Zero Tolerance for Clowns

Zero Tolerance for Clowns

Congressional Update: The Omnibus Federal Appropriations Bill continues funding for the absolutely-useless-beyond-belief Community Based Abstinence Education (CBAE) program.  The current version of the bill reduces CBAE funding from $122 million to $94 million.

But $1.5 billion has already been wasted on this malarkey over the past 12 years without discernible benefit. Enough is enough.

Sane citizens are attempting to end this wasteful lunacy by drawing attention to a $800,000 CBAE program where Gospel clowns juggle machetes while telling kids to keep their pants on. Good try, but that’s not strong enough to stop this nonsense.

This is: simply introduce an amendment to change the name of the program. No congressman wants to have to explain why he voted millions for the Bristol Palin Teen Sex Abstinence Program.

 Contact the President and your representatives today.

    Some state governments have refused abstinence education funding from the Feds, citing the restrictive requirements of the program and its ineffectiveness.
