To be honest I was very disappointed.  This is all small fry stuff.  Total Federal spending in 2015 was $3.9 Trillion.  That's $3900 Billion!  This 38 page "waste report" adds to a little over $1 Billion, that only amounts to 0.026% of the budget.  Wasting time on this is like rearranging deck chairs on the Titanic.   The big Elephants in the room driving the out of control spending at the Federal Level are Social Security, Medicare, and the Military, in that order.  Until we deal with those issues, nothing else matters because we are headed off a cliff.  Of course those are all hot button issues that no one wants to touch.  While I like Rand and believe he is the best choice, I don't agree with his methods here.  Seriously look at a pie chart of Federal Spending.

This is just playing politics, I get it but I am not a fan.

Agreed, though I wouldn't have said it so eloquently myself. LOL

See comments #29 through #31 on similar thoughts.

And thanks again for the laugh!   ;-)

Even if your very survival depends on it.

This just absolutely sucks.

Seems this is the new DP. Have to get used to it.

As for Kathleen, last I checked, she tried, but was unable to. You can reach her through here:

https://www.facebook.com/groups/840081099438118/845065398939688/?notif_t...

If you don't have FB, let me know how she can contact you and I'll gladly relay the message.

Now where can I get a copy of that cancer thread? Thanks.

"At the top of your comment box there is a little icon that looks like a movie strip."

I'm not showing that Anne. I hovered over each icon and still didn't find it. What is it called? Thanks.

Some will be lost at sea for a while and others will find their own shores. Castaway in a new world we will have to rebuild from scratch. We should concentrate on a new plumbing system so all that sh!t out there can be deported.

It ain't about "What You Got"; it's "What You DO" with what you got.

Kasich, Bush and Christie are all-in in NH.  They are blanketing the state with appearances and ads, I see the latter from here in Mass on the Boston tv stations.

To shrink government is to grow peace and prosperity.

yes. It's down. He says that the site crashed due to that app someone here created to download old user posts. I'm getting the feeling that he is happy the site crashed. He also doesn't seem to give a shit.

but, "AAARRRGGGHH, don't remind me" - LOL. It's infuriating to say the least, when you're raised thinking we live in a "fair" country, that's nothing like "evil" Russia or China. But definitely something to keep in mind and not ever forget.
