    My point was not that it wasn't invented for this purpose, my point was that the article implied it ws invented for this purpose but didn't provide any evidence that it was.

    Now that it seems clear as to why it was invented, do you think taxpayer dollars should go to it? I don't know if you ever thought it should or not, I'm just asking. Personally, I don't think my tax dollars should help anyone get into our country illegally.

    I don't know enough about it to have an opinion of whether or not it's an appropriate use of tax money (assuming any tax money was spent on it), if some new technology was created, or if it proves to help boarder patrol be more effective or reduce the burden on hospitals that treating people found in the desert causes, then it's probably ok.

    I'm pretty sure tax dollars were spent on it because the school gets tax dollars and the research and development was done at a state funded school (UC San Diego & Michigan).

    I'm reading that you are saying it's okay as long as it helps keep them out but not let them in. If that is what you meant by saying that it's okay if it helps border control and American hospitals, then I agree. I would love to see this backfire on the creators.

    I still don't know how you can think it wasn't invented for this purpose. All the evidence points to it. The name, the people it was made for ect....

    It is unclear if taxpayer money funded this directly. If there was a government grant to fund this specific project, then I would have a problem with it.

    However, the argument that the US government provides funds to these schools and to these professors for other project does not fly with me.
    Is the government funding drug smuggling because they drive on government funded roads?
