And they would have the benefit of the Big Ten's Committee on Institutional Cooperation (CIC), which claims to receive 12 percent of all federal research funds for its members, totaling $3.5 billion in 2006-07.
Now that means that the grand total is about $29.25 billion.
And we got what for this money?
No one can figure out how to cap the oil leak. No one can provide us with a cheap substitute for gasoline. No one has a cancer cure...
Heck, outside of getting immediately drunk again they can't even find a hangover cure.
Yet we are spending $100. per person each and every year on research.
I'm serious. Somebody tell me what we're buying with all this federal money being dumped on the universities. I mean besides scare papers on the man made global warming hoax designed to get more money next year.
I think we should just stick it up a pigs butt and yell "Soooey!"
Wait. To a great extent that's what we have done.
