An AP story buried in the back pages of my local rag (The Herald Republican) sports the headline "GOVERNMENT SAYS IT MADE IMPROPER FARM PAYMENTS". So you ask, what does that have to do with the headline of mine about medicine?
I posted a reponse on Mike Sylvesters blog the other day about our healthcare "system" and the astronomical costs associated with it. I raised the possibility that if we were able to stop all the bridges to nowhere and all the other government spending on stupid shit, we could probably afford to pay the health insurance premiums for all the uninsured.
The AP story also ran online at the Guardian which is available by clicking above so you can reference it. The agriculture department admits it sent & spent (wasted, if you will) 2.8 BILLION DOLLARS.
That's billion with a B....Now the agriculture dept. is just one agency out of thousands in our government structure, so can you imagine how many other billions (with a b) are just flat out wasted? My guess is GAZILLIONS..............................
We probably wouldn't ever need to raise taxes again....EVER....if we just wouldn't spend billions of dollars on stupid shit, but that'll never happen as long as we keep electing the same old same old........no matter what political affiliation you support, lets all agree they need to sign a pledge that says simply "I promise I won't spend YOUR money on more stupid shit." There should be no liberal or conservative disagreement anymore when it comes to wasting money on stupid shit......
I really hate stupid shit
