Obama's kids can go on two spring breaks though

America's neuroscience initiative
Mind expanding
Apr 2nd 2013, 17:38 by G.C.

AFTER much trailing, the reality is out. On April 2nd Barack Obama announced that America’s government will back a project intended to unlock the mysteries of the human brain. It was, according to the trails, to have been known as the Brain Activity Map. Someone, however, has clearly spotted that BAM, as an acronym, is a hostage to fortune and the project is now to be known as the Brain Research through Advancing Innovative Neurotechnologies initiative. By what is no doubt a complete coincidence, that spells “BRAIN”.

The crucial part of the initiative—the bit everyone had been waiting to hear—is the money. Mr Obama will ask Congress, in the budget he submits on April 10th, to approve $100m for its first year of operation. That is a small amount, compared with the $5½ billion spent each year on neuroscience by America’s National Institutes of Health (NIH). But it is more, even adjusted for inflation, than the $28m spent on the Human Genome Project in its first year.

I think your boy Obama shut the White House tours down because he doesn't want people to see that he's never there working.
He spends his time campaigning, golfing, shooting hoops, and basically living the high life like any irresponsible newly rich bum in Disneyland would do.

"Reviving" That's funny! There have been many people coming forward saying they would pay for the tours to go on. Obama is refusing to let the tours go on. You have to be the most dense person I know of. That has been on the news and on these threads but yet you act as if you've never heard anyone was willing to pay the cost. You must have some wild nights after dancing Jason.
