Let's Cut Some Spending: $7 million for toilet cameras



Remember the absolutely critical Omnibus spending bill Congress muscled through at the end of last year? It was 4,000 pages that no one read and cost taxpayers $1.7 trillion.

In our Let's Cut Some Spending series, ForAmerica will chronicle parts of the 2021 and 2022 spending bills from a variety of sources that you probably don't know about - programs, grants and spending of all kinds that should have never happened in the first place and many that are still happening.

Today’s offering: $7 million for toilet cameras!

The New York Post reports:

Toilet Cams
Cost: $6.97 million
Butt’s up, doc? Scientists from Stanford University used nearly $7 million in funds from the National Cancer Institute to build an artificially intelligent toilet system that films the user’s nether regions. Just like your fingerprint, the researchers claim, your derriere has up to 37 unique creases...
The toilet’s internal cameras and computers analyze the user’s urine flow, track time spent on the bowl, and evaluate stool to gauge its owner’s overall health. The data is regularly uploaded to a secure one hopes internet cloud. However, the Stanford team acknowledges, “To fully reap the benefits of the smart toilet, users must make their peace with a camera that scans their anus.”

The federal government is gross in general but this takes it to a whole other level.


As inflation rises and millions of Americans break their backs to provide for their families... this is what their tax dollars are going toward?


It's disgusting in more ways than one.
