The PERFECT thread to end 2020 on. Get ready to see how your tax payer money is spent after this last year.



CNS News) -- In his latest report on federal government waste, a project he completes every year, Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) highlights $54.7 billion in government spending that he deems wasteful. Among the items noted this year is the creation of a $6.9 million "smart toilet," which operates with three cameras, one of which can identify a user's *Snipped*


Source.

Smart toilets.

Cameras!

Rear end recognition software. I am sure that software company is gonna make the billions.

I bet the NSA can't wait to sift through all the literal 'Something or other'.

I Retort.

You Decide.

Remember this thread as you spend your measly $600 bucks on necessities.

Still money better spent than the gender studies program in Pakistan.


I would hazard a guess that 99.999% of all government programs are reckless waste. It's almost to the point that it seems they are trying to one up each other on the outlandishness. I refuse to believe that normal folks give any kind of #e whatsoever about a smart toilet or the mating rituals of ants.

It’s my belief a lot of these grants/programs are just cover for black operations or ways to hide where the money is really diverted. The silly program names are just a sick inside joke by the elites. It’s all a massive shell game anyway. I think if the average “uninformed” American really knew the truth about how money is funneled and where it would be a huge wake up call.

Unfortunately no one in the media has the guts to report on the “waste” so it goes unreported. Wonder how much money actually gets funneled to the big media companies?

Just get a Toto Washlet, it's not smart but it'll do things that a regular toilet can't do for you. I'd rather have a nice seat warmer and bidet option with soft mood lighting than a smart toilet any day of the week.

I don't mean to be gross, but I can see ALL kinds of problems with this. I'm guessing it works on wifi?

Ok, there's folks out there who are into watching this kinda thing and I can just imagine some poor soul winding up on Pornhub or the dark net.
Besides that, who would actually buy something like this ? Seriously. Who would want that kind of invasion of a very private function ?
It's not so much the waste of tax dollars, it's that someone thought to invent this.

This sounds wasteful and funny but in reality it is not and its something we desperately need. Without this technology we would not be able to utilize facial recognition on congress members.

It is disturbing, on So many levels.....

This type of waste of tax payers dollars, when citizens are going through hell with lockdowns and crap, politicians saying $2000 is too much for people who have been forced out of business by this “plandemic”, this is what people should be rioting over....

Let's hope the all the Ph(D)'s involved in development are not "ass backwards" with the theories and conclusions 😃

They wont because the majority of Americans refuse to hold their OWN party accountable and the MSM on BOTH sides have them distracted on the wrong doings of the OTHER party where they have 0 influence over and to busy fighting with each other versus the REAL enemy.

Why the hell not , Congress had had their heads up their asses for decades now they want their heads up our asses.

If this doesn't show you they have too much money to spend, throwing money at that # literally.

Instead of turning this responsibility to our representatives, there ought to be a budget week on TV and every line item gets voted on. Just a brief description will do, and it would end half of this "Pork" right off the bat.

Sure you have to get enough people to watch and vote but it's got to be better than leaving to these 435 clowns. If a rep believes in a bill let them get and argue for it for a few minutes. But the people vote no simple majority here make it 70% and gets added to the budget. Can guarantee there will be a surplus left over to reassign to projects people did approve on.

A truer form of democracy. One that eliminates party lines, we should have tech and the capabilities to do this

They could fund it with pay preview... We could be talking billions of extra tax money.
