This stimulus sign is paid with stimulus money. Advertise that fact with another stimulus sign. And another. And another.

It’s Only 0.001% of the Stimulus. Practically Free!

[Newsbuster.org] Taxpayers Paid At Least $9 Million for Signs Promoting Obama’s Economic Stimulus

At a minimum, taxpayers have spent $9.1 million as of July 2010 on signs advertising the Obama administration’s American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, also known as the stimulus law, according to federal officials reporting estimates to the Recovery Accountability and Transparency Board.

But the cost is probably much higher since the six government agencies that spent stimulus dollars relied largely on sampling to get an estimate of how much money was spent on posting signs near Recovery Act projects.

Most of the signs read, “Putting America to Work,” and they include the ARRA emblem along with the Recovery.gov Web address. While the Obama administration contends the signs provide transparency, Republicans believe the signs amount to taxpayer-subsidized propaganda.

The stimulus stimulates the propaganda industry and the propaganda propagandizes the stimulus debt.

There was a 'rat in the White House? There still IS. And a big one too

Rats, Democrats, Brat-in-Chief. What’s the Difference?

Obama’s special guest at the White House

Some kind or rodent — maybe a rat, maybe a mouse, perhaps a mole — scurried in front of Obama’s podium, drawing chuckles from reporters and rapid clicks from camera people.

Rat infested White House? Must be Global Warming.

So. FauxToesHopper.wordpress.com will temporarily go on without frequent updates. Sorry for that.

NSF’s NSFW Work

Not Safe For Work @ NSF.

Pundit & Pundette: Distractions at the NSF

I really don’t know what to say. From Stop the ACLU and the Washington Times:

Employee misconduct investigations, often involving workers accessing p0rnography from their government computers, grew sixfold last year inside the taxpayer-funded foundation that doles out billions of dollars of scientific research grants, according to budget documents and other records obtained by The Washington Times.

But in some cases it wasn’t so much sleazy exploitation of women and girls as it was . . . philanthropy! Yeah, that’s it!

For instance, one senior executive spent at least 331 days looking at p0rnography on his government computer and chatting online with nude or partially clad women without being detected, the records show.

When finally caught, the NSF official retired. He even offered, among other explanations, a humanitarian defense, suggesting that he frequented the p0rn sites to provide a living to the poor overseas women. Investigators put the cost to taxpayers of the senior official’s p0rn surfing at between $13,800 and about $58,000.

“He explained that these young women are from poor countries and need to make money to help their parents and this site helps them do that,” investigators wrote in a memo.

Would it be sexist of me to want to help them, too?
