You would think that once we were out of Vietnam, we could stop spending money on Vietnam.
You would also think that the Department of Health and Human Services would have better places to spend millions of dollars especially considering the shape Medicare is in.
The Department of Health and Human Services is spending $2,797,979 on a study that brings television to more than a dozen remote villages in Vietnam to study its impact on their culture and reproductive behavior.
In cooperation with the Vietnam government, we have selected 14 villages in a remote, mountainous area of Vietnam that currently lacks electricity, according to the grant description for Television and International Family Change: A Randomized Experiment.
Treatment villages will receive televisions and generators with gasoline to operate the televisions. Control villages will not receive generators or televisions.
The principal investigator of the study, Dr. Rukmalie Jayakody of the Penn State Population Research Center, tells CNSNews.com that while groundwork for the study began in 2010, the televisions and generators were just installed this past August.
Can we have a study in which we take away money from government bureaucrats in the United States while using government bureaucrats in Vietnam as a control group to see which country goes bankrupt faster?
Instead we’re funding the broadcast of Communist propaganda to rural Vietnamese villages like the anniversary celebration of the Communist Party pictured above.
I’m surprised he isn’t spending on propaganda here.
Can we have our country back? This government is far from of the people and it sure ain’t for the people.
The televisions used in the study will only receive four channels. What villages have access to is not cable television or satellite television, but just Vietnam TV, Jayakody says.
One is really a news channel, one is a sports channel, one is a mix of entertainment and a little bit of education. For example, if I was a farmer, what should I feed my pig to make my pig healthy? kind of things, and then the fourth channel is also a mix of entertainment and news, Jayakody says.
He is, billions.
We need to have a study on how long the government will last without our tax dollars.

Oh no, can’t let the proles know there is a world
out there. Wouldn’t they be better off with Fox news,
Sports illustrated and Home Improvement?
I hear the Montagnards are holding out for Duck Dynasty. :)
A duck wouldn’t last long around them, it’d be
Plus they’d bury the eggs.
Globalism and Communism go hand in hand
It is something I would expect from our own communist administration.
