their land.

I hate when we give people money for being lazy

#20 The U.S. government handed one Tennessee library $5,000 for the purpose of hosting a series of video game parties.

How the hell fo you spend that much on video games, and why the hell is that something a library shoud do?

#21 A few years ago the government spent $123,050 on a Mother’s Day Shrine in Grafton, West Virginia. It turns out that Grafton only has a population of a little more than 5,000 people.

Stupuidity at it's finest.

#22 One professor at Dartmouth University was given $137,530 to create a “recession-themed” video game entitled “Layoff”.

Worst game ever.

#23 According to the Heritage Foundation, the U.S. military spent “$998,798 shipping two 19-cent washers from South Carolina to Texas and $293,451 sending an 89-cent washer from South Carolina to Florida”.

Try using a laundromat, or at least buying the washer in the state it's going to. It tends to be a lot cheaper that way.

#24 The U.S. Department of Agriculture once shelled out $30,000 to a group of farmers to develop a tourist-friendly database of farms that host guests for overnight “haycations”.

NO ONE, and I mean NO ONE wants to do that.

#25 The National Institutes of Health paid researchers $400,000 to find out why gay men in Argentina engage in risky sexual behavior when they are drunk.

The same reason straight men engage in risky behavor when they are drunk. That will be $400,000 please.

#26 The National Institutes of Health also once spent $442,340 to study the behavior of male prostitutes in Vietnam.

I'm pretty sure their behavior is not that hard to figure out.

#27 The National Institutes of Health loves to spend our tax money on really bizarre things. The NIH once spent $800,000 in “stimulus funds” to study the impact of a “genital-washing program” on men in South Africa.

What the hell? You put soap on a wash cloth, and you put the wash cloth on your......

#28 According to the Washington Post, 1,271 different government organizations work on government programs related to counterterrorism and homeland security.

Please leave the counterterrorism to Homeland Secrity, the FBI, the CIA, and the military.

#29 The U.S. government spent $100,000 on a “Celebrity Chef Fruit Promotion Road Show in Indonesia”.

Why? Why the hell should they spen tax payers money on something like that?

#30 The feds once gave Alaska Airlines $500,000 “to paint a Chinook salmon” on the side of a Boeing 737.

Once again, why? That helps no one, and wastes a lot of money.

Well? Did it work? Would doping the birds make quail season more populous?

Right, "mangoes"; I'm sure they want to grow "mangoes" to process into opium.

#13 The U.S. government once spent 2.6 million dollars to train Chinese prostitutes to drink responsibly.
Must've been a visit by some congress critters.

#19 U.S. farmers are given a total of $2 billion each year for not farming their land.
I have never really understood this program. They should pay them to do USDA research in their fields like they do at MSU.

#23 According to the Heritage Foundation, the U.S. military spent “$998,798 shipping two 19-cent washers from South Carolina to Texas and $293,451 sending an 89-cent washer from South Carolina to Florida”.

I'm not sure you really got the gist of this one, but i support your sentiment.

#30 The feds once gave Alaska Airlines $500,000 “to paint a Chinook salmon” on the side of a Boeing 737.
As long as it is part of a program to lure bears out to sea to drown or invade China, I am OK with it.

lol, it's been a long week. That's even worse! Why the hell would they do that? They could have sent them through the mail (overnight delivery) for a few bucks.
