Default Obama Stimulus funds "Perverts Put Out"


Stimulus money for the National Endowment for the Arts is supposed to be “restricted specifically to job preservation. ”

But a look at the list of NEA stimulus projects reveals that the money is being used instead for sexual titillation. Fox News reported on some of the eye-opening projects here.

Straight from the National Endowment for the Arts website, you can check out the list for yourselves. Highlights:
· $25,000 to CounterPulse in San Francisco, California that just held this past Saturday (July 25th) “Perverts Put Out” which urges one to “Join your fellow pervs for some explicit, twisted fun!”. The picture accompanying the announcement is a nude man onstage at a microphone.
· $25,000 to the “Marsh, a breeding ground for new performance” in San Francisco, California. The first two performances listed under the Marshes “playing now” calendar are: “East 14th: Tales of a reluctant Player” and “Lettuce Town Lies.” East 14th is described with the blurb: “Back in 1970’s Oakland, his stepfather forced him to be a straight A, God-fearing church boy - but he wanted to be just like his dear old Dad. Too bad he didn’t know dear old Dad was a pimp.” The blurb for “Lettucetown Lies” states: “He’s Gay. He’s Asian. He’s coming of age in Lettucetown, aka Salinas. If that’s not bad enough, he’s got a crush on a hick. If that’s not bad enough, his friends think fun is blowing up a field of lettuce. If that’s not bad enough, he has to sneak to the highschool bathroom to buy drugs and Donna Summer records. Adolescence! It’s fun, it’s lies. In Lettucetown.”
· $25,000 to the San Francisco Cinematheque in San Francisco, California. The website’s calendar states that next season will be announced in the weeks ahead but the News tab describes recent Co-presentations such as a documentary on “the legendary underground filmmakers Mike & George Kuchar” and thier film “Thundercrack” of which a reviewer raves: “Witness if you dare, the world’s only underground kinky art porno horror film, complete with four men, three women and a gorilla. Ecstasy so great that all heaven and hell becomes just one big old Shangri-La!” First mention on the website’s Archives tab is Treasures IV: American Avant-Garde Film which includes Peyote Queen. Peyote Queen is billed as: “A classic of the psychedelic tendency … An attempt to visually render the wealth of kaleidoscope visions of peyote, the hallucinogenic cactus ritually used by the Indians of New Mexico” … an “… exploration in the colour of ritual, in the colour of thought, a journey in the depths of sensorial disorder, of the inner vision, where mysteries are represented in the theatre of the soul.”

· $25,000 to Jess Curtis/Gravity, Inc. in San Francisco, California. One of their most recent works is the Symmetry Project where nude couples are mounted on each other in various poses. Note in the first pictures nude children are present with nude adults.
· $50,000 to Frameline in San Francisco, California which is described in its Mission Statement as “Frameline’s mission is to strengthen the diverse lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community and further its visibility by supporting and promoting a broad array of cultural representations and artistic expression in film, video and other media arts.” In January they presented “Desi’s Looking for a New Girl” that is about “J.T., a young Latina dyke, has three passions: her skateboard, comedienne Marga Gomez, and her friend Desi (not necessarily in that order). When Desi’s girlfriend dumps her for a younger woman, she journeys down breakup road with the requisite mourning and attempts at dating and recovery. Desi’s family and friends help and interfere every step of the way, setting her up on an array of blind disasters…dates… with the “perfect new girl.”
I admit that I was skeptical of the stimulus package. Rather than pay higher taxes to the government, I was going to spend money on unimportant things, like clothing and books for my child or putting money away for a future college education. I apologize to my fellow citizens for being so selfish and cynical. The projects listed above are much more important than the needs of my family. I am glad that President Obama and Vice President Biden have kept their promise to go through the budget with a fine-toothed comb to cut out any waste. Once again, I apologize. I will never question the judgment of the Democrats in Congress again.
"Be of good comfort, Master Ridley, and play the man! We shall this day light such a candle, by God's grace, in England, as I trust shall never be put out."
