CNS reports the latest waste of your tax dollars:
'The federal government has spent $550,496 on a project that involved conducting “focus groups and in-depth interviews” with American long-haul truck drivers to learn about their sex lives in order to assess their risk of contracting HIV or other sexually transmitted infections.
The project has failed to find any instances of HIV among the truck drivers studied.'
The government may have worded some of the questions a bit too formally. We would suggest that they would get more honest answers in the future if they simply rephrase the questions by using terminology with which the truck drivers can identify. For example:
Question #1: Have you ever hooked your big rig up to a strange trailer Question #3: Have you ever been rear-ended at a truckstop? Question #7: Have you ever made a long haul delivery down the chocolate highway? Question #12: Have you ever gone the wrong way up a one-way street?
We’re just saying...

What Jefferson and his fellow patriots John Adams and Benjamin Franklin wrote was a uniquely defiant document that not only listed their grievances defying King George's oppressive government but also was a declaration of out-and-out war against tyranny. Read More
