Don't you love to see how effectively our government spends our tax dollars? Can you believe that there are people who want even MORE of our hard earned dollars to go to our bloated government?

One thing for sure. The bigger the government, the more waste will occur. And when the Feds have $3.6 trillion of Other People's Money to spend, they will waste billions on stuff like this and the GSA parties.


Taxpayers may feel kind of blue when they discover their dollars went to fund a study to determine rats like to bop to the music of Miles Davis while hopped up on cocaine.
The study, which was performed at Albany Medical College, drew jeers from the animal rights group In Defense of Animals and landed it on its top ten list of Real Ridiculous Research.

The study presents a dilemma for the left. Was it racist? Or is oppostion just more anti-science sentiment from the right?

Not sure- were they white mice, or black rats?
