Some of the stupid things our tax money pays for:
In 2011, the National Institutes of Health spent $592,527 on a study that sought to figure out once and for all why chimpanzees throw poop.
The National Institutes of Health has spent more than 5 million dollars on a website called Sexpulse that is targeted at “men who use the Internet to seek sex with men”. According to Fox News, the website “includes pornographic images of homosexual sex as well as naked and scantily clad men” and features “a Space Invaders-style interactive game that uses a penis-shaped blaster to shoot down gay epithets.”
The General Services Administration spent $822,751 on a “training conference” for 300 west coast employees at the M Resort and Casino in Las Vegas.
If you can believe it, the federal government has actually spent $750,000 on a new soccer field for detainees held at Guantanamo Bay.
The U.S. Agency for International Development spent 10 million dollars to create a version of “Sesame Street” for Pakistani television.
The National Science Foundation spent $198,000 on a University of California-Riverside study that explored “motivations, expectations and goal pursuit in social media.” One of the questions the study sought an answer to was the following: “Do unhappy people spend more time on Twitter or Facebook?”
The federal government actually has spent $175,587 “to determine if cocaine makes Japanese quail engage in sexually risky behavior”.
In 2011, $147,138 was given to the American Museum of Magic in Marshall, Michigan. Their best magic trick is making U.S. taxpayer dollars disappear.
In 2011, the federal government gave $550,000 toward the making of a documentary about how rock and roll contributed to the fall of the Soviet Union.
The National Institutes of Health has contributed $55,382 toward a study of “hookah smoking habits” in the country of Jordan.
The federal government gave $606,000 to researchers at Columbia University to study how heterosexuals use the Internet to find love.
A total of $133,277 was recently given to the International Center for the History of Electronic Games for video game preservation. The International Center for the History of Electronic Games says that it “collects, studies, and interprets video games, other electronic games, and related materials and the ways in which electronic games are changing how people play, learn, and connect with each other, including across boundaries of culture and geography.”
The federal government has given approximately $3 million to researchers at the University of California at Irvine to fund their research into video games such as World of Warcraft.
In 2011, the National Science Foundation gave one team of researchers$149,990 to create a video game called “RapidGuppy” for cell phones and other mobile devices.
In 2011, $936,818 was spent developing an online soap opera entitled “Diary of a Single Mom”. The show “chronicles the lives and challenges of three single mothers and their families trying to get ahead despite obstacles that all single mothers face, such as childcare, healthcare, education, and finances.”
The federal government once shelled out $2.6 million to train Chinese prostitutes to drink responsibly.
The U.S. Postal Service once spent $13,500 for a single dinner at Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse.
In 2011, the Air Force Academy completed work on an outdoor worship area for pagans and Wiccans. The worship area consists of “a small Stonehenge-like circle of boulders with [a] propane fire pit” and it cost $51,474to build. The worship area is “for the handful of current or future cadets whose religions fall under the broad category of ‘Earth-based’, which includes Wiccans, druids and pagans.” At this point, that only includes 3 current students at the Air Force Academy.
The National Institutes of Health once gave researchers $400,000 to study why gay men in Argentina engage in risky sexual behavior when they are drunk.
The National Institutes of Health once gave researchers $442,340 to study the behavior of male prostitutes in Vietnam.
The National Institutes of Health once spent $800,000 in “stimulus funds” to study the impact of a “genital-washing program” on men in South Africa.
The National Science Foundation recently spent $200,000 on a study that examined how voters react when politicians change their stances on climate change.
At this point, China is holding over a trillion dollars of U.S. government debt. But that didn’t stop the United States from sending 17.8 million dollars in foreign aid to China in 2011.

An REIT is a type of real estate company that is modeled after . They were created by Congress in 1960 to give all Americans the chance to in income producing real estate, much the same way as we can and bonds through mutual funds. Income producing real estate refers to land and the improvements on it. REIT's can invest in the properties themselves, generating income through the collection of rent, or they can invest in mortgages or securities tied to the properties, helping to finance the properties and generate interest income. It is the mortgage security avenue that Iron Mountain is interested in.
But again, why would an organization like Iron Mountain be interested in converting to this when they have built their empire by storing sensitive documents? Any time I need to follow the money to some nefarious sounding deal, I begin looking in one place first.

Continued from Part III, posted on January, 29, 2014.
Amway Co-founders Rich DeVos and Jay VanAndel
I tried to sell Amway products once, but because I am not an effective salesman, my efforts failed. However, while trying, I purchased some motivational tapes from the company. I didn’t like many but I loved one of them. I learned a lot from it and listened often. One of the two founders of the Amway Corporation, Rich DeVos, spoke in front of a group of about 1,800 young people at the 23rd annual Junior Achievers conference sometime in 1966. You may object to his attitude, and DeVos might not say things the same way today, but the message is “boss, man!”
Last time I ended Part III by saying that Mr. DeVos appreciated the work of the garbage men (now known as ‘sanitation workers’) who came to his house. Here’s his depiction of when he met them one morning… and more…
Rich DeVos, Part IV:
Selling America, by Rich DeVos.
…I had an interesting experience because - - I like garbage men. You wouldn't believe that. Yeah, you can tell that… I’ll tell you that.
But I went out… For four weeks in a row… This fellow comes by at 6:30 in the morning… Because I wanted to meet him I said, “Hi, how are you this morning? I just came out to tell you I appreciate your coming…”
He looked at me and he said, “Are you just getting up, or are you just coming in?” (laughter) He wasn’t sure…
I said, “No, no, really – I just came out to say, ‘hello.’” I said, “I appreciate your coming by."
[To the kids in the audience] Now, if you don’t think you appreciate his coming by (your home) you just let him skip you a couple times. (laughter) You’ll find out how important he is in your life. (laughter)
Inspirational quote, by Rich DeVos.
You know about the fourth time I went out there I said, “I'm just coming out to say hello again. I really mean it. I appreciate your coming. Do you realize how important the work is that you do? What it does for the sanitation of this community? How it protects the health and well-being of all the people?
And he says, “Well, I’ll be damned!” (laughter, then applause)
[To the kids in the audience] Now, I don’t like to use that language, but I portray to you his attitude. He said, “I’ve been picking up garbage for years, man. Nobody ever told me that!” (mild laughter)
And, I’d say to you, “Isn’t it too bad that a fellow American, who’s doing what he’s able to do has had no one tell him how important his work is?
Rich DeVos, a winner’s smile.
He [the man picking up garbage] says [to Rich DeVos], you know, “You’re one in a million.” (To the audience:) Well, I don’t want to be one in a million, and I ask you as you go on to positions of leadership to join me in a crusade of respectability for all your fellow Americans. And I hope you go on to college and get a Ph.D. or whatever it is you’re seeking. But I hope you'll always remember that it doesn’t make you better than the next guy. – It gives you greater responsibility.
I marvel at the Ph.D. who works for us, and he’s a wonderful man. I look at the chemist we have and I notice how helpless they are when it comes to emptying the wastebasket.
And then I look at the people who come to work and [they] work on the line and I look at the school bus driver. Well [some people say], “he’s just a bus driver.” And the other people say, “Well, he’s just a businessman.” “He’s just a salesman.” Will we eradicate the word ‘just’ from your vocabulary? Nobody is just an anything! He’s a man or a woman doing what he knows how to do best. That’s the real sign.
Dare to Battle - Rich DeVos.
So, if a guy fixes your car, remember to greet him. Remember to thank him. And if all of us will begin to do this, we can change America. We can break down the barriers between, (in a sarcastic tone:) “I’m better than you.” There’s too much of it! So, let’s join me in the crusade. Let’s remember that the little things [we do and say] make a difference.
This is the end of Part IV
