- Why are we spending your tax dollars on frivolous studies like this?
- Why when we have money to spend on such studies do we feel that agencies and organizations like the National Science Foundation are sacred and immune from tax cuts because of the weighty things they do for our society?
- Why in the world do we have a professor at our hallowed state university wasting his time and our tax dollars (both from the grant and certainly from the dollars we citizens pay him through our taxes) to pursue such inane knowledge?
- Finally, if earmarks are bad (and I believe them to be very bad), are grants provided by a bunch of foundation bureacrats, funded by your tax dollars, any better?
John Hibbing and Harvey Perlman (Chancellor of the University) can be proud of this wondrous study they have produced, but I say don't waste our federal and state tax dollars for what they apparently believe enhances the 'research' study status of the university (more research grants and dollars = more status)and the 'publishing' credits of Hibbing!
Guess I'll stay home on Halloween so I can avoid undo terror to my psyche......
