Feds Spent $800,000 of Economic Stimulus on African Genital-Washing Program
CNS News ^ | September 13, 2010

Posted on 09/13/2010 7:43:00 AM PDT by La Lydia

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...

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 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?”

Coates, who was unavailable for comment, directed CNSNews.com to ask grant-related questions of his assistant, Darya Freedman, who did not respond. The NIMH also declined to respond to CNSNews.com’s question.

Paying for this from Stimulus Funds probably is truth in advertising. I bet the field researcher found it highly stimulating.

When I was in grammar school in the '50s, we were taught that Africa was a "sleeping" giant. It would soon awaken and have a profound affect on the world.
Well, here we are fifty years later and the ignorant SOBs still don't even know how to wash their b*lls.

White whimpy guy:
"Hi, I'm Chad Thorkwhittle and this is my friend, Sissy. We're going to show you how to wash your johnson after sex. Sissy will have sex with you, and I'll wash you off. With my hands, and warm, soapy water. Then later you and I can go to IKEA and pick out drapes together."

Barry’s megalomania is raging so far out of control that he keeps digging deeper to find the most ridiculous ways to spend money. Wouldn’t be surprised if he commanded his ACORN shell groups to give happy ending genital washings to voters in exchange for voting Dem in November.

The greatest killer in Africa is still diarrhea and other diseases realted to unclean drinking water. Wonder how many water purification stations could have built with that kind of money?

Americans are being used as tax slaves for the world. After we're done supporting the world, we're allowed to keep a few dollars for our own needs. Just try to put your own family first, and see what happens to you.

Look around. The U.S. is no longer a free country. It's people are in bondage by it's own government, and there is no escape.

“AIDS researchers have been unsuccessful in convincing most adult African men to undergo circumcision”

I think you’d be unsuccessful convincing most adult men anywhere to undergo circumcision.

If it ain’t broke ...
