“There is nobody in this country who got rich on their own. Nobody. You built a Mexican male brothel in Tijuana, good for you. But I want to be clear, you did it because the United States government paid Mexican male prostitutes to remain disease free. Your customers were able to return to your brothel without succumbing to AIDS because American taxpayers paid them not to get AIDS.
“Now look you built a Mexican male brothel, great idea, Allah bless. Keep a hunk of it. But part of the underlying social contract is you take a hunk of that and pay it forward to the United States government so it can study why lesbians drink too much or why Thailand prostitutes read more Baudelaire.
The study is called “Conditional Economic Incentives to Reduce HIV Risks: A Pilot in Mexico,” and uses a grant from the National Institute of Health to pay male prostitutes in Mexico City. The prostitutes were placed in different groups and tested for sexually transmitted diseases. For every six months that they remain clean, they receive a payment that is larger or smaller depending upon their group.
Though the dollar amounts paid to each prostitute are small — they must remain poor enough to continue in prostitution, of course — the study has already cost nearly $400,000.
Drew Johnson of the Center for Individual Freedom wondered if bribing Mexican prostitutes was the best use of the taxpayer’s dime.
“At a time when the federal government is hiking taxes, raising its debt ceiling and drowning in ever-deepening debt, the last thing Washington needs to do is ship our money to Mexico City to give a cash reward to prostitutes for not catching Chlamydia or Gonorrhea,” he wrote.
I suspect some government officials have a certain “personal interest” in the outcome of this study. But if we’re paying terrorists, who not also pay male prostitutes? It’s just taxpayer money and they have lots of it.
Pete doesn’t really need to get his kids braces. The Mexican male prostitutes need that money.
Donna doesn’t really need new shoes. The male Mexican prostitutes need her shoe money.

America Mexico. You didn’t build that. Unless you voted for him.
