Talk about a stimulus package.
The National Endowment for the Arts may be spending some of the money it received from the Recovery and Reinvestment Act to fund nude simulated-sex dances, Saturday night "pervert" revues and the airing of pornographic horror films at art houses in San Francisco.
The NEA was given $80 million of the government's $787 billion economic stimulus bill to spread around to needy artists nationwide, and most of the money is being spent to help preserve jobs in museums, orchestras, theaters and dance troupes that have been hit hard by the recession.

I'm not going to confirm that this story is true or false, because come on its FAUX news. But the National Endowment for the Arts previously received funds under Bush. They are screened to receive aid and grant money, which they then give to San Francisco Art Organizations.
Did you whine when Bush gave them money?

This did happen, the NEA was funded and they gave that money to the same SF Art Organizations that they are now. Many of you say you disagreed with Bush's policies but that's funny...because I didn't hear a single Republican on CM up to Obama's inauguration day denouncing Bush.
So cut the crap.
