U.S. Taxpayers Forced to Spend $50,000 Training Female Vloggers in India

Big Government spends our money to solve our problems. One problem America faces as a nation is that there is not enough female vlogging in India. No worries; the Feds are on the case:

The State Department is spending $50,000 for conferences aimed at getting more female bloggers in India.

The project, “SHE Vlogs: Video Blogging Training for Women Entrepreneurs in North India,” will develop a “vlogging training curriculum” and locate speakers for the workshops in three cities in northern India.

According to a grant announcement,

“The SHE VLOGS program seeks to arm North Indian women entrepreneurs with digital skills to enhance business marketing and branding strategy through a series of three video-blogging (vlogging) workshops for entrepreneurs.”

If we spent our money ourselves, we might do so frivolously, and there would continue to be a shortage of female vlogging in northern India.

On a tip from Jester.

    OK, this program MIGHT be a “good thing”, but why is it OUR problem? I doubt that the Indian government is too concerned about female bloggers, so why should the U.S. government get involved?

    If supporters can’t answer either of these questions, the American tax-payer should not be forced to finance this boondoggle.

    It is serendipitous that I was just wondering how to solve the female blogging problem in Mumbai. At least the left hasn’t decided to immigrate them to America on “Student Blogger” visas. Yet!

  3. Mr. Freemarket says:

    The simple fact is that the State Department can justify virtually any spending for any reason. And “higher-ups” when presented with the issue that this is a waste of money and time, can counter “it’s not that much money that we should be concerned about it.”

    And they have a point.

    After all, didn’t Hillary’s State Department lose about 6 Billion dollars with zero consequences????

    It’s a twofer Dave. They are brown and female, bonus virtue signaling points…

    The fact that they are not American also allows us to right some of the wrongs of American capitalism and oppression, too.

    Don’t forget what the American cavalry did to those poor Indians! And how we stole their land! /s

    Behind every such program is a bureaucracy only too happy to accommodate in the dispensing of the funds. This is after all, their raison d’etre. No boondoggles, no job (with cushy working conditions, benefits and a pension.)

  8. […] female entrepreneurs who can’t make it to India for U.S.-funded vlogger training have an educational opportunity closer to home: the Feminist Business School, which offers a single […]

    And….we besmirched the name of Indians everywhere!!!

    My younger son is working 6 or 7 jobs now in order to pay off his college debt with what the government lets him keep, and (in CT anyways) my son pays for the college debt of illegals and pseudo-refugees with the money he earned but that the government takes out of his paychecks.

    But no worries.

    The government of India will probably be sending him money to help. /s

    Should this not be their own government’s responsibility? Unless this is just a CIA recruitment drive.

    What does it cost the government to fly Pelosi back and forth DC to California? $50K is chump change to the Obamas. To think that a $50K will only cost $50K is like listening to Jonathan Gruber tell his “truths”.
