I’m told the administration is filing this under “erections saved or created”:

The NBC Investigative Unit has raised questions about two grants totaling nearly $1.5 million dollars distributed to the University of California San Francisco. The money was part of the federal stimulus program and went to studies into the erectile dysfunction of overweight middle aged men and the accurate reporting of someone’s sexual history.

This is part of our ongoing series of investigations by the NBC Bay Area Investigative Unit into who got federal stimulus dollars, and why some projects did not break ground more than two years after receiving the grant.

The Investigative Unit looked closely at the federal government’s decision to spend nearly $1.5 million dollars of taxpayer money, money that came here to California. Grant number 1R01HD056950-01A2 was among the thousands of grants funded, receiving $1.2 million dollars. This grant studied how to improve the accuracy of how people responded to questions about their sexual history.

The government, which consists to a great degree of overweight middle aged men, just happens to throw our money at a study about erectile dysfunction in overweight middle aged men? What a coincidence.

And what’s with the “accuracy” of questions about sexual history? Haven’t these idiots ever thought to simply apply the “rule of three”?

    "According to the site, the grant produced 0.85 jobs."

    Noteworthy this was an NBC affiliate's hard hitting journalistic investigation. Where were these clowns in '08?

    Isnt it funny how the dems always claim the GOP wants to be in your bedroom; yet it is liberal administrations that dole out tax $'s to find out what is going on in your bedroom.

    O/T but funny. the NYTCBS poll shows 67% of those polled believe that Obama came out for political reasons, so now Team Obama is claiming that the poll was biased.

    I am waiting for a Team Obama poll to come out showing the one in the lead 99% to 1%.

    Very interesting post! At first I thought it was going to be an ultra austere lecture on deli meat lol.But it was very informative and I had no idea that deli meat was in some ways unhealthy. It was also remarkable to learn how you saved so much money by skipping the deli and buying a whole usa.

    TS,

    Something I've long maintained. S_xual inadequacy/repression amongst uptight, overweight, bible thumping conservative men has remained a constant in the theme to dehumanize us. Painting your opponent as impotent is as old as warfare itself.

    Why don't Progs just airdrop super-sized rubbers over Red States?

    They are afraid that we would actually be able to use them….lol

  7. Marshall_Will on May 15th, 2012 1:46 pm

    Yeah, I got yer' Stimulus Dollars, hanging! ( Dangling Fury..! )

    We really need to focus, post-election. Barring some sort of Prog Miracle ( wait.., they're aethiests! ) this is all over but the crying.

    The unfortunate problem becomes, Mitt won't be able to stand before the American people and say… I've got this 'sheriff' and uh… "Sheriff Marco" is one tough cookie. No one MESSES with Sheriff Marco, so you can be sure every dollar will be spent wisely!" The bloom's off the rose there?

    Yep phase one is the election. Phase two is holding their feet to the fire (I can see the rally cries now…remember the Lugar!).

  9. jeffythequick on May 15th, 2012 2:08 pm

    Another issue to consider…

    I can't wait for the November 6 poll about who should be President on 1/20/2013. It'll probably be biased as well.

  10. backwoodsconsr on May 15th, 2012 2:47 pm

    The Democrats still live in fear of hanging chads.

  11. Marshall_Will on May 15th, 2012 2:52 pm

    Suppose this is how it works from here on out. The 'election' itself becomes a mere formality, in effect decided months ahead.

    OK, whatever, at least now we know the rulez? Instead of Friday Doc Dumps we'll get Monday Agency Dumps. And I'm GOOD w/ that…

  12. SignPainterGuy on May 15th, 2012 7:13 pm

    Hanging chads were their own creation; why are they so afraid of them ? Are they not adequate enough to determine psychically what a voter must have meant to do ?

  13. backwoodsconsr on May 15th, 2012 7:26 pm

    The story is the chads were hung and Gore got screwed big time. Never mind that members of the media were allowed to examine the ballots after the election and found that if Gore had gotten the recount he wanted using the standards he was asking for, Bush would have won by an even larger margin than he did.

  14. backwoodsconsr on May 15th, 2012 7:29 pm

    A lot of people also forget that the news media wrongly created the impression that Gore had won by calling the results for Florida prematurely. The rush to be the first to report the results bit them.

  15. SignPainterGuy on May 15th, 2012 8:16 pm

    Little known fact; The NYT and the WaPo sent their own people to the dim controlled FL districts to count the votes and examine the chad issue. Not only did they determine that GWB won, but he won by an even wider margin than was officially tallied. They also determined that the FL Sec. of State performed her job properly by declaring the winner within 30 days after the vote.

    Wasn`t it Peter Jennings of ABC who jumped the gun ?

    I think the Goracle has never gotten over his defeat; he`s STILL pissed !

  16. backwoodsconsr on May 15th, 2012 8:34 pm

    I've found that a lot of airhead Dem voters (redundant, I know) still think Gore won. They're still pissed too, Of course, that's the normal state for liberals.

  17. SignPainterGuy on May 15th, 2012 8:42 pm

    Do I remember correctly; Gore won the nat`l popular vote, but lost the Electoral College vote ?

  18. backwoodsconsr on May 15th, 2012 9:09 pm

    You are correct, sir. That's probably part of the cause of frustration, but that will occasionally happen with the Electoral College, which I do not favor abolishing.

  19. SignPainterGuy on May 15th, 2012 10:23 pm

    Nor do I !

    Many who oppose the EC do not realize that without it, the popular vote would rule the day, but while that sounds like the most fair thing, as few as 10 major cities could decide the nat`l election. I just can`t imagine being satisfied by the choices of Chicago, NY, SF, LA and a few other very lib cities.
