U.S. Government Spends $2.6 Million to Get Chinese Prostitutes to Stay Sober

Written by Gary North on May 10, 2012

The National Institutes of Health spend $2.6 million to persuade prostitutes in China to drink less alcohol.

You may think this was not what the Framers of the Constitution had in mind back in 1787. You may think the Constitution was designed to limit government power. Well, that’s all ancient history. No one in the executive branch believes in “original intent.” What a bunch of guys in powdered wigs and funny-looking shoes thought they were doing is irrelevant today.

The U.S. government has a job to do: to police the world. Chinese ladies of the night are spreading HIV. This must be stopped. HIV infects male homosexuals. So, Chinese FSW’s — female sex workers — should drink less.

If this sounds like a scene discarded from Alice in Wonderland, because it was just too bizarre, you are beginning to understand this report. The cheshire cat is just around the corner. He is still smiling — at the gullibility of America’s voters.

Fox News reports:

Researchers will visit 100 houses of ill repute — a whole hamlet of harlots — to collect data on 700 prostitutes and 150 pimps and madams, referred to as “gatekeepers” in the study’s sterile abstract.

Phase one of the study is intended to research “alcohol use/abuse and related sexual risk among FSWs in China,” according to the abstract — a cold hard look at why prostitutes engage in dangerous sex while drunk.

The study’s director says the information gained from the study will then be used to tailor HIV prevention programs for the bawds from Beihai, a coastal tourist town in Guangxi province, which has the third-highest HIV infection rate of China’s 22 provinces.

The project comes thanks to a grant from the NIH’s National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism, which is also funding a $400,000 study of bars in Buenos Aires to find out why gay men engage in risky sexual behavior while drunk — and just what can be done about it.

How many people are infected in China, total? About 700,000. That is in a population of 1.3 billion, give or take 100 million.

In short, as a percentage of the population, it’s a minor problem in China.

The study — tailored specifically for use in China — was approved in November, and the government has already spent $469,903 to fund it.”The proposed intervention program will be a cultural adaptation and integration of existing evidence-based programs in Asian settings,” reads the study’s abstract, which singles out China as a special challenge because of unique cultural circumstances (and 10 million working prostitutes) there.

When you require American taxpayers to police the world, you have a lot of prospects for government funding. Researchers are busy, busy, busy securing this funding.

Alert readers may recognize this as a follow-up to the $400,000 government study that researched why homosexuals engaged in dangerous sex in Argentinian bars.

The quest for tax-funded knowledge will never end . . . until the funding runs out.

It will not run out because of outraged voters. American taxpayers are too busy watching American Idol to notice.

    It's unbelievable that we as a nation spend our money on such frivolous projects. Maybe we also need to do away with a lot of bureaucrats and programs our government has foisted upon us!
    It's time for a major change in our governance of America.
    Vote them out and pray the new representatives are not corrupted by the special interest groups!!!

    Soooo, we must be paying for this with money that we borrowed from China, right? Obama will advocate rescinding of vouchers for kids in DC but is okay with spending millions on Chinese pimps and prostitutes. Unbelievable. I'm sure Congress approved the expenditure. No? I'm shocked. This is what happens when there is no budget. Obama just allocates money to wherever he wants it to go. He has completely emasculated Congress as a functioning body, not that it was that difficult to tame that bunch of paper tigers. Most are more interested in protecting their perks and status quo and can be counted on not to make waves.

  3. When we reject Yahweh's morality as codified in His perfect law and altogether righteous judgments (Psalm 19:7-9), He promises to make us stupid. Yahweh, as always, is true to His promises.

  4. And will use a little bit of their God given sense instead of stupid sense.

  5. Wait just a minute: I am not sure, but I think that Male Homosexuals would be having sex with OTHER Male Homosexuals and NOT " Female Sex Workers ". HIV would be concentrated in the Male Homosexual ' community ', period. Of course, there would be a few gender confused bisexuals that could infect M.H.'s AND F.S.W.'s, too; a vicious cycle ! How about this- tell the Chinese to stop hunting down and killing Chinese Christians and International Christian Missionarys OR we will DEFAULT on ALL the money we owe them and stop ALL imports of Chinese junk. We will bomb ALL the factories that American dollars have built and if China wants to retaliate, we will nuke them back to the Stone Age. ( Tough Love ) THEN Christianity would sweep China and much of the illicit sex trade would be reduced via good, clean Christian living ? ! ? ! No " study " would be necessary and these Federal Programs would not be necessary.

  6. I for one, am glad this has come to the light of day! Now we know that, "The National Institute of Health", is just one more federal department that can be ELIMINATED, from the Federal government.

  7. The government is to big and the waste is unreal. When I see this and Solyndra and all of the other junk Obama and his hoods have spent money on I go nuts. They never want to talk about eliminating things that doesn't work . Just create another dept. I think all this waste should be done away with first. Then less talk about my S.S.

    Looks like an easy 2.6 million to cut from the budget . Why hasn't it been done already?
