Hooray! Goverment Wastes $100k On Video Game About Hotcoldwetdry And Gender

When conservatives talk about responsible spending and limited government, this is an example of what we’re talking about. It’s also a good example of Government being in the business of propaganda

(Daily Caller) A taxpayer-funded computer game produced by Spelman College features a black female protagonist battling the evil forces of climate change and gender issues.

Spelman College, a historically black women’s college in Atlanta, won a $100,000 grant from the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) to create an interactive computer game featuring a black female superhero. The game, which is called “HERadventure,” will be released on March 8 in celebration of International Women’s Day.

Spelman College did not respond to requests for comment, but a press release from the college describes the game as “a science fiction-based, multimedia platform project that… tackles social issues that permeate the daily reality of many women.”

What a fantastic use of taxpayer money! Some might say “it’s only $100,000, a drop in the bucket compared to what Los Federales spend.” True. Then add this to other wasteful projects and pork, and we’re talking about “real” money. Will the profits from the sale of this game…..ha, made myself laugh, like there will be any profits….reimburse the government taxpayer?

“Although it is the smorgasbord of politically correct elements that makes this project entertaining to write about, the bottom line is that the government has taken $100,000 from the taxpayers and given it to someone to develop a video game,” wrote Jeryl Bier of Speak With Authority, a conservative blog.

If the makers of the game were serious, they would have given up their fossil fueled lifestyles, sold their cars, and used the proceeds to make it. Or, better yet, not make it, because it causes the usage of lots of electricity to produce it and play it.

The Feds spend 130 MILLION each year on trying to get teenagers not to have sex. Tell me that isn’t a waste of money.

PUBLIC NOTICE: I am going to skip the obvious response here of “if only your parents had listened.”

The Feds spend 130 MILLION each year on trying to get teenagers not to have sex. Tell me that isn’t a waste of money.

Yet the Feds spend far more on teaching other methods of birth control. Teaching abstinence has been shown to be as effective in preventing pregnancies as other methods. (With the benefit of course that it is the only 100% effective method of preventing pregnancies.)

You lose.

Again.

Such violence.

Feds shouldn’t be involved in any sex education at all. That’s the job of local and state governments… and especially the parents.

Leave the Feds to only deal with military, interstate travel and commerce, international commerce, and DEFENDING the constitution – not attacking it. THAT’S IT. That’s all they should do.
