Mind-Blowing Recent Examples of Federal Government Waste

Senator Tom Coburn (R-OK) has released his annual list of government spending projects. These projects tend to be funded by the countless federal agencies that crowd the Debt Star without direct approval by Congress, thereby avoiding accountability to those of us left to finance them. CNS News has collected a few samples:

• Swedish massages for rabbits: $387,000
• Teaching Mountain Lions to Ride a Treadmill: $856,000
• Studying how many times “hangry” people stab a voodoo doll: $331,000
• Studying the gambling habits of monkeys: $171,000
• Producing the children’s musical: Zombie in Love: $10,000
• Funding a “Stoner Symphony”: $15,000
• Subsidizing Alpaca Poop: $50,000
• Synchronized Swimming for Sea Monkeys: $307,524
• Produce a “Hallucinatory” Roosevelt/Elvis show: $10,000
• Funding Climate Change Alarmist Video Game: $5.2 million
• Teaching Kids to Laugh: $47,000
• Developing a real-life Iron Man Suit: $80 million
• Tweeting at Terrorists: $3 million
• Predicting the End of Humanity: $30,000
• Funding Kids Dressing Like Fruits and Vegetables: $5 million
• Help Parents Counter Kids’ Refusals to Eat Fruits and Veggies: $804,254
• Lost electronic devices from NASA: $1.1 million

Not even a Supreme Court Justice could find the constitutional authority to spend our confiscated money on any of this demented crapola.

Meanwhile, the national debt rockets toward $18 trillion, a number too vast for the human mind to properly comprehend, with no sign of slowing despite the steady upward creep of taxation.

Money Down Drain
Our money.

    Cloward/Piven.
    Obama and his fellow travellers really are working to destroy the U.S.A.
    It’s just astonishing that so many commie Americans are working so hard at crapping in and setting fire to their own country.
    They are completely insane…and evil.

    Phew, I was wondering when those Mountain Lions would learn how to use a treadmill. Resting easier tonight. Where can I send more of my hard earned money for this valuable research?

    I always like to post a response to such articles as this by spoofing some responses of my own. I always wish to give a ridiculous satirical ‘comedy’ reply whenever I can by exaggerating what Libtards do with some creative ‘joke’ that I invented.
    But in this case I can’t.
    Truth is stranger than fiction. The above examples are more bizarre than anything that I could have thought up by myself.
    Now that is truly tragic!
