  1. I wonder whether as simple due diligence the feds send people to the states once a year to ask them to list the projects that received money and why did they get it. Having to explain this or piss Jesus and any other number of crap items could make for a very, very long day for all concerned. I understand beauty is in the eye of the beholder but for 45 grand there better be more than one beholder,

  2. Like all progtard opinion pieces that defend progtard stupidity and waste, it doesn’t allow comments; so these asshole can continue to exist peacefully inside their little bullshit taxpayer funded bubble world without having to hear any opinions from the little people who pay for all this bullshit.

  3. I would like to see the National Endowment for the Arts cut entirely from our country’s budget. And PBS. And the EPA. And the Department of Education. And the Department of Energy. And that’s just for starters.

  4. Is Ann Carlson a well off Liberal, who simply needs NEA money so her social circle will see her as Legitimate ? Or is she a struggling New York artist in need of Contraceptives thru 2017 ?
