OBAMA STIMULUS WATCH: $800,000 Goes To African HIV Genital-Washing Program

Further evidence that we are Rome.  The American empire is burning, bankrupt and primarily stupid.  We have spent $814 billion that belongs to future generations, all so that Obama's party (which is quite similar to the other useless party) might hold onto a few more seats in November.  Sounds about right.  What time is American Idol on tonight?

Politicians have huge egos, bankrupt souls, and don't care much about anything beyond re-election.  They hate recessions ultimately because they fear a voter backlash and the possibility of being sent back home from cozy Washington.  So they are generally prepared to do anything to avoid/prevent/mitigate the process.  Such is why they will vote to spend money whether they have it or not.  Throw trillions in cash at the problem, shy away from fixing the structural issues, and maybe it can be held together long enough to be re-elected for another term.

Too bad the trillions are coming from you and your kids (and grandkids) and they never asked for your permission. Throw the bums out in 2010.  That is the only option.


The study is ongoing and if successful will lead to more studies:

From CNS News

If most of the men in the study wash their genitals after sex, are willing to do so after the study ends, and report that their partners accept the regimen, the researchers will develop another study to see if the “penile cleansing procedure” actually works to prevent HIV infections.

“If we find that men are able to practice consistent washing practices after sex, we will plan to test whether this might protect men from becoming HIV infected in a later study,” the grant says.

The study’s lead investigator Dr. Thomas J. Coates was the fourth highest-funded researcher in the country in 2002 and is currently conducting HIV research on three continents.

More detail:

(CNSNews.com) – The National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH), a division of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), spent $823,200 of economic stimulus funds in 2009 on a study by a UCLA research team to teach uncircumcised African men how to wash their genitals after having sex.

The genitalia-washing program is part of a larger $12-million UCLA study examining how to better encourage Africans to undergo voluntary HIV testing and counseling – however, only the penis-washing study received money from the 2009 economic stimulus law. The washing portion of the study is set to end in 2011.

“NIH Announces the Availability of Recovery Act Funds for Competitive Revision Applications,” the grant abstract states. “We propose to evaluate the feasibility of a post-coital genital hygiene study among men unwilling to be circumcised in Orange Farm, South Africa.”

Because AIDS researchers have been unsuccessful in convincing most adult African men to undergo circumcision, the UCLA study proposes to determine whether researchers can develop an after-sex genitalia-washing regimen that they can then convince uncircumcised African men to follow.

“The aim of the proposed feasibility study is to evaluate the feasibility and acceptability of a post-coital male genital hygiene procedure, which participants will be asked to practice immediately post-coitus or at least 12 hours after,” reads the abstract.

The study’s lead investigator Dr. Thomas J. Coates was the fourth highest-funded researcher in the country in 2002 and is currently conducting HIV research on three continents.

CNSNews.com asked both Coates and NIMH the following question: “The Census Bureau says the median household income in the United States is $52,000. How would you explain to the average American mom and dad -- who make $52,000 per year -- that taxing them to pay for this grant was justified?”

WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama celebrated the opening of an advanced battery plant in Michigan on Monday as a critical boost for hybrid and electric cars — and a success for his administration's economic stimulus program.

But even as mass-produced advanced batteries start rolling off assembly lines, costs are high for consumers, and hurdles remain.

Stimulus: The One Word The Obama Administration Now Avoids

(Sept. 7) -- It's summer that's supposed to be the time for reruns. So with summer ending, why is President Obama offering up repeats in hopes of getting the economy moving again?

On Monday, President Barack Obama announced a proposal to spend $50 billion more on transportation to rebuild roads, railways and runways. And on Wednesday, he's set to announce a proposal to permanently extend the business research and development tax credit.

In announcing the transportation plan, Obama told an audience in Milwaukee that "This will not only create jobs immediately, it's also going to make our economy hum over the long haul."

But the stimulus bill from last year included an almost identical $48 billion in extra transportation spending, along with those same promises -- rebuild the nation's infrastructure for tomorrow, and create jobs today.

So far, it hasn't exactly worked out that way.

The sad part is that if everyone in our country was to see all this crap going on with our dollars, they could realy give a shit about it. As long as thier shows on TV are still on tonight and thier cell phones still work in the morning.

Nobody gives a shit anymore about anything. I think the goverment program is called "Dumming Down the American People".......

I got me a study.......give Dar one million dollars cash, and see how much is left after I die. Most of it. Im to scared to spend any money on anything that is'ent nesseray for fear of running out before Im Dead......? I will have 2 shots left at the end. One BIG Shot Wiskie, and one shot lead ?

Henry Ford never spent a minute worrying about washing African dicks and the Jews taught us Henry Ford was not worthy of further study. Obama (and Bush) knew nothing about "creating" jobs but they were elected.

So why do we have these problems now?

Look who put this creature in charge and NEVER TRUST THEM OR THEIR FRIENDS ever again. Same for the last guy. The Council on Foreign Relations MUST GO. See who their bosses are and ship-can the lot. Boycott AP, Reuters, ABC, NBC, CNN, ABC, CBS, MSNBC, CNBC, and probably anybody who feels they should wear a parental approved neck-tie, especially on TV. Tiger balm on the eyelids keeps one alert and at attention just fine.

@ DB and Texas Dar. The easy answer to why the redux campaign strategy for Obama is "Hope Sells".  Look at Tony Robins and all the others just like him.  A little of that with a bit putting people on their knees because he could.  Gets anyone seriously effected by it all asking, if not begging, for help.  Not all people would forego the benefits they didn't get or are still fighting for would vote on the likes of Ron Paul.  

It's hard to be tough when your down and out.  I agree though.  It still blows my mind that people are behind him.     

I found several good points in this link. Regarding one of the many videos. One for Mitt R.,  though I'm not a Mitt fan, I must say it is really good.
