Why starving the beast is the only solution

Liberals, moderates and a few "conservatives" wonder why so many people have come to an attittude of "starve the beast" when it comes to our state and local governments. Here is a great example of why if you don't think we need to starve the beast, you're not paying attention.

The National Institutes of Health (NIH) subsidized a study attempting to find out if a gay man’s penis size has any correlation with his sexual health.

The research, titled “The Association between Penis Size and Sexual Health among Men Who Have Sex with Men,” began in 2006 and surveyed 1,065 gay men. Among its key findings: Those gay men who felt they had small or inadequate penis sizes were more likely to become “bottoms,” or anal receptive, while gay men with larger penises were more likely to identify themselves as “tops,” or anal insertive.

Another discovery from the research: men with smaller penises were more likely to be psychologically troubled than those with larger genitalia. The goal of the study was to understand the “real individual-level consequences of living in a penis-centered society.”

The researchers at Hunter College Center for HIV/AIDS Educational Studies Training (CHEST) got taxpayer money as part of an NIH grant that went to Public Health Solutions and the National Development and Research Institutes, Inc. (NDRI).

NDRI has received taxpayer money since 1985 for “behavioral science research on drug abuse, AIDS and crime.” NIH records show that NDRI has received more than $15 million since 2000.

Sure, $15 million won't balance the budget, but can you imagine the mindset of the multiple morons that approved spending taxpayer money on this study? Until we cut government spending so deeply that waste like this is literally unthinkable, we will not be able to balance our budget.

There are billions tied up in turtle tunnels, sidewalks to nowhere, studies like this, and hundreds of other nonsense that no private company would see the sense in researching. Even if you come up with repeatable results, who gives a damn? Who benefits? Do we get $15 million or any of benefit from knowing this?

If there is some potential benefit, let a private concern fund it. Let a private concern reap the benefits of the garnered results.

There are $billions of discretionary and non-discretionary outlays that just should not be. "Starve the beast" should be the battle cry of conservatives and any tax paying Americans. Even if every one of us carries this mantra, it will be but 1/2 of the electorate.

Did I miss the underlying point to this post?
Is the beast needs to be starved the top beast?
Do we starve the "Penis centered Society" in order to grow our wallets?

A society centered on penises or wallets is a lose lose situation.

Since the study has no applicable action steps, no private charity or entity would fund it.

That's where government comes in to re-allocate dollars towards less efficient programs that would never receive one cent.

I'm amazed Bart wrote that entire post without one reference to Jim or Brent.

I can't believe I didn't mention our resident homosexuals and query them on how penis size affects their pole-smoking and butt jabbing.

I'm getting lazy in my old age.

Woody, I doubt you'd say that to Sequel in a bar. Sure raises the level of discourse.

I would all depend if Sequel called me out for "pole smoking and butt jabbing". If he did, I'd say it loud and clear. I hate to lower myself to his level of discourse but sometimes it is necessary.

Sequel didn't. He thought it was funny your name is 'Woody', given his fascination with logs.

Bart did not, either. His comment was directed at Jim W. and Brent. It's been stated many times by Bart that both are closet homosexuals. Given the research above, there may be some technical difficulties as far as both being the catcher.

from a woman's perspective on a man's assertion of size
It's all relative................

Now I guess that depends on what I've been with, now doesn't it

To clarify

The Anti-Strib fully supports your right to pole-smoke, butt-jab and even Cleveland Steamer other willing adults.

You have to support our right to laugh at the scrotum burn on your chin.

Plus, to quote some very famous philosophers "He said "wood"" he he he.

I'm sorry what's a Cleveland Steamer?


Barthélemy Barbancourt
It's one of Sequel's favorite moves, on a guy of course.

Cleveland Steamer
(1) A Cleveland steamer is the sexual act of doing number 2 on a woman's chest whilst "receiving penile pleasure from friction between the mammaries." Receiving fellatio is also sometimes allowed as a substitute for TFing. It is believed that the "Cleveland" part of the name comes from the fact that the brown stripe left behind resembles the brown stripe on the helmet of the Cleveland Browns football team. There is debate over whether the "steamer" aspect arises from either the fact that steam should rise from the souvenier left behind by a properly executed Cleveland steamer, or that the proper technique involves one rolling back and forth, flattening the aftermath like a steamroller.

(2) A Cleveland steamer is also a breakup technique where one takes a dump on their lover's chest whilst they are sleeping, then covertly exits the house, leaving them to wake in it the morning after. The sexual aspect is noticeably absent in this incarnation of the Cleveland steamer.

Outside of the greater Cleveland metropolitan area I believe this is referred to as a "hot Karl".

I find the Cleveland steamer, and the similar Boston steamer too messy.
I have to go with the Blumpkin.



Nobody
OK,

I'll bite. Blumpkin?


Barthélemy Barbancourt
I had to resist looking it up

I am sure that it will be memorable.

the Urban Dictionary, Nobody. Saying "I'll bite" is hilarious!

You have to wonder who comes up with this stuff

Why you wouldn't even want that is beyond me.
