Not surprised one fucking bit.

Our government needs our help, they have an addiction. Our government is addicted to our money. Since they always have our best interest at heart it's time we return the favor. We need to have an intervention, for the governments own good of course. It's just irresponsible for us to let people with a known money addiction continue to handle our money. Lets have an intervention now so we can help these sick individuals.

I believe a guillotine would be more appropriate.

There's a fraud waste link on that site to report mis-use of funds. LMFAO like they really look into it with stuff like what you guys are showing us posted directly on their site. That march on DC is essential for us that is from the other thread. We need that to happen and get spread around the web like wildfire.

Do I wonder why?

NOPE!

Politicians stealing from the poor to give to the rich never works.

Tax increases never work in a rescission.



All men should know Honor first, above all else!

Honor is not holding your hand out for something you did not earn.
Honor is not forcing your ideas, or belief on others.
Honor is not something given to you by way of job, or title.

Honor is learned, earned, practiced and respected by all decent men and women.

"Press reports suggesting that the Recovery Act spent $1.191 million to buy 2 pounds of ham are wrong."

Quote:
The references to "2 pound frozen ham sliced" are to the sizes of the packaging. Press reports suggesting that the Recovery Act spent $1.191 million to buy "2 pounds of ham" are wrong. In fact, the contract in question purchased 760,000 pounds of ham for $1.191m, at a cost of approximately $1.50 per pound. In terms of the dairy purchase referenced, USDA's Farm Service Agency (FSA) purchased 837,936 pounds of mozzarella cheese and 4,039,200 pounds of processed cheese.

Sorry guys, it's just not true...

FWIW, this is still a waist of tax dollars. How does this recover our economy exactly?

You know...you think they could take the time to add those little snippets in the FORMAL forms for public consumption.

Wow...and people think they can run healthcare with all its forms? *sigh*

All the food they sliced they gave to the food banks. Be nice if it was true, but I bet whatever the fuck they did no one was fed and it was a useless program.

I remember once when our president told us he did not have sex with that woman Monica Lewinsky. I didn't believe that either.
