    $39,643,352 worth of NIH funding that could have gone to the Ebola vaccine

    The National Institutes of Health (NIH) has spent more than $39 million on obese lesbians, origami condoms, texting drunks, and dozens of other projects that could have been scrapped in favor of developing an Ebola vaccine.

    “Frankly, if we had not gone through our 10-year slide in research support, we probably would have had a vaccine in time for this that would’ve gone through clinical trials and would have been ready,” said NIH Director Francis Collins, blaming budget cuts for his agency’s failure to develop a vaccine for the deadly virus.

    However, the Washington Free Beacon has uncovered $39,643,352 worth of NIH studies within the past several years that have gone to questionable research.

    For instance, the agency has spent $2,873,440 trying to figure out why lesbians are obese, and $466,642 on why fat girls have a tough time getting dates. Another $2,075,611 was spent encouraging old people to join choirs.

    Millions have gone to “text message interventions,” including a study where researchers sent texts to drunks at the bar to try to get them to stop drinking. The project received an additional grant this year, for a total of $674,590.

    I must say, obese lesbians, origami condoms, texting drunks, and dozens of other projects are extremely important, for companies can use the results of the researches to produce useful stuff for these category of people, earn money and pay more taxes that would be spend on financing more of such projects.
    But knowing that the researches of Ebola vaccine were stopped by the Pentagon in 2012 due to lack of financing… Doesn’t it make these sums of money spent on origami condoms look a bit of sacrilegious?

    There aren't enough Ebola victims who vote.
