As part of a grant program, the State Department is dropping as much as $32,000 for art shows in India that can include puppet shows and poetry slams. When did puppet shows and poetry readings become the standard for helping people in need? Doc Thompson and the guys looked at the latest example of ridiculous government spending on Tuesday’s “The Morning Blaze with Doc Thompson.”

Nonprofit and nongovernmental organizations are eligible for the grant, which will include $30,000 to $32,000 in funding for “social change” performances, the Washington Free Beacon reported. The “Arts for Social Change” program will include 20 performances discussing “women's empowerment, gender-based violence, environmental awareness and pluralism, tolerance, and inclusion," according to the State Department.
