There seems to be a never-ending supply of stupid ways that our government finds to spend our tax dollars.
CNS News has the latest example …
“The U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) is planning to spend $3.35 million to 'improve the quality of media content and strengthen the media’s capacity to meet professional standards.'”
The kicker is that this is to improve media quality, not in America, but in Armenia!
“No American media organizations are eligible for the grant, but 'government controlled and government owned organizations' in Armenia are encouraged to apply.”
If our tax dollars are going to be used to improve professional media standards, why not start within our own country? I don't think that would be a proper use of our tax dollars, but it just goes to show the ridiculous ways the government chooses to spend our money.
