Feds Spending $2.2 Million
to Study Lesbian Obesity

Washington Free Beacon, by Elizabeth Harrington

Original Article

Posted By:MissMolly, 9/6/2013 5:29:23 AM

The federal government has spent $2.2 million studying why three quarters of lesbians are obese despite sequestration-mandated budget cuts that critics warned could “delay progress in medical breakthroughs.” The National Institutes of Health awarded an additional $682,873 to Brigham and Women’s Hospital for the study on July 17. The project had received previous grants of $778,622 in 2011, and $741,378 in 2012. Total funding has reached $2,202,873. The project has survived budget cuts due to sequestration, which the NIH warned would “delay progress in medical breakthroughs.” The study, being led by S. Bryn Austin, an associate epidemiologist at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, sets

Of course they are, without the sequester it would have been more.

I will take a stab at answering that question for nothing. They hate men and subconsciously do not want to appear to be attractive. Now, please give that $2.2 M back to the military where it belongs.

Because they are failed heteros who became lesbian in desperation. Sad, but the same is true of a lot of gays.

She wanted to preserve them for her fellow travelers?

Lesbians are fat because they eat too much and don´t exercise enough. Common sense would tell you that.

Hmm...... Obese lesbians.

Talk about a target rich environment for a "study".

No doubt the conclusion will be that gravity is discriminating against them.

There solved the problem for the "investigators".

I recently got lectured aggressively by some of the younger members of my family for opining that I had noticed some of the women I know who are clearly undesirable by current standards of beauty were pairing up and becoming parents. A few years back those women were with less desirable men. In another age they would have been the old maid, unmarried aunts . . . . now they are lesbians.

Being obese is not a symptom of same sex attraction, its a symptom of depression, anxiety & self hatred and not exclusive to universally UN-happy gays [alcoholism & commitment disorder also high]. 99% of federal grant/study money is Payola to good little comrades who´ll promote Das Govt´s propaganda.

Well here´s my theory, which, I maintain is just as viable as any other crackpot theory. It´s the testosterone. Women in heterosexual couples get a dose of male pheromones whereas lesbians do not.

As for any scientist wondering why gay men and lesbians are different, let me be the one to point out that men and women are different.

Why People Think Adelina Sotnikova´s
Figure Skating Gold Medal Was Rigged

Adelina Sotnikova and her many Russian fans are very happy about the 17-year-old´s new gold medal in figure skating. The rest of the figure-skating world isn´t as enthused, and some are even claiming that Sotnikova benefitted from Russian judges and a hometown crowd, and that without that outside help, she could never have beaten South Korea´s Kim Yu-na and Italy´s Carolina Kostner. "If Adelina was not from Russia, she would never get those marks," Dave Lease, America´s figure skating expert boyfriend, told The Wire on Thursday night.

Public Sector Cuts Part-Time
Shifts to Bypass Insurance Law

WASHINGTON — Cities, counties, public schools and community colleges around the country have limited or reduced the work hours of part-time employees to avoid having to provide them with health insurance under the Affordable Care Act, state and local officials say. The cuts to public sector employment, which has failed to rebound since the recession, could serve as a powerful political weapon for Republican critics of the health care law, who claim that it is creating a drain on the economy. President Obama has twice delayed enforcement of the health care law’s employer mandate, which would subject larger employers to tax penalties

The Lesson of Dunkirk

Politics is often like war. Unfortunately, politicians, the media and the voting public seldom have the same degree of realism and discipline with which professional soldiers fight wars. You can indulge your emotions and base your decisions on wishful thinking in politics, in a way that you are not likely to when your own life is on the line in battle. One of the most dramatic and heartening events of World War II was the miraculous evacuation of British troops trapped on the beaches of France in 1940, at Dunkirk. And its lesson is still relevant today. The British troops were in

Confession: I love the food at Waffle House. (Hashbrown preference: Smothered, Covered and Chunked.) So when I came across this U.S. map that detailed the number of Waffle House locations by state -- as best as we can tell it originated at DeadSpin -- I was more than a little interested. And, because I spend my days (and nights) thinking about politics, I immediately began looking up the presidential performance numbers in states with Waffle Houses versus those without them. (Snip for map) Here´s what I found. Mitt Romney won 16 of the 25 states that have at least one Waffle House.

A rump band of Beltway conservatives has seen the enemy and it is not Harry Reid. It is Mitch McConnell, whose scalp is apparently worth blowing yet another shot at a Republican Senate majority. There´s a new dividing line in the conservative movement—between a majority who´d like to win against President Obama, and a handful who´d like to win some scalps. It was on vivid display last week during the Senate debt-ceiling vote. Republicans were looking to avoid a fight they were destined to lose.

You’d think someone whose very life and livelihood are all about history would be a little more mindful of it – even the bad bits.

He began to make good on that pledge yesterday by announcing that he would enact new fuel standards for heavy-duty trucks. Along with other new regulations that are being promulgated without benefit of the approval of Congress, the big truck rule is part of the president’s effort to show the world that he is working to save the planet from climate change.

By far the weirdest feud in American media and politics right now is the alliance of Donald Trump, Breitbart.com, and, now, Sarah Palin against BuzzFeed and the reporter behind a piece suggesting that maybe Donald Trump´s political aspirations were insincere. The whole thing is funny mostly because it necessitates the question: Why on Earth is anyone defending Donald Trump? This whole kerfuffle began a week ago, sparked by BuzzFeed reporter McKay Coppins´ hysterically comprehensive review of Trump´s weirdo pseudo-campaign. Appearances in New Hampshire, flights to Florida, a fervent insistence that Trump was considered important and legitimate as a candidate. It´s

The rocker said he was sorry for using “street fighter terminology of subhuman mongrel,’” and admitted "I did cross the line.” Nugent said he should have used a term such as “violator of his oath, the Constitution” instead.

Sarah Palin has made an endorsement in Texas. She’s backing tea party leader Katrina Pierson over Rep. Pete Sessions. In a Facebook post, Palin notes that Pierson’s “life’s story is full of hardships she has fought to overcome, which taught her firsthand the importance of self-reliance, hard work, and the blessings of liberty.” One of those hardships includes a 1997 arrest for shoplifting. As the Dallas Morning News reported on Valentine’s Day, “In 1997, five days before her 21st birthday, Katrina Pierson, then named Katrina Lanette Shaddix, was arrested on a charge of theft of greater than $50 and less than $500.” Pierson,

Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, may be the brightest light to adorn the Republican Party in many years. He knows how to make the case for conservative ideas, pointing, for example, to the contrasting fates of Detroit and Houston to illustrate the superiority of conservative policies. So it´s particularly galling to see that rather than train his fire at President Barack Obama and the liberal machine that cocoons him, Cruz has become a one-man wrecking ball against Republicans. His most recent foray into sabotaging his colleagues concerned the debt limit increase. Because Speaker John Boehner sent over a "clean" debt limit bill,

How much more are black people in this country supposed to take? On Saturday, a Florida jury failed to convict Michael Dunn for the callous murder of Jordan Davis. Though he was convicted of three counts of attempted murder and also on a gun charge, a mistrial was declared for the first-degree murder charge. He will face substantial jail time – perhaps up to 75 years on the four charges for which he was found guilty. Prosecutor Angela Corey has also publicly declared her intent to seek retrial on the murder conviction. However, she is the same prosecutor who oversaw the Zimmerman

Listening to pundits talk about the potential 2016 Republican field, you’d be forgiven for forgetting about Rick Santorum. The former senator’s strong second-place showing in 2012 shocked—even scared—the GOP’s kingmakers, who saw in him an abortion-hating firebrand with no chance of beating Barack Obama. So it’s no surprise that today, the party’s mainstreamers are acting like he’s old news, again dismissing a Santorum presidential candidacy. Not that he cares. He’s too busy plotting another possible run at the White House. In recent months, Santorum has gathered his inner circle of longtime advisers to sketch out a presidential campaign. He’s scheduling trips to

FRESNO, Calif.- Federal officials say many farmers caught in California´s drought will receive no irrigation water this year from a vast system of rivers, canals and reservoirs interlacing the state. The U.S. Bureau of Reclamation announced Friday it will continue to monitor rain and snowfall, but at this point there´s not enough water in the Central Valley Project to give water to farmers. Last year, Central Valley farmers received 20 percent of their normal allowance, and that figure is now set at zero percent. This marks the third dry year for the state, and Gov.

As American voters watch ObamaCare continue its Godzilla-like rampage across the national health-care landscape, it´s worth considering the collateral damage this political monster may be doing to the Democratic brand itself. What if ObamaCare´s problems become a metaphor for the modern Democratic Party? Two portents emerged the past week. The United Auto Workers suffered a humiliating defeat at Volkswagen VOW3.XE -0.49% in Tennessee. And days before that loss, voters San Diego elected Republican Kevin Faulconer mayor after he teed up his opponent as a captive of the city´s public unions. Two big constituencies sacked in a week.
