Where do our tax dollars go?

Did you know that our stupid government paid NIH $4,658,865 to tell them whether or not drinking more results in more trips to the ER. Surprise. Yeppers. It does.

You know....I would have gladly told them that for about 1/4 as money.

You know what else? Bob Dylan, songwriter of the 60s is a sculptor. Our State Dept. paid him almost $85,000 for a statue outside the U.S. Embassy in Mozambique. It turns out that every time our government builds an office in a foreign country, they earmark .05% of the cost of the building for a sculpture to sit outside for the government employees to enjoy. Or ignore. The higher the cost of the building, the more they can spend on art.

Hmmm.
