Wasteful Government Spending – Grants and Studies

  Within our mammoth sized government with its myriad of agencies and departments, are endless examples of wasteful spending. Here are just two that caught my attention today. Feds Studying How to Use Twitter For ‘Depression Surveillance’ The University of California, San Diego (UCSD) began a study financed by the National Institutes of Health last month that will provide “population level depression monitoring” through the social media site. The project, “Utilizing Social Media as a Resource for Mental Health Surveillance,” is costing taxpayers $82,800. While Twitter has been used by government agencies, such as the Secret Service and Department of … Continue reading

National Parks Re-Open – With a Catch

From Yahoo News and AP: FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. (AP) — Tourists returned to the Grand Canyon on Saturday after Arizona officials along with several counterparts agreed to a federal government plan to reopen national parks, which had been closed as a result of the partial government shutdown. But the Obama administration’s OK to reopen tourist areas across the nation came with a big caveat: States must foot the bill with money they likely won’t see again. So far, Utah, Colorado, South Dakota, Arizona and New York have agreed to open parks that had been closed since the beginning of the month. … Continue reading

Liberal Superiority. (Well, In Their Eyes Anyway).

Sorry for the extended absence. We have a plateful going on here at the Casa Del Clyde, which has prevented me from doing much. So, with that being said, I thought I would just pound out some thoughts on the left. 1. Liberals think they are the smartest people. OK, let’s have a look. Here we have a president, who will NOT negotiate on one of his MAJOR duties, and that is  budget items. He has not submitted a single budget since taking office. The Smartest Man On The Planet has NOT done so for ONE reason. He doesn’t know the … Continue reading

Obama is Killing America’s Superpower Status

From Con Coughlin at Telegraph.co.uk: US government shutdown: Barack Obama is presiding over the end of America’s superpower status For a country that is supposed to be the most powerful in the world, the fact that Americans have today woken up to find large swathes of their nation closed for business is humiliating. Thanks to President Barack Obama obduracy over his flagship healthcare policy, Democrats and Republicans have failed to reach agreement in Congress on the federal budget, forcing the US Government to close down for the first time in 17 years, with around 700,000 federal workers being placed on indefinite leave. … Continue reading

Now HERE Is ANOTHER GREAT Idea.

I’m ALL for using THIS approach to dealing with the insane left. Found this at Breitbart.com.  Damn, the more I read it, the BETTER I like it.   Weaponizing Comedy in the Culture War Against Liberalism.   THESE guys were FUNNY. THESE guys are just ridiculous.

Climatologist Dr. … Continue reading
