$100,000 Study to Teach Female Delinquents How to Negotiate for Condoms

Written by Gary North on November 30, 2012

The Feds shelled out $100,000 for a program to teach teenage girls on probation how to get their boyfriends to use condoms after the girls are released.  The girls live in Houston.

There are not enough of them to constitute a valid sample for study: 30 girls. But, hey, there was an extra $100,000 lying around. Why not conduct training?

When the federal government shells out $3.8 trillion a year, no one can keep track of where it all goes. So, some of it goes to bureaucrats with really bizarre ideas of how it should be spent.

I don’t think anyone came to voters and said this. “I’ve got a great idea. Let’s teach condom negotiation skills to girls who have proven in a court of law that they have no moral sense. Let’s teach them how to negotiate with their predator boyfriends on condom use. You pay for it. I’ll administer it.”

As they say: “What’s missing from this picture?” I’ll tell you: asking permission from voters. It will never happen.

“But it’s for the children!” Yes, it is: if we define “children” as convicted teenage criminals.

The state is relentless in finding ways to waste money. People get paid upper middle class salaries to devise these ways. They are way ahead of the voters when it comes to finding ways to spend huge wads of money on projects that are not just hopeless, but silly.

They are spending us blind.

  1. Former Bureaucrat says:

    I worked in accounting for a state agency that doled out federal grant money for programs like this. Most of the money went to pay salaries and fringe for someone to administer the program and someone to do the training. The remainder was spent on traveling to yearly conferences the federal government conducts for many of its programs. Very few attend the actual conference. Instead, they bring their families with them and spend their time sightseeing. Easy pay plus a free family vacation to a different city each year at taxpayer expense.

  2. Yep… Seen it in action myself… And those same people will defend their right to do it to the death… Meanwhile, it would be far better to just neuter these folks instead of giving them the ability to even use a condom…

  3. The Flukes sluts… kinda catchy, heh?


  5. BARB PATTON says:

    It makes my blood boil, and, since it is in Texas I would not mind betting that these sluts are either mexican or black and have had a couple of brats that are living on food stamps as well. It makes me want to puke.

  6. This kind of outrageous spending should be the first on the chopping block. Just like the money spent on prostitute and alcohol in South America. Most of the studies are stupid and contribute nothing to the problems faced. Just like the "war on drugs", 30 plus years of money down the drain and no results. We need to get rid of a lot of these types of programs.

  7. Dang, I moved from Southern California to Houston 6 years ago to get away from this parasitic government stupidity.

    For 8 years I worked for county government (welfare) in the welfare-to-work department, hoping that I could do some good there.

    But instead, over the years I watched new program after new program get launched, and all the programs overlap! Thanks to county handouts, deadbeats and illegals there get free housing, home repairs, food, transportation, child care, job training, cash, etc. This enables them to purchase new cars…

  8. An acquaintance who once contracted with the defense dept. said government funding for war projects versus funding in the private sector was like a firehose on full blast compared to a garden hose with a little trickle coming out. No wonder Washington goes around the globe picking fights to justify all that hardware and manpower.

    The US spends more on new weapons than the next 22 nations combined, and those nations are supposed to be our allies.

  9. Bob Marshall says:

    The US is the number one arms dealer in the world and has been since the end of WWII.

  10. "Use a condom or my pants stay on," I won't hold my breath waiting for the $100,000 to arrive.

    Actually, I think teaching kids not to have sex unless and until they are prepared to handle ALL of the consequences, including possible pregnancy would be a better approach.

  11. Simon Jester says:

    I'll do you one better.
    How about mandatory sterilization for anyone with an income that cannot sustain an adult and a child?

  12. Only if they are seeking public assistance, should mandatory sterilization occur, regardless of gender. I have felt this way for decades; as a republican, and now as an independent.

  13. As orthodox Christians, we teach absolute abstinence until marriage. But like this teaching, your suggested compromise does not address the realities of what actually occurs in many lives of our society. Personally, I teach and feel that abstinence is the best way to go; but if one is bent on not waiting, at least use some form of birth control,. as well as protection against STDs.

  14. "mandatory sterilization" should be reserved for people who make dumb comments…

  15. The road to hell is paved with good intentions.

  16. Must be part of Obama Care.

  17. All you have to do is go back and make them pay for the raising of the child they create instead of the government being the daddy. This is the governments fault by freely giving aid with no name of both parties . It still takes two to create anew life but only one to raise it or destroy it. Hasn't the liberal government heard of tuff love. No I don't think they have. Maybe they will go the way of the British plan, pay young girls for not being pregnet. The other take is that if we increase the willingness to have sex the leadership will not run out of willing victoms of their lust.

  18. Yeah, long as "these sluts" aren't white (which the over whelming majority of them are); because then it would be okay with you. You'd have nothing to pretend to be offended about. Carry on…

  19. You make it sound as if learning how to ask a boyfriend to use a condom is a bad thing. Gary, you have sunk to an all-time low. Better hope your daughters don't get pregnant by the first smooth talking douche they fuck around with, and if you don't have kids (I really hope you don't, because holy crap they're going to be messed up), then you have no business writing articles like this in the first place.

  20. The whole "let's have 14 kids and turn them all into government haters" idea seems to work great in the south.

  21. AMEN to this comment. Having taught accounting at two very large community colleges for many years, I have many former students in touch with me. Those that work for government agencies send me examples of such waste; obscene hardly is strong enough to define the word. These massive new programs that seem to spring out of the air is so full of this waste. People with zero skills and intelligence are appointed as executives and high administrators at outrageous salaries.

  22. Read Ann Barnhardt's screed on defense contractors. Her theory is that the taxpayer is overcharged by a factor of 10-20 times per project and that the waste goes into multiple layers of non-essential middle management salaries. This is done with the full knowledge and consent of the government, which runs the whole thing as a stealth middle-class welfare project. An eye-opener.

  23. Nice language, Shane. Exactly what I'd expect from your side of the aisle.

  24. Why not they are already teaching them how to do homosexual sex with pride. Teach them every infanticide and debauchery they can think of. We know they can not teach them to read and write. They have to teach what they know.

  25. Guillermo Villarreal says:

    Just take away the “entitlment” of paying for birth of the babies this kids have and also stop helping financially to bring them up and you will see how quick this practice will stop. People have to be made responsible for their actions.
