Many years ago I was sitting in a college class having a discussion about government waste. Our instructor told us that the federal government had recently spent over $100k dollars on a “necessary research project” that was deemed “highly important.” What was that necessary and highly important research project? A study on how mice have sex!! Add that to the millions spend in Alaska a few years back on a bridge to nowhere (remember that?) and you get an idea of how the BUFFOONS in Congress are wasting YOUR money! Oh and let me remind you of the money sent to Afghanistan to build a highway in the southern part of that country. The money never got down to the highway project itself as all of the “middle men” in Afghanistan were sure to take their share first. By the time they were done there was NO MONEY to build the highway! And the US response? We sent them more taxpayer money and as far as I know that highway STILL hasn’t been built!!
Senator Rand Paul is ranting about just this sort of thing too. Over the weekend he slammed the ridiculous spending going on in DC with YOUR tax money and every taxpayer in America ought to be highly upset. One example of this wild and uncontrolled government spending involved $700k dollars being given out for a “study” to determine what astronaut Neil Armstrong actually said when he landed on the moon. The government wanted to know if he said “One small step for man” or if he said “One small step for a man.” The only thing the “researcher” had to do is listen to the tape of Armstrong and that cost YOU almost a million dollars! More money was spent on fish and a fisherman’s experience with going fishing to the tune of thousands of dollars to! All the “researcher” did was to GO FISHING and then write a report on whether or not he enjoyed it or not!! OUTRAGEOUS!!
Paul recently tried to block a 2 year government budget bill because he said the spending of taxpayer money in that budget was outrageous but the Dems and Reps teamed up and passed the bill anyway and Trump signed it. Paul wants an audit of the Pentagon and its expenditures before they are given anymore taxpayer money and that is an idea I fully support. And while we are at it EVERY government department needs to be audited too!! Continue Reading
