Let's Cut Some Spending: U.S. tax dollars to study Mexican soundscapes - whatever those are

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: U.S. tax dollars to study Mexican soundscapes!

From Sen. James Lankford’s website:

We also had a grant that was done studying colonial Mexican soundscapes. Now I’m sure colonial Mexican soundscapes are fascinating, but we paid for a researcher to travel to Mexico and then to be able to write a series about the sounds of colonial Mexico and how they could be used to be able to influence communities.

The Merriam-Webster dictionary defines 'soundscape' "as a mélange of musical and sometimes nonmusical sounds."


HUH?


What the heck are we...wait, are THEY, spending OUR tax dollars on?
