Washington DC- President Obama announced a $100 million initiative to map and understand the human brain. This idea, repeatedly suggested to him by the First Lady and his daughters is primarily geared at helping humanity understand one basic question.
" What the hell were you thinking?"
The President explained that "In these times, when we have a great and vast understanding of the universe, a father can look straight into the eyes of his twelve year old son, and have no idea whatsoever, of why the milk is in the tool chest and there's a hammer in the fridge?"
" or when confronted with Canadians who want to pump abrasive, toxic and flammable slurry through a pipe over the biggest aquifer in the country, or when confronted with Canadians in general"
" or when the Senate Majority Leader gets on the floor of the Senate and filibusters his own bill!"
" The great question of our time is, "What the hell were you thinking?" and a hundred mil to figure this one out seems cheap to me!"
House Speaker John Boehner was quick to slam the president for this "Reckless and unneeded spending. The position of the house majority on this subject has consistently been, we really don't care what you think."
