An example of gov't waste. I worked for an agency, this was the philosophy, the first 9 months be very conservative to make sure you had enough money to operate all year. Then in Oct. you checked your budget to see how much you had left. Oct, Nov and Dec we spent like crazy to make sure we spent all that was appropriated plus 10%. This way we could show Central Office that we needed at least a 10% increase in next years budget. The 35 years I worked there, we always got an increase in the following year's budget.
This is what is sad. The agency was important, but what we did that was worthwhile could have been accomplished on about 20% of what we were spending. We created a small unit to investigate problems that existed in the agency, I believe it had 20 members at the time. The unit revealed the problems that existed in the agency during its first year. The unit still exists with about 60 members and still telling the agency the problems initially discovered the first year.
Most gov't programs are very wasteful. The real plus of gov't is they hire people and this keeps them off of the unemployment rolls.
At this time it looks like Charlie Ergin will bend over double to take over S. Ergin must take steps to grow Dish that has reached its limit for Sat. TV. Ergin believes the only way to grow Dish is to move into wireless bigtime. Buying S is probably the cheapest way to enter wireless. I believe Ergin will scrape up enough loans to go as much as $40 billion dollars for S. Even at that price it will be a good deal. Remember he gets over half of CLWR free and they own $30 billion dollars of spectrum.
This is the way I see it.
These are the words of our glorious leader, VP Joe Biden. Let us see if Joe will stand up and demand rigorous laws to deport immigrants that do not believe in and obey our laws.
Report is he could not keep one, his wife happy here on earth. Allah will cast him into hell for not taking care of the 72 in heaven.
Obama could have cast him out of the country 2 years ago for being a terrorist.
We all wanted the # 2 captured. But it was . . . .
A big show of police power with their assault weapons. The capture of the 19 year old youth has a total cost of over a billion dollars. The politicians are crowing in glory, look what we have done, "We got him". . Big war battles have not cost this much. When the public realize what the capture of one 19 year old has cost there will be much stink raised.
Our glorious leader VP Joe Biden says, "if it will save one life then it is worth it". Well Joe I guess you should be taking step to stop immigration from those countries that have different philosophies than ours. Most countries do not believe in the 'Bill of Rights', especially. 1. Freedom of Speech 2. Freedom of Religion .. . . .
Radical believers have demonstrated for you that they are willing and do kill and want to kill us 'infidels'. Get the ban in place, Joe..
Just think 2 young Chechnian muslim jihadists with 2 $100 dollar pressure cooker bombs brings a city of a million people to be locked up in their own homes. People we are in big trouble.
Post office is losing $25 million dollars/day, they requested that they stop Saturday delivery. US congress overrode their request demanding Saturday delivery continue. Congress and the president are on the same page. Spend even if you have to charge it.
These names show up on other message boards. Scam/spam appears to be all lies.
Ask your self what good would this law do? Nuts and criminals get their guns from sources other than legit stores. Now it will cost millions to enforce the gun control law that was up in the senate. Out of the million back ground checks completed, what did it do but stop the sale of a very few guns. What did the gov't do with the info regarding criminals? What did the gov't do with the mentally ill that tried to buy a gun? As far as I know no criminals were prosecuted, no mentally ill taken off of the streets, so what good would this law do? I say it would just be a waste of time and money.
The Boston bombing presents another problem. Our glorious leader VP Biden says, "If a law will save one life it will be worth it". The bomber used a pressure cooker, Joe should take steps to ban the mfg and sale of pressure cookers.
Laws all have negative side effects and before any law is passed a committee should investigate the side effects before it is passed.
Shame on you. It sounds like you are jealous. Has anyone told you what your wife looks like.
Interesting bit of news. The bombers spent about $100 building the bomb that blew up on the street of Boston, the gov't last year spent about $6,000,000,000, (6 billion dollars) trying to prevent him from doing this dastardly act.
Looks like the terrorist can BK us for a very little investment. This may be their goal.,
Since the world is coming to an end, we just don't know the date and you are worried, I suggest you pray hard that there is a heaven and who ever is in charge of admittance and he/she smiles favorably upon you.
It's one thing to spend your money on assets, but the gov't spends our money on waste. If Obama and congress would just eliminate those programs that are and have been proven over and over to be pure waste, the amount of taxes collected would pay for all of our needs.
We must elect some patroits to congress and the presidency.
We must figure out how to get congress to vote for term limits. This is a near impossibility. If they vote for term limits they are voting to give up their job. Our congress men are not patriots, they are con men.
Liberals have imported a lot of middle east people into the country that do not have the same values and philosophy as the American constitution gives our citizens. There is a lot of terrorist thinking built into many of these imports.
Remember, it was Obama's idea a year + ago for this sequester.
You need to keep in mind the gov't is scraping the bottom of the barrel to continue its unbounded spending. Obama finally realized that if you take all of the rich peoples money you do not have enough to spend what he wants. The place to take money is from the middle and low class people. This lowers their standard of living.
This is the goal of terrorist. They hope to scare you half to death to the point you give up living.
The liberals need to change their philosophy and stop importing radical nuts into the country. Illegal peons stand head and shoulders above the radical nuts.
I remember years ago one of the most beautiful women I had the opportunity to date, her 'crack' was absolutleyly rotten.
This spammer goes by more than one name. He shows up on the auto boards and some bank boards. It appears that what he posts is lies or his dreams.
