I have never been a proponent of Big Gubmint.
The Constitution of the United States clearly stipulates that the power of the Federales is supposed to be very limited in scope – securing and defending our borders, making treaties and a few other things. All other powers are to be relegated to the various states.
That said, I have no problem with some sort of Gubmint funded entities doing stuff like medical research that could (and often do) lead to treatments and cures for serious and infectious diseases.
That said, it really frosts my gazebos when our tax dollars are used for obviously stoopid shit.
Did you know that $385,000 of your hard earned contributions to the United States Treasury have been wasted on some very socially relevant programs like studying duck penises? Whoever came up with must have been thinking to himself, “Climate change, schmliate change! I just fleeced the United States Gubmint of 385Gs for the advanced study of duck dicks! Go suck Swamp Donkey Nut Sacks, Al Gore!”
Ahhhhh, but pride goeth before the fall! Or in this case, the duck dicks go before the lezbeans!
