Where some of our taxpayer funded economic STIMULUS dollars are going !!!

I saw this article - specifically, the portion of the article that I'm going to share with you, and said to myself, "WTF, who's responsible for this stupid %$#@*% ___t?"

From the August 4th Issue of the St Louis Business Journal...

Two St. Louis-area stimulus projects made Republican U.S. Sens. John McCain and Tom Coburn’s list of “100 stimulus projects that give taxpayers the blues.”

One particular project....... totaling $180,935, ranked 95th on the list and involves researchers at the University of Missouri in Columbia studying a better way to freeze rat sperm. Once you deep-freeze laboratory rat sperm, it’s less useful when unfrozen, the report says. Calling it an “urgent need,” Mizzou scientists received stimulus money “to develop freezing protocols for the epididymal rat sperm which would allow reconstitution of genetics by using standard artificial insemination and in-vitro fertilization methods,” according to the report.
